Peter, thank you so much for planning our amazingly romantic honeymoon at Sandals Antigua. The resort was beautiful with so many different amenities to experience. We can’t even count how many times we walked the resort just to listen to the birds and look at all the beautiful gardens. We loved the beach! We snorkeled, sailed, floated in the warm waters, and just relaxed in the sun. The staff was just as wonderful as Peter told us they would be. No one ever passed without greeting us with a smile or making sure that we were enjoying ourselves. Thank you, Peter for planning our honeymoon and taking care of every detail for us.
We definitely recommend Premium Resorts to anyone planning a honeymoon, wedding, or any vacation!
Baby Boomers in Barbados
7/5/18 Peter and Nancy of Premium Resorts were so attentive and helpful helping us plan and book our group trip to Sandals Royal Barbados. They helped us book our rooms before the resort was even open and it was the best thing we ever did! We scored a butler swim up suite at a sweet price and could not believe the beauty and luxurious amenities this resort provided. Sandals hosted a private group dinner for us, complete with appetizers, salad, entree, dessert, and incredible cocktails. We met the General Manager, Ferry Zievinger, Hotel Manager, Patrick Drake, and Group Sales Manager, Dayna Gilbert. They made it clear that they appreciated our choice of resort and went out of their way to ensure that every moment was as perfect as it could have been. Great food, great friends, endless smiles from staff, perfect accommodations, and non-stop fun. I think the fun part is obvious when you see how many ladies fit into a tranquility tub! We can not wait to plan a trip to another island!
Miranda and Travis Barbados Honeymoon
Nancy and Peter were FANTASTIC to work with!! My husband and I booked our honeymoon to Sandals Barbados through Nancy and she took such good care of us. When bad weather the night before we were supposed to leave was threatening our flights, Nancy assured me that they would "move heaven and earth" to get us to our honeymoon on time. What a promise!! We ended up not having to change our flights and got to our resort as scheduled. She also provided so many pictures, details, and tips before we left to ensure we knew our stuff before we got there. Additionally, she told us to call/text her during our stay is anything was amiss (it wasn't). When we were still looking to book our honeymoon prior to our wedding, I found Premium Resorts of Cook Travel online via their outstanding reviews. Even though we live in a different state, Nancy worked with us through phone calls and emails. Overall, just such great customer service from Nancy and we could not have been more pleased. WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
Sandals Halcyon Beach
Will and Jana, 4/23/18-4/29/18
Will and I booked our Honeymoon to St. Lucia's Halcyon Resort by Sandals. Peter Blum assisted us in the planning process and he made it so easy. Peter helped us pick the Sandals Resort that fit the type of Honeymoon we were looking for and he did an AMAZING job! Peter talked with us several times on the phone before the trip to make sure we were comfortable with every last detail. Will and I loved the fact that the entire Honeymoon was all-inclusive and paid for up-front. The only thing we paid for out of pocket were souvenirs and excursions. The Halcyon Resort is the best out resort out of the 3 resorts on the island in my opinion. My husband and I made time to go visit The Grand and La Toc and they were nice, but they were too large for us. If you are looking for a more relaxing, low key, intimate vacation I would recommend going visiting Sandals Halcyon, St. Lucia. At Sandals Halcyon you will get to enjoy beautiful flora and fauna. The beauty and simplicity of the resort aids you in the relaxing process. All the staff at Sandals Halcyon were friendly and personable. As Will and I walked around the resort staff members would greet us by our first names. Staff really made us feel conformable and welcomed to their country. Sandals Resorts takes great care of their guest and my husband and I are already planning our anniversary trip for 2019! Thank You Premium Resorts, Peter, and Sandals for making our travel experience so memorable!

