Travel + Leisure A-List Travel Agent Margie Hand

Margie Hand


She’s quick to orchestrate adventurous experiences that will appeal to travelers of all stripes — whether it’s touring a working coffee farm on St. Lucia, hiking through Dominica’s Cabrits National Park, or going on a private snorkeling excursion in the Turks and Caicos. With close to 25 years of experience planning vacations in the Caribbean, she can hook her clients up with stays at some of the region’s most luxurious hotels, including St. Lucia’s Sugar Beach, a Viceroy Resort, and the recently reopened Rosewood Little Dix Bay in Virgin Gorda.  Traveling on a budget? Hand can recommend affordable properties that don’t skimp on style or amenities — like the new S Hotel Jamaica on Montego Bay. And despite the devastation of past hurricanes on the region, Hand remains optimistic about tourism to the Caribbean: “They have taken some hits over the years, but I’m getting a lot of interest for destinations such as the British Virgin Islands and St. Bart’s, where there are great new resorts on the horizon.”

"Margie is exceptional at what she does. Having worked with other travel agents in the past, I can tell you that she takes customer service to a completely different level. She is prompt and thorough in her responses, and she wants your trip to be everything you want it to be and more. She answers all questions, no matter how many, in a thoughtful manner and has never made me feel like a nuisance. I have referred numerous friends and family to Margie and all of them have been extremely pleased. She is currently planning a 52-person trip to the Dominican Republic for me and is doing a wonderful job! I plan to use Margie for all of my future travel needs." - Tory Greig
