In 1967 the seeds of MedPlaya were planted with the first hotels of this new group opening in Benidorm. 50 years later, MedPlaya continue to have a strong presence in Benidorm plus the other popular Costa destinations of Mainland Spain.
To kick off the 50 year celebrations, the biannual Managers Meeting was held in the MedPlaya Hotel Flamingo Oasis in Benidorm the first week of March. As well as celebrating “50 years of fun in the sun” , it was an opportunity for the MedPlaya Management team to meet up and discuss plans for the year ahead.
In 50 years MedPlaya has looked after thousands of guests in the fifteen hotels located in Mainland Spain, (plus the Hotel Bella Vista in Bulgaria) and the 50th anniversary allows MedPlaya an opportunity to thank our guests for choosing a MedPlaya Hotel to enjoy their holidays.
There are various events planned for the year including a photo competition, special Summer Parties, a Staff Recognition award and lots of special touches to make sure all our guests enjoy our 50th year.
During the event in Benidorm, the Mayor of Benidorm Toni Pérez and the President of the Hoteliers Assocation of Benidorm (HOSBEC) Sr Antonio Mayor, accompanied by the Secretary of HOSBEC, Nuria Montes, attended a special cocktail on the SkyLine terrace of the Hotel Flamingo Oasis, and the Mayor thanked MedPlaya for their contribution to tourism in Benidorm.
The 2 day meeting was finished with a delicious team lunch held in the hotel.
During the lunch Sr Manolo Lopez, Manager of the Hotel Santa Monica was recognised for 25 years in the company and Sr Miguel Bordera, General Manager of the MedPlaya Riviera –Sensimar was recognised for all his years with the company as he prepares for his retirement in May of this year-.
The event was a successful start to the 50th year celebrations and ideas were shared amongst the team to ensure we share our success with our guests and our staff.
