He made me feel very confident and secure while booking my trip.

Thank you for your comments. So happy to know that you enjoyed your first all-inclusive and thank you for booking with us. Hope to book you again soon!

AWESOME TRIP! OLE!
Thanks so much Mary! Glad you had a great trip to England and Spain. Keep us in mind for your next big trip!
Outstanding vacations using Gene.
Thank-you Costa Rica We Love You !
After an initial consult with Gene to determine our needs, he presented 3 different resort options all with different pros & cons. We met again and reviewed each resort together before landing on Dreams Las Mereas.
Turned out to be best trip ever !!! The resort was the best we have ever stayed at and the entire trip was everything we hoped for in Costa Rica.
Upon our return Gene requested a post mortem over a coffee to better understand our experience and ensure we were completely satisfied with the trip overall. Great follow-up ! We will definitely be planning our next trip with Gene at Be Smart Travel !
Thank you so much for sharing your experience! So glad we could help find the perfect vacation/anniversary trip for you both. I'm truly humbled. Looking forward to topping this with your next trip.
Thank you, our pleasure to help of course!
Might sound cliche, but this was the best trip eve
Personal contact throughout the whole booking/ flight confirmation process.
Followed up on my return to find out about my vacation.
Exceeded my expectations as a travel agent.
Amy concerns escalated were addressed in a timely manner.
I felt that all I had to do was pack my luggage and leave everything else in Gene's capable hands. I wasn't disappointed!!
Thank you! It's always fun helping my clients find the perfect vacation. And I love hearing all about it after.
He planned our trip exactly what we wanted & very knowledgeable.
Appreciate the feedback. So glad that you had a great vacation!
Beaches Negril update
We all agreed that Beaches Negril was our best Caribbean vacation ever. The beach is clean, warm, clear turquoise, white soft sand. It's not deep along the surf and you can walk for miles. The food was great at the buffet. The a la cart restaurants did not require a reservation and they were all good. The snack bars are available all day. All options are delicious & convenient. The room was clean and up to date. The staff was excellent and take time to get to know you. Aiden’s (9 yr old): “it was awesome!!” Aiden played in the water park and basketball court. He also enjoyed all activities that were offered e.g. snorkelling, banana boat, boat rides, beach games, nightly themes. His favourite part was meeting and playing wiith all the other kids. Tim’s highlights were the ocean, the food, the gym and the beach. I lived on the beach the whole week. I would recommend this resort for families. I could just relax and not have to worry about entertaining them.
