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

viagra prices cvs 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 – Air Canada : Business Class – Vancouver to London LHR (B789)

The overall experience was absolutely one of the best that I've ever had in business class. I had no real expectations going into this and came away with a real fondness for AC. If this is the service standard that they are able to consistently deliver, they have to be one of the best airlines in North America.

REVIEW – Plaza Premium Lounge, Vancouver (YVR – International Terminal)

 This lounge is a clear improvement over the AC Maple Leaf lounge; it is far more elegantly furnished, has better food options and better coffee. Still, in an international context this is by no means a competitive facility. This is not a scratch on the facilities of HKG, TPE and NRT that many of this lounge's guests will be accustomed to.

REVIEW – Air Canada Maple Leaf Lounge, Vancouver (YVR)

Visiting this lounge made me feel dirty. I got in, took some pictures and left. The airport terminal is immeasurably more pleasant than this deplorable den of despair.

REVIEW – Air Canada : Business Class – Los Angeles to Vancouver (A320)

The seat was large and comfortable and featured both power and entertainment. The crew were polite, friendly and efficient (if a little lacking in oenoligical knowledge). The food was plentiful, healthy and delicious with a decent selection of drinks to accompany it.   If BA Club Europe was anything like this I wouldn't hesitate to pay the premium every time I fly!

TRIP REPORT – First Class Apartments to the Maldives

This may well be the most insanely luxurious trip I have ever taken, using miles and points. From the moment that I first laid eyes on the press release for Etihad's apartments, I knew that I would have to find a way to try this product as soon as humanly possible. The idea of having a bed, armchair, fridge, lamp, widescreen TV, wardrobe and vanity area for every passenger in First Class was just unimaginably amazing. I had a horrible feeling that Etihad would limit availability or crank up the price to some ridiculous level (like Singapore did when they first introduced suites to the market), however none of that turned out to be the case.

Conrad Koh Samui - Jarvis Marcos

REVIEW – Conrad Koh Samui (Second visit)

It is not often that I return to the same hotel on multiple occasions; the world is a large place and there are so many new experiences out there that I always feel like a bit of a sucker when I make a return visit. Sometimes though you find a place that ticks so many boxes, a place that you keep thinking about on those drizzly days in the office, a place that is such unbelievably good value that you keep yearning to return and cannot justify the risk of exploring an alternative.

Jarvis Marcos - Conrad Bangkok Pool

REVIEW – Conrad Bangkok : King Executive Room

Although one of my favourite hotels in the the world is the Sofitel So Bangkok, I've not been back since my first visit. The problem is that there are just too many luxury hotels to try in Bangkok and quite often they can be unbelievably cheap.

REVIEW – Hilton Helsinki Airport (Executive Room)

I arrived a little after midnight and walked the ten minutes or so from the HEL airport terminal to the hotel. The walk is mostly covered […]
