The member of staff of Hotel Florida Spa chosen this February to be the star of this blog section is Isabel Jurado, the manager of our spa.

Isabel has been working in Hotel Florida Spa since it opened its doors in 2006 and she says that what she likes the most about her job is having the chance of meeting many people from different places.

Isabel emphasises the generosity and friendliness of our guests as on many occasions she has been given presents and been praised for her job.

She comments that she likes almost all kind of music and that apart from listening to music in her spare time she enjoys playing sports, reading and going to the cinema.

When in Fuengirola she recommends you to visit the Sohail Castle, the monument par excellence of the city, and to have a meal in Restaurante Charolais, one of the most popular restaurants in town.

And before finishing off Isabel would like to thank you for the praise she gets and also for choosing Hotel Florida as your holiday hotel.

Are you staying in Hotel Florida Spa the next few days? Do you enjoy traditional Spanish food? If the answer is yes we are going to tell you something you might like!

From the 15th of February till the 3rd of March the second edition of “La Cazuela de la Abuela” will take place in Fuengirola. This local initiative is very recent as it was launched for the first time last year, being very well received by the public and becoming a big success.

Its main aim is to introduce new dishes to visitors and to encourage the big gastronomic offer of the city by promoting the most traditional Spanish recipes. Another good thing about it is the price as for just for 2 Euros you will enjoy a delicious soupy dish and a drink…Great, right?

All establishments participating in this event aim to win the Gold, Silver or Bronze Casserole prize if their recipes are the ones with more votes so in order to let people know which are participating in “La Cazuela de la Abuela” they will place the logo of the event by its entrance.

Look for this logo when walking around town and make the most of your stay in Hotel Florida Spa, your hotel in Fuengirola, by trying these tasty and hot typical dishes…You can’t ask for more for such a good value!

Muelle Uno

Do you know the new Port of Malaga? If your answer is no we recommend you to visit it when staying in Hotel Florida Spa as it is well worth it.

Nowadays the Port of Malaga is not simply a marina or a commercial, passenger, cruise and fishing port but also a modern outdoor shopping area called Muelle Uno with many shops, leisure areas and also very good quality restaurants.

This new concept of port, in very little time, has become one of the most important tourist attractions in Malaga city mainly because wandering around on a lovely sunny day is one of the most pleasurable activities you can enjoy when visiting the capital of Costa del Sol.

Not only the relaxing sound of water, the reflection of the sun on the water or the stunning yachts docked there are breathtaking, also the beautiful views that from there you have of the Cathedral and the Alcazaba are.

As we have commented on previous posts, the access to Malaga city from Fuengirola is very easy, as there is a train station located in Fuengirola city centre that connects it not only to Malaga city but also to other towns in Costa del Sol like Benalmadena or Torremolinos. Trains run very frequently so visiting Malaga city is not only easy but also comfy.

If you are currently staying with us in Hotel Florida Spa, your hotel in Fuengirola, make the most of one of the warm and sunny winter days that at the moment we have to visit Malaga city and have a nice walk around Muelle Uno… We are sure that you will agree with us when we say that Malaga is looking more beautiful than ever!
