Puerto Marina


This week Hotel Florida Spa recommends you to visit the marina of the neighbour town of Benalmádena. It is commonly known as Puerto Marina and only 1 month ago it celebrated its 30th anniversary.

Puerto Marina is one of the main tourist attractions in Benalmádena. Its peculiar architecture makes it one of the best known marinas in Europe and one of the most popular places in Costa del Sol.

There you can find restaurants, discos, shops and an aquarium among many other establishments. There is also a sailing and a diving school, so not only offers sports related services but also a big choice of leisure.

It has received the “best marina in the world” award twice and it has a permanent blue flag due to the quality of its water, the wonderful weather we enjoy in Costa del Sol and the many services this place offers.

Also many impressive big boats are tied up in there, so this is a perfect place to visit, take a look and have a great time.

The access to Puerto Marina from Fuengirola is really good as you can get there very easily by taking a bus from the bus station located in the city centre not far from our hotel. This is one of the main reasons why Hotel Florida Spa, your hotel in Fuengirola, encourages you to explore and discover the many wonderful places hidden in Costa del Sol. There is no doubt the experience will be amazing!

Meet us: María Coín


This November Hotel Florida Spa dedicates this special section to María Coín, who has been working in our offices for over 7 years.

María is from Malaga and her birthday is next Friday, the 23rd of NovemberHappy birthday, María!

She says that what she likes the most about working in a hotel is to see guests looking happy and enjoying their stay.

In these 7 years with us she has had many funny moments, though the one she remembers the most is linked to one of the great personnel parties, organised by the hotel every year. It seems that in one of these parties two members of staff did a performance. It was a comical sketch about the hotel, which made them have a wonderful evening. The performance was so funny that María remembers how she couldn’t stop laughing…It seems we have many members of staff with a great talent for comedy, so it makes sense that many of you have such a happy time when you stay with us.

María told us that her favourite kind of music is pop music and salsa. She also loves going shopping, going to the beach for a walk and doing aerobics. She confessed that she has the habit of drinking water as soon as she gets up and before going to bed…What a healthy girl she is!

When in Fuengirola she recommends you to visit the Sohail Castle and to stop in one of the well known restaurants that Fuengirola has, a good example is Mesón “El Caballo”.

When we asked her about her ideal holidays she opts for a “sun and beach” holiday, though she is also interested in cultural tourism…so if you like the same kind of holiday as her, do not doubt to choose Costa del Sol as your holiday destination.

To finish off María wanted to send you the following message:

“I’m very grateful to our guests for the trust they place in us. Also to all these people who are looking for a place to stay for their next holiday, I would like to tell you not to hesitate, come to Fuengirola and stay in Hotel Florida Spa, you won’t regret it”.

Follow her suggestion, as she well said, you won’t regret it!

Cultural Japanese Week


Are you passionate about Japanese culture? Do you love sushi?  If the answer is yes Hotel Florida Spa recommends you participate in the different activities organised in Malaga city for its Cultural Japanese Week.

The Cultural Japanese Week started last Saturday the 10th of November and it will finish on Sunday the 18th. During this week you will have the chance of discovering Japanese culture through classes and shows, exhibitions, films, martial arts demonstrations and an innovative Japanese tapas route. It is difficult to imagine a Japanese tapa, right?  Well, on the occasion of this cultural week a few Japanese restaurants in Malaga City have decided to offer a Japanese speciality as a tapa. The tapas are very good value for money and they include a drink, which is an amazing idea as it combines the best of Spanish tradition with the best of the Japanese cuisine.

As we have pointed out in other occasions the access to Malaga from Hotel Florida Spa is really good as you can get there by train taking it in Fuengirola train station, located right in the city centre.

To get more information about all the interesting activities organised by the Asian Cultural Centre and the City Council’s Culture Area you can click here to have access to the whole programme. This way you will be able to decide which activities you are more interested in.

From here we encourage you to participate as this is one of the most curious events in Costa del Sol. Visit Malaga and at the same time enjoy Japan. We are sure that you will have a delightful time!
