Amazing Destination Wedding at El Dorado Royale!
The wedding was perfect and beautiful. The wedding team did a great job!
We are so glad we did a destination wedding! Thank you for everything you did for us, to make our dream wedding happen.
Thanks, the Foleys
Dream Destination Wedding at El Dorado Royale
It wasn't just the best day of our lives.. it was the best week of our lives. I cant thank Kamelyn Bovinette enough for being there and capturing our day. And another special thanks to our incredible travel agent who I couldn’t have had my dream wedding without Lana Sharr . El Dorado Royale, Riviera Maya.
We had the best time at our BDR at El Dorado Royale!!
Tara and I just wanted to say thank you so much for helping us through the process. We just got back last night and I don't think either one of us have stopped talking about it. We're ready to go back.
The whole experience of the hotel was great. The food, service, drinks and hotel itself were everything we could've imagined and more. You made a great sell getting us on the hotel, and everything you said was spot on. Thank you again for helping us find this great property.
We had a great time. We ate at Kampai, D'Italia (twice), Coco's, Chef's Market and JoJo's. We still feel like we missed half the restaurant. Tara was able to see everything at the BDR she wanted, and we feel a lot better about getting prepared for the wedding.
Also, we somehow made it on the Mexico News Network's The Sunny Morning on the last day talking about our experience (we gave you a shoutout ;) ). Gilberto from the wedding sales department wanted us to tell you hi. He gave us our presentation when we were in the BDR. He was great!!
Thank you again for all of your help. It has really made this whole process easier for us.
Destination Wedding of our dreams!!!
We wanted to thank you for putting together a wonderful stay at Azul Fives. We were treated like royalty from the time we arrived until the moment we left. We were upgraded for our entire stay which was great! We were approached by various employees each day who greeted us by our names and asked how we were. They also asked about our guests and if they were happy. We had servers that sought us out to say, “hi,” and let us know that they would be working our reception. One night, we asked the Sea Olive manager about an informal dinner that could sit a large group so that we could dine with guests who arrived to the resort early. Not only did they set up a table for 20, but they accommodated us as guests continued to arrive for dinner with the soon-to-be bride and groom. I think our number was up to 32 people! This was a big deal because this restaurant does not take reservations. They served appetizers and offered a couple choices for dinner in order to accommodate our last-minute, large group. They always served us with a smile and we were never left thirsty. This was only one example of how the staff at Azul Fives catered to our every need.
Our wedding ceremony and reception were almost flawless. They communicated professionally and made sure to keep everyone on schedule.The wedding staff set up all decorations beautifully and used their creativity to make our sweetheart table and cake table look amazing. I cannot say enough good things about our stay at Azul Fives! I will send more pictures once we get them from the photographers but I thought I would give you an update since we are back and settled in. Thank you again for all of your hard work and dedication!
Samantha & Manny April 2018
You honestly made our dreams come true and helped us not only every step of the way but made sure we did get a wedding!
For that you forever will have a special place in our hearts!
I absolutely MISS our daily chats but that will happen again!
Thank you for everything we are so excited to look into all of the options and many future trips with you!!
Thank you! We had a great time! Holy Blue Water!!!
Pictures don't do it justice as you know... the process in which you handled for us couldn't have gone smoother... you did a great job... all transfers and transportation were on point!
The Bora Bora excursion was amazing.... yes we did get to swim with the black fin sharks as well as he took us out to swim with a lemon shark in the deeper waters.... crazy but amazing! The bungalow was beautiful and the hotel staff were great. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!
We did find an amazing restaurant... BEST... FOOD... EVER in Moorea... Le Sunset... everyone we talked to concurred.
We will for sure be returning to Bora Bora in winter to swim with the whales!!!!
Thank you, thank you!
Amazing Over Water Bungalows in Mexico!
