  • The Gran Hotel Miramar in Malaga is leading the charge and has said that it will open its doors again on 1 June

Tourism has started to wake up at varied points along the Costa del Sol. In Malaga, El Gran Hotel Miramar, luxury flagship in the city, has said that it will open its doors again on 1 June. The property, part of the Santos chain, will open with limited capacity and with all the required health and safety restrictions in place.

Managers at the hotel have said that by opening early in Phase Two they hope to help restart the local economy.

The Fuerte Hoteles group has also announced that it is preparing to reopen again. The first to open its doors will be the emblematic Fuerte Marbella on 3 July as well as Fuerte Conil-Resort and Fuerte Grazalema, in Cadiz, and Fuerte El Rompido, in Huelva.

Managers of the group said they had decided to open, "after the positive progress that the easing of lockdown appears to be having and the approaching new normal".

Marbella's iconic Puente Romano hotel also informed that it will be opening again on 2 July. Along with other hotels, bosses again stressed the extra precautions they are taking.

"We've developed and adapted our operations as needed, and implemented full health and safety training so that all hygiene measures are in accordance with the World Health Organization guidelines."
