Archive for At Sunset
Make a note of the date in your diary: Saturday the 12th March at 8pm at Sunset Beach Club’s Moonlight Rooms. This is the date chosen for our “Gala Carnaval”, an amazing evening of gourmet food, fine wines and live music; the best part is that all proceeds from the gala will be donated to the Cudeca Cancer Care Hospice in Benalmadena.
Every year, Sunset Beach Club makes a donation to this very important charity; however, this year, we’ve decided to try something a little different in an attempt to raise more funds for Cudeca. The “Gala Carnaval” will give us the perfect opportunity to do just that; tickets to the event will go on sale in the next few days and all proceeds will go to Cudeca.
We’ve got a real treat planned for all those who show their support for Cudeca and buy tickets to the event. Our Head Chef, Paul Tugwell, and his team have prepared an incredible 6 course gourmet meal (See Menu below) which will be accompanied by a fine selection of wines , specially selected by wine expert Charlotte Rodriguez, from Cervinco Wines.
Gala guests will also be treated to an enviable line up of music and entertainment with the Marbella Big band and the King of Swing, Ricky Lavazza, both performing live on stage; not to be missed!
One of the highlights of the evening will be the Art Auction: A number of well known artists on the Coast have been kind enough to donate samples of their work to be auctioned on the evening. This will be a fantastic opportunity to raise extra funds for the Cudeca hospice.
Tickets to the “Gala Carnaval” are priced at €50 per person and can be purchased at Sunset Beach Club’s Leisure Desk or by calling 952 579 400.
Places are limited so make sure you book soon to avoid disappointment!
Update: Please note that the Christmas show programmed for Sunday the 19th December has been cancelled. The show on Monday 20th goes ahead as planned.
Christmas is just around the corner and to get us all into the festive spirit, there will be a fantastic christmas Show taking place in our Moonlight Bar the weekend before christmas.
Produced and performed by the team at Entertain in Spain, (they were also responsible for the hugely successful Back to the 40′s show a couple of months ago) the show is the perfect excuse to enjoy a fun evening out with all the family!
You’ll be treated to all your favourite christmas carols, songs and music, all performed by some of the most talented singers and performers on the Coast. The beauty of these shows is that you also have a large screen video show throughout the performance which complements the live singing; it truly is a unique experience and a must see!
During the show’s interval, you be able to sample some warm mince pies and a glass of mulled wine; if you are lucky, you might also win one of the fantastic prizes in the Christmas Charity Raffle!
There will be two showings of the Costa del Sol Christmas Show: The first will be on Sunday the 19th December (Update: the Sunday show has been cancelled) and the second on Monday the 20th December. The shows start at 8pm; tickets are €20 for adults and €12 for children under 12 and Senior Citizens. Please call 655 087 198 or visit www.entertaininspain.com to purchase tickets or for more information about the show.
Don’t forget…..write it down on your calendar; 19th and 20th December at the Moonlight Theatre at Sunset Beach Club Hotel in Benalmadena.
I can’t believe we’re almost at the end of October; we’ll be singing Christmas carols in no time! As you can imagine, Christmas and New Year are busy times for us here at the hotel and an incredible amount of work goes in to preparing for the Christmas festivities.
One of the most important items on the “To Do” list is the preparation of our yearly Festive Programme. Well, I’m pleased to say that the new programme is available for you to view or download on our website. - Sunset Beach Club Festive Programme
If you aren’t sure about where to spend this Christmas, you may want to take a look at the menus for the Christmas Day Lunch and the New Year’s Eve Gala Dinner; they look fantastic! Have we convinced you yet? If you need a little more convincing, just have a look at our special rates for this winter….. see, I told you!
A great Festive Programme and Christmas in the Sun, what more could you ask for?

We had a full house for the “Back to the 40′s” Show at the Moonlight on Monday evening! Hundreds of people enjoyed a great evening of singing and dancing and judging by the applause, the night was a great success.

Active Sound Productions, who specialise in the organisation of musical events on the Costa del Sol, will present a night of the very best Blues music at Sunset Beach Club’s Moonlight Cabaret Bar on Saturday the 2nd October.
With performances from Steve Payne(UK) and the Johan Wahlstrom Band(Sweden), the evening promises some of the best of the Blues.
A little about the musicians….
Steve Payne is a composer, singer and producer who has been described as “one of the UK’s finest guitarists”. Calm but passionate, with a distinct melodic voice and unique way of playing the guitar Steve draws energy from the crowd creating a vibrant atmosphere anywhere he performs.
The Johan Wahlstrom Band is made up by some of the members of famous Swedish group “Stockholm Stoner” and prestigious local musicians such as Jazz singer Elena Salguero and pianist Gabriel Zenni. Half of the group’s repertoire is written by Johan Wahlstrom himself and the others are versions of classic tracks.

But there’s more to Sunset than just great weather, this week we’ve had weddings taking place on Wednesday, Thursday and a seafront blessing planned for later on this afternoon so the resort is buzzing with blushing brides. Also of course with the World cup final looming, the atmosphere is tense as the staff and guests alike wait in suspense to see if Spain can go all the way and win the cup. We’ve had a great turn out for both semi final matches in the Moonlight bar, and will also be showing the final there this Sunday as well as the third place play-off match on Saturday night. Let’s hope Spain can give us a fantastic finale to the week!