Thank you for the "Welcome Home"! Would love to still be there, we had a fabulous time at Palafitos. The service out there was far superior, we ate every meal in the restaurant with the glass bottom floor, and enjoyed our over water bungalow for breakfast. The staff is outstanding, and for our last dinner Miguel planned a special meal for us with steak and lobster, rose petals on the table, the works! We are definitely looking forward to returning as soon as we can, Valentine's Day? Thank you so much for planning this for us.
I will reach out to you after the first of the year, thanks again-
A DREAM Destination Wedding!!
I wanted to send you a message just expressing how thankful I am to you and everything you did for me to make my dream wedding happen. I honestly can’t even explain how amazing the resort was. I have never ever had a vacation where I felt like royalty from start to finish. The customer service and grounds were seriously impeccable. From every driver, maintenance, concierge and restaurant employee I just felt so welcomed and comfortable every second of every day. The food was unbelievable- every single meal and it was amazing that our whole group was able to eat so many great meals all together.
The wedding itself could not have gone better, the wedding team was so helpful and literally did every single thing I requested and was worried about.
I don’t have a SINGLE complaint about the entire week, it was just so perfect from the second we got into the car at the Cancun airport until the moment we got dropped off. It was just so magical and I can’t imagine ever loving a resort as much as I did this one and we already are excited and wanting to book our anniversary trip back.
Thank you so much for everything you did, I have been raving about you to everyone and you’re probably going to be hearing from a lot of my brides wanting to book travel with you soon. I will also send more photos and video once she gets them all back to me!
Thank you for the best week of my life<3
Everything was Amazing!
We had an amazing time. You were spot-on with the recommendation to stay in the Beach Bungalow in Moorea, as the "over water" were mostly half in the water and half still on land. The resort itself was excellent! Thank goodness for "Get Ready" rooms as well. Arriving at 8AM maximized our first day there, but we also could not check-in until 3PM. I was ready for a quick nap once we finally got into it (i don't sleep on planes.....LOL).
Once we got settled, we really enjoyed everything the property had to offer. I thought the sea turtle rescue area was awesome, and the dolphins on site were very cool! We also did an ATV excursion, which took us through pineapple fields, through little rivers, to mountain peaks with fantastic views and to a school where we sampled local jams made from the fruit by the students. It was great!
And, Bora Bora was breathtaking from the minute we arrived.....that BLUE water!! We were so happy we upgraded to the premium over water bungalow at the end of the dock. It was awesome to just dive right off of the balcony into the water everyday, and we were happy to have the deeper water at the end of the pier too. The ones closer to the beach were of course in much shallower waters. We had a phenomenal view of the mountain at all times from the room balcony. The food was great, and the Le Meridien resort had everything we wanted! We kayaked, paddle boarded and generally just enjoyed all of the water toys they had. We did do an excursion where we jet-skied around the entire island, stopped once to make coconut milk. Then we had lunch at Bloody Mary's. After that was the best in my opinion, where we snorkeled on the ocean side of the reef with black-tip reef sharks and lemon sharks....and tons of amazing fish to see. We then went in the shallow side of the reef with more reef sharks and rays everywhere and then the last stop was the "coral gardens. All of it was so amazingly beautiful! I am jealous your agency gets to go every year!!
Thanks again for everything, as we had a truly amazing experience!
Best trip ever!
Cabo was AMAZING!! All of the girls had so much fun and our hotel was pretty incredible, great customer service, great food and a great beach! The trip was so much more then we could of ever imagined. You were amazing to work with and helped put a the best trip for my sisters bachelorette party for 10 ...girls!!!
Having absolutely no idea where to begin, as I have never traveled to Mexico, you were able to provide excellent guidance on where to stay, what to do, and recommended some great restaurants. I am beyond satisfied with your level of attentiveness and care for our group. Every question I had, you answered promptly and all accommodations were arranged for us were spectacular, with continued great customer service on all fronts. Our trip would not have been even close to the same trip with out her help and knowledge. THANK YOU!!!!!
Megan and the girls
Cabo October 2017
It is our absolute pleasure and the very least we could do! You honestly made our dreams come true and helped us not only every step of the way but made sure we did get a wedding! For that you forever will have a special place in our hearts!
