If you a travelling with a family or group of people you are not going to enjoy your stay crammed into a small hotel room. Yes you can book additional rooms but at a “per room, per night” price the cost is going to quickly add up! With self-contained holiday accommodation you can select from a variety of sizes, styles and holiday homes that are often much bigger than your average hotel room so you have enough space to spread out and relax. Apartments and units generally range from 1 to 3 or 4 bedrooms that can accommodate up to 10 or more guests comfortably.
You will have much more privacy in a self-contained property compared to a hotel room as they often feature good separation of living and bedroom areas compared to the open plan lay out of a compact hotel room.
