8th Edition of La Cazuela de la Abuela


The weather here might be absolutely brilliant, but it is winter after all, so there is nothing better than having some lovely comfort food, and this is why Fuengirola organizes the popular food route called “La Cazuela de la Abuela” around this time of year.

This year in fact will be its 8th edition and many local bars and restaurants will participate in it. From Friday the 8th till Sunday the 24th of March they all will offer a delicious casserole and a drink (glass of wine, beer, soft drink or water) for only 2€.

As in the past 6 year, the Rivera Beach Club, which belongs to our sister hotel Hotel Yaramar, will also participate this year with a tasty traditional casserole from Barbate (Cadiz) that has red tuna, potato, pepper, onion, carrot, wine and spices as main ingredients… It sounds lovely, right?

If you are currently on holiday in Hotel Florida Spa, your hotel in Fuengirola, and love Spanish food we certainly recommend you to try the new amazing casserole chef Salvador from the Rivera Beach Club has prepared for you all this year and to vote for it!

We also would like to wish Salvador best of luck and hope becomes a finalist as in some of the past editions!

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!
