Remember when the tourist season was nearly all year round, well let’s do it again.
The earlier Easter means that hoteliers aren’t willing to risk having a few days in April when they have occupancy but will be mostly empty for the rest of the month.
Another record tourism season was being forecast; the Council of Majorca generated more confusion with its rentals zones; and the pine of Pollensa provoked a review of health and safety.
Next year's season is due to be even longer. We reported on a hotel that has been staying open all year since the early '70s. Palma's politics were keeping the Christmas lights off. There were awards and there was a story about Ava Gardner.
