  I’m Robin, and in addition to publishing hotel reviews since 2014, I am a luxury family travel agent. Luxe Recess has helped thousands of families choose the right hotels for them from our honest reviews. But booking with us is even better! THE PERKS? You can’t VIP yourself, so let me do it! If I book your accommodations at hotels, I am able to pass along several complimentary perks at the leading resorts like…

“I just wanted to say thank you again for all of your help and guidance! We had an AMAZING vacation (not a ‘trip’ but a proper vacation for once) and just adored the hotel. Thank you for arranging everything, we couldn’t be happier and won’t hesitate to recommend you to friends!” —Amy G.

Luxe Recess is an independent affiliate with Travel Experts, a Virtuoso member agency. Virtuoso partners with only the best travel brands in the world, giving Virtuoso travel advisors the ability to add extra amenities and value to luxury family vacations at no extra cost. That means most Luxe Recess hotel rates include upgrades, resort credits, free breakfasts, and other amenities.

You can book most Virtuoso properties through my Virtuoso site with my amenities. You must create a Virtuoso account and use a desktop. I have to book certain brands and properties for you like the Four Seasons. Please complete this form for a stay at one of their properties.
