Carly and Gavin - 18th May 2024

Carly and Gavin 18th May 2024

Hi Claire,

I just wanted to send a quick email to thank sunset beach club for the most amazing wedding.

We are so happy with everything from start to finish. The room for getting dressed in was great, promenade was beautiful, salitos was lovely, the food was fantastic on the day of the wedding also.  

But what I will say is Gavin was amazing.  I am a fussy, head strong person and a small bit of a control freak.  He met us two days before and just calmed me, no matter what I requested it was never any problem.  From the morning of the wedding until the evening he made everything run smoothly (131 of us was a big crowd to handle and he made it look effortless).   

Thanks again to sunset beach, today is our last day and we don’t want to leave.

We will deffo return and also recommend to many of people.

Aoife & Seán Fitzpatrick

We just wanted to thank you and all the crew at Sunset Beach Club for an amazing stay and an even more spectacular wedding day. Everyone was so welcoming, attentive and friendly. We couldn't have imagined a more magical day.

The attention to detail was fantastic. The set up of the ceremony and terrace bar, the staff and the food were all more than we could have wished for. We throughly enjoyed our wedding day and will have memories of that day to always cherish.

All of our family were also commending everyone and everything about the day. We're only sad that's it's all over now and we're back to work!

We hope to be back next year to celebrate our 1 year anniversary but until then thank you so much again from the bottom of our hearts”

Seana Ward & Sean Ryan - 11th October 2023

Can I just start by thanking everyone at the  Sunset Beach Club for an amazing stay and what can only be described as the best wedding day imagnible. Everyone was so helpful on the lead up to the day and after they truly made the day. The reception was also outstanding helping accommodating our guests as it was a big crowd of over 120 people. Also ourselves with steamers for the prep suit etc. 

Kate our planner was just the best I had a family emergency before coming and she just kept the whole day flowing and helped me so much with the planning and any qustions. Her suppliers also blew it out of the water with hair make up music the list could go on. 

The set up of the ceremony was just amazing exactly the vibe we hoped for! It was a lovley relaxed feel with the best views. Our guest still have not stopped talking about how amazing our day was. And all want to return to your gorgeous hotel. 

We are coming back next year to celebrate our 1 year anniversary and we can not wait to return. 

Thank you just seems so small for what you done for us ❤️

Jasmine & Jordan

"Hi Claire,

Hope you are well. Just wanted to pop you an email to say thank you to yourself and the team at sunset beach and especially to our wedding planner Kate. Everything was absolutely amazing from start to finish and everything we could have wished for. 

Both myself and Jordan had an amazing time, and couldn’t have done it without the help of your team and Kate! Kate is absolutely amazing at what she does and makes everything run so smoothly, Kate made sure everybody was at ease at all times. From starting to plan the wedding to leaving the hotel after the wedding Kate was always on hand for anything. 

I would recommend Sunset Beach to anybody getting married. 

We will see you all soon x"

Lisa Cudden & Stephen Geraghty - 28th June 2023

We had the most amazing week at the sunset beach club while celebrating our wedding with family & friends. It was absolutely magical. The most beautiful setting for a wedding, both there & Mijas where we had our ceremony. Great memories we will cherish forever. Our guests couldn’t compliment it enough saying how picturesque & beautiful it was.

Our wedding planner Kate was amazing. She was such a great help especially since I was so particular with everything. She was very patient & always done her best to help with any queries we had. The hotel staff were very friendly & helpful. Choice of music was very important to us & we wanted a band with a great singer. We got that & more. We had the Q for music for the whole day including the church & they were absolutely outstanding. Amelinda has the most amazing voice & our guests were blown away by her. We also had Robbie on sax who was also amazing. They made our day unforgettable.

We had Paula for hair & Tracey for makeup. They done an amazing job. Shona at bunches for our beautiful flowers. Gary Tapp for video & more natural photos. Malcolm Hardy for our beautiful dance floor & fairy lights which set the scene. Charlie Lines for her backdrop for our cake.

So happy we choose this hotel & location for our wedding. Would definitely recommend it for a fairy tale wedding 

Antoinette & John Paul – 16th May 2023

Hi Claire,

We cannot thank the staff of sunset beach club and our wedding planner Kate and her daughter Charly for giving us not only the day of our dreams but a week of fun and relaxation with all of our guests. From our first visit and taster meal to the actual wedding day everything was perfect. 

