The prices for seaside stays will remain in 2016 at this year’s level, even if some decreases or increases may be recorded, the National Association of Travel Agencies (ANAT) Chairman Aurelian Marin has told AGERPRES.

“2016 will come with at least 1,000 rooms in all-inclusive system, with better and more diversified services so that hoteliers may keep their customers. In fact, I expect to see in the coming years a boom of all-inclusive hotels in Romania. Tourists’ options are directed increasingly more to better hotels, they upgrade their preferences: those who went to two stars, will buy 3-star stays, for example,” said the ANAT chairman.

In 2015, there have been 20 hotels that offered all-inclusive services at the Romanian seaside.

As to this year’s number of tourists at the Romanian seaside, it has gone up. Whereas hoteliers say the number of tourists has been 20pct higher, travel agencies estimate a 5 to 6pct rise for Mamaia and the southern seaside saw a 10pct advance in tourist package sales from 2014. More…
