Meet us: Mónica Lozano

20Août

I’m sure most of you have already met Mónica Lozano, one of our receptionists at Hotel Florida.

Mónica is from Fuengirola and she has been working with us for nearly 6 years.

She says that what she likes the most about working at the hotel is « getting to know people from different places”, so it seems working in reception is her thing.

She also told us that the most beautiful thing a guest has said to her was « that we are the best hotel staff ever and that they felt at home ».

In her spare time she enjoys reading, listening to music, traveling and keeping fit. Well done, Mónica!

Being a native from the area, she recommends us the beautiful beaches of Los Boliches and Torreblanca, and also a well-known restaurant in Fuengirola called « Casa Roberto », located in the city centre ( Calle España, 8), which opened its doors for the first time in 1968. You can’t miss this restaurant if you are a golf lover.

Mónica wishes you keep visiting us, so pay attention to her picture, because when next time you come she could be the one in reception.

If you already know her and you want to send her a message, remember that you can do it on Facebook.
