Calan Bosch Menorca Family Resort

Arenal den Castell

This resort lies above a horseshoe bay with an almost enclosing headland on the horizon. It also means, the water here is shallower, calmer and warmer due to the very shallow fall of the fine sandy beach into the water. All this making this just about the most photographed resort beach on the island. Located mainly (500m) behind the beach Arenal den Castell caters to package holiday Hotel guests while the independent holidaymaker will find most of the Villas in the newly developed headland of Punta Grossa with its easy access to the beautiful beach.

Cheap Luxury Hotels

The ubiquitous presence of online hotel portals has made it much easier than ever before to rack up great savings on luxury accommodation, with just a bit of invested time and effort. This in effect makes experiencing both affordability and an ultimate pampering stay a reality. I shall now offer some guidance in how to secure fantastic deals for cheap luxury hotels.

Before you make a decision to stay in a luxury hotel and start to find discounted rates for it, do contemplate what you are trying to get from your hotel stay. Do you seek the most luxurious treatment from your hotel while you pamper yourself in a decadent setting? Or do you just crave for a good night’s rest before you set out on your business in your destination in the morning?

If you choose the former, then a stay in luxury accommodation would be suitable for you. You may also want to consider if you would be able to make full use of your luxury stay by enjoying the wide range of amenities and services on offer.

Searching for the most value for money deals for your luxury accommodation has gotten more efficient with the Internet. Many online travel agencies and luxury hotel chains operate hotel booking websites which readily offer you information about which luxury hotels can be found in your chosen location. You may also be able to find numerous deals on luxury accommodation to lure travelers but do bear in mind that these deals often vary from website to website, hence knowing where to find the most attractive deals is important.

Online travel agents are thus an ideal booking resource as they often manage to secure specially-negotiated rates which are among the most competitive online. You will also be able to compare the various luxury hotels in your chosen location using criteria such as rates, inclusions, services and facilities. This will assist you in making a wise decision in selecting the hotel which you feel will give you the most value for your budget.

Before you make your decision regarding which hotel to book, do also take into account the prices of the different room categories which typically vary to fit different tastes even within a luxury accommodation itself. You can thus get the best savings by going for the more reasonably-priced room categories. These rooms still offer amenities that are comparable if not more luxurious than the best rooms in cheaper hotels, while allowing you access to the numerous plush amenities and services of a luxury hotel.

Avoiding Dreaded Hidden Charges

Another aspect of the hotel room that can hike up one’s total tab is the telephone bill. Some hotels charge a premium even for local calls, and even some more for international calls. There might even by charges for supposedly toll-free 1-800 hotlines.

Usually, there will be phone rates indicated somewhere in the room. Should there be no notifications in sight, then a simple inquiry to the front desk will let you know how much the hotel charges for particular types of calls. That is a good way to avoid finding out too late that your phone costs jacked up your hotel bill.

In this day and age of the mobile phone, however, this should not pose as much of a problem. After all, the cellphone is one of the most indispensable tools nowadays, and there is little chance one will be using his or her hotel room’s land line anyway.

A popular hotel service is, of course, room service. It is pretty convenient, and you would be surprised at the number of people who want to book at a hotel just to try ordering room service at least once in their lives. Still, this unnecessary convenience can be very taxing on the budget. Many hotel personnel live on the service charge-simply because service charge is quite hefty. By getting room service dinners, you will surely hike up that tab on service charge alone.

The last item on our list is technically not a hidden charge: Tipping. We have mentioned this before; you might want to tip the guy in valet parking or the room service guys. The bottom line: everybody knows tipping is an optional thing.

Still, many think it will look bad if one does not tip. Heck, the bell boys might not be so accommodating next time you request help with your luggage. You are just securing a smooth stay, or you could be showing some form of generosity. Either way, be careful-tipping too much (especially with service charge already factored in some of the bills) can lead to excessive spending at hotels.

Discounted hotel rates or no, one will end up with a bloated hotel bill upon checkout if one does not watch the hidden charges mentioned above. Always ask for the details, and make sure you get what you pay for. With diligence and care, you would not have to spend beyond what you really need or want.
