4th Erotic Tapa Route in Fuengirola


November is here and with it the popular Erotic Tapas Route has come to Fuengirola.

This is the 4th year that Fuengirola holds such a funny event. The route is very well known in Costa del Sol and for 18 days (from the 1st to the 18th of November) locals and visitors can enjoy these funny, naughty and imaginative tapas for a really good value as for just 2€ you get a tapa and a drink.

The customers of the 80 participant bars and restaurants will be the ones that, with their votes, will decide who created the best erotic tapa. No doubt choosing such a thing will be tricky as not only they all are very tasty, but they also have really funny names and their looks tend to be hilarious.

To vote for your favourite tapa you will need a tapas passport. This year the passports are in Spanish and English and you can get them in any of the participant establishments. Once your passport is fully stamped you will be able to vote for the best tapa and with your vote you will get the chance of winning several amazing prizes.

Make the most of your stay in Hotel Florida Spa, enjoy Fuengirola and don’t miss its Erotic Tapas Route. We can promise you that not only your belly will be delighted…these naughty tapas will also make you smile.

Halloween Pumpkins


Halloween has arrived at Hotel Florida Spa and with it comes our popular pumpkin contest.

8 of our departments are participating even if Halloween is not a very traditional celebration in Costa del Sol.  Halloween started to get celebrated in Fuengirola very recently and thanks to the good welcoming that it got its popularity has been increasing year after year as many of us simply love to be able to use our imagination and put our creativity in practice.

This is the second year that Hotel Florida Spa does this contest and if last year our staff left us speechless, this year, no doubt, they did it again. The previous contest was won by “Spiderpumpkin”, a spooky creation by the Snack Bar staff, though this time the level is so high that it is very difficult to predict a winner.

“Dr. Frankie”, “Escaroween”, “Pumpkdracula”, “Amanecer”, “Nightmare carriage”, Pumpkin King”, “Skull Killer” and “Mechanic Pumpkin” are competing for the best pumpkin prize. All of them are scarily wonderful, but only one of these terrifying pumpkins can be the winner…Which one could it be? So exciting!!

What about you…Do you have a favourite? If you are staying at Hotel Florida Spa please place your vote in our box; if you are not that lucky to be with us we encourage you to visit our Facebook page to look at our pumpkins in more detail and vote for your favourite. Same as last year the winning department will get a dinner for the whole team…What are you waiting for, help them win!

Happy Halloween!!

Picasso’s Birth House and The Picasso Museum


Picasso, the most relevant Spanish artist worldwide, was born in Malaga on the 25th of October 1881, so in order to commemorate his birth this week Hotel Florida Spa recommends you to visit his Birth House and the Picasso Museum, both in Malaga city centre.

The access to Málaga from Fuengirola in public transport is really good as you can get there by train, taking it in Fuengirola train station.

Picasso’s Birth House is located in the number 15 of Plaza de la Merced so it is easy accessible if walking. In this same square, on a bench near the entrance door of the building, there is a bronze statue of Picasso with which you can get photographed. Inside the house there is an exhibition of his paintings and some pottery works together with some personal items from the famous painter.

The Birth House is open daily and the entrance price is only 1 euro… it is totally worth it!!

On the other hand, the Picasso Museum is located in the Buenavista Palace, a building from the 16th century in calle San Agustín, right in the city centre of Malaga. It holds a permanent collection as well as some temporary exhibitions. The museum also opens daily and next Saturday the 27th of October due to its 9th anniversary the entrance will be free. The entrance is also free the last Sunday of each month after 3:00P.M, so now that you know it you should make the most of it, visit this amazing museum and enjoy the wonderful atmosphere that only the capital of Costa del Sol can provide.

Here in Hotel Florida Spa we encourage you to discover a new much more cultural side of Malaga that most of you might not know and that will certainly impress you…we eagerly expect your comments on Facebook. Enjoy the visit!!
