New Teatro del Soho


Did you know that world-famous Hollywood actor Antonio Banderas is from Malaga and that he is going to open a new theatre in the capital of Costa del Sol?

The theatre is called Teatro del Soho and it is right in the city centre in calle Córdoba, where former Teatro Alameda was.

Besides a theatre there will also be a great restaurant, which will be managed by well-known bodega El Pimpi, of which Banderas is part owner.  

Its opening play is called “A Chorus Line”, it is a musical that will be on stage until Saturday, the 26th of January 2020, and Antonio Banderas plays the leading role.   

Once it is over in Malaga “A Chorus Line” will go on tour to Bilbao, Madrid and Barcelona, and Spanish performer Pablo Puyol will play the same leading role that Antonio Banderas plays Málaga.

If you are planning on visiting Hotel Florida Spa soon, you love musicals and you are a massive fan of our most international actor we recommend you buy your tickets as soon as possible.  

Tickets are now available online on El Corte Ingles and you can purchase them and check availability by clicking here

Enjoy this unique experience in Malaga!

Fair of Fuengirola 2019


As many of you might already know the Fair of Fuengirola starts this week on Sunday, the 6th of October.

For this reason and because we love sharing our lovely traditions with you on Thursday, the 3rd of October, Hotel Florida Spa has organised at 11:30 A.M. by the pool a great free activity about the fair specially for you!

In it we will give you information about the fair, we will inform you about what is going on in town and at the fairground, we will explain you about the traditional flamenco dress and the accessories that go with it and we will explain you what to eat and drink at the fairground during the fair.

Regarding the official programme of the fair we would like to highlight and recommend the flamenco mass in honour of Virgen del Rosario. Every year this is held on the 7th of October at 10:00 on Constitution Square, right in the city centre.  This mass is not a common one; it does have the wow factor as it is quite festive and most of the many who attend it come wearing beautiful flamenco dresses.

If you want to have fun with us and get some information about the fair, we would love to see you on Thursday at 11:30 in our Snack Bar. By the way, besides good info we will also give a free glass of rebujito, the most popular drink of the fair, to all guests who attend our fun special activity.

Enjoy the fair at Hotel Florida Spa!!

Romeria of Fuengirola 2019


Last week here on the blog of Hotel Florida Spa we informed you that the fair of Fuengirola was coming soon, so today we have the pleasure to recommend you not to miss the first of the many fair related events that will take place in our town: The Romeria of Virgen del Rosario.

The Romeria of Fuengirola is always on the Sunday before the start of the fair, so if you have the fortune of being on holiday with us right now try not to miss it as you will get to experience what a traditional Spanish “romeria” is.

This great event will be held on Sunday the 29th of September. It will start at around 9:30 A.M with a beautiful mass in the Virgen del Rosario Church, located in Plaza de la Constitución right in the town centre.

Once the mass is over, beautiful horses and carriages will join the Virgin of Rosario in a procession that will take her from Fuengirola town centre to Parque del Esparragal in Mijas Costa.

There is no better way to get ready for the fair than attending this very special mass, so if you have no plans for Sunday do not forget to note down this cool one on your diary.

We are sure you will really enjoy it!
