"svn blame" reveals that I added it last January, in r1458, in an 
attempt to cover more of the built-in Garmin types:

Enable some POIs in the default style: amenity=car_club, natural=stream, 
shop=boat, shop=car_wrecker, sport=airport, tourism=resort.

What would you suggest then? Translate tourism=holiday_resort to this 
type as well? Not being a native speaker or a fan of hot weather, I 
would guess that "resort" means a "tourist trap" in a warm area next to 
a sandy beach. What is used for the tourist locations along the 
Mediterranean sea or the Caribbean and Pacific oceans?
