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 РSala VIP Miró lounge РBarcelona (BCN T1)

I would consider this as more of a refuelling station than a proper place to spend any length of time. For my purposes on this particular trip, that suited me just fine. I was more than happy to head to the gate a few minutes before the boarding time, ready to experience 11 hours in First Class with my favourite airline!

REVIEW – Tryp Barcelona Airport Hotel

Unfortunately, this is quite possibly the best airport hotel option in Barcelona but honestly if another one or two stars fell off the sign at the front, I don't think anybody would raise an eyebrow...

TRIP REPORT РD.O.M. and Dom with my Dad. AKA Sao Paulo Seventieth Silliness 

Ever since I first got involved in the world of miles and points I've done whatever I could do get my friends and family involved too. It's all well and good travelling everywhere in First Class but as with all of life's great experiences, travel is a pursuit best shared. There's something truly wonderful about being able to go on these rarified, extravagant adventures with other people, especially if those people thought they'd never live to see the day that they set foot in the pointy end of a plane.

REVIEW: A Trip to Islay House with Stratajet

When one of my friends casually mentioned in the pub that his older brother was the CEO of a private jet company, I knew this was an opportunity too good to pass up...

Conrad Maldives Seaplane Lounge Jarvis Marcos MLE

REVIEW – Conrad Maldives : Seaplane Lounge MLE [Morning]

We were first off the plane - as were our bags - so we found ourselves in a totally empty customs and immigration hall. After a quick check of our passport and putting all of our bags through a scanner (because the resorts sure as hell don't want you bringing your own booze when they can charge you $30++ for a glass of wine ;) ), we were out in the warm breeze of the arrivals area.

REVIEW – Cathay Pacific : The Bridge Business Class Lounge, HKG

Having since visited the newly refurbished Pier Business class lounge, this comes in a definite second. If you just need somewhere to grab something quick and you're pressed for time, this lounge is great. If you want to spend hours really maximising your lounge time and making a day out of it, The Pier is the lounge for you.

REVIEW – Qantas First and Business Class Lounge, HKG

If you are short on time and have to stay near the low numbered gates, the QF lounge is the place to be. The food, drink and service are, on the whole, much better than the CX Wing lounge - that includes the Wing's First Class section.
