Long-stay hotels

Cathy's verdict
When a fortnight isn’t enough, long hotel stays can attract discounts that make them more of a bargain than an indulgence. For over-50s travelling alone, single rooms in Saga’s hotels usually cost the same as doubles for three weeks or more, with all-inclusive options in Spain, Madeira, Cyprus and further afield.

Saga Holidays says

Sometimes a week in the sun just isn’t quite long enough – especially during the chilly British winter. That’s why we offer longer stays at a number of our European hotels. What’s better than spending 3, or even 4 weeks in the sun?

  • all-inclusive
  • no single supplement in selected hotels
  • over-50s only

We have many single rooms available with no supplement; you can choose four weeks for the price of three, or three weeks for the price of two, and you’ll be on the same board basis throughout your holiday.

Our long-stay holidays provide good value as they include so much in the price. Return flights, transfers, at least 20kg of checked-in luggage, and a Saga Host are all included in the price. In addition, all hotel stays of 14 nights or more include four excursions to explore the local sites and sights.

Each hotel in our long-stay programme has been handpicked for its facilities, location and service, and at selected hotels you can enjoy features that are exclusive to Saga guests, such as a dedicated VIP lounge, a free bar or complimentary access to the spa.

Experience a slice of authentic Spain at Hotel Port Denia – a firm customer favourite for many years. Just 50 yards from the beach, this 280-bedroom hotel is ideal for exploring Denia at leisure or enjoying the weather beside the outdoor pool.

Occidental Isla Cristina in Huelva is a great choice for walkers, birdwatchers and photographers, thanks to its excellent location close to Marismas de Islas Cristina and Doñana National Park.

On the island of Madeira, the stylish five-star Enotel Lido has a superb location, with direct access to the seafront and stunning Atlantic views. It’s also within easy walking distance of the centre of Funchal if you wish to explore independently.

Alexander the Great Beach Hotel near Paphos harbour on the sun-kissed island of Cyprus is one of our highest rated beachfront hotels. With an enticing sandy beach nearby, a tempting outdoor pool, and an indulgent spa, it’s easy to see why.

On all our long-haul holidays, we include return chauffeur service from your home to your departure airport or complimentary airport parking.
