Great communication and updates even though we booked it more then a year out. Very efficient. We would ABSOLUTELY use them again. Thanks to excellent advice, we chose a private island in the Seychelles. Denis island proved to be everything we wanted for our family holiday and so much more. The ultimate in barefoot luxury.
I didn’t wear shoes once during our stay ... need I say more!
