Love Birds need help!!!!!


We have been deciding on our summer holiday for a long time now but still no joy on even developing a short list.

Have looked into self catering and all inclusive holidays around the caribbean and within Mexico.

We have a preliminary list of requirements that we would like from out holiday which are as follows:

1. White sandy beach/Crisp clear water

2. Good food (my bf is a chef so is a bit of an arse when it comes 2 food)

3. Preferably no dress code, i.e not having to wear long trousers. We understand that this is a tough requirement but my bf would enjoy his holiday alot more if he can wear shorts. (HE ISN'T A CHAV/WHITE TRASH - JUST WANTS 2 GET AWAY FROM THE RULES AND REGULATIONS OF WORK, WHICH IS WHAT A HOLIDAY SHOULD BE).

4. My own little requirement is perhaps a bit Princess like - however - I also want to get away from real life for 2 weeks also and am quite excited about having a hot-tub in our room. ITS NOT 4 THE WASH - I have thoughs regularly - It's just for the indulgence : )

We understand that we may not find a place catering 2 all of our requirements and are willing to give and take where we haveto.

Our price limit is around £3000 ($6000) for 2 weeks whether this is for a self catering holiday or an all inclusive package - we have not got a specific requirement for this yet.

Thank you for reading this and we would very much appreciate any ideas you may have on hotels, resorts or other or any other advice.

Thanx again : )

Try Amanpulo in Palawan. But your budget will not last 2 weeks here but you will really feel like royalty at this resort.

Amanpulo is roughly $1000 per night, not including food and drinks. Too expensive for what you are looking for.

Boracay! There are lots of good restaurants, lovely white sandy beaches, no dress code. Fridays resort would be my pick of hotels.

Hi Amy,

Would recommend you Boracay, and a cool beach front place is Blue Mango, their garden rooms are real nice and clean.

Enjoy your trip.
