The figures have just been announced by the Las Palmas Tourism Business Federation (FEHT) VP, Tom Smulders.
Smulders noted that this year would probably not be quite as lucrative as the winter season of 2014-15, despite demand far exceeding supply for both hotel rooms and apartments/bungalow accommodation, due to an earlier Easter.
He also stated that the main reason for the high occupancy levels, which have seen the islands break occupancy records every year since 2011, was external influences such as the ongoing instability in Tunisia and Egypt.
With the island pretty much fully booked, we can understand why the government is looking at ways of increasing the number of resort properties available for tourist use.
As for Gran Canaria fans, the high occupancy levels mean that last-minute bargains are likely to be scarce. Demand is so high that our sofas are already booked up for the winter.
