Derelict Hotel Rocamar

According to the local newspaper, works to demolish the eyesore that is the old Hotel Rocamar are due to begin next week. Hopefully, it won't create too much dirt on the road to the beach, but it will be much better for the area once it is gone.

Thanks. Sounds like hard work! Almond trees would be a good idea too! There's going to be a world shortage soon.

That sounds good...... Honey bees!

Incredible though, because if that was in the UK, There would definitely be a new hotel complex built there as it's a great location and that parcel of land is probably extremely valuable.

Good idea! The bees would pollinate my almond blossom!!

They can have the swarm that's just moved into one of my hollow trees :-)

They'll have to re-write the instructions for lots of walks in dozens of walking guidebooks as many of them start out from, or end at, that landmark!!

I've read it is to be a tree lined terraced area, and Simon, yes, it is that building

I was considering a villa near the Finca Can. Ai.

Does this mean the peace around there will be shattered by the demolition works, or will I be far enough away not to be disturbed? Not going til Sept, so hopefully would be flattened by then . It's an absolute blight on the landscape and glad to hear it's going!

Also, just wondered if that area gets the sun all day or if it disappears behind a hill early on.
