    So we have decided to go abroad in the summer. Three of us want to go B+B where as the rest want to go full board.

    Us three don't really stay around the hotel much, we want to go off in the day and do our own thing, because well for me personally, I get ******* bored after two days by the pool. Obviously they can do whatever they want, but its pointless us paying for meals were not going to be there for and then having to buy food out.

    But then again I understand its cheaper for them that are the stay by the pool type.

    So how exactly would you amazing people go about solving this?

    Can you not arrange it so that each person pays for their separate food/going out arrangements?

    Or do you have to get the whole "package deal" thing?

    I wouldn't view it so much as an "argument" as I would a "decision time debate". Think about it; you can't see the point in paying for stuff you're not going to use. It's common sense. It would be like paying for your girlfriend to go on the pill after she's told you she's getting the implant (I do love my analogies ).

    I'd try putting it across to them that there's no point on paying for something that everyone won't enjoy/use. There must be some form of happy medium somewhere.

    Plus there must be public pools near the place you are going? I know it's hardly going to be as fancy as the hotel pool or whatever, but a pool is a pool, and it saves splashing out (pun unintended) for extra stuff you're not going to make use of.

    It's an argument because apparently were being "awkward" and "messing it all up."

    I am happy to pay to go to a decent hotel that I won't use because if there going to use it a lot then fair enough. But paying for food I won't eat, no.

    Might just go away the 3 of us as a lads holiday instead, would probably end up being more of a laugh tbh.

    Ahh, I assume the women want to stay by the pool and the guys want to go elsewhere? Makes sense if so.

    Do you have to pay for the food that is provided by the hotel then? I thought they would've included the meals as separate. You could always ask the hotel to not include x amount of meals a day for the people that aren't going to be there at that specific time.

    Well the girls and the ones that have boyfriends, them. But you can tell they would much rather come and get hammered .

    The thing is the hotels they seem to have found, you can either go B+B or full board, there seems no option to choose.

    You can't split up the friendship group so that some go B+B and some go full board then? Or does that mean that each party will still have to pay for all the meals?

    Thats only thing I can think of tbh, but the girls are such *****es, all I will get is "you might as bloody well go on holiday on your own if your not going to the same hotel."

    But if it means I can come back trollied at 4am with some random local, then so be it :yep:.
