Vandalised Los Álamos hotel to be auctioned

  • Local residents have been protesting for three years at the gradual deterioration of the building, which has been hit by the effects of squatters, graffiti, looting and even small fires

The vandalised shell of the old Hotel Los Álamos, on the main road into Torremolinos from Malaga, is to be put up for auction.

Local residents have been protesting for three years at the gradual deterioration of the building, which has been hit by the effects of squatters, graffiti, looting and even small fires.

The actual building is owned by the government's social security department and they have had possession of it since the last hotel operators went bankrupt in 2014.

The auction sale, at an unknown price, includes the adjacent land and will take place on 17 November.
