Suite 450 Westmont, IL 60559

The Cocoa Island experience was

unparalleled. The food, the staff, the

location, the crystal-clear water,

everything contributed to making

Cocoa Island one of our best travel

experiences, period. One person in

particular stands out—on leaving the

property, one of our suitcases broke and

the general manager actually brought

out one of his own suitcases for our own

personal use, to be returned when we

got home. The gesture will always be

remembered and appreciated.

— An Andrew Harper Subscriber

Wolgan Valley was FABULOUS. The

vistas were dramatic, the activities

were fun and active for our entire

family, the food was wonderful, and

the service was exemplary. Having

an indoor/outdoor pool in our suite

allowed us to swim at any time in the

privacy of our own room! The nighttime

“safari” was a highlight, driving in an

open vehicle and viewing kangaroos

with little joeys in tow, wombats and

wallabies! Very glad Andrew Harper

helped bring us to this wonderful

hideaway resort.

601 Oakmont Lane,

Suite 450 Westmont, IL 60559

I would only say after many attempts

to find a truly special hideaway in

Mexico, Las Alamandas is it. We felt

as if we were visiting the beachfront

estate of a wealthy friend. World class.

— An Andrew Harper Subscriber

WOW. This hotel has it all—great food,

dramatic ocean views, fabulous rooms

and amazing staff who are so warm

and friendly! I would return again and

again and can recommend this hotel

to everyone. It is very romantic if you

are looking for a second honeymoon

or anniversary trip; but it’s family-

friendly too, with a kids’ pool, swimmable

beach and little pool lounge chairs for

children—too cute! They have thought

of everything. It’s really a unique and

beautiful (and safe!) destination.

We had a fabulous time with Seabourn!

Meals were truly exceptional—great

variety, superb quality and top-

drawer service. The entertainment

was first-class. Shore excursions

were well-organized and well-

explained beforehand. As always, the

crowd consisted of interesting and

friendly people willing to share space

and thoughts—a welcoming club

atmosphere which is one of the great

benefits of a small ship. The onboard

credit was greatly appreciated!.

Four Seasons Resort Costa Rica at PapagayoPENINSULA PAPAGAYO, COSTA RICA Recommended since 2004.

Seabourn CruisesWORLDWIDE

Suite 450 Westmont, IL 60559

Having just been renovated, we were

lucky enough to be the first guests to

enjoy the upgrades at Four Seasons

Costa Rica! With an abundance of

activities—nature trails, golf, paddle-

boarding, surfing, whale-watching—it

was the perfect resort for our annual

family vacation. Our group of nine,

ranging from 8 to 70 years old,

had the freedom to enjoy activities

individually and then come together

at dinner to share our experiences. The

Four Season’s service was outstanding.

We cannot wait to return!

601 Oakmont Lane,

Suite 450 Westmont, IL 60559

As a group of seven, we appreciated

the personal attention and group

arrangements for activities. Londolozi

is partnering with the Good Works

Foundation and we visited their school

in HazyView. That was a truly amazing

experience for all of our family, but

especially for our 9-year-old grandson.

Also, the ranger and tracker were

exceptional and we saw an abundance

of wildlife, about which they were both

extremely knowledgeable.

Suite 450 Westmont, IL 60559

Our favorite! We were pampered in

every sense of the word. The staff,

service and gourmet food were the best

I’ve encountered out of any lodge in

Africa. We especially enjoyed the varied

dining experiences: one in the wine

cellar and one outside on the patio

overlooking a wooded area—watching

game while dining! The owner is

possibly one of the most gracious you

will ever meet. It’s obvious why almost

all of the staff have been there since

the opening of the property.

#9, Top 20 Safari Lodges and Camps.

601 Oakmont Lane,

Suite 450 Westmont, IL 60559

We saw the most game at Chief’s Camp

during our two week safari. We think

this area has the best game viewing

in Africa. Our guide Sky, who we

nicknamed “Mr. Leopard a day!”, was

an extraordinary tracker with great

bushcraft, and we learned so much

from him about the game and birds.

We also got to know the chef, who

kindly shared more than a dozen of

his unique recipes with us. With the

outstanding staff and game viewing,

we would definitely return.
