Nicaragua's Ministerio de Salud Grants Health and Sanitation Permit to Beneficial Holdings' Hotel

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - March 23, 2010) -  Beneficial Holdings, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: BFHJ), a casino and hospitality investment and management holding company, through its subsidiary Recreaciones Beneficial, S.A., owns the Hotel Beneficial in Managua, Nicaragua.

The Company received notification that the Nicaraguan Ministerio de Salud granted the hotel permission to operate. The Government of Nicaragua performs a diligent review of hotels and restaurants that includes a physical inspection requiring all employees to undertake a medical examination. This review process is one of the reasons why hotels and restaurants in Nicaragua have a reputation for cleanliness and sanitation.

"We are pleased that the managers of Hotel Beneficial demonstrated to the Nicaraguan Ministry of Health that our hotel met the requirements for a health permit. Beneficial Holdings appreciates that the Government of Nicaragua has designed an efficient system to assure that hotels are safe for tourists and we believe that their program will increase tourism to their country and to our present and future hotels," Alex Papic, Vice President of Beneficial Holdings, said.

Now that Hotel Beneficial passed the health requirements necessary to serve food to its guests, management has applied to the Policia Nacional for a permit to serve alcoholic beverages to its guests. Management believes that the police will tour the facility this week.

"We're planning a grand opening celebration for early April, but management informs me that the facility will be open before then. We'll have pictures of our chef and staff on our website soon," Papic explained.

People traveling to Managua can make reservations at Hotel Beneficial by sending an email to reserve@hotelbeneficial.com.
