Yes, I know I'm here again!
Can someone give me some advice for a friend of mine? They are looking for a week over or just after Xmas.
Which would be the best hotel for the following:
Mum & Dad early 30's down to earth people, 2 & 10 yr old children - one room. So family friendly is a must and evening entertainment not a big deal (just as well!). I imagine with the children they will not want to go out EVERY night for their lunch/evening meal. I also think they would not want to cook themselves every lunch/night, so kiddie food available in restaurant a must.
They are not there to see the sights, just an introduction to TG and a week's rest (not that it'll be possible with small one's!!). Although I'm sure they will want to visit local schools as the Mum is a Schl Head.
I have explained (from our one and only visit and also from your wonderful advice) that B&B is best and stock fridge from local supermarket etc. BUT I know what children are like at that age and lots of drinks, ice creams etc etc get wasted, also adult food and drink when looking after the little ones get wasted/split/knocked on floor or just plain cold and unedible!
I'm just wondering if the AI Sheraton would suit them best as atleast they would know the price before they left and could then take enough for the evenings they want to go out??
I did tell them the Kairaba would probably suit them as right on the strip and can stock up fridge etc, but as never been to that hotel thought I would pass it on to you guys!!
They are not expecting 5 star luxury but I should mention that they have done 5 star in Maldives several times - so I think they will expect atleast a nicely A/C decorated/clean room, especially as they have small children.
I explained our stay at the Senegambia last year in great detail so they know the quality of our 3 star (great for us) although we had to do several room changes before we got one with A/C that cooled the room. I also suggested for the kids a nice beach - not for the kids to swim in but for sand castle purposes on the shore line!
Any suggestions would be great as I would love to help them find a hotel they would be happy with for the family and more converts to TG than caribbean!!
Many thanks, jacks
