Why are adult only holidays and hotels so expensive and why can't the holiday companies and hotels do more to help those of us who just want a quiet holiday in the sun without being overrun with noisy kids?
I have just returned from a week long holiday in with Fuerteventura my partner and the only thing that spoilt it was the children. We stayed in a all inclusive hotel and we purposely picked a week out of school holidays to avoid the brat brigade. Everything was fine until half through the week when we were unceremoniously woken up at 7am by screaming kids who were allowed to run wild disturbing everyone apart from their parents.
It seems that as soon as they land some parents just let the children run riot without giving anyone else who happens to be on holiday a second thought. All my partner and I wanted to do was have a well earned rest after working hard, and up until half way through the week we got just that. However, when the the family from hell moved into an apartment nearby they woke us up at daft-o-clock every morning!
On returning to the UK I decided to check out adult only holidays only to find you have to pay a lot more for the privilege of getting the quiet room you deserve, and on top of that you are not alway guaranteed a brat free hotel. In an ideal world hotels would be aware of this when checking in guests keeping the kids to one side of the hotel, so they can cry, scream and squawk to their hearts content and us couples looking for a bit R&R to the other side and never the twain shall meet. I feel we are penalised for not wanting other people's' screaming brats around us.
