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!

Qatar Airways : Business Class – Oslo OSL to Doha DOH (B787)

I was so happy to be able to share this experience with my Dad. I know how much he appreciates great wine and food and was delighted to be able to just hang out and enjoy his company on such a lengthy daytime flight. I did have minor reservations going into this, a fear that SQ would deliver a second rate experience and the crews would be disinterested, given that the route was due to be scrapped.

TRIP REPORT – The time I flew round trip to Sydney for £1080 in business class

In addition to having one of the best business class products in the sky, Qatar Airways frequently offers some superb airfares between Europe and Asia Pacific. As a promo for the launch of their service to Sydney, Qatar greatly discounted what has long been one of the most expensive routes in the world.

REVIEW – Sala VIP LATAM – Sao Paulo (GRU T3)

I love the design, the abundance of natural light and the huge selection of food. The fact that they have cans of soda and small bottles that you can take away is great too. Overall this lounge reminded me a lot of the Qantas lounge in Hong Kong and that is a very good thing. After experiencing this lounge I am now really looking forward to trying out LATAM's on board service!

REVIEW – D.O.M. Restaurant, Sao Paulo

n Brazil, chef Alex Atala is a man who needs no introduction. Easily the country's most famous chef and a bonafide national celebrity. For those of us located in other parts of the globe, he made a huge splash as the protagonist of a truly mesmerising episode of Netflix's critically acclaimed Chef's Table.

REVIEW – Intercontinental Bali (Singaraja Room)

The Intercontinental is a perfect place to stop for one night if you arrive late or are leaving early from the airport. Even if you only have one night in Bali, as a stopover, you would be able to immediately unwind with dinner in one of the seafront restaurants in Jimbaran followed by a walk along the beach and cocktails at the Sunset Bar and Grill.

REVIEW – Intercontinental Hong Kong (Harbour View Room)

If you are staying here, don't leave it to chance, pay for the view, it is totally worth it. However, my other comments still hold, if you want something more modern and luxurious go with the Ritz or The Upper House. If you want to be able to walk straight out of your front door and into the action, stay at the Mandarin. When it comes to getting value for money though, a points redemption with a cash upgrade at the IC is hard to argue with.

REVIEW – Hotel Indigo Helsinki

My stay at the Hotel Indigo Helsinki exceeded my expectations. The hotel felt very new and cool, without having the weird try hard feel of some Ws, I also love how small and cosy it felt. Truly a boutique feel, rather than the bland enormity of a regular chain stay. The staff were friendly, proactive and very helpful indeed.

REVIEW – Intercontinental Hong Kong (Deluxe Room)

I felt like a new man after a couple of drinks, a decent meal and a great sleep on CX F. Upon disembarking from the Airport […]

REVIEW – ANA Crowne Plaza Kyoto (Castle View Twin Room)

Our stay at the ANA Kyoto was really good. For the price, the place is unbeatable. You have great service, really comfortable beds, Kyoto castle on your doorstep, a really relaxing waterfall lobby and shuttles every 15 minutes directly to the train station. I definitely wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
