5 Star Resort or Luxury Beachfront Holiday Home?

5 Star Resort or Luxury Beachfront Holiday Home?

We are often asked the question – 5-star Resort or Luxury Beachfront Holiday home?  Some say 5-star resort all the way!  Others say, hang on, there is nothing better than having your own private resort with everything (and more!) offered at the 5 star resorts – often at a much better price by renting your own private, luxury beachfront holiday home.

So, we’ve done the comparison.  We’re not keen on disappointing our neighbours by naming their specific business (as we all have our benefits), but the information below is based on information we could find when comparing our La Maison Pacifique luxury beachfront holiday rental with two beach resorts close by..  We are delighted with our findings.

The Costs

Always a biggy – how do we compare on costs?…  The following table shows per person per night rates based on current rates for 6-9 September (3 night weekend) or a weekly stay 6-13 September 2013.

Must admit that we were a little surprised by this!  We feel La Maison Pacifique is better value across the board, and that is just on costs!
