HOSBEC confirmed that the Costa Blanca was the region’s first tourist area to return to 2019 occupancy figures.

The hoteliers’ association revealed that a breakdown of its Costa Blanca statistics showed that the 70 per cent occupancy during the first fortnight of May was three percentage points higher than in 2019.

These figures did not include Benidorm, whose hotels and tourist accommodation were still below 2019’s, although Hosbec secretary general Nuria Montes pointed out that its 75 per cent occupancy accounted for 50 per cent of tAlicante province’s total.

“The hoped-for ‘express recovery’ is a reality,” Montes said, “but although things are looking good we still have to sell the summer.”
