Three Playa Blanca Hotels Denied Paperwork

Three hotel complexes have had their requests for inspection books and reclamation forms rejected by the Governing Council of the Cabildo of Lanzarote. This follows the annulment of their building licenses, which were granted by the Mayor of Yaiza, Jose Francisco Reyes, who is now in prison.

The three establishments include the Dream Hotel Gran Castillo, which has 462 beds and is located close to the beaches at Papagayo, in the Las Coloradas area of the resort. The Club Playa Blanca and Rio Playa Blanca complexes have also been denied this paperwork. These two latter hotels have 492 and 482 bedrooms respectively and both are situated in the Montaña Roja zone of the southern resort.

Without these documents, each complex may be fined by the Tourist Council for the Canarian Government, as this paperwork is considered vital to the inspection process. The Lanzarote Government has also denied this documentation to several apartments in Las Breñas and various villas.

The building licenses for the hotel complexes were all suspended in 2007 by the Superior Tribunal of the Canarian Justice system, some time after construction had finished on these tourist accommodations.
