AFTER a record number of visitors last year, Costa del Sol tourism figures have started 2015 getting better and better.

The latest figures from the National Statistics Institute (INE) show the number of hotel visitors in January, with Malaga Province registering a 10 per cent increase compared to the same month in 2014, with a total of 199,246 visits.

Elias Bendodo, head of the Costa del Sol tourism board, said that this was the third highest amount ever registered in January and the increase was higher than in both Andalucia (9.6 per cent) and Spain as a whole (7.5 per cent).

More hopeful signs came from hotel employment figures with a total of 7,322 people working at hotels within the province, 447 more than in January 2014.
