Secrets Cap Cana was Amazing

Reviewed By Taylor M - Plymouth, MN | Traveled to Punta Cana ~ Dominican Republic ~ Caribbean
We couldn't have asked for a better All-Inclusive! We traveled to Dominican Republic to celebrate a friends honeymoon. Anna Swartwood recommended we stay at Secrets Cap Cana located in Punta Cana and she nailed it! She lined up our airfare, lodging, and transportation to and from the resort. The adults only all-inclusive offered all the amenities you could want; daily activities, over-sized pools, swim up bars, great food, nightly music/shows, white sandy beaches, and elegant rooms. We upgraded to a swim out room and it was totally worth it! You share a pool with roughly 6 other rooms, but found we were usually the only ones in it (still plenty of room if all 6 rooms were using it.) Depending on which room you choose, you could spend all day in your swim out pool, however, we chose to spend the day at the larger pools with other guests and wind down just before dinner at our swim out. This was our first time staying at a Secrets and we would definitely go back. The staff and grounds w

Everything we wanted it to be!!

Reviewed By Michelle U - St Michael, MN | Traveled to Riviera Maya ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
Our trip to Mexico was everything we wanted!! It started off with easy transportation to our resort that was pre-booked with Lomas Transportation. Lomas staff were friendly and helpful. We even ended up booking some excursions through them at our resort when we met with the day after arrival to schedule our return to the airport.

Riu Palace Riviera Maya was an absolutely amazing all inclusive resort! The staff were super friendly and entertaining. All the other people staying at the resort were friendly. The food and drinks were delicious and had a wide variety. The room we had was like a standard hotel room but was clean and everything we needed since we did not spend much time in the room. The beach and pool area had plenty of lounge chairs available for everyone.

I cannot wait to do this relaxing trip again!!

Amazing!! We booked a 5 day, 4 night trip to Mexico through Anna Swartwood of Travel Leaders. We went down for a friends wedding (whose group booked through another travel agent), and found Anna was able to offer a better price and unmatched customer service. Her and the team were responsive to all questions we had and were proactive in getting us all travel documents to travel out of the country before we asked.

A Fabulous Time in Germany

Reviewed By Tim F - Albertville, MN | Traveled to Germany ~ Europe
We had a fabulous time in Germany! We just loved it there! Our favorite stops were our visits to Neuschwanstein Castle, Burg Eltz, Cologne Cathedral, Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp, and a day trip we added to the fortress in Salzburg. Our hotel in Berlin was our favorite and the breakfast was huge and delicious! They must have given us a handicap accessible room, because everything was so spacious, a lot different than the first two hotels. We felt like the car rental went smoothly, and the amount of time we allotted for each place was perfect. So, everything worked out, with just a little extra hassle. Thanks so much for finding us nice places to stay in prime locations and for finding us a good price for the overall package. We would definitely recommend this trip to others!

The trip was awesome!!

Lots of sun and ocean time. We stayed at Barcelo Punta Cana. The grounds were immaculate and the pools were great. The food was OK. Lots of choices but not my favorite. The Japanese(Kyoto) restaurant was the best. Great food! We did the Pirates of the Caribbean excursion. This excursion was good for kids. We snorkeled, had a stingray encounter and swam with sharks.

Hi Anna--

I wanted to thank you so very much for all your help getting our Alaska adventure worked out. Everything went off without a hitch! Thank you also for the lovely steak dinner in the Crown Grill. It was a nice surprise! Here's a quick rundown of our adventures:

Michelle, Gerrene and I had a blast! It was so nice to be away from everything (mostly school) even if it was just a week of fantasy :). We loved our mini suite on the Grand Princess. Our steward, Rey, took good care of us. The room was just big enough for the three of us. We each took over our own area. It was just the right amount of activity so that Michelle did not get too tired out. We cruised the first two days so we got familiar with the ship and took advantage of some of the fun presentations onboard. We ate in the dining room for dinner each evening. That was a real treat and we liked having the flexibility of our dining time. We had lots of fresh seafood and steak.

Food was good and the kids program was very nice - our kids loved it and it was nice to have a place for them to go so that we could have some time to ourselves :) One small annoyance was that everytime we walked through the lobby, we were approached by someone trying to get us to try something (a restaurant, or do an excursion or something). we learned to just say no thanks and keep walking, but it was everytime we walked through.

Reviewed By Mike M - Albertville | Traveled to Caribbean Sea ~ At Sea ~ At Sea
Our trip was fabulous. The weather was fantastic and we got to see some fabulous places, including Amber Cove DR, St Thomas/St John, San Juan PR and Grand Turk. The water was amazing in Grand Turk while the architecture was beautiful in San Juan!

Anna was very helpful in planning our trip, always open for questions. She made the experience stress free and fun. Thanks Anna for making this trip awesome!! We will definitely work with Anna again on our next trip.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends

Fantastic Family trip to Cancun

Reviewed By Lana J - Anoka, MN | Traveled to Cancun ~ Quintana Roo ~ Mexico
Hi Anna,
I cannot tell you what a fantastic trip we had in Cancun. We are ready to go back.....tomorrow!
A couple questions:
We LOVED the all inclusive...if we went to Playa next Winter, what is a reasonable hotel for us and would it be similar in price? Just curious! It is so overwhelming to look at all the hotels, etc. online.

Thanks,
Lana

Alaskan Cruise

Hi Anna-- I wanted to thank you so very much for all your help getting our Alaska adventure worked out. Everything went off without a hitch! Thank you also for the lovely steak dinner. We entered the Inside Passage on Monday and our first stop was Ketchikan. We took a float plane and flew over the Misty Fjords. We landed on a lake by a waterfall and all got out on the floats. It was great fun.. Tuesday was our day in Juneau. We went whale watching in the morning ,and spent time at Mendenhall Glacier in the afternoon. Whale watching was so much fun. We saw two momma Humpbacks and their babies. One momma was so close to our boat that you could hear her blow hole opening and closing. We also saw lots and lots of eagles, sea lions, and seals. On the way back into the bay we could see the Mendenhall Glacier--a river of ice. All in all, it was the best adventure ever! Thanks again for everything! I hope to work with you again in the future.
