While the results show that a swimming pool and Wi-Fi are the ultimate most wanted features, it also highlighted that males and females prioritise different features and facilities. Wi-Fi
was prioritised by a massive 50% of men, but less than a third of women, while a substantial 18% of men want a gym and sporting facilities, compared to less than 10% of women.
The results also appear to show that women like the finer things in life, with 11% of them prioritising luxury bath products
(compared to 6% of men). Family owned
hotels were a surprise hit with men, being ranked second most favoured hotel type, while women only ranked them in 4th place overall.
While 13% of women voted a room with a view
as their top requirement, a massive 72% of them wanted to see the sea compared to only 63% of men who opted for the watery view.
Just over a quarter of women (26%) wanted the view to be of a cityscape or landmark, compared to over a third of men (36%) who chose the urban outlook.
