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 – Etihad First Class Lounge, Abu Dhabi (AUH – Terminal 3)

Back in 2016, when I first visited this lounge, Etihad was at its apex. Apartments were still a very new product and the lounge had only been open for a couple of months. The glow of invincibility surrounding this company was palpable, everybody wanted a piece of them. The dining experience we had here would easily have cost upwards of £250 per person in a top London restaurant and would have been worth every penny!

REVIEW – Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi : Terrace Suite

The Park Hyatt is located on a prime stretch of white sand, alongside the St Regis, on Saadiyat Island. It is only 30 minutes from AUH or around 80 minutes from DXB airport. Although Abu Dhabi is a thriving metropolis, the beachfront area is a lot more sparse than Dubai and approaching the hotel it felt as if we were miles away from the nearest city. Quite a different feeling to the densely packed area of resorts, clustered around The Palm.

REVIEW – Qantas : First Class – London LHR to Dubai (A380)

Qantas has one of my favourite First Class products in the world. I had been looking forward to stepping onto one of their A380s again for quite some time. Nothing beats that feeling of finally being welcomed aboard and taking your seat in a cabin you've been dreaming about for months on end.

REVIEW – Emirates Lounge : First and Business Class, London (LHR – Terminal 3)

The refurbishment of this lounge has been a great success. The transformation is truly remarkable. What was previously a laughably dated looking lounge has become an elegant, well lit and classy venue. The food remains as good as it always was and for a business class passenger the drinks offered are well above average. Emirates treats its business class passengers very well indeed.

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 – Qantas Lounge: Business and First Class, LHR T3

Perhaps I went into this with my hopes set too high but I really don't feel that this lounge is anywhere near the level of Cathay's Business lounge next door, let alone the First Class section. The Qantas decor isn't as luxurious, the food is not as good, there is a lack of natural light, runway views and power sockets and if you don't like gin, the drinks selection is far more limited.

REVIEW – Etihad Airways : Premium Lounge, AUH T3

Upon making our way to the chaotic reception desks it became immediately obvious why. The place was absolutely overrun with people. If you're looking for an oasis of tranquility, this is not your place. I did my best to snap pictures where I could but there were so many people absolutely everywhere that it was quite hard to do so without featuring strangers looking straight down my lens.
