Vacation is a time to relax, recharge, and indulge in ways we don’t normally do at home. Everyone needs a vacation from time to time. But indulgence comes with a price tag, and as much as we allow ourselves to spend a little more on vacation, that doesn’t wipe away the hard reality of financial obligations back home.
One of the first choices to make during vacation planning is the hotel, and there is definitely a temptation to save money by compromising on quality. But you don’t have to! We have found 11 luxurious hotels that will surprise you with incredible amenities for a very reasonable price. No matter where you ultimately choose to vacation, you are going to want to see each of these jaw-dropping properties.
1. The W Hotel in Guanacaste, Costa Rica
Costa Rica is a gorgeous oceanside destination with an exchange rate quite favorable to Americans, but dollars are accepted most places, too. At the W Hotel (a Marriott property), you can enjoy over-the-top pampering with locally-inspired treatments at the hotel’s spa. Private beach access is another luxurious bonus.
But you’ll really feel like royalty when you take advantage of the W’s Whatever/Whenever premium upgrade. That means you can ask the front desk for anything you want, anything at all, and staff will go above and beyond to provide it for you. All this is offered for a very reasonable $250 per night.
