Resort Tourism

"A resort is a place used for relaxation or recreation, attracting visitors for holidays or vacations. Resorts are places, towns or sometimes commercial establishment operated by a single company. Such a self-contained resort attempts to provide for most of a vacationer's wants while remaining on the premises, such as food, drink, lodging, sports, entertainment, and shopping. The term "resort" sometimes is misused to identify a hotel that does not provide the other amenities required of a full resort. However, a hotel is frequently a central feature of a resort, such as the Grand Hotel at Mackinac Island, Michigan. A resort is not merely a commercial establishment operated by a single company, although in the late twentieth century this sort of facility became more common".
Do you like this kind of tourism? or Have you been a very special resort? Tell us about it.

  1. Oh! Yes, I like it. In fact I have been sometimes in "Hotel Guadalpin Byblos" in Mijas (Málaga). Despite calling "Hotel" I think it is more than that, because it has thalassotherapy, with 3 indoor seawater pools, sauna, hamman, massages, etc..., beauty centre, fitness centre, outdoor pools too. You can play tennis, golf, ride on bikemountains, etc... Also you can eat in one of its 3 restaurants or have a drink in one of its bars.
    Of course, you can relax taking sunbaths by the swimmingpool.
