Portugal seems just the place to get away from all the financial gloom for thousands of Christmas holiday makers.  Bookings in Portugal for Christmas and New Year’s hotel rooms are strong, according to news reports in the Portugal News. The Tivoli Group, one of the country’s largest hotel chains, indicated that holiday bookings have been solid and they expect a good end of the year.
“At this time there are less reservations than in 2007, but we believe that people are waiting until the ‘last minute’ to book,” said a Tivoli spokesman, and rooms at Tivoli’s Madeira unit are completely sold out, and at the Tivoli Ecoresort (Praia do Forte, Brazil) “Almost everything is sold out”. As far as Christmas banquets are concerned, “Sales are a little slower than in 2007, but last week we received many enquiries, so once again we think that some clients are waiting until the ‘last minute’ to reserve
In addition the Tivoli Group report, a spokesperson for one of the Algarve’s most prestigious resorts, the Sheraton Pine Cliffs, told The Portugal News their unit sales were “looking pretty good” for both Christmas and the New Year, in terms of both events and room occupancy. Over the New Year Sheraton Pine Cliffs expects to have an occupancy rate in the region of over 80 per cent, which does not vary dramatically from previous years.
