The Sunset Beach Club Committee met in Edinburgh this  past weekend for their annual Autumn Committee Meeting and the 26th Annual General Meeting.

Patricia Reid (see photo below) who has been a familiar face on the Committee for the last 7 years chose to retire and Danish born Inge Letvinka was unanimously voted in favour as her replacement. Michael Orlien (Committee Chairman) was re-elected for a further term of 3 years. Minutes of the meeting and the topics discussed under any other business will be circulated to all fully paid members in the forthcoming weeks before Xmas.

The committee were able to enjoy a little time off and got to do a little sightseeing… here are a few photos they took on their tour of the beautiful city of Edinburgh: Read More…

Goodbye John!

John with his plaque...

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.

Our Animation Team Rehearsing for the Dirty Dancing Show

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.

Dive Centre at Sunset Beach Club gets 5 star Dive Resort Rating from PADI

5 star PADI dive centre in BenalmadenaScubaTours, 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.

6 Recycling & Eco-Friendly Initiatives at Sunset Beach Club


Battery Box and Paper Recycling Machine

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…

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!
