How to Find the Perfect Place to Stay When you’re on Vacation

It’s now time for you to decide where you would like to go on vacation, and who you would like to go on vacation with. Once you’ve decided upon your destination of choice you will have to think about where you would like to stay. Do you want to make the most of the costa rica beach house rentals that are available, or would you prefer to stay in a hotel?

Knowing how to find the perfect place to stay is not always that easy. The good news is we have put together a few tips for you that should help you find the perfect hotel, beach house or villa.

Think about how many People are Travelling with you

If you are going on vacation with at least 4 other people it may be worth your while staying in a villa or a beach house rather than a hotel. This is because you may want to spend a lot of time together, and staying in a hotel could mean you’ll have to walk from your room on one side of the hotel to the other.  If you don’t need to be around those you are travelling with then a hotel may work just fine.

Do you all need to be Sleeping Under the Same Roof?

If you think you need to be sleeping under the same roof with everyone you’re travelling with, you may want to think about booking a beach house. Beach houses typically come with at least 2 bedrooms and plenty of space for everyone. This means your party of 6 could start the day off together, and enjoy each other’s company all day, every day. What’s more is beach houses typically offer much more than hotels do as they tend to have a full-size kitchen and dining area while offering you the chance to visit the beach as often as you want.

What Facilities do you need?

Are you hoping to stay in accommodation that offers you a laundry service along with a fully fitted kitchen and a private pool? Or are you simply looking for a bed to rest your head at night? When it comes to considering where you would like to stay you will need to think about whether you want to stay somewhere that offers you very little in the way of facilities, or somewhere that offers you everything you need and more.

Accommodation that typically offers you all the faculties you need is likely to cost more per night, but having access to WiFi, a private office space, and luxurious bedrooms are often well worth the extra cost.

Go Online and look at Reviews

One of the best ways for you to find the right accommodation for you is to go online and take a look at the reviews previous guests have left. When writing reviews, most people tend to tell it like it is. If they’ve had a bad experience they’re likely to tell you about it. If they’ve been impressed with their choice of accommodation you’re likely to hear about that too.

You may also want to think about looking at a number of websites, such as comparison sites so you can see what the general consensus about that particular hotel is. If there are more bad reviews than good, it may be worth your while staying somewhere else.

Take your time, read some of the most recent reviews and make your decision from there.

Take a Look at Photographs

Whether you’re visiting a hotel’s website or you’re booking through a comparison site, take a look at the photographs people have uploaded. Chances are, guest’s photographs will be much more accurate than those taken by the hotel. For example, the photographs the hotel have put on the website may show what the hotel looked like 10 years ago, but it may not reflect what it looks like now. Therefore, you should think about looking closely at photographs taken by guests as they will reflect what the hotel looks like now.

How much Money do you Want to Spend?

One of the factors that ultimately determine where people end up staying is the price. If you are on a strict budget you may only have a few hotels to choose from, however, if you are willing to spend a little more money, you may be presented with a lot of different choices.

The more people there are travelling with you, the cheaper your accommodation will be.  For example, let’s imagine 4 of you are thinking of staying somewhere that costs $2,000 a night, and you stay for 5 nights. The total cost of your accommodation will be $2,500 per person. However, if there are 8 of you staying in the same accommodation you will each have to pay just $1,250 per person.

When it comes to finding the perfect place to stay you will need to take a lot of factors into consideration. Think about how many people are travelling with you, and decide if you want to sleep under the same roof as everyone else. Think about the facilities that are available to you and whether you are offered everything you need. Don’t forget to look at the photographs and reviews that have been posted by other guests so you can get a taste as to what the accommodation is really like. Lastly, think about how much money you would like to spend, and be prepared to invite a few more people on vacation with you so the cost of your stay is cheaper.
