Review: Old Lahaina Luau (Maui, Hawaii)

I really couldn’t think of a better way to top off a weeklong trip on the beautiful island of Maui, than to attend the Old Lahaina Luau. With the beautiful ocean as your backdrop, this traditional Luau will provide an evening of entertainment which focuses specifically on Hawaiian dances (if you want to see a ...

Hotel Review: Blux 901, Medellin (Colombia)

“Great place to call home while in Medellin” Stayed at the Blux 901 luxury rental apartment for 8 days in November 2012 and would like to state how impressed I was by the overall experience.

Hotel Review: Arlington Place, Bogota (Colombia)

Their attention to detail really sets them ...

Hotel Review: Be Live Hamaca Beach Resort, Boca Chica (DR)

“For the budget-minded A.I. experience” One thing I realized during my stay was that your experience can vary greatly based on the room you are provided. I stayed on the 4th fl in a “garden view” room and found it to have very basic décor, with no lock on the safe, rust in the tub, ...
