Hotels in the Dominican Republic are expected to fill completely just by next week, according to Arturo Villanueva, executive vice-president of National Hotels and Tourism Association (ASONAHORES). Villanueva affirms that 2011 has resulted in a very popular year for winter holidays in the Dominican Republic.

Most of the foreign travellers staying in Dominican Republic hotels these days come mainly from the United States and Canada, followed by Latin American and European holidaymakers. Only 5 per cent of hotel guests in the Dominican Republic are locals. The National Hotels and Tourism Association believe that cheap deals on Dominican Republic holidays are very appealing to worldwide holidaymakers, especially foreigners, who wish to spend a winter away from snow and chilly temperatures.

Arturo Villanueva, cited by the newspaper Hoy, said that hotels from Dominican Republic’s East region lead in occupancy levels with around 90 per cent occupancy, while the other resort zones range between 70 and 75 per cent.
