Playa Grande



Hotel development



Is to increasing financial performance by  merging four property in a single entity , increasing the number of rooms to rent for saving on expenses derived from fixed costs as well as broadening the range of options to may offer for  guests;
Reach a critical mass of guests will offer opportunity to empower the sale, run profitable restaurant business and manage a surf school and recreational/tour activity.


There are two adjacent properties already running two profitable hotel business, and two backyard lots, both on process for permit to build.
Link the four properties and build 16 new rooms will increase ROI as well as offering to the Surfer community a better service.

In 2015 I bought a 20 year established hotel business.  After 3 seasons my statistics evidenced how the fixed costs impact on the ROI, so I decided to transform some of the spaces of my property creating new rooms in order to broaden room typology.
The results of the extension that added 5 new rooms was increment of the occupancy room rate of 12% based on the median occupancy rate of last 3 high seasons

Since Playa Grande is a surf district with numerous growing possibilities and our statistics indicate that our business would increase revenue by adding rooms we decided to examine the possibilities of further expansion. 

The owner of the adjacent hotel, La Marjada, is selling his property after more than 10 years of successful busyness. Furthermore, there are two empty lots north of my property, which is less than 150 meters from the area’s main surf spot.

I have 15 years experience in real estate in Italy as a general contractor so I am still selling my properties in Italy in order to reach the necessary liquidity to build my dream;

I know how much I love this business but finding the right partner to invest together would make things a lot easier.


My long term project consist in merging the four adjacent properties to build a profitable surf resort, although in the short term, it may be broken down into distinct steps in relation to the available liquidity (either by un-investing in Italy or by finding business parters).
