After deciding what flights to Florida to get and where you want to stay you then have to decide on what type of accommodation is going to be the most suitable for you family or the number of people in the group you are travelling with.
For most European travellers they are used to staying in hotel accommodation when they go on their usual holiday however Florida is not just another holiday destination. A private villa could be a great option.
What could be the main differences between a private holiday villa as compared to a normal hotel in Florida?
Normally in a hotel you would only get one room for your family and depending on how many people are travelling you may need more than one room which will obviously add to the costs. Most private holiday homes will have between two to three bedrooms and possibly a fold down couch in another room. So if the number of people travelling will not fit into a hotel room or you just want more privacy on holiday then a villa could be the option.
The furnishings in a villa are generally of an excellent standard and more spacious than a hotel room. In a lot of cases the villas are used by the owners themselves at certain times of the year.
There is a if you have more than one hotel room you may not get them together. It is even possible that you might be on one floor and the other room could be on another. If the accommodation has more than one building you could have one room in one and the other room in another.
Hotels can be noisy as people come and go at all hours. Like you people are free to come and go as they please and this could result in you being wakened if someone returns to their room during the night and makes a noise.
In your Florida villa you will have cooking facilities should you wish as well as a fridge to stock up with drinks so you don’t need to keep going down to the next floor with your ice bucket and a hand full of change for a vending machine.
In a villa you may or not have a pool if you do it will generally be quite small however it ill be only you and your family using it. Generally in a hotel you will have a large pool which is shared between all the guests.
In the off-peak and sometimes colder months of the year the pools require heating and in most villas this comes at an extra cost. The charges for this vary but could be as much as $40 per day however in a hotel there would be no charge.
