Ooh, lucky you Soapbox. I got married in Mauritius at the Troux aux Biches and then spent a further week at Le Saint Geran. dh and I often talk about returning with the children. May I be nosy and ask who you booked through or whether you arranged flights and accommodation yourself, separately. Did you shop around much and did the price vary considerably. Just been looking around for somewhere to go this Christmas (yes, I know, it's very expensive and I've left it quite late in terms of package deal flight availability) but any tips would be helpful. Have fleetingly considered Mauritius or maybe Thailand ... or anywhere nice and warm really.
NDP - yes I had to gulp too The majorcan villa sounds lovely - can you post when you've been and let me know if its worth adding to the holiday wish list??
Gobby the flights are overnight in both direction and our children have always been excellent at travelling. Based on lots of flying experience they'll have dinner, watch a film and then conk out for the rest of the time.
Sorry NomdePlume, didn't mean to sound like I was decrying your earlier comments (sadly we don't have a spare £8000 right now either) it's just that having been fortunate enough to have taken a number of two week holidays to a several Caribbean destinations with our children, and having been to Mauritius myself, I thought that Soapbox had got a good deal as she has probably had to pay adult prices for the children in order to get a separate room for them. have I made matters worse now? I didn't mean to appear arrogant earlier.
