According to the Association of Tour Operators of the Russian Federation, Russians have sold out almost all seats in all-inclusive hotels by the end of the season. This data was confirmed by ANEX Tour, "Russian Express", "Intourist", ALEAN, PEGAS Touristik and Coral Travel. The latest vacancies can be found in the hotels "Atelika Sokol", "Prometheus" and Bridge Resort.
According to Sergey Romashkin, general manager of tour operator "Dolphin" the situation is not critical because unlike other Kuban resorts hotels "all inclusive" are not in great demand in Sochi.
Sochi has formed an urban environment that offers a lot of entertainment. Tourists want to walk around the city and visit cafes. When staying at an all-inclusive hotel, urban entertainment often takes a back seat, particularly going to a restaurant.
