They say you cant keep a good man down, and San Antonio resident, Pepe Rosello, who sadly says goodbye to his beloved Space Club in Playa Den Bossa at the end of next season, is rumored to be moving his business interests to the sunset resort of San Antonio. The island rumour mill went into overdrive last week, when it was suggested that the new owners of Reco des Sol Hotel in San Antonio Bay, a company named, Atenea Sabiduría, had Pepe Rosello backing it. The rumour gained traction when local newspaper, Dario de Ibiza, reported that residents in the area had collected over 800 signatures objecting to the venue being used as a daytime “Hotel Disco” similar to Ushuaia or the nearby Ocean Beach Club.
The Blog understands that Mr Rosello has exciting plans to develop the venue in association with an Ibicenco Hotelier based in Santa Eularia. It is unclear what branding the new Hotel Reco des Sol will run its business under, but a company named, Space Beach Club SA, lists Pepe Rosello as the sole director. The news that the 78 year old entrepreneur is not retiring, will be welcomed by many people, not just in Ibiza, but worldwide. Mr Rosello started his business career at El Refugio in San Antonio back in 1956 and it would be fitting that he should consider ending it there. His first Club was the popular, Playboy Club, which he established in 1962. Exciting times ahead indeed. Stay tuned to the Blog for further updates and gossip emanating from the White Isle as it would be safe to say, that there is plenty of drama yet to come.
