“For a beach holiday, On The Beach really does exactly...”

Written on: 06/12/2007 by TimRitchie (7 reviews written)

For a beach holiday, On The Beach really does exactly what it says on the tin. Fantastic value for money - that is all you want for a beach holiday. Full range of hotels - all star ratings. I compared the price of my holiday to Malta with a number of other agents - I could not get close to the On The Beach price with any of them!… Read Full Review

The only thing that worried me was after sales I had a slight error with my paperwork emailed admin and they responded and sorted the issue within 48 hours which was great. The only downside is the sales team are quite unhelpful after booking as i called them before emailing. I advise just email admin as they are great!!… Read Full Review

Written on: 20/10/2007 by popsicle (1 review written)

when booking the holiday, which was 6weeks ago, we were called up to say the hotel The hotel that we had booked was not available, and would we like to have their recommendation, We said NO we would have a look else- where. They assured us that we would have had the transaction reversed, and got a confirmation email, that very same night.
We then found another holiday through the same website which we booked.

Having got to the holiday destination, it appeared that the hotel that we thought had… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/09/2007 by Lainers (1 review written)

Booked a holiday with OT beach to Turkey, had heard some bad comments but everything was great no problems experienced. Recommended to friends at work who have used OT beach and everyone has been happy with the service they have received. Only bad point was the additional £20 per person added after booking for flight costs. Would definately use OT beach again… Read Full Review

I found this review unhelpful because... It only mentions the value for money unfortunately this is not all that makes a good holiday!

A separate review on the holiday itself would be helpful. Also any tips for using www.otbeach.com would be appreciated.

Written on: 27/07/2007 by Whitson98 (4 reviews written)

We booked a week in Lanzarote for Christmas 2006. OTB found us flights and accommodation. It was the first time we had travelled abroad using an Internet based company. Everything was excellent, from the second we booked we received clear confirmation etc.

The accommodation was excellent, exactly as described on the website.

We have just booked a week in Majorca (for August 2007). Fingers crossed for the same result… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/07/2007 by geraldinenolan (1 review written)

Hotel was supposed to be 3 star, Saadia beach, Skanes, Tunisia, all inclusive. It was absolutely awful we had to move out, staff did not want to know, the bathroom was horrific, food was awful kids only had bread and chips all the time, problem with hot water, sunbeds very little. Moved to 3 star down the road from Saadia, called the Sahara Beach, what a Palace compared to the other place, absolutely spotless, food impeccable they even had mash and baked potatoes and free ice cream for kids… Read Full Review

I booked my flights through on the beach, and the booked my accommodation separate, confirm the night we were to be there etc...

Everything was going well until i got a message from on the beach, so i rung back straight away, it took around 7 minutes for someone to answer my call, and when they did the lady was very unprofessional and not very well spoken, I then had to leave a message because she could not find the employ that left the message.

When they finally called me back i was told… Read Full Review
