St. Lucia - Barnes Honeymoon

My husband and I tarveled to Sugar Beach resort in St. Lucia for our honeymoon. We were assisted by Teresa of Honeymoon Islands with the planning for the trip. We had already had several resorts that we were interested in when I contact her. I found Teresa to be very knowledgeable about various resorts and pleasant to work with. She arranged all of our flight, hotel transferes, and reservations and everything went smoothly. All of the information was mailed to me in a nice travel folder to keep me organized.

Sugar Beach was fantastic. The property grounds and beach are beautiful. The staff was very attentive. The food was great and we really enjoyed our excursions (some of which were recommended by the hotel). We especially enjoyed going to the Sulphur Springs followed by a spa treatment. Additionally, our villa was awesome. Very private and spacious. All in all our 8 days in St. Lucia were paradise. We look forward to working with Honeymoon Islands on our next vacation.

Paris - Kendall Birthday Celebration

Teresa Belcher was an incredible travel agent. My husband gave me a trip of a lifetime to Paris for my 50th birthday in April. He wanted it first class and used Teresa. Wow! She exceeded every expectation with her choices of hotels. I have travelled all over the world – Europe, Africa, South America, Asia and Australia. I have always arranged and planned my own trips. I normally travelled for as long as I could afford so I never went the expensive route. My husband on the other hand had never travelled to Europe or anywhere except the Bahamas. He got a first class introduction to France on this trip. This trip to Paris and Lyon was the exquisite one! I would have never found the unique boutique hotels that Teresa recommended. I probably would have never considered Le Maurice. The great aspect was that she had connections and we were upgraded and got lots of perks which I personally loved. We drank a lot of bottles of champagne in our rooms. She also made suggestions for night time activities. Having a few things pre-booked was great. Everything was fantastic and we hope to arrange such a trip again. We want to hit another European country. I know Teresa will deliver. If you want an upscale over the top travel agent, this is the one to go to.

Thanks Teresa for arranging such a memorable 50th birthday gift. We will treasure the memories for a lifetime.

Riviera Maya - Salas Honeymoon

Teresa was great to work with! She is extremely knowledgeable about travel destinations and offered helpful, upfront advice. She listened to our requests and arranged all of our travel - very stress-free process! She was also fantastic about making changes after the original destination (Anguilla) we picked decided to close for the off season- we were booked at another resort in no time (which I think actually turned out for the best because we were able to do a lot more exciting things at our final pick- Maroma Beach, Mexico!)

Riviera Maya and Belize - Shafton Honeymoon

While I organize our photos from Mexico and Belize, I'd like to provide my future brides and newlyweds with a little honeymoon planning tip... GET HELP! Unless you have super human powers, it is incredibly difficult to plan a wedding and a 2-week long vacation at the same time. Especially if your future spouse isn't a planner and you've been dreaming about your honeymoon since your very first plane ride.

So I reached out to Teresa of Honeymoon Islands. And I'm so glad I did. My initial research got us to the Riviera Maya. But Teresa got us to our accommodations. She gave us a list of special spots according to our personalities and travel desires. For instance, she knew that first thing after the wedding, we'd love The Viceroy in Playa Del Carmen due to its luxurious vibe and romantic seclusion. She was right. She knew we'd enjoy Blancaneaux Lodge and Turtle Inn, the two Coppola resorts in Belize because of their boutique feel and rustic charm. She was right.

Before we set off, she made us a detailed personalized itinerary with all of our confirmation numbers, contact information, and maps. This handy guide was a life saver. And with her connections in the industry, we got some perks! Special honeymoon treatment we wouldn't have gotten otherwise: rose petals and candles, a room upgrade, and complimentary massages.

But I have to say, the best part about working with her was the assurance that she had my back. Some billing problems came up a week before the wedding. She stepped in and took care of it. I sent her a frantic email from Tulum with worries about the Belize-to-Mexico transfer company not confirming our pick-up. She immediately called them from the States and within a few hours, they emailed me with an apology and and ended up arriving 15 minutes early.

Thank you again, Teresa, for all your advice and guidance. With your help, our honeymoon was just as we had dreamed.
