We chose to spend our honeymoon at the Fairmont Southampton. Eugen helped to make this possible with his planning and advice given. Many may choose to rely on TripAdvisor, read Fodors or Frommers, or book online, but we think on the basis of all things being equal, the kind of impartial advice given from a certified travel agent - moreover an experienced and well-travelled one like how we had with Eugen, makes the informed decision that much more meaningful and worth it when you arrive to your destination and everything is as was explained and expected. You can find that kind of value out of a book or a site. But you can find it with Eugen.
As for the trip itself, the Fairmont Southampton did not disappoint with its fantastic private beach right next to Horseshoe Bay (you really pay for this value). Great views from our room with Lighthouse nearby, great service befitting the Fairmont brand, and great dining especially at the Waterlot Inn. What makes it extra convenient are the pickup/dropoff to airport included, and the complimentary ferry service to Hamilton. Great memories, and a great time thanks to Eugen. Book with him and find out for yourself!
Hi there fellow travelers!
My bf and I recently booked our very first vacation through Manta Ray Travel. I would like to start with a rating of the agency.
As a first time traveler we had tons of questions, a few too many now that I look back lol. Manta Ray Travel was so pleasant when responding to all our questions. They were quick to respond, knowledgeable of places and resorts, and so lovely to do business with! All we had to do was narrow down where we wanted to go and provided a few highlights of things we were looking for out of our vacation. Manta Ray Travel was quick to provide a list with options of choices, pictures and websites of different places and resorts, and included the best excursions to go with. The work was all done and all we had to do was choose where and what resort! We ended up booking the catamaran which is a total must do!! (Will rate the excursion below in the resort review). They were able to book us on a nice and early flight which is what we wanted. Great affordable pricing and service with a smile!! Totally an 11 out of 10 if that′s possible.
Now to rate the resort. We stayed at the Royalton Hicacos Resort and spa in Veradero Cuba. Upon getting to the airport in Veradero the buses were nicely organized, cold beers available for purchase, great cuban locals and sunshine. Upon arrival to the resort you′re greeted with a nice cold towelette and sparkling wine. Again, service was quick and efficient. Check in for us wasn′t until 4pm but we were in our rooms by 12 pm! Staff was great and friendly, and so helpful!! The resort was beautiful!! Many restaurants to choose from (Italian, Caribbean, Seafood, Tex Mex, etc) plus the a la carte buffet. The a la carte food had a huge variety of all sorts of food and desserts. The restaurants were delicious, especially the steak at the seafood restaurant. So yummy! The pools were clean and refreshing, lots of lounge chairs to choose from. Great swim to bar with friendly staff who always remember everyone′s names and greet them every time you walk by or swim up for a drink. The entertainment was great with new shows every night.
They had dancing lessons, shooting ranges, competitions, a mini fashion show to showcase all the great clothes they had for sale. The beach was spectacular!! Great beach restaurant right by the beach.
The catamaran was AMAZING!! by far the best part if our vacation. You start off at the Marina where you get on the boat. Then you make your way to do snorkeling in the ocean. After that you stop off at Cayo Blanco and you have dinner on the beach and have a chance to relax on the Beach before the boat takes off again. After Cayo Blanco you get to see the dolphins and have a meet and greet. We had the chance to get in the water wth dolphins, touch and interact with them and then have our picture taken!! If you offer them a nice tip they will also let you swim with the dolphins! ! The experience was soooooooo amazing.
Overall it was the best vacation ever. I wish I was still there. All in all I would totally recommend this resort as well as this agency, 100%!! GREAT JOB MANTA RAY TRAVEL! ! I will for sure be using them going forward for all my booking needs.
I recently booked a vacation with Manta Ray Travel to St James Club in Antigua. Eugen made planning this trip so easy. From numerous recommendations on potentials destinations to making my final plans, Eugen had insightful advice. St James Club was a wonderful choice. The hotel was beautiful. Eugen arranged for a personal driver to take my family on a private tour of the island. I can′t wait to go back to Antigua.
Right before I left on my vacation, I broke my leg. Even with this unexpected accident, Eugen made special arrangements with both the airline and the hotel that I was still able to go on the vacation and have a wonderful time. If you are looking for a travel agent who really cares about your experience, I would strongly recommend Manta Ray Travel. I will definitely be calling Eugen again when I book my next vacation.

Riu Palace Macao in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
Riu Palace Macao in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
Recently booked a vacation through Manta Ray Travel in Punta Cana at the Riu Palace Macao and had a great experience thanks to Manta Ray Travel and Eugen! Eugen requested a particular room with an amazing view and king size bed, which we got, as well as a personal welcome note from the hotel and Manta Ray Travel. The champagne on ice and fresh fruit in our room upon arrival was a great touch as well! I′d highly recommend Manta Ray Travel to anyone looking to book a hassle-free vacation. I found Eugen to be extremely prompt and well organized in getting me all the necessary documents prior to my trip. Thanks again Manta Ray Travel for a great vacation!
I had an excellent experience with Manta Ray Travel. Not only were they very professional, efficient and helpful but they were able to meet my tight deadlines and work around my schedule. I recommend this agency to friends and family.
