If they want a guaranteed but of nightlife... for their age... then encourage them in the direction of Puerto del Carmen. 15/20 minutes from the airport.

Book the flights and hotel separate to save pennies (for more drinkies). Look for Jable apartments, or Elena apartments. Bang in the centre of town... oodles of bars within walking distance... and the beach a short stroll.

Centro Atlantico will still be lively enough for them in April. It's not Ibiza... but they'll have a cracking time, and still be able to get served within 5 minutes.

Yes... Jable bermudas sound perfect.

Los Mojones is really really nice... and I would stay there myself if I was on holiday (as a late 30's lady and her fella) but for the age group of the boys... I think the Jable would be better placed for them.

To be honest - the dates then won't make a huge amount of difference. Take the cheapest... and trust that the lads will have a great time! The summer will be busier... and as the 18-30 holidays start at the beginning of June in Jable... they may struggle to get a bargain during that period.

Send em over...

However... as you know yourself - this is no Ibiza. So make sure the boys know this hon. ;-)

May, June is fine! We always go last weekend of June for a boys weekend away - started doing it about 6 years ago. The flights go crazy at the end of June so you should be able to get returns from under £170 at worst from Manchester or Gatwick.

For boys stuff we often get a round of golf in, but isn't cheap, go karting at Playa Honda - would give directions if i could but it is hopelessly confusing to find! All sorts.

We are based in Playa blanca then cab it into Carmen for a couple of nights if we want to go out. Prefer being somewhere quieter. Just depends on the budget and what they want.
