I recently went on a bowls trip to Benidorm with Bovingdon Bowls Club, my thoughts are, the hotel was very nice, with clean rooms, food was varied & very nice, staff pleasant & helpful, transport was on time with cheerful drivers.


The clubs we played against were very welcoming, cheerful & competitive, I would like to thank Julie & Danny for a very enjoyable trip. I must also extend immense thanks to Andy & Debbie Smith for the help & organisation in making this a fantastic tour.

Many Thanks,

Real Bellavista Hotel – Albufeira – The Algarve 2019


“Thanks – went very well indeed. All the coach pick-ups were on time and helpful, the hotel was so good I was moved to write a letter to the management whilst there to thank them on behalf of everyone. As for the clubs, so friendly we had to drag ourselves away at times from conversations at the bars. Airports worked well, flights on time and no long queues, disabled transport helpful – really, we have no complaints whatsoever about the arrangements you made for us. Thank you.”

Grande Real Santa Eulalia – Albufeira – The Algarve 2019


HI Julie & Danny, we had a great holiday and bowling tour.  Hotel was superb, weather was great, organisation of all the transport was excellent, reception at all the clubs was brilliant as usual and the bowling was even better.  We had the best time! The Grande Real Santa Eulalia Hotel was perfect in all respects, with the food being absolutely amazing every meal – choice and flavours were good each night and breakfast.  Loved the beach being so close and plenty of room around the pool.  The staff were attentive and very well trained. Thanks for your great organisation which allowed me to run this holiday tour smoothly.”

Hi Julie and Danny, yes we had a great holiday and the weather was brilliant. Your organising was spot on, the coaches were always on time and drivers very friendly. The hotel was very clean and staff helpful you could not fault the food for selection or quantity. Albufeira was a great place to spend a few hours and the shuttle bus was perfect. l don’t think we would hesitate in booking again, so thank you both for your hard work.”

Dear Julie and Danny, sorry for the late response to your email but it has been finals weekend and quite a few of us were involved. Thank you very much for all of your help. Every think went very smoothly. We did not win the competition, but all had some good fun.”

Real Bellavista Hotel – Albufeira – The Algarve 2018


Hi Julie and Dan, well what can I say other than thank you. We returned yesterday from a truly successful bowls trip and we have all loved every minute of it. The welcome from all the bowls clubs we played was fantastic and all transfers to and from games and airports exemplary. So much so that all 10 of us would like to go again next year, and hopefully a few more once we have told everyone about it. Thank you again for helping me with my first tour booking”

Best Wishes and many kind regards

Edinburgh Ladies, Edinburgh

Roc Lago Rojo Hotel – Torremolinos – Costa Del Sol 2018


I think the holiday went well. We enjoyed the matches starting after the first weekend.  Holiday felt more important than the bowling. Apart from the first day we were urged to play triples but we agreed to make it fewer ends.  So we must have looked trustworthy as we were allowed to play with absent members’ bowls! The situation of the hotel was excellent and a keypad back gate led us straight to shops, cafes and promenade. As you are aware our group is made up of ladies from five clubs so less easy to get feed-back.”

“I would like to thank you for all that you did to make our bowls holiday as good as it turned out to be, we had a great time. Now for the hotel everyone felt it was a very good hotel, clean and staff very friendly. Thanks again our overall experience was fantastic and going by the feedback from the others we might be looking to do it again but maybe not next year but year after.”

Thorngate BC, Hampshire

Real Bellavista Hotel – Albufeira – The Algarve 2017


“Thank you for welcoming us home after an excellent trip to Portugal. The arrangements you made for us were great and the Real Bellavista lived up to its expectations. The accommodation was excellent and all of our party commented upon the large size of each room. In addition, the selection of food available for each meal was great and catered for all tastes. Transport to and from Faro airport was well organised and the drivers were very helpful. Overall we are more than pleased with our first all inclusive trip to Portugal and everyone keeps asking me when am I going to organise another one especially as I have told them about Cyprus and Spain, as well as Portugal – so watch this space. Thank you again for all the organising you and Dan have done for us.”


Jim Barry

“All the feedback from our members was very positive. The hotel was faultless with very good, attentive staff. All of the clubs we visited were very friendly and cooperative, as were the other visiting clubs. Best wishes to both you and Danny, will be in touch again in the future.”

Flamingo Beach Hotel – Benidorm – Costa Blanca 2016


“Everything went according to plan with no hiccups at all. The flights, hotel, food and transfers to the bowls clubs was spot on, the weather was also very kind to us. The group wish me thank you and your organisation for all the help you gave us which impressed us all, we will have no hesitation in calling for your services again for next year and to recommend your service to other local bowls clubs.”


Malcolm Winn

Totland Bay BC, Isle of Wight

Real Bellavista Hotel – Albufeira – The Algarve 2016


Hi Danny & Julie, everything ran so smoothly, and to time, that the overall opinion about the trip was that it was a resounding success. I couldn`t be happier with the very high level of service you offered and provided; from very first contact all the way through to the final stages and the late additions to the party. The hotel had everything we could have wished for; the staff were very friendly and helpful; the food was excellent.”

Transport throughout was efficient, always on time, and usually in new air-conditioned coaches so we always had plenty of room. The transfers to and from Faro airport were also very good indeed. They were there waiting for us on arrival and got us back to the airport in good time on the return trip. Well done and thank you very much. We`ll remember this trip for a long, long time.

Aguamarina Apartments – Golf Del Sur – Tenerife 2016


“We had a great bowling themed holiday and made good use of the fortnight. The Aguamarina Apartments were ideal for us, so handy for the Winter Gardens Bowling Club where we made many friends. In addition to the pairs tournament we participated in “Rollup” competitions and booked a rink for ourselves most mornings at 9am when we had triples friendlies. The pre-booked island tour was excellent. Thank you both for all the assistance with this excellent holiday”
