Re: Properties under threat in the National Park

Is the "two months" deadline for 3 properties, mentioned in the article, from now or from 2038? Anyone know? If the latter is the case, that would cause a lot of disturbance to Winter species that use the S'Albufera. Dave The three month deadline for the initial demolition of three properties is fr...

Re: Tourist Licence,renting properties

The irony of the situation is in Cala en Porter, there are far more beds in apartments, than there are in hotels! The reason I can’t get a licence at the moment, is because I am on a complex, that has a global licence, from the days when all the apartments were owned by the commercial Company, but ...

Re: Tourist Licence,renting properties

In times like this the govt will inevitably fund measures that enhance the visitor experience and will prioritise enticing hotel guests to the island rather than give consideration to villa owners for the simple reason that occupied hotels provide more jobs than a rented villa or apartment.

Royal Son Bou Hotel to close on Sept 8th

The Hotel will close early for the season on September 8th having struggled to achieve a profitable occupancy and the recent setback of a staff member testing positive for Covid-19. Never been there, but If an establishment like this in a resort like Son Bou can't make it work I suspect this is just...