Thank you for everything we are so excited to look into all of the options and many future trips with you!!
Thank you, Lana
Thank you so much for the care package! That was so thoughtful of you and made us just that more excited for the big day and honeymoon. YOU ARE THE BEST!!!
We are looking forward to bora bora and thanks to you it should be the best vacation ever. You will absolutely be referenced to all of our soon to be married friends :)
The trip was amazing! We didn't end up doing any excursions, golf, or spa. Just relaxed! It was absolutely perfect. Your recommendation were just perfect. We are so happy with the choice. Thank you so much!
Our DREAM Wedding
First off, LANA ROCKS!!! I am an event planner by trade and get the opportunity to work with many travel agents, hotel sales people and their operations teams for events. I must say this was one of the best experiences I have ever had for a personal event but even seeing how she worked with us, from a professional standpoint I was extremely impressed. We were on the brink of not having a wedding overall due to costs and Lana literally swooped in to save the day. We had our DREAM wedding thanks to her!!! She was with us every step of the way-- inclusive of communication to the onsite team, even though operations is way out of her scope of services. All of our guests had the best experience working with Lana, even those really high maintenance ones! Our dreams came true, thanks to Quintess Travels, owner and travel agent Lana Sharr. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you
Michelle and Gonzalo Mosquera
We are here at the Hyatt Regency and having the BEST time! We will be doing the bike ride tomorrow and really enjoyed the Cave Bar, here's picture. We have been swimming and hanging out at the beach it's great. Thank you for everyting you have done for us.
The honeymoon was AMAZING!... We thoroughly enjoyed Karisma Palacitos, and didn't want to leave. Interesting story... first?... the waterproof phone case worked GREAT (thank you for our gift) !... While jet skiing though, the latch to the lanyard for the phone actually BROKE! ... We thought for sure the phone was gone, especially when we snorkled for about 20 minutes and couldn't find it! But... as we started back,... we luckily saw it floating!(WHEW!!)
Anyways... thanks again for your help! Have a great weekend!
Best Vacation celebrating my birthday and travelling solo! It's so beautiful and amazing; thank you so much for organizing everything!!
Great service with competitive pricing
I have worked with Lana to plan several family trips (cruise) and couples only trips to Mexico and she is very responsive to all my requests and changes. Every trip has been flawless and her pricing was competitive or beat the major online sites while giving me the service of a professional. No waiting on hold to some corporate phone center if I need to change or add anything. She also has great knowledge of the cruise lines and Mexican resorts and has great recommendations based on what kind of ambiance we are looking for and our budget.
Thanks, Dana S
Much Needed R&R
Reviewer Location: Phoenix, Arizona
I don't even know where to begin, Lana is one of the most thoughtful, light-hearted and kind people I've met. She cares so much about making sure all your travel needs are met and went above and beyond on fairly short notice to help us book a relaxing all-inclusive get away. I would HIGHLY recommend Lana and plan to use her again in the future!
Most amazing vacation ever!
Lana was terrific in helping plan our family vacation to Italy this summer! She listened to every detail about what we were hoping to get out of our vacation and planned everything accordingly. It turned out to be the best vacation we've ever taken...everything went smoothly and we got to see and do everything we wanted to. Planning such a big trip to a country you've never been to before can be very stressful. But Lana took the stress out of the equation so we could just enjoy the experience!
It really was a perfect trip and I know it was eye-opening for our girls to experience a different culture and to see and appreciate all of the history!
Thanks again for all you did to make this trip so great!
You have provided exemplary service; we'd be sure to go back to you for future travel needs within the scope of services you provide.
MOST AMAZING HONEYMOON
Oh my goodness Lana we had the most AMAZING time!!! We loved the motu picnic and swimming with sharks- so fun!
But we also loved just relaxing and swimming in that incredible water and snorkeling!
Thank you SO much again!
Best trip ever!!!
Lana is absolutely amazing. She helped us plan an amazing honeymoon vacation to bora bora within our smaller budget and it was unreal. Best vacation we have ever been on. She is always quick to respond and share her experiences and what to do there. We will definitely be working with her in the future.
