Record-Breaking Overnight Stays in Marbella’s Tourist Apartments in May

The Broad Street of Marbella, in the Old Town, witnessed a record-breaking number of overnight stays in tourist apartments in May, surpassing 100,000. More than 16,500 tourists chose this type of accommodation, which reached an occupancy rate of 71% during this period. These figures are lower than those in April and also lower than the same period last year. The average stay is six days.

New Record in Tourist Apartment Accommodations in Marbella

Following the record set in April, May has once again set a new record for the highest number of overnight stays in the historical series. According to data provided on Monday by the National Institute of Statistics (INE), 100,724 overnight stays were recorded in tourist apartments during May in the municipality. This is a record in the historical series (since 2005) for this month, surpassing 100,000 for the first time after the 99,858 recorded in 2019, before the pandemic.

Most Overnight Stays by Foreign Tourists

The majority of the overnight stays were by foreign tourists (90,737), while Spanish tourists accounted for 9,987, a significant decrease compared to the previous year. Regarding the tourists who chose these non-hotel accommodations, there were 16,553, fewer than in the same month of 2022 and fewer than this past April. Therefore, there are fewer visitors, but they stay longer. The average stay is 6.08 days. The occupancy rate was 71%. According to the INE, it is estimated that the staff employed was 571 people.

Hotels and Apartments in Marbella

If we add those who stayed in hotels (73,479) and those who opted for tourist apartments (16,553), Marbella welcomed 90,032 tourists in May. In both cases, a decrease in domestic visitors is observed, which is offset by the increase in foreign visitors.
