Words From Our Satisfied Customers

Hello Tina,

Our honeymoon was awesome! We both wish we were still there. The resort was absolutely perfect and our time there was great. We were both very impressed by the resort and all that they had to offer. The food was amazing and it was extremely relaxing on the beach. I would like to thank you for your help with planning our honeymoon and suggesting El Dorado Maroma. Everything was awesome and we wouldn't change a thing. Thanks,

Clayton H. - El Dorado Maroma

Hey Tina, just wanted to thank you again. We had a very relaxing time . The resort was great , staff couldn't have been nicer and lomas travel worked out well. The weather was unbelievable (a little too hot at times ha) and the drinks were cold and slushy. Thank you again for your help and guidance. Back to reality!  All the best,

Mike and Kris - El Dorado Royale

Ketti worked with us back and forth for almost a year planning our honeymoon to Iceland.  We knew it would be a once in a lifetime trip and we wanted to make sure it was stress free - Ketti made it absolutely flawless! She gave us awesome suggestions and ideas of where we should go and she booked everything for us once we got our timeline down.  It made for a really easy trip knowing everything was prebooked and pre paid. We were give such a thorough itinerary and tour packet we didn't have any trouble navigating from day to day.  Both my husband and I have traveled some but never used a travel agent until now.  We will most certainly work with Ketti again in the future. so grateful!

Mari G. - Iceland

Just wanted to send you a note and thank you for all you did to make this such a wonderful time. We so appreciate all the follow up calls etc. We had a Marvelous time and no worries. The hotel was perfect and so was all the staff. I did send a note to them too. Thank you again Tina and God Bless!

Burt Higgins Wedding - Generations Riviera Maya

Tina,I wanted to thank you so much for recommending Azul Fives to me. It was an amazing resort! My whole family loved it. My wedding was absolutely beautiful ( I will send you pictures once I receive them) I honestly would not change one thing about my wedding day, it was everything that I could have ever wanted. The resort  was so pretty, I loved the villas and how the resort really wasn't just another cookie cutter kind of resort. Every one that works there is so polite and would go out of their way to help you. It was an amazing week. My whole family is definitely considering going back next October and making it an annual family reunion, and it's all thanks to you!Thank you again!

Tara - Wedding at Azul Fives

Tina, We are having an AMAZING time!!!  Like everyone says, everything happens for a reason.  We could not ask for a better honeymoon.  This is by far the best vacation Melinda and I have ever taken.  We are highly confident that we are having a much better time than we would have had in the Virgin Islands.   We want to thank you for everything you have done for us.  The room upgrade (with the infinity pool) is amazing.  We enjoy this multiple times a day.  Also, we heard yesterday that you arranged a couple’s massage and spa treatment for us on the beach.  That was extremely thoughtful of you.  Tina, we are so appreciative of everything!!!  You are such an awesome person.  We cannot wait to meet you soon and enjoy drinks/dinner and getting to know you.  We will definitely contact you once we get back to let you know about our entire trip as well as to setup a date for us to meet you.Thanks again for everything!!!  We are very grateful to have such an amazing travel agent and new friend.Lots of love,

I just wanted to say thank you very much, Theresa, for all your help and let you know I had a wonderful time. “There were some big changes at the very last minute before everything was due and Theresa did an excellent job handling the situation with professionalism and kindness.  She was nothing but helpful and never made one negative comment about the unforeseen circumstances.” Wedding was amazing, could not ask for better weather.  I hope you and your family had a great Christmas.  Good luck with the upcoming New Year, have a great day!

Tina and Val, Thank you so much for all you two did to make our experience so enjoyable! It was so perfect, Everything about it! Everyone was so amazing at the resort and  Patty took excellent care of us once we were there! Thank you for all you two did to make it happen! I appreciate all your hard work and everyone is already wanting to start planning a return trip! Everyone has been so accommodating starting with the two of you and including all the staff at Seasides. We were blown away daily by how hard everyone works there and how hospitable you all have been. Thank you for allowing me to relax and not worry about things getting done. I knew I could trust the two of you and everything was just so easy. The way it should be! All our guests had the most amazing time too! Tyson and I have been having Cancun withdrawals and cannot wait to return! :) Thank you, Thank you! Much love, Lindsay and Tyson 

