The Sol Pelícanos-Ocas hotel in Benidorm (Alicante, Spain) has been awarded ISO 14001 Environmental Management Certification for its conservation and defence of the natural environment. The hotel is the first in Benidorm to achieve the award.
The quality of hotel services, the enthusiastic involvement of its personnel and the co-operation of guests and suppliers have all contributed to the Sol Pelícanos-Ocass achievement in successfully applying an ambitious environmental management policy in a resort such as Benidorm, widely-known for its focus on mass tourism.
In 1995 Sol Meliá created its own Corporate Environmental Protection Manual and has been gradually implementing its guidelines in hotels ever since. The introduction of environmentally-friendly policies has won company hotels a number of awards, including the concession of the ISO 14001 Environmental Management Certification to other hotels such as the Meliá Confort Montevideo (Uruguay), the Sol Élite Falcó and Sol Élite Milanos-Pingüínos (Menorca, Spain)and the Sol Magalluf Park (Majorca, Spain).
With a great location on Levante Beach, the Sol Pelícanos-Ocas provides 794 rooms and was recently renovated to improve product quality standards and guest satisfaction levels. The hotel has also recently inaugurated a new giant lake-style swimming pool.
An ample choice of food and beverage options as well as an extensive entertainment programme with a wide range of sports activities and facilities make the Sol Pelícanos-Ocas an ideal holiday destination.
With more than 330 hotels in 30 countries, Sol Meliá is the leading hotel company in both the city and resort hotel markets in Spain, Latin America and the Caribbean, number two in Europe and tenth in the world ranking of hotel chains.
