Tammy I am deeply grateful to you for your hard work in getting this put together to our satisfaction. I really appreciate your wonderful customer service.
Rosie, April 2015
For the past several years I have had the pleasure of dealing with Tammy on several occasions. Without fail she has gone above and beyond to insure that my requests were handled professionally, accurately and expeditiously. You are extremely fortunate to have an agent of her caliber on your staff. I look forward to many more opportunities to rely on her outstanding service.
David, April 2015
This email is to tell you of the wonderful service that I received from Ms. Cynthia. She has investigated every possibility to help us. We're going to be continuing our discussion in the morning to make sure that everything is the way it should be. Again I just want to thank you for hiring and training such a strong representative for your company. You need to know that you have a real jewel in Ms. Post. Thank you.
Tammy, just a short note to say what a wonderful job you did helping plan a cruise for my grandchildren and their children. You made it very easy and so they totally enjoyed.
Tammy, last week I was in a bit of a tizzy because of last-minute changes to my travel schedule. I had a ton of things going on between home and work and you calmly stepped in and helped me out in a big way.
You went above and beyond and absolutely secured my loyalty to Grand Getaways.
Please share this email with your supervisors and anyone else at Grand Getaways that you deem appropriate. I would like your team to know how much I greatly appreciate your efforts. You're the best!
Tammy, thanks so much for helping us arrange our flight from TYS to BOS this April. You were very accommodating and I feel that Grand Getaways is lucky to have you as an employee.
Thank you for your promptness and patience.
Sue & Dick, March 2015
Julian, just a short note to thank you for doing an awesome job in booking my three condo weeks in Florida. The venues you booked me in were awesome. Hope to contact you for my next vacation.
Thank you Dana! My family and I had a wonderful visit to Las Vegas. The hotel, Circus Circus, went above and beyond helping us with accommodations. They were able to book us another room, AFTER we arrived, that connected to our room. How lucky was that on Super Bowl weekend! We had another daughter and her husband join us, so they could attend our son's graduation.
Again,thank you so much for helping us with these reservations. Everything went very smoothly.
Tammy, I just wanted to let you know that we were refunded a little under $300 automatically, without even having to file a claim through travel insurance. I am super impressed by this, and it really makes a big difference not having to come home from vacation with "one more thing to do". I also wanted to let you know that when I called the insurance people while I was still here in CT, I was really happy to be put through to a real live human being immediately, without having to go through a dozen layers of automated responses. Obviously it would have been better if Mother Nature had cooperated, but i just wanted to let you know how much I appreciated having our recent travel disruption taken care of so easily and expediently.
A similar weather-related disruption happened to me back in 2005, for a trip that I booked for myself without using any agencies, and it took several hours of phone time spread over a number of days to get anything refunded. This experience has been so much better. We will definitely be talking to you guys about our future vacations!
Thank you so much again,
Greetings Dana! I want to thank you so much for going the extra mile and booking us at the hotel in Lakewood, Colorado right outside of Denver. We had an amazing time and it was such a great hotel. The room was great and all of the dinosaur fossils all throughout were beautiful. The breakfast every morning was great and the staff was so friendly. There was even a place called Dinosaur Ridge nearby where we took a bus tour in the mountains to see Dino track fossilized in the rocks! It was amazing! Thanks again!
Tammy, the trip was awesome! Very nice resort, great friendly people, food was good. French and Japanese were my favorites. The excursions were wonderful fun! Snorkeling tour with massage and lunch gets a 10. Horse back riding through the jungle and to the beach, a 10... beautiful!
The horses were great and the guides were very helpful and fun. We even went into a small town and made our own cigars. The Ocean Spa yoga retreat was also wonderful. That gets an 8. I wish we had more time for each session during that excursion. It felt a little rushed for a relaxing day. They should maybe add an extra hour to the package so you can spend more time at each thing. Good prices for all of them. The spa at the resort was nice to use and massages were reasonably priced and very good. Thank you for your help.
On October 1, 2014 I talked to Connie. Connie helped me immensely. She listened well and answered my questions intelligently. If she didn't know the answer she found out. I had to call her several times and she was friendly. I think when a person does a good job she should be recognized.
Barbara, October 2014
We just got home from our vacation. The Days Inn and Suites was nice. You can tell it was redone. The rooms were updated and the grounds were clean. Staff was very friendly and helpful.
Thanks again for your help with this booking.
Paul, August 2014
Tammy I just wanted to say Thank You one more time.
Kitty, August 2014
Tammy, just some feedback on the hotel. This place was awesome, both for families and adults. The first floor pool was perfect for families with younger children and the beach was right off the pool. Great beachside amenities as well, ie: drinks, chairs, umbrellas.
The 7th floor tranquility pool was for adults only.. beautiful view and very peaceful.. full bar as well. Hotel was beautiful, clean and very attentive.
Joyce, July 2014
I wanted to send a thank you to Hector's assistance related to our cruise. He provided excellent service when I canned and I really needed that. Hector was extremely helpful and polite. I can feel the water movement as I type. Neither of us have been on a cruise and we are hoping that this may be the first of many future cruises.
Thank you so very much!!!!
Cynde, July 2014
Hi Tammy. I just wanted to let you know that the Now Jade Riviera Cancun was AMAZING!! It was gorgeous, the food was excellent, and the entertainment team had something planned all the time. The room was clean and we did upgrade to an ocean-front room.
Thank you so much for your help!
Mary Beth, August 2014
A big thank you to Dana for the great service she provided. Good attitude, very professional, and good customer service.

Hi Michelle, greetings from Raul.
The reservation you made for my sister in Cancun was excellent. They were very happy to have spent their honeymoon in this hotel.
Raul, July 2014
I want to take this time to thank you for the great job you did with our airfare for our Las Vegas trip. your level of trip detail and your professional manner was so reassuring to us being 69 years old. This was so important to us. The trip was wonderful with no problems. Thank yo again for being our travel agent.
David & Sara
Once again you have outdone yourself. THANK YOU so much for making this trip happen and for LESS at that! You are to be commended for your customer service, you always go above and beyond to please. I was impressed for my Puerto Vallarta trip but even more so for this trip. I'm looking forward to being in Montego Bay for my milestone birthday.
Thank you again!
I had the privilege of speaking to one of your employees today. Although I had a bit of a wait to speak to someone it was well worth the wait! First, this was my first time calling and first impressions are often lasting. Second, I spoke to Hector who was very knowledgeable, very helpful and most of all VERY COURTEOUS! Thanks, Hector for taking time with me today and thanks for that GOOD OLD FASHIONED Customer Service!
Veronica, April 2014

I want to say Thank You, for a truly memorable and amazing experience for my weekend getaway at the Radisson Resort Celebration.
Geeta, April 2014
We just wanted to take this opportunity to thank you and the Grand Getaways "Team" for your help planning our vacation to Cape Cod. We had a wonderful experience.
The reverse park and fly from the Hilton in Minneapolis, MN was very convenient. The shuttle was prompt and our wait to and from the airport was minimal.
Our flights on Delta went smoothly. When we reached Providence, we picked up our rental car and drove to the Edgewater Beach Resort on Cape Cod. We really enjoyed our condo. It was on the second floor, Room #205, with a beautiful view of the ocean. The staff at the Edgewater (the desk clerk, the maintenance man, and the cleaning staff)
did a great job. We especially enjoyed Debbie, the desk clerk. Debbie took the time to recommend restaurants and places of interest. She was extremely helpful and we enjoyed talking with her very much.
If the weather had been a little warmer, everything would have been perfect. Thanks again for all of your help. We look forward to working with you on future vacations.
Tom & Karen, March 2014
Ronny and I wanted to thank you for your assistance. You are the greatest, and that is why we will not use anyone else at the agency. I'm looking forward to our next trip you booked for us. I'm sure it will go as smooth as all the past trips you have scheduled.
Donna, March 2014
Loved our vacation to the Smokey Mountains. Sarah and I used this chance to get married and the honeymoon was provided by you. It was an awesome experience and you set us up with GREAT accommodations. Thank you.
Joe & Sarah, March 2014
We are writing to tell you we are so pleased that you booked us in Solara Surfside. Solara Surfside is on the Atlantic shore line and is very nice. The view is wonderful. Each day I was able to go for a 4 mile walk along the shoreline with my morning coffee. Everyone who works there is very nice and helpful. I was pleasantly surprised.
We would definitely like to stay in Solara Surfside again.
Rick & Diana, March 2014
Thank you again for all your help. You should be named agent of hte year for Grand Getaways.

