Consider how much you want to spend

Hotels can vary drastically with budget so you want to set out what you want to spend ahead of time. Think about if you’re looking for a luxury experience or if you want to spend a bit less on your lodgings and more on your activities. Do a search and see what you can get for your budget, taking into consideration the features of the hotels and whether it’s worth paying the price that it is listed for.

Look at the facilities

Hotels have a whole host of facilities so you want to consider if they’re right for you before you go. Make sure they have a good hvac contractor if you’re going in summer as the last thing you want is to not sleep due to it being too hot. If you’re going with kids, check out the facilities they have for them - do they have a water park? A games room? Is there a shop on site? These are all things you need to consider before you book to ensure you have the best time.

Think about the location

A hotel could be amazing and really cheap but it might be in the middle of nowhere and really tricky to get to. This is why it’s a good idea to have a look at where it is located on Google maps ahead of time. By doing so you can see what the area is like and if you think it will be safe.

Decide on your board basis

Do you want to go all inclusive, half board or B&B? These are all things you need to consider when choosing a hotel. The cost can change drastically depending on your board basis. You might want something easy and to just have all your food and drink included, or you might be in a location where you want to eat in local restaurants, it's up to you!
