Taimar Hotel in Costa Calma

The Pájara City Council today congratulated the Hotel Taimar team for receiving the 2023 hotel CSR award

The Pájara City Council today congratulated the Hotel Taimar team for having received the 2023 hotel CSR award, delivered as part of the closing ceremony of the Congress of Spanish Hoteliers.

The hotel establishment, located in the municipality of Pájara, was the only one from the Canary Islands present at this ceremony, in which corporate social responsibility was recognized, through an initiative of the InterMundial Foundation and Tourism & Law, which has the support and collaboration of the hotel employers' association Cehat.

The Councilor for Tourism, Tina da Silva, congratulated the work done by the establishment's team in terms of accessibility and inclusivity, from the beginning to the end of the project, which has led them to be recognized nationally. "The City Council's commitment to tourism for all is in the same line and that is why we are very satisfied that it is reflected in such important awards," said the councilor.

For her part, the Councilor for Accessibility, Eva Sánchez, stressed that, thanks to the effort of the professionals of the Taimar Hotel, people from all walks of life can enjoy Pájara and choose our municipality for a vacation where they will feel well received and where they will have the necessary facilities to have a good experience. "It is a hotel that eliminates barriers and that is why we thank and congratulate the work of the establishment," he concluded.

On behalf of Hotel Taimar, its co-owner Rubén Montesdeoca was in charge of collecting this prestigious recognition.

United Nations recognises Hotel Taimar as inclusive and barrier-free accommodation.

The Cabildo of Fuerteventura has received today Rubén Montesdeoca, co-owner of the Hotel Taimar, an establishment that has received recognition from the United Nations as an inclusive hotel without barriers. Montesdeoca was received by the president of the Cabildo, Lola García, the Minister of Tourism, Marlene Figueroa, and the Minister of Accessibility, Carmen Alonso.

Last February, Hotel Taimar was present at the United Nations Accessibility Conference, organized in Vienna (Austria) by the Essl Foundation and Zero Project. Rubén Montesdeoca stressed that "this is the most important conference in the world in terms of accessibility and Taimar has been the only hotel invited as a world benchmark for accessible and inclusive tourism".

Likewise, Montesdeoca highlights that "our model was even defined as a benchmark to export all over the world, which places Fuerteventura on the international scene in terms of inclusivity". On January 24th, within the framework of the International Tourism Fair (FITUR), Hotel Taimar signed the commitment to the global code of ethics of the World Tourism Organization, which also depends on the United Nations.

The president of the Cabildo, Lola García, congratulated the Hotel Taimar for a "well-deserved recognition of its commitment to accessibility and sustainability in a sector as important as tourism". For her part, the Minister of Tourism, Marlene Figueroa, joined this congratulations and stressed that "this recognition of the work of the Hotel Taimar is also a positioning of the tourist destination of Fuerteventura for this type of tourism that is so attractive for the island". Marlene Figueroa explained that "from the Cabildo we will continue working in this segment to coordinate concrete actions that promote it."

The Minister of Accessibility, Carmen Alonso, highlighted "the effort made by Hotel Taimar in the renovation of its facilities, which has allowed it to become an inclusive establishment with full accessibility. We know the work it takes and how important it is for Fuerteventura."

As reported by the Cabildo de Fuerteventura, Hotel Taimar has received these recognitions for turning its facilities into an inclusive complex equipped with the latest technological advances to offer the best service to people with some type of disability. With its renovation, the hotel has also reinforced its commitment to sustainable development, with highly energy-efficient equipment that will reduce its CO emissions2 in hundreds of tons per year.

Some of the awards that have recognized this work of Hotel Taimar are the Distinguished Tourism Awards granted by the Cabildo de Fuerteventura, the CaixaBank Award for Tourism Companies, the distinction as an International Symbol of Accessibility by the Government of the Canary Islands or the Corporate Social Responsibility award granted by the InterMundial Tourism & Law Foundation and the Spanish Confederation of Hotels and Tourist Accommodation (Cehat).

We have stayed here a couple of times in the last six months. Whilst accessibility is good, with ramps around the lower level and into the pool, there are a lot of steps around the place also. There is a lift form the ground floor, where the restaurant and bar is, to the upper level, where the pool and pool bar is.
We stayed in one of the 'disabled' rooms on out second visit, the major differences being the entrance door and the bathroom. Strangely the wardrobe has a device to enable a wheelchair to access the rail but to me there was not enough room to be able to access the wardrobe anyway as it was in front of the bed.
