Full-Board vs. Half-Board:

Understanding the difference between full-board and half-board accommodations is key to making the most of your winter escape. Full-board typically includes all meals, snacks and drinks, ensuring you're pampered throughout your stay. On the other hand, half-board provides meals (usually breakfast and dinner), leaving room for exploration and dining adventures outside the resort.