Nicole & Jon Royal Caribbean Wedding
Peter Blum made our honeymoon a huge success. He answered all of our questions and helped coordinate everything. I would recommend him to anybody getting married because organizing a wedding and honeymoon can be very stressful, Peter is such an expert on all the honeymoon spots. He will cater your personality and likes to a specific resort so you will be happy and not have to worry about planning yourself. I have recommended him to many of my friends that are in the process of getting married and already using him for a second time for my parents 40th wedding anniversary. If I had to rate him out of 10 stars, he would get 11 from us. He went above and beyond to make sure we were 100% happy in our trip. Thanks again Peter for all your hard work and dedication to making us happy. We can’t wait to take our next trip soon!
Sandals Montego Bay was a dream come true
Sandals Montego Bay, Jamaica was all I had dreamed of and more. The people were phenomenal and I have several of them as contacts on social media now! We still talk even after returning home several weeks ago. I never thought I would love another place as much as I loved St. Lucia last summer but Jamaica is just as wonderful. We tried to relax this trip so we didn't do as many excursions but we did the Catamaran Cruise to Margaritaville which was a party! Of course, I had to go down the slide and check out all the local shops nearby. We also went snorkeling on this excursion and saw a beautiful reef and much tropical fish. We also went on the Luminous Lagoon excursion which was pretty incredible. Jamaica is one of the only places in the world that this occurs year round but the phosphorus micro-organisms in the water glow when agitated. So basically we were taken out to this big body of brackish water and told to jump off the boat! I was thinking this excursion was a bad idea until we jumped in and saw how beautiful the water was glowing all over and around us. It was something I had never seen before and was simply wonderful! We also went on a glass bottom boat tour. It was amazing to see how many tropical fish and coral reefs were right out in front of our resort. However, if you have motion sickness (like I do) this trip may not be for you. I did, however, enjoy the boat ride facing out from the boat instead of looking through the glass. I was surprised at the amount of included activities the resort offered! We even rented masks and snorkels to look around the swimming area. Helpful Hints for other guests: Definitely get a butler suite on the second floor the first floor doesn't have a view like the second and people walk right past your door.
Thank you for all your help with setting up our recent trip! We really enjoyed ourselves! Anthony and Jessica Hall
Destination Negril - Heath and Lissa
We couldn't have asked for a better destination wedding and honeymoon than what we experienced at Sandals Negril. The resort was beautiful, the service was exceptional and the wedding staff so generously helpful. It ended up storming and raining the entire afternoon of our wedding so the beach-style wedding we had planned was out of the question but the staff did a fabulous job of keeping the wedding party calm as they seamlessly transitioned everything to beautiful indoor settings. Our Minister helped continue the stress-free vibe by keeping the entire group laughing. Negril is known for their sunsets but as you can see in our pictures the sunset that resulted after the stormy afternoon was unbelievably stunning! We received so many compliments from our guests about how wonderful our rehearsal dinner, wedding ceremony and reception all were. The music kept the entire group on their feet until we were danced out! The food served for our rehearsal dinner, wedding reception and honeymoon dinner were all delicious, as was every meal enjoyed throughout our 8 day stay.
Premium Resorts of Cook Travel was awesome. They made planning my destination wedding at Sandals Whitehouse completely stress-free. They handled everything and even hand delivered our trip itinerary and tickets all the way to Nashville. Our travel agent, Sally, created a custom destination wedding and honeymoon for us based on our desires and it turned out amazing. She even got us a cheaper rate than when we booked it ourselves since Premium Resorts is a preferred Sandals Resorts Travel Agency. Our wedding was beautiful and it was all thanks to wonderful people at Premium Resorts of Cook Travel.
Never a Problem at Sandals Ochi Beach Resort
Upon arrival at Sandals Grand Riviera in Ocho Rios Jamacia, we were taken into the Butler Lounge, this is where “No Problem” started. We were asked if we would like something to drink. We asked for a 12 year Appleton - No Problem - Our check in was quick - being a bit early the rooms weren’t ready - however the the Butler Team arrived and escorted us to lunch. From this point on our Butler Team - Sheriffa & Curtis took care of us white gloves and all. This Sandals vacation was one of the best Sandals experiences we have had over the past 7 years. Sheriffa & Curtis catered to our every need - from the coolers of Red Stripe & lunch at the cabanas & beach - sushi in the room each night for a late night snack - bringing a change of clothes from the room down to the beach after dinner - arrangements for golf , spa, dinner & and a special private trip to Negril - many times we thought they were reading our minds, having events scheduled or items in our room before we asked. We traveled with 3 other couples that have never been to a Sandals resort - none-the-less they were overwhelmed with the service and attention provided. Our group of 4 couples all had Butler Service - with the help of Sally we were given a Butler Villa Poolside Suite for the entire group. We all stayed in the same building - hung out at the same pool and shared the all the great times. The icing on the cake had to be the last night our - the Butler Team & Hotel Manager put together a birthday party for 2 people in our group - At our Villa around the pool - we had a catered buffet - DJ - bartender & a beautiful table set for our group, the Butler Team & Hotel Manager. It was a great way to end an incredible vacation - we were able to spend time with both Butlers & Hotel Manager. Before we loaded the bus back to the airport our Butler & the Hotel Manager were at the lobby to say goodbye and see us on the bus.
The day after we arrived home our Butler Curtis called us at home to make sure everything went well on our flights home. Nice Touch
Once again - Thank you Sally for your help working with the resort to make this such an incredible vacation. All of our requests we spoke to you about during the planning of the trip - Happened!! -- Cheers

