In May 2014, tourism accommodation establishments recorded 4.4 million overnight stays, corresponding to an increase of 12.3% , below the one recorded in April (+25.4%) which had the influence of the Easter calendar effect. Overnight stays from residents increased by 16.1% (+36.9% in April), while the growth from non residents ascended to 11.1% (+21.3% in April).
Revenue grew in percentage more than the number of overnight stays (+18.9% in total revenue and +19.7% in revenue from accommodation). These increases stood slightly below the ones of the previous month (+20.2% and +20.4%, respectively).
These results are partly linked to several factors namely international events and also to promotions and specific campaigns with impact on tourist demand from residents and non residents.
