In other resort areas, there are certain hotels that stay open because of cycling. For example, Team Ineos is currently based in Puerto Alcudia. And it is cycling that has helped with earlier opening of hotels. The federation says that almost a third of hotels opened at some point during February this year. The forecast is for over 40% of hotels to be open in February 2024.

It should be noted that the federation's hotels are predominantly in resorts, while it doesn't represent all of the island's hotels by any means. In the interior, there are establishments that stay open and which are, for example, members of the association for small hotels.
