Should you Stay in a Villa or a Hotel?

If you’re looking for an autumn getaway, then you’re probably scouring through a range of accommodation in order to find out what best suits your needs. No doubt you’ve looked at some hotels, and although they can meet some requirements, they’ll never beat Crete villas with pools.

If you’re looking for pure relaxation, the flexibility to spend your holiday how you want, and feeling like you’ve got a lot more for your money, then a villa is the option for you!

More Relaxing

Unlike an all-inclusive hotel experience where you’re likely to endure karaoke and noisy neighbours throughout all hours of the day, in a villa you can enjoy the peace and quiet of the country you’re in. There aren’t any impersonal hotel staff or reps being paid to entice you to do activities that you aren’t interested in. This means that you’re able to spend your holiday in the exact way that you want to.

If your idea of a good time means going off the beaten track to find some of the best places that Crete has to offer, or enjoying the pool without having to scramble for sun beds, then a villa is your best bet. They also tend to have a ‘home away from home’ feel, that is difficult to find in a somewhat characterless hotel. With a holiday home, you’re guaranteed to enjoy your accommodation and not just use it as a base.

More Room

Having a family of four share a bedroom in a hotel will always seem a bit cramped compared to the space guaranteed with a villa. Multiple rooms, a kitchen, and a living area are all common occurrences in a holiday home.

More for Your Money

Even if a hotel is all-inclusive, it can feel as though you have a lot less flexibility to do what you want and it can end up feeling like you’re not getting as much for your money. You’re given the flexibility to cook or go out when you’re in a villa, meaning that you never feel like you’re wasting your money and you can budget accordingly.

Furthermore, paying per week rather than per night can often bump the price down. Further still, having your own private parking means that you can come and go as you please and go further afield than if you’re staying in a hotel.
