Algarve December bookings

Algarve hotels and tourist establishments registered their third best December since booking records are kept, with 34.8% of available rooms booked.

The only years with busier Decembers since 1996 were 2019 (36.8%) and 2016 (35.5%), according to the Algarve’s hotelier association AHETA.

There was also a 1.3 percentage point increase compared to 2022 (33.5%), thanks in part to increases in the number of Dutch (+0.6pp) and German and Irish (+0.2pp) holidaymakers.
