It's not as cheap as my previous deal for school holidays but these are direct flights and it's for a family of 5. This time it's 10 nights in Ibiza in a 2 bedroomed apartment in Cala Portinax, the Del Ray.

You'll fly out from Manchester with Ryanair and return with Monarch. The flight times aren't the best but the flights are cheap.

*Breakdown*

Book Manchester to Ibiza with Ryanair £119.95 for 5 @ Ryanair

Book Ibiza to Manchester with Monarch €195/£167.54

Book accommodation @ Travelrepublic £1185

Book transfers are Holiday Extras £127.20

Total £1599.69/£319.94pp

Not sure why people have voted cold on this? This is bang smack in the middle of the holidays, with a decent sized apartment and a short flight so idea for families. Hot from me

I have not voted, but what would make me wary without looking into it further, would be

1) the costs of luggage for a 10 day holiday (never used ryanair, but they seem to have a bad rep for hidden extras)

2) the nightmare stories you hear about privately booked bus transfers (god knows what Portinax would cost if you just jumped in a taxi at the airport, it's at the other end of the island).

3)Also is this exempt from the hotel room tax?

4) If you're not booking all inclusive, then what will the exchange rate be like next summer? At least two meals are covered though.

As I said, not voted.

Portinax is a quiet village, can't think think where the nearest reasonable supermarket is (post office is cheap for booze though). Hope 3 kids are happy with the beach, a few swings/slides, and I assume an apartment block pool, because with no kids clubs and evening entertainment there could be some grumbles.

Luggage can be added on at an additional cost with both Monarch and Ryanair. I think Monarch hand luggage allowance is 10kg. I haven't included it here as in August I've no idea what a family of 5 need luggage wise. I mean do kids need 10kg each? I did two weeks in Japan on less than 10kg of luggage but each to their own.

I'm unsure on the city tax, but I know lots of European destinations, eg Italy have this which is normally settled upon arrival at the hotel. Of course you can change the hotel for an AI one, and you could hire a car. I think it depends on what facilities want, some want an AI resport where they don't need to move for a week, others prefer to get out and about. The hotel website gives some indication of what is nearby and activities but there appears to be shops nearby for food and drink too. The hotel webaite is here

The transfers via bus with holiday taxis have good review and are on cash back sites. You can also look at transfers with hoppa.com or similar.
