The other day we had the pleasure of meeting Marja Lennes, a Finnish author who has written nine crime/thriller novels. She and her co-author, Pirjo Peltoniemi, actually write under the pen name Kirsi Merimaan and are on the Costa del Sol promoting their latest novel. We ran into Marja in the reception area of the hotel as she was having her photo taken for a local Finnish magazine which is writing a feature about her.

The popular Over 50’s Show is returning to Estepona this November. Sunset Beach Club participates in Over 50’s shows run by the same organisers in Dublin and Galway and we certainly recommend it to anyone looking to spend a fun and educational day out. And you don’t have to be ‘over 50’ to attend as activities and attractions are not age specific.
This admission-free lifestyle event aims to provide the Costa del Sol’s senior community with an entertaining, educational and informative experience. There’s lots happening during the event with visitors able to enjoy the following activities:
Benalmádena is a fantastic holiday destination for all types of traveller, especially families with children.
Here at Sunset Beach Club we are constantly on the lookout for interesting information about our wonderful resort which we can then pass on to our guests to help them plan their holiday. That’s what this blog is all about… sharing useful information about Benalmadena and the Costa del Sol in general.
If you’re staying with us, you can always head up to the Leisure Desk located on the 6th floor of the hotel (next to the main entrance) and ask Susanna about the best tourist attractions in Benalmadena. If not, you can use this blog post as your very own guide to the best places to visit.
The Fuengirola Fair starts on Monday the 6th October. This is one of the most popular festivities in Andalusia and the highlight of the town’s entertainment calendar.
From the 6th to the 12th October all who visit Fuengirola are in for a fun and entertaining time! The ‘Feria del Rosario’ (named after the town’s patron saint) is the perfect opportunity to experience a true taste of Spanish culture.
During the day you can visit many of the different ‘casetas’ where your flamenco dancing skills will be put to the test! Alternatively, you can just sample some of the delicious food and drinks on offer; we recommend you try the typical Andalucian feria drink called a ‘rebujito’ a refreshing mix manzanilla or fino wine, lemonade and lots of ice.
October is ‘Soul Time’ here at Sunset Beach Club!
For the 6th year running, our friends at Goldsoul – well established UK Soul event promoters – are coming back for a fun week of the best tunes, lots of dancing and, of course, sunshine!!!
Soul music lovers can enjoy their daily dose of Classic Soul tunes by the hotel’s Tikki Poolside Bar whilst enjoying a cool jug of Sangria and working on their tans!
After a hard day by the pool, the fun continues in the Panorama Bar with some laid back soul from 6 to 9pm. This includes the ever-popular happy hour and the chance to catch up and watch the latest live Premiership or Champions League football matches.
This weekend, our neighbours in Torremolinos celebrate their local festivities in honour of their patron. The ‘Feria de San Miguel’ is the biggest event of the year and offers 4 days (from 26th to 29th September) of fun and entertainment to all who visit the town.
There’s lots going on over the course of these 4 days and below we’ve put together 4 reasons why we think you should visit the Torremolinos fair this weekend. It’s a great opportunity to experience true Spanish culture and have a blast whilst you’re at it!
Many golfers still prefer to walk a golf course rather than whiz around in a buggy.
Here on the Costa del Sol we are fortunate to have a wonderful and varied choice of golf courses to play. Some require a buggy as they are located in and around the hills overlooking the coast, others are walking-friendly and are perfect for those of you who prefer to carry (or pull) your golf bag around 18 holes.
Many of our guests at Sunset Beach Club are keen golfers so we thought we’d put together a quick list of our favourite courses which don’t require a buggy. At the end of the post we’ve embedded a map which shows where each of the courses is located.
During the summer, we introduced our fantastic value lunch menus and the special paella offers, and the feedback from our guests was extremely positive; at 12€ for a 3 course meal, it’s no surprise that these menus were a great success!
As we enter the Autumn and Winter seasons and the days become shorter, many of our guests, especially those from the northern hemisphere, enjoy having an early dinner in our restaurant. So, we’ve just recently introduced a new ‘Early Bird’ menu which is available every day from 6:30pm to 7:30pm.
