Hotel MedanoAfter months of talks between central government, the Tenerife Cabildo and Granadilla council, the plans of the Department of Coasts to demolish the Hotel Medano have been ditched. Politicians and local people are breathing a sigh of relief.

The hotel building, a popular landmark in the town, will be left standing. However there are plans to demolish the sun deck which was added long after the hotel was built. It stands on stilts and extends into the sea.