South Coast Destination Wedding with Military Discount
Elisa would be on break from her college studies and Adam would be on leave. Forty (40) friends and family would attend, including Elisa's grandparents. Adam was eligible for Sandals Military discount so 10% was off their room category. They chose Sandals Whitehouse/South Coast for their wedding and then a "hop" over to Sandals Emerald Bay in the Bahamas for their honeymoon. Perfect, so everything was arranged. Weeks before their wedding, Adam received word that his leave would be cut short because of a new assignment. No problem! All of the staff at Premium Resorts of Cook Travel are trained as Sandals Destination Wedding Specialists. Sally and her staff jumped into action and with their expert understanding of Sandals guidelines, made all the necessary changes with no additionally costs incurred. Their wedding was gorgeous and the honeymoon...well that was a private affair!
Antigua Honeymoon ~ Buy the Photos
Wow. We had a blast at Sandals Grande Antigua. We just loved it and everything was perfection. Our honeymoon suite was wonderful and spacious and we loved having the private pool and hot tub. Our Butlers brought us breakfast every morning and set up lounge chairs by the pool. Our butlers drew us a bubble bath, stocked our fridge and made sure we had everything. We really appreciated that they reserved us the best and shadiest spots at the beach and pool.

Incredible 30th anniversary & 50th birthday at Sandals Grande St Lucian
Peter, What an incredible time Sandals Grande St. Lucien. We experienced as much as we could in a week, all the restaurants, all the watersports, a cabana on the beach for the birthday girl, sunset cruises, Zipline (Blast!), and Cindy helped with a fire dance. Barbara of Sandals Grand St Lucian Colombian Emeralds helped me surprise Cindy on both our 30th anniversary at Toscanini's as well as her 50th birthday at Gordon's on the Pier. She now has some new blue sapphire jewelry. Concierge service made my life so simple. I placed single phone calls and "No pressure No problem" my wishes and needs were always addressed promptly. Loved the people. They even taught me some Patwah.

Anniversary Celebration in South Coast
Sandals Whitehouse offers something for everyone. If you did not come to Jamaica simply for relaxation, sunning on the beach, lounging around the designer pools, or being pampered at the spa, then you may have come for the water sports. Randy and I took advantage of numerous water sports in an effort to work off all the calories we were consuming. We had our choice from a smorgasbord of activities such as snorkeling, kayaking, wind-surfing, hobicat sailing, water skiing, stand up paddle boarding, and scuba diving.

First Sandals experience but not the last!
Thank you once more for helping facilitate this trip to Sandals Whitehouse. My wife and I had a wonderful experience. This was our first time vacationing with Sandals Resorts, and it will not be our last. Sandals Whitehouse blended the natural beauty of Jamaica with European architectural design. The landscaping and facilities onsite were pristine. Our room location was perfectly located with an amazing view of the sunset each evening. The dining was fantastic. Options ranging from Asian to Italian to Mediterranean to local cuisine allowed us to dine for whatever mood we were in. Our personal favorite spot was Neptune's.

Beaches Negril turned out to be one of our most memorible family vacation in 10 years
Nanna Sally and I love traveling with our family Jennifer, Billy and our Grandchildren Bella and Gabbi. We try to travel together at least one week per year since 2001. I have learned that photos are as important to the vacation as the vacation it self. This year we vacationed at Beaches Negril and we decided to book a Butler room category. Our Butler Carla was amazing and provided many surprises for us all including for the twins which included the bubble bath with roses. During the end of the vacaion, Bella turned to Nanna Sally and told her, "Nanna I want to grow up to be a Butler because Butlers make people feel good." Beaches Family vacations are SPECTACULAR. ps I have lots of photos to prove it.
