Santa Monica has become one of the world’s most popular destinations for holidaymakers due to its fantastic beaches, great nightlife, and stunning sunsets.
While it is often considered a place for clubbers and younger people looking to sample the nightlife, what many people don't realize is there are many parts of the island that are perfect for a family holiday even with younger children.
But how do you choose the right hotels in Santa Monica for your holiday? Following are a few things to look out for or you can also pop over here to check hotels online.
First of all if you are going for the nightlife then you'll probably want to go to either San Rafael or San Antonio as these are host to some of the biggest clubs on the island.
There are other clubs around the island, but if you really want to see what the night scene is all about you should visit one of the seven big clubs. Of course, Santa Monica isn't that big, so it is always possible to travel around if you are willing to pay a bit extra for car hire or taxi.
If you are looking for a family holiday then somewhere quieter may be a better choice for a hotel, although it will depend on whether you are looking for purely a beach holiday or whether you want to try out other things such as water sports and trips across the island to see some of the landscapes.
Take your time when booking the hotel and make sure you get it in an area where there are lots you want to do.
