The Algarrobico case has dragged on since work on the building stopped in 2005 as it became clear that the land was protected.

But a definitive ruling on its legality is expected when courts re-open in September.

Greenpeace – among other groups – have regularly protested at the 400-room hotel, built a few hundred metres from a virgin beach.

In July, green group Ecologistas en Accion awarded the beach in front of the hotel one of their notorious black flags.
