The Majorcan Hotel Federation has confirmed that officially, all inclusive hotels account for a 15 percent share of bed nights on the island.
However, the data these figures are based on date back to 2010, which is when the Ministry for Tourism carried out its last survey.
According to the results of that survey, there are at least 165 hotels, with 81'078 bedrooms, which operate as all inclusive complexes on the island but since then, as the restaurant association claimed this week, that figure has increased and there are hotels which unofficially offer all inclusive options on check in. However, the hotel federation said that all inclusive resorts are here to stay because they are popular with the family market.
