The hotels in the Canary Islands have begun to carry out progressive openings in May and it is expected to continue the trend in the coming weeks to reach July 1st with 80% operational . The advance in the rate of vaccination and the lower restrictions on travel suggest "some movement" of visitors this summer and lead hotel chains to open establishments.
However, although expectations have improved in recent weeks and a certain reactivation is expected, the occupations expected by the sector are not very high.
They estimate that it will be between 40 and 50% and without operating one hundred percent.
As recognized by many of the chains consulted, the new openings do not respond so much to a "big pull" in demand but the need to offer customers different travel options and respond to all profiles. As an example, until now some chains had only open establishments for one segment of couples, with summer coming they are expanding the offer to receive families. Barceló will open three more hotels throughout June, with which it will be at 80%.
