Thirteen floors of new 30-floor Calpe hotel may be illegal

13 floors of new 30-floor hotel may be illegal
ABOVE THE REST: The Suitopia - Sol y Mar Suites Hotel

A REPORT has revealed that up to 13 of the 30 floors in Calpe’s new Suitopia – Sol y Mar Suites Hotel may be illegal.

The study, commissioned by the opposing Compromis party, blames the consistory – who granted the license – for “a serious urban infraction and a fraud of law” that “disregards the coastline and the environment of the Penyal d’Ifac.”

The councillors of the opposition said that “with Compromis at the head of the consistory, this would not have happened.”

The height of the new hotel – located on a plot of about 9,200 square metres – exceeds neighbouring buildings by over 100 metres.

The report estimates that the build-ability of the new hotel should have been around 22,537 square metres-ceiling but the building’s actual capacity amounts to 34.605 square metres-ceiling.

The study denounces the consistory on four counts and states “we are dealing with a license granted by the consistory that goes against the urban legal system – this has resulted in a building that is perceived as having an unregulated volume.”
