Sunrise at Haleakala, Maui

I first fell in love with Hawaii on my honeymoon, more than 28 years ago. The highlight of our trip to Maui was watching the sunrise from the summit of Haleakala crater at an elevation of 10,023 ft.!  It was so cold at that elevation but once the sun started to rise above the ...

Customer Testimonials

Honeymoon in Moorea and Bora Bora

We used a Google search to find a travel agent to help us with our honeymoon planning. Once we started telling Cathy about what we wanted, she was on it. She was super helpful in her knowledge of French Polynesia. She recommended resorts that were perfect for us. To say Cathy was helpful is an understatement. She went above and beyond in helping us with the planning of our honeymoon. We set a budget and Cathy was extremely helpful in making us able to hit our goal. Her suggestions about the rooms to stay in at each resort were perfect and we wouldn’t have changed a thing. She was so fast with her responses! Sometimes we would email late at night, or on the weekend, when we had a question, and not expect a response until at least the next day, and we were super excited when she got back to us in minutes in most cases! Cathy gave us a list of tips and helped pick some excursions, and fit it all in our budget. If anyone needs a travel agent, Cathy Jackson gets our highest recommendation!

Trip to Jamaica

Cathy is an absolute pleasure to deal with and takes great lengths to keep me happy! I will definitely never use an online site to book a trip ever again as the service she provides is incomparable! Cathy planned two vacations for me and I will never use an online site again. The service is a complete pleasure and to use a professional like Cathy made my vacation planning such a great experience. I had a small issue when I went on vacation and with her in my corner, I had nothing to worry about!!! Thank you all for a great service that I will continue to use in the future!

Amazing Anniversary Trip to Antigua

I am extremely satisfied with the service and dedication that Cathy at Sunsational Vacations has provided. I have had the wonderful experience of dealing with Cathy several times now and have always had a great experience. Cathy provided me with recommendations, referrals, reviews and personal opinions as to places to visit that met my needs and desires. She took care of everything from start to finish including making dinner reservations and spa appointments prior to my arrival. She was very attentive to my reservation, kept my updated and informed all the way up to departure. I have and will continue to recommend Cathy.

Our honeymoon in Tahiti was perfect!

My husband and I wanted to go to Bora Bora on our honeymoon, but we were afraid it might have been out of our budget. We contacted Cathy at Sunsational Vacations and she suggested we split up the trip, going to Moorea first (3 nights) and then Bora Bora (4 nights). In Moorea, she recommended getting a garden pool bungalow to save money. She explained why it's better to have an overwater bungalow in Bora Bora. We splurged on that and it was AMAZING! We appreciated seeing two islands and comparing the two. We were glad we got to go to our 1st choice honeymoon destination without breaking the bank (it wasn’t cheap, but we did save a lot based on Cathy’s recommendations). Both hotels were great, everyone was nice and catered to us like we were royalty. Thank you, Cathy for all your recommendations. Our honeymoon was perfect; better than we could have ever imagined!

The Best Honeymoon

Reviewed By Kristen - Jackson, NJ | Traveled to St. Lucia ~ Caribbean
Cathy was an excellent agent. She took care of all of the arrangements for my honeymoon from flights and helicopter rides to everything at the resort in St. Lucia. She was so easy to contact and assisted in anything and everything we wanted or needed. The best part is that Cathy had visited the Sandals Grande St. Lucia so she was able to provide us with all the ins and outs of the resort, activities, and restaurants. It was so nice to go on my honeymoon and not have to worry about a thing, just some relaxation! Thank you Cathy!

Travel expert

Reviewed By Steve - ridgefield park nj | Traveled to
I planned this trip to Punta Cana and was skeptical at first using a travel agent from the internet but Cathy put my fears to rest after speaking with her. She really know's her stuff. She is very knowledgeable about the places she recommends and many times she has been to the resort itself so she has first hand experience which is priceless. No stone is left unturned. It's the little things that really add up and make a difference. Such as having private transfers waiting for you at the airport when you land bypassing the shuttle buses that stop at every resort which delays you getting to your resort. Also, giving us tips to speed up the arrival process after you land bypassing a lot of lines. I will definitely be using Sunsational vacations for my next trip!

First time to the island & can't wait to go back!!

Reviewed By Kdsilvestri - Sussex, NJ | Traveled to St. Maarten ~ St. Martin ~ Caribbean
Planned my first trip to the Caribbean and my agent Cathy could not have made the entire process any more seamless!! From finding the right Villa to stay in to arranging airline and car reservations, she made the process so easy. Cathy was always available to answer all of my questions when needed and she helped me be as prepared for the trip as possible. After staying in the Villa she booked for me I don't think I would want to stay anywhere else again. I had the best trip of my life and I cannot wait to book my next vacation with her! You know you are in good hands when you book with Sunsational Vacations!

Reviewed By John - North Brunswick, NJ | Traveled to
Throughout the planning stage for our trip to El Dorado Royale, I sometimes wondered if Cathy ever slept. This is because she would respond to our questions seemingly 24/7. This is the kind of service Cathy provides to her clients, and it is the kind of service that can only come from loving what she does and a desire to help people. We were a large traveling group and Cathy was the glue that held us all together and made sure that everybody submitted what was needed on time and in proper order. I can't thank her enough and look forward to the next time we can take advantage of her expertise in putting together a memorable vacation package.

Cathy is a fantastic travel agent! On my most recent vacation, I had an issue with my flight. On a Saturday, at the worst time of the day, I called Cathy's office and she answered right away! She already knew there was a problem with the flight and got working right away to help resolve the issue that was no fault of her own. She has always been there to assist me with questions, planning, booking and anything else I need. She has taken great care of my referrals and has gone out of her way to ensure my vacations are memorable. Cathy and her agency are top-notch!!

My husband and I love to travel but are not very experienced with it. We told Cathy what we were wanting in a vacation and she recommended a Secrets resort in Punta Cana. It was amazing! And everything worked even better than we had planned! Cathy even got us upgraded to the preferred section! We have worked with other travel agents in the past and as soon as the trip got booked we were no longer a priority. It was not like that at all with Cathy. She helped with any questions we had and was always available. I would highly recommend booking your next vacation with her! We will never use another agent other than Cathy.