Significant and Special person - Aileen
I send you these lines to thank you for being so nice with me. I have no words to thank you for the time that you spend with me and your patience to explain everything regarding my trip.
It is difficult to find people that without knowing me would be so nice. God Bless you each day, you deserve many, many blessings. You are truly a person dedicated to your job, that you take your time to explain everything to us. Here I am sending you a small gift for Valentines Day(friendship day). I hope you consider me a friend from afar.
Blanca, January 2014
In the fall of 2013, my wife Betty and I contacted Tammy to help us set up the transportation for a weeks trip to Branson, Missouri. Tammy arranged the flights for 2 couples. We were a bit late in contacting Tammy and somewhat made it more difficult for her to get the best price and fewer connecting flights. Even though she had the disadvantage of short notice, Tammy was able to get us a very good price and a minimum of connecting flights. Tammy suggested that it would be a very good idea if we also had travel insurance. We did buy the trip insurance and it was an excellent idea. We had an overnight delay on the flight to Branson and another overnight delay on our trip home. Tammy helped us with our request for reimbursement from the travel insurance company. The insurance company covered all of our costs due to the delays. Tammy is my go to girl from now on. She was a wonderful person to work with and then when we arrived home and told Tammy what happened, she went the extra several miles to make sure that we worked everything out with the insurance including Tammy contacting the insurance company herself.
John & Betty, January 2014
I wanted to thank you infinitely for your support and I wanted to let you know we had a good time. It is a shame there was little time but it was a matter of our schedules. It was a very nice trip... thanks for everything.
Luisa, January 2014
The service that I received from the traveling agent that helped me, Tracey Rider was wonderful. I did not have much money and had an emergency right before the Christmas holiday where I needed to check into a hotel asap with my 4 kids. She assured me that she can help me find a hotel that met my budget plan at the earliest and fasted time. Within 30 minutes she was able to meet my request with no problem.
Thank you very much Tracey. You are a hero to me and my kids.
Ketline, December 2013
The cruise was great. You were wonderful with all the help getting started. I hope we can go through you again when we take our next cruise.
Thank you again for all your assistance.
Dave & Bobbie, December 2013
THANK YOU... Love the new logo. Just got back from a week in Daytona Beach at the Wyndham Ocean Resort on the membership... It rocks!...going to Trip Advisor after this email and spreading the word...
Toni, November 2013
I am writing in response to a request from Hector. He went above and beyond to help me with my dilemma. If it wasn't for him my dream trip would not be coming true. He is patient, understanding and kind. If I could rate my experience it would be a 20 out of 10!
Thank you again for saving the day Hector!
Sandy, November 2013
Well, we just came back from those Fun & Fab 2 days in Palm Springs and have to say - HAD A BLAST, all thanks to your fine efforts.

Barbara, August 2013
Thank you for your assistance in planning our vacation. We had a great time. Country Inn and Suites was a great place to stay.
Clean, friendly staff, close to activities and a shuttle to downtown available every hour. The breakfast that was included had a variety of items and was convenient. We did not utilize the pool but did take advantage of their large rocker sets out in front of hotel, along with other patrons. It was a nice setting.
Thank you again,
Jane, July 2013
We had a wonderful time at Daytona Beach and would like to thank you for the amazing Inn. We had an amazing room with a stunning view. Thanks for the great find!

Amy & Jeff, July 2013
I want to take this opportunity to express my appreciation for the wonderful recommendations that you gave us, in which we had an unforgettable holiday. The place that you helped us pick was certainly great, both for proximity to the airport and Disney parks, comfortable and beautiful hotel villas. Our group has no words to thank not only your services, also the tracking and delivery throughout the process.
Thanks again and a thousand blessings to you and yours!

Roy, June 2013
My wife, Jimmie and I completed our stay at Discovery Bay on Saturday. I wanted to pass on some accolades to your staff as a result of this most pleasant experience. From the first interaction at sign in, Tammy was just a great person. Pleasant, proactive, and positive in all of her efforts. A great start and intro to your program. Please let her know she is a great asset to your team.
The maintenance staff members of Michael and Larry were most proficient in attending to our requests for help with the pilot light on the fireplace. Again, prompt, pleasant, and very upbeat about their role in keeping guests happy!
We enjoyed the Olympic Peninsula for all it's native beauty, but our stay was truly enhanced by Unit Number 11 on the water's edge to come back to after a day's activities. Great staff, great facility, fabulous area makes for Happy Customers!
Richard, May 2013
Just a note to tell you about the reservations we has at Westgate Resort Smokey Mountains, Gatlinburg area. There was a slight problem with our reservation but they made it good and also upgraded our unit from a studio to a one bedroom, two bath, full kitchen, living room with gas fireplace. The Westgate Resort is just beautiful, the staff is very helpful, pleasant and happy to be there. The services are fantastic and offers an array of amenities. It is a wonderful place. It is very clean and well maintained.
Thank you so much for your great service.
Ruth, June 2013
Tracy Rider is an awesome employee. She took the time to find a decent hotel at a good location at a reasonable price. I called back three or four times because I wasn't sure about the hotel. She answered each time with a pleasant voice and a very caring attitide. She should be recognized for her kindness and determination to find us a hotel!!!
Trip was fabulous, I could't have asked for a more perfect spot. Villa del Palmar was super, great service, dinnner theatre shows lots of fun, condo imaculate! Thanks again!
Dana, thank you so much! I really appreciate all of the help you were to me. Have a great day!
The Best Western Plus Posada was a very comfortable place to stay. The staff was attentive to our needs, the room was clean and well maintained. The breakfast bar was phenomenal, offering above and beyond the normal continental breakfast. The breakfast attendant even wore a chef jacket. Given the chance we would definitely stay at the Best Western Plus Posada again.

Thank you so much for the documents confirming our travel plans. I also wanted to say that your professionalism and customer service in this transaction was "stellar" and your assistance in this process is greatly appreciated.
You have made me see the value in the benefit and service that I am paying for! Thank you for the first time a professional explaining to the importance of having the travel insurance and that it is more than just about getting your money back in case of an emergency but also if an emergency occurs during your travel the additional coverage that the valuable service provides. I will never travel without it again.
I look forward to out future communication regarding plans for our summer vacation 2013!
Karen and Darren
We were delighted with the resort - did not know it was open to the general public. It was tucked away in the hills and trees.
Charles and Charlyne

Kevin and Mary
My son arrived 10/1 and the accommodations were WONDERFUL! The staff at the Hampton Inn was great and if ever given the opportunity to stay there, my son said he's do it again! They were so friendly and the rooms were very clean. The A/C must have been "energy efficient" because it would turn off and on... so it got a bit humid/muggy in the room- fogged up the window--- but other than that, they offered a very nice (hot) breakfast buffet in the mornings! Located close to the expressway and was quiet! You did such a wonderful thing! Thank you so much.
My son said to say THANK YOU from the bottom of his heart. You made this so special for us as a family. He had a ring made for his fiance...and will be proposing to her in a week or two (whenever the ring arrives form Shanghai)! He's promised to video the proposal so I'll keep you posted.
Again, you're the best! We'll talk soon!
Ursula and Hubner

I just wanted to let you know the Moritt's Tortuga was great.
Can you tell me when I have my second week by? I loved the vacation so much I am planning to use my second week before it expires.

Our trip to Hawaii was fabulous! What a great way to celebrate my husband's 70th birthday. We absolutely loved our vacation. The hotels were outstanding and, of course, the scenery was gorgeous! We had such a great room at the Marriott on Waikiki Beach. The flights were perfectly coordinated and everything just went so smoothly. We certainly appreciate your arranging everything for us. It was a wonderful experience.
Thank you again,

We wanted to thank you for your advice and care regarding our trip, it was a unforgettable one. May god fill you with many blessings.
My trip to Ocean City, Maryland with the family was fantastic. The Tidelands Caribbean Hotel & Suites was a great hotel. It was next to everything. It was within walking distance to the beach and to the amusement park. There were lots of great restaurants within walking distance and the accommodations were also great. Thank you for all of your work to make this trip great.

We had a wonderful trip to Scotland and Ireland! Tammy did a terrific job in finding us another tour in Ireland, when the one we chose backed out! All of her arrangements; flights, cars, hotels, train tickets, etc worked perfectly. We never had a problem at any point in the trip.
Also, I have to thank her for the recommendation of Globus tours! They were absolutely fantastic and we will travel with them again in the future.
Karl and Janet

My trip to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida for my birthday was fantastic. The Bahia Mar is centrally located to the beach and great restaurants. If you are ever in Ft. Lauderdale go to the restaurant LuLu's. It has a live band and it is right across form the beach. The food was great! Thank you for all of your work to make my birthday a great trip.
Latricia and Brett

We really enjoyed our trip to Charlotte, NC 8/23 - 8/25/2012. The hotel accommodations and staff were wonderful.
Cecilia and Douglas
Regarding the assistance I received from Janice for the hotels in New Orleans. I planned on attending a conference in New Orleans during the month of July. The block of rooms secured by the conference were sold out in May. I made a call to Grand Incentives and was able to secure five rooms for a lower rate than I received for the conference attendees. I have been a member of Grand Incentives since 2008, ad I have always been pleasantly surprised with the service and the quality of rooms and inventory. Purchasing this program was a great investment.
Karen and Hinkson
Long Beach, CA
My family and I would like to sincerely thank you for your assisting us with our reservations at the Holiday Inn located in Boardman Ohio. Our stay went exceptionally will, and the hotel was great!!!

