Nothing could live up to HPB

Nothing could live up to HPB

My parents joined HPB in 1998 at Blore Hall in Derbyshire, after reading an advert in a Sunday newspaper. My father Gordon was attracted to HPB because it was “worry-free”, unlike owning a private holiday home. HPB offered our family a high standard of accommodation, extensive facilities, flexibility and always the important comfy armchair! While my parents enjoyed visiting La Reserva de Biniorella in Majorca and the UK Bond properties, my husband Stewart and I were also falling in love with our favourite Bond destinations. Our growing family of varying ages were all catered for and happy.

Our holiday to Rocha Brava in Portugal with all four of the grandparents was quite something; Stewart and I didn’t see our daughters for the entire week. Only at bedtime! We all had an amazing holiday.

We’ve visited El Balcón de Santa Ana in La Gomera some 15 times! El Balcón was not completed when we first visited in 2000 and we have watched the site develop and mature. La Gomera is truly special and we all have wonderful memories of times there.

Circumstances meant we left the Bond in May 2011 but following three years of hotels and package holidays, we decided to reinvest in January 2014. We’d tried all-inclusive, self-catering, and all the variations. Our children constantly asked if we could go back to HPB, because holidaying was not the same. Nothing could live up to it. We had been completely spoilt by HPB holidays! We missed and craved the flexibility, the high standard of accommodation (we need two bedrooms), relaxed environments, safety and warm welcomes upon arrival – in a nutshell we were HPB through and through. The children wanted the familiarity of it all again and the fabulous facilities. As a mother I wanted the large comfortable apartment back and to know my children were safe and happy so I could relax.
