Sharetime spoke with Charlie Millar, chairman of Club Casablanca, and asked for his thoughts on why the resort continues to enjoy success.
Club Casablanca opened 28 years ago and comprises 11 connected apartment blocks, each with its own lift, which creates an inner amphitheater with well-tended gardens.
Resort facilities including the pool, bar and bowling green are contained within this spacious amphitheater. For a small fee, secure parking is available in the basement beneath the resort.
Other facilities include a restaurant/bar with regular live entertainment, games room, laundry, 24-hour multi-lingual reception, Wi-Fi connection throughout, gym (subject to payment of a small fee) and satellite television.
Tell us a little about the history of Club Casablanca?
The resort opened in 1986 and, from its concept, was set up to run as a dual operation – timeshare and tour operator. The timeshare side has 161 apartments and the hotel has 126 apartments.
The resort, as a whole, has been managed by the same company together with the club’s committee for the last 28 years. This relationship has proven to be beneficial to both sides, contributing in no small way to the resort’s success.
Although originally conceived as a ‘British-member’ resort, the club’s membership base now comprises 40 per cent British, 25 per cent German, 25 per cent French, 10 per cent Italians and Scandinavians.
