Lovely Vacation

P & K, (trip to Coconut Beach Resort St. Lucia)
Travel consultant: Heather Hines,

It was a lovely vacation. When we got to the resort, the concierge gave us the info we needed immediately, then gave us some time to get settled before giving us a tour of the resort.  She or any other concierge was available during working hours to answer any questions.  Since I can’t eat milk products, instead of the plate of tortilla chips and cheese dip we would have normally received in the room, we got a plate of fruit.  We received snacks most evenings in our room. 

The beds were very comfortable and although we faced the ocean and it was really wavy, we couldn’t hear anything in the room.  It was very soundproof. 

Every morning we had breakfast on the verandah. It reminded me of the big old verandah’s you’d see in the old south of the states. It was lazy, laid back and a la carte. 

We ate at the buffet one evening and the rest was the two theme nights around the pool and a la carte restaurants. It was some of the best food we’ve had yet at any resort. 

The St. Lucian people were some of the friendliest we’ve met yet on our travels, remembering us from one day to the next and giving us hugs when we told them we were going home.

Thanks for organizing this vacation for us. 

Overall I would rate the resort a 9.5/10 (lost .5 for country music and allowing loud guests to rule).

Fantastic Trip

Betty, (trip to Rocky Mountaineer - Journey Through the Clouds)
Travel consultant: Heather Hines,

We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The hotels were exceptional and the food on board the train was yummy all the way and kept everyone full, as was the food at the hotels - expensive but very good.

All the travel was great. We actually changed our time to leave Banff to later in the day and were able to visit the town which was fun.

The only thing I would change is taking two days in each of Jasper, Lake Louise, and Banff so we could explore the areas more. The country and mountains are extremely nice. Actually, Lake Louise was still nearly all frozen, only the outer edge had started to thaw. We walked around it anyway and the waterfall at the end was also still frozen. We lucked out and actually had rooms facing the lake which was neat.

Saw many bear, elk, long-horned sheep, deer, etc. from the train and also along the way. We did the Skywalk and so did others - it is scary and the trees are so far down but we weren't going to go all the way and not do it.

Thanks so much for getting all this done for us.
