  • Carmen Colicchio, of Suntastic Honeymoons, has been instrumental during the unprecedented travel crisis affected by Covid-19 starting March 2020. Carmen had planned a destination wedding and honeymoon to Punta Cana for my fiancée and I, scheduled for May 2020. In late March, with less than 2 months to go, we learned that our resort was closing down, with no reopening date projected. All our guests were booked, they had their plane tickets, and everything was selected and ready to go! Although rather disappointed, we understood the gravity of the situation, and Carmen not only provided us with comforting words, but assured us she would work with us and our guests to make it right! She quickly reached out to our guests and notified them, making sure we all got refunded for any deposits made through Suntastic Honeymoons. She also worked with the airlines to provide a credit back for the airfare she had booked for our guests. Her support meant everything to us during this time, and... Read more

    Smaranda, Your destination wedding in Punta Cana will be amazing. I am glad I made the transition of rescheduling into next year easy for you and all your wedding guests. That is what I am here for to make everyone's lives less stressful. And this pandemic sure has provided enough of that. But no worries, your trusted travel advisor is on the job! :-) In the meantime, stay well and keep dreaming of that spectacular destination wedding that will transpire next May! Warm regards, Carmen Colicchio

  • We were referred to Carmen through a family member who was referred through a friend- already a good indication of the quality of her services. We have not been disappointed! Carmen booked our 2 week honeymoon to Greece that was supposed to follow our May 2020 wedding. With the COVID-19 pandemic, we had to reschedule our wedding to August. Carmen was incredibly helpful, understanding, and informative when we were figuring out what to do about the honeymoon. She made sure we knew about important dates regarding payment, and even helped us change one hotel so that the date to make a decision could be pushed back. Unfortunately, we decided it made the most sense to cancel our trip. Carmen was very helpful in letting us know about refund options etc. We will definitely work with Carmen again when we decide what to do moving forward. She's already been great with providing information about a new destination (Italy), when we might want to book that, and what insurance options we have. I w... Read more

    Hi Renee, So happy I have been able to make this very stress-full and difficult process as easy as possible for you and Phil. I look forward to planning the future trip once you are comfortable with traveling. So dream away for the next trip I will be here every step of the way as I did with this trip. In the meantime, stay safe. Warmest Regards, Carmen Colicchio

  • I worked with Carmen from Suntastic after being referred by a friend for a trip to Cabo a few years back. Carmen was so hands-on and helped us when there was an unexpected delay in the opening of the hotel where we were planning to stay. We had a great trip and no stress even with the change of plans thanks to Carmen's guidance. She also planned my sister's honeymoon 3 years ago and most recently, our September honeymoon in Hawaii which, unfortunately, we decided to postpone after our April wedding was postponed due to Covid. With all of the uncertainty with our plans right now and our new date planned for November 2020 (fingers crossed) the last thing we wanted to stress about was a honeymoon that was supposed to be our opportunity to relax and start our married lives together. Carmen has been nothing but easy to communicate with, responsive, supportive and understanding of our decision to hold off on our honeymoon for now and we look forward to rebooking it with her soon.

    Hello Dominique, I was more than happy to make this very difficult situation stress-free for you. Keep positive, we will all get through the other side of this pandemic and at some point we will be rebooking that amazing Hawaii honeymoon you have been dreaming about. In the meantime, stay safe and well. All the best, Carmen Colicchio

  • Carmen is absolutely amazing ! I would work with her again in a heartbeat ! She helped arrange accommodations for our destination wedding of 98 people. Everything went seamlessly. All of our guests were impressed with her service and many plan to use her for future travel plans. Carmen was very patient with us and answered all of our questions with knowledgeable advice and tips! She went above and beyond to make sure every detail was covered and that all of our guests were taken care of. We really enjoyed working with her! I would recommend her to any bride looking to plan a destination wedding!

  • Carmen has been amazing to deal with. We unfortunately had to move our honeymoon to next summer, but she made it super easy for us! Answered all of our questions perfectly, and was extremely fast to get back to us with everything. She has great knowledge of the industry, and helped us pick a location based on what our needs were. I highly recommend!

    Hi Greg, The honeymoon will be amazing! It was my pleasure rebooking the dates and taking care of everything for you. You can focus on the wedding itself I have the honeymoon all set. 2021 will be here before you know it. Stay well. Warm regards, Carmen Colicchio

  • Carmen is absolutely wonderful to work with! She not only helped me choose the location and plan for my honeymoon (Grenada) but also 2 amazing vacations previous to that (St Lucia and Mexico). I wouldn’t think to plan any trips without going through her! She is professional, responsive, reliable, and truly listens. She is also extremely knowledgeable on so many locations and makes setting up a trip stress free. I am always at peace going on my vacations knowing every detail is taken care of. Thank you Carmen, you are the best of the best!

