A Villa in Florida or a Hotel

By: Craigwalker
After booking your Florida flights you will then need to arrange appropriate accommodation. Do you stay in a hotel or rent a private villa? Your choice will depend on the size of your family or the number of people travelling with you.

Most travellers from Europe are generally used to staying in hotel acommodation when they go on their usual European holiday however the option to rent a private villa is more common in Florida than anywhere else.

What could be the main differences between a private holiday villa as compared to a normal hotel in Florida?

When you stay in a hotel room generally all the family are in the one room and depending on how many are travelling you may need more than one room which will add to the costs. When you have a private holiday home you will have more than one bedroom and a couch that can be made into another bed. So if you need more than one bedroom a villa can offer you this and may work out cheaper than having to get three separate hotel rooms.

The furnishings in a villa are generally of an excellent standard and more spacious than a hotel room. In a lot of cases the villas are used by the owners themselves at certain times of the year.

Another thing to consider if that if you need to get more than one hotel room there is no guarantee that you will get them together. You could have a room on one floor and the other could be on a different floor in a different part of the hotel.

Lots of hotels can be noisy and people staying in rooms nearby are free to come and go as they please. This means that there could be noise at any time of the night, especially if the people next to you have been out all night at a club.

In your villa you would expect cooking facilities and a fridge for you to fill up with your food and of course drinks. If you stayed in a hotel or a motel you would have to go looking for the ice machine and make sure you have enough change for the vending machine for any cold drinks.

In a villa you may or not have a pool if you do it will generally be quite small however it ill be only you and your family using it. Generally in a hotel you will have a large pool which is shared between all the guests.

In the off-peak and sometimes colder months of the year the pools require heating and in most villas this comes at an extra cost. The charges for this vary but could be as much as $40 per day however in a hotel there would be no charge.
