All-Inclusive, Luxury Resort Travel Agent & Expert

Sandals South Coast in Jamaica!
Sandals South Coast in Jamaica!

I will never forget my first visit to an All-Inclusive resort. It was paradise. The sand was white, the water was crystal blue, the staff members were always there to say hello with a smile, and I never had to lift a finger! This trip to Sandals South Coast Resort in Jamaica inspired me to receive my certification in booking Sandals and Beaches All-Inclusive Resorts for my clients. In addition to receiving this certification, I receive annual training in Sandals and Beaches All-Inclusive resorts to make sure I am up-to-date with the most recent news, renovations, upgrades, and more! I have also attended on-site training in Jamaica.

What I enjoy most about these resorts is the freedom. I love that once you step foot on the island, everything is taken care of for you! With that freedom, these vacations can be tailored specifically to you and your vacation wishes! Whether that means a quiet day at the spa, participating in water activities, lounging by the pool, enjoying a candlelight dinner watching the sunset, visiting the Caribbean's only speakeasy bar, or all of the above, we will make sure your vacation destination is right for you!

All-Inclusive resorts are great for honeymoons, couples getaways or retreats, girls weekends, bachelor parties, wellness retreats, destination weddings, vowel renewals and more! When staying at Beaches resorts, the kids can tag along too! 

I also book through Palace Resorts so I can send my clients to the beautiful All-Inclusive Resorts in Mexico! We also partner with Pleasant Pro Academy, which means I can book your vacation destination anywhere in the world!

Disneyland fun!

Reviewed By Emily - Alexandria, VA | Traveled to Disneyland ~ California ~ USA
While living out on the West Coast, Maggie helped plan 3 trips to Disneyland for me. Each one surpassed all of my expectations and was special in their own way. If not for Maggie's expertise, these trips would not have been nearly as fun or care-free. She offers so many recommendations and tailors each trip to what works best for you and your party. I can't wait for Maggie to help plan my next trip!
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Maggie Ballantyne responded:
Thanks for always being so supportive and loyal. Disneyland is my favorite park and I am glad I got to plan trips there for you and with you!

Trained, Traveled, Trusted

Reviewed By LA - Clemson, SC | Traveled to Walt Disney World ~ Florida ~ USA
Maggie knows her stuff! She is available day and night to answer any questions I might have about travel. When I am planning my vacation she takes as much input from you as you want to give and has excellent suggestions for things you don’t know about. She created an entire custom itinerary for me for a Universal trip that took thought and knowledge that I couldn’t have gotten from a computer. The best part is- her services come at no cost to you! What could be better? I will never travel without her help as my travel agent.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Maggie Ballantyne responded:
Thank you for being the world's most loyal client! I love planning your trips and love even more seeing how much fun you have! Your willingness to try new things adds even more fun to the planning experience!

Couldn't recommend Maggie enough

Reviewed By olivia - Lexington, Kentucky | Traveled to Walt Disney World ~ Florida ~ USA
Maggie has booked all things Disney for me - cruise, park tickets, vacation packages. She literally does it all, and she makes my life sooooo much easier. All I have to do is decide what I want, and Maggie does the rest. And when I'm not so sure what exactly I want, she always has helpful suggestions! I can't believe I ever booked vacations without her, and I will definitely not be planning another without her.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Maggie Ballantyne responded:
Thank you so much!! I love working with you and planning your trips!

Best mother/daughter trip!

Reviewed By Ms. B - Walkersville, MD | Traveled to Kissimmee ~ Florida ~ USA
Maggie was very accommodating and took all of my personal requests into consideration. I felt like she really understood how I wanted to approach my days in the parks and put a lot of time into planning an itinerary that would work for my personal requests. She planned the perfect trip!
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Maggie Ballantyne responded:
Everyone likes to experience Disney World in a different way! I loved helping you figure out a way that would work the best for you! My favorite part of your itinerary was the Animation Experience at Animal Kingdom, dining with the princesses at Cinderella's Royal Table, and the Ferrytale Sparkling Dessert Cruise!

Magical Bachelorette!

Reviewed By McCall - Pittsburgh, PA | Traveled to Orlando ~ Florida ~ USA
Maggie was so easy to work with! I contacted her last minute to help me finalize plans for a girls weekend and she coordinated with all the ladies going on the trip and made everything happen! She even sent me a package of goodies right before we left. She was a perfect person to ask questions and help finalize our plans.

A race for the ages!

Reviewed By Catherine Horner - Tulsa, OK | Traveled to Orlando ~ Florida ~ USA
She made things so easy and was very quick to respond to all of my questions. It is my first Disney half marathon, so I wanted to make sure I get registered, and Maggie got me my bib no problem! She is very professional and I recommend her to anyone needing assistance.

Maggie Was The Relief We Needed In A Pandemic!

Reviewed By Emily - Rockville, MD | Traveled to Negril ~ Jamaica ~ Caribbean
Maggie was a HUGE help in planning our trip to Sandals Negril! She made the booking process easy and stress-free. Unfortunately, due to COVID19, we were forced to cancel our May vacation. Not only did Maggie move our trip for us, she even got our room upgraded to ocean view for no additional cost! I don’t know how she did it but I’m certainly glad she did - we are so looking forward to our trip this October! She kept us informed the whole time so we never had to stress. Thank you Maggie!
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Maggie Ballantyne responded:
I am sorry your trip had to be moved, but I am so glad you are going to travel again soon! Thank you for trusting me with your vacation! I can't wait to hear all about it!
