Chuck and Cindy, NY, St. Lucia, LeSport , April 2008

Chuck and I had absolutely no problems at the airport. It was smooth sailing.

We had an outstanding time at Le Sport. It was the perfect combination of activities, relaxation, excellent food, and spa treatments. We would highly recommend it.

Look forward to figuring out where we are going next!  Thanks again, Sophia


Stacy and Chris C., Grand Cayman February, 2006

Hi Sophia,
I wanted to thank you and George from both Chris and I for your help with our trip.
We had a wonderful time. The Marriott was beautiful, I highly recommend that you send others to it. The island itself was so nice and the people were great.
Hope you are having a great day, see you soon.
Thanks again, Stacey and Chris C.

 


Seltzer Family from Baltimore, MD. August, 2005. Cayman Kai, Gardens

Dear Sophia and Staff at E&M Travel,

Our family wanted to thank you for helping us find beautiful accommodations during our recent visit to the Cayman Islands. The vacation home you found for us in Cayman Kai was stunning. The views of the North Sound and the Caribbean beyond from the living room and master bedroom were amazing. The beach was very private and absolutely pristine. The very first day of our stay I saw a huge sea turtle while snorkeling within 30 feet of the shore right outside our home. I also saw a starfish, many lobster, Sargent majors and a puffer fish.

The neighborhood surrounding the Gardens of the Kai was very quiet and peaceful. The foliage around the house was lovely. We were thrilled with the abundance of flowering plants and palm trees.

We loved the layout of the house, there was plenty of privacy for everyone. The Master bedroom was wonderful, with beautiful Island furniture, a Jacuzzi, and elegantly tiled bathroom.

The kitchen, with its granite counter-tops, and all the little extras, was a Chef's dream. We really appreciated the outside grill, as we made many wonderful meals with the fresh catch bought from local fisherman.

The pool at The Gardens was very private and very pretty. Each night I enjoyed a late-night swim under the stars.

We snorkeled all over the Island, finding that the North and East side had some of the best visibility. We saw plenty of Blue Tang, Yellow Snapper, Conch, needle-fish, lobster. Rum Point was also a nice spot to swim. It is a good place for beginning snorkeler. Heritage beach on the North Side had good visibility, and areas near The Reef hotel had good coral formations.

We loved the Botanic Gardens and the Iguana that roamed freely around us there.

Our house was within walking distance to the Kaibo Yacht Club, which was a great place to go for dessert and coffee, and also really wonderful meals.

We did visit Seven mile beach twice during our stay, but much preferred the beauty and solitude of Cayman Kai.

Thank you, once again, for helping us have an amazing vacation.

Aimee L, from Oregon, Bonaire, Captain Don Habitat, diving resort, June 2005

The trip was wonderful.  I just got back to Portland, Oregon and I am tanned, relaxed and a much better diver than I was when I arrived in Bonaire - I'm a happy camper!  The logistics of the trip were very smooth and I was happy with the accommodations at Captain Don's.  I look forward to arranging a trip next year maybe to Belize.  (IF I can find the money again for a vacation - it may be a while.) Thanks for following up with us and  I will be sure to recommend you to friends who are looking to arrange a trip.

Thanks,
Aimee

Alex L. from CT,  Sandals Royal Caribbean, January 2005

Hi Guys;
we're back. we liked Sandals Royal Caribbean -- nice service, lots entertainment.
at the same time it was very comparable to our last year vacation at Sun Village, Dominican for like 50% less money... the bottom line is that we checked sandals, had very good time.
 I recommended my sister in law  to talk to you about her next vacation.
 
Thanks.
Alex

 

Rita D. from MO, August 2004, family of 8, Cayman Kai, Casa DaCosta, August 2004

We had a wonderful time in Cayman Kai at Casa DaCosta.   The pool at Casa Da Costa was fabulous. The beach was OK, but had lots of debris that had washed ashore.  If there was any great disappointment it was that the ocean front was very rocky and shallow there, which made playing in the ocean not very realistic. Lots of debris had washed ashore, so it wasn't an area where you could take a long walk along the beach. The sandy beach between the pool and the ocean was quite nice, though.  There were a few bumps (the water wasn't turned on, air conditioner quit working, our automobile wouldn't start, etc.) but in all cases the staff at North Coast Management (and Andy's Car Rental) were prompt, courteous and eager to help resolve these issues.  GiGi at North Coast Management Company and Janet (the housekeeper) were so wonderful to work with.  They were so kind and helpful !!


