Title: Honeymoon Riu Palace Antillas

The wedding was perfect. Aruba was very nice. We did a 1/2 day excursion set up through De Palm tours for $35 each. It was on an air conditioned bus and took us to "highlights" of the island: the California Lighthouse (can't go in), the "ruins" (basically a pile of rocks), the natural bridge (collapsed over the years), a cute old Catholic chapel and the butterfly farm. The highlights didn't have a "wow" factor, but it was nice to get off the resort and see the island. The beaches and shopping are definitely the biggest draw of the island. I really enjoyed the butterfly farm but I'm nerdy like that. We could have walked to it from the resort. After the sightseeing, the bus dropped us in the capital for shopping at the harbor mall. We bought a few souvenirs and ate at an Italian gelato / pizza place. The food was pretty good and generous portions. We spent about $55 including too for a calzone, lasagna and 3 beers. Other than the highlights we visited, the beach activities, casinos and the shopping, I didn't get the impression there was much else to look at. It's a very small island and a lot of it is still undeveloped desert land. What we saw was plenty for us and we enjoyed all of it. We took a taxi back to the resort after shopping in the capital and it cost about $11. The capital seemed pretty safe. We wandered into a couple of areas that were probably more off the main tourist grid, but we didn't feel unsafe. The islanders just don't bother you. The heat is pretty intense if you're not on the beach and I ended up with a headache just getting on and off the bus for each stop. I wouldn't recommend doing any of the open car / jeep tours just because it's so hot once you get away from the beach area. The resort was nice. It felt more like a hotel than a resort but everything was clean and well taken care of. The staff was very friendly and as fluent in English as we are. I liked that the staff and island population in general were not pushy in trying to get you to buy things or sign up for their water sports. That was one thing about the RIU Palace in Punta Cana that I didn't like: they let they water sport people come on the property and badger you. The recreational activity people contracted by RIU in PC were like that too. There was none of that in Aruba even though it was the same company. The buffet was pretty good and very similar to Punta Cana. We only did 2 restaurants on-site. We did the steakhouse and the Italian. Eddie didn't care for the Italian at all. We stopped in to the Sopranos piano bar and the Smokey Joes BBQ restaurant offsite. Both were within walking distance. Had a good time at both and he got the American Beer he had been craving. The Aruba beer is less than desirable. American beer is $5-$7 depending on where you go. One tip to your other customers doing the all inclusive packages is to take your own cup for the pool. The cups they bring you are small and when you want to drink, you want to drink!! We took our own. The only disappointment we had was the honeymoon amenity. After stressing to make sure we had the wedding invitation and marriage certificate, all we got was a cheap shot glass and a towel folded into a heart shape. We really expected a bit more than that. The airport going home was a pain. Our shuttle picked us up at 11:15 for a 3:25 flight and we needed every minute of it. It was very disorganized and over crowded. One reason it took so long is that you go through US customs in Aruba and not when you get back to Atlanta. Even so, It should not take almost 4 hours to get through security and customs! They said that was pretty normal tho, so you might want to keep that in mind for the future. We loved that we could walk out the front door of the resort and be in the midst of a very nice, safe, cosmopolitan hub. The mall in that district was called Paseo Herencia. Shopping, restaurants, night life were all just outside the resort. We walked down to the district every night. It was a very nice trip and we will probably go back. We wished we could have stayed longer because so much of the trip was eaten up by travel but we are glad we had the chance to visit. DeAnna and Eddie

Jamaica Honeymoon

Testimonial by: Andrew and Nora Bonaventura
Thank you for following up with us. We had an amazing time in Jamaica. Everything worked out smoothly, and we really appreciate your help with that. We were concerned at first, but you definitely helped ease those concerns and made our honeymoon great. The property was nice, the country is beautiful, and the staff was absolutely amazing. The restaurants were really good too. I did not end up playing golf. They did explain it all very well to me, but I just never really found a time that I wanted to go. Also, thank you for setting us up with the guest program. We were going to do that, but we forgot when we got back, so thanks for taking care of that. You were very helpful finding us a new place after the Cabo disaster, and overall our honeymoon was fantastic. We actually already decided this will not be our last trip to Jamaica. Thanks for all you did for us to make the honeymoon great. Drew and Nora

 

European Honeymoon

European Honeymoon

Testimonial by: Katie
Hi Jamie! The trip was WONDERFUL. Really, couldn’t have been better (unless it was longer). Thanks for all your help with the planning. Rome was definitely our favorite place. You just can’t beat the history there. The train rides were great—we got to see some beautiful scenery and the overnight train cabin was very nice. Also, GREAT job with the hotel in Munich. I would definitely recommend it to others. It was just a few minute walk to the U-Bahn, and was fabulous. Very clean and modern, and we were very impressed with the customer service. P.S. Thanks for arranging the up close and personal meet and greet with The Pope... lol

 

Cancun Vacation

Testimonial by: Brian LaHue
We (my wife and I) just got back from the best vacation of our life's! I just wanted to say thanks to Mark Bliss. Mark recently worked with us to find the perfect destination for our 10 year anniversary trip. Mark spent several hours with us to understand what we were looking for and listened to everything that was important to us. The resort was a perfect fit for our health and fitness conscious lifestyle and diet. Every detail of our trip was taken care of and the weather cooperated too, even during hurricane season. Mark was able to get us a better rate than the travel websites and also secured several upgrades (emergency row seats on the plane for my long legs and upgraded travel insurance as well). I would recommend Bliss Travel for anyone looking for a high quality travel experience. Thanks!

Globus Ireland Tour

Testimonial by: Richard & Helen
Our trip was a wonderful experience. Everything went as smooth as could be. We landed about 7:00 a.m. and Hugh Davis (our tour director) arrived about 8:30. In the meantime 2 other couples arrived who were on the tour. We became fast friends with one of the couples almost immediately. They also come to Sarasota in the winter and we have already been invited to their Super Bowl party. Our trip was a wonderful experience. Ireland is so very scenic and we saw and experienced so many wonderful and exciting happenings. All of Globus directors have been very good, but I do believe he was the best.

Wonderful Cruise

Testimonial by: Will
We had a wonderful time on our cruise. Disney does everything just right. We can't wait to go again. Thank you for the photo albums and frame. It was waiting in our stateroom and the kids loved the surprise. We had a great experience with the Dolphin encounter in Cozumel. It was very expensive, but worth it! The trip was great and we had no problems with the travel plans. We actually like this resort more than Marriott or Hyatt hotels. It was much friendlier and the food was great. Im sure Vicki would tell you that the desserts were great!! As for the diving we had a great time and saw 10x what we saw in Aruba. Thanks again for all your help, Will
