Our on-site entertainment team have been working hard for weeks preparing their new show; A tribute to Grease. Last week was the premiere and from what we’ve heard the Rocio and her team have done a great job; the show was packed! If you missed the show last week, don’t panic; the show will be on every Friday evening over the summer at our Moonlight Bar here at Sunset Beach Club. Join Danny, Sandy and the rest of the T-Birds and Pink Ladies for an evening of great music and dancing! The show starts at 10:30 pm and entrance is free. Just make sure you get there early so you get a good seat!
One hundred and sixteen minutes; that’s what it took the Spanish team break the solid Dutch defence last night! It wasn’t the most beautiful of football matches but it was definitely intense. The boys in red made us suffer – a little too long for my liking – but Iniesta’s goal 4 minutes away from the dreaded penalty shootout means that Spain win the world cup for the first time in history and complete a well deserved double after winning the European Championship 2 years ago.
The whole of Spain was rocking last night after the final whistle. All you could hear were the screams of jubilant fans, fireworks, car horns and even some attempts and blowing the, now world famous, vuvuzela’s! As we have been doing throughout the whole competition, we showed the game on the 3 metre screen at the Moonlight Bar; hundreds of guests gathered to watch the game and you can image what the atmosphere was like!

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!
Today is make or break for World Cup groups G and H. The final matches of the first round take place today and will decide the qualifying teams that will make it through to the knock out stages next week. The four o’clock kick off promises to be an exciting game as Portugal take on Brazil, followed by the 8.30 game between Chile and España which is sure to have the local bars and streets alive with tension and torment!
As the knock out stages of the World Cup are fast approaching, the pressure is mounting on the deciding matches. Today’s highlighted matches include Germany v Ghana at 8.30pm and the 4 o’clock kick off which will see England fight for survival in the tournement against Slovenia, both of which will be shown live in our Moonlight bar. This is the ideal place to watch the nailbiting England match, with face painting and competitions for the kids, fully air conditioned comfort, gigantic 3 metre screen and a fully stocked bar ready to cope with celebration or commiseration! But of course today is not just about the football, as tonight will welcome the celebrations of San Juan! As the sun sets and the party starts, regardless of the footballing results spirits will be high and the festival will last long into the night…
