St Patrick’s Day Celebrations in Benalmadena: Here’s the Plan….

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 afterwards! 

It’s no secret that Sunset Beach Club is an Irish-owned hotel, therefore, the 17th March is an important day in our calendar. Every year we prepare our “Sunset Style” celebrations. This year they’ll include consuming copious amounts of Guinness at the Panorama Bar and a fantastic “Irish Themed” buffet dinner for all our guests in our newly refurbished Oasis Restaurant! 

This year’s celebrations in Arroyo de la Miel have now been confirmed. Weather permitting, we’ll all be able to enjoy a fun day out on the 17th March!


5 Days of Soul, Motown & Sun in Benalmádena: Costa del Soul (February Edition)

Northern Soul promoters, GoldSoul, are heading back to Sunset Beach Club this February with another edition of their winter soul break. Whilst this winter edition of their Soul has recently been a 9-day event, this year we are back to a fun-packed 5-day soul music experience! 

As many of you know, for the last 16+ years we’ve welcomed GoldSoul for their week-long Costa del Soul events. These usually take place at the end of October, and are, undeniably the top soul music events on the Costa del Sol.

Building on the success of their autumn Costa del Soul holidays, GoldSoul recently (before Covid messed things up) added this new Soul and Motown Break to their calendar!

From the 2nd to 7th February (2024) Soul and Motown music fans can enjoy a jam-packed long weekend break in the sun with music every night in the Sunset Beach Club Moonlight Bar and daily lunchtime sessions on the Oasis Restaurant Terrace.

Some of the UK’s top northern soul DJ’s will be flying in especially for this Soul music weekend including Kev Roberts, Snowy, Ozz, Hitsville Chalky, Ossie Stewart, Tim Rabjohn, Sam Evans, Mike Atherton, Andy Baskett as well as other DJ’s and guests yet to be announced.

If you’re a Soul and Motown music fan and are interested in more information about this weekend break, please contact www.goldsoul.co.uk . You’ll be able to book a full package including accommodation and full entertainment pass for all the shows throughout the 5 days.

This is a privately organised event; however, hotel guests and non-residents are welcome to join in the fun. Entrance fee will be €10 per person and night and is payable at the door each night.

Christmas & New Year’s Eve Programme at Sunset Beach Club

Christmas and New Year Programme at Sunset Beach ClubHave you made any plans for Christmas and New Year? 

It’s a fun and exciting time to visit Sunset Beach Club, and whilst it’s a little different than spending it in front of the fire with rain or snow outside, there’s something special about enjoying a glass of Bucks Fizz whilst sitting out in the Winter sunshine 🙂

As is the tradition here at Sunset Beach Club, we’ve put together another fantastic Festive Programme for all guests who choose to spend Christmas and New Year with us (see below).  (more…)

This year’s ‘Costa del Soul’ event promises to be the best yet. After the success of the extended 9-day event (It’s usually seven nights) this year Goldsoul will repeat this winning formula and Costa del Soul will run from Friday 6th October to Saturday 14th October featuring some of the top DJ’s from the UK playing the most fantastic Soul Music Tunes throughout the day.

Soul music lovers can enjoy their daily dose of Classic Soul tunes by the hotel’s Tikki Poolside Bar whilst enjoying a cool jug of Sangria and working on their tans!

After a hard day by the pool, the fun continues in the Panorama Bar with some laid-back soul from 6 to 9 pm. This includes the ever-popular happy hour and the chance to catch up and watch the latest live Premiership or Champions League football matches.
