If you want to go on a self-catering holiday, there are some specific things that you can do to make it better and easier for you. First, you want to make sure what suites and other arrangements are available where you want to go. If a fancy, full-service hotel is in the same price range most people would want that instead. However, not everyone feels that way. Some people want these self-catering suites because they can accommodate a lot of people so an entire family or big group of friends can stay together without being split up into a bunch of different hotel rooms. This is rather important for most people. Find out before you book something, how many people it can accommodate and whether you can get it for the time you want for a good rate.
Depending on when during the year you're planning on taking your holiday, you might find that you can move it by a couple of weeks and get a much lower price because you will have moved into the off season for tourism. If you can go during that off season you can get lower prices and sometimes other added benefits that you wouldn't be able to get otherwise, including the area being less crowded with other tourists.
You should also be sure you understand what 'self catering' actually means so that you can be prepared for your stay and bring anything that you need to have with you. You don't want to show up unprepared for your holiday, because you could end up having a bad time. For instance, if you have pets that you'll be bringing (a lot of people like to travel with their dogs, for example) you'll also need to find out whether they will be welcome there, if you need to pay extra, and if there are any special rules or regulations that go along with bringing a pet on your self-catering holiday. If they are not welcome, you will need to make other arrangements for your pets. Get those things out in the open so that you don't have a nasty surprise when you arrive and are expecting to relax. You should also do a little bit of research into the area, so you know where you can go to eat and what you might want to see while you're on holiday.