Lindsay and Tyson - El Dorado  Seasides Wedding and Honeymoon

Just got back from El Dorado Maroma - Palafitos and I'm blown away.  Me and my wife went there for our honeymoon and we couldn't have picked a more perfect location.   Everything was taken care of by the staff and we truly felt like royalty.  The rate we got from  Tina was incredible and it wouldn't have been possible for us to go without her help!  She was fantastic to work with and I would recommend her to anyone.  Now its time to think about our next trip to Palafitos! Thanks,

Mari G. - Iceland 

Ketti was fantastic to work with!  My friend booked her to plan her destination wedding in Mexico.  Ketti was very responsive and provided us with a ton of information.  She even sent reminders for payments coming up and was super organized.  I will surely use her for future personal trips.  Thanks Ketti,

Michelle - Destination Wedding

I cannot say enough good things about Paradise Weddings and our agent Ketti Menne who helped us plan for our destination wedding in Mexico.  Ketti provided us with a full service experience from picking out the resort, working side by side on the contract and handled every step of booking and travel for us and our guests.  I would never have been able to pull this wedding off without her and she made this whole process as easy and stress free as possible.  I don’t know why everyone doesn’t do a destination wedding!!

Thank you again Ketti for helping to make our wedding day and trip one we will never forget,

Melissa - Destination Wedding

Loved it! From the beginning this experience was awesome. Our agent Trinity was so helpful, she worked with us until she found exactly what we wanted it . We went  to El Dorado seasides. It was our first time in Mexico and we loved it! Everybody was so nice,they really know how to treat tourist, the place is beautiful too!  The beach was amazing. The food is great and so is the entertainment. We're definitely going to try to come back next year. 

Maria Griffith - El Dorado Seasides

Trinity, 

I can't thank you enough for planning this amazing vacation for us!!! We had the most amazing time! Casa Velas was beyond perfect! Like literally perfect!  There weren't many people at the resort because it was the beginning of off season so we were spoiled rotten! The weather was perfect and the staff at Casa  Velas was beyond amazing and accommodating! They went above and beyond to make sure that we were comfortable and having the best time possible.  We  had a great time on the Vallarta Adventure, I will attach a picture.   I just asked Raymond what his favorite thing was about our trip and he said by far the service, the privacy, and the beach club!  It was so nice going to the beach and having everything taken care of, we just showed up and they set up spots for us  by the beach or pool and immediately brought us drinks and guacamole.  Actually every time I sat down by the pool or beach they brought us the best  guacamole!  I honestly can't say enough about how amazing Casa Velas was.  I would 100% recommend it to anyone wanting a nice relaxing vacation, in a 5  star place.  Ohh and did I mention the food?!? The restaurant at the hotel was soo good! Every night they did a special menu which was 5 or 6 courses and we  had ZERO complaints and loved everything.  The wait staff was so spectacular and treated us like the king and queen, which was a real buzzkill coming back  to reality.  One night I wasn't as hungry and I only ate a few bites of my main course.  The waiter looked at my plate and asked me if "I would like something  fresh from the kitchen". He thought I didn't like it and wanted to make me something else I would like.  He was so sweet and thoughtful! They even sent a special happy birthday cake and champagne to our room one night for Raymond's birthday! Speaking of thank you so much for your welcome gift!!!! The  chocolate covered strawberries were the perfect touch and much enjoyed once we got in our room. I honestly can not thank you enough for recommending and booking this trip for us! I will def be going back.... But in the mean time we are already thinking  about our next trip and when we want to go.  Thinking over New Years if you have any great ideas!?! THANK YOU SO MUCH! And I look forward to planning our next adventure with you!

