Costa del Sol cuts

ALMOST one-fifth of jobs in Costa del Sol hotels have been cut in the past year.

Hotel workers have demonstrated against the job losses and unions are claiming the cuts, 16 per cent of 2,205 jobs, are unnecessary.

The cuts follow closures in Los Monteros and Las Dunas and the bankruptcy of Marbella’s Guadalpin Hotels, the Byblos, Incosol and Torrequebrada.

The Junta’s tourism councillor, Luciano Alonso, has called on ‘speculators’ to leave.

Meanwhile, hotels are expected to be 70 per cent full over Easter after the Junta announced that beaches were ready despite fears of a washout.

Malaga has seen 45,000 cubic metres of debris cleared from 75km of coastline and 51 beaches in recent weeks.
