      This was one of best group trips ever. The resort was nice with a great staff. The restaurants were very accommodating. It was an absolutely great group of women. All of the transportation to /from airport and excursions ran smoothly. Thank you, LaRae and Michael, I can’t wait to do it all again.

      When I tell you this was the best trip I been on ever!! HANDSDOWN!! From the pickup from the airport to all the events that were planned out. It was a bunch of wonder ladies on this trip and we all had great connection…Larae is the best and Micheal also I can’t wait to go on another trip with them next year

      This trip had so much potential for greatness. Unfortunately for me the agent completely dropped the ball and showed me her indifference while doing so. From the start of me booking I reached out directly to her to ask if it was possible (as I was booking a month out). I was sent a link direct from the agent with the statement the group booking rate is no longer available this is what’s available to me. Fine, everyone gets the longer you wait the more you pay. The link very explicit states pricing, what’s included, reiterates what is not included… including no refunds/transfers. The day of departure to Jamaica she texts me I must pay a extra $300 for excisions. Yes, those excursions all listed in the included in this price items. After sending her the screenshot of what I purchased and stating my confusion as it clearly says all that was included she doesn’t respond back. Nothing at all… upon arrival I messaged her if she was able to meet apart from all the other guest (I never want to sour others opinion unwarranted) she asked me to meet at a location then didn’t show or respond. Ok, maybe a WiFi issue somehow. I finally get a response at 4am that we’ll talk at breakfast. Shockingly breakfast comes and goes. We communicate again in passing I still need to chat. Nothing! not a moment during the trip was I even asked a cordial are you enjoying yourself. To me it appeared I was purposely being avoided. Final slight, A HOUR before my shuttle pick up to the airport she texts me a bill about the $300 with no further explanation making sure to include her fee. Mind you I do my research during all this avoidance and the hotel as well as excursions/transportation company have listed prices under what shes just quoted me AFTER THE TRIP WAS OVER. Then after I explain my disappointing, after lack of communication, after not being told about a color themed day, or being able to choose my excursions. She messages me on my flight home “hey don’t forget to pay your $300 balance”. Needless to say I was left with a lot to be desired which really is a disappointment because there were 2 other trips my gals and I planned to booking for ‘23. Back to the drawing board I guess. The response full of lies worries me more than the lapses made on my trip. What firsts did I experience?(I’m a flight attendant) Im sorry I spoke of only the business. I truly enjoyed the women I will never undervalue them. I directly messaged you my displeasure why are you surprised? If you would like to confer with me directly I maintained all of our written correspondence as well. Are you seriously telling these folks I booked through the hotel? Why would I want to meet with you then? How someone handles their mistakes shows their true honorability. Buyer beware.

      Really Mia? I am so surprised at this review. You had an Amazing time and had so many "firsts" and made so many friends. We even have so many pictures of you enjoying yourself and some are posted on our group page of you enjoying your trip. I sat next to you at lunch at the beach party and you said you were enjoying yourself and it was really nice. You booked this trip at the last moment and I informed you that I didn't have any more rooms at the group rate and it would be the market rate of the hotel. As you know market rates and supply changes daily. Your trip rate details were totally explained to you and your room was booked directly on their website. You did not book as part of the advertised group package. You booked outside of the group which was clearly explained to you and you were notified before the trip that you had to pay for the excurions and transportation. I showed you your hotel receipt and you may still also request a receipt from the resort if you like. The extras added were to your account were for airport transfers to and from Negril (90 minute ride each way), your excursions (3 total), your beach party, all transportation to the excursions and to Rick's Cafe, and DDT planning and admin fees. Our group provides everyone a chance to meet others and travel with a group of outstanding women and have an amazing time as opposed to being alone. I actually never set up an appoinment with you. I said I was in the lobby at the moment addressing an issue. With 36 women and a rigorous daily schedule I apologize that I didn't have time to meet with you but it was my intention to do so. Everyone on the trip including you told me what a great trip it was and that it was a excellent planned vacation package. The invoice was sent when I woke up at 4am settling all accounts. There are several screenshots of our conversations where I explicitly stated that your excursions and transfers weren't included. Just the room. Everyone else that booked the trip in advance as part of the group and made payments was truly satisfied. I am sorry that you came at the last minute when all that was left was market rates. If it was any misunderstanding I truly apologize. I am sorry you won't be joining us on the reunion trip. I wish you well in all your future travels.
