Almuñécar’s Convergencia Andaluza (Benavides) fired off a broadside against the Mayor over the failed Hotel Bahía Fenicia project.
The CA accuses the governing coalition (PP/Más Almuñécar/IU Podemos) of having cost the municipal coffers over half a million euros concerning the loss of what was to have been the Costa Tropical’s first 7-Star hotel.
The CA claims that investors pulled out because of the obstacles placed in the way of building the hotel by the ruling coalition. The hotel was to be built behind The Rock of the Wolf (above Dead Man’s Beach in Cotobro).
“Almuñécar and La Herradura lost a golden opportunity to stand out amongst tourist destinations, by backing quality and defeating the seasonal limitations that we suffer,” reads the communiqué.
The press release closed with pointing out that a recent court decision had sentenced the Mayor to reimburse 415.156 euros (the tax levied on the building project) plus 127.539 euros in interest.
