On the 22nd, 23rd and 24th March Benalmadena will host the ‘Festival Hispano Argentino’ (Hispanic & Argentinian Festival). This unique fusion of Argentinian and Spanish culture promises a weekend of fun for all the family.
St Patrick’s Day is a popular celebration in Benalmadena. Every year over 1000 people (Irish locals, visitors and pretty much anyone looking to have a good craic) join in the parade in the centre of town and the amazing party which takes place next to Paloma Park afterwards!
It’s no secret that Sunset Beach Club is an Irish-owned hotel, therefore, the 17th March is an important day on our calendar. Every year we prepare our “Sunset Style” celebrations which include consuming copious amounts of Guinness at the Panorama Bar and a fantastic “Irish Themed” set menu for all our guests in the Oasis Restaurant!
This year we’ll also be hosting the International Celtic Festival on Saturday 16th March in our Moonlight Bar. The show starts at 8pm and you’ll get to enjoy Ceili Dance with Irish dancers and fantastic music with singers and musicians from Ireland! Tickets for this event are available from the Sunset Beach Club Leisure Desk on the 6th floor and are just €10 for a fun evening of traditional Irish music and dance! Continue Reading →
If you enjoy a warm and hearty casserole during these cooler winter days (well, cooler by Costa del Sol standards) then we highly recommend you take a quick trip down to Fuengirola for their annual ‘Cazuela de la Abuela’ (Grandma’s Casserole) event which starts this weekend.
From the 8th March to the 24th March, locals and visitors to Fuengirola will be able to sample tasty traditional Mediterranean casserole dishes – including yummy ‘lentejas’ and ‘callos’- just like the local’s Grandmas used to make (or still do!). Continue Reading →

We’re just a few days away from the start of Carnival Season and most towns and cities on the Costa del Sol are gearing up for a week of fun and entertainment.
Although the Carnival is celebrated all over Andalucia – The Cadiz Carnival is probably the most famous – for the purpose of this article, we’re going to focus on the Málaga Carnival; only 25 minutes from our hotel and easily accessible, it’s a ‘must visit’ if you are planning a trip to the Costa del Sol in February.
We’re lucky enough to enjoy mild winters and this luxury allows the city of Málaga to live one of its most colourful, multicultural and spontaneous festivities of the year: The Carnival.
With hundreds of activities and events taking place during the week-long (sometimes a little longer) festivities, you’re guaranteed to have a ball! Continue Reading →

Be warned: tickets for all the other shows on the Coast are practically sold out, so early booking is essential so that you don’t miss out on this evening of fun dining! Continue Reading →