That was an awesome place, thank you for suggesting we go there. Everyone had a great time. Unfortunatly, I fractured my knee cap on June 29th and was unable to do the activities that were offered. I would love to start planing another trip!
I will be filling out the from stating how you set this up prefectly! Thanks again.
Pat and Tom
I just want to take the time to let everyone know how nice it has been to work with Jane. This lady has gone out of her way to help with our travel plans. Jane is, without a question, one of the reasons that we love Grand Getaways Vacation Club.
Thank you Jane, for all that you do.
Bill and Teresa
Again, THANKS VERY MUCH FOR ALL OF YOUR HELP! And, the "rebate" is greatly appreciated! I'll be sure to send you a copy of the motel receipt.
Please be sure to also thank your manager for permitting this "rebate" and tell her, too, we believe you are a terrific agent - one who is really caring, truly has the member's best interest in mind, is not "pushy", and has ideas and makes suggestions for just what a member desires. We look forward to doing much more business with you, Tammy!
Jack and Judy
You set us up at the Briarwood in Falmouth, MA. Nice place. The trip turned out great. We just wanted to say thank you again for your assistance.
Jim and Margie
The Occidental Grand Xcaret is one of the best resorts we have been to. I strongly suggest the upgrade to the Royal Club. It is an area of the resort where other guests (and children) are discouraged, so it's quiet, yet you have your own pool, Jacuzzi, and restaurant.
There is a tram that runs every 10 minutes to take you throughout the resort. The food was better then expected. The staff, especially at the Royal Club, was warm, friendly, and helpful. Right next door was a park. The resort was about one hour from Cancun airport.
I just wanted to say thank you for booking this flight, it was great. I just came back in on Thursday. I am so glad you arranged the connection time for over an hour, as you need it when coming back through the U.S. We were lucky, a lot of people missed their connection due to the short time they had.
My week was good and thanks again. Looking forward to booking with you in the future!
Sundarlall & Padmini
I would like you to know how much I appreciate all Coast to Coast did to make my trip wonderful. Also, how grateful I was to have great service from all the people that helped me.
Arthur & Arline
Once again our trip to Jamaica was fantastic. Thanks for the fine arrangements made by Janice, we experienced a great trip!
Janice possesses all the attributes that one wants in a travel agent. Her professionalism, sincerity, dedication, friendliness and her genuine interest makes her not only a great agent but a great friend!
John & Coreen
Columbia Cross, PA
Wanted to give you a great big thank you for our wonderful trip to Bahia Principe Punta Cana.
The resort was absolutely marvelous. We were checked in like VIP's. Originally our rooms were on the second floor and because of a note on our reservation, Iriana had them change it to the ground floor and we had adjourning rooms with the other couple. The patio was overlooking the pool. This was a great area for my husband as he did not have to walk far to the pool. We asked and received a wheelchair for our time there as the complex was so big, he would have never made it walking.
The staff was friendly and courteous and we just hated to leave on Saturday.
Love the place and would do it again in a heartbeat.
William and Maria
Just a note to say thanks for all the help you have provided us in arranging our vacation trip to the Las Palomas Resort in Puerto Penasco, Mexico.
Thanks for your time and effort on our behalf. We have repeatedly enjoyed excellent service and wonderful, fun filled experiences.
A friend, visiting us in our beautiful two bedroom suite overlooking the Sea of Cortez, asked me how I could afford such luxurious accommodations. I told him that I couldn't, but my "Cousin April" let's me use hers every now and then. (He still thanks I have the most wonderful cousin in the world.) And of course, I know I do!!
So...Cousin April, as Lee and I prepare for our departure in the morning to enjoy once more the fruit of your labors that we so much enjoy and appreciate, we wanted to say thanks again...you're the greatest!!
Your Arizona "Cousins"
Andy and Lee
We have been members for over five years and have had very good experiences with Coast to Coast. You have to do your homework on accommodations...usually use Trip Advisor before we actually book...but have had great vacations and resorts through this company!!
George and Victoria
It was everything we could have wished fore. It was most enjoyable, a lot of fun, and most important, it was RELAXING!! The agents couldn't have been more accommodating. They were wonderful. I'm glad we joined your club.
Thank you so much for taking care of our airline reservations. Your caring approach and patience was really up there. You are a real pro. by our estimation. We got everything you sent us. If anything changes, let us know.
George and Kay
How are you? Trust all is well with you and yours.
I must say I had a good time in Mexico; the hotel was all that was said to be on the internet and I was happy with my room and the staff there. Thank you for your facilitation in this.
Hope to go to Europe in October; maybe the last two weeks in the month. Any deals or suggestions to offer? I am not particular about which countries but if I HAD to choose: Spain, Italy, and Portugal. Switzerland and Germany are also options.
Will welcome any of your ideas. Thank you.
Our room was ready and very clean and the staff was delightful. We would go back anytime.
Richard and Kim
Just a note to say that we had a wonderful time and loved the place you booked for us at Cypress Pointe! Thank you so very much. Have a great week.!

