All three properties of Tenerife's family-run group, Adrián Hoteles, have made it into the top 10 of Spain's most sustainable hotels, voted by users of popular rating site TripAdvisor. The 5* Hotel Jardines de Nivaria leads the ranking, voted the best hotel for sustainability, while 4* Hotel Colón Guanahani and 5* Roca Nivaria Gran Hotel hold the third and ninth positions respectively. The three Adrián Hoteles properties are the only hotels in the Canary Islands that have made it into TripAdvisor's eco ranking.
Rafael Adrián, owner of Adrián Hoteles, comments on this recognition: “We are delighted that our three hotels are in the top 10 of the best environmentally-friendly properties in Spain –two of them making the top 3. This accolade is especially important for us as votes come directly from customers – it always feels gratifying to be awarded by them.”
The eco-survey is judged by taking into account both the quality and quantity of the ratings from the users of TripAdvisor. Those that achieve the highest ratings receive Platinum Level status within the site's Green Leaders programme, created to recognise those hotels which are committed to green practices.
This latest accolade follows earlier recognition for Adrián Hoteles in sustainability, including the 'Travelife Gold' certificate that ABTA (Association of British Travel Agents) awarded the group's three hotels earlier this year due to their commitment to sustainable tourism. Also, all three properties have the EMAS (the EU Eco-Management and Audit Scheme) and ISO 14001 certifications in place, together with training and education programmes on green practices for both staff and guests.
