I have booked with otbeach.com for many years years and have never come across a problem with them. I would definitely recommend booking with them. Their website is easy to use and most importantly cheap!! Really don't know where all these bad reviews come from… Read Full Review

“i travelled with 8 family members to icmeler in July...”

Written on: 29/11/2009

i travelled with 8 family members to icmeler in July 2009 with OTB holidays. Although the holidays was fantastic, halfway through the holiday we had been advised that our return flight would be delayed for atleast 7 hours due to time changes. When i called OTB they had told me my transfer times from the apartments had been changed so we did not have to sleep in the airport all night with a 1 year old baby and a 4 year old. Unfortunately this was not the case and the transfer people picked us up… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/11/2009

good value for money and website is pretty easy, but just hope nothing goes wrong because you wont get a good response from their customer services. I've used them 3 times before with no problem but the last time I had problems with the amount of money they charged and checking in on line. Their customer care team are NOT very helpful and i will not be using them again. Would advise anyone to check the airline websites yourself (you get more choice with the options like baggage allowance ) and… Read Full Review

“Be warned but have a laugh at my expense. ”

Written on: 07/11/2009

Be warned but have a laugh at my expense.
Below are extracts from a series of emails concerning a holiday I just booked. In a nutshell I booked on line with a company (OTB On the Beach) guaranteeing the best prices or they'd give you triple the difference back.

Me:
Hi,
I have booked with your company on a number of occasions because the service has been excellent and the holiday pricing competitive. Unfortunately, this time the holiday cost is not as competitive, so I would like to take up… Read Full Review

“Hi, ”

Written on: 05/11/2009

Hi,

Last Monday I booked a flight with OTB to Antigua in December. It is only now (Thursday) that I wonder if I had been ripped off. I went online and googled to see if there was a site that left reviews for OTB. Reading most of the reviews my feeling had been confirmed!

The flight only price was quoted £574 online. I wanted to book as quickly as possible as that was the cheapest I had seen after searching so far. As I came to the page where you have to fill out your credit details it seemed… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/11/2009

I still think that this company is a joke..I have booked a combined holidays with them (flights and a hotel). First of all 3 days before departure I realised they have not sent me any hotel voucher even though teh booking said I am paying my initial amount for both. When I called them they said there was no availability for this hotel (where 7 of my other friends booked!!). I had a terrible time searching for availability somewhere else which I fortunately found finally. They were not able to… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/10/2009

I booked a holiday to Lanzarote through otbeach.com, I was then informed more than 24hrs later that with the flights I had booked there was only one seat available.
I fully understand that the holiday is not definate until they have confirmed it with you by email but what I found most unprofessional and dissapointing was that I had to call the company to find out what was going on each time and was left on hold for up to 20mins both times, when my calls were finally answered I was met with… Read Full Review

Written on: 23/09/2009

As you read this website, you will see that we have all be scuppered in one way or another by On the Beach.

Basically what they do is advertise vague holidays on the web with vague prices which will see and often still are way below what you will have seen on the main tour op websites. And so you think great ( as we did ) and book up and duely pay your money. Now that theu have processed payment they THEN look to start booking the holiday up and as you will see they either go to look at the… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/09/2009 by Donjak (1 review written)

I booked a holiday with On The Beach Holidays and was sent to apartments mirachoro 2 which were advertised as 3 star, well what a joke that is. They were dated, sockets hanging out from walls, rooms dull and dingie, towels old, grey and torn, bath dirty as was grouting on shower tiling, shower was a rubber hose with a metal nozzle. Staff were friendlt enough and this was after we were moved rooms.

This is no more than a 1 star hotel and please don't book especially as a 3 star. OTbeach should… Read Full Review

Written on: 09/09/2009

Awful, Awful, Awful! - On The Beach Holidays put Mr on my ticket instead of Miss - admitted it was their fault, but did not rectify the mistake. I have spent the whole morning on the phone to them on hold at 10p per minute! I get promised they will call back, but they don't. Its not worth the saving that you get. Have never had this awful experience with any company before. I advise you that you will need a holiday after dealing with them… Read Full Review

In January 2009 On the beach holidays.com were having a "January Sale" and my friend and I booked and paid in full a 7 day beach break to Agadir Morocco staying at the 5* Sofitel Hotel for £250.

We confirmed with the lady that this was the correct hotel and she said yes. Still at £340 7… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/08/2009

The On the Beach Holidays website was very easy to use and there was no hidden charges. Two of my friends and I went to tenerife and spent only £430 on travel and all inclusive hotel. We enjoyed our stay very much we would recommend tenerife to anyone as there is alot to do for everyone. We went from the Wednesday to the next Wednesday. The hotel Villa Adeje Beach Resort that we were in was very basic but had plenty of room to move around. Would definitely recomend this to anyone… Read Full Review
