Torrevieja Tourist Accommodation Bookings Up by Almost 20% Over Easter
Torrevieja’s tourism councillor, Fanny Serrano, has claimed a 16-percent increase in tourist accommodation bookings during the Easter period compared to last year’s Easter holiday dates.
With Easter being later this year, a rise was anticipated, and that has been echoed by neighbouring municipalities like Orihuela. Serrano said that the average occupancy figure for three and four star hotels was over 83 percent, whilst regulated holiday homes and apartment figures stood at 90 percent.
Her figures were backed up by a 16-percent increase in water usage over the 10-day period compared to 2016, with Serrano stating that despite Easter falling later this year, the temperatures over the period were the same as last year.
“Temperatures do affect water consumption,” commented Serano, “and this comparison allows us a meaningful reflection on the increase in holiday accommodation bookings compared to last year.”
