Welcome to JarvisMarcos.com, a thorough and extensive database of my travel reviews.

I fly over 100,000 miles per year in First and Business class cabins and review every new product that I try. Similarly, I review almost every luxury hotel and airport lounge that I set foot in

I book the majority of my travel using sales, promotions and a variety of other tricks - often leveraging the power of hotel points and airline miles. If I use a special technique of any kind to book a travel experience, I'll mention it in the review.

This means that hopefully you'll have all the tools you need to book your own amazing trips too!

REVIEW – JW Marriott Marquis Miami : Larger Bay View Room

The JW Marriott Marquis is a 5* hotel but I think you'd struggle to make a case for it being a luxury hotel. For the price we paid I feel like we got value for money, however I would not have been happy if we'd been paying $500+ per night.

REVIEW – British Airways : First Class – London to Miami (A380)

Realistically this might be a Top 10 First Class product but in order to crack the Top 3 BA would have to make some serious changes. Of course, this would probably come at a higher cost, with less opportunities to redeem miles for the experience. BA's A380 First Class offers an experience truly worthy of the name. It is very pleasant, relaxing and comfortable. However BA falls short of being truly spectacular. Given what other airlines are doing with their flagship products these days, it seems a shame that a once great airline isn't aiming to beat the world.

REVIEW – Hyatt Regency London The Churchill : Regency Suite w. Balcony

The Churchill is a very well located hotel which manages to be within a two minute walk of some of London's busiest shopping and dining streets, whilst retaining an air of calm and tranquility overlooking the Portman Square Park. The staff on the club level were universally superb, everybody seemed to be happy to work there and it results in a remarkably pleasant experience. The club lounge itself was a quiet and elegant place to relax and offered a wide variety of high quality food and drink.

REVIEW – Etihad Airways : Business Class – Abu Dhabi to London (A380)

After an absolutely spectacular outbound flight in the First Class Apartments I was really curious to see how the business class product would pan out. Given that I would be heading straight to the office from this flight, my priorities were a little different than on the outbound. Basically I just wanted to get to sleep in comfort and enjoy some privacy and quiet. I wasn't looking for tons of attention and I was already stuffed from the food at the lounge and on the flight from MLE.

REVIEW – DNATA Lounge, Singapore Changi T1

    Being in Terminal 1 of Singapore Changi airport leaves you with the distinct feeling of being in the ‘B team’. Whilst SQ’s high ceilings […]

REVIEW – British Airways : Club World Business Class – London Heathrow to Singapore (A380)

Having luxuriated in the sheer opulence of the Singapore Airlines cabin on this route, I would gladly pay 2k+ to fly to Singapore with them. The memory of each flight with SQ is a delight that lasts a lifetime. Would I pay £2k to fly BA? No chance.

TRIP REPORT – Bali III : Return of the Bali

REVIEW – British Airways : Club World (Business Class) – London Heathrow to Newark (B772)

The cabin decor is drab, bland and uninspired. The only thing about the experience that feels premium are the cheese biscuits and the Fever Tree tonic. There is close to zero storage space around the seat. Aisle seats are completely exposed, no more private than economy. Middle seats can lead to bizarre and uncomfortable sharing scenarios, whilst window seats require stepping over other passengers in order to escape.
