Hi, we've narrowed down our choice in PP to these two hotels and would like to ask your advice. We're a family traveling with 3 adults and 2 kids ages 11 and 13. Having a pool is essential - we are hoping to sightsee from early a.m. then return for some pool time at midday. We'd like a place with some character, that feels like PP as opposed to someplace that could just as easily be some other country.
Both Billabong and Kabiki have gotten great reviews here (Kabiki somewhat less b/c they are only opened a year or so). Both kid friendly; Kabiki somewhat higher in price than Billabong. Kabiki seems to have really large beds :) is this the case? What about location, being able to walk around town and markets, and what are the neighborhoods like where these hotels are located? Anything else we should be thinking about? We will not be eating at the hotel. Our style is to travel low key, talk with as many local people as we can.
Thanks in advance for your opinions. It's wonderful to be able to get ideas and hear other travelers' experience on this forum!
