The Hotel Playasol Mare Nostrum opened its doors on 7 July. This is good news considering that this hotel of the Playasol Ibiza Hotels chain is the one with the largest number of rooms, 520 to be precise. The establishment, which remained closed in 2020, thus joins the group's anticipated opening plan, which will have a total of 2,489 rooms for sale at the end of the first half of July. The commercial director of the chain, David Muñoz, says that the British Prime Minister's announcement to include the Balearic Islands in the list of safe destinations has led to "a record number of bookings" from the UK. "The share of the British market has tripled in recent weeks, although the domestic market continues to lead sales," adds Muñoz.
In this sense, the Ibizan chain, which has the largest number of places on the island, reopened the Cala Tarida hotel and the Riviera and My Tivoli establishments on 25th June and 2nd July respectively, and is also preparing to reopen the Marco Polo I and II hotels located in the San Antonio area on Friday 9th July. Playasol has also announced the reopening of the Club Maritim hotel on 14th July. According to the commercial director, "in just two weeks, we have increased the volume of rooms available by 79%. We are at a great advantage due to our agility in the preparation of our establishments. With a lot of effort from the operations management and our entire team, we have decided to bring forward openings in order to absorb the national demand". One of the main protagonists of the increase in bookings is the reactivation of the activity of the tour operator Jet2holidays, which returned to the Balearic Islands on 1 July. We hope that operators such as Loveholidays and On The Beach will also drive this positive development in bookings in the short term," David said.
Our work is focused on making Fomento del Turismo de Ibiza an increasingly open forum for debate that draws together a wide range of interests, agrees strategies and stimulates professionals, workers, companies and organisations from all the island's economic and social spheres to benefit from membership.
We want Fomento de Ibiza to be an open forum for debate, one that agglutinates common interests, reaches a consensus as to the strategies that should be followed, and encourages professionals, workers, companies and entities from all the island’s economic and social walks of life to work together
