Benidorm high occupancy for hotels
HOTEL occupancy in Benidorm is expected to be between 75 and 85 per cent over Easter.
The highest levels are expected between today (Thursday) and Sunday, and at the time of writing, the Benidorm and Costa Blanca Hotel Association was hoping for some last minute bookings to improve figures.
The association also pointed out that Benidorm was the most sought for holiday destination on hotel comparison site Trivago amongst the Spanish for Easter holidays. It is also amongst the most popular destinations all year round, along with Madrid, Barcelona and London.
The President of the Association, Antonio Mayor, said that Benidorm is the only tourist city on the Iberian Peninsula which has all services operating.
“All the accommodation, leisure and complementary services are open and running, whereas other destinations haven’t opened for the season yet,” he said.
The fact that Benidorm is open “all year round” means that there are plenty of tourists even out of peak times such as Easter. Almost half of those tourists come from abroad, and many have headed to Benidorm in the first few months of this year to escape the cold weather in the UK.
High temperatures are expected on the Costa Blanca and Valencia at Easter, in contrast will most other parts of Spain where rain is expected on and off until Wednesday. Although some showers are expected in the area, they will not be heavy on the coast, the State Meteorological Agency reports.
