Interview with the winner of our 5* holiday of a lifetime competition

Conny and Alan Jones

Conny and Alan Jones, winners of our 5* holiday competition

Conny Jones, who lives in the UK, is the lucky winner of our 5* holiday of a lifetime to Constance Le Prince Maurice in Mauritius.

She’ll be heading out to Mauritius with her husband of 30 years, Alan. Find out what winning the holiday means to Conny and Alan.

Q: How do you feel about winning the competition?
A: I was absolutely stunned and over the moon. I’d just got home from work. I work long days as a ward sister and I usually check my emails when I get home to unwind. I nearly didn’t open the email because I thought it was nothing. I had to read it five times. Then I just screamed. My son said ‘what’s up’, and my husband was saying ‘no, it’s a timeshare’. We all looked at it again and again and said, ‘it’s real’. We couldn’t believe it.

Q: What does it mean to you to be going to Mauritius for your 30th wedding anniversary?
A: It’ll be amazing. We’ve just had our 30th anniversary. We’d wanted to go to Rome for a week but both our children are doing exams, AS and A levels. They’re 17 and 18 years old. So we went to North Devon for the weekend instead but it rained all the time so we thought we would have to do something else. Then this came along.

Q: What are your hopes and expectations of Le Prince Maurice?
A: I’ve been looking at the little video of the hotel on the website, trying to imagine what it’s going to be like. I’m really looking forward to the feeling of being pampered. To feel rich and looked after. I think it’s just going to be amazing. All our holidays have been done on the cheap before. The sheer luxury, food, scenery, watersports… it will be amazing.

Q: How does your husband feel about the holiday?
A: My husband finally believes it. He’s really looking forward to it. At Christmas he works really hard in the Christmas tree trade, and in January he usually gets a bit depressed. Christmas will be easier this year knowing that we’ve got the holiday coming. Our children are teenagers and don’t really like sunshine holidays. They did ask ‘is it for 4 people’ but we said, no, it’s just for 2!

Q: Do you often enter competitions, and win!
A: For the last couple of years I’ve entered competitions but I got fed up with it and stopped altogether. It was only a couple of months ago that I started again, and now I only enter ones that I really want. I’ve won small things before like cosmetics. We won a family weekend in London once with tickets to the theatre. But I saw this competition on the Loquax competition site and thought it looked good. I’m still amazed I’ve won.
