Positive outlook for hotels


Share post:

ALTHOUGH GENERALLY OPTIMISTIC about the current winter season, some hoteliers are concerned about occupancies past March and April this year.
Some hoteliers attending this week’s Caribbean Hotel Tourism Association’s (CHTA) Caribbean Travel Marketplace at the Montego Bay Convention Centre, Jamaica, said while they were relatively pleased with business meetings which were held with leading tour operators, they were looking forward to last-minute bookings to take them past the end of the official season on April 15.
Accra Beach Resort general manager Jon Martineau disclosed, “What we are hearing from tour operators and travel agents is that 2014 is looking positive. Compared to last year, bookings are ahead at this stage for the first three months. Looking positive therefore does not speak for the entire year.”
Martineau said while he was satisfied with the number of meetings he and his management team held with tour operators at this regional event, beyond January, February and March, there was not much business on the charts.
