Last year’s show attracted over 23.000 people and 250 exhibitors and this year organisers are expecting and even better turn out with all 4 halls occupied by exhibitors.
As well as the main Over 50’s Show, visitors will also be able to enjoy the genealogy event, Back to Our Past and Coin and Stamp fair. Read More→
Last Friday was our colleague John Smistkam’s last day of work at Sunset Beach Club Why? Because he has reached that wonderful age when it’s time to take a step back and enjoy life…Retirement!
John has been a key part of the team here at Sunset Beach Club for more than 15 years. Working in our Travel Club and more recently on our Golf & Leisure Desk helping guests with all their local information needs – his outgoing personality and friendliness will be sorely missed by guests and colleagues alike!

A couple of weeks ago we ran a competition on our Facebook page which proved very popular. Fans were asked to come up with a Tag Line for Sunset Beach Club and I’m pleased to say that we got some very good entries; so good, in fact, that we’ve decided to feature them all here is this blog post as a tribute to all those who took the time to enter.
The competition required fans to vote for their favourite entries and the top 3 would go into a final selection with the winner being chosen by our General Manager. Read More→
If you’ve been to Sunset Beach Club in the high season summer months you’ll know we put on some great shows in our Moonlight Theatre.
At least two of the weekly shows are performed by our talented animation team! Not only do they perform in the shows but they are also responsible for all the choreography, costumes, decoration… absolutely everything!
As you can probably imagine,putting each of these shows together requires an enormous amount of work and effort. The animation team spend hours and hours rehearsing and perfecting their shows to ensure that our guests get to see top class performance – judging by the incredible feedback we get, the team have done a great job
Here´s a short video clip we filmed as the animation team prepared for this summers hit tribute musical: Dirty Dancing.
ScubaTours, the dive centre located within the Sunset Beach Club facilities has recently been awarded the 5 star Dive Resort rating from PADI. This fantastic onsite facility was already a registered PADI dive centre but the new distinction serves as recognition of the courses which have been taught over recent years.
Our dive centre has certified many divers in the popular Open Water Dive and Advanced Diver qualifications; however, it has also taught many specialty courses such as photography, wreck diving (in nearby Gibraltar), search and recovery, underwater navigation and many more. This is fantastic news for Sunset Beach Club and Scuba Tours as guests who stay with us and want to take a scuba diving course can feel confident that they are receiving instruction from a registered and recommended official PADI dive centre (we’re actually listed on the PADI website :-)).
But the good news does not stop there. On the 1st November 2012 Scuba Tours will receive the rating of PADI 5 star IDC Resort. This is in recognition of the facilities they can offer to run an IDC (Instructor Development Course). This is fantastic as this will be the only IDC centre in the area that offers full instructor training facilities on site: Accommodation, conference rooms, swimming pool, storage and an open water dive site just metres away.

A few months ago we wrote a blog post about how we’re working hard to reduce energy and water consumption at Sunset Beach Club; well today we’re going to let you know about a few of the recycling initiatives we are undertaking in our quest to become an environmentally friendly hotel.
Here are 6 of the recycling initiatives we are busy implementing at the moment:
1) Battery Disposal: We go through a lot of batteries at Sunset Beach Club… just think about all those remote controls for the TV’s and air-conditioning units in each and every room! Our battery recycling programme aims to reduce the number of batteries which are disposed of as municipal solid waste thereby reducing the risks of solid contamination and water pollution. We’ve even got a box at reception where guests can deposit any old batteries they wish to get rid of Read More→
We know that many of our guests are ‘football mad’ and won’t want to miss any of the big games – especially the ones involving their national squad – so we’ll be showing comprehensive coverage of most games.
Most of the Euro 2012 games will be shown on the screens in the Panorama Bar; however, the big games involving Spain, Ireland and England (Most of our guests hail from these countries) will be shown on the fantastic 6 square metre screen in our Moonlight Theatre!
Here’s a list of the games we’ll be showing in the Moonlight: Read More→
The management at Sunset Beach Club has set itself the task of turning our hotel into a property which respects the environment and its surroundings; a specific and detailed environmental policy will allow us to become a ‘green’ hotel. To help us with this challenging task, we have partnered with local company, Biogrove.
With offices in Arroyo dela Miel, Biogrove specialises in preventative and healing treatments for the elimination of plagues and diseases in trees and plants. They also offer guidance in issues relating to the management of soil fertility, help in choosing what species to plant and with everything relating to the creation and maintenance of all green areas within the hotel.
These are some of the initiatives we are undertaking at the moment, initiatives that will allow us to reach our goal of becoming a ‘green’ hotel: Read More→
Last night the Moonlight Theatre rocked to the sound of local Beatles tribute band, the Silver Beats. This is the first time this fantastic band form Málaga have played at Sunset Beach Club; however, judging by the audience response to their Beatles rendition, it won’t be the last!
Formed 17 years ago, The Silver Beats play songs from the ‘Fab Four’s’ early years influenced by 50’s rock and roll tunes from the United States and when they started composing their first – now classic – songs.
As you can see from the photos and the videos, the Silver Beats put on a great show. Not only do they look the part – even their instruments are all original replicas – but their unique mix of voice, guitar riffs and great rhythm made for a great evening of entertainment. Read More→