Olga R. from PA. Iberostar Dominicus, La Romana, Dominican Republic, August  2004


The trip was wonderful!  Thank you very much for helping me to set it up.  My son enjoyed every day of it - they have so many activities on the premises.  There were many young people from Europe (France, Germany), and many Russian boys and girls from all countries; they played all kinds of sports.  The weather was great all the time.  And then, of course, the Caribbean Sea is wonderful.  I swam from 6 am till 11 pm, and went to Santo Domingo - one day tour, which was very good. 

 

Thank you again.  Best wishes.  Olga


Sunni H from Long Island, NY, Cayman Kai, the Pools House, June 2004 ( a couple with 2 year old child)

I loved it!!!  We had an amazing time and the place was perfect. Next time another island same deal. Highly recommended. Thanks tons!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sunni


Mike and Renee, FL,  Carib Sands, Cayman Brac, June 2004 (been there twice)

It was great.  Everything went perfect.  We got in when we were suppose to and the diving, weather and accommodations were ideal.  Thanks for you help.  We will probably be going next summer as well.

Joe F. from CT, March 2004, Punta Cana, Riu Palace

We had a great time.  We loved it.  The people were very nice, the hotel  and grounds were perfect.  Putting us on the VIP plan was  the only way to go.   
Thank you and look forward to other vacations working with you.
 
Joe

Ellie K. from CT March 2004, Punta Cana

We had a wonderful time! Melia was beautiful and so clean. The beach was absolutely amazing with great weather. We got a room close to the ocean too, so we wanted to thank you for requesting this for us. I would definitely do an Apple Vacation again. The only thing that we would say about Melia is that the food is fair, and we would tell other people to bring snacks from the states with you. All in all it was wonderful. Thanks again for all your help.


Gabriella and Jimmy from NYC, March 2004, Jamaica, Sunset Beach Resort

We had a great time at Sunset Beach in Montego Bay, it was a very nice resort, and a great location. The only thing lacking was the nightly entertainment, we ended up going every night to Margaritaville beacuse there was nothing going on at hotel. I guess that's what makes the difference between a 3* resort and bigger resorts like Breezes or Sandals. The food did not offer many choices either, compared to other resort, but it was delicious. Overall it was a great value, we had a good time and we would go back.

Thank you again for your help, and I look forward to booking my next vacation with you!


Peter K. from CT, March 2004, Punta Cana

We got back from Punta Cana last Sunday very early in the morning.  We had a fabulous time at Sunscape Punta Cana Grand and would highly recommend the resort to anyone!  It's a gorgeous place with a Dominican staff that is truly outstanding - they really do everything in their power to make sure you have a fun and enjoyable stay.  Travel with little Peyton, who turned 2 on 28 March, worked out pretty well since the airline was able to block out the third seat in our row for both flights - this made it much, much easier.  Both flights were delayed about two hours but these were just minor annoyances overall.  We were very satisfied with the Apple reps as well.
 
Thanks for your help in making our trip so enjoyable!

Becky and Telly from NYC, Secrets Excellence, Punta Cana, August 2003

The trip was GREAT! We stood at Secrets of Excellence". It was paradise... Too short to say the most. Service was great.. Food was wonderful.. I have recommended it to all my friends who have boyfriends.... Thank you very much for your help.. I definitely will be in touch with you because I want to take a vacation at least once a year.. If you happen to come across any good deals to wherever..... Let me know.... Once again.. thank you...


Mark M. from NY, April 2003  Riu Merengue, Dominican Republic

We very much enjoyed the Riu Merengue last week. The hotel is excellent, especially for the price paid.
Thanks for your help with this particular vacation. I will definitely keep you in mind for our next vacation.


 

Bill and Joanne from CT, April 12. Stayed at Hilton Coral Costa Caribe, La Romana , Dominican Republic (and year before in Coral Costa Caribe)

The vacation was fantastic! The people in the DR are the friendliest people I have ever come across.

The property was very nice, although a lot smaller than Canoa. It had a lot of children. The ocean was perfect for kids. There was a man-made reef off the coast that made the swimming beach extremely calm all the time. The SCUBA was good. The operation is much smaller than at Canoa - the boats not as good for diving. Actually, we took one look at the boats and almost canceled our diving. The dive masters are very good, so once we started diving, we felt comfortable. We took a day trip to Catalina- a SCUBA paradise. I haven't seen marine life and coral so beautiful since Cozumel.

