Benidorm hotels reached 85 % occupancy in June

Hotels in Benidorm improved their occupancy rates on 2009 during the second half of June this year and thereby recorded an overall occupancy rate of some 85.40 percent in the last two weeks. This meant that the overall monthly average for June was 82.3 percent, which is half a point less than last year. This means that the first two weeks of the month were still slower than in 2009, according to Hotel Association of Benidorm and the Costa Blanca.

A report from the hotel association reveals that national tourists from Spain represent 48.4 percent of the occupancy levels recorded in the hotels in Benidorm in June, and 51.2 percent of guests came from abroad. Among these foreigners, Britain remains the largest source of tourists with 38.4 percent. The hotel association indicated that this confirms the stabilization of sales in the UK compared with other periods of the year when the British tourism market fell between 20 to 25 percent.

Figures for occupancy rates in the second half of June show the same results as in the first half of the month as far as the type of accommodation is concerned. Two-star hotels were those with the highest occupancy rates reaching 92.6 percent, while three star establishments achieved 86.1% and four star hotels achieved 83.2% occupancy.

The forecast for the first two weeks of July is 76.7 percent, although the hotel association stated that with the usual rush of ” last minute reservations ” it is likely they will reach figures similar to those of 2009, with occupancy levels of 81.24 percent.

According to Ebookers.com a double room is available in the four star Hotel Princesa Benidorm from Friday 16th July to Sunday 18th for a total price of £180.87 including breakfast. The same room can be booked full board for £210.29.  The hotel has 226 rooms, it is only 400 metres from the beach and 5 minutes away from the shopping area and restaurants in Benidorm.
