MENORCA is the most expensive tourist region in Spain, with an average weekly accommodation price rising to 377 euros.
In comparing other Spanish tourist regions that specialise in the three sought after elements - sun, sea and sand, the Costa del Sol follows closely behind Menorca (costing 358 euros) and then Fuerteventura (353 euros).

This data has been unveiled by a study carried out at Girona Univeristy, where researchers Josep Maria Espinet and Modesto Fluvià analysed 1442 hotels. Their research has discovered that during certain times of the year the average hotel price in Menorca practically doubles those prices that can be found at Costa del Maresme. This region being the cheapest in Spain (201 euros), followed by Costa Brava (256 euros), Tenerife (270 euros) and Costa Dorada (270 euros).

Furthermore, if you take into account the cost of hotel supplements (for example, having air conditioning and a television) the price rises by 32.3 percent in Menorca. This drastically contrasts with only a 0.3 percent price rise for hotels in Costa del Sol. A garden or a terrace is the second most costly supplement (9 percent increase).

If you want accommodation with sea views, you will be paying an average price increase of 8.6 percent, this changes depending where you are (0.7 percent in Costa del Maresme and 49 percent in Formentera). The chance to practice sporting activities will entail a 5.2 percent rise in hotel prices, again with regional differences (0.8 percent in Costa Dorada and 9.3 percent in Costa del Sol). Whilst, to have a parking space available will add 3.3 percent to the accommodation cost.
