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 – Radisson Blu Zurich Airport : Business Class Room

The main service was chaotic, no doubt about it.  However, the dine on demand really came into its own when I wanted to set my own schedule and here, much like at the bar, the service was sincere, friendly and professional.

REVIEW – Qatar Al Safwa First Class Lounge – Doha

The lounge is so quiet, cavernous and awe inspiring that it doesn't feel like a space in which to kick back and have fun. If you're expecting the Virgin Clubhouse you'll be disappointed. It is however one of the most striking and interior spaces I've ever spent time in. The calm and tranquility is a world away from the airport terminal below

As I stepped on board my jaw nearly hit the floor. This did not look like any cabin I had ever seen before. It looked more like the shuttle used by the higher orders of an alien society, commuting between their galactic empires:

REVIEW – Qatar Airways : First Class – Doha to Bangkok (A380)

I handed over our boarding passes and sure enough the light on the scanner flashed red and let out its 'magic beep'. "Is that a good beep?", I asked. "Only if you like being upgraded to First Class, sir."

Jarvis Marcos - Qatar Airways Dreamliner

REVIEW – Qatar Airways : Business Class – Doha to Stockholm (B787)

Overall another great flight, if anything this was even better than my first QR J experience at the beginning of the trip. The service was extremely attentive, every dish I tasted was superb and every item of F&B which I ordered was in stock whenever I ordered. More than anything, flying QR J imbues you with a feeling of freedom. You can do what you want, when you want and are never beholden to the whims and desires of other pax or the cabin crew. Leave your seat when you want, eat when you want, sleep when you want. How many airlines can claim likewise?