Casa Villas - Mexico

Oh man, where to start! My husband and I went to El Dorado Royale in Mexico! Lets see... When we got there we were greeted by Pedro (everyone  called him Peter) and he was a little ray of sunshine :). he was so friendly and did everything that he could to help us out. Even when I left the camera on  the plane :/. Well when we finally made it to the resort everyone was so friendly from the moment we stepped out of the bus! The entrance was beautiful..  and the Champagne was amazing :) lol. When we got to the reception desk we spoke to Olga and she helped us get set up in our room, she was so  sweet! Finally when we got to the room I was in awe! it was beautiful! Well the rest of the 5 days we were there we spent the time in the swim up bars, on  the beach, and of course in almost all of the restaurants! The pools were so relaxing especially with a drink in my hand! And the beaches! oh man! I have  never really been outside of Texas except for a couple of states, so I have never seen sand so white and water so clear! I was having a hard time getting in the water because i'm not used to seeing fish swim up to me :). But I got used to it! During the 5 days we went to Playa Del Carmen (5th Avenue). It  was a very fun experience and we had been told to go to a restaurant called La Parilla! So if you get the chance to go.. do it! i can not express just how  beautiful the resort was, how great the food was, and how friendly everyone was! There was always someone there to greet you with a smile, and help  you with anything you needed! I was AMAZING! I cant wait to go back and experience more of the things that I missed! I also want to thank Trinity Taylor!  She is the one who set up our trip. I couldn't be happier having someone so amazing set up something so special for my husband and I! Rebecca H. El Dorado Royale in Mexico Oh man, where to start!

Rebecca H. - El Dorado Royale

Paradise Weddings and Travel provided a beautiful destination wedding experience for our friends.  As a guest of the wedding, we had an amazing trip at an exquisite resort.  Not only was everything organized and perfectly planned, they included extra amenities for us as we were celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary in addition to attending the wedding.  Thank you, Paradise Weddings and Travel, for the trip of a lifetime! 

Kelley K. - Destination Wedding

My wife and I worked with Hillary on booking our honeymoon to the Dominican Republic. Neither of us had ever been there and she recommended a fantastic resort and excursions! She had everything mapped out for us and took care of all the details. We had such a wonderful time thanks to her!  
Kaitlin & Eric A. - Honeymoon - Punta Cana

Getting married in the Riviera Maya, at Azul Fives was an unforgettable experience. We always wanted a destination wedding and Hillary Ogle at Paradise Wedding and Travel made our dreams come true. We were drawn to Azul Fives because it has a little bit of everything. The resort was beautiful and very well taken care of. There were a variety of dining options that met our large group needs. There was an assortment of activities on site that kept all ages of our group busy and entertained. Rooms at the resort are fantastic, there is plenty of room to make yourself feel at home. The staff at Azul Fives went above and beyond for our party, by upgrading rooms, to taking care of every last detail for our big day. The beach was very clean and the ocean was crystal clear. The resort had enough seating at pools and the beach to accommodate all guests. We could not be happier with our experience at Azul and cannot wait to return.  Hillary made the planning process stress free, by taking care of everything with ease. She is a true professional and is very knowledgeable about traveling and finding the best deals. We highly recommend using her as you plan your wedding, honeymoon, or next vacation.  

Jennifer and Nate P. - Azul Fives Destination Wedding

Hillary was the best to work with! My husband and I traveled on our honeymoon, neither of us had been to HI and had no clue! Hillary gave us great recommendations for excursions and lead us to a great hotel! She was very accommodating and kept its budget in mind as we planned! Our trip was fantastic and we would work with Hillary again no questions asked!

Amy & Paul Y. - Honeymoon in Maui, Hawaii

My sister and I just returned from Cancun and it was AMAZING!! Libby set up everything just how we wanted.  We had an awesome time at the resort, the food, excursions, and travel to and from the airport was top notch! Breathless was a great resort definitely great for groups, girl/guy trips, weddings. Etc.  Their tag line is “welcome to the party” and it lived up to those standards.  Libby will be a part of every vacation from here forward!

