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!
