I want to say thank you for the wonderful service you always give me! Whether it is my husband and I going on a trip for two together, the annual “Girls Trip’s” I take with my two daughters, or our family trips for six, you always give 5 Star, top notch service. You know exactly which resorts to recommend for the type of trip we are looking for. I highly recommend you to all of our friends and family!!
The service you and Judy gave me during the recent Polar Vortex, when I had problems at the Chicago airport was such a comfort to my husband and myself. You ladies go above and beyond. I just want to say thank you and YOU ARE THE BEST!! We are looking forward to our upcoming family trip to Secrets Playa Mujeres. We know it will be wonderful because it was recommended by you!
Judy and Maria,
Our annual winter vacation to a warm climate was planned with the help of Judy & Maria Travel. We’ve found the Dominican Republic is a perfect destination. This year we asked the travel agents to upgrade the resort and they gave us a few suggestions. We chose Dreams Palm Beach (appropriately named) upon the recommendation of our 13 year old granddaughter who loved the Smoothie Bar. We also heard Coco Cafe was extraordinary. So off we went….
As with all travel, patience and a sense of humor are essential – encountering a closed turnpike due to an accident on our way to airport and losing my jacket with matching tote bag within 15 minutes of entering the airport began our vacation.
We are now in the minivan headed to Dreams with one other couple going to the same resort for a second time. They had upgraded, but we told them we had not. Arrival at Dreams became a whole new (but quite lovely) experience. As we entered the resort we expected to check in at front desk to get the plastic ID bands and redeemable beach towel cards. Oh no, the staff whisked all of us minivan travelers to an office setting and proceeded to explain what “Preferred” guest meant. We were dumbfounded and tried to explain, unlike the other couple, we had not upgraded. Dreams staff had computer printout indicating we were wrong. Okay, not the first time we have been wrong, so we decided to go with “Preferred” which sounded mighty good and enticing.
A stylishly dressed staff (later we found out this was one of our butlers) now escorted us to our room. Along the way he pointed at pools, beach areas, and other beautiful places. Another oh no! Our room wasn’t a room but a suite with a large bedroom and a dining/living room combination. Best feature, one full bathroom and one half bath. After 54 years of marriage first vacation without arguments because we could barely find each other in this huge space. Two bathrooms is indeed a dream.
Although we thought that Judy and Maria were the sponsors of this glorious trip, we had no real proof until day 6 (we are very slow learners) when the butler asked if we knew Judy and Maria. So these gracious and kind travel agents were indeed our benefactors. We are the “in-the-dark-tourists” but enjoying every moment at this gorgeous resort with a friendly and competent staff.
Back home to the cold weather we are eagerly planning our next Dreams vacation. With 3 grown sons, their wives and 4 grandchildren we are trying to coordinate a family trip which is not easily done with busy schedules. We’ve traveled extensively over the years (100 countries for me and over 40 for hubby – yes I didn’t always take him), this trip was most memorable. In our mid 70’s we want what Dreams offered – luxury, serenity, beauty. Even the weather was perfect. How did Judy and Maria do that?
A sincere thank you and deepest appreciation to Judy and Maria….until our next trip! Meanwhile how will we manage without a butler, dinner reservations and evening turn down services?
Regards, Bob and Lindy
