RULING on the El Algarrobico hotel should arrive soon from the Supreme Court.
The tribunal will rule whether the land where the hotel was constructed on the El Algarrobico beach near Carboneras was classified for development or if the building is situated too near the shoreline. It must also decide whether the land now belongs to the regional government.
In a rare interview Jose Rodriguez Losada, director general of the Algarrobico’s owners Azata del Sol, said the company was prepared to relocate the hotel “brick by brick” to prevent demolition and provide employment.
Losada also suggested using the unoccupied building as an environmental centre, a hotel school or for activities linked to the sea.
