Guests at Holiday Club Puerto Calma in Puerto Rico on the southern coast of Gran Canaria will notice a difference when they visit the resort this month.
A comprehensive refurbishment programme began in April and was completed four weeks ago. All 109 apartments have been re-designed and fitted out to the highest standards with fully-equipped kitchens, air-conditioning and an exterior “chill-out area”, with a special sundeck area by the pool.
The plan was for the project to be split into two phases but management opted to carry out the work all in one go so that members and their guests could enjoy the new-look resort as soon as possible, and the hard work has clearly paid off. And with another balmy Gran Canaria winter just months away, the refurbishment schedule was well timed.
Calvin Lucock, MD of Holiday Club Canarias said: “After listening to numerous requests from our members and doing an in-depth study of the resort, we immediately put together this ambitious plan. The results are incredible and even surpass our expectations.”
Following the acquisition of the Club Puerto Calma Group of Resorts just over a year ago, as well as signing a Joint Venture with the Lopesan Group for development of luxury villas in Meloneras, Gran Canaria recently, Holiday Club also announced the acquisition of the Hydros Spa & Wellness boutique hotel in Benalmadena on the Costa del Sol earlier this summer.
