If you are planning on taking your family on a holiday of a lifetime, you will probably want to book luxury accommodation for the length of your stay, where ever that may be. Although you can of course, wade your way through a whole heap of brochures, you must remember that the entries in the brochures are all written by people that have an interest in you going there, namely because they will profit from your stay. This means that the entries may be at least a little bit bias in favour of you choosing it. Therefore to try and find a genuine description of a place before you book, read a family travel blog or two, they may be more accurate. These blogs will usually have been written by someone that actually stayed at the hotel you are looking to book and so knows how it actually is. As the blog will mention any bad points, as well as any good ones, which brochures rarely do, it will give you a better idea of what you are booking.
Another way to locate or book accommodation is to go to a hotel’s web site but once again, that site was written by the hotel and so is very unlikely to mention if it has any bad points. A travel blog is today, a regular item on the internet and so they are easy to find, just type in the town, destination or even hotel that you are thinking of going to and look for any blogs about it. By spending a little time doing this, when you actually book your accommodation, you will have a more accurate idea of what you can expect when you finally reach there.
It may not be that hotels want to deliberately misinform you, as the details will usually be fairly accurate but, not all the details may be shown. For instance, a hotel that you look at the web site for, may say that some rooms have excellent views of the beach but may not say that the ones that don’t, have views of a garbage dump or something similarly repulsive. If you knew this, which a blog may point out, you would ensure that you book the accommodation with a beach view and if there were no such rooms available, you would look for a different hotel.
If you doafter having read a travel blog and you were happy with your choice, you may want to help others by writing your own blog on your return. You may also like to write one if you were not happy with your choice but this time mention what exactly it was that you didn’t like and by doing that, you may save another family from having the unhappy experience that yours had to endure. There are many hotels out there, all plying for our custom and so we should try and help each other to find the ones which are best suited to our individual wants.
