Cirali beach holiday, Turkey
Excellent. Just what we needed and wanted. (more)Ruth Bond
One of the main reasons we picked Cirali as our holiday destinations was to see the sea turtles, or as the locals know them, the Caretta...We were honoured to watch the turtle's arduous journey down to the sea, just as the sun was beginning to rise. It was exactly like the natural history documentaries, only without the commentary from David Attenborough! (more)Amy Pickard
Most memorable was sitting in the shade having a fantastic breakfast looking straight out onto the beach in glorious sunshine and swimming with turtles on a day out in a local fisherman's boat (more)Anna Bradley

Kenya beach resort on Manda Island
It was just incredible- I honestly, honestly mean that and I can be very hard to please! I will never forget it and have come home feeling more rested and content than I have ever been before. It was the best start to married life for us we could have possibly had. (more)Aoibheann Kelly

From 80 per accommodation per night (sleeps 2)

From 30 - 60 per person per night incl breakfast
Southern Leyte beach resort, Philippines
Memorable parts? Our stay in the resort was wonderful. Nice accommodation like an oasis in a very remote part of Southern Leyte in Sogod Bay. Wonderful views, very helpful staff, friendly and responsible management. Really top! Tips? Nothing special. Travelling to the resort is best by taking a plane from Manila to Tacloban; from there on an around 3 hour ride to the resort is not so interesting but necessary. Local benefits? Yes, local people were actively involved as staff... (more)Jean-Marie Noreillie
From PHP63000 per couple per week
Sardinia beach hotel in Bari Sardo, Italy
An enjoyable trip that has left us keen to return to Sardinia in future to explore further. We enjoyed the scenery, which was spectacular along the coast and especially further inland. The beach was quiet and relaxing. Staff at the hotel were friendly and helpful, even though few spoke English. Meals in the hotel restaurant were nicely prepared and local in character. (more)Julian Ross
We had a late flight into Olbia and got lost on the last leg in the dark. We were worried that the hotel would be closed as it was so late, but when we finally arrived, we received such a warm welcome...One word - perfect! (more)Sarah Outram
Hotel staff were lovely and did there best to advise us on what to do and gave us regular weather updates. The food was good. A bit more variety at breakfast each day would be better though. (more)Marcus Booth
From 55 - 120 per double room per night
Siolim hotel in Goa, India
This accommodation is a visually beautiful Portuguese villa, traditionally furnished in Portuguese style with enormous, high-ceilinged rooms in lush, well-kept gardens. It is perfect for anybody who is happy to make their own enjoyment. (more)Tony Lee
All employed staff come from the village and demonstrate competence, attention and kindness. The cuisine is particularly excellent and served in generous portions, fresh from the market or their garden. (more)Fabienne Beloeil-Smith
Lovely hotel, beautifully restored, friendly staff, quiet location away from the tourist hotspots. Perfect place to lay about and do nothing...We enjoyed our week and were glad to relax after our tour. (more)Kathleen Cannings
From Rupee2500 - Rupee14000 per room per night
Zanzibar beach bungalows and hotel
After leaving this accommodation it was fine, while at the accommodation, we were disappointed. (more)Ylva Lindberg
Excellent, totally relaxing holiday, we thoroughly enjoyed the basic-ness of it: living with the daylight, early nights and early mornings (so different from our normal city life). (more)Sonja Lavrencic
Lovely relaxing holiday, fantastic local staff running the bungalows & bar created a lovely atmosphere. Highlight probably swimming with dolphins & amazing turquoise ocean as warm as a bath! (more)Natasha Fitton
From US $109 - US $159 per room per night
Boutique hotel in Cirali beach, Turkey
Cirali was quite the best trip I've had since India 13 years ago... The laid back vibe and lots of natural surroundings, unhurried and friendly. The resort was quiet and comfortable and Sinan and all his team friendly and welcoming (more)Sophie Jacobson
