DO schedule in some chill time
Make sure you don’t over-plan your vacay! While it’s important to pre book the things that your group don’t want to miss out on it’s also inevitable that too much sun and sangria will take its toll leaving you needing some time to relax, after all it is supposed to be a holiday right?
Spending a day at the apartment or villa is also a good money saver if you’re on a budget. Why not put together your own pamper package and organise some pre night out games. Website such as www.hitched.co.uk and www.thehenplanner.com have some great ideas! We can also arrange a cheeky butler for an hour to serve drinks and play games which works out as a super cheap and fun night in activity.
DON’T miss out on the real Marbella
With programmes like TOWIE making Marbella popular with hen do’s it’s not surprising that many hen parties accidentally book to stay in Marbella Town when actually the bars, beach clubs and nightclubs are a little further down the road in Puerto Banus. Despite this, booking to stay a little further out could be a blessing in disguise! With its beach Chiringuitos, sea view cocktail bars and picturesque old town Marbella is a great place to enjoy a glimpse into a more traditionally Spanish lifestyle.
Plaza de los Naranjos is a beautiful location for food with The Orange Tree Restaurant being one of our favourite picks! For a great beachy lunch or evening meal check out The Boardwalk Restaurant and for tapas and cocktails Mas Que Tapas and Punto Faro are also great places to visit!