Most enjoyable trip. Beautiful location, well located accommodations, four well equipped different restaurants with pleasures beyond the plate. The entire staff was polite, helpful, and efficient. Joan and Randall Pasadena, FL October 2011
We had a great stay at the Baymont Inn and Suites at Bridgeport, MI. It was clean, quiet, and the staff was extremely friendly. It's a prefect location for shopping in Saginaw and the Outlet mall at Birch Run as well as doing the shops and restaurants at Frankenmuth. Thanks Tammy for the help.
Roy and Barbara
We found our motel very easily and were pleased with the hostess and rooms.
There was a family restaurant one block away and several chain restaurants close by. Filling station 200 yards away.
Roland and Betty
Janice went out of her way, after hours, to satisfy a customer, me. She is an example of a fantastic person to speak with at a moment hen a problem arise, that will follow through until all the work is done. Janice, I thank you from the bottom of my heart and may God bless you always. Hopefully one of these days I would like to meet you. If you are ever in Houston, TX please give me a call. My house is your house. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
Janie and Tim
As stated before. Had a great trip!!! Would highly recommend both the Resort in Phuket and the Hotel in Bangkok. But without Judy - none of it would have been possible. Thanks Judy :) Can't wait to talk to you again and start planning the next trip!!!
Jesse and Kimberly
Grand Saline, TX
Had a great time at both places. Judy from Coast to Coast was such a delight. Patience should be Judy's middle name. since this was our first time to use them, we were a little green, but Judy just hung in there and made us understand just how everything went!!! With very short notice, she got us a good rate with one of Phuket's finest resorts. The Katathani Resort was just one of the best we had ever stayed in! The staff went up and beyond customer service :) Great stay!!! Our staff in Bangkok at the Grande Centre Point Ratchadmeri Hotel was just as impressive as the neighbor in Phuket.
Jesse and Kimberly
Grand Saline, TX
Thank you for making my flight enjoyable and helping make connections. Special thanks to Judy for her help. Had a wonderful time.
Hi Kim- We just returned from our trip to Florida. I wanted to say thank you for your help with booking our fabulous vacation villa at Calypso City!!! Our two bedroom looked exactly like the photos you sent me. It was fresh, newer unit, and had excellent pools. Plus, very close to Disney World. I am not sure if all the units were this fantastic, but for future bookings, unit 208 in building 223 was the best! When I checked the reviews for Calypso Cay they were mixed, but the villas are a great deal. No problems with anything. Also, front desk will give you an iron and hair dryer to use for the week - no charge unless you don't return them when you check out. Ironing board is in the room. If we wanted to return here or use your timeshare in the future, would I be able to contact you directly? Thanks again for sending us to this great place.
We found the travel arrangements to go very smoothly. Tammy was excellent in working with us to find a date and available cruises the would accommodate our schedule. We enjoyed the cruise very much.
John and Patricia
The hotel where we stayed in Charleston, SC was an older one; however, they provided excellent service!
The Holiday Inn- Midtown, Savanna, GA was OK, but nothing special; however, their rate was great and had a good breakfast!
Thank you for booking us with such expediency and friendliness!
Peggy and Paul
Thank you for the services received and the help in planning the trip for a long time dream for my family to Disney World.
Excellent attention of staff in Colombia and Marianna in the call center.
Juan Carlos and Family
You did a great job picking our stateroom on the Carnival Glory. It was an excellent location on the ship.
Thanks for making a great cruise even better.
Tammy is by far the best thing that the travel club has going for itself. I have generally been extremely happy in the commitment and follow through. I appreciate the feeling that tammy is always there for the customer, making sure that all bases are covered and that the customer us satisfied. In the case of this recent travel, the honeymoon couple was disappointed with the original accommodations. When Tammy became aware of the situation, she was quick and thorough is developing cost effective alternatives that proved to be outstanding.
My hat is off to Tammy.
Robert and Sarah
We prearranged a motel room about 550 miles from our home for a one night stay, going to a vacation destination that we had bought into years ago.
The lady who made the arrangements did as we asked and found a motel that suited the six of us very well.
I was going to call for arrangements on home trip but with two planned stops we could not determine where we might stop. We drove till we were tired and found a place.
Roland and Betty
We stayed at a Best Western on sount UT. It was a good experience. I also appreciated the car rental service at a good price.
Russell and Carol
Hotel was excellent! When I couldn't get a room you were able to come through for me. The trip was wonderful and the hotel was just across the street from the convention center. Thanks for getting the job done first class!
Carolyn and Donald
I really enjoy this vacation club
Fransis has done a fantastic job for me and my wife. He has helped us on making reservations for our cruises. He has always returned our calls when we have had to leave a message for him. My wife says he is very plesasent to talk to, he has made my life easy because he makes my wife happy when he helps us book our trips. People like francis make everything go smooth when your planning a trip. Francis has just been fantastic. Thank you.
Peter & Josephine
I have used Grand Getaways for my travel needs for several years . I like to ask for Judy, She is always very pleasant and so helpful with getting me great prices. All me experiences have been wonderful.Many thanks to Judy and Grand Getaways.
Blue Springs, OH
We had a fun time. We had good service, great hotels fantastic food, and good guides. Thank you Judyfor arraanging this for us, you were very helpful and proffesional from the start.
My stay at the hotel was very comfortable and satisfying. Thank you, for all your help Grand Getaways made my trip a success.
Tammy Barngrover recently worked with me on arrangments for a trip to Denmark with my husband and two grandaughters. I could not have done it without her! She was invaluable in making reservations for us as well as precautions for traveling with the children. Thanks to her the trip was perfect and we had a great time. Many thanks for putting in the effort to make our trip flawless.
Bonnie & Roger
I am writing to express our sincere thanks for the excellent arrangments you made for our reservation at the Blue Tree at Lake Buena Vista. Everything went really well, and our travel level of satisfaction was wuite high. Thanks again for for the high level of quality service. We hope to use your services on our next vacations.
You are just too good to be true!!! Lee and I want to thank you again for the effort you expended to get the motels for us at the time and place we requested. We requested the motels to be the cleanest. You met all of our expectations.
En-route to moble, the most exceptional motel was the Best Western Chateau Louisianne in Baton Rouge. I heartily recommend it. As you enter you get the feeling you are entering an outdoor courtyard, beautiful. Our room was a delightful suite, large and comfortable. They had a scrumptious complementary breakfast. They had eggs, grits, meats, cereals, fruit, various drinks, and more than I can remember. We were sorry that we could only spend one night. One of the least expensive we stayed in. It definitely was the best value for the entire trip.
In Mobile you situated us exactly where we wanted to be. The Hampton Inn had everything we wanted, the room contained the microwave and refrigerator as we asked for. Their staff was very hospitable, and accommodating.
What a sterling performer you are!!! On very short notice, you made all of the arrangements, and sent me an e-mail with all of the information before you left the office. Well done, and many thanks!!!
On the way home our first stop was for two nights at the Charion Inn on Canal Street in New Orleans. We had a wonderful visit. The location was what we asked for, and the street car stopped right down the street, so getting around was really busy. We got to do what we wanted to do. It was fun!!!
In San Antonio we spent two nights at the Crowne Plaza. We asked to be near the River Walk, it was right ouside our window! The Alamo was within sight and only a short walk away. We enjoyed revisiting Alamo, boating, and walking River Walk. We had a good time.
Our trip was, for us, a grand success. We did what we wanted to, stayed where we wanted to stay. Thanks again to you, we thoroughly enjoyed visiting family and sight-seeing.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for arranging our stays for us. In every instance you provided what we asked for, where we asked for it, and we are extremely satisfied with our accommodations. Many thanks for a job exceptionally well done!!!
Andy and Lee
I just want to tell you what an excellent employee you have-April. I dealt with her last year on a vacation and got amazing service. What a blessing! She got me an absolutely beautiful 2 bedroom condo in 24 hours. I certainly will call April to get my next vacation scheduled. My thanks to April and to you for having such a wonderful employee.
Just wanted to let you know that we had a great time staying at the Wyndham Ocean Walk Resort in Daytona Beach last month. It was a very nice place. The sunrises from our balcony were beautiful. They brought in a dance instuctor the first night and she taught us some basic ballroom dancing and Zumba. We went to her studio several times for more lessons and fun. Thanks.
I just wanted to say what a pleasure it was dealing with our Travel Representative, Janice. She worked with me for over a few monthes, helping me create a special trip for me and my family. I was looking for a vacation that was family oriented , reasonable, and relaxing and she found it. We had a great time and can't wait to return. I will be calling again to plan our next vacation
It was beautiful on the resort. At the Natura Park we had a wonderful time. The flight over and back was nice. I am looking foward to my next vacation.
Ronald & Debbie
Tammy does a great job helping us with our vacation plans. A few years ago she got great pricing for a plane trip to Cancun. We just booked a motel for a trip to Myrtle Beach, and found a price that we felt was suitable for us. Thanks again!
Pat & Curt
My prayers were answered! Tammy found us great air fare. She has excellent professionalism, and a great sense of humor. I was almost giving up Christmas with my grandchildren, until she found us affordable air fare. She is an asset to your travel department, we are very satisfied with the service proveded by Tammy.
Richard & Susan
Boca Raton, Fl
I have been talking with Connie for the past week about trying to get my hotel room switched back to the original dates. She was super patient and nice enough to move my dates back a day the first time. She is now trying so hard to get them to give me back my original dates. I am impressed that she has gone so far out of her way to work with me, even though I am forever changing my mind. I just wanted to let you know about her professionalism. Thank you.
Janice it is a pleasure talking to you. As I told you over the phone you are an asset to the company. You are nice, prompt, and courteous. Thank you.
Christie and Tammy,
Results do matter! Because of the efforts put forth by each of you, my wife and I will be able to make a trip to New York from here in central Texas that, quite frankly, we didn't think we would ever be able to make. Not only will we be going, but the flight times Tammy was able to arrange for us couldn't be any better, we are very pleased. You can be sure we will always remember this trip! Thank you again, one and all.
Richard & Tina
Thank you so much for booking this. I just want you to know that I really appreciate all the help you have given me. To acctually look for a cheaper price was above and beyond the call of duty! You really worked hard in getting the best for us! I am so happy. Thank you for doing your best to help us achieve a wonderful weekend. Thanks again Tammy for all of your help!
Kansas City, Mo
We had very smooth airline connections, a wonderful condo, a very nice view, and a 2010 Doge Charger. We were very satisfied! We had wonderful service from you and the condo department,and are looking forward to working with you again.
Dennis & Barbara
Globus personnel and the town itself were outstanding, as were our dealings with your representative Judy. She was a pleasure to work with, thank you.
Joseph & Betty
This was the first time I used Grand Getaways to book leaisure travel plans. I was not sure what to expect, but I was surprised on every level. Tammy and Grand Getaways exceeded my expectations . From the beginning to the end, my friends and I experienced a vacation that we will talk about for many years. The staff, food, and accomodations were were superb! We cant wait to plan another "girls getaway".
Long Beach, Ca
My husband and I needed a specific check in date for a 2 bedroom. I was impressed that you called back the very first day with the three possibilities I inquired. Not only did you find a 2 bedroom for us on the right date, but the price was actually $200 less than anything previously mentioned. I want you to know how very much I appreciate your good work! Thank you, you are and angel.
I was very pleased with the courteous and efficient service I recieved when booking our Delta Airline flight over Labor Day weekend. Our trip to Idaho went very smoothly. When comparing our ticket costs with others, we relized that we definitely got the lowest rates. We will most surely use Coast to Coast for our future travel needs.
Marcia and Paul
Janice has helped us many times before and always treats us like VIP's. She is thorough and organized, you always know that you are getting the best of everything. We truly appriciate her time, patience, and help she always gives us.

Janice is a very smart, kind, and happy person. She is so enjoyable to talk to. What wonderful customer service I have recieved from her. She is very valuable to your team, and we appreciate her. Thank you Janice. Have a great day!
Thank you very much for your hard work.
Now that I have your e-mail adress, I hope I can Communicate with you via e-mail!
We just got back from Branson last night. This is where you arranged for a condo on the golf course for us. I wanted to let you know we were very happy with the whole arrangement, both the room and the price. Thank you very much. While in Branson, we also utilized our membership to get reduced ticket prices, so that also was a benefit of our membership.
Thank you very much!
Thanks for checking on the vacation, it was GREAT!! The condo was great and so was the facility. Everyone was extremely nice, they coundn't have been any nicer. THANK YOU again for all your help. I am working on my husband to take a cruise, and I am looking at a vacation for next year already.
Thanks again. Have a great day!!!
Thank you for making the extra effort to have our trip to Branson nudged forward by one day. You handled that effciently and quickly. Our whole experience with you has been very favorable. I suspect that Coast to Coast Grand Getaways is fortunate to have you for an employee.
I want to thank you for your kindness and patience that you extend to me. In this day, sometimes it is hard to find those values in people. Especially in your job in dealing with the public.
I really appreciate those valuse. I am a senior citizen, and every penny counts. Again thank you, your employees are fortunate to have a compassionate person like you as an employee.
Coral Springs, FL
Our travel from St. Louis, to Houston, to Cancun was smooth, orderly, and on time. After we passed the gauntlet at the Cancun Airport, our driver was courteous and prompt. We stayed at Laguna Suites, with a second floor room with balcony. We were pleasantly surprized and very pleased with the resort. Our service was very nice, and we cannot say enough about the restaurant and the staff. They made our trip a wonderful memory and we made some new friends. Being the quiet type folks, this resort was the best choice for us. We visited all the other properties, however the personal service at the Laguna was home for us. It was all inclusive and perfect. All our day trips and concierge services were on time, as advertised, and well done. The Laguna Suites was well maintained, very clean, and was very nice.
We like our Coast to Coast Grand Getaways package, and plan to keep it, and use it.
The rest of the trip was very, very nice. From the 30 minute yacht ride, to the last day out to Xelha and back, all we did we were treated very well. The flight back was the same, on time, smooth, and safe.
In conclusion, we were very satisfied with the entire package. Muy Bueno!!!!!