Thanks to Lana!!!!!
Dream Vacation 5 Star!
Lana was absolutely terrific. Her recommendations were spot on. She responded to all of our questions/concerns really quickly. She took all of our wishes and made them a reality. Thank you so much!
Best Honeymoon Ever to Tahiti!
Lana Sharr is AMAZING!! She took care of our Tahiti trip and we didn't have a worry in the world! Our honeymoon was spectacular and she took the time to listen to what was important to us and her knowledge and personal experience really gave us our trip of a lifetime, we are so thankful that we didn't try to arrange the Tahiti vacation ourselves. The special gifts in our over the water bungalow were such a nice surprise ! I will be using Lana Sharr for all my future travels. In fact our next trip will be to Rivera Maya and she can't wait to share all her great experiences she's had there with us.
Best First Cruise
First cruise. Friends had booked Holland America to Panama Canal. Lana helped us join them booking several weeks later. She was able to get our cabins next to each other, sit and the same table for dinner, and advised about excursions along the way. Our friends were impressed with knowledge she gave us as they booked their own and have gone on many cruises. BEST last day was on HA owned Bahama island, Half Moon Cay. Large sandy beach, crystal blue water, etc. She advised we book a Cabana for four for the day. Three sided cabin with table, chairs, lounge chairs, water toys, AC (not needed), and staff from ship brought in two huge trays of fruit, dips, chips and drinks and ice just for us. It was near facilities but did not feel like it and only a few steps from the water. It was the ICING on the trip!
Incredible Trip to South Africa
Lana is amazing to work with. She is very knowledgeable and makes every transaction seamless. We just tell her where we want to go and she takes care of the rest. Working with Lana has made travel to what we used to think were impossible destinations happen, and happen in style. This trip was to South Africa and included two cities, a 3 day safari at a private reserve and cage diving with great whites. Every detail was taken care of and we did not want for anything. Not only will we continue to use her services, but we are having her set up trips for our family members as well. We cannot say enough good things about her service!
Dear Lana, Thanks for the Holland America tote!...
Waiting to depart. Have already played pickleball and ping pong with friends and lunch was great! Thank you for arranging everything we love the ship!!
Lana, I just feel blessed I met you at the wedding expo in Phoenix. Not only are you a wonderful travel agent, but you truly care about the people you're helping, and the communication wss wonderful. I never felt I needed to worry about a thing, and that's so nice while planning a wedding on top of a honeymoon! Our cruise was sooo much fun! It was my husband and my first experience cruising, and all of Lanas advise and tips really helped us in giving us a general idea on what to do, things to see, etc. The excursions we experienced was literally a dream come true. Thank you so much for being so kind, helpful, professional, yet personable. We will be in touch with you for all our future travels, as will refer you to family and friends!! Thank you!!! Kayla and Justin
Thank you for our strawberries!! You're too sweet!
We are lovin life right now!! Best cruise ever!
Beyond our imagination!
Lana is nothing short of a God-send. Referred through a friend, I planned a family Hawaii Vacation to include my parents. My father is ill and not very mobile. We wanted to make family memories for the summer. Lana held my hand through planning a family friendly travel to include my 2 year old daughter. Our acommedations were phenominal to say the least. She went above and beyond to place us in a breathtaking ocean view room that had the easiest of access to the beach. The hotel was even partnered with a wheelchair rental company for travel away from the resort. It was so family friendly and truly aided in my parents having a trip of a lifetime within our familial limitations. Lana anticipated all our needs and made recommendations on things I never would have thought of. Thank you Lana for helping us create memories we will cherish forever!
Best travel agent ever!
Part of our flight was cancelled for an upcoming Africa trip, and Lana had it resolved & had us on a better flight before we even knew there was an issue. The Itinerary was already unbelievable, and somehow it got even better!
Thank you, Kim G!!
She made it so easy and really helped us to pick the best option for us (LGBT)!
