How much spending money going abroad?

Going on holiday to lanzarote in just under 2 weeks. Just me and my partner for 2 weeks.

We have been putting money each week into a savings account, currently have 1,100 euro and hoping to have around 1,600. Would this be enough?

We will be eating out and cooking in some nights to avoid eating out every night. Probably do lunch out sometimes but rolls, sandwiches from shop etc.

Breakfast is cheap so probably eat that out most days.. We will be drinking a lot though, and tend to buy beer for the fridge (self catering) that we can drink on the balcony before we head out for the night... ( the nights we aren't eating out we will still be drinking out!) Used to cheap drinks as it is so will only drink in relatively cheap places... Won't be paying a fiver for a pint all night for example.

Would 1600 be enough between us? We will be going to water parks, theme parks renting bikes etc... Don't wanna be skrimping!

That's €800 each week. €400 per person for week or say, €56 ish a day each. What's beer - about €2 and other drinks about €4. Say what four drinks makes around €15/6 leaves €40. Evening meal around €10 average as your eating in some nights. Leaves €30. Waterpark about €25 so not a huge amount of change and not much left for taxi etc. If you drink more than x4 drinks a night or buy lunch out etc you might want to take a bit more but you could manage well enough. Are transfers already paid?

Don't need to worryabout transfers thank god, were gonna use the local bus when we land in lanzarote or a 15 euro taxi one way.

And getting to our airport on way to lanzarote were catching an airport bus, which were paying for on the spot and it'll set me back about 20 euro for myself.

We want to really enjoy ourselves and not feel like we have to hold back! Or go easy

OK just realised yeah they basically are another form of the answer yo your question is no. They're still to be paid
