Supreme Court gives final judgment that Hotel Médano must be demolished

Costas has been seeking the demolition of the hotel Médano since 2005, and now a Supreme Court judgment clears the way for the entire building to be knocked down. Back in 2010, there was talk that only the terraces might have to be demolished, or that the building might have a public social role, but now the Supreme Court has ruled that the building is illegal because the hotel’s concession to occupy public land is defunct, and the original project approved by Costas was altered without permission, being built one storey too high and with illegal terraces that jut into the sea like the prow of a ship.

Unlike so many journalists writing about the resorts, Pamela has not only actually been to Tenerife, she lived on the island for 16 years, for the majority of that time in a rural valley immersed in the local culture in a way that few outsiders have been privileged to do and gaining a wealth of knowledge about the island, its people, their customs, fiestas and celebrations that she is now able to share via this site. Fluent in Spanish, she also translated and reported for the various English-language newspapers.
