Fair of Malaga 2019

12Aug

It is mid-August and this time of year is when the city of Malaga celebrates its fair.

This year the Fair of Malaga will start on Thursday the 15th of August, which is also a national bank holiday, and it will be on until Saturday the 24th.

Although the dates can vary a bit the fair is always on in mid-August as it commemorates the reconquest of Malaga by the Catholic Monarchs on the 19th of August 1487.

The Fair of Malaga is one of the most awaited events of the year not only by locals but also by visitors.

This amazing festival still has a traditional side even if it is quite cosmopolitan and international due to the big number of visitors from all over the world who visit the city willing to enjoy it.

If at the moment you are on holiday at Hotel Florida Spa, your hotel in Fuengirola, we certainly recommend you to visit this fantastic fair which is held from the morning to the early evening in the historical centre of Malaga, around the beautiful and well known Calle Larios.

There you will have the opportunity to see stunning flamenco dresses, to watch people dancing the traditional sevillanas and to enjoy some fantastic music performances. Besides, you can also try some delicious tapas and amazing local wines in a cheerful and happy environment. 

As you know getting to Malaga from our hotel is cheap and easy thanks to the train service that connects Fuengirola with Malaga cityEnjoy the fair!

San Juan’s Night 2019

17Jun

This week is a very special one at Hotel Florida Spa as this Sunday evening  we celebrate San Juan’s Night.

In the past, here on the blog of Hotel Florida Spa, we have told you about San Juan and have explained that the reason why it is such an important date all over Costa del Sol is because we celebrate the oficial start of summer.

For this reason, as in previous years, Hotel Florida Spa has prepared a very special event, together with Hotel Yaramar and Hotel Angela, so we all can celebrate and share together such a unique night.

The night of the 23rd of June, around 10:30 P.M. in Chiringuito Rivera (the Beach Club that belongs to our sister hotel, Hotel Yaramar) there will be a very special party for all guests from Hotel Yaramar, Hotel Angela, and of course, Hotel Florida Spa.

There we will do our traditional “júas” competition between the hotels; there will be live music from popular duo “Esperanto”; as well as free glass of sangría for our guests, and a special offer just for that night of one skewer or sardines and one drink for only 5€.

By the way, regarding the “júas”, if you are currently at Hotel Florida Spa and you really enjoy doing crafts we would like to inform you that on Saturday the 22nd , from 11:30 A.M, Gema, the person in charge of our entertainment, will be at the Snack Bar and she will need your help to create the “júas” that will represent Hotel Angela in this Sunday’s competition between hotels.

The prize of this contest, as every year, is an extra hour of Happy Hour for the winning hotel, on the 24th of June.

Happy San Juan’s Night, and may the best “júas” win! See you on Sunday in the Rivera Beach Club!
