Crazy Question: Is 14 days in paradise too long??

We have booked Coco Palm Dhuni Kholu in July for 7 days and we are super excited!

We are going to add on days to our trip. DH wants to go for 10 days, thinking 14 might be too long and we will get cabin fever. HOwever, the best deals are for 7 or 14 days.

Background: We are not big party people who need loud resorts. Coco Palm is just our style.

Anyone been for 14 Days and not been bored...or is it just right?

Thanks in advance!

No way is 14 days too long. We added on an extra day and it still wasn't enough. :o)

Went for the first time in February for 7 days as hubby said he would be bored. After 3 days I spent an hour in reception trying to extend the stay but we couldn't. Going back 4 weeks today for 2 weeks.

YOU WILL NOT BE BORED!!!

thanks everyone!

I think it is a natural reaction for people who have VERY busy lives and have never taken a 'do nothing' vacation! Until now, all of our vacations are 'GO GO GO' and we come home totally wiped out!

Really looking forward to our stay!

Neither of us snorkle or dive, but we are certainly going to snorkle and are entertaining the thought of getting certified to dive! I have read that Coco Palm has a really good house reef for snorkling.

Thanks for all of your responses! Much appreciated!
