Costa Del Sol hotels are experiencing a record breaking summer.  Occupancy rates in June were 5.7% higher than last year’s record breaking figure.  Bookings for July are also set to break previous records, potentially reaching 90% occupancy. Javier Hernandez is Vice President of the hoteliers association says this summer is looking good. “We have ended June with 87.8% occupancy, which is 5.7% more than last year. It has been a spectacular month. And for August we have 86.4% of the rooms booked, compared to the 88% reached in 2023.”

During July foreign visitors will account for 65% of hotel bookings.  The tourism boom will continue to have a positive impact on the local economy as spending in restaurants, bars, and other tourism focussed busineeses increases.  The high hotel occupancy rates are also boosting employment opportunities.