We met Lana at the wedding expo and she was very friendly and helpful to us. She planned our entire honeymoon and we had the best time! Sent us updates on weather and full itinerary. We had no troubles finding our rides and checking into our hotel. I will definitely use Lana for our future trips!
The luau was great! Food was out of this world! Ready to go to Pearl Harbor. Having an awesome time and can't wait for our cruise. Thank you for everything!!
Bucket list trip to Italy!
The trip you planned for us turned out to be spectacular. All three hotels were charming!
The highlight of the the trip was the Chianti tour... memories for a life time!...
Barry and Joan R
I very much dislike doing research and was getting a bit overwhelmed with all the possibilities for a honeymoon. I had several travel agents contact me, but Lana was by far the most responsive and helpful. I quickly dropped the rest and worked with her to set up an excellent honeymoon at an all-inclusive in the Dominican Republic (to my wife's surprise). Short of holding our hands in the airport, she took care of just about everything. We even got upgraded rooms and "VIP access". Everything went off without a hitch.
Thank you, Reese
Lana helped us plan our honeymoon and we would use her services again in a heartbeat! She spent a lot of time going over the details with us and the excursions. We felt like we got so much undivided attention from her and really appreciated that. She was such a delight to work with and gave us so much great advice about traveling overseas. Everything was well planned and ran smoothly. We had an issue with a flight and she was able to get us on a new flight and reassure us. She really cared about us and making sure we had a great experience. We didn't think we would be able to afford a trip to Italy and do so much while there, but she made it possible. Thank you for helping us with a fairytale honeymoon!

Amazing Kaua'i Trip!
A long overdue review for my trip to Kauai...Was ABSOLUTELY amazing!!!!!!! We really had the time of our lives. Loved the Hyatt!! Went to the North Shore and stopped by the St. Regis..mind blown lol should have stayed a couple nights....next time :) we visited Gillens beach which is the beach at the end of the trail from the Hyatt...deserted and beautiful!!! Went to Poipu, and up North went to Hanalei Bay, Haena and Ke'e....amazing!! Also went all the way west to Polihale beach...We hiked down to Queens bath in Princeville too..that was an adventure! Napali snorkel...helicopter ride...need to start saving to go back!!!! Wow...thank u SO much Lana!!!
Lana made planning our dream wedding not only easy but fun. Her enthusiasm for travel and adventure shone through. She made the entire process easy, from helping us set up our Honeyfund account to making our final plans. We originally wanted to go dive with the whale sharks in Belize, and Lana did all the research to find out the best resorts and time to go. Before we finalize booking we found out we were pregnant and wanted to avoid areas with the zika virus. Lana jumped on the change of plans and found us the perfect resort on Morea! We told her our budget and she had a new options for us to choose from. All we had to do was choose our itinerary and show up. Every step along the way was thought out and covered and the Sofitel resort was exceeded our dreams. We were in heaven, and are already planning on going back for our 5 year anniversary. The passion and personal touches that Lana added helped make this our dream honeymoon!
Responsive, Helpful, and Dedicated!
Lana was extremely helpful and knowledgeable during our search and booking experience. She found us exactly what we were looking for. Even during our vacation when we need assistance we never felt abandoned. She answered all our questions, emails, and phone calls about our stay not only prior to booking, but even during our resort stay. I would highly recommend using Lana. I plan to book several more vacations with her in the future.
Thx, Anthony C
The best family trip to Costa Rica!
The trip was amazing. The RIU Guanacaste was wonderful. About 45 min drive from the Liberia airport. We had a beautiful ocean view from our balcony. And thank you for the goodies! It was so nice to be on the beach but also have a great pool for the kids. We really enjoyed the buffets at every meal. The boys loved all you can eat and drink though!! The shows every night were sometimes cheesy but entertaining.
The best part was our adventure at
www.vandarahotsprings.com. We did horseback riding to the ziplines to the water slide to the volcanic mud to the hot springs with the swim up bar and massages!! Amazing day.
