Trend for the summer: longer stays and more 'all-inclusive'

26 June, 2024

The summer of 2024 looks positive for Spanish hoteliers, although bookings generated for the month of June and number of overnight stays are still below 2023, according to the Dingus Data Hotel Report. The information gathered by the platform reveals a growth in stays of 8 to 14 days and a greater demand for all-inclusive accommodation, both in the Balearics and Canaries and on the mainland. 4-star hotels account for the highest volume of bookings.

According to the trends for June, Balearic hotels are under 10% away from reaching 2023 bookings. Half of them are concentrated in 4-star hotels and 20% in 3-star hotels. The number of nights is also lower than last year (1.55 million) but within 4% of matching them. In the Balearic Islands, couples represent almost 62% of the month’s bookings.

Stays of 3 to 7 nights predominate, although the percentage is lower than in May, while there is an increase in stays of 8 to 14 nights. The main type of accommodation contracted is half board (33%), followed by all-inclusive (27%) and bed and breakfast in 25% of the bookings.
