On 7 December 2005, Spanish agents burts into the hotel restaurant and arrested Croatian general Ante Gotovina, and hotel staff say since then it has become a tourist hit.
“Everyone wants to know where he (Gotovina) sat. They ask what he was eating and drinking and order the same wine. In the last 7 years interest in the general has been big. It is always Croatian guests,” the hotel told 24.sata.hr yesterday.
Gotovina told Vecernji list that whilst he was in jail he received hundreds of postcards from the Tenerife hotel.
Hotel staff said the recently acquitted general was an elegant man who was generous with leaving tips.
