Francisco Alcaraz joined EHMA in 1997 and due to his large experience in the Hotel Industry, in 1994 took over the position of General Manager of the famous Grand Hotel Bahia del Duque, in Costa Adeje, Tenerife, operated by Sol Melià.
The Hotel is under constant renovation and expansion incorporating new techniques in design and service to constantly improve the already existing high quality of its facilities. Grand Hotel Bahia del Duque was the first De Luxe Hotel built in the south of Tenerife Island. After its inauguration in 1993 and due to different reasons, but undoubtedly also due to its success, many other hotels have been constructed. Also the Bahia del Duque in collaboration with the local authorities, in a clear and decisive way, made the creation of a new destination in the Island of Tenerife possible, known as Costa Adeje.
