I’m very sorry, town hall, but sticking a pool on a roof is not my idea of adding attraction.

Of the all hotels chosen as an image to accompany a report about pools being built on hotel roofs, it had to be Bellevue. Strictly speaking, Bellevue isn’t a hotel, or should I say a series of hotels, but its classification apart, the last thing that one could imagine would be a pool on top of Minerva or whichever other block.

Why? Well, just bear in mind how old these buildings are. Fifty years old. Solid as a rock? One would hope so, but whack a pool full of water on the roof and you would have to wonder.

Alcudia town hall says that allowing these pools, if any actually appear, and I have my doubts, will add to the attraction of the destination.

I’m very sorry, town hall, but sticking a pool on a roof is not my idea of adding attraction. The general condition, look and ambience of the main tourist centre, which includes Bellevue and has been so badly neglected over the years, are what need attention.

This concept, or change of legislation, is yet just another example of the power, or hold, that the hoteliers have over our government. It's all obout profits for the hoteliers above everybody else, and why they even managed to get Armengol to allow tourists here from anywhere without tests, - until the foolishness, and the consequences of it demanded a reversal. The majority of these 50-60 year-old buildings should reallt be demolished and rebuilt with modern planning and materials, with car parks, and off-road coach access. This idea is just crazy.....

As ever, Andrew is spot on. Tonnes of water perched on the top of an ageing construction is no-one’s idea of fun.

Perhaps the council could focus on supporting eco or artisan business - like the brilliant micro brewery in Alcúdia ... due to leave the town?

Or perhaps share information about fiestas and events, in advance? That would be novel.

Better still make sure the bins are emptied on market days. And address some of those eye-saw buildings that have been bodged with concrete blocks ... even in old town.

Amazing job with the sculptures around Alcúdia- though ... so credit where credit is due :)
