Pool complex numbers soar

Puerto de la Cruz - 28.08.2009 - After a poor first five months of 2009, the Martiánez complex drew 12% more users in June and July (162,000 over the two months) compared to the same period in 2008. Council sources say the upturn is a direct result of the decision to switch the running of the resort's flagship pools to the Department of Tourism back in March. It expects the user figures for August to be even better.
