Happy New Year everyone – it’s time to start thinking about summer holidays 😎 Hopefully my best travel deals will help! This week I have last minute escapes to the Algarve, a city break in Amsterdam, an adult only break in Menorca, 5* luxury in the Hard Rock Tenerife hotel, family deals to Orlando, a cruise on MSC’s newest ship and a luxury island escape to Borneo.
Best last minute:
Beat the January blues and fly off to the Algarve this weekend, where the temperatures are a balmy 18 degrees and sunny! Stay in the luxurious 5* Grand Real Santa Eulalia for only €263 for seven nights and enjoy the beach front location and their award winning spa!
Best city break:
Enjoy a two night stay in one of Amsterdam’s most popular hotels, the 4* Corendon Vitality Hotel, for only €185 this February. With excellent tripadvisor reviews this is a steal for a two night break. Fly out early morning with Aer Lingus and home in the evening so you will have three full days to explore this superb city.
Best May deal:
Kick start your summer by chilling out in the highly rated (number 1 on tripadvisor) MenorcaMar apartments in the pretty island of Menorca. This is an adult only property and has been completely refurbished. This is the perfect choice for a relaxing week in sun. Price for seven nights including flights, transfers and checked baggage is only €394 per person.
Best summer sun:
Mixing luxury with lively is not always easy to find. Be the first to visit the 5* Hard Rock Hotel in Tenerife and you might just find the right balance. This brand new hotel is the second of its kind in Europe ( Ibiza is home to the 1st one). Fly from Dublin on the 4th of July and enjoy a seven night stay on a bed and breakfast basis for €798 per person.
