Perfect Honeymoon in Greece

Rated 5.0 out of 5

We worked with Mike from 58 Stars to plan our perfect honeymoon in Greece — he was amazing the whole way through and put together a trip we will cherish for our lifetime. He was thoughtful with our suggestions, and provided some of his own without every pushing us. He stayed within our budgetary means but made it feel like we had a budget twice the size. Can’t recommend Mike and the 58 Stars team enough!!

DREAM honeymoon.

Rated 5.0 out of 5

We worked with Mike Salvadore and he was absolutely amazing. We decided to go to Bali and Mike was able to give us a ton of recommendations as to where to stay and places to see. Our trip couldn’t have gone more smoothly from beginning to end. All flights and airport transfers were smooth as could be. Mike arranged for us to have a private driver throughout our seven days in Bali so we didn’t have to worry about renting a car. If anyone is thinking about planning a vacation, ABSOLUTELY use 58 Stars Travel. They are extremely helpful and professional and I promise you you won’t regret using their services. Going to use them anytime I plan on leaving the country.

Best Travel Agent We’ve Ever Used!

Rated 5.0 out of 5

We can’t wait to book with Jenn again! From start to finish our experience was seamless and enjoyable. I wanted to plan the perfect 50th birthday trip for my wife that was a mixture of relaxing, adventurous, and memorable for this milestone. Jenn was knowledgeable, about the Caribbean and the resorts there. She has much experience traveling to the region and knew the location that fit everything we described, Sandals Halcyon Beach in St. Lucia. It was the perfect fit! She listened to our requests, our concerns, and even answered questions we did not know we needed to ask. She worked closely with the resort and booked everything for us for our entire stay, including a romantic birthday dinner on the beach! All we needed to do was show up! When there, all we had to do was enjoy. And…we did just that! She even checked on us while we were there. My wife and I will be using Jenn again and highly recommend her to our friends and family, well…everyone! Thank you Jenn!!!

Amazing trip to Secrets Maroma

Rated 5.0 out of 5

Retty listens to details and responds quickly. I go to him for all my travels needs. He’s great, patient, and willing to answer as many questions as I have.

I had a concern about the seaweed in Cancun, of course no one could really predict what it would be like. He looked for other opinions but also assured that this secrets would be a nice trip. It was great. My husband and I will go back!

Best Honeymoon Ever!

Rated 5.0 out of 5

Alicia was very attentive and detailed in her planning for our honeymoon. She had great recommendations for our lodging, transportation, and activities! The itinerary was easy to follow on the app, and she included all of our reservation numbers and tickets in one convenient place. I would highly recommend working with Alicia!

Italy Honeymoon

Rated 5.0 out of 5

My wife and I had a fantastic experience working with Alicia. We had a rough idea of what we wanted to see and do in Italy, and Alicia helped to fill in the gaps and provide her own ideas. We would absolutely utilize her expertise again!

Best Honeymoon Ever!

Rated 5.0 out of 5

Alicia put together our Honeymoon to Disney & Universal and we could not be happier. She got to know both of us so she knew just which hotel we would like the best, which restaurants we would like to eat at and even which parks to go to each day. She spent so much time making sure our honeymoon was the best. Thanks Alicia!

Honeymoon of a lifetime.

Rated 5.0 out of 5

Shannon was a fantastic Travel Agent. She continued to help us find the perfect place for our honeymoon. She went above and beyond finding desitinations that werent even an option. It was nice to beable to compare and find new palces to visit. Once I was set on a destitaion, she did the rest. It was fantastic working with her and she made planning so much easier for me. When you are in the middle of planning your wedding, you barely have time to plan your honeymoon. With Shannon, I would definitely plan again.

Most incredible honeymoon in St Lucia!

Rated 5.0 out of 5

From the moment I reached out to Mike, he was extremely helpful, patient, and resourceful. He set up a call with me early in my trip planning to discuss exactly what my wife and I were looking for in our honeymoon. He was able to book us 2 perfect resorts along with excursions that we absolutely loved. Mike was also extremely patient as we had to move our trip through COVID and he was able to rebook everything for us with no hassle or additional fee. It was a pleasure working with Mike and I look forward to booking more trips with him in the future.

Brendan

Awesome Honeymoon!

Rated 5.0 out of 5

Mike quickly put together a great itinerary for us when we presented him with the idea just a month and a half before our departure and was very responsive to emails, even when he was out of town himself. He hooked us up with a WONDERFUL tour guide who personalized our trip and helped out with transportation!

The Honeymoon of Our Dreams!