Aleesha M. - Vacation to Mexico

After researching my dream Mexico all-inclusive resort honeymoon online and nailing down all of the specifics I was looking for, I thought I'd run it by a travel agent to see if they could meet / beat the price and ask for advice on what I had chosen. Well I found Sherie and she made that dream come true. She matched the internet price, including all of the specifics (flights, room type, honeymoon package, etc.) and confirmed she'd been to the resort and loved it. She even booked us her preferred transportation which was safe, on time and had clean air-conditioned vans. Instead of paying 100% up front to a website, I was able to speak to a real person, leave a deposit and pay the remainder after our wedding (a huge relief during peak vendor payment time in our wedding planning)! Sherie is sweet, knowledgeable and genuinely excited to help you book the perfect vacation. Although she suggested some alternatives to look into, she wasn't pushy and totally allowed us to choose our original selected resort without any pressure. In the weeks leading up to our departure, I was able to ask her questions and she helped us a ton...especially with what and who to tip...we would have been clueless and the staff at the resort really appreciated it! She also provides specific advice for the country/location of your trip such as cultural norms, security tips, weather-related advice, etc. If you're apprehensive about booking with a travel agent, don't be. It's exactly the same as booking with an online vendor, except you get to speak to great people like Sherie that have actually been to these places and will be there to help you with any questions or issues along the way.

Mexico Honeymoon

Trip was fabulous! The resort was perfect for our group.  The size was small enough where we felt comfortable with the kids running back and forth from the beach, pool,  bathroom, snack bar, etc. without having to follow them around each time they moved (which was every 10 minutes J).  Service was great, weather perfect  (just 1 morning of rain), food awesome.  Used the kids club some… not a lot though.  Was better for the little kids – but the morning it rained they all went in there.  They also popped in for face  painting, puppet shows and a couple cooking things. Carlos was the entertainment guy that we really liked.  My niece who is 14 isn’t the most outgoing, but he would always make an effort to ask her to come  play volleyball, etc and introduced her to  a couple girls her age. We also really liked Paul the Sommelier.  He would coordinate our meals at the next restaurant each night for us and I’m sure serving 20 people at 6pm each  night wasn’t easy to coordinate and he would have food/apps waiting literally right when we sat down including an array of kid friendly food (chicken nuggets,  pizza, etc). We also really liked the guys down at the beach who assigned the bali beds.  It was kind of a pain to wait each day to sign up for the next day (and usually  people lined up 1 hour before) – but by mid week they were making sure we had the same bed each time and even called our room or came looking for us to  ask if we wanted 2 next to each other because our group was large. Spa was also great!

Azul Beach - Mexico

Honeymoon Excursion in Europe Before our wedding we barely had time to take vacations and therefore wanted to plan an all-out honeymoon through Europe with events ranging from skiing in Austria, to sightseeing all over Italy, to partying in Paris. Given our lack of knowledge of all things Europe we had no idea how to even start to put such a vacation together. Lucky for us, we found Kim Molina. She had a wealth of information and idea’s at her fingertips to help us put together our perfect honeymoon. After a brief consultation, she arranged every detail of our honeymoon from flights to transfers to hotels to activities. She knew of or found the best hotels, most reliable transfer services, and best locations for activities. Given all the stress of planning our wedding, we would have never been able to plan or conceive of such a perfect honeymoon without her. We will definitely go to Kim in the future to help us with all future vacations. Thanks, Kim, you’re a lifesaver! 

Jack & Ashley C. - Honeymoon Excursion in Europe

Sherie’s hard work, attention to detail, and patience are incredible!! I got married on 11/3/18 at Azul Sensatori in Mexico — Sherie helped plan a trip of my 60 crazy guests getting there. Everything went smoothly and perfect! Her knowledge of the locations and resorts make it so much easier to make your decision when planning a destination wedding. She gets a sense of your budget and helps narrow down options for you based on what you are looking for. I am looking to book another trip at the same resort with a big group as a trippaversary, and will be using Sherie again! I had such a great experience with her and would recommend her to anyone planning a trip/wedding/honeymoon! We loved her and our guests had nothing but great things to say about her as well :) Sherie made it soo easy for our guests. The prices were also great for such an awesome higher-end resort!

Wedding at Azul Sensatori

Libby is amazing!  We just returned from a great honeymoon in St. Lucia and Barbados.  We had no idea where to go on our honeymoon and she presented us with multiple (and very different) options.  Upon our arrival, everything from transportation to excursions was booked and it was amazing to have the entire trip laid out for us.St. Honeymoon in St. Lucia & Barbados

Libby is an amazing travel agent.  She booked our airfare, hotel and excursions for our recent vacation to Maui.  She was very pleasant to work with and was always very prompt in her responses to my emails.  The trip was awesome and everything Libby promised.  I would highly recommend Libby for all of your travel needs and will be using her from now on.  Thank you for a trip to remember,
