Grupo Fuertes and Magic Costa Blanca have agreed to acquire the Marina d’Or resort, located in Oropesa del Mar (Castellón), from US investment fund Farallon Capital Management.
Marina d’Or Ciudad de Vacaciones is one of the best known family resorts in Europe and has 5, 4 and 3 star hotels, tourist flats, seven amusement and theme parks, shops, restaurants and nightclubs. After being taken over four years ago, it closed its doors last month, cancelling all bookings.
With its future up in the air, it was announced today that Grupo Fuertes and Magic Costa Blanca are the new owners. Both companies will join forces with the aim of relaunching this project under a new tourist concept and placing it among the best holiday resorts in Europe. The operation, which is currently being studied by the National Commission for Markets and Competition (CNMC), is awaiting authorisation from this body. Grupo Fuertes and Magic Costa Blanca have counted on Garrigues and Rosillo Rein, as legal and real estate advisors, respectively.
