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 – Etihad First Class Lounge, Abu Dhabi (AUH – Terminal 3)

Back in 2016, when I first visited this lounge, Etihad was at its apex. Apartments were still a very new product and the lounge had only been open for a couple of months. The glow of invincibility surrounding this company was palpable, everybody wanted a piece of them. The dining experience we had here would easily have cost upwards of £250 per person in a top London restaurant and would have been worth every penny!

REVIEW – Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi : Terrace Suite

The Park Hyatt is located on a prime stretch of white sand, alongside the St Regis, on Saadiyat Island. It is only 30 minutes from AUH or around 80 minutes from DXB airport. Although Abu Dhabi is a thriving metropolis, the beachfront area is a lot more sparse than Dubai and approaching the hotel it felt as if we were miles away from the nearest city. Quite a different feeling to the densely packed area of resorts, clustered around The Palm.

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.

REVIEW – Hyatt Regency Long Beach : Harbor Suite

For $152 this hotel was an absolute steal. The gym was fantastic, the decor throughout was very fresh and modern and the staff were all extremely friendly and accommodating. I really liked the club lounge breakfast and am sure that it would be a great place to grab a drink in the evening too.   If you're staying in Long Beach this hotel is very hard to argue with!

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.

Park Hyatt Siem Reap - Pool

REVIEW – Park Hyatt Siem Reap (Park Executive Suite)

The Park Hyatt is located on a busy intersection right in the middle of town, our drive there took around 20 minutes from the airport and traffic was not an issue whatsoever. I prefer this location to the resorts outside of town, I'd rather have all of the local shops and restaurants within a couple of minutes walk and miss out on being ten minutes closer to the temples by car.
