As usual everything went as planned and nothing is too much trouble for the staff at DialAFa Flight. Would never use any other agency.
Harry and Sally very helpful and would definitely recommend them to friends
Professional, helpful, supportive and efficient

Totally friendly, helpful and utterly reliable people. You can have 100% confidence in DialAFlight
Very, very helpful, quick and efficient
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?
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!
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
Thank you so much our holiday which ran like clockwork.
Even on the Saturday as Tenerife was being locked down, I emailed a question and I got an answer back. Looking forward to my holiday you have planned for me in September.
We had a wonderful time, great location. Great staff who could not do too much for you. Would recommend
Keep on doing what you’re doing.
You were amazing and everything I asked for you did. Will definitely be using you again
Manny, as usual, was brilliant. We had a lot of issues as we were at H10 hotel in Tenerife and Manny helped us sort out change of return flights
Michael was very helpful as usual. He always manages to get me just what I need
We are always pleased with the personal service
Always a helpful person on the end of the line.
I would like to thank Jarvis for a job well done.
Blair is so helpful- a pleasure to deal with. Will always use DialAFlight because of him!Many thanks
As usual, outstanding service in particular we would like to thank Jarvis for his prompt attention to detail.
We had a very good trip to Barcelona over the weekend. The assistance you booked at both Heathrow and Barcelona enabled both of us to bypass queues, which made the airport experience much less tedious.
Another super holiday via DialAFlight with all our requirements fully provided for. A great week relaxing in Tenerife away from the wet and cold back home ...just perfect.
Very impressed with the service. Particularly pleased that you reserved seats for the two flights.Would definitely use you again, and have already recommended your service. Thank you.
Excellent service as usual.
Got us an early fight back from Tenerife without drama. Good work
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
