Excellent service as always. Wouldn’t use anyone else.
Impressed with the efficiency and pleasant nature of your staff.
Will use DialAFlight again, without a doubt. Stress free holiday planning. Highly recommended
Very good trip outbound and inbound - will definitely call next time needing a flight
Your arrangements fine. On the outward flight the leg room was very tight for a four hour flight.
Belinda was excellent.Very good to deal with
Great communication with email and contact personally a nice touch before our journey.
Helen - you were excellent as ever, thank you.
Been booking flights with Helen Jones since 1993 and always received top professional service. Have recommended one or two friends to use her too.
Everything as expected
Ryan always goes over and above when it comes to helping and hence we always use him for booking hols or flights.
Excellent customer service bar none.
Vinnie did us proud as always
EasyJet good. Petit Palace in Santa Cruz a good location to use as base to explore from. Simple facilities but great breakfast.
As always, cheery and knowledgeable service
Very easy to use and a follow up call to ensure all is as it should be. Impressed
Avis being away from the airport was inconvenient
Exactly the holiday we were looking for. Great staff, food, location and accommodation.
Bahia Del Duque great - we got upgraded from junior suite to villa.
Very, very helpful customer service
Nice follow up! Great experience!
Warren made the trip very easy indeed.
I always feel protected by having you behind me!
Emma was excellent, booked my flight and seat and was very caring.
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.
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
