Staff Travel Journals: Emma Smith

Faraway destinations are some of our most popular holidays, and they certainly keep our travel experts busy. We sell a lot of them, not only because our travel specialists are good at their job, but because we make sure they have regular opportunities to go on educational trips where they experience the product themselves.

Emma from Hays Travel Torquay recently returned from her educational to Jamaica with Sandals. She spent seven days visiting different properties, staying in different room categories, for the full range of Sandals luxury.

She said: “It was my first stay in Jamaica, but most definitely will not be my last. I absolutely loved it. The resorts, the people, and the food! Heaven!

“We visited Montego Bay, Ocho Rios, Negril and South Coast. Sandals and Beaches Resorts hosted show rounds and private dinning opportunities. We took a Catamaran around the coast of Ocho Rios and watched the sun set, then made sure we ate in different venues every night.

“Our room allocations were of each room category so that we were able to experience the full range. This has proven invaluable as the knowledge I have gained from this trip has already started to pay dividends.

“I have presented back to my team and have created a blog on my personal Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages to show my friends and followers how privileged I have been to visit these great hotels.”
