Family Time

5 5 1
I had a great time in the Dominican Republic, Punta Cana. I stayed at the Royalton and the resort was breathtaking. The hotel service was exceptional. Everything was well organized and flowed well from the time my family and I stepped off our flight to meet our transportation to the hotel and the departure from the hotel to catch our flight. I would definitely vacation at this resort again. I look forward to planning my next all-inclusive with Joshua Purkett.

Hours Back From Jamaica

5 5 1
Just hours back from my Jamaica vacation. After months of planning and multiple emails and loads of phone calls my vacation was absolutely FLAWLESS! I was given the name and number of this agency from a friend Brittany. She had a honeymoon that was planned by GetAway and let me know from the start that I wouldn't be disappointed. She set me up Nikki, who was away on my initial call but she had Josh follow up and then she checked to make sure he had. They both were very professional, and know the travel world like the backs of their hands. They laid out all their services from the first call, explained that I was under no obligation even after several quotes on multiple destinations and dates. I never felt pressured or obligated, or that I just couldn't simply say no. Whenever I spoke with Josh his voice had a "smile" in it, he answered my voice messages timely, my emails timely, and every question without any issue, even when I asked the same question multiple times. I spent 6 nights and 7 days in Jamaica and thanks to the team at GetAway Travel Group it was the best Jamaican experience yet. I can't wait to book my next trip with this Group!
