After a difficult December, when the Canary Islands managed to keep hotels open thanks to a small group of tourists, the number of guests will drop to almost zero in the coming days. It wasn’t that bad yet.
In December, some domestic and foreign tourists stayed in the Canary Islands, and hoteliers even managed to slightly increase their prices, traditionally Christmas and New Year’s Eve are the most expensive season of the year. But the guests left and there were very few new ones. What’s worse, there are almost no bookings for the next week, the number of guests will drop to almost zero, reports the Canarian Weekly portal.
President of the FEHT Hotel Association, Jos Mara Manarica, predicts that more facilities will be closed in the coming days.
This is confirmed by the hoteliers’ announcements. The RIU chain announced last week that out of 18 hotels in the UK, only seven will be open, the others will be closed. Hoteliers hope the situation will improve in the summer, thanks in part to vaccines. As Manarica said, the previous years were very good, which is why companies should survive by then.
The CEO admits that individual properties run by families are for sale, but emphasizes that this does not apply to large hotels. The portal, however, cites anonymous sources, which inform that investors looking for opportunities appeared in the Canaries, and some owners decided to sell their properties, although they will still manage them.
