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.

Beach Bum Carey (Driscoll) helped my husband and I book a relaxing, week long honeymoon at Secrets Playa Mujeres. It was a wonderful week and she made the process SO easy for us. We told her what we were hoping our vacation would be like (relaxing, all inclusive, a little... Read More adventure) and what our budget was and she made it all happen.

I discovered Beach Bum Vacations travel agency via research on Reddit. We struck gold with that discovery!! The website allows you to pick an agent or they'll choose one for you. After reviewing a bunch of YouTube videos of each agent introducing themselves, we chose Carey... Read More Driscoll. Again, we struck gold x1000! Carey is the absolute BEST at what she does. She takes care of EVERYTHING and I can't stress it enough. She recommended Secrets Resort (we never heard of it.). She works with the resort at all times on your behalf. She'll get your plane tickets if you opt for it too. There was not one request we had that Carey said she couldn't do. I don't know when the woman sleeps because she always was on top of our emails (and we sent a LOT of them). She answered the easy questions, the tough questions, and the inane questions always with a cheerful attitude no matter how many times we bugged her! And above all else, Carey was there for us when Hurricane Matthew was knocking down our door. She put our safety above all else and urged us to cut the honeymoon short so we could be safe. Instead of us panicking and scrambling for flight changes, Carey handled all that for us (and all of our guests) at the same time and ensured everyone got off the island before the Hurricane got too close and the airport closed. Carey is a national treasure as far as I'm concerned and we'll be exclusively using her for all our travel needs going forward. I'm telling you....use this FREE service. You won't regret it and it makes the planning so stress-free that my wife and I really got to enjoy the planning phases instead of worrying about it like most other couples we know.

She patiently went back and forth as we couldn't make up our mind where to host our wedding :) She was the BIGGEST help and such an awesome person to work with. We selected the Hard Rock Punta Cana as our place — and it was better than a dream. For a bride planning a destination wedding, I was never stressed or worried and knew at all times that my wedding and guests were in great hands. She even arranged a private limo to pick us up from the airport where a cold bottle of champagne and roses welcomed my fiancé and I to the beautiful Dominican Republic. Amy even checked in with us when we were on our trip to make sure we had everything set and were enjoying ourselves—and this was after her job was over! She was so sweet and my husband thanks her for saving my sanity as my inner bridezilla never surfaced, all thanks to Amy! Olga was our onsite wedding coordinator, and she was absolute perfection. She turned my pinterest photos and ideas into an even better reality than I could've imagined! I made a last minute decision to wear a floral crown at my wedding and she made it happen within 24 hours <3 But that was just the flowers—more importantly, she brought our dream wedding to life and it was truly an unforgettable celebration.
