The president of the Palma and Cala Major hoteliers association, Javier Vich, says that the current situation is very positive for five-star hotels, and especially for boutique hotels. Compared with last year, average price increases are around 25%.

Hotel data analysts Dingus point out that there are no offers. This explains the very high rates in July. The company's CEO, Jaume Monserrat, notes that it is interesting to see that one per cent of reservations are being made on the same day and at very high prices.

Occupancy rates are currently running at 90%, Monserrat adds that bookings are some 30% below what they were last July. "However, last-minute sales will change this, as there is great demand."
