Hotels reach the end of September with bookings for the month showing a one percent improvement on the same period last year. According to the Balearic Minister for Tourism, which canvassed the equivalent of 136'000 hotel rooms, bookings rose this month across the Balearics. A spokesperson for the Ministry described the findings as “very good” and that the late spurt in the season will help to compensate for the very slow and sparce start to the summer season. The Balearics is the autonomous region with the highest number of bed space in Spain, 500'000 .
