The time has come to think of organizing a romantic getaway. This idea has been in the back of my mind for a long time without date or moment. The most recommended in these cases is to take some free time and look for offers from many hotels in the coast of Benidorm, Malaga, Majorca and the Canary Islands. These offers are available every year for those who travel at the end of summer.
Surely we find good prices and even a bargain in a spa hotel close to Palma or in a 4 star accommodation in Calas de Conil, Cádiz, two places where the complementary offer will allow us to enjoy as never before some pleasant days as a couple.
If you do not care about the destination, it is very likely to find a cheap hotel in destinations such as Fuerteventura, Tenerife, Barcelona coast or Marbella: many accommodations offer discounts for booking in advance or for end of season bookings. In this case, it is better to book a room for the end of the next month or even, for October.
Besides the price, when we are looking for the best accommodation for a romantic getaway, it is important to check the special packages and plans for couples offered by every hotel. The most recommended is to seek Adults Only hotels in areas such as Lanzarote, Ibiza, Minorca, Formentera… Or even to opt for a hotel beside the beach of Fuengirola, in Malaga, where we can find good weather in autumn, no crowds, we can enjoy the surroundings and where leisure plans and services for travellers are complete at any time of the year.
Hotel areas such as Playa de Palma and Palmanova, in Majorca, or holiday destinations in Calella coast or Santa Susanna, in Barcelona, are more seasonal and more related to the central summer months and, although in September and October they keep a considerable part of their holiday offer and weather is pleasant, they are not so versatile as the Canary Islands are, especially when you are looking for a sun and beach getaway before winter comes.
Two urban destinations
Urban romantic getaways are other interesting option. They are a completely different plan. Among the keys to choosing well an accommodation are the hotel price, location and destination, but also its services. As in this type of trips we prefer enjoying the city to staying a lot of time in the accommodation, the range of hotels in Madrid or Barcelona has significantly increased, so we can choose among 3, 4 and 5 star hotels or 2 star bed and breakfast, with less accommodation options, but with better location, for example.
This wide variety makes finding cheap accommodation far easier, since the hotel competition in big capitals is strong and not all the hotels could boast about offering the best location in the centre.
Getting a hotel in Puerta del Sol or in Plaza Mayor, Madrid, is relatively easy. Prices from 60 Euros night in a 4 star hotel. If you prefer to give up to be right in the heart of the city and if you seek the comfort of a 4 star hotel close to the Barajas Airport, with all types of services and attentions, there are quality accommodations from 42 Euros night in a double room.
