The aforementioned tourist turnover was realized with a total capacity of 37,380 beds, without the capacity of the former Hotel Park, where the construction of the new luxurious Grand Park Hotel is being completed and the ACI Marina, which is also being reconstructed. These two major investments, of which the construction of the Grand Park Hotel has been declared ‘strategic’ at the national level, will be completed by the end of March 2019.
