What Our Clients Say...
"There was very limited availability on the (inaugural) cruise we wanted to book leaving from our home town port (which is a first and probably a one off). General booking opened at 9am the next day and Debbie was on the phone then and not only got us on the cruise but also the suite that was top of our preferred list . Can't praise her enough for all of her work on bookings (and COVID-related cancellations ) over recent years."
- Mr Pacitti, travelling to the Canaries in 2021 and 2022, and cruising twice throughout 2022
"The quality of service received from Jackie and other colleagues in the office is superb. They are always very helpful, going out of their way to make sure that everything is finalised to our requirements. We also appreciate the work that goes on to make sure that the venues are of the highest standard and quality.
- Mr Fellingham, travelling to Barbados in October 2021, and cruising three times throughout 2022 and 2023
"Elegant Resorts are my preferred agents. I have booked two separate holidays with them over the last fortnight. Jayne has been her usual superb self, and in her absence, Liz and Jackie have been excellent too!
- Mr Wehrle, travelling to the Dominican Republic and France (skiing) in 2022
"Debra has been our travel consultant for many years, during which we have travelled the world. Due to the current situation, we have decided to staycation more in 2022 and, as always, Debra has been efficient in helping us choose and book some amazing trips here in the UK."
- Mr Fellingham, travelling to Yorkshire, Edinburgh and Santorini in 2022
"During this time of difficulty dealing with the pandemic, it was so helpful that Elegant Resorts were able to switch the holiday (that I had already paid for) to one in a different country another a year later."
- Trusted Client, travelled to Greece in June 2021
"Great service from Lyndsey and the team in the UK, as well as excellent five-star treatment from Antonie and the team in Barbados. Nothing was too much trouble."
- Mr French, travelled to Barbados in January 2021
"I just feel we have been looked after in quite a personal way. With their competitors, who we have used, you don't quite get the same impression that they actually care. And when things go wrong - e.g. COVID - it makes you consider cancelling the whole trip... they just try their best to do what you want."
- Mr Esam, travelled to Kenya in November 2020
"I just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone involved in making our recent trip to Portugal happen. In the strangest of times, it would have been so easy for you to just cancel our holiday and rebook for next year, but you were all incredibly helpful when we made the decision to still travel. You were always honest with your advice and opinions but ultimately let us make our own decision which you then supported fully."
- Mrs Vaughan, travelled to Portugal in August 2020