As you know, our flight down was delayed almost 6 hours. When we got to the hotel, it was about midnight. They knew we were coming and had no problems. Thank you VERY much.

There was one potential disaster on the return. Lo Prieto tours did not send the transfer to the airport. We had a feeling we were in trouble when we made the transfer reservation in the middle of the week.The representative, Jade, was very young and not very swift. She took our reservation while conducting a personal phone call. Since we had that "feeling" about the transfer, we went to the bell captain after only waiting 10 minutes. He was great.. He called Prieto tours, found out they made a mistake, got us a cab, and had the tour company reimburse the cabbie. We got to the airport two hours before the flight. Less experienced travelers would probably have been in trouble.

The food was better than at Canoa. Beautifully presented! The Mexican restaurant was the best place to dine. The trip was an overall success. We are developing a love for the DR. We took a half day city tour. Santo Domingo is a huge city. The historic and tourist areas are kept up very nicely. Hopefully, we'll return to the DR soon.

Thank you for being the very best travel agent! 


Armand D. , Raleigh, NC, January 2003

We had an absolutely awesome time in Punta Cana. The Catalonia Bavaro was first rate with service and friendly people plus the Apple Reps were extremely helpful and friendly (both at the hotel and the airport!). Since we told our family and friends about our trip they have been asking when we can all go together which brings up my next question.. 


Gary S.  Cayman Kai, Cayman Island

We've been to Grand Cayman 6 times and this was the best place we've ever stayed. It was just "as advertised." Thanks for your help.


Fernando A., A family of 5 from Santiago, Chile, stayed in Sunscape resort in Punta Cana

IŽm just returning home from our outstanding vacations at Sunscape Punta Cana. Everything was perfect. Transfers in and out, assistance at airport and resort, and of course the hotel itself. My family and I, had a wonderful time together. Thank you very much for all your assistance and be sure (I hope!) that in the future weŽll be in contact for a new vacation experience.

Best regards,


A family from Boston, MA with two teenagers, they spent a sailing vacation at Bitter End Yacht Club, British Virgin Islands, April 2002.

We found paradise!!! We couldn't have found a more perfect place for a vacation - and we certainly will go back each year and bring our friends too!  Everything was wonderful We all learned to sail and had a great time going out in the boats every day. The sailing school staff were the best! They gave us tons of personal attention and were skilled and patient.
Thank you for all of your help in getting us there!
Sincerely,
Lorraine


Brandi and Hudson from Maryland. Our youngest clients, 8 months old twins!
St. Lucia, Windjammer Landing, August 2001. This family had our youngest clients travelers, two twins, 8 month old. They stayed in Windjammer's villa. Windjammer Landing provided nanny for the whole stay. 

We loved our trip. Everything was perfect the nanny was awesome and it allowed Hudson and I a much needed break. Thank you again!!  

I don't know what was best. the family vacation villas, the blue ocean water, the diving lessons and other activities, the shopping and different site seeing tours, the food, the swimming with our babies or the wonderful nannies provided by the resort. it was all so perfect we can't wait to do it again. thank you, thank you. having twin babies the idea of a vacation seemed very remote, you made it happen. thanks again for a wonderful first family vacation that was actually a vacation for all of us!!!


 

Trisha B. from Connecticut, Punta Cana trip, Punta Cana Beach, April 2001

Hey there George, The trip was wonderful!!  Thank you so much, we could not have asked for a nicer vacation!

Jerry R., Iberostar Punta Cana,  July 2001

The trip was great and more than meet are expectation. I have been to a lot of resorts in Europe and none can come close to this. Thanks for the help and planning.


Louise N., Punta Cana, July 2001, family of 4, Allegro Bavaro.

Thanks so much for your help with our trip to Punta Cana. We had a great time and look forward to more trips with Apple Tours. Thanks again!


Christy and Robert M. , June 2001, Jumby Bay, Antigua

Jumby Bay was INCREDIBLE !  We would recommend it to any and everyone.  In fact, we stayed 3 extra days, we liked it so much.  For several days, we were only 2 of 8 people total in the hotel.  You talk about SERVICE.  They couldn't do enough for us.  I have never had better food, and the rooms were absolutely beautiful.    Please recommend it to your other clients.  

Thanks again, for everything.

Jim and Amy B. , NY,  Paradisus Punta Cana

Oh my goodness. Up to our expectations???? That place was perfect. We expected it to be nice, but we didn't expect what we got. It was like being in a completely different world. We are definitely going back there again.

Thanks for all your help.
