FMHOY - Fuerteventura
The deputy president and Tourism Councillor of Fuerteventura's Cabildo, Blas Acosta, discovered last month the renovation work that is underway in various hotels in Morro Jable during his visit in the municipality of Pájara. Blas Acosta pointed out the renovation work that is being undertaken by hotels in Morro Jable, in particular, in “five hotels where the quality provided to clients will be increased, which means that Pájara will keep on being the municipality with the longest average tourism stays”.
The Tourism councillor paid a visit to various complexes that have just completed the renovations or that are still undergoing renovations such as the Apartments Casa Alberto that are in the process of renovations that should be completed in July. The director of Casa Alberto, Natalia Paninka, explained to Blas Acosta what the renovations of the interior of the 12-apartment complex, that was inaugurated in 2001, consist of. Furthermore, he discovered with the director of Hotel Buganvilla, Antonio Navarro, the renovation carried out in the restaurant and the solarium in order to increase the level of clients that come almost exclusively from Thomas Cook.
Blas Acosta also wanted to thank the financial efforts made by businesses in the south of the island and said to be willing to help small and medium-sized businesses so that “tourism can also benefit them and for their businesses to be profitable”. Blas Acosta also discovered the situation of various businesses of Morro Jable and their main demands. During his visit, he met with Dolores Pérez, owner of the jewellery Jandía, also with Davinia Ortega from Modas Jandía and Sili Umpiérrez from Modas C. y S. as well as the sports' equipment shop Marina Sport. Their clients come mainly from the tourists who visit the main area of Morro Jable. M. Acosta, together with the director of the Tourism Board, Moisés Jorge, had the opportunity to visit the establishment called Flor Decoración Ana Albán, a florist that stands out for its creativity and tends to supply flowers to the hotels in Morro Jable.
In El Cardón they visited the laundry Lavandería El Cardón, where they discovered how this business works with around 320 employees and whose main business comes from the tourism trade. At present, the laundry has clients in Gran Canaria, Lanzarote, Fuerteventura and Tenerife. The councillor announced to the associate director of the laundry, Haridian Medina, that Lavandería El Cardón would be the chosen business for Fuerteventura for the Tourism awards granted by the Canarian Government. M. Acosta also visited the Watersport Fuerteventura Centre located in Matas Blancas since December 2016. He met with the director, Víctor Sosa, who introduced him to the kitesurf and windsurf courses they offer.
