A friend has told me she emailed someone at Sis Pins who told her they didn't have any management at the moment but were hopeful this would change. I will find out who she emailed and if there is any further info available.

We've been trying to get in touch with Josep,manager at Singala since we heard the news about Globespan. However the only contact we had for him was through his singala e-mail and phone number and we have had no luck trying to get in touch with him.
Does anyone know of any way to contact him?

I've been in contact with Mr Biblioni at the SiS Pins and there's still nothing sorted out. Just got a refund today for my June 2010 booking and really keen to get back into the Sis Pins :-)

Default Sis Pins

We were booked in to the Sis Pins from 22 May 2010 for a week. We still have our flights booked. We are desperate to find out the new owners so that we can re-book with them. Any idea how we go aboout finding out?

Speaking today to someone who worked at Sis Pins, she said they might be opening but nothing is finally decided.

My Mum went to PP last year with a friend. It was her first time staying in the resort and she went on my recommendation. She loves the island but I was worried as she hadn't been back to the North since a holiday 7 years ago in which my Dad died suddenly. She is very fussy and hard to please and because of all these factors I was worried she wouldn't enjoy it but she loved it particularly sitting at Sis Pins watching the world go by!

I was delighted and was going to book her in for a week this year but that's all up in the air now. I hope they re-open!!!!

With the demise of Globespan, who owned them both, and now the problems the administrators have with E Clear, namely, the latter haven't got Globespan's 35m, these two hotels represent two tangible assets the administrators will wish to raise as much as possible thereon.

That said, will a sale be quick or otherwise in the current economic climate and we are talking of a couple of jewels here, specially the Sis Pins. Might a buyer be the local Pollensa hotels group or other local interests?

And how quickly , if sold, can both be got up and running and marketing themselves?

Lots of questions there then.

Perhaps the best way that we on the Forum will learn will be from some of our locally based people tapping in to the local grapevine.

Great staff at both and hopefully they will be in employment with new owners soon.

I'm confused - I thought that Sis Pins was owned by an English couple who had owned it since the 60s. Their son was one of the owners of Little Italy.

I strongly suspect that the HOSPA group who own many of Puerto Pollensa's prestige hotels (like the Illa Dor, Daina etc) will be making a bid for the Sis Pins.

I think Globespan bought them within the last few years

Ok this may just be a rumour but I've been told today that the Sis Pins won't be opening this summer. I'm pretty amazed but time is getting on and if they are not taking bookings now it's not looking good!
