DialAFlight are always wonderful to deal with. I used them in the past and because of covid I remembered to use them to book a flight. Was surprised and thoroughly pleased that their service is just as wonderful as all those years ago! Have been recommending them to everyone I speak about my experience. Thank you for being so efficient, professional and fantastic to deal with!
It was good going out and normal coming home. The wheelchair people were on time so thank you all for your help
Very friendly and efficient
Great service and staff
Very impressed again. Returned from Madeira after three and a half months and 7 or 8 rebookings and it worked seamlessly. Assistance for Mary my wife available at every stage.
Fantastic service from Lucas, particularly after Covid results delay at Heathrow. Calling Dublin car hire company to ensure smooth late pick-up. Would not have got to the funeral of my uncle without DialAFlight. Thanks as always. We'll be back when the restrictions ease.
You did what said you would
Always very helpful
We appreciate your quick response to our flight being cancelled and rebooking for the next day. Also a big thank you to all staff. It has been a very difficult year for you all and we are hoping this year the travel industry will get back to some normality.
Helpful and efficient
As usual everything went as planned and nothing is too much trouble for the staff at DialAFa Flight. Would never use any other agency.
Outstanding performance from Josh, rebooking our flights immediately the originals were cancelled by BA on the first available option and then closely monitoring the situation throughout the Christmas and New Year period, regardless of his own holiday needs. A service and support level that was above and beyond
Harry and Sally very helpful and would definitely recommend them to friends
Professional, helpful, supportive and efficient
When I got to the airport, the ground staff asked me for more information around my medical condition and any special requirements. This was so they could make sure I had everything I needed on the flight. It was actually a really good thing, as I was appointed a specific member of the cabin crew to look after me, and I even got a free upgrade to Club!
Scott is always polite, friendly and professional. Excellent customer service.
Ashley and staff were very helpful and polite.
Special thanks to Lucy who dealt with our problem .
Totally friendly, helpful and utterly reliable people. You can have 100% confidence in DialAFlight
Very, very helpful, quick and efficient
This is the 5th time we have used you and we will definigtely be coming back! So comforting to have Howard resolve our EasyJet flight problems and keep us fully up to date!
Special thanks to Frank and Lincoln, excellent help from both
Sorted out change of return flight straight away. Thanks
Travis is exceptional, what else can I say?
Great communication especially in a time of uncertainty. Flights booked then changed very easily.
Vincent was amazing, went above and beyond!
Nick was, as ever, an absolute star! Without his assistance I would probably still be stuck in Spain. My very great thanks to him and his wonderful team. I have recommended him to many friends who all praise him to the skies!
Very helpful with flight and transfer changes
Hotel was comfortable. A bit remote but we knew that. Food not good. And horrors of horrors they closed the bar at 11 pm. Flights on time. Good service and ideal seats.
Kylie has been great and especially helpful with changing out return flight
Where do we stand on nudity? I quite like it myself, when traipsing from the bathroom to the bedroom on a balmy night or swimming in a moon-lit sea when no one else is around.
But that's not the Formentera way. After a superb lunch at the Gecko Hotel and Beach Club – our extremely comfortable billet on Migjorn beach on the island's southern flank, with glorious Mediterranean views – we head off for a leisurely postprandial but are soon distracted by a couple lying naked in the sand.
THE NAKED ISLE
The man is all legs akimbo, his female companion spread out as if slumber has taken hold midway through a yoga stretch. They are far from the exception.
But, then, this 12-mile long island (a mere 30-minute ferry ride from Ibiza) has long been one of the let-it-all-hang-out capitals of Europe. And one of the most paradoxical.
It's where the languid, carefree spirit sits alongside a strict policy to protect the seagrasses; where construction of new buildings is limited; where you'll find no mega music clubs, not even (unlike its loud neighbour) much in the way of nightlife.
It is the smallest of Spain’s Balearic islands – and is popular as a day-trip destination for people staying in Ibiza. Formentera is particularly well known for its clear waters and long stretches of beach backed by dunes and pine trees. Compared to busy neighbours Ibiza, and Mallorca, nothing much seems to happen on Formentera – and that is meant as a compliment.
The main hub is Sant Francesc, a sleepy village that always manages to wake up in time for drinks and dinner. On a Sunday evening, a group of boys is playing football in the square, using the town hall door as one of the goals, with the white-washed fortress church of Sant Xavier looking on.
There's not, to be honest, a great deal in the way of culture on Formentera – although the Sunday and Thursday Hippy Market in Molar is a good window to the island's soul. The market is more chic than shabby, with whole families coming out to browse and, crucially, to browse at what everyone else is wearing.
GECKO BEACH CLUB
Back at Gecko – a favourite of Sienna Miller – it's all about pared-down luxury. Rooms are on the small side but most come with balconies and some have plunge pools. There's a long, wide pool in the garden on one side of the hotel, a huge lawn with cabanas on the other.
The sea is right there, and at first it's not especially luminous, but walk through the reeds and it soon clears invitingly. Where the water famously is compared with that of the Caribbean is along the northern spit, especially Illetes beach.
We hire bicycles for a day (€6 per bike) and pedal over to Illetes, stopping for a coffee in Es Pujols, the nearest thing Formentera has to a resort town. It's really one main street that leads down to the sea. Unspoilt, unshowy.
A word of warning about Illetes. Time your arrival with care, ideally before the day trippers arrive from Ibiza or after they have left. We make the mistake of turning up at midday and its beauty is somewhat overpowered by the crowd.
We eat our last lunch at a simple Chiringuito right next to the hotel called Kiosko 62, where you perch on stools. My lamb burger does a brilliant job of offering Formentera up on a plate. Cooked pink, it arrives without ceremony in a plain white bun with a slice of tomato on the side. Simple, unpretentious and utterly delicious.
Another extremely popular spot for lunch is Juan Y Andrea which is something of an institution. Open since the 1970s it serves Mediterranean specialties like fresh lobster in glorious surroundings overlooking Illetes beach.
The tables are arranged on the beach and the white-suited waiters walk barefoot. The venue attracts everyone from shipping magnates to movie stars, from ex-Presidents to honeymooners, much like the island itself.
Make sure you book ahead to avoid disappointment
