Their aim is to acknowledge the hotels and their managers for their contribution to the innovation of a sector in constant development and that seeks to continually reinvent itself and cause a sensation. Achieving one of these awards contributes to the prestige of those who work to improve the tourist industry, which is the main engine of Spain's economy. In 2016 we celebrate the eleventh edition of these awards.
