When we choose a hotel or other types of accommodation, we are immediately interested in the activities, especially when we stay there with the family, for an unforgettable holiday. However, it is important to understand that the activities will depend on several factors such as the number of stars, the geographical location, the relaxation area in the hotel and others.
ACTIVITIES INSIDE THE HOTEL
Hotels from two stars upwards offer gymnasiums. Access to a sports area and fitness centre at the hotel will depend on the package. Indeed, some establishments offer formulas that are accessible to guests at any time, while others choose a specific time, for example, one hour every morning. The same applies to the hotel’s relaxation area, not to mention the board games that are very popular with the elderly, and various games such as table football and billiards. Children are not neglected as the hotels often offer playgrounds such as slides or water games. Moreover, swimming pools are common to all establishments. Whether it is an outdoor or indoor swimming pool, they are accessible to all hotel guests.
ACTIVITIES OUTSIDE THE HOTEL
These are the outdoor activities that depend very much on the location of the hotel. In most cases, hotels benefit from a strategic location that allows them to easily take their guests on a guided tour of the main tourist sites in the region, for example. Those close to the sea offer nautical activities and accessories to enjoy the beaches. For those who like sensations, almost all the hotels near the mountains offer climbing, horseback riding or walks in the air. Some hotels do not have a golf course, but it is common to have an entertainer to take sports enthusiasts to outdoor courses.
Nowadays, establishments are vying with each other imaginatively to stay in the competition but also to simply satisfy their customers. A hotel resort can thus become a real place of escape. Several hotels near the beaches challenge their guests to take a ride on a sand yacht, to do a rally on a lake… It is not uncommon for a hotel to take its guests to visit an entire region in a hot air balloon, offering them to fall asleep in an unlikely place like under a waterfall or in an igloo. In short, it all depends on what you are looking for, your availability and your budget.
