At Hoteles Andaluces con Encanto we remain firm in our commitment to sustainability and care for the environment. Every day we strive to implement measures that reduce the environmental footprint in our hotels and restaurants, maintaining the highest standards in the experience that we want to offer our customers.

Less plastics

At HACE we are progressively eliminating plastic from our hotels, as part of our commitment to the environment and sustainable tourism, which has even led us to be recognized with prestigious environmental awards in the hotel sector.

Our hotels have withdrawn single-dose breakfast buffets to prioritize bulk products that avoid the use of plastic wrap. In addition, in the picnic and takeaway food we use paper bags, wooden cutlery, ecological napkins and cardboard wrappers, eliminating the plastic waste that is usually generated in this take away service for our customers.

They are a fundamental part of this change, so their collaboration is essential to ensure that plastics are no longer part of our services.


Environmental certification

The Hoteles HACE group has obtained the ISO UNE 14,001 certification for good environmental management and ISO UNE 9,001 for Quality for some of its hotels in Jerez and Rota, as a sign of its concern and continuous work to implement systems that respect the environment and work with the highest quality in all processes. The certifications have been granted by the certifying company SGS.

Specifically, the Duque de Nájera and Playa de la Luz hotels, in Rota, have obtained both certifications: the environmental one (ISO UNE 14,001) and the quality one (ISO UNE 9,001), while the Hotel Jerez & Spa and the Hotel Villa Jerez have achieved environmental certification (ISO UNE 14.001) In addition, the four hotels in the chain have different Ecostars certificates in recognition of policies in favor of environmental sustainability.


Energy measures

We can proudly say that the Hotel Jerez & Spa was the first in Jerez to have electric car charging points when this service was incorporated in April 2021, and this was reflected in the local media at the time.

In Rota, the Hotel Duque de Nájera and Hotel Playa de la Luz have also incorporated charging points for electric cars, as part of their commitment to the environment.

In addition, we are carrying out studies to incorporate, soon in our Hotels, photovoltaic panels for energy supply. Photovoltaic solar energy does not emit greenhouse gases, so it does not contribute to global warming. In fact, it is shown to be one of the most efficient renewable technologies in the fight against climate change.



Ecostars Certification

In our group we are in luck since our 4 hotels obtained the Ecostars certification. It is a specific sustainability certification for hotels that is granted by carrying out a study of the environmental impact per stay that a hotel has. This is evaluated based on the following axes: energy, water, CO2 footprint, recycling, products, sustainable food and finally the social sphere.


Organic garden and animation

In the facilities of the Hotel Playa de la Luz we have created an organic garden that allows the buffet to offer organic products for the preparation of some typical dishes of the area. This orchard has been cared for by the children who have been staying at our facilities during the summer season.


In addition, the animation team of the Hotel has in its program of activities some related to the environment, among others:

1.- Visit to the Mayetería Center.

In this place they show how crops were grown in the area, types of vegetables that are planted: tomatoes, pumpkins, etc., the tools that were used, the artisanal irrigation systems, etc.

2.- Visit to parks.

In the parks we can see our native plants, cataloged and distributed by area. We can also see, on some occasions, specimens of chameleons, a native and protected animal.

3.- Visit to the corrals and pine forests.

They are very old artisan fishing constructions distributed along the coast, which in Rota are next to the Playa de la Luz Hotel. It is a curious survival of the art of fishing from other times, which is still used on our coasts. There are eight artificial enclosures, surrounded by a kind of walls built with porous stones from the sea, called oyster stone, perfectly fitted together, in which seaweed and a conglomerate of mollusks, shells of others, oysters, and others Species that grow on the stones act as mortar, joining the stones together. When the tide rises, the enclosures are flooded with water and fish, and when the tide goes out, the water escapes between the stones, leaving the fish trapped inside, hence its name.

Environmental care measures

These are the main environmental care measures that we implement:

– Containment in the Production of Contaminating Residues or

  • most of it as municipal waste.

  • Reduction of paper consumption throughout the Hotel by implementing the QR Code (Quick Response) in: Directory in Rooms, Letters of Restaurants and Bars etc.


HACE, committed to the environment
