It is almost Christmas


It is unbelievable how the year has gone so quickly, December is almost here, and Christmas can now be felt in the air.

As you know at Hotel Florida Spa we all love Christmas as everybody is much happier and towns and cities look beautiful with lovely Christmas lights and decorations.

Malaga is in fact one of the most popular cities in Spain for its beauty during Christmas, as its city centre, and especially calle Larios, looks absolutely stunning this time of year.

Christmas lights in Calle Larios are always amazing, but this year the expectation is even bigger as the design is new and it is inspired in the cathedral of Malaga.

Malaga’s Christmas lighting ceremony 2017 will be on Friday the 24th of November, around 7:30 P.M. From that day, till the 6th of January, the beautiful lights will be on daily from 6:30 P.M. till 2:00 A.M.

As last year, there will be a music and light show twice a day, at 6:30 and 9:30. The music chosen this time is “Wizards in Winter” by Trans-Siberian Orchestra, “Feliz Navidad” by Boney M and “Christmas Festival” by The Boston Pops Orchestra.

Well, if you are on holiday right now at Hotel Florida Spa or you are planning to come soon, we recommend you not to miss a visit to Malaga city centre.

You will end up full of Christmas spirit!

Erotic Tapas Route of Fuengirola 2017


It has been a while since we last talked about gastronomy here on the blog of Hotel Florida Spa, so this week we are delighted to announce the arrival of the popular Erotic Tapas Route of Fuengirola.

Due to its success this will be its 9th edition, as since it first started in 2009 the number of visitors who come to town to experience it has well increased.

This year the Erotic Tapas Route will start this Friday, the 3rd of November, and will be on till Sunday the 19th of November; All participant establishments will offer a tapa and a drink for a fixed price of 2,50€.   

By the way, Rivera Beach Club that belongs to our sister hotel, Hotel Yaramar, will participate once again, for the 4th year in a row, in this fun food contest with an amazing tapa.

The tapa is called “Mons Venus”, has been created with love by chef Salvador, and it has watercress, fried squid, parmesan oil and onion jam as main ingredients… it sounds beautiful, right?

We would like to wish Salvador and all the staff in the Rivera Beach all the best. We are sure they will end up in a very high position.

If you have the fortune of currently being on holiday at Hotel Florida Spa and got a bit hungry and a bit curious after reading this post, Salvador and the rest of his team will be delighted to see you at the Rivera Beach Club.

Bon appétit!