Tammy was incredible!!! I could never have made our convoluted reservations without her expert and patient help. We had a last minute moment of panic at the airport on my flight day, but the dysfunction was with American Airlines, not Grand Getaways. Tammy has completely restored my faith in our membership. Thank you!!!!
Hi Ruth! Just wanted to let you know the trip was fabulous!!! My sister and I really enjoyed ourselves. I thought the weather was perfect (mid to upper 80s). We lounged around the pool a few days, did a canopy tour, and zip lined through the mountians. One day which was a blast we took a catamaran boat tour and went snorkeling. Another day we went to Yalapa, and the guide was a hoot. We ate out at local restaurants every night, and did a little shopping. We ate seafood five out of seven nights there, it was so fresh and so tasty! The town and bus system was super easy and cheap. Pretty much everyone spoke English and was nice and friendly. The resort and town was not crowded or busy, and the service was great too.
It's been hard being back at work this week. Thanks again for all your help, and have a happy Memorial Day weekend!!
Everything went very smoothly for us as we cruised Alaska on the Norwegian Star.
Janice made sure we had everything in order. We do not travel that much and it is so nice to have no worries with airlines, and transfers to and from the ship. It was great to have that all in hand, and be taken care of so efficiently. Thanks so much.
Dawn and Donnie
We were very happy with our Globus Tour of Alaska. Our travel guide, and bus driver were very good. Our tour guide Silvia was a great help to us.
Alan and Ella
This was a last minute reservation to attend a funeral. You found me the last seat on the flight and I appreciated it. I then made reservations for a flight the week of my vacation.
Thank you Grand Incentives!
Judy you did a very good job, thank you.
We thank you for all your help when we were booking our flights. It was great to know that you were there helping us. Especially when our flights were changed. You were able to get all nine of us on another flight that worked for us.
Gaylon and Pamela
Grand getaways did an excellent job with the travel arrangements.
We felt that your company did a very good job. The connections were on time, and everything went as planned.

Janice was very helpful in planning our trip to the UK. We had fairly complicated plans and she was able to schedule transportation and housing, all of which worked very well for us. We hope to use your services in the future.
Ralph and Mary
The flights were on time and pleasant. The food was wonderful. Your work on getting my flight was wonderful Judy, and I thank you.

Just wanted to lest you know how much we enjoyed Little Harbor, Tampa Bay. It was first class all the way. It was exactly the kind of getaway we wanted.
Thanks again and we may very well consider a return trip in the future.
Dear Tammy and Jamie,
Please forgive this way-too informal communication, but I wanted to send you both a HUGE thank you from me and my entire family.
Our weekend at the Majestic Mountian Pool Lodge was absolutely fantastic, and the Majestic Mountian crew was so wonderful and responsive whenever we needed anything. Jamie, I'm sorry I didn't get to meet with you in-person, but my niece couldn't say enough good things about you. :-) Thank you for all your help above-and-beyond.
My thanks as well to Tracy and Crystal, as well as Norm, their speedy, on-the-spot maintenance expert who made it possible for us to give that monster grill a good workout.
We're already looking foward to the 2011 sequel, so I'm sure I'll be back in touch before too ling.
Again, many thanks for a WONDERFUL experience.
June 24, 2010
I do apologize for being late in sending in my thanks for all the hard work Tammy went through to set us up in a unit meeting our requirements. It was really an effort above and beyond her normal duties. She didn't quit until she found one. We truly appreciate her efforts.
Nancy & William
Our trip to New Zealand was so wonderful it is hard to describe. The car rental went smoothly with no problems. The hotels were pretty good. Judy, you were great trying to work with my schedule, but you got it done and we appreciate that a lot.
Linda & Chuck
Thanks so much for helping to organize our trip to Quebec City. We just returned and everything turned out wonderfully. We appreciate your professionalism and assistance.
This was by far the best trip we have been on. We are going back to Playa Del Carmen again. This trip was twice as good as Hawaii.
PS: Thanks Judy for a wonderful trip.
Union City, TN
Judy was absolutely wonderful! She was on top of any concern we had. Our trip was wonderful due to her hard work.

Judy, the trip met our expectations. The tour director Alison was outstanding. After speaking with the other people on the tour who had taken Globus or affiliate tours, they said she made the tour very informative, witty, and kept everyone on time. Stacy even took an optional second day snorkeling the Great Barrier Reef. I'll call you when I get into a groove.
Ft. Myers, Florida
The air travel was fine. The AA flights were on time, all four segments. All four of the flights were fully booked. The car rental through Enterprise excellent.

I want to take this time to thank you for your hard work, to line up the dates I had requested for March and September, 2010 for Daytona.

Our Condo in Cape Coral at Marina Village was fabulous! You picked a good place for us. We were really happy with the accommodations. Our vacation was great!
We had great flights both ways. We have been going to Mexico for over 20 years. We need to use this travel more. Let us know if you have some hot deals.

Our 7 day Western Caribbean cruise on the Crown Princess was wonderful. Many thanks to Janice for all of her help with this booking. She did a great job in coordinating our booking with our friend's booking so that we would all dine together, and be near each other on the ship. She always goes that extra mile when we cruise.
Barbara & Harvey
We had very good prices, great hotel accommodations, and courteous, knowledgeable representatives at Grand Getaways. We would recommend Grand Getaways and look forward to other trips.
The 7 day Western Caribbean cruise on the Royal Caribbean cruise line, booked with Janice's assistance was wonderful and enjoyed by all of us. The accessibility on the Liberty of the Seas was beyond any of our expectations. Thank you very much for the assistance in booking the vacation.
Janice & Lee
I just wanted to tell you, after many months how much my family and I enjoyed our vacation last summer at Branson, MO. The condo at Stonebridge Resort Village was just great. The location was quiet and beautiful. The grandkids had a nearby pool to enjoy all week long and the location was perfect, just down the road from Silver Dollar City. I had saved some pictures to send you but then I was unable to find an address for Go Grand Getaways. I don't know how to send pictures from the e-mail but my daughter, Laura, said sometime she will help me do that. We are thinking about taking a trip to Tennessee this summer. If you know about any condos at Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg, Tennessee, you can let us know. I hope hope you had a nice Christmas and are doing well. We have had snow here in Arkansas for the past few days. It is pretty cold and I am enjoying the thoughts of Spring and the warm weather returning. Have a great day !

We are long on travel clubs as that is our passion. When I called to update information on Go Grand Getaways, I casually mentioned that we were having a wedding in San Diego August 6-13 2010, and needed accommodations located as closely as possible to the downtown area. When you called to inform us of your find, I was in pure shock, never expecting that you could offer the World Mark Mission Hills condos. Although it is much more pricey than we had planned, we realize that to locate 5 two bedroom units in one facility with kitchens, within 15 minutes of major attractions, was a winner. With 12 timeshares with RCI and II, we had checked with them and there was nothing. Kudos!!!
Our "fussy" children were pleased with your selection for us. A wedding is a special occasion and we are delighted with the end result.
Lew, through our phone contacts, we have made a friend--- although living in Sarasota--a lovely city---you have helped to make this family occasion a dream because of your effort.

Our vacation stay in Nacogdoches, TX was just a weekend for rest and relaxation. And what I came away with is RELAXED! Days Inn was a nice and a pleasant place to stay.

