Cabo de Gata Hotel will be demolished

Amazing, for once common sense has prevailed. The ‘majority’ of the hotel mentioned in the post below will be demolished, with work beginning almost immediately. The government claims that the land on which it is built “belongs to everyone”, whilst the Mayor of Carboneras, where it has been built, claims that lasting damage will be done to the area’s economic growth. Perhaps he is right, and I am sorry for that, but there are other ways to manage areas of outstanding natural beauty whilst still keeping the local economy alive and well.
