All elements, flights, transfers, and accommodation, worked out perfectly Thanks yet again Matthew.
Zoe was excellent with handling our trip
Having DialAFlight as a main contact point makes life far less stressful.
Excellent service. Rick is very professional and helpful. Can highly recommend DialAFlight.
Queuing for boarding with hand luggage only at Madrid I was asked to put it in the hold. EasyJet need to rethink their policy on doing this as they obviously know well in advance that there isn't room in the overhead lockers for passenger's hand luggage.
Russell and Travis are very dependable travel agents. A delight to deal with.
I would recommend DialAFlight to anyone who wants to book a flight quickly and easily without filling in pages and pages on the internet.
Excellent - intend to use your services again
Excellent service. DialAFlight rescued my Christmas after I was caught up in the Drone saga at Gatwick. They found me the last seat on a plane to Tenerife after I had been sent home having waited a whole day!
Adam and I want to say a massive thank you to Calvin and his team for all the help and support when our trip experienced difficulties due to the Gatwick Drone incident. They were amazing and even before this happened we couldn't recommend DialAFlight highly enough. You guys rock
Thank you so much for your ALL your fabulous help. You helped a very worried Mum stay calm and I will definitely use your company again and recommend you to others.
Everything went without a hitch. We were very worried by the drone situation at Gatwick and getting the phone call from you to let us know our flight was OK meant a great deal. I'm already recommending you to everyone I know.
My sister recommended you and I think that you are absolutely great. Efficient helpful and pleasant to talk to. I will contact you again for our next break.
First Class assistance as usual
All arrangements worked perfectly
Everything went very well. Only minor comment - no coffee / tea making facility in hotel. Overall brilliant thank you.
Sadie is fantastic. Always true to her word. Never failed to reassure me.
Thank you so much! It was a last minute booking which Dylan handled so efficiently - he even called me the day before to confirm details
Excellent service yet again.
Always well looked after by Kylie and Laura. Thanks
Careful of booking transfers in Tenerife South. Very haphazard and in my case a failure. Better to get a taxi.
It was a pleasure dealing with you. All went well, keep the good work up.
No business facilities or newspapers at City Airport. Gin and tonic sixteen pounds!
Cody and his team were excellent: they picked a great hotel and organised flights with Iberia which included an upgrade to business class coming back and seating in rows which had no one else in them on full flights. Very much appreciated.
Many thanks for assisting in our check-in and getting our boarding passes, Helen. Flights there and back went smoothly. Just a shame about the weather in Spain!
Yet another top holiday. Thanks Harry, Sally and Chris
I appreciated the phone call before our trip to check that all was in order and did we have any questions. Your staff offer a 'personal' service and left a good impression all round, thank you!
Helpful and courteous as always
Always deliver. Makes it all so easy. Wouldn’t go anywhere else
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
