Hotel occupancy rises in Alicante


HOTEL occupancy in Alicante grew by 4 per cent in May compared to the same month in 2014. According to the Provincial Association of Hotels of Alicante (APHA) this growth led to a 75.8 per cent average occupancy.
The figure was higher than April where, despite the Easter holidays, average occupancy reached 68.3 per cent.
APHA said the figures for last month showed the best May results in years and led to an increase in job creation which confirms the importance of the role of services in economic recovery.
The two months of increases means hoteliers in Alicante face the high season with optimism that occupation rates will continue to rise.
The increase is in part thanks to the expansion of flights numbers coming in to Alicante-Elche airport.
Of the origin of tourists staying overnight in hotels during April and May over half (58-16 per cent) were international visitors.
