St Martin does not have a wide range of well-known hotels on the island, and I was keen that we stayed on the French side so when I was researching the trip I was drawn to the Mercure St Martin Marina and Spa. I have a Le Club Accor Gold card through this little trick… Read More Review: Mercure St Martin Marina and Spa
We arrived into Miami about 30 minutes ahead of the published schedule which was good because the connection time was on the short side of comfortable. Whilst I was confident that American would look after us in the case of a miss connect, and they would not have sold me the ticket if it did… Read More Mamma MIA – what a connection!
Having arrived from the lounge, we boarded the plane and settled into our separate cabins. There was an amenities bag on the seat which was full of goodies. I was particularly impressed with the little shoe bag that meant I was able to take my boots and socks off and put them in the bag… Read More Review: Iberia Business Class A340 MAD-MIA
Having spent the night at the Crowne Plaza Madrid Airport, we took the free shuttle round to the terminal and found the Business Class check-in desks.

I stayed at the Crowne Plaza last summer when I was on my wide-bodied jet tour with my Mum and was really impressed. When I knew that I would be in Madrid overnight this trip, I booked the hotel again. We had been offered an upgrade to a suite last time, but we declined as… Read More Review: Crowne Plaza Madrid Airport (again!)
I spend last summer marking exam papers, and the reward is being able to go on a week’s holiday to the Caribbean in half term. Clearly, this is a fantastic opportunity for my wife and I to practice our French by visiting a French Island, and it will be nice to relax on a beach,… Read More Can someone tell Iberia what a meal is?!
