Whilst not originally operating under the name of Med Playa, the company began to construct several hotels in Benidorm in 1967 and 1968. Since then the group has expanded its operations opening other hotels in Spain's main tourist resorts: Torremolinos and Benalmadena on the Costa del Sol; Benidorm on the Costa Blanca; Salou on the Costa Daurada; Calella on the Maresme coast; and Tossa and Platja d'Aro (Playa de Aro) on the Costa Brava.
The company's management team is highly experienced in the running of hotel businesses. However, the activity of Med Playa goes beyond this to include a wide range of businesses related to the hotel industry.
Apart from the hotels owned and managed by Med Playa, the group also owns warehouses and other premises used by General Compras Hoteleras S.L., the chain's purchasing division, and our laundry company (www.bugaderiadaurada.com). General Compras Hoteleras S.L. was founded in 1996 and has warehouses in Benidorm and Vila-seca. Its objective is to coordinate efficiently the supply of the hotels, centrally controlling and supervising the cost and quality of the products which are bought.

THE ADVANTAGES OF MED PLAYA MANAGEMENT FOR INDEPENDENT HOTELS:
1st Med Playa has a well organised and centralised structure for the management of hotels. The key departments of Accounting and Finances, Human Resources, Information Technology, and Sales and Marketing are very well staffed.
2nd Additionally we have our own purchasing division, which makes it possible to take advantage of economies of scale and facilitates negotiations with suppliers.
3rd In addition, we have two of our own laundrettes that rent out hotel linen.
4th We are shareholders and participate in the management of a catering company serving the hotel industry, which supplies our hotels with pre-prepared dishes. This service has a complementary role providing a back-up reserve for the kitchens of our hotels.
5th Commercially the fact that we are partners of TUI Travel Ltd. in a hotel industry joint venture means that we have close contact and an excellent cooperative relationship with Europe's leading tour operator.
6th In 2008 we introduced new SAP hotel management software. The introduction of this software greatly strengthens the administrative processes of our hotels and enables the connectivity of all the on-line sales agents through our own website.
OUR PHILOSOPHY AND POLICIES
Med Playa is a hotel chain that specialises in coastal holidays. We began at the same time as the first tourists started coming to Spain. Since then we have specialised in giving great holidays to visitors to our country. We know that they are the details that make all the difference and we pay great attention to getting these right. A friendly service, good food, comfortable rooms and a pleasant atmosphere are for us the key to great holidays. Our objective as a company is to provide quality holidays at competitive prices.
Quality for us means providing comfortable, modern, well-equipped rooms with all the necessary supporting services; these services include laying on varied, nutritious food adapted to the tastes of our guests, never forgetting that many of our hotels are family orientated; quality for Med Playa also means making our guests feel welcome with a genuinely friendly service: not one of forced, theatrical friendliness but rather a service displaying the warmth of our staff, who truly enjoy serving our guests; it also means putting on quality entertainment, both with regard to games and sports activities and the evening entertainments, with shows given by professionals, the guests themselves, and members of our own staff.
Competitive pricing means offering prices that are concordant with the quality and service that we provide. Try and imagine planning a holiday for the whole of your family taking as a reference the prices we offer on our website. We are sure that you will be pleasantly surprised at how reasonable the cost is. We are able to offer these competitive prices thanks to the depth of our experience in the hotel business. Many years of work have taught us how to adjust our costs without harming the quality of our service, so that our guests get the very best value for money.
Our mission is reflected in the values that characterise the philosophy of Med Playa Management SL and its performance as a responsible company: the emphasis is on people, good business sense, environmental responsibility and innovation.
Med Playa is committed to the environment and conducts all of its business activities in line with the principles of sustainable development, progressively introducing policies to ensure good environmental practices in all of the chain's hotels.
The chain has introduced policies ranging from resource rationalisation (energy, water, etc.), the reduction in residue production and selective waste collection to guidelines ensuring respect for local flora and fauna as well as the cultural heritage of the places where Med Playa does business.
Innovation forms part of the culture of Med Playa. Since 2007 we have held an internal competition that awards the ingenuity of our workers. These prizes have the dual aim of throwing up imaginative new ideas for improvements in our work and of making sure that the voice of our staff is heard. Med Playa also has an innovation team to evaluate and develop new projects and ideas.
