If you are planning your summer holiday and are looking for a destination that offers sunshine and great beaches by day and varied entertainment by night, Portugal and Tenerife should be near the top of your list - but which is the best one to visit?
As with any country, there are certain places that are hotspots for nightlife and others that are better suited to a quiet break away from the hustle and bustle, so here are a few suggestions if you want to have plenty to do once the sun goes down.
The hub of Tenerife's thriving nightlife is Playa Las Americas on the Costa Adeje. Here, you will find clubs, pubs and bars aplenty, giving you dozens of options every evening.
In fact, if you're looking for a holiday where you can dance the night away in pulsating clubs filled with other revellers, this is the place to come. During the summer months, big-name DJs often make an appearance too, so it's always worth checking what's going on before you travel.
Holidays in the Costa Adeje don't have to be about busy nightclubs, though, there are plenty of quieter spots where you can enjoy a chilled glass of wine or classy cocktail in stunning surroundings.
Take Los Cristianos, for instance. This nearby resort has developed right next to the beach, so you're bound to be able to find a bar with sea views if you want to unwind in style.
You're also likely to come across many places with live music here too - great if you want to sit back and enjoy a performance rather than slipping on your dancing shoes.
Nights out in Tenerife don't only have to be for adults, either, with plenty of things to do if you're booking a break with your children.
Going for a fantastic meal is always a nice way to spend an evening and with the plethora of restaurants available along the Costa Adeje, you're sure to find somewhere that suits even the fussiest member of your family.
For some good-natured competition, why not visit Harley's Superbowl - an American-style bowling alley? It's open until midnight every day and if you arrive in the early evening, you might even be in time to take advantage of one of its special offers.
Portugal certainly isn't lacking in nightlife either, especially in the popular Algarve region on the country's coast.
If you plan Portugal holidays here, you'll be able to party the night away in Albufeira, chill out in the bars by the Portimao Marina or head to the cinema for a quieter evening.
Clubbers are bound to want to be based near the heart of the action, in which case staying in Albufeira is the way to go.
The main hub after dark is the Sao Joao district, where there are late-night clubs, bars and restaurants, all hoping to attract you with their pumping music and bright, neon signs.
Don't be surprised if places don't fill up until late; remember, in the Mediterranean many people have a siesta in the afternoon and will often eat dinner after 8pm or 9pm, so bars and clubs will usually get busy after midnight.
If you'd prefer to stay somewhere a little quieter, the resort of Praia de Rocha could be perfect.
There is no lack of evening entertainment here, but it is normally a bit more relaxed than in nearby Albufeira.
Many of the bars in this pretty resort host live music, while the area around Portimao Marina is ideal if you want to indulge in some people-watching while sipping on a cool drink. It's also lots of fun to watch the expensive yachts in the harbour as you soak up the atmosphere.
Families are well-catered for in the Algarve too and, if you book your break with Sovereign, you are likely to find there is plenty to keep you and your little ones happy in the hotel, with several restaurants to choose from for your evening meal.
