After being closed for more than a year, Hotel Los Monteros has reopened for business under new management in Marbella on the Costa del Sol in Spain. Along with the hotel the exclusive La Cabane beach club which boasts a pool, solarium, bar and excellent restaurant is also ready to receive new guests. The manager of the five star hotel, Salvador Rios, confirmed that the hotel will have all its services “working 100 percent so that our guests will receive our full attention and a service to cater to their every need”.

The sale of the hotel to the new owners – New Monteros S.L. and Monterotel S.L. – was finalised on 01 July in Mercantile Court No2 in Malaga. The financial administrator, Judah Azuelos, allowed the sale of the hotel for the sum of 25 million euro without debt.
