You’re plonked on the sofa. Let’s face it, it’s probably raining. And you’re watching a Toy Story re-run, again. So, why not use your much-needed bank holiday to find a great All Inclusive deal? It’s actually the best time for it. We’ve done the hard work for you, and rounded up our top pick of last-minute getaways, winter warmers and hot spots for next summer. Be quick, though, they definitely won’t be around for long…
Slide into a SplashWorld deal from £423pp
We get it. Summer’s slipping through your fingers, and you can’t face being paler than Snow White until next August shows up. Panic over. Pack your goggles and head to Hotel Saturno in Majorca from £423pp. It’s part of a three-hotel complex and is perfect for water babies big and small with eight pools to dive into. Yep, eight. Stay here and you’ll get free entry into Hidropark, a huge waterpark next door. Try your hand at the 54-hole golf course or squeal your way down Spiral, a slide that shoots you from top to bottom in 30 seconds flat. Don’t forget that Majorca’s known for its beaches, too, and the hotel’s just a 15-minute walk from Alcudia’s main sandy strip.
Hotel: Hotel Saturno – also known as Club Mac and Jupiter Saturno
Deal: 7 nights from £423pp, departing on 18/9/17
Hit the White Isle from £353pp
Yep, we bet you didn’t expect to see an Ibiza deal on here. Neither did we – especially not a four-star number. This one’s a few paces away from a shallow sandy cove, making it a real family-favourite. It comes with its own splash park, and is a five-minute taxi away from San Antonio town, so it’s perfect whether you want to catch a big-name DJ set or one of the island’s legendary sunsets. If you fancy this hotel, check it out on TripAdvisor, too. It’s a big hit, and its chocolate fountain gets a special mention. Yum. Snap it up quick – we can’t see this one lasting any longer than a set at Café Mambo…
Hotel: Fiesta Tanit Hotel
Deal: 7 nights from £715pp departing on 30/8/17
Warm up your winter in Paphos from £372
If you’re after something a little later in the year, why not spend your bank holiday planning ahead for winter? We’ve found a deal to one of the most handsome hotels in Paphos, and the price tag is equally as appealing. It’s bagged a 4T plus rating and offers up a stunning pool scene, with tonnes of palm trees, a stone sunbathing terrace and grassy lawns that lead you right up to a sandy cove. And, talking of sunbathing, this great deal’s in December, and will see you back in the UK on Christmas eve with a tan that’ll definitely make Santa jealous.
Hotel: Louis Imperial Beach
Deal: 7 nights from £372 departing on 17/12/17
Spend next summer in Bulgaria from £345pp
Right, hands up, who’s super organized? If you’re looking ahead to next summer we salute you – it’s a great move. Booking ahead guarantees that you’ll get first pick of the best rooms, views and hotels. We’ve picked out this one not only for its eye-catching price tag, but for its stunning beachfront setting, too. And, because you’re right on the sand, activities like beach volleyball come as standard. If you’re feeling extra-flash thanks to bagging a great deal, take the 20-minute walk along to Ozbor town and go shopping for souvenirs.
Hotel: Hotel Sol Luna Bay
Deal: 7 nights from £345pp departing on 11/5/17
