Many of you will know that our original plan was to close the hotel from the 1st December 2020 to 7th January 2021 to carry out some refurbishment work in the reception area of the hotel.
Due to the unforeseen circumstances brought about by the COVID-19 virus, we’ve decided to
postpone the planned work and keep the hotel open over the winter, including
the all-important Christmas and New Year period.
Those of you who have been lucky enough to celebrate New Year’s Eve here in Spain will be familiar with the tradition of eating 12 ‘lucky’grapes as the clock strikes midnight.

Trips from Benalmadena to Fuengirola included in the “Relax Tour” package
Benalmadena has always been known as a sun and sea destination, attracting visitors from all over Europe in the warmer high season months.