    Sarah, It was wonderful working with you on all these trips. I love how you even got engaged during one of them! But of course the honeymoon is always the most important and I am thrilled to have been a part of making it memorable! Wishing you many, many years of love, happiness and happy travels. Warm regards, Carmen Colicchio

  • Wow, where to begin! Carmen was an absolute doll and life saver! When I got engaged, I didn’t even know where to start, but Carmen was recommended to me by a friend who was recently married. I contacted her and she walked me through everything I needed to know about planning a destination wedding in a kind and patient manner and she made me so excited about my big day. I knew where I wanted my wedding to be, and she put me in touch with all of the right people at the resort. After providing her a list of all of my guests, she was incredibly thorough in reaching out to everyone and following up and providing impeccable detail. She definitely went above and beyond the call of duty many times. The initial thought of getting my family organized and booked and answering all their questions was so daunting, but Carmen literally did everything. She was so kind and sweet and professional to all of my guests and everyone still raves about their interactions with her. As for me, she made my li... Read more

  • Carmen was absolutely fantastic when it came to getting to know me and my husband and what we were looking for when it came to our honeymoon. Carmen kept us up to date on our travel plans as well as all of our flight and booking information. Our honeymoon was such a joy to go on and we had such an amazing time- it helped that all of the planning was already taken care of for us!

    Hi Mackenze, Great to hear how we were able to make this a memorable honeymoon. It was a pleasure working with you! Warm regards, Carmen Colicchio

  • Carmen from Suntastic Honeymoons and Vacations planned an amazing 14 day honeymoon for me and my now husband. We went to Hawaii and visited Oahu, Maui and Kauai, and ended in California. She was always readily available through the planning process, and made us aware when she was away on business. She always provided an updated itinerary, details of excursions, and recommendations for fun tours, restaurants and the best sunsets! We were relieved everything went so smooth when we arrived, and we had little notes greeting us on arrival, as well as every tour group and hotel being aware it was our honeymoon. We felt special, and the best part is that we could relax and did not have to worry about details. If you are not sure where to go, or what accommodations to book, Carmen was able to guide us and provide options based on both of our requests of things we each like to do for fun. She is savvy with Hawaii travel and taking care of details, and we recommend Carmen highly!

    Thank you Peter for sharing all of your feedback and kind words. Wishing you both the best with your marriage! Warm regards, Carmen Colicchio

  • Carmen was a pleasure to work with and we highly recommend her services. She came recommended from my brother/sister-in-law who used her for their honeymoon back in 2012. Her level of experience helped us to plan the perfect trip, with her guiding us to a location, air fare and excursions. She took care of everything, kept us informed throughout the process, and sent us the info packet a couple weeks prior to our trip

    Hi TJ, It was great working with you in planning and booking your Honeymoon. Love hearing how I was able to make your dream honeymoon a reality. Wishing you many years of Happiness and Love together and hopefully more travel. Warm regards, Carmen Colicchio

  • We worked with Carmen for our honeymoon in Italy. Carmen made the entire process very easy and straightforward, helping us come up with realistic plans within our budget. While our honeymoon was unfortunately postponed due to the Covid-19 crisis, we were fortunate to have Carmen to help us through the process of cancelling, rescheduling, and refunding us. She has been helpful and responsive throughout and we look forward to working with her when the world returns to normal!

    Hi Caryn! I know this has been difficult for you needing to postpone your Italy honeymoon. I was happy to make a stressful situation easy and seamless for you. We WILL get to travel again and I look forward to seeing you off on this trip of a lifetime once you are feel more comfortable. In the meantime, stay well and look forward to hearing from you again soon. Warm regards, Carmen Colicchio

  • For all the people wondering if a travel agent is the way to go for your destination wedding the answer is a huge heck yes!!! And finding the right one is even more important!! Carmen was amazing from day one. She came highly recommended and she surpassed my expectations. She was very informative on our very first call, was always there to answer my calls/emails, reached out to the resort for me numerous times, all of my guests had absolutely no issues and only had great things to say about her, she was constantly updating me on our guests booked, and on top of it all we got such great perks in the end! She made everything so easy and she was a sweetheart. One of my guests loved her so much she is in the process of planning her own destination wedding and is also using Carmen. If you are planning a destination wedding or even just a vacation I highly recommend using her, you will be in great hands!

    Carol, Your destination wedding group was lovely to work with and you were a true pleasure. Thrilled to have been a part of your special day and vacation. Warm Regards, Carmen Colicchio

  • If you want a stress free experience planning your honeymoon work with Carmen at Suntastic Honeymoons and Vacations! She was highly recommended from a close family friend and she exceeded our expectations. We never worked with a travel agent before and didn't know what to expect. We just told Carmen a few ideas of what we wanted to do and our price range and she did the rest! As a result we had the perfect honeymoon and felt completely taken care of. Carmen was so organized, knowledgeable and professional. We are so happy we got to work with her and hope to work with Suntastic Honeymoons and Vacations again!
