Benidorm and Costa Blanca hotels report busiest week of the summer as Spanish bookings keep them going

Benidorm and Costa Blanca hotels report best week of the summer as Spanish room bookings keep them goin

BENIDORM and Costa Blanca hotels have had their best week for room occupancy this summer according to the Hosbec hoteliers association.

Figures for July 19-25 show 67.5% occupancy in Hosbec member hotels that are open in the Benidorm area.

As in previous surveys, domestic bookings are keeping hotels in business, accounting for 85.2% of all Benidorm reservations.

Despite spring predictions that around half of the resort’s hotels might not open in July if mass UK tourism did not happen, Hosbec said that 78% of their members (88 hotels) are welcoming customers.

With some Benidorm hotels relying on the UK market, occupancy numbers for the rest of the Costa Blanca are higher.

Between July 19-25, the figure was 74.4%, a rise of nine points in a week.

The number of Hosbec member hotels open outside Benidorm stands at 94%, accounting for 48 establishments.

Regional politicians opposed to new tougher COVID-19 restrictions have claimed that hotels were now getting August cancellations because of curfews and reduced hospitality opening.
