Visit Nerja


Are you planning to visit Hotel Florida Spa in 2019? Are you willing to be more adventurous and to visit new places?

We hope your answer to both questions is yes as we love seeing you back and we also love to see you enjoying and making the most of your holidays.

This week on our blog we would like to recommend you a visit to Nerja, a beautiful town in Costa del Sol known all over Spain thanks to a famous Spanish TV series from the 80s called “Verano Azul”.

Nerja is a touristic town that still keeps its typical Andalusian charm. It has beautiful beaches, good food and great beaches, so it is a great place to get to spend a day while on holiday in Costa del Sol, even during the winter season.

Nerja is also famous for its stunning caves which were discovered by hazard by 5 teenagers in the late 50s. Inside the caves there are remains of cave paintings of over 42.000 years of age and some impressive stalactites and stalagmites.

If you have not visited Nerja yet here at Hotel Florida Spa we encourage you to do it as you will be able to see with your own eyes one of the many treasures that Costa del Sol has in store for you!

Let’s go shopping!


Last week here on the blog of Hotel Florida Spa we told you about new year’s resolutions and about how most of us, once the year start, decide to get a bit healthier.

This week our blog is also about something that starts as soon as the festive period ends…the sales!

While in most countries these start the day after Christmas, in Spain sales started last Monday, 7th of January, the day after 3 Wise Men Day.

Fuengirola and Mijas are two of the best towns in Costa del Sol to go shopping as we have many shops in the city centre and lots more in our big shopping centres: Miramar Shopping Centre and Corte Inglés Costa Mijas.

The Miramar Shopping Centre has over 140 leisure and shopping spaces. Some of them belonging to important national and international retailers specialised in fashion, accessories and decoration.

On the other hand Centro Comercial Costa Mijas belongs to famous Spanish department store El Corte Inglés. This is a big shopping mall located in Las Lagunas that offers a big selection of products, from food to technology, jewelry, perfumes and cosmetics as well as important national and international fashion brands.

Both shopping centres open from Monday to Saturday from 10:00 A.M. to 10:00 P.M., and although both are a bit distant to Hotel Florida Spa both are easily accessible thanks to the fantastic bus links we have.

The bus lines that connect Fuengirola to the Miramar Shopping Centre are lines 1,4 and 5 and these buses can be taken very close to our hotel, in Avenida Ramón y Cajal.

As for the buses to Costa Mijas, these are lines M127 and M129 and they depart from Fuengirola bus station.

If you are currently on holiday at Hotel Florida Spa or you are planning to visit us soon we recommend you to make the most of the fantastic sales we currently have in Costa del Sol.

Have fun shopping in Fuengirola!

New year’s resolution: Power walking


After a fantastic Christmas during which we have had lots of fun and treats it is time to stop and focus on our New Year’s Resolutions.

Among our resolutions many of us have leading a much healthier life, which implies to eat better and healthier and to do more sports.

We might want to exercise but if we are not fit enough maybe going running or to spending hours at the gym is far too challenging which would mean we could get demotivated and lose interest quite soon.

At any case the best thing to do is to start little by little with light exercises.

Although running is quite trendy nowadays walking is much lighter, and it is also quite good for our health.

When walking becomes training, this is known as Power walking.

When we do power walking our posture, breathing and motion are very important factors.

The best thing is to do non-stop session between 45 and 60-minute-long and do about 5 kilometres and a half at medium-high intensity as this will help us burn around 400 calories.

By simply doing this our respiratory and cardiovascular system will get better and our muscles will tone up.

If right now you are on holiday with us at Hotel Florida Spa, your hotel in Fuengirola, why don’t you make the most of our fantastic weather and amazing promenade and you do a bit of power walking by our beautiful beaches?

Getting fit in Costa del Sol is a delight!
