Taimar Hotel in Costa Calma, Fuerteventura

The Taimar Hotel in Costa Calma has received the distinction of the International Symbol of Accessibility from the Government of the Canary Islands, becoming the first in Fuerteventura and one of the few in the world to have this recognition that rewards the absence of barriers, both physical and communication in public spaces. 

Among the necessary requirements for a hotel to have the International Symbol of Accessibility are adapted parking spaces, ramps at the entrances to the establishment, lifting mechanisms, a reception free of obstacles and correctly signposted, corridors with enough space to allow the wheelchair mobility, adapted rooms and bathrooms, and accessible restaurants and cafeterias with adapted furniture.

For his part, the co-owner of the Hotel Taimar, Rubén González, expressed his satisfaction in regards to this distinction that "has taken a year and a half of work" and for having achieved that the facilities have better accessibility than ever. González pointed out that it is very important for the island and for the municipality that the Taimar is one of the few hotels in the world that has this recognition, demonstrating the commitment to higher quality tourism and aimed at all categories of people.