We were married in mijas which is genuinely like a little village from a movie, our guests absolutely loved it. We had our pre dinner cocktails on the prom area at the hotel and then partied the night away in the function room. Food was amazing and everything was plentiful, as was the day after food at salitos beach bar.. Nothing we asked for was a problem. 

We have heard so many compliments from our guests on the hotel, service, food, and the whole day. I woukd reccommend  getting married at Sunset beach to everybody. 

We cannot wait to return for a holiday soon. 

Best regards 

Antoinette xx

"We had an amazing time in sunsetbeachclub for our wedding and our guests enjoyed every minute of there stay along with us.

I could not fault one thing and have recommended this hotel for a wedding or family holiday to many of our irish friends and family.

Our decision to go abroad to get married was definitely worth it"


Joy & James Green – 8th October 2022

Hi Claire,

I would like to thank you, Gavin and all at Sunset Beach Club for the most amazing wedding day on the 8th October 2022. It was everything we dreamed of and more. From start to finish the day was just perfect. From the morning getting ready with my bridesmaids our hair and makeup girls (Steffi in Salas Hair and Liza Mayne makeup) made our morning and the staff at Sunset Beach were very helpful. The bridal prep room was brilliant we had such a great morning there. Tony Wilcox our celebrant performed the most beautiful ceremony. The drinks and canapés reception on the promenade was amazing and the evening reception meal and night couldn’t have gone better. The staff in Sunset Beach were brilliant and went out of their way for us. 

Special mention to Gavin our wedding planner who was absolutely fantastic he was running around all day making sure everything ran smoothly and stayed till the late evening even managing our Photo Booth.

The Sala Malaga room was decorated beautifully and the flowers by Shona in Bunches set the scene there and at the ceremony perfectly. 

Also thanks to Laura Elen for our ceremony music, Dawn and Michal for photos and video, Ian our DJ and to Demian our sax player who had everyone out on the dance floor all night and was the highlight of our evening! 

We stayed in Sunset Beach also for a week as did the majority of our 84 guests and what a week we had we can’t wait to return for our first anniversary!

Thanks so much again for everything ❤️

Katrina & Michael Power - 07th October 2022


Hi Claire,

Our wedding was 7th October 2022. Where do we start!  From start to finish every step along the way was more yhan we could have ever hoped for. Due to Covid19 we had to change our wedding date three times. Our wedding planner Kate Lines was absolutely brilliant,  nothing was ever to much and everything went to plan. The hotel itself is just fantastic and all the staff very welcoming and friendly. The ladies we had for hair an make up made us feel very relaxed we had laughs and chats all day. The setting for the service just beautifully located. Ian out celebrant very professional and nice person. Our guest commented on what a lovely service he did. The mojitos and nibbles after the service were perfect as was the Spanish guitar player. The photographer took some fantastic pictures to capture our memories. As for the reception, the room was layed out beautifully the meal was delicious we have guest still commenting on how much they enjoyed the food at our wedding. The traditional Spanish wedding cake and cutting it with a sword just blew people's minds. The D.J. very nice man and had great patience with the kids requesting lots of songs. The photo mirror great touch our guest really enjoyed that also. A massive thank you to absolutely everybody who had a part to play in making our wedding so special and unforgettable.
Thank you, Mr. and Mrs. Power.

Nicola McFALL & Derek BARR - 17th September 2022

We got married in September 2022. I can honestly say from start to finish my experience was fantastic , from my initial enquiry with claire to ending up with my wedding planner Kate who was my 2nd planner and the best thing that happened to us. My run up to the wedding no matter what it was Kate had me covered,  equally to claire who dealt  with  my guests stay enquires. We had our taster meal during our stay and it was fabulous we were treated amazing .  I took so unwell on my wedding day as did my daughter and Kate had my back literally done everything for me looked after me so well. Her team of make up hair girls were genuinely fabulous . Tony ran ceremony which was nothing short than perfect. On to the wedding my guests are still talking about how they were so spoiled the canapés & drinks kept coming , the wedding room was perfect and stunning , once again food was unreal and drinks never stopped . My day went like clock work. I wish I could do it all again and I would pick Sunset Beach Club every single time . Staff are fantastic and everyone needs a Kate on their wedding day.

Lots of love the Barrs


Caitriona & Jason – 14th September 2022

Caitriona & Jason

Hi Claire, 

I hope this email finds you well. On behalf of myself and my new husband Jason we want to thank you, the management and staff of the hotel for an absolutely fantastic wedding day. From the moment we checked in until we left we had an amazing time. Marie Fagan, our coordinator, was just amazing and we want to thank you for putting her in contact with us. She did an amazing job.

