Britons spend around £5million every year to go on holiday. Channel 5 followed a bunch of sunbathers at the Guitart resort in Spain.
Just two hours from Barcelona, thousands of holidaymakers travel to the resort on Spain’s Costa Brava.
Located in Lloret de Mar, the hotel can host more than 2,000 guests at a time, who can get 500 bottles of spirits every week.
Every year, as many as 60,000 guests travel to the hotel to experience the classic all-inclusive lifestyle.
This year, love was in the air as hotel staff prepared a wedding banquet for a happy local Spanish couple.
Rob, Kerry and their children were on a family trip after they tied the knot at home in Surrey and watched the married couple.
Although they thought the bride was beautiful, Rob said Kerry had been even more beautiful on her wedding day.
In this week’s episode, another unusually romantic celebration took place at the resort.
Dave and Helen from Coventry were engaged but not yet married after struggling to pay for their wedding.
Dave said, “We had to postpone, even though we didn’t really want to.”
The couple decided to book a vacation instead of saving for their big day. However, they decided to organize their own mini wedding on the Spanish beach.
They used a snorkel as a veil and some anklets for the rings. With a willing flower girl, the couple was ready for their sham marriage.
Although their stand-in celebrant asked for ice cream for her shifts, the couple quickly managed to escape.
But while some guests felt the love, others felt the resort was much more suitable for families.
One guest said: “Pure fun for kids!”
Another added: “Because it’s a hot country and running around after three kids, you just don’t have much energy.”
The hotel had plenty of facilities for children, including a huge range of swimming pools and a kids’ club.
While most guests were there to enjoy a holiday of a lifetime, some couldn’t help but miss the comforts of home and have a classic British moan.
One said: “I miss being able to lie out and not worry about missing breakfast!”
Some parents were disappointed to learn that their children were missing their toys and XBoxes at home.
Other families were happy to go on vacation together because they didn’t see each other much.
The Secret Life of the Holiday Resort can be seen on Channel 5 at 10pm on Sundays.
