Renovation of the tower of the Robinson Club Jandía Playa

The representative of Robinson España, Monti Galmés, admitted during a recent speech, that this project represents a ''large effort and is something that is necessary''. Furthermore, he justified the demolition of the tower with the intention of building this ''new and modern tower, with novelties that are expected in tourism and is also what clients expect when they come to visit this lovely island of Fuerteventura''. The Robinson Club Jandía Playa with 140 rooms and 10 floors was built at the end of the '60's. Last month, it reopened its doors as a balcony on the Atlantic Ocean converted into a four-star establishment. The renovation of the tower shows the commitment to the quality and service of the Robinson chain for the next 100 years. This tower has already received the Platinum Certificate for Durability in Buildings (only four hotels in the world have received this environmental award). The building work started in December 2017 and a month later the old tower of the club was brought down. This hotel, one of the first ones to be built when tourism started in Fuerteventura, welcomed famous clients such as the German Chancellor Willy Brand for Christmas 1972. The TUI Group has 380 of its own hotels of which 94 are in Spain and 36 in the Canaries. Fuerteventura is one of its most ''treasured and cherished'' destinations in Spain, explained the president of TUI, Friedrich Joussen, and the director Robinson, Bernd Mäser, who have worked in Fuerteventura since 1971.
