Well it’s been such a busy week here at the hotel we’ve barely had chance to blog! July has arrived and with it so has the scorching Spanish Summer sunshine. 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!
The hotel is buzzing this week with the start of the World Cup and three weddings, there’s a great atmosphere around the place! Happy hour is as popular as ever in our Panorama Bar and the Moonlight bar has become the central hub for most main matches, with the brand new 3 metre screen. Today is the wedding of Susan and Kevin, yesterday Emma and Joseph tied the knot and tomorrow is the turn of Emma Culleton and her fiance Patrick. Best wishes to all couples from all of us here at Sunset Beach Club!
Today is the wedding of Sinead and Alan. Their ceremony will take place at a nearby church in Benalmadena, the guests and newlyweds will then return to the hotel where they will be greeted with a cocktail reception followed by their chosen gala dinner menu. The wedding reception will take place in our stunning Sala Malaga, the room is already set with personalized menus and silver chair ribbons! Good luck and on behalf of all of us here at Sunset we wish them a fantastic day!
We’re into full swing with the wedding season here at the hotel! Danielle Minogue and Fiance Cillian are today’s happy couple who will be getting married later on this afternoon and then enjoying their gala dinner reception in our Sala Malaga. Today’s celebration is one of the largest so far this year, with over 80 guests, the banquet room is ready and waiting with gold chair ribbons, personalized menus and neutral table flowers, here in the picture you can see the blessing set up on our seafront promenade. On behalf of everyone here at the hotel we wish them a lovely day.
Today is the Wedding of Jo-Anne and Adam. The ceremony will take place in a local church later this afternoon, the guests and happy couple will then return to the hotel for a poolside cocktail reception at the Tikki Lounge, followed by a gala dinner in our Sala Malaga. Decoration of the banquet room is nearly finished the room is ready for this evening’s celebration. Now included in our wedding packages, the couple have personalized menu cards and have chosen fuschia chair ribbons and table flowers.
May is always a very busy month here at the hotel as the weather is perfect not just for family holidays but also for first comunions and weddings, lots of warm days with plenty of sunshine, but not too hot to bare in a suit and tie! We had two first comunions celebrated here last Saturday, one small group enjoyed a gala lunch in our seventh floor banquet room, whilst Clara’s comunion was held in the Moonlight Bar, with over 100 guests attending! Here we have a video taken of the room before the guests arrived, beautifully decorated with colourful balloons and chair ribbons as well as personalised table plans and menu cards:
Unsuspecting guests may have mistaken Wednesday’s wedding for a children’s birthday party! Lisa and Jez didn’t want a formal bash but instead wanted their day to be as relaxed and truly enjoyable as possible, not just for themselves but for all of their guests, especially the younger ones! After getting married in Gibraltar the couple that live locally here on the Costa del Sol travelled back to the Hotel where they greeted guests with a cava and canapé reception followed by gala dinner and then after party. The bride pulled out all the stops when it came to decorating the banquet room, brightly coloured balloons, assorted chair ribbons and incredible amounts of sweets and chocolate on every available surface, not to mention the cake! Words can’t describe, so hopefully this picture does the trick, a fantastically fun day was enjoyed by all!

Today is the official start to the Sunset Beach Club wedding season! Our first wedding of the year is that of Liisa and Taisto, which as you may have guessed from their names are a Finnish couple. They are holding the ceremony locally and then celebrating with family and close friends at a dinner reception in our Sala Malaga which has been beautifully decorated with red ribbons and rose petals!
