Robinson Club Cala Serena, Mallorca

Robinson Club Cala Serena, which will open later this month.

28-02-2021

On March 20, the Robinson Club Cala Serena will open for the season. The regional director for Robinson, Holger Reinshagen, says that it was March 20 last year when the complex had to close because of the state of alarm and it will be the same date this year when it reopens.

Reinshagen explains that this is due to Tui's commitment to Mallorca. Tui fly Deutschland is scheduled to start flying to Mallorca from March 27; there will initially be two flights a week to Son Sant Joan Airport. "It is a business commitment, and even more so with Easter in the offing."

The possibility of there being Easter tourism certainly hasn't been ruled out. Alltours is another German tour operator which is making preparations. Some hotels offered by Alltours are the tour operator's own. Robinson Club is part of Tui.

There are other hotel groups which are now looking at opening in April and May, whereas previously they had been targeting June. The more positive noises from the German and UK governments are reasons.

The travel associations in Germany and the UK are indicating that the increased optimism surrounding holiday travel will benefit Mallorca, even if bookings at present may be behind certain other destinations. Hotel groups such as Barceló, Grupotel, Hipotels, Iberostar and Meliá are all signalling intentions to open in April and May. Demand will determine how many hotels open.

In Palma, the president of the hoteliers association, Javier Vich, notes that eighteen hotels are open at present. Between April and May, there is anticipation that this number will increase to around forty. "We are seeing that there is a positive trend."

No national government will take the risk of opening up too soon , to then have a massive increase in Covid infections again for the sake of some hotels and airlines that are pushing to soon regardless of the risks to people’s health . Instead of a vaccine passport , it would be wiser to make every tourist going to any country for holidays ( a first world problem ) take out an obligatory travel insurance policy to cover hospitalisation and repatriation to their home countries at any time a National government decides they need to leave at short notice plus a PCR test not older than 72 hours at travel start .

Are they mad? Who is allowing them to do this?

The islanders have NOT been vaccinated. The figures for the numbers of vaccines on their way to Mallorca are just appalling.

If Mallorca’s population is not vaccinated (which on current government data it has little hope of achieving) we will risk a repeat of last year. This would spell absolute disaster for the people and economy.