We had 53 guests with us and everyone was so impressed by the service, the cleanliness and the friendliness of the staff.  We had our bbq on the 15th the day after our wedding and the service and food was fantastic. 

I did meet you briefly when I came for our taster meal and met with Marie. I had the absolute pleasure to meet Allan who was to be our minister and sadly taken from us but he was with us in our hearts on that day.

We are hoping to come out on our first anniversary next year. Until then a massive thank you and keep up the fantastic work. The hotel is a credit to you all. 

Love and best wishes from myself and Jason.


Sharon & Darragh – 13th September 2022

“Hi Claire, I would like to thank you and Kate and all of Sunset Beach for the most amazing day, our wedding was everything we wanted and so much more. From the moment we met you and Kate we knew everything would be perfect, everything was so easy i did not have to worry about one thing, you both made it so easy. Every single one of our guests had the most amazing time, as did we❤️ we will be back every year on our anniversary to relive some of those memories.


Kate was so great on the day, my mother has walking difficulties, what I wanted most on the day was for her to walk me down the aisle, Kate made it possible and looked after her for the whole day, thank you Kate❤️I would like to thank you all at Sunset beach for giving Darragh and I the most magical day. Sunset Beach Club will always be a special place for us both.


 Sophie & Anthony – 24th July 2022

Hi Claire, 

We just wanted to email to send you all at Sunset Beach some special thank you messages.

Choosing Sunset Beach Club Hotel to be our wedding venue right from the start in the year 2020 was certainly the best decision myself & Anthony made when we were looking at venues to get married. From the first point of contact with yourself Claire, you provided clear, precise information and you demonstrated just how organised and reliable you were in your role in answering the queries we had. Your prompt responses and answers to questions made us at ease and provided us with the reassurance that we had chosen the best venue to get married at.

Our wedding day was perfect from the beginning to the end. Suppliers who made the day magical and not forgetting an absolutely stunning venue, right next to the beach front with the most gorgeous decor.  From Salitos bar for Canapés to the Sala Malaga on the 7th Floor of the hotel for our Evening Wedding Reception, everything was a dream come true. It was beautiful. We would like to thank yourself and all the staff at Sunset Beach for the hard work, effort and commitment in making our day the best day of our lives. We will be forever grateful and it's a day we will never forget.  We feel very lucky to have been able to celebrate the biggest day of our lives at Sunset Beach July 2022.  

All our guests complimented how amazing they thought our wedding was too. 

A special mention to Marie our wedding planner for the work she did in supporting me to prepare our wedding and for the organisation she put in on the day to ensure things run smoothly. Not forgetting our photographer Dougie at Silverscreen, The Rivermen Acoustic Duo, Shona at Bunches Florist, Kurt as our minister, Kelly Jane makeup, Steffi at Salas Hair, The Balloon Man Spain and Dj Raymond. They truly were the best. I can highly recommend every one of those suppliers we chose for our wedding day. Their true professionalism, hard work, reliability and commitment really did show. 

We made the most of Sunset Beach. Our wedding and holiday were a 16night stay. This meant we had our wedding and honeymoon with Sunset Beach and it was luxury. We were given the honeymoon suite on the night of our wedding and it was absolutely lovely. The staff in the hotel were so kind, generous and a fabulous wedding breakfast was delivered to our door as an extra special little treat the morning after. Those extra little details definitely are appreciated.  Thank you to all the staff in the hotel who made our holiday and honeymoon a great stay, for being generous, kind and thoughtful. Approachable and are there if you need them for anything. 

Overall, Claire, from our hearts, thank you. Thank you for everything, for absolutely EVERYTHING.

I've also attached a photograph we received from our photographer Dougie to go with our review.

We can't wait to return to Sunset Beach Club hopefully next year for our 1st year anniversary.  We look forward to seeing you all again soon.

Take Care. 

Mr & Mrs Forbes.

Anthony & Sophie. 

Philip & Dee - 14th July 2022



Hi Claire,  just want to say a big thank you to you and all the staff at Sunset Beach Club we are so glad we picked here for our wedding. Marie Fagan was our wedding planner and she went above and beyond for us, always on hand to answer all my texts and questions I might have. Paula & Tracy did the hair and make-up which was brilliant as they did so more than their job they helped us so much that day and it really meant a lot. I would also like to give a big thank-you to our Minister Kurt who was very good. I would highly recommend here for couples thinking of getting married abroad.


Once again thank you all so much xx
