The hotel and non-hotel establishments associated with Ashotel announced that accommodation bookings for Easter in Tenerife are already at 79.31%, only 3% less than the estimated numbers for Easter 2019, the pre-pandemic reference year.
In the case of the other islands in the province, La Palma estimates bookings to be at 73.17%, a percentage very similar to 2019 (76%) and last year for the same period (75.69% ). The island, however, is in a rather complicated situation, due in part to the fact that it keeps more than 4,000 tourist beds off the market, located in the area of Puerto Naos, Los Llanos de Aridane, which are closed due to the negative influence of harmful gases from the 2021 eruption.
For its part, La Gomera is experiencing a positive performance, with reservations already at 80.27% for the Easter week, slightly less than two points than the estimate for the same period in 2019 (82%), but two points above the forecast made in 2022 (78%).
Finally, the island of El Hierro already estimates bookings to be at 80.7% of capacity, which means that it's five points less than the forecasts made for Easter 2019 (85%) and seven points less than last year (87%).
Despite not yet reaching the data for 2019, the truth is that the number of "last minute" holiday bookings has increased, a practice that has grown after the pandemic, because many customers prefer to wait until the last minute to make their reservations, due to fear of cancellations.
