Tourism is the most important industry in the Balearic Islands. This article develops a method to set mathematical models that relate water consumption with occupation. The method is tested in a set of hotels from Majorca, although it is perfectly applicable anywhere in the world. Every model is validated by the square of the Pearson correlation coefficient. The methodology displayed is acceptable in the examples analyzed, as Pearson coefficient values obteined are above 0.69, opening a new field for further research. Finally, it is studied the effect of adding new hotels to the model of the group of hotels, obtained previously.