The most memorable part of the holiday was probably cooking marshmallows in the blazing heat of the Chimera based on the side of a mountain with a view back down towards Cirali beach...Excellent. (more)Lisa Joanes
Cirali is wonderful for people looking for a laid-back undeveloped location. The scenery is spectacular, the beach great and everything is in walking distance. (more)Erica Gillard
From 450 per week
Pousada Picinguaba luxury beach resort, Brazil
Memorable parts? The whole holiday in Brazil was fantastic! Probably the most exciting part was "meeting" with dolphins up close in Fernando de Noronha. Tips? We got what we expected, I definitely recommend this website for holiday booking. Local benefits? We found Brazil more environmental friendly than we expected and certainly more than many European countries. The place we booked through this site was exactly as described but other areas of Brazil are also well preserved. Overall... (more)Carlotta Crespi
From BRL771 - BRL1219 per double room per night
Thailand beach resort
Memorable parts? Walking on a completely empty long golden beach. Watching the monsoon rains from our windows. Kayaking in the mangrove swamp and watching the monkeys. Tips? If you book in October you may get only rain and not see the sun (we quite enjoyed the rain but some people might not.) Local benefits? Yes, the resort is very sensitive to ecological issues and they are constantly working to find the best ways to dispose of rubbish, generate power etc. They seem to have... (more)Tessa Watt
From 75 - 150 per person per night
Holiday retreat in Greece, Saronic Islands
A great holiday, very relaxing. (more)Niamh O Conghaile
The important factor for us was that the accommodation is a family-run business and it works well. (more)Peter Gander
If you want a quiet, restful holiday where you can read, walk, swim, eat good food, watch the ferries come to and fro and generally chill out, this is for you. (more)Victoria Gunn
From 54 - 116 per room per night
Thailand holiday resort in Chanthaburi
We have had a wonderfully relaxing and peaceful time and have enjoyed exploring the local area and swimming in the pool. This was the perfect place for us to stay and we have been made really welcome, almost like a homestay but with our own bungalow and separate meals. (more)Anna Hughes Corden
I left having had a superb chill in a place of beauty and tranquility in which I constantly felt was special and giving (more)Martin Ruddock
From Baht1360 per villa per night (sleeps 2)
Boutique hotel in Dahab, Egypt
The most memorable part of the holiday was scuba diving in the Gulf of Aqaba. The diving sites and aquatic life were amazing... The people, food and view from the hotel was lovely. I would definitely return to this hotel again. (more)Tracy Watson
On a windy evening, the restaurant staff kindly brought our dinner over to the Bedouin tent, where we were able to enjoy it near the fire and follow it with tiny cups of mint tea and a shared sheesha. Exquisite! (more)Linda Petra
The hotel was a wonderful find!! It is beautiful, and all the staff without exception were very friendly, and helpful - I don't think "NO" is a word they ever use to their guests!!!! (more)Carmen Luck
From US $60 per double room per night
Beach hotel in Croatia
Memorable parts? Ljubo and his father, owners of the accommodation, made our eight day stay a most happy one. They were most welcoming and helpful, providing for our every need. The pansion is clean and the room we stayed in was comfortable with a lovely view out over the bay. Ljubo provided us with great breakfasts with fruit from his own farm. Loviste is a lovely small town of only 200 inhabitants. Tips? We hired a car from Dubrovnik airport, but used it only occasionally,... (more)Caroline Brookes
From 70 - 90 per double room per night
Antalya family friendly hotel in Turkey
fantastic, one of the best we've had in a long time. 4.5 out of 5 (more)Spike McCullagh

Watching the sunset from the terrace of my room. Excellent view, great location., good local food. (more)Georgina Alexander
Excellent. A really relaxing break - I hope to make a return trip. Very encouraging to see a smaller-scale family hotel; well-organised, clean, comfortable, friendly and beautiful, with a positive impact on its local environment. (more)Judy Powell
From 70 - 115 per double room per night