Rated 5.0 out of 5

I’ll start off by saying that this was the best vacation of our lives – it couldn’t have been better! Working with Mike was a breeze – he made it incredibly easy for us. He listened to what we wanted and made an itinerary, fitting in everything we wanted to do (and we wanted to do a lot of things) and giving us a few options on hotels/activities. The hotels we stayed at were unbelievably beautiful and luxurious – honestly, they were probably the best hotels we’ve ever stayed in. The whole trip we felt so taken care of and special – almost everything we did was private so we could be on our own schedule, and enjoy just us. There were no glitches the entire time because Mike made sure everything was seamless throughout. For a big trip like this we were nervous to leave it in someone else’s hands but we were so so glad that we did. I would HIGHLY recommend Mike to plan your vacation! Mike, we can’t thank you enough for making the honeymoon of our dreams come true!

A Trip of a Lifetime

Rated 5.0 out of 5

Mike did an absolute AMAZING job and made our honeymoon unforgettable. He was extremely patient with my husband and I as our plans and timeline changed multiple times and he was super accommodating. We gave him a general idea of things we wanted to do and he went above and beyond with the experiences he planned. It was so nice to be in a foreign country and have everything taken care of for us (transportation, amazing hotels, experiences and more). He was extremely communicative and answered all of our questions, even while we were on the trip. We highly recommend him to anyone and we will be using him in the future! Thank you again, Mike!

Danielle

Honeymoon of a lifetime!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5

Mike was fantastic. We had never worked with a travel agent before planning this trip so we had no idea what to expect. After some poor experience with other agencies, we were referred to Mike and 58 Stars by a friend and we were not disappointed. He was personable, attentive, prompt during the entire planning process. He made thoughtful suggestions and was never pushy. He stayed within the bounds of our means/budget and delivered an absolutely incredible experience.

Peace of Mind and Heart

Rated 5.0 out of 5

From the moment we met Mike we knew we had met an incredibly kind and thoughtful person. Mike was unlike other travel agents we had met, as he took the time to ask my fiancé and I questions about ourselves, our relationship and what we enjoy doing in our free time. From that information he created an absolutely perfect travel itinerary for our honeymoon in Costa Rica. Mike’s attention to detail is something to admire. He truly thinks of everything, which has been such a relief while planning a wedding during a pandemic. No matter the many questions we asked, the changes we needed to make due to COVID regulations, Mike has always greeted us with warmth and kindness. If you are looking for peace of mind and heart in your next travel plans, I highly recommend Mike!

Perfect Greek Honeymoon

Rated 5.0 out of 5

Let me start by saying I’ve never really believed in the value of a travel agent until working with Mike. He is a travel consultant and truly engaged with us, our questions and our vision. He listens.

We had no problems, all transportation was reliable, accommodations were better than expected, our experiences and added excursions did not disappoint.

We couldn’t speak more highly of our experience.

Perfect Honeymoon Trip to Bali

Rated 5.0 out of 5

We worked very closely with Mike & his team on planning our dream honeymoon trip to Bali and we were beyond thrilled with the outcome! We did 2 weeks in both the Jungle (Ubud) & beach towns (Nusa Dua, Uluwatu) where we were setup with amazing, friendly & professional local tour guides & had safe drivers escort us to each daily excursion throughout the Island. Our experience was 5 stars, each activity was organized with the utmost detail, our pickup times were exact & we had a blast relaxing & exploring all that Bali had to offer! Mike was very diligent with getting back to us via email & calls if needed during the itinerary crafting phase & he organized a list of contacts incase we needed to get in touch during the trip. I highly recommend Mike & his team for anyone’s future honeymoon travels

Incredible Santorini Honeymoon!

Rated 5.0 out of 5

The entire experience was amazing. Flights went great, Santorini was incredible. The hotel we stayed at was probably the best hotel we have ever experienced. The Itinerary you made was an absolute life saver, as we literally just followed the entire thing and made the whole trip super easy. 5 for 5 on the entire experience. Thank you so much for all your help, you made our honeymoon incredible!

Great Service!

Rated 5.0 out of 5

Mike was really great and super helpful. He provided great service, starting from advising us on finding the right location for our Caribbean honeymoon (provided a number of great options, and actually informed us on the option and destination we ultimately chose!), booking with the property (we got a great deal and an amazing upgrade), and then helping with any questions we had before or during our stay.

Mike was very helpful and easy to work with throughout the process. He made sure to answer any questions we had. Even with unexpected changes, Mike happily accommodated those changes and responded very promptly to our request. He was always responsive and available. We enjoyed working with Mike. We thoroughly enjoyed our honeymoon and we look forward to working with Mike again for a future trip!

Perfect first tip to Cancun, Mexico!

