Revealed: Plans for new €16million beachside hotel on Spain’s Costa Blanca that will count 200 rooms

PLANS for a €16 million beach-front hotel for Arenales del Sol have been submitted to Elche City Council.

It will be built on Calle Albacete facing Carabassi beach on land that was originally going to be a 278 space car park and then an overnight base for caravans and motorhomes.

Miraclot’s proposal is for a 200-bedroom hotel with six swimming pools, green areas, restaurants, an underground car park and a spa.

The complex will consist of six three-storey high blocks with the area covering nearly 16,000 m2.

There will be two types of one or two bedroom apartments in the new facility.

The smaller ones will be a suite-type room with a large bedroom with a bed, sofa, a small kitchen, a bathroom and a terrace.

The double apartments feature a living room, dining room, kitchen, two bathrooms and a terrace.

Elche council’s governing board has approved that the hotel be included in its urban development plan, but matters are still at a preliminary phase.

The project will be subjected to an extensive study before it is cleared and the plans will be publicly displayed to get feedback from residents.

Previous projections for the land only allowed for construction to happen on up to 60% of the plot.

It’s the second attempt to bring back a hotel to Arenales del Sol after a dramatic failure in 2017.

The Hotel de Arenales del Sol was in business between 1963 and 1979, and it was eventually demolished in 2021.


The structure had become a target for squatters, drug addicts and rats, as well as a major eyesore.

All a far cry from when it became Arenales’ very first building over 60 years ago in an area that now has around 1,700 residents.

In 2017, the developer Princesol started work on the empty hotel with an investment of €10 million which would have seen a total revamp with 101 bedrooms.

A complaint that the company started knocking down parts of the hotel without permission led work being suspended after a few weeks.

Legal rulings all went against Princesol, who abandoned their plans, with the bulldozers moving in four years ago.
