Me and my DH are both self employed. Consequently we hardly ever take holidays and when we do its mainly a few days in the uk here and there. The last holiday we had was to visit my Dsis in Malaysia. It was great, but my lovely sis basically Organised all our outings. We did some amazing stuff, but the thing we enjoyed the most was a simple beach resort break for a few days on a small island
Now we want to book ourselves a holiday and have no idea where to start. Our dcs are 8 and 6. We'd like to go in August (I know, I know). We'd like a nice relaxing place for us, not much effort to find food (so maybe a buffet restaurant) and some great water parks for the dcs. However have the possibilty for some nice outings.
We've looked at Thompson holidays villages but feel slightly like its Butlins in the sun.
I've been looking at Ibiza, which looks nice but I haven't much experience of places to go on.
We can spend up to about 5k.
Can you give me any of your experiences? I feel so naive about holidays. I don't even know the jargon.
if you like malaysia why not try Thailand its great for kids ( i took my son when he was nine on my own and he loved it )
food is cheap, hotels are great standard and cheap i did bangkok and phuket and Hau Hin few years ago and it was great and with your budget you would be fine i used a company called http://www.escapeworldwide.co.uk/ twice for holidays and they were fantastic arranged all pick ups ect and everything went really smoothly
Ibiza in the north in Portinax or Peurto San Miguel are fab no clubs within a 30 mile radius lol but the holiday clubs for kids or thompsons so not at the high end like Sensatori
