Flights, car hire and hotel all well organized and excellent facilities
Just returned from Crete and had a great time.
So reassuring to know someone always responds to calls and queries quickly and efficiently. Everything was perfect.
I highly recommend the Haymarket hotel, central, good atmosphere not the usual chain type hotel.
Michelle Dooler was a fantastic help and guided us through every stage of our holiday.
You offer a very professional service - second time we have booked flights with you and will definitely use again and recommend to friends
We've been using Luke at DialAFlight for years and are delighted by the excellent personal service he has given us. Would heartily recommend DialAFlight to anyone. It takes a lot of the stress out of arranging a holiday....
Excellent service from Philippa
Great service received from Dominic and Andrew. Was kept up to date with everything. Will highly recommend them to friends and family. Both understood the difficulties of travelling with kids and made it a pleasant experience for us, just by doing simple things like the times to fly to maximise time abroad, to booking private transfers so no waiting around. Great and knowledgeable travel managers.
Gordon as always is the man
Perfect trip and everything was smooth.
Liam was excellent: indeed every agent that we have dealt with in the past has been friendly, obliging, informative and very efficient. Such a pleasure to ring and have our phone calls answered in just a few rings. The service has been top-draw in every way.
Austin delivers again
Absolutely flawless! Tammy is a marvel. Thank you so much
Brilliant as always!
All good as usual
Have booked through Scott for 15 years now. Always delivers for us! Highly recommended.
I couldn’t have done it without Amy H. I am not good with technology.
Tyler is EXCELLENT. Embodiment of true customer service. I have recommended to my friends and I will keep coming back to you. Thank you for your exceptional service.
Thanks Damian and team
Nathan and Malcolm were fantastic. Hotel in great location and super efficient and helpful
Very helpful and supportive throughout the process
The only person I deal with is Aidan Pinder at DialAFlight. Aidan is professional, funny, and extremely knowledgeable. I always receive a call just before a flight to wish me a safe journey, which is a nice touch. Once I threw a hissy fit about a hotel I was staying at, so sent an email to Aidan to complain which he answered and offered advice even though he was on holiday himself….so simply the best!
It is always a pleasure to deal with DialAFlight. We have been a client for many years. Keep up the good work.
Hotel was excellent but too full of children...not your fault but it might help you inform other future clients.
Samuel was excellent and everything was as arranged
Such a great experience. I will definitely be booking with DialAFlight again.
Problem with recent EasyJet booking. Luggage not booked. Otherwise excellent service.
Well done Lloyd and Chloe, great service. Will use you again.
There is so much more to Mallorca than Magaluf. I had never been to the largest of the Balearic Islands before heading to picturesque Port de Soller and, admittedly, prior to my visit, the first (and only) thing I associated with Mallorca was the infamous resort town.
However, from the picturesque hill-top location of the Jumeirah Port Soller Hotel and Spa, which is nestled among the Tramuntana mountain range, you'd be hard-pressed to believe you're on the same planet, never mind the same island.
Just a 30-minute drive north from Palma Airport, this five-star hotel houses 121 sea or mountain facing rooms spread across 11 buildings. All boast a private balcony or terrace, complete with a cushioned sunbed to take utmost advantage of the sea views.
The casual bistro specialises in seafood and regional tapas, including several varieties of paella, but it's the location - at the highest point of the resort - that is its most noteworthy feature.
Book in for supper to enjoy the sunset views over the Mediterranean. The resort's Cap Roig is a more formal affair known for its fresh local seafood and impressive tasting menu that changes seasonally.
While it may be tempting to lounge by one of the hotel's two infinity pools, a 10-minute walk down the hill leads you to the small harbourfront town of Port de Soller, home to the only beach of note along Mallorca's north west coast.
There's a promenade lined with cafes, touristy shops and plenty of water sport and climbing rental facilities.
The area's known for its cycling routes, one of the more famous being the Coll de Soller, which crosses the Tramuntana and connects Palma with the port of Soller. In fact, the resort of Alcudia in the north is a favourite of Britain's pro cycling team, Team Sky, during the winter months due to its challenging landscape.
While I'm the type of person who prefers an exercise bike to a brutal uphill climb, my travelling partner did - successfully, I might add - take on the 38-mile ride, which included 55 switchbacks and six miles of incline.
The area is also a great base for walks and hikes, such as the hour-long trail that takes you to the Cap Gros lighthouse, offering panoramic bay views. For those who prefer to go further afield, there are plenty of tour companies offering Tramuntana mountain treks, both in organised groups and privately guided walks.
On Saturdays, a gentler walk will lead you to Soller town centre where you can take advantage of the extensive pop-up marketplace. Don't want to walk? A tram runs along the promenade to town, about three miles away.
Until mid-afternoon, you'll find everything from jewellery to local artisan goods and fruit - the area is famed for its Navel and Canoneta oranges. In both Port de Soller and Soller, there are also plenty of al fresco dining options available too. And, conveniently, Jumeirah runs a regular shuttle service into town.
Another highlight of the sprawling Jumeirah Port Soller is the Talise Spa which boasts a hydrotherapy pool and ice cave. There are regionally-focused treatments too that give a nod to the citrus groves, almonds and olive oil native to the area.
One thing's for sure: a stay here will banish any preconceived notions you may have once had about the infamous Spanish island. And, for the record, I still have not been to Magaluf.
