During the season, the best way to grab a bargain is to book a package deal. These are usually available all year round and need to be paid in full at time of booking and are non refundable and non transferable. But the savings are quite good. During the month of January to April, operators and accommodation providers lower the rates to attract more business in what I believe is the best time of the year anyhow! The water is just so warm and the colours are spectacular – a photographers paradise! If you just want to get away from the rat race, then I believe January to April are the best months. It is quiet, stunningly beautiful and the best value for your money! Usually prices are rock bottom and you can snatch great bargains! However, a lot of services, tours and restaurants are closed in summer. So please do not be disappointed, find out before hand which services are available, which tours are operating and which restaurants are open! So when some bargains sound too good to be true, you may want to find out what the catch is! Sometimes there is none, but……! Another way of saving is booking a longer stay. Weekly rates are often much cheaper!
