Honeymoon of our Dreams

Reviewed on 10/24/2013 Emily H

Beach Bum Carey assisted us in selecting the perfect honeymoon getaway! We went to El Dorado Royale Casitas in Mexico for an all-inclusive vacation. The experience was remarkable-- great service, accomodations, food and a bonus honeymoon package to boot. Our room had a small... Read More pool that connected to a lazy river that connected to the main pool with a swim up pool bar! Because we were guests of Beach Bum Carey, we received upgrades and special packages including a couple's massage on the beach, a candlelit dinner on the beach and a gourmet breakfast in bed. Beach Bum Carey made all of our honeymoon planning easy, and we were able to pay for the trip over the span of the year to make it more affordable. We will be using Carey to assist us in planning our future trips.

Reviewed on 10/18/2011 Kennie S

My name is Kennie Slayton and I am a grateful client of Lisa Zwissler of Beach Bum Vacation. God blessed Lisa and I to cross path 5 years ago. We met at a bridal trade show while she was representing Beach Bum Vacation. She introduced herself to me, and told me about the kind of... Read More person she was and how she works... which were honest and straight to the point. She told me I could trust her to deliver DREAM VACATIONS beyond my expectation, and I would NEVER be disappointed in her abilities or services. With that being said... Lisa has been my travel concierge for over 4 1/2 years now. She is ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL and THE BEST at what she does. She's a true perfectionist, because she wants her clients to have a wonderful time in regards to the vacations she books for us. Lisa goes above and beyond her call of duty to ensure the clients she serves receives the best possible service she can give. I call her for advise regarding my annual trips and vacations ideas. She is honest and up-front about things even when I don't want to hear it. (That's what we love about her)She protects my interest as well as my pocket book. My husband William and I trust her wholeheartedly. Lisa has NEVER let us down, and if you choose her as your travel concierge she'll NEVER let you down !

We will be using Danialle with BeachBum for more future vacations! She was a saint!! So attentive and sweet.

Beach Bum Erica was our travel agent and other than the groom and having a DW she was my best wedding decision I made!

Erica was amazing and cannot recommend her enough!

Working with Jaimi Smith at Beach Bum Vacations was one of the best fundamental decisions my husband and I made as we planned our destination wedding in Playa del Carmen. Jaimi was instrumental in the resort selection process. She was ever so patient with us as we balanced... Read More amenities with cost to help find a 'happy medium' option of a resort location. We knew cost (both of out of country travel and resort lodging) would be a defining point for many guests. She helped us select the perfect resort for our event (Playacar Palace). Our 80+ guests loved the resort. Beyond the resort selection, Jaimi's support through the 18+ month long planning process was impeccable. She helped us navigate every twist and turn of the planning. We never waited more than 2 hours for an email reply (even MONTHS before the event!). She maintains key relationships in the Riviera Maya and is able to navigate all situations. I would highly advise having Jaimi on your side to guide the destination wedding process. We literally had the best day(s) of our lives. Our guests loved working with her, and this was important, as it alleviated a lot of unnecessary burden on us. Everyone loved Jaimi. We can not say enough good things about her. Truly, a top notch experience!

Beach Bum Vacations has been absolutely amazing to work with. I happened to find them in a review when my fiance and I were investigation destination wedding locations. We were really struggling and starting to get frustrated, until I contacted Beach Bum. Beach Bum Lisa... Read More contacted me right away, and I felt like I had an instant connection with her. She is fun, upbeat, knowledgeable, and felt that she is 100% invested us and our wedding day. The best part is, is that we changed our original direction with her from Mexico/Caribbean, to Europe, and she was right on board. Constant communication between us and the resort to make sure we have everything we want. Lisa even made an adorable website with us to send to our guests for all of the booking information. So far, Beach Bum Lisa has helped us and all of our guests with booking our accommodation, and has even helped the guests with planning and booking add-on trips who want to explore more of Europe! One of my guests called me immediately after booking with Lisa and raved about how helpful and friendly she was. She actually said, I feel like she could be my friend! That is the kind of people that work at Beach Bum. We couldn't be more happy with our experience with Beach Bum and highly recommend anyone who is planning a destination wedding to use their services. Bonus...No services fees for you or your guests! :) I'm sure all of the Beach Bummers (not sure if that is what their official name is) are awesome, but hopefully you get Lisa to help you with all of your planning!

Thanks to Lisa zwissler from beach bum vacations, we had an incredible trip! We set a budget, wants / needs for our ideal vacation, and Lisa had us booked in no time at all. The whole booking experience with beach bum was easy, seamless, and a lot less daunting than trying to do... Read More it on my own. Also, Little did I know, Lisa was even helping my now fiancé plan the perfect proposal!! If that's not personalized service, I don't know what is! We stayed at the chic by royalton resort. The resort itself was very new, but still very kept, clean, and full of employees who were excited to take care of your every need. The food was incredible, the weather was perfect everyday, and the drinks flowed non-stop ;) My only complaint would be the smart travel "concierge" reps pushing us into a time share presentation every single time we walked into our hotel building, they were really nice, but very pushy and annoying. We kept telling them we just wanted to enjoy our vacation, but finally caved and went because of the relentless pushing. Overall, we had an incredible experience, and I would highly encourage all of my friends to contact Lisa at Beach Bum for any and all Tavel needs, I know we sure will from here on out :)

Amazing time and wonderful service!

Lisa Zwissler from Beach Bum Vacations helped me setting up the whole trip!! We both had an AMAZING time!! I wanted to propose on this vacation on the beach. I built a sand castle and had my Gopro filming it. I told her I was doing a time lapse of my sandcastle. Then when i was... Read More finished had the ring with me and I came up to her while she was reading her book and said now that i have my castle I need my queen. Will you marry me? She said YES. The only thing i would complain about is that the resort had a thing called travel smart company. They had a concierge guy at the entrance of the each building who would kind of push it on you but they did give my girlfriend a free massage at the end of it and a dominican package for me which consisted of like a bottle of Rum, honey, white vanilla extract, cinnamon, and some coffee. We couldnt bring back because it was more than 3oz! lol So the one concern by reading some of the reviews were the food selections. The reviews i read said the food was average!! Not true!!! I eat at steakhouses like Ruth Chris and St Elmo so I am used to a good steak not like I am used to eating subpar food. I absolutely loved the food and service. We went to all the food options besides the culinary experience. The sushi was really good but only served for dinner. Lunch was good there too they had amazing halbut and crab cerviche. The insomnia cafe was good coffee. The buffet was good for breakfast every day and for lunch as well. We did the oxygen bar which was cool but had to pay 10$ for 10 min but also included a detox drink which was mixed up vegetables and juices I love it!! The Mini Grille wasnt that good. The hunter steakhouse, we got filets, ribeye, tuna carpachio, french onion soup and more! The moroccan dinner was really good too had lamb and tuna there. Service at the bars was great you could ask for premium or whatever you want. Half the people that work there were really enthusiastic but some were not as friendly. They did not ruin the experience just found out which bar tenders to get drinks from. They did have alot of different things to do like zip lining and the excursions. We heard good things about them but just wanted to relax this trip.
