Iberostar will be closed the entire month of October 2013. They report the reason is to do some remodel, but I think it is due to low volume. October 2012 they only 30% filled up.
Actually October is the slowest tourist month here so I would make sense to close then for refirb. It is one of the most popular resorts in the area and I would doubt it is anyting more than this.
Don’t know, but it is intersting to note last year during October Iberostar was only 30% filled, while RIU was 70% filled, and Lifestyle was 60% filled.
I think customers are watching out for the pricing they are being charged.
Price makes a difference as well! The Riu’s have been an sale cheap!
