Hotel Angela calling all poets

22Jan

Are you into writing? Are you good at poetry?

After so many years getting to know you and reading your suggestions we are aware that many of you are very creative people.

This has been the reason why Hotel Angela has decided to make the most of your skills to create something beautiful together.

Well, just before our refurbishment project started we received this beautiful poem from Mrs. Gerrard which made us have an idea…why not asking you to write something  beautiful related to Hotel Angela in order to share it with the rest of the guests?

After a lot of thinking we decided that the best thing to do would be to put all poems together somewhere in the hotel so this way everybody could read them and enjoy them plus this would also mean that a “little bit of you” would remain in Hotel Ángela even when home.

So dear guests take a paper and a pen, let your imagination run free and start writing.

The deadline is Wednesday the 20th of February and staff will choose the best 10 ones.

To send your poems please email us on rrpp@mlhoteles.com

Thanks a lot for your cooperation! We really are looking forward to reading everything you send us!

Get to know: Paco Leal

16Jan

We have already introduced you to the architect and the decorator of our big project, so the last person involved in the project that we want to introduce you to (being the last doesn’t mean at all that he is less important, far from it!) is our mate Paco Leal, the maintenance service manager of our chain of hotels, and the person in charge of the refurbishment.

As Paco works for the Angela many of you might already know him and know how friendly he is. Anyway, here we leave you the interview we did to him so you can get to know a little bit more about him:

How long have you been working with us?

I’ve been working for over 24 years! Such a long time now!

What has been your biggest challenge?

This project has been quite complex, so no doubt, the biggest challenge is finishing it on time.

This autumn we have had many rainy days. Did the weather affect the works?

No, to be honest, it has not affected at all, as we have kept on working even when it was raining. Since we started on the 1st of November we have not really stopped.

What part of the hotel are you willing to see finished?

The swimming pool! Mainly because it was the most difficult part of this project.

Tell us any anecdotes or something funny that has happened while working?

The whole refurbishing process is full of anecdotes. Lots of funny things have happened. I would like to share with you an anecdote that happened just a few days ago, though it is not about the refurbishment. Every year on 3 Wise Men Day I get dressed up as King Baltasar. Last year talking to a little girl I said that the 3 Wise Men hand presents but that nobody gives us any, so this year it seems that she remembered it and that same girl came and gave me a picture she had done as present. That beautiful gesture moved me.

How many people are working in the refurbishing?

We are about 40, some of them are external personnel and some, like me, are members of staff.

Would you like to send a message to our guests?

Of course I do! I would like to tell them that I hope they love the result because we are working with all the love and dedication in the world.

Thanks a lot for the interview, Paco! You are a great professional so we are sure the result is going to be amazing and we all are going to love it.

Would you like to leave Paco a message or ask him something we didn’t? Do it on Facebook!

We will keep on informing you in here about many things that you might find interesting. Keep on visiting our blog!

Merry Christmas!

24Déc

Yes! Tomorrow is Christmas day! As you all know, Christmas has always been something very special to us in Hotel Angela as it’s a day to spend with the family and after so many years sharing great moments with you, we all have become a big family.

This year because of the refurbishment celebrating Christmas together will not be possible, but no sadness is allowed as this means that next year we will celebrate it more and in a great way!

Also every day that passes means our meeting is getting closer. Despite Hotel Angela’s staff is currently enjoying a well deserved holiday, we all wanted to wish you a very happy Christmas and wonderful day, hoping you have a great time dining with your loved ones!…by the way, what are you going to dine and who will be the chef? Will you miss our traditional Christmas dinner?

We will certainly miss it, same as we will miss our lovely Boxing Day.

In order to feel you closer, please tell us about your Christmas plans on Facebook, we want to know what you are going to do!

Merry Christmas to you all! Soon the Hotel Angela family will be reunited!
