Hello Ilya,Thank you for all your efforts and assistance in organizing our trip to Mexico! RIU Yucatan is a great hotel, our stay was very much enjoyable, everything was up to our expectations - the hotel rooms, the service and the food. I would like to mention that we appreciated the hotel being in walking distance from the town - we took several walks there by the beach and by the walking path. On the other hand, we kept comparing this hotel to the other one we've stayed on our prior trip - Occidental Xcaret Grand Flamingo. It had wonderfully landscaped park on its territory with historic archaeological sites, and we really loved it. With that, RIU Yucatan seemed a bit crowded, but it's just a compliment to the hotel.
"Hi ! I and my husband spend last vacation in Jamaica , Riu Palace Montego Bay ! we purchased our travel package very easy with Ilya's help ! he recommended and it was the best vacation ! Excellent sea , beaches , fun , fun !! Thank you Ilya !!!"
"Bahai Principe Punta Cana - Dec 2014.
The travel agent experience was outstanding - everything was done timely and efficiently, including transfers to and from hotel, trip insurance and even the map of the hotel was sent promptly for my review.
Hotel is very big, but the transportation system works very well and usually there is no more then a couple minutes of wait time. The hotel is very good for families w small children. There is a water park on site and every night entertainment geared toward small kids.
Service was very good, everything was clean. Food was average, a la carte restaurants were great except the Japanese. Beech had a lot of sewed but overall was very nice.
Would definitely recommend the hotel".
"We've recently returned from a wonderful Jamaican trip to Riu Tropical Bay in Negril, which was planned and purchased thru Gullible Travelers. It was already 3rd or 4th time we've used Ilya's help to book our vacation and every time the quality of his service was top-notch - fast, accurate with documentation, very creative in terms of finding carriers/airlines (even for last-minute booking), very polite and super easy to do business with! We would highly recommend Gullible Travelers to anybody as the long-term partner for any vacation planning.
"We have booked several Apple Vacations with Gullible Travelers, and Ilya always finds the right resort for us. He is very easy to work with, and we have had enjoyable experiences in Mexico, Jamaica, and the Dominican Republic. We will definitely use him again."
"My husband & I want to say thanks to Ilya, our travel specialist, and Apple Vacations team for organizing our vacation to Dominican Republic on January 2015. We have been using Apple Vacations for many years & every time we travel we are happy with them. Transportation on time, food & entertainment are all excellent."
"Well overall it was a great place to relax. Weather was perfect , except one day it was rainy and gloomy. Also on the day of leaving and the forecast for the week ahead was rainy.
I really enjoyed the town of Puerto Vallarta. Very pretty, lots of stores and litte restaurants. I felt safe going to the town with public transportation.
As for the resort I think for the price it was okay. No issues with food and restaurants. Entertainment every day and night was nice to have. Clean and friendly staff.
The beach and the ocean water was different than what we are used to. The sand was a little darker and the water was not crystal clear, but again no issues with that. I guess it is personal preference if it bothers you that the sand and water are darker. Temperature of the water was colder compared to Riviera Maya but it understands because it is the Pacific Ocean.
I would definitely go back to Puerto Vallarta but probable to a different resort. RIU Jalisco was okay but I would like to stay somewhere more luxurious."
"We had a great trip to Orlando! I can highly recommend B Resort – very nice, good priced and super located. Thank you!"
"Ilya took care of our needs from begging to end. Every section of our trip was covered from not having to wait to be picked up from the airport, to sitting in luxury at the airport on our departure .
Everyone Ilya is connected with is first class. He does not suggest ways that are out of scope for your stay, he finds great places within your budget.
His follow through was amazing, and I am busy woman to hunt down. He is ABSOLUTELY fabulous.
THANK YOU ILYA!
"I've been booking out travel with Ilya for past 5 years. Always excellent service, personal approach and very competitive prices. This year we were in Dreams, LaRomana. Great place for families w kids. Beach is comparable to the finest beaches of Aruba and St. Martin. No reservations required to any of the restaurants, no "all inclusive" bracelets to wear and no worries about cards to get the towels, you will get them anyway... We would definitely consider booking same place next year w. Gullible Travel team"
My wife and I recently had our vacation at the Bahia Principe Akumal resort in Cancun, Mexico. We absolutely loved everything about our experience. The service was impeccable; the beach was always very clean; the food was great. Also, we had access to other resorts in the area, which was a nice addition. We've been spending our vacation at resorts in Mexico and the Dominican Republic for the past 12 years, and this one has been the best one so far. We are grateful to Ilya Davydov - Founder & CEO Gullible Travelers and Nataliya Horyn - Travel Agent Specialist Gullible Travelers for finding this wonderful option for us.