Kahana Beach Vacation Club review:
First of all, we want to express our appreciation for the job-well-done by Mike at Grand Getaways. He was always very professional, patient, and helpful. We were pleased with the resort and the cost. We would recommend Mike to anyone and hope he will be our vacation specialist in the future.
We stayed at the Kahana Beach Vacation Club on Maui, March 21 through April 4, 2009, just a scenic, 45-minute drive from the Kahului Airport. One of the first things to point out is that the sign out front is “Kahana Beach Resort”. We passed it up because it didn’t say Kahana Beach Vacation Club. We found this resort to be a very good value for the money spent. This is an older resort but is clean, the condo (for a studio) was spacious, and the staff was friendly. Parking is ample but a bit cramped; overflow parking is allowed at a resort across the street or on the street. Our particular room was just steps from the elevator, and our lanai (balcony) gave us an ocean view to the left and mountain view to the right. On more than one morning, we were afforded a very colorful view of Hawaii’s vivid rainbows over the mountains. Needless to say, cameras ready at all times. The bed was a queen size Murphy Bed but was very comfortable and easy to put up and down, even for us folks in our sixties. They offer various activities Monday through Friday, that include lei making classes, guided nature walk, ice cream social, and a hamburger get acquainted social at no additional cost. They have a nice outdoor pool and hot tub on a deck that jets out onto the beach. We actually sat in the hot tub and watch whales off shore—a really neat experience. The hot tub area also affords a beautiful sunset experience as it sets between the Islands of Lanai and Molokai. The location is great allowing for quiet on the beach and yet just a ten to fifteen drive from nice shopping areas, multiple restaurants, and also the very popular Lahaina Harbor area. There is a sister resort next door where you can enjoy the guided nature walk through their beautiful garden areas. A very nice, poolside restaurant is at that resort, of course within a short walking distance. They have good food and moderate “Hawaiian” prices for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
We would definitely stay there again and coordinate our arrangements through Mike.

Ron is an angel. Last Fall, my 7 friends and I had signed up for a tour of Croatia when the tour was canceled. Well we were set on taking this trip if at all possible. I called and got Ron on the phone. Well he very professionally gave me some options. He shepherded me through all the preparations and our group of eight traveled to Croatia.
Ron had made all the arrangements for less than we had paid for the canceled tour. We were met by the tour guides at the time and place given in our itinerary. We lucked out and in most hotels got no extra cost room upgrades (it was the end of their tourist season). We were met by a friendly van driver and toured to all of the destinations Ron had arranged for us each day. Needless to say, we had a ball, you might say the best of our tours to date (we travel together most every Fall). Grand Getaways is our travel agent whenever we have time and savings to tour the world. Hip!hip! hurrah!.

The World War II Memorial Tour my son and I went on in September, 2009 was arranged by Tammy of Grand Getaways. Everything was handled expediently and efficiently by Tammy. All of my questions were answered and everything was just as it was supposed to be. I recommend using Grand Getaways for any of your travel needs.
Erma & Carl
We really enjoyed working with Judy. She really did a great job setting up our trip. We were very satisfied with Globus. We felt we got an overall view of the country of Ireland. We thought the meal of the last night together should have been included but some of the travelers didn't want the added expense. We were very satisfied with the places we stayed and the meals that were included. Thank you for helping us have a very enjoyable vacation.
Glenn & Karen
Thank you for booking us at the Westgate Branson Woods. We stayed in a one bedroom condo the week of October 4th - October 11th, 2009. We enjoyed it very much. Very relaxing resort. Beautiful location and close to everything.
Thank you again,
Merlin & Christy
We are extremely satisfied with the agenda Grand Getaways agent Janice prepared for us. We had a wonderful time and everything went smoothly thanks to her careful planning. Southwest airlines was reliable. Janice also took the time to keep us informed of what was going on. This trip was a last minute decision on our part - we are thrilled to have celebrated it this way. Thanks Janice.

RE: ITALY TOUR
Trip was great!! So much to see. Your recommendation of this tour was excellent. Motorcoach was very clean and comfortable. Giovani did a great job driving and Carmine is an excellent tour representative and guide. He gave us a lot of information for places to see and eat on our free time. Local agent met us at the Rome airport and helped us find things faster. Janice, thanks again for a great job of arranging everything.

Walt and I want to thank you for recommending the Best Western Dockside at Mackinaw City. The accommodations were very clean, comfortable and the for the price and location all was great. We would highly recommend it.

Everything went very smoothly for us, we cruised Alaska on the Norwegian Star on July 4-11. Janice made sure we had everything in order. We took our two grandsons and we had a blast the entire trip. We do not travel as much and it's so nice to have no worry with airlines, transfers to and from the ship, etc. We are so grateful to have all of your services available and to be taken care of so efficiently. Thanks so much.

Tammy was invaluable! I could never have made our convoluted reservations without her expert and patient help. We had a last minute moment of panic at the airport on our flight day, but the dysfunction was with the airlines, not Grand Getaways. Thank you Tammy, this experience has completely given us faith in our membership.

We were very happy with our Globus tour of Alaska. Our travel guide and bus driver were very good. Our Globus tour guide was a great help to us. Thank you Judy!

Janice was very helpful in planning our trip to the UK. We had fairly complicated plans and she was able to schedule transportation and housing, all of which worked very well for us. We hope to use the service in the future.

First of all, we want to express our appreciation for the job-well-done by Mike at Grand Getaways. He was always very professional, patient, and helpful.
We were pleased with the resort and the cost. We would recommend Mike to anyone and hope he will be our vacation specialist in the future.
We stayed at the Kahana Beach Vacation Club on Maui, March 21 through April 4, 2009, just a scenic, 45-minute drive from the Kahului Airport. One of the first things to point out is that the sign out front is “Kahana Beach Resort”. We passed it up because it didn’t say Kahana Beach Vacation Club. We found this resort to be a very good value for money spent. This is an older resort but is clean, the condo (for a studio) was spacious, and the staff was friendly. Our particular room was just steps from the elevator, and our lanai (balcony) gave us an ocean view to the left and mountain view to the right. On more than one morning, we were afforded a very colorful view of Hawaii’s vivid rainbows over the mountains. Needless to say, cameras ready at all times. They offer various activities Monday through Friday, that include lei making classes, guided nature walk, ice cream social, and a hamburger get acquainted social at no additional cost. They have a nice outdoor pool and hot tub on a deck that jets out onto the beach. We actually sat in the hot tub and watch whales off shore—a really neat experience. The hot tub area also affords a beautiful sunset experience as it sets between the Islands of Lanai and Molokai. The location is great allowing for quiet on the beach and yet just a ten to fifteen drive from nice shopping areas, multiple restaurants, and also the very popular Lahaina Harbor area. There is a sister resort next door where you can enjoy the guided nature walk through their beautiful garden areas. A very nice, poolside restaurant is at that resort, of course within a short walking distance. They have good food and moderate “Hawaiian” prices for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
We would definitely stay there again and coordinate our arrangements through Mike. Thank you, Mike, for your part in making our vacation worry free and enjoyable.

I appreciated the frequent updates regarding changes in our flight number. Everything was accurate and clear. You did an excellent job. Thanks Judy!
Our travel from St. Louis, to Houston, to Cancun was orderly and on time. The driver was courteous and prompt. We stayed at the Laguna Suites at a 2nd floor room with a balcony. Our service was very nice always and we cannot say enough about the restaurant and its staff. We were pleasantly surprised and pleased with the resort. The personal service at the Laguna Suites was home for us. All our day trips and concierge services were on time, as advertised and well done. The rest of our trip was also very, very nice. From our 30 minute yacht ride, to the last day out to Xecha and back. Our flight back home was just as pleasant, on time, smooth and safe. In conclusion, we were entirely satisfied with our Coast To Coast package; we plan on keeping and using it.

Just wanted to let you know our trip was fabulous. My sister and I really enjoyed ourselves at Puerto Vallarta. The town/bus system was super easy and cheap to get aroud, everyone spoke English which made the place friendly. By the way, the " Canopy Tour" was a blast. Once again, thank you Ruth for all your help.
Judy did a very good job. Thank you!
We felt your company did a very good job. The connections and everything went as planned.

