Last month, Balearic hotels were half empty. The first four months of this year has seen hotel bookings fall by 20 per cent and the slump in the Balearics has pulled national hotel bookings down by five per cent. So far this year, the Balearics has not proved to be Spain's top destination. In fact it has slipped back into fourth place behind Andalucia, the Canaries and Cataluña. But while the Balearics have struggled, other areas of Spain have seen hotel bookings rise, especially in the north. In April the busiest resorts were Benidorm, San Bartolomé de Tirajana and Torremolinos. For the moment hotel bookings in Spain for June and July are down by as much as eight per cent.
