More hotels in Fuerteventura request the SICTED quality label
The Quality Meeting from the Integral Tourism Quality in Destination System (Sistema Integral de Calidad Turística en Destinos - SICTED) took place, in November, to announce which companies and services comply with the requirements, and have passed successfully the evaluation process according to the SICTED methodology. Therefore, a total of 63 establishments and 6000 new hotel spaces will be put forward by Fuerteventura's Tourism Board to be awarded the certificate during the next meeting that will take place on December 15th. Last year, 49 establishments were put forward and, this year, 5 of those hotels from the SBH chain are being named again, as well as Igramar Morro Jable, Hotel Iberostar Playa Gaviotas and, for the first time, the holiday accommodation of Sol Holidays Villas Canarias. The selection methodology of SICTED differentiates 36 different types of establishments and services (from hotels or apartment complexes to taxis, as well as museums, leisure centres, shops, tourism offices, safety services, beaches, restaurants, travel agents, and many more), and they are all offered a Good Practices' Manual, which is specific for each category, atraining plan, technical assistance visits from homologated advisors, collective workshops, work groups that develop proposals to improve the destination, and regular evaluations to certify that the establishments or services comply with the SICTED quality standards, that ensure a positive distinction compared to competitors.
