Hoteliers in Majorca may opt out of the Imserso winter holiday programme for Spanish pensioners. The president of the association in Playa de Palma, Francisco Marín, says that local hoteliers don't see themselves being part of the scheme. Although the pensioner tourists give the resort areas some atmosphere over the winter months, the programme isn't profitable because of the costs that hotels incur. There needs to be, he insists, a rethink by the national government and an increase in the level of subsidies.
