Looking for some Easter Sun

Options
Myself and the missus are looking for a bit of sun to chill out over the easter break. We don't want an 18-30s style place, but nor do we want to be in the middle of nowhere (cheesey 80s places and good food are our normal vices :)) As it's a bit of a chillout holiday I don't really want to go anywhere where I will be badgered a lot, so I'm thinking the likes of Tunisia is out of the equation?

We're looking to leave somewhere between the 8th and 15th April from either Liverpool or Manchester, with a budget around £300pp. Looking to book in the next day or so, before she nags me to death!

Thanks in advance!

    Me too, I love the haggling and the banter but Kev hates it, He gets so annoyed hence we went to Cyprus and not Egypt.
    I actualy thought he was going to punch one guy last time we were in Turkey...lol

    Thanks for the replies; I don't think flying on the 7th is an option, but I'll double check what time she escapes work.

    I don't mind haggling/banter usually, but this particular holiday is just to eat, drink and sun ourselves to de-stress a bit.. although there's always a chance someone might want to trade a couple of camels for the missus.... ;)