Rated 5.0 out of 5

Mike helped make booking our honeymoon in Cancun, Mexico so easy and stress-free! We gave him a list of things we wanted on our resort as well as some activities and excursions. The resort Mike found for us was the Ocean Maya Royale, and it was absolutely beautiful! It was our first trip to Mexico and we could not have asked for anything more 🙂 We took a Catamaran boat tour to the Isa Mujeres, went snorkeling in a lagoon, toured a cave, and went ziplining. We had a blast! I highly recommend going through Mike for your vacation needs, I know we will definitely be using his services in the future!

Wow, thanks for this video.

Rated 5.0 out of 5

Wow, thanks for this video. I called Sandals today I never been to anyone before. They recommended this one. It looks fun in your videos compared to just looking at it on their website. I might book it instead of a cruise next year. Do they do glass boat tours? I saw that somewhere when looking at what all some of the Sandals Resorts have. Thanks again for sharing your experience

Royal Plantation is our favorite

Rated 5.0 out of 5

Great job on this video! After visiting many Sandals resorts, Royal Plantation is our favorite. Just because it is small and quiet and the staff treat you like family. We are excited to see the other videos y’all put out on future Sandals resorts. It was SUPER fun, and surprising, to meet y’all when we were in Jamaica as we love your videos! Enjoy the rest of your Caribbean journey! Cheers!

Dunns River has not bad but not great mattresses and alot of repair issues. Patrick was a greatbutler. We weren’t allowed to go to Ochi. We had to pay to go shopping. $45. Still had fun. Best resort we stayed at was St. Lucia.

Married with feet in the sand

I wish I could send you the photos of our Sunset wedding on the beach. We opted to have our feet on the sand rather than the beautiful chapel, but I loved the glass floors in the chapel! Beautiful resort! We’ll be back for our 5 year anniversary! ❤️

I prefer Negril

Rated 5.0 out of 5

I’ve spent a week staying at Montego Bay and I’ve also spent a week at Negril. I also got married at the Negril location. I personally prefer the Negril location, and that’s not just because I got married there. I think it’s more well rounded, I prefer the layout and vibe and so much more. Negril is definitely fun but it’s a lot more busy and more of a party/good time oriented vibe which is good of that’s what you want. But Negril also has options for fun and having a good time while also being less busy as a whole. And don’t forget you can always visit any other Sandals resort for free if you just want to hop around. There are also multiple excursions outside of the resorts. I’d recommend going to Mayfield Falls and Cliff jumping at Rick’s Cafe is fun too.

Hi guys. My husband and I will be at EB feb 2023, our 4th trip there. There is no seaweed on the beach. Some washes up during the night, but they do an amazing job of cleaning it up. So your experience is def due to the time of year. Great video!

Sandals Negril is our 2nd Home. Returning there in 26 more days to Celebrate my Big 70th with our Incredible Butlers Shemoy and Christopher. We stay mostly in the 2 story, 1 bedroom Honeymoon ocean front Butler Suite, usually the same Suite too. Last August we did Royal Caribbean Over the Water Bungalow for 6 nights for my husband’s 70th Celebration. Sandals Negril has our Hearts ❤️

Love the service at Royal Plantation

Rated 5.0 out of 5

Last year while staying (for a 2nd time) at Royal Plantation we contemplated going somewhere else this year – 2023. The Loyalty desk priced out a room in Grenada and Negril. My husband loves how he is treated at RP and how they – the staff, recognized him from the year before! We also thought about trying out Sandals Dunns River. After talking with other guest who had gone to many resorts why they returned to RP, we chickened out and decided to return to our tried and true as we wanted to guarantee a great experience for what will be our last Sandals trip for many years. (ps- our first year in Jamaica we also stayed at Royal Caribbean and visited Montego Bay. And yes the food at RC was great! Our favorite was the Indian Restaurant but they were all good. And RP French restaurant’s food is also amazing. Ochi’s restaurants not so much. Meh)

Sandals Grande St Lucian was muich better than La Toc

Rated 5.0 out of 5

La Toc was the worst Sandals I’ve been to. The food was good, but the wait was an hour or more at every place, the worst being that Italian restaurant behind you at the beginning.

That pool table you refer to is actually a falling apart billiards table. There is a pool table down at the other area, but it’s in terrible shape. (Rails sagging meaning nails go flying off the table, holes in the pockets, unleveled)

Of the two golf courses mentioned, only 1 is a real course, the other (the one at La Toc) is an unkept, cheep, short, 9-hole “course”. The 18-hole course by the Grande is great though!

The butler service brought us cold food and wrong drinks and so we stopped using them altogether.

That view is phenomenal, no questions about that!!

But the beach being closed most of our visit, the fruit-fly infested buffet, long waits at restaurants, poor and unfriendly customer service, and cumbersome butler service made this our last favorite Sandals resort.

The Grande was so much better in each of these categories than La Toc!!