I had a pleasant experience speaking with April and her Manager Lew today. They were so nice and Friendly, very helpful to my needs, and perfect for their positions at Grand Get Always. It’s rare to find people who are happy at what they do. I felt good and important to them when we were speaking. Please be sure to put a copy of my letter in their files and let them know I wrote this. I will continue to tell friends about grand get always and I hope you will continue to hire excellent PR people like April and Lew.
Accomodations at Laguna Suites Golf and Resort were the highlights of the trip. We are not your "typical" Cancun partiers, so the Laguna Suites was ideal for us. The restraunt staff got the highest marks for hospitality, friendliness, and courtiousness. All the staff at the resort did their jobs well. Trip was a delight.
The flight was Okay and the vacation was very good. The help we received from the club was very helpful and they were very curtious towards us.
My Son and his girls say it was a great and lovely room. Everything was good
St. Louis, MO
Vacation in Mexico
We went to an all inclusive resort in Mexico. The cost of the trip was reasonable and the Resort was good. It was located approx. one hour from the merida airport on the Carribbean Sea. It was an older resort, but well maintained. Food and drinks were plentiful. It had a very nice New Year's eve party. I would recommend it for people who want to be away from the hustle & bustle.
I just want to share with you how much we enjoyed our stay at Star Island. It was all that you said it would be and more There wasn't time to take advantage of all opportunities that were there but we enjoyed all that we did participate in. Our experience with Coast to Coast Grand Getaways has been very positive. We were somewhat skeptical due to our former association with a travel club but your personal attention and helpfulness has been very reassuring.
We appreciated our visit with you and David and I will take the information from him Concerning Grand Vacations and give it to our Human Resources department. Thanks again for all your courtesy Lew!
Star Island Trip
Excellent trip! Facilities were god, travel arrangements excellent and weather was great!
Thanks Judy! Ted and Jane Schellermann
Hi Joan ,
We had a wonderful time on the cruise and everything went well. Thank you for your help.
Service on continental was fine. Return was delayed due to weather conditions, but nothing too inconvenient. Check in was smooth.
The trip was a good trip and the service provided by everyone involved was excellent. We had a nice suite for a week where we were able to relax, tour, and enjoy the amenities at the location where we stayed, plus the other amenities provided by sunset groups other properties. We also visited chichen itza and island mugeres.
We recently traveled on the Carnival Spirit to the Mexican Rivera. We left on 2-16-09 and returned on 2-24-09. The service that we received from Grand Getaways was excellent. We especially liked the very good service that Janice Merrill gave us. She always treated us like we were part of her family. Thanks again for a great vacation. I think we will probably go again in July.
Janice is a KEEPER! She worked very closely with us (2 couples cruising together) last year to make sure that we received the best rate, the best cabin location, dining arrangements, etc. She definitely did a GREAT JOB of hand-holding us through the entire process. We were so happy with the treatment that we received that we (the 2 couples again) booked another 7 day cruise through Janice for next month. Again she came through with flying colors to make sure that we received the best cabin (deck and location) for the price.
I am a Director of a $2 Billion Company and know how difficult it is to find and keep quality talent in a seemingly shrinking employment pool these days. As I said earlier, Janice is a keeper and I hope that she will be rewarded for her fine efforts.
We had a wonderful time. Janice was very helpful and extremely professional form the moment a quote was requested. She was also very timely with her response and outstanding in providing accurate information. Thank you-SA

Feb. 21, 2009 to Feb. 25, 2009
This is our fourth time going to Florida. This time going to Orlando than Daytona Beach and finally Sarasota, Where we met friends that we encountered through e-mails but had never met them. Thanks to Tammy for all her help in booking the flights and hotels for us, It was a wonderful experience we will not soon forget, She was a constant help seeming to know exactly what we wanted at an affordable price. The weather was great, hitting the low 80s a couple of days and just a few hours of rain throughout the trip. Got to talk to everyone at Grand Getaway from Tammy and Ron to Janice and Ruth, even talked to Mike and Tommy, don't get me wrong they all treated us very well with Janice doing the first booking on our first flight and accommodation's, but there is something special about Tammy as she put herself in the clients shoes and if it's not perfect to her she will not recommend it. After numerous calls from Tammy and the other way around she got us the best deals For our budget, thanks again Tammy for your excellent choices and keep up the good work, Looking forward to our next holiday, Will not hesitate to use Grand Getaways again, Bye for now, but you will hear from us very soon.
Mike and Marcella
Our two week stay at Sandals Montego Bay was great. The staff there was absoultely awesome and the shows at night were great. The airplanes do fly directly over the resort but after awhile you become immune to them.We flew Air Jamaica and found this airline to be top-notch. All of this fun-filled vacation would not have been possible without the fantastic job Janice Merrill did in arranging our trip. Her courteous, professional, sincere, prompt. and efficient response to our needs and questions was greatly appreciated. She certainly is a credit to Coast to Coast Grand Getaways. We look forward to working with her again.

Jean and Patricia Morrison
Our trip was wonderful! Really did not have time for much, cause it was short. Our trip over was not very pleasant because we flew stand by and were not able to get on on a plane till our confirmed flight. Judy our agent, has always been very pleasant and helpful.
Janice was a pleasure to work with, she was always cheerful and easy to talk with. We upgraded to the extended balcony stateroom, and it was well worth the extra money.Carnival cruise line is top notch. The food, entertainment and accommodations where great.

WE BOOKED OUR WEEK AT WESTGATE BRANSON WOODS THRU COAST TO COAST GRAND GETAWAYS. THE FACILITIES WE EXPERIENCED THERE WERE SOME OF THE BEST WE’VE EVER KNOWN. EVERYTHING WAS PROVIDED EXCEPT THE FOOD OF COURSE. THE FURNISHINGS WERE ALL IMMACULATE AND VERY STYLISH INCLUDING A JACUZZI IN THE MASTER BEDROOM. THERE WERE NUMEROUS ACTIVITIES TO ENGAGE IN EVERYDAY, ALONG WITH HIKING AND THE USE OF THE INDOOR AND OUTDOOR POOLS. THE GOUNDS WERE BEAUTIFUL AND VERY WELL MAINTAINED. THE RESORT STAFF WAS FRIENDLY, EFFICIENT AND RESPONSIVE, WHEN WE HAD A NOISE SITUATION DEVELOP NEXT DOOR. THE COST WAS VERY REASONABLE THANKS TO OUR CLUB MEMBERSHIP. BRANSON IS A GREAT PLACE TO VISIT WITH SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE. THIS WAS A MOST RELAXING AND PLEASUREABLE WEEK WE WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS EXPERIENCE TO ANYONE.

Laura and I made it back from Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic late this past Saturday night. The week went by fast. The Lifestyle Crown Residence Suites were nice. There is a lot of new construction going on building new 1,2,3,4,5,6, & 7 room villas. The Gardens section is no longer in use and is going to be replaced with something new. The weather was absolutely fabulous. You get off the resort and you talk about third world country…….. Thanks for all your help and support.
You will hear from me again on my next trip.
I want to take this opportunity to thank Tammy and Ron for saving our anniversary trip. Due to the totally unprofessional and disingenuous behavior of Cameron and Sun Travel Systems, we did not have a confirmed hotel for our trip.
Ron and Tammy found us a great looking resort for a good price at the very last minute. And they were so gracious and efficient while doing it. It is a credit to your organization to have great employees such as this to be your outward facing component.
They are truly fantastic, and my wife and I sincerely appreciate them and know our future travel needs will be handled by the best!
To long of lay over in New Jersey, other then that good services.
I arranged this vacation for my son Bruce Harmon. He and his wife had a wonderful time and enjoyed thier stay.
Your travel agent Janice made the arrangements for me and was most professional and courteous. In fact she just made all the arrangements for a ten day cruise we are taking shortly and its been a pleasure dealing with her.
Orlando Hotel Stay
The trip was perfect. Airlines and accomodations couldn't have been better.
Ronald and Charmaine
We stayed at the Crown Plaza in Minneapolis, MN. We were very happy with the accommodations. The rooms were large, very clean, and nicely decorated. The price was very reasonable. Thank you Tammy for making our reservations.
James and Janet
Judy was immensly helpful to me when making my travel plans. She was very patient, thorough & diligent. The vacation package was just what we were looking for. Judy helped sve us money by arranging separate fflights than the chartered ones and coordinating our departures, as my sister and I live in different cities. The brendan travel company was wonderful and I have highly recommended their services to other friends and would book with them in the future.
We booked our week at Westgate Branson Woods thru Coast to Coast Grand Getaways. The facilities we experienced there were some of the best we've ever known. Everything was provided except the food of course. The furnishings were all immaculate and very well maintained.
There were numerous activites to engage in everyday, along with hiking and the use of the indoor and outdoor pools. THe grounds were beautiful and very well maintained. The resort staff was friendly, efficient and responsive, when we had a noise situation develop next door. The cost was very reasonable tanks to our club membership.
Branson is a great place to visit with something for everyone. This was a most relaxing and pleasureable week we would highly recommend this experience to anyone.

