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.

TRIP REPORT – Cambodia and Thailand

I know they say that you shouldn't revisit your favourite places, they never live up to the memories. Here I'd built a trip around three return visits and still I was quietly confident that things wouldn't just turn out ok... they would turn out spectacularly

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

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 : 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?

REVIEW – Air Canada : Business Class – Vancouver to London LHR (B789)

The overall experience was absolutely one of the best that I've ever had in business class. I had no real expectations going into this and came away with a real fondness for AC. If this is the service standard that they are able to consistently deliver, they have to be one of the best airlines in North America.

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

Many carriers don't offer service on this level in First, let alone business class. There are people out there that refer to Qatar crews as robotic but this welcome seemed anything but and really set the scene for the wonderful flight that was to follow.
