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!

Fuengirola Christmas light show


Last week, here on the blog of Hotel Florida Spa, your holiday in Fuengirola, we recommended you visit the capital of Costa del Sol to see its stunning Christmas lights.

Today our suggestion is again very Christmassy, but this time you won’t have to go that far to enjoy it.

Why? Because in Fuengirola we are very lucky to also have beautiful Christmas lights with music and light effects.

The music and light Christmas show is on daily at 7:00 P.M., 7:30 P.M., 8:00 P.M., 8:30 P.M. and 9:00 P.M., until the 6th of January, in the giant bauble set on Plaza de España, right in the centre of Fuengirola.

Well, if you have decided to celebrate the festive season here with us at Hotel Florida Spa, we recommend you make the most of your stay by visiting the centre of Fuengirola to see how beautiful our town looks this special time of the year.
