Sunny Marbella

28 January 2009

In November 2008, I attended the Annual Travel Counsellors International Conference held in Marbella, Spain. Marbella is one of the finest cities on the Costa del Sol. It was the largest tourism event hosted by the Spanish Tourism Board. Travel Counsellors from 8 countries worldwide attended this awesome event, with about 1200 delegates. We travelled with Iberia Airlines from Johannesburg to Madrid and then a short flight from Madrid to Malaga. The transfer from the airport to the hotel took us about 45 minutes by coach. I stayed at the luxurious 5 Star Melia Don Pepe Hotel, which is situated on the beach front. Yes it was winter in Malaga, but waking up to a beautiful sunrise across the ocean every morning was a spectacular view, that’s why the Spanish rave about their 325 days of sunshine a year! Malaga is definitely a golfer’s paradise with over 60 golf courses to choose from, they even have night games. There are loads of activities and excursions that Malaga has to offer for the young and old from; amusement fun parks, flamenco dancing, rock climbing, visits to Bull Rings, wine tasting, Paella cooking and the famous Picasso Museum is just a few to mention. I thoroughly enjoyed the Paella Cooking lessons and of course making our own Sangria. Puerto Banus is about a 5 minute taxi ride where you will find famous designer boutiques, restaurants and where the rich and famous hang out. You will find marinas with the most luxurious yachts. I definitely recommend Costa Del Sol to any beach lover and I will be returning soon.

Durban

18 February 2009

When you have toddlers one tends to think that a vacation or holiday would be a nightmare but in March 2007 we decided to do a bit of local travel and visited Durban. With Durban only being a 2 hour flight away from Cape Town, it wasn’t that bad travelling with the kids. We stayed at the Balmoral Hotel on Marine Drive in Durban, which is located on the beachfront. The Hotel is child friendly we had a family room which had a king size bed and a double sleeper couch. There are loads of activities to do for the whole family, on the boardwalk there is a fun park for the kids with rides and amusement centre. If you don’t want to swim in the ocean, there are swimming pools on the beachfront. Mini Town is a miniature city replicating Durban and it is also situated on the beachfront. Take a rickshaw ride along the beachfront, they are known for their magnificent head-dresses with beads and other decorations. This fleet of tuk-tuk type three-wheelers is a great way to see the “Golden Mile”, 6 kilometres of Durban’s finest beachfront. Durban is also famous for hosting national surfing events. We visited the well known U’Shaka Village which is the largest marine theme park and has loads of adventure for the whole family at Sea World, Water slides of Wet ‘n Wild, Boutiques and Restaurants. We visited Flag Animal Farm close to Balito (north coast) and the kids had a wonderful time, feeding chickens, ducks, rabbits and pony rides. They also have a tea garden serving light meals. It's pram and wheelchair friendly. If you would like to see the cultural side to Durban, there are loads of Museums, cultural centres and traditional Zulu villages to visit where you can also see the famous Zulu dancers in action. The port of Durban is the 9th largest in the world and has also become very popular with stopovers for Cruise Liners. One can also take a Sunset Cruise in the Harbour. I will definitely recommend Durban as a mini break-away fun holiday for the whole family to enjoy.

Just a quick thank you for arranging such an amazing Safari for us. It was truly an unforgettable experience. Nottens is a jewel in Kruger. No it’s not one of the super expensive 5 Star lodges but it’s very very close. The room was amazing as was the food and the service. If you ever need me to give a recommendation to a future guest feel free. Your planning and professional approach was second to none. Again I’d be more than happy to recommend you. Thanks again Nigel & Som

We had the absolute pleasure of working with Prelene for recent travel (in March and April), and I must say, her service and dedication left us utterly impressed! I rate her a perfect 10/10 for outstanding service and will gladly refer any other business to her. Prelene is more than just a travel agent; she's a true gem in the industry. From the moment I reached out for guidance on my bookings, she went above and beyond to ensure that every detail was taken care of. Her attention to detail and thorough understanding of my preferences made the entire process a breeze. I had to travel for work, and my husband and I decided to add to this itinerary and book a holiday. Prelene liaised with me for the business part and my husband for the holiday part of our travel. What truly sets Prelene apart is her incredible commitment to her clients. She provided expert guidance on the best options and took the time to tailor our itinerary to suit our interests and budget. Her personalized approach made us feel like a valued client, and we can't thank her enough for that. In a world where exceptional customer service is often hard to come by, Prelene shines as a true professional who genuinely cares about her clients.

My Travel Counsellor Prelene Abrahams is extremely helpful, she has a lot of patience with me, and she gives very good advice if needed. She will always go the extra mile, in which I am sure she does for everybody. I would really give a 10+ if I could. Thanks and regards Leverne Carstens

Sent by Rafiek Mammon

I have worked with Prelene Abrahams on a number of bookings for the past two to three years now. She is never too busy to help and she is certainly never too busy to take your call - something I am very appreciative of. Changes to tickets or accommodation plans do not annoy her as I have found with some other travel agents - this is rare. Getting assistance from your travel agent is what one really wants, and this is what one gets from her...no job is too big or too small to tackle. It is such a pleasure to work with a professional person who is sharp and who understands the changing circumstances of our travelling lives.
