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 – Qantas : First Class – London LHR to Dubai (A380)

Qantas has one of my favourite First Class products in the world. I had been looking forward to stepping onto one of their A380s again for quite some time. Nothing beats that feeling of finally being welcomed aboard and taking your seat in a cabin you've been dreaming about for months on end.

REVIEW – Emirates Lounge : First and Business Class, London (LHR – Terminal 3)

The refurbishment of this lounge has been a great success. The transformation is truly remarkable. What was previously a laughably dated looking lounge has become an elegant, well lit and classy venue. The food remains as good as it always was and for a business class passenger the drinks offered are well above average. Emirates treats its business class passengers very well indeed.

TRIP REPORT – A luxurious long weekend in Abu Dhabi

The UAE is perfectly positioned for a UK traveller. You can hop on an overnight flight from London at around 9pm on Thursday and will arrive in Dubai or Abu Dhabi at 7am on Friday morning. Friday is when the UAE really parties, with most hotels laying on extremely lavish brunch buffets, featuring all manner of seafood, foie gras, freshly baked cakes and free flowing champagne. I always like to make Friday my arrival day for that reason.

Best Rate Guarantee: How I booked the St Regis Florence for €280 per night including breakfast!

Unlike Hyatt and IHG who are notorious for playing games with their best rate guarantees (i.e. thay weasel their way out of the guarantee any way they can and hope to leave you with an expensive, non-refundable reservation in the process), SPG is very fair indeed.
