Malaga FC Home games

Many of our guests are avid football fans and often enquire about Malaga FC’s home games. Going to one of Malaga’s home games is a great afternoon out and the atmosphere at the La Rosaleda stadium is absolutely amazing.

The club’s amazing run of form in the Spanish league and their recent (last night!) qualification for the knock out stages of the Champions League means that their popularity is set to soar to new heights!

So we’ve decided to put together a list of Malaga FC’s home games for this season in case you fancy heading down to watch a live game whilst you are here on holiday. The big games against Real Madrid and Barcelona will be played over the Christmas period (22nd December and 13th January) but tickets are selling fast so if you plan on going we’d recommend you buy your tickets ASAP!

Benalmadena Sightseeing Bus

Benalmadena Sightseeing Bus

One of the activities we tend to recommend to guests who stay with us is a guided tour of Benalmadena on the sightseeing tourist bus. This is undoubtedly the best way to see all the great attractions Benalmadena has to offer its visitors.

Last week the local council announced that it had introduced a new route to the tourist bus, one that includes a visit to Benalmadena Town (the one up in the mountains) and all its cultural treats. This new itinerary includes the impressive Buddhist Temple, the Butterfly Park, the ‘Felipe Orlando’ Pre-columbine museum and the uniqueness of a typical andalusian village with its white buildings and narrow cobbled streets.

Selwo Marina Nights

Music under the stars...

The warm summer evenings on the Costa del Sol become a little more bearable with the fantastic evening exhibition which our friends at Selwo Marina have prepared for this summer.

As from last Saturday 16th July – and until the 31st August – visitors to this magical park will be able to enjoy a spectacular dolphin exhibition accompanied by a selection of classic and contemporary melodies. A violin and saxophone duet will play tunes that’ll have the spectators and the stars of the show – Zeus, Tonet, Rumbo, Astro, Romeo and Bravo (Selwo’s dolphin family) dancing under the stars!

The music and dolphin acrobatics will be accompanied by a specially designed show of light and colour which will fill the night sky.

The show starts at 10:30pm every evening and is priced at €20 per adult and €15 per child (aged 3 to 9 years); however, we recommend you take advantage of the great special offer available which allows you to enjoy access to the dolphin show and a meal at one of the parks fast food outlets for just €2 more per person; that’s a total of €22 for adults and €17 for children. :-)

If you’d like more information, please ask at the Sunset Beach Club leisure desk located on the 6th floor of the hotel.

Concerts on the Costa del Sol

Just some of the great artists playing on the Costa del Sol this summer

At the start of last summer we wrote a blog post highlighting the main music concerts on the Costa del Sol over the summer. Well, it proved so popular that we’ve decided to do the same for this summer 2012 season!

If you are on holiday on the Costa del Sol– or indeed if you live here permanently – it’s always nice to know what’s happening on the concert scene over the summer. I know many of our guests at Sunset Beach Club are more than happy with our great live music and entertainment shows in our Moonlight Theatre (shameless plug!) but there are many guests who also like to get out and see some of the Coast; a good concert is a great excuse for this :-)

Without further a do, here is our ultimate list of Costa del Sol concerts for this summer: Read More…

Many of our hotel guests are often on the lookout for new and exciting activities and attractions when they come and stay with us. One of the most popular attractions is the Selwo Aventura wildlife park.

Located in the hills near the coastal town of Estepona, Selwo Aventura is approximately one hour’s drive from Sunset Beach Club. Although it might seem a little far to some, it’s well worth the drive!

Parking is easy as there is a large area just in front of the main entrance to the park. Once you’ve collected your entrance tickets it’s time to experience the magic! The park is split into four main areas or routes for you to visit, so I’ll give you a brief summary of what you will find in each and give you a few tips as to things you’ll want to see :-) Read More…
