Forecast gloomy for hotels on the Costa del Sol

costa del sol hotels august

By Helen Pierpoint

HOTELS on the Costa del Sol are bracing themselves for the worst August in a decade for bookings.

It has been predicted that most hotels won’t even reach 80 per cent room occupation during the peak season.

Many hotel owners are worried about the booking vacuum, as rooms reserved for August account for as much as 20 per cent of their annual turnover.

A travel association based in Andalucia has blamed the reservations drop in part to a ‘great push’ by countries such as Tunisia and Egypt to claw back tourists after recent social and political conflicts.

Bookings for Tunisia have increased by 49 per cent this summer and those for Egypt by 24 per cent.


  1. Some need to just try being more enterprising and not just sitting on their @rses whinging. Smile at customers and think positive. Negativity breeds negativity. Get the paint brush out too while they’re at it!