Our experience was a trip of a lifetime, everything was so well organized by Judy Weppler, that we had no worries at all. Even when we encountered a time zone problem (air flight) in Tahiti - Grandgetaways stepped up and took care of it all. We are considering another extended vacation, and Judy would certainly be the first call we will make.
Many thanks to all of you.
Lucy & Tom
Outstanding service. Everyone involved all along the way was very helpfull and very pleasant. Judy W. scheduled our trip and gave advise and tips when we were planning. Katerina (land portion) was very knowledgable and super nice. The woman who was part of our cruise portion was also very nice. There was also a woman who organized things in Greece who was great. The whole experience with Globus was excellent. Everyone we delt with was very pleasant, very organized and made the trip a success.
My friend Vionnette had her luggage lost in Terminal 5 in London. The girls made nuberous calls for several days regarding this issue. It was difficult I'm sure because thousands of pieces of luggage were lost when terminal 5 opened. They persisted until it was located and then they had it delivered to our hotel. That was the only bump in the road we encountered. The luggage was missing for about 4 or 5 days.
We lost a day of sight seeing because she had to shop for some clothes. That was the last thing we had planned on doing. But... thank goodness they handled all of this because we would have spent tons of time, money and patience trying to resolve this. I would defenitly recommend this trip and these companies (Globus and Grand Get Aways) to anyone who is planning a vacation. Thank you for making it a vacation we will always remember.
Frances and Vionette
Dealing with Judy for our trip to Italy was excellent. We enjoyed all the cities and the hotels. The train rides and tours were not all pleasant or easy for older persons. We did have a good time, though, and again were very pleased with Judy's arrangements and help with our travel plans.
Herbert and Thelma
We had a wonderful honeymoon! The hotels in Mykonos and Santorini were FABULOUS, especially the one in Mykonos. Not crazy about the Baby Grand in Athens- It wasn’t “bad” but a little too boutique-chic-contemporary for our style and would not stay there again.
Judy, you were really instrumental in helping us put together this wonderful honeymoon and we really appreciate all her help and suggestions. We loved working with you! Thank you again!!
Jonathan and Karen
One of the best trips I have taken, and I have taken many. Enjoyed the countries, the people, and the food was the best of any of my trips.The tour guide was wonderful. I liked everything about the trip. It was very easy for me.. Thank you Judy for being such a big help.
Janice is a true professional. We are happy to work with her.
The hotel Circus Circus in Las Vegas was great. US Air was not so good. We endured endless delays in both directions from Seattle to Las Vegas and back. . The US Air staff did not seem concerned with the discomfort of the passengers. We will not fly with them again.
We had a wonderful time in Hawaii and the The Reef Hotel at Waikiki was beautiful, The hotel is right on Waikiki Beach and the staff treated us very well and even upgraded us to a beach front room.
The hotel has three very good restaurants as well as a shopping area. The Reef is within walking distance frim several shopping malls and great restaurants.
We really enjoyed our stay and hope to make the trip again someday.
Keith and Tambra
Richmond Hills, TX
Janice was very helpful in scheduling our travel for our recent trip to Hawaii. She was able to get us very competetive rates on both the air fare and car rental. We wer very pleased when we arrived to find at the auto rental agency to find that the luxury car we rented was really that.
Unfortunately, it had been a while since we traveled by air and not realizing the amount of space that passengers were required to scarifice in United.s new configuration we requested economy class.
When we reached our destination I phoned Janice to inquire if it was possible to upgrade our return tickets to Economy Plus as ther was not enough leg room on the flight over.
Janice was a jewel and was able to accommodate my request for an upgrade and was back to me within 15 minutes with the confirmation number, which made our return trip home more relaxing and comfortable.
Nancy and Robert
Janice did a great job planning our cruise. She was well organized and always helpful. Great job!!
Diane and Billy
The hotel you arranged for us in Old San Juan, Puerto Rico was an excellent choice. It was small but very clean and very secure. Good for a pre or post cruise stay. It was close to everything..
Janice, thank you for all your help in plannng our vacation to Punta Cana in the the Dominican Republic. The hotel had wonderful service and good food. The beach was fantastic. A nice place for a family vacation and plan to go again soon.
Our trip with GLobus on the Italian Treasures and Rome was fantastic. Judy did a wonderful job in assisting with all of our pre-travel information. I would highly recommend the trip to anyone. Thanks, Judy.
Richard and Sharon
We enjoyed our cruise on the Royal Caribbean's "Vision of the Seas". However, we were not impressed by the three ports we visited and probably would go to different ports in the future on our next cruise.
Robert and Pauline
Our tour in China consisted of six great people and therefore the tour guides were very informative and made sure we were safe and took care of all our needs. We were able to see all the wonderful cultural sites and cities that we had read about. All our hotels in Japan and China were five star and unbelievably wonderful. We would have definitely skipped the trip to Japan if we had known prior to the week before we left, that all of our tours were cancelled due to the National Holiday. We were not able to see all we had hoped in Japan. The internal air transportation in China was very good, except for two very, very early morning flights, which caused breakfast planning a problem. We did fill out comment sheets with Pacific Delight, and explained everything we liked and disliked and asked them to respond. We are waiting to hear back. All in all, this was a trip of a lifetime and everything we had hoped it would be. Judy, you were very helpful, informative and answered all our questions. It was a pleasure working with you. We would definitely recommend this wonderful trip to everyone.
Michael and Marlene
Judy, We just returned from an amazing trip to Europe. Thank you for coordinating everything for us. Paris and Prague were just incredible! You were right about Hotel Raphael in Paris..It was just BEAUTIFUL!
Our only hitch was a delay with our luggage which is covered by the insurance package. Thank you again for all of the arrangements you made, it was a trip my wife and I will treasure forever!
Ruben and Denise
Coral Gables, FL
The air and ground accommodations made for us were excellent. Judy was familiar with Tahiti and therefore the suggestions and recommendations she had made were quite accurate. I look forward to her assisting us on other trips. The one difficulty we had was in the Sheraton in Papeete, as they did not confirm our departure date and time the day before we were to leave. This caused us to miss our flight to Morea.
Barry and Noreen

We had a wonderful. time. Judy Weppler was excellent in assisting us plan our trip. She was very thorough and took our comfort in mind by booking our flights at times that were well spaced so we did not have to be concerned with hurrying to catch our next planne. The Holland America cruise guide (Scott) was exceptional. All the guides, bus drivers and hotel personnel were very knowledgeable about the tour. They were very giving and careful of the passengers safety. Our luggage was handled very well and was exactly where it was supposed to be at all times. Since we are older, it was a GREAT idea to take the land tour first and the sea cruise last; it gave us time to rest up. You might want to keep this in mind for your older guests in the future. Overall, I would rate thie trip a 10!
Chris and Agnes
"Overall, the trip was very pleasant and we really enjoyed the whole thing. Our treatment and service from Judy at Grand Incentives was excellent. Thank you! However we found the land trips a little disapponting. Especially the eight hour Denali park trip which was tiring and uncomfortable. We found the H.A. logistics overall excellent and tour guide was okay. The cruise was outstanding, our state room very comfortable and service excellent. The food was lavish! However we were disappointed with a couple of the on-shore excursions, particularly the rain forest/ sea coast walk in Juneau. The embarkation and disembarkation process was very well organized and efficient (they have obviously had alot of practice!)"

"Our group had a marvelous time. Ron Postlewait made all the arrangements for us which included pick up from and delivery to the airport, the pick ups occurred timely and more than met our expectations. He arranged local sightseeing tours with local guides. These occurred exactly as promised and everyone in the group enjoyed them. He arranged hotel stays in 5 star hotels. Receptions occurred without difficulty and because it was the end of the season we had our rooms upgraded at no extra cost. He arranged bus tours to interesting places from our hotels. Again the drivers arrived in time and gave us private tours which everyone enjoyed. Everyone commented that our 'private tour' included everything one would have expected but was so much more enjoyable because we did not have to wait for others, we were able to ask for photo stops on the tour and we encountered friendly , helpful guides and drivers everywhere. Our group is dreaming of future trips and really appreciated the very personal and clear assistance from Ron. I would suggest that he be considered for employee of the year, if you have such a thing. This was my first use of my membership account. I had no idea what to expect. I was very, very pleasantly surprised and will certainly tell friends and other travelers about your company. As you can see my first use was not an easily challenge to Ron, Thank you very much. "
"As always, Janice provided very cordial and expedient service when making the airline reservations. She also ensured that the condo group received our lodging request in an expeditious manner. Overall, we had a great time at the Lindo Mar Resort."

"I had a wonderful experience with Grand Getaways. Everything was taken care of professionly. Judy was a pleasure to work with and the trip to Israel was wonderful. I saw everything there was to see because Judy had taken care of every detail. I will return."

"Ron & Helen: Thank you both so much for putting together our wonderful November trip to Croatia on such short notice. The itinerary was just what we wanted, and much more for the price! The tour guides and drivers assigned to us were friendly, patient, just plain wonderful. The hotels were beautiful, centrally located, and great rooms with beautiful views. The breakfasts were great too. The tours were nice, only a couple of the rainy days cut short some of our touring activities. Thank you again so much for a wonderful trip. I look forward to your assistance with our next trip. Have a Wonderful Holiday Season."
"Tammy is a great rep! She negotiated an excellent group rate for the Maclin party of 15, Folio #25050 to Washington, DC. at a time when most hotels were booked on these dates. Thanks to Tammy, our family will enjoy the historic inaugural in DC." Thank you!

"Westgate Branson Woods is a gated luxury resort situated on a secluded hill-top, yet less than half an hour from all the shows and restaurants. We stayed in a nice standard condo unit with a small kitchenette. The staff was very professional and we were treated quite well. We enjoyed the good coffee in the large main lobby every morning. Their concierge was excellent. We got tickets to all 7 shows there. All in all, we enjoyed the resort, the shows, and touring the nearby Table Rock State Park and the College of the Ozarks. A great one-week getaway!"
"My experience so far has been a positive one. Janice has always been very helpful and I believe has done her very best to find the least expensive price on all of our requests. When Jackie was there, she too was a great agent. I look forward to continue with my membership, and hope and expect to continue receiving the service, and the prices (after all, the reason for the purchase of this package was because of the attractive savings) that I have in the past."
