I wanted to send you a little holiday recap from Jamaica.  I would highly endorse this lovely resort. (Azul Sensatori Negril).  The service they provided was exceptional – we have rarely had such amazing service anywhere we have been before.  Rob and I now want to try this resort in Mexico in the near future.  The rooms were newly renovated, up-to-date and lovely.  There were spacious balconies to sit out on as well.  It rained each day for a time and Rob and I would just go out onto to our balcony and sit til the rain subsided.

The food was top notch in every spot where we ate on the resort.  I loved that they would cater to special dietary needs.  They asked every time we went to eat an had a separate section for gluten free and indicated all of the special gf, vegan choices on their menus.

Both Rob and I wish we had opted for one of the swim up rooms – they are so nice and we know we would have really enjoyed them.  Next time for sure!

The beach here is amazing.  Rob loves to explore and can walk along the beach for hours so this resort was perfect for him to do that.

The only drawback and it is only a small one, was it took almost 2 hours to get to and from the airport.  It could have been much shorter but with stopping at many resorts along the way to drop off guests staying in other spots, it took much longer to get there.  I was glad that you had given us the heads up but once we got there, it was well worth the travel time.  I was sitting beside this lovely woman coming home on the plane yesterday.  They stayed in Montego Bay and she loved the resort they were at but she said the beach was not so great which is good to know as well.  I would rather have a longer travel time to enjoy a better beach for our vacation time.  And knowing the travel time to and from, perhaps the next time we go (I think we will go again), it might be worth our while to just grab our own cab to and from the airport.

I also loved that the nightly entertainment.  It was done outdoors and they had a great variety of things they featured.  One night, they had a group that did this great routine in the pool, combining synchro, dance and gymnastics.  The entertainment was different and so refreshing most nights that we saw it.

By the fall, this resort will be much larger as they are adding on a few more pod sections to the resort. One of the staff told us they hope to have the new area completed by October.

Thanks again Amanda for this great recommendation.  We loved it there and had such a wonderful week away!

Hope to talk soon about booking another holiday!

Amanda was very pleasant and professional in assisting our family to book a winter getaway. She always got back to us in a timely manner -even with the time difference, as we live in a different province. Amanda provided us with some great travel options and valuable facts which helped with our decision making. We had a fabulous family vacation and it was reassuring to know that we could contact Amanda during our vacation if necessary. We had a wonderful experience with Amanda and will consult with her for all our future travels!

My family and I are not experienced travellers, so when we made a last minute decision to take a trip this past March break I needed somewhere to turn for advice. We were not comfortable taking any risks with all the random online services and reviews that are out there, so we gave Amanda at Drexler Travel a call. It was so nice to deal with a person, who I knew had a tremendous amount of travel experience. She was so patient, answering and addressing all my novice traveller questions and concerns, and was always available either by phone or by email when we needed assistance. It was so reassuring to know that if I had any problems at all, Amanda would be there to help. We had a wonderful family vacation, and if we were to take another trip, I wouldn’t do it any other way.

We had a fabulous time and absolutely loved the resort, it was the best of both worlds, the cabins were surrounded by the beautiful horticulture Jamaica has to offer and the beach was just a short walk with a private area owned by the resort. The beach also offered food and drinks that could be served to you at your lounge chair. The staff were always available to help and ensure you had everything you needed to enjoy your vacation. The buffet meals were all amazing as was the restaurant and the chef’s showcase meal.

Working with you was easy and efficient. You made it so seamless and stress-free for us, we would definitely work with you again.

I wanted to send you a big thank you for helping us select a great vacation for our family.  We had a challenge to find a kid friendly resort that would also suit the grandparents.   You were able to find us the perfect small to medium sized resort that offered a range of activities.  I also wanted to let you know how well my mom was treated and I am glad you recommended the added assistance for the airport.

The Hilton Rose Hall in Jamaica was perfect for the 5..  We were there from Jan 18 – 25th and we had beautiful weather, great customer service and enjoyed an awesome resort.  Jamaica never dissappoints and we would recommend this resort to families.  The lazy river and waterslides are a great way to spend hot sunny days.  We never had trouble find a shady place to hang out and found the variety of seating to give us a new view every day.  In addition to the lazy river pool area, you can relax by the beach or sit by the larger rectangle pool.

We were on the 5th of 7 floors and had a beautfiul view of the ocean/golf course.  Our rooms were across the hall from each other which was very convenient.  The front desk went out of their way on day 1 to find us two rooms close together (no issues).  We had read that the elevators were slow but this was not the case.  Very quick and never a wait.

There are 3 great restaurants, plus the buffet,pizza hut, jerk chicken shack and cafe.  Believe me, you are never hungry.  The 3 Palms restaurant at the golf course was definitely our #1 and we went twice.  For those who love coffee, there are 2 cafes.  One on the beach and one in the lobby that make everything from iced coffee to lattes.  You won’t miss Starbucks.

I have some many great things to say about the resort.  The best advice Amanda gave us before we left was to stop reading reviews on Tripadvisor.  I am not sure what happened to some people who gave negative reveiws.  I can’t think of any concerns.  I am happy to share our feedback with any of your customers in the future.

Thank you to Amanda Drexler – Holistic Travel for booking a trip to remember to New York City for my husband and I, along with another couple. Within hours of contacting her, she had looked into the best available places to stay, and provided us with many quotes to meet our departure and budget needs, while allowing for choice as well. She offered to plan our itinerary and shared packages that allowed us to save even more money. At no time did we feel pressured to purchase anything. She also offered us cancellation insurance, which we chose to turn down. Little did we know our flight would be cancelled due to weather in New York city. Cancellation insurance would have given us our money back for all accommodations, etc., lost due to this unforeseen situation. For a small cost it is definitely worth the money if you are not covered for such a time. That being said, the moment this happened we called Amanda and she spent hours of her time trying to do everything she could to make the situation better; a situation that had nothing to do with her doing. In the end she was able to get us an earlier rescheduled flight out of Toronto (something we were denied) and a hotel credit to stay close to the airport until we flew out the next morning (something we were also denied after over an hour of our own time trying to get compensated). Once we made it to New York, we had an amazing vacation filled with fantastic food, sightseeing, entertainment, and time away with friends! Amanda took the time before and after our time away to ensure our trip had met our expectations. Yes, it certainly did meet our expectations! Many thanks Amanda for creating a special and lasting memory that will last a life time.

We recently booked a trip to Las Vegas through Amanda Drexler at Drexler travel. The process was effortless for us with Amanda taking care of every detail from booking the flight and hotel to making recommendations for restaurants as well as the must sees in Vegas. Amanda answered all our questions quickly and completely. We will be calling on her again and highly recommend the services provided.

I’ll admit to being the do it yourself vacation organizer. All that research running through my fingers invigorates me. Yet, for our last vacation to Mexico, I left it completely in Amanda’s hands, and we were very pleased to have done so. Her attention to details that mattered to us, was stellar. She stayed in touch with us before and following our trip to be sure all went well. Amanda is our go to for any travel arrangements.

Holly & Dan T. Guelph, ON

Where do I even begin, Dan and I had the most amazing trip (hands down) at the most beautiful resort we’ve ever stayed at. The atmosphere, staff, FOOD, entertainment and general environment was out of this world. Every single detail was looked after from the time we booked the trip until the time we landed, which when planning a wedding is a huge relief!!! We had a total week of relaxation and we were treated like celebs for an entire week!! We can’t thank you enough and we will definitely be seeking more advise from you on our next trip!!!
