In a company release, Bruce Wardinski, chairman and CEO of Playa Hotels & Resorts, stated, “We are continuing to execute our strategy and are pleased to announce our progress thus far this quarter. We expected our absolute ADR to decline as the quarter progressed due to seasonal factors but exceeding 2019 ADR by over 30 per cent is well beyond our expectations.”