The next adventure was a catamaran ride from our beach to a bay for snorkeling. The weather was a little dreary but we had the boat to ourselves for snorkeling, paddle boarding and kayaking. Plus the captain made us our best meal of the trip!
Another day we drove to Tamarindo beach for surf lessons and then to Flamingo Beach for dinner and the sunset right on the beach. Our driver also took us to see monkeys and feed the iguanas.
We were so impressed with how nice everyone was and how safe we felt. We totally wanted to stay and live their simple life. As they say " Pura Vida."
A Family Vacation for 10 Made Easy with Lana!
I was referred to Lana from a friend and could not have been more impressed with her responsiveness (she responds to every email within the hour!), professionalism and keeping me updated every step of the way. She helped arrange a family trip for 10 to Mexico and we didn't have to lift a finger. She thought of everything and even spoke with the GM of the resort prior to our arrival to ensure they listed us as VIPs. I can't wait to use Lana for my next trip (and for many more years to come!).
JP - 7/16
Our vacation to Hawaii was WONDERFUl!! Everything was phenomenal. All the recommends of airport guidance to super shuttle to arrivals was fabulous. Made traveling with dad and Sophia sooo much easier. There are no words for the hotel and I can't thank you enough for the rainbow tower upgrade. We ate many meals on the balcony with my parents overlooking the ocean. The locating was great as it cut down on walking for my dad. They rented umbrella chairs at the beach and my dad was able to join us! Truly saved his energy for putting some and events. We truly did not want to leave. We hope we can do something again next year. We definitely have the travel bug!! Hope all is well with you and your family! I will be filling out the review shortly for sure. Have a wonderful summer!!!
Thank you for recommending Tauck. What a great operation…..they “executed” consistently in every facet of their plan. The room, the food, all exceeded our expectations…..The ships staff…wow…they knew what we drank, where we preferred to sit, did it seamlessly. Nothing is perfect; but they come pretty darn close.
As advertised, Prague is very col, a great vibe…..i wish I were 30 yrs younger. Passau was a pleasant surprise as well as the wine tasting in the Wasau region. Vienna was so impressive. ….architectural eye candy wherever you looked……We’re already looking at which one we might like next. Your suggestion and instincts are great…. Tx. SB
We had a wonderful time! That is one of the most beautiful places on earth..even though we had many cloudy days! Air Tahiti was actually fabulous, so we have no idea what those reviews were about. The over water bungalow was amazing -- so cool to snorkel right off your balcony. Thank you for all of the arrangements -- the transports to and from each point were fabulous too. It was definitely a trip we will never forget and we will be calling you for our next big vacation.
I have known Lana for many years but had never used her services to plan a vacation. I read so many reviews raving about her services so I decided to mix business with friendship and boy, am I glad I did. Planning a trip can be stressful – especially when it’s for a group…no matter the size. I knew where I wanted to stay but coordinating everything – well that takes work. Lana knew this was my birthday getaway with my girlfriends and she took extra care in making sure the resort was aware. I’ve stayed at Riu Palace before so I was familiar with their level of services but they really did seem to go above and beyond to make sure we felt special. With all the concerns with Zika virus, Lana sent along a care package to me for my group so that we would feel ready and safe going to the Dominican. She knew my main concern was that we were not on a ground floor and had hoped we’d have some type of view. When we arrived, the staff right away confirmed we were on a higher floor and we had a lovely view of a courtyard which was so tranquil. We had lots of natural light and the room was clean and ready for us upon arrival. Upon our return, she made sure to follow up to ensure that we had a good experience. The extra care and follow through that we received from Lana made the experience that much better. I cannot wait to put her “design a dream vacation” skills to work because I know that’s where she truly shines. For anyone looking to have an amazing experience from start to finish, please contact Lana!
Lana Sharr will far exceed your expectations. We have never used a travel agent before and now I will never use anyone else. She was fantastic, and at the last minute was able to book our hotel at a discounted rate. She responded quickly to our questions, and when issues arose (the Airport cancelled our flight) she was there to assist us with a smooth transition. We could not be happier with our experience!
