Why Hotel Playa Blanca is an eco-friendly hotel:
In the whole hotel taps and dual-flush toilets are equipped with aeretors and low flow restrictors disposals that, comfortably, limit the water flow, reducing consumption by over 40%.
The large windows allow the maximum amount of natural light to flow into the internal rooms reducing energy use.
Each room has an autonomous heating / air conditioning system which optimizes consumption.
Our hotel uses energy efficient lightning (as for example LED lights). This allows us to save energy on lighting.
We are replacing our appliances (fridges, washing machines, dishwashers, computers) with energy-efficient appliances.
We cover most of our energy demand thanks to our photovoltaic panels.
We control the waste cycle and we would like you to help us by using the different recycling bins (for plastic, glass and paper) located on the ground floor.
We change bed sheets every two/three days and to limit the environmental impact due to the frequent washing of the towels, we will change only the towels left on the floor.
We use non-toxic agent soap and detergent for the rooms and for the hygiene and sanitation of the hotel in order to guarantee low impact on aquatic life.
You will find refilling dispensers in your bathroom.
In our kitchen we use lot of 0 Km, biological and regional products, we prefer using seasonal fruits and vegetables.
In our restaurant we serve micro-filtered water in reusable glass bottles to avoid unnecessary waste.
Where it was possible we have avoided single dose products for breakfast (cereals, honey, yogurts, jam, biscuits) obviously always respecting safety and hygiene rules.
At our reception you can find information about:
- naturalistic itineraries;
- cycling and fat-bike trials;
- boat trips along the inner waterways of the valley and sailing courses in the sailing school;
- water sports: canoeing, windsurfing, sup, catamaran.
Free bikes are our guests’ disposal for trip or moving.
We use bio manure on our garden so that you and your children can walk barefoot. Grass clipping collected during the summer is put in a composter where it turns into humus that we use in wintertime to nourish our plants and hedge.
We encourage children to play outdoor: playing outdoor has educational and health benefits. The outdoor toys you find in the park can have an important role as they can help in social and physical development and they contribute to create an environmental awareness.
