Even the most rebellious takes it. Even those who say nothing or criticise it end up to plan such a holiday once. And they enjoy it. The sun and beach holidays, lying down to dolce far niente for a week in a paradise at the edge of the sea, is one of those little comforts that everyone choose from time to time. It is no wonder that – and now they can say no, but those who denies it, will soon wish they could delete those words – planning holidays basically means: resting in a quiet place, where you can spend you free time in the most comfortable way, relaxing your body and mind, and doing everything that you cannot afford in the place where you live. It does not matter whether it is sport or long reading days lying down on sand. In any case, no one gets bitter for a sweet.
It is true that the sun and beach holidays have a host of detractors, because in many occasions the budget is limited and you end up to any beach in Torremolinos or Benidorm, drowsing surrounded by people, children and beach equipment that leave not a single bit of sand free throughout the summer. But this is a very reductionist view of the travel concept we are talking about today. Sun and beach can also mean escape to a virgin beach among nature for 5 days, enjoying a comfortable accommodation and the varied entertainment proposals designed for their guests. An example is the resort in the El Rompido beach of Garden Hotels chain, an Adults Only resort in Huelva that offers sol and beach with 4 star facilities, interesting and varies complementary plans, and services customised for couples and adults who look for the maximum calmness.
Sun and beach, par excellence, is the Caribbean. In addition, despite those who criticise it, if you can afford it, in terms of dates and budget, everyone should go to a resort in Playa Bávaro or to an All Inclusive hotel in Riviera Maya, México at least once in a lifetime. Booking an All Inclusive hotel in the Caribbean, does not mean giving up visiting the destination or remaining in the resort all days of your stays, but, if you like it, it is a good plan as well. The value for money is exceptional and you can enjoy everything you want any time and in any place of the resort; you have every kind of service, not only inside the hotel, but also in its gardens and at the beach; you have parties, relax, culture… Everything you want and almost everything is included in your initial budget. Therefore, you can plan your holidays in an easy way and without last minute distress.
However, for those who do not like take an airplane and will never cross the pond, there are resorts very similar to those of the Caribbean in Spain, such as for example, the resorts in Playa de La Barrosa, Cádiz, that boast of having the biggest number of sunny days in Spain and are at the seafront. Some hotels in Costa Adeje, in Tenerife, are not inferior to the big Caribbean resorts. Actually, there you can find the one that, for three years in a row, has been chosen as the best All Inclusive hotel in Spain by its guests.
The All Inclusive resorts in Tenerife, Lanzarote, Majorca or Andalusia are perfect for holidays with children: comfortable, with complete services, every time more specialised (a good example are those called Picapiedra Hotels, of the hotels for family holidays range of Melià Sol Hotels). Some of them feature different spaces for parents and children, so that also the adults can enjoy some relaxing holidays, even if they travel with their kids… However, above all, they are an advantage, because you can have a fixed quotation beforehand that avoids you any distress at the end of your holidays.