We don't know how Lana Sharr was able to make a MIRACLE happen, but she did! With our limited (civilian) experience in traveling abroad, my fiancé (now wife) and I thought it'd be a good idea to travel to GREECE, in April, for our honeymoon. Before I begin, let me advise that my wife and I are customer service "snobs"!
Lana took the time to put an AMAZING honeymoon package together that was magnificent! The caveat to the trip came about when Lana advised on limited access to certain hotels, restaurants and cites due to this being outside of the tourism season for GREECE. The only reason my wife and I weren't let down when we received this news was due to the following information attached to her email. Staying within our budget, Lana put together a "French Polynesian Islands", OVER WATER BUNGALOW, honeymoon package that TOOK OUR BREATH AWAY!!! Our itinerary included step-by-step instructions with flight itineraries, transportation to/from the airports and two different resorts. All we had to do was show up! A month before our travel, we received a package from Lana that had all kind of travel essentials... selfie-stick, water resistant cell phone case, luggage tags with our pictures on them, mosquito repelling bracelets, airplane kit w/ pillow/earplugs/sleep mask, and a few other items...WOW!!!
After talking to various couples staying at the same resort, we found out how much more they paid for the same package with other travel agents. One couple paid $3,000 more than what we paid for the same trip and they didn't get the OVER WATER BUNGALOW as we did. My wife and I will always go to Lana for her services because she provides PASSION, EXPERTISE, OPTIONS and GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE that lead to "Once in a Lifetime" experiences.
Sincrely, The Faussette's
The trip was AWESOME! We had a blast and it was a great place to relax. The water bungalow was PERFECT! Dom loves snorkeling so we really took advantage of being on the water. And waking up to that view was breathtaking.
We did the stingray & shark excursion which was so cool! That was our favorite! We also took one of the 4x4 tours and saw some great views and saw the rest of the island.
All in all in was fantastic. You allowed us to thoroughly enjoy it by taking care of all the transportation etc. We are already talking about our next trip : ) we are thinking Maldives next year! Lol
Sofia and Dom
We had an amazing time!!! Thank you so much for everything :) We look forward to working with you again!!
Lacey and Michael Sullivan
I can't thank you enough! You have made this so easy while giving us a great deal! The Faussette family loves to travel so you've got a family of customers for life
We loved our honeymoon to Sandals Ochi!! It was absolutely amazing, everything we could have asked for. The resort was beautiful. We loved each and every one of our excursions. We talked to a lot of people that went to the blue hole while they were out there. It sounded like a lot of fun. We talked about doing it, but just ran out of time.
Our first night we got settled in, did some exploring and watched the show. They had a steel Drum band.
The next day we had our excursion at mystic mountain, the sky ride, bobsled and zipline. We really loved this one. There was a pool, waterslide, and hummingbird garden that were included. Everything was fun, but the zipline was my favorite. I would definitely recommend this for someone looking for a fun adventure. We also checked out the rabbit hole this night. It was our favorite bar to go to. I think we went almost every night lol. We made friends with one of the bartenders, Kamare, he was amazing! They had fun music, good drinks, it was a cool vibe.
Monday we ended up renting a private cabana at the hillside pool. It came with a private butler and massage. It was really nice to just relax and enjoy our day. I talked to one of the maintenance guys can and he climbed up a tree, cut down some coconuts for us, and filled them with rum lol. It was very unique.
Tuesday, we had our catamaran cruise to Dunns river. This was absolutely packed, but SO much fun!! This was by far our favorite thing on the trip, and would highly recommend it. We did not know that, and maybe I didn't read all about it, but we got to snorkeling on our way to Dunns. Then we got to Dunns and hiked up the river. After that, there was booze and food on the boat. We got to eat, and party the whole time. We sat in the front of the boat, and rode against the waves all the way back. We got soaking wet. Once we docked back at the resort it was a full on party inside the boat. Anyone that doesn't like to drink and party would not enjoy this, lol but we do and loved it. So much fun!! We needed a nap after haha.
