Costa Rica Travel – A new hotel, Hotel W, will start operations in November, as the construction is in its final phase and progressing nicely.
The hotel is in the Reserva Conchal real estate complex. It has 151 rooms.
The initial investment was announced in 2015 and was expected to open in 2019. It is ahead of schedule. It is the newest addition to the complex which also includes the Playa Conchal Hotel, the Westin Golf Resort and SPA, a wildlife refuge and a golf course.
The Fifco company is already receiving job applications for the hotel, in areas including cooking, sales, administration and training. The hotel will generate a total of about 300 direct jobs. The company also seeks to give jobs to locals, helping them out of poverty, in various ways such as maintaining a vegetable garden that will supply food to the nearby hotels.
This hotel has a positive effect on the community. It has carbon neutrality certifications, a waste recovery center for recycling, the largest solar power system in the North Pacific, and it has donated a plot of land to create a police delegation.
