Ashotel and Adeje Ayuntamiento say that for the third year running the Atlantic Holiday Centre hotel in Callao Salvaje has donated a dozen week-long holidays to cancer sufferers in the municipality. All are under the care of the Spanish cancer association and Adeje Ayuntamiento’s socio-sanitary programme.
Adeje health councillor Amada Trujillo Bencomo said the council is delighted to be part of the initiative which has been hugely beneficial to those who have been given holidays, “people who are suffering not just from cancer, but from high levels of personal stress during the palliative process”. Councillor Bencomo underlined the importance of their being able to enjoy free-time in a qualitative way which can also help in their recovery.
Hotel director Charlotte Abildtrup expressed the hotel’s delight “to be able to help these people and their families, to offer them a chance to relax and take a break from the stress related to dealing with their cancer. We know that these people are fighters, that they have daily challenges to overcome, which is why, during these summer months, we will be delighted to welcome them here and hope they enjoy all the hotel has to offer”. Bencomo added, “Gestures such as these go to show that solidarity has no limits or frontiers”.
The Hotel Atlantic Holiday Centre offers guests large apartments, fresh water and salt water pools, a children’s zone, tennis courts, a park, leisure zone, a gymnasium and restaurants not to mention first class service and personal attention.
