New hotel project for Riviera Maya to start this year

Playa del Carmen, Q.R. – A Spanish hotel chain has announced its intentions to move forward with the construction of another hotel in the region of Rivera Maya.

Hoteles Playa will begin construction of its new Playa Senator this year. According to spokesperson Jose Maria Rossell Recasens, land for the project was purchased more than 12 years ago, however, unforeseen circumstances caused the company to delay building until now.

“For 12 years we have two very important reserves of land in the Riviera Maya in Mexico, and finally this year, we hope to start the first resort with a thousand rooms,” he explained.

Rossell Recasens says the new hotel will consist of approximately 1,000 rooms in a project of multiple complexes. The new construction project will go head-to-head with other large chains in the area such as Barceló, Iberostar and Bahía Príncipe, among others.

According to their Environmental Impact Statement (MIA) presented in 2006, the project includes 1,134 rooms arranged in 63 modules distributed in nine groups with seven buildings each. The total investment was said to be $88 million dollars.
