Portugal & The Algarve
We love the Algarve here at loveholidays, and it's not just the cheap flights and hotels that we love. From endless sandy beaches under a sun that lasts all summer long (and beyond) the Algarve provides everything you need for a holiday in 5 star style. Now you just need the right hotel! Spa, or next to the beach? Cocktails, or Portuguese cuisine? We've got you covered for your 2017 or 2018 holidays.
Albufeira is the most popular resort area and has its fair share of 5 star hotels ideal for your next holiday. A resort of two halves, Albufeira has the bustling nightlife of a coastal resort and also the quiet peace of the old town, with cobbled streets and alleyway taverns.
Likewise, you can’t beat Sao Joao for a true experience of Algarve: a backdrop of white buildings, clears skies and its famous strip, Sao Joao is a great spot to enjoy all inclusive Portuguese hospitality. Another hot spot for 5 star hotels is Vilamoura, the height of Algarve luxury holidays, teeming with bars, shops and restaurants to match your luxury getaway. Vilamoura is known for its glitzy marina, large golf courses and its casinos. Ideal for 2018!
Just like its smaller sister, Lanzarote, Tenerife holidays offer great year-round weather and stunning natural landscapes. Costa Adeje, the most famous of the resort areas on Tenerife, offers up a fantastic selection of 5 star resorts that provide all the luxury and space that you deserve. The Adeje region is also home to Siam Park, the largest waterpark on Tenerife. Costa Adeje is a top pick for 2017 or 2018.
Although Costa Adeje is fantastic, don’t limit your search to this one resort. Tenerife has lots to offer! We recommend checking out Playa de las Americas for fantastic nightlife, dozens of restaurants and some seriously super 5 star hotels.
There’s more! Los Cristianos is considered one of the most popular resorts on the island because of its buzzing nightlife and larger-than-life nightclubs. Tenerife has something for every type of 5 star holiday: from the brash buzz of a nightclub, to the soothing waters of a secluded beach.
The Greek Islands are home to some incredible 5 star hotels. Whether you're staying on Mykonos, Crete or Corfu, we've got deals on flights and all inclusive hotels that'll make your head spin.
Settled right in the heart of the Aegean, Mykonos is a sophisticated Greek Island retreat. In Mykonos Town you'll find luxurious hotels with infinity pools and delicious restaurants.
Crete is like a world of its own. Typical Cretan hospitality matched with some of the best resorts for 5 star hotels in the Greek Islands, Crete might be the perfect pick for your next holidays. There's plenty to choose from around the Crete coastline, so picking your perfect hotel won't be too hard.
Corfu is an island of many faces. In buzzing Kavos you'll find a night-life that matches no other, but for a relaxing 5 star stay in a classy hotel, head to the quieter parts of Corfu such as Aghios Ioannis.
Halkidiki, although not a Greek Island, is a perfect mainland Greece holiday. Home to a gorgeous selection of 5 star hotels the 2 habitable peninsulas of Halkidiki, Sithonia and Kassandra (the third, Mount Athos, is a strict monastic society where you won't find a hotel!), are tranquil, natural settings for a luxury holiday.
Lanzarote is one of our top destinations for a 5 star luxury getaway in 2017 / 2018. This island isn't slim on its beach offering, and trust us: you'll find a gorgeous hotel to lay your head. This small Canary Island in the Atlantic is famous for its year-round West African weather and has been a top spot for tourists since the 1980s.
The Canaries have long been synonymous with a quick getaway (the flights aren't long!) to a beautiful climate, and now you can enjoy everything the Canaries offer, whilst also relaxing in 5 star luxury. Think Playa Blanca’s sandy beaches and seafront promenades, Costa Teguise with its quality restaurants and proximity to Lanzarote’s top attractions, and Puerto del Carmen, the oldest and best known resort on the island, which houses some of the top luxury hotels on the island along a staggering stretch of 4 Blue Flag beaches, including the pretty Playa Chica.
From Playa Blanca to Costa Teguise, Lanzarote holidays have what you're looking for.
If you want that amazing beach, we recommend the Canaries! Don't forget to check out Fuerteventura.
Finding it hard to pick between Majorca and Ibiza for a 2017 / 2018 holiday? Well, 5 star luxury in Majorca is hard to pin down – the island is covered in luxurious spots to hang your hat, and they differ in style, but they're affordable and just perfect for your next holiday.
We should start at the heart of the island, and a 5 star hotel along the Playa de Palma really does put you in the centre of the action. The sweeping bay of Palma is home to a series of fantastic luxury resorts very close to the capital, Palma de Mallorca. Imagine relaxing in a spa with a view of the stunning Palma Bay?
If you fancy something a little quieter, the more secluded area of Illetas is ideal for a totally relaxing 5 star holiday. Portals Nous is one of the most popular luxury resort areas on the island, with celebrity visitors such as Ronaldo, but it doesn’t necessarily come with an A-list price tag. There’s plenty of affordable 5 star hotels in close proximity to some of Portals Nous’ best spots, including its sandy beaches, great seaside restaurants and affluent nightlife.
Another fantastic spot for a peaceful 5 star hotel on this otherwise frenetic island, Alcudia in the north of the island is known for its excellent beach, Playa de Muro. Additionally, Alcudia has plenty of narrow streets, delicious restaurants and a calm atmosphere.
Other 5 star destinations
Sometimes it's too tricky to pick the right 5 star hotel without first investigating all your options. Where do we start?
The Costa Blanca is home to Benidorm, Alicante and the golden coast of Javea and Moraira. If that's a lot to take in, just check out Benidorm and its selection of 5 star hotels for your 2018 holidays.
When we say 'Riviera' what do you think? Does your mind jump to Italy? If so, maybe you should consider Croatia as the next spot for a 5 star hotel. The Dubrovnik Riviera is home to some of the most picturesque coast in Europe, and the hotel's match the beauty. The Istrian Riviera in northern Croatia is home to the fantastic resort of Pula, with access to many of Croatia's islands.
Paphos, a city on the west coast of Cyprus, is a historical goldmine and home to a varied muddle of holidaymakers. Pick your favourite 5 star hotel and book your flights to Paphos - the gorgeous Paphos Town is known to cater for British tourists, but the entire region retains its unique Cypriot identity. If you want luxury, if you want history, if you want hospitality, Cyprus is waiting.