Wednesday morning we found out they do a mini snorkeling excursion to a ship wreck a few miles from the resort. It was $25 per person and totally worth it. We took a glass bottom boat out there and got to snorkel for like 45 minutes over the ship wreck and reef. When we got back from this we did all the water sports, water trike, paddle board, sail boat, ect. We loved the sail boat, one of the water sports guys took us out just the two of it. It was really fun.
Thursday, we had our dolphin cove excursion. That was also super fun. In addition to the dolphin swim we got to swim with sting rays and some some big sharks. They had parrots, love birds, a snake, and a lizard we got to hold. I would also recommend this one. It was a little pricey, and we bought the pictures which were also expensive. But when else do you get to swim with dolphins!! That night we also had the big New Year's Eve party at the pool. Lots of fun!
Friday, we went golfing. Well, I went golfing and Kaylin came to drive the cart. I'm a big golfer so I really enjoyed that. The rest of the day we finished up some souvenir shopping, and went back to some of our favorite spots. We also had our beach dinner that night. It was absolutely amazing and was well worth the money. Such a romantic experience, we really enjoyed it as well.
Saturday we had our long travel day back home. We were so glad we did club mobay. Departure lounge was 100% better than the arrival, but having the help when we got off the plane was very nice in an unfamiliar place. Leaving we had a few delays so it was great to have the lounge to hang out in. Have some food and drinks. Also we were able to monitor our flight from the lounge. Well worth the money and I am so glad you talked me into it.
I think we did either the beach or the pool pretty much every day. There were so many different locations, we tried all of them. The water was perfect, so clear and cool. The sun wasn't too hot. I think it was around 75 all day every day. Couldn't have asked for much more. We loved how there were so many little spots to explore and just hang out in. Even the last day we found a little corner of the resort that we hadn't seen the previous day's.
As far as the food, we ended up eating at every restaurant but one. A few of the nights we ate a double dinner lol. Kelly's dockside was really cool, right on the water. The Italian place, valentino's was really good. We ate at the jerk shack I think 6 times haha. We loved the jerk chicken. The manor had carribean food, we had a good meal there. Also, the best thing I ate was a lamb shank at le gourmand, the French place.
Again, we could not have been happier. It was such an amazing trip and cannot thank you enough for your time and help. I have attached some of our favorite photos for you to look at. I think we have over 1,600 total lol. But it should give a high level view of our wonderful trip. I hope this info helps, and please let me know if you have any other questions. Coming back to reality was not easy, and we are ready to go back!!
We could not have asked for a more wonderful experience at the Resort!! Of course, like you said, every wedding has a story and ours certainly has quite a few, lol!!! But, it makes it that much more fun to look back on already!! I know that everyone had such an enjoyable time and a lot of people plan to visit again in 2016!!
We can not THANK YOU enough for all that you did to help us make our dreams come true!! You totally have a difficult job, that's for sure!! I know we could not have gotten everyone together without your help and been able to pull off our beautiful destination wedding. Thanks for always being there for us and providing so much support and knowledge.
Thank you, thank you, thank you. Thank you so much for how you took care of Erin and I. Your service and insights provided us with a perfect honeymoon. Thanks to your service, adjustments were made that allowed us to enjoy our time in Punta Cana.
I also want to thank you for the recent card and gift certificate. When it comes time for our next vacation, we will make sure to reach out to you.
Thanks again for all that you did.
Thanks for everything!

We are so excited we finally booked our honeymoon! The owner Lana helped us so much as we were all over the place - didn't know where we wanted to go or our budget! Lana helped us get upgraded and stay well within our budget. Needless to say we are more then satisfied and can not wait for our vacation to begin. We have already recommended friends to quintess travels! Lana is definitely one of a kind in her line of business!

Quintess travels is fantastic! Lana was so fun to work with when planning our trip. She found us a great deal in an amazing location! She even called to check in our reservation the day before we left. Lana supplied us with lots of fun ideas to do while we were there as well! It wouldn't have been the same trip without her! Thank you Lana!
