Get to know : Begoña Gámez

20elo

This month the star of our blog section dedicated to our staff is Begoña Gámez.

Begoña is one of the hard working girls from the Snack Bar, so we are sure that most of you already know her.

She has been working with us nearly seven years and she says that what she likes the most about working at the hotel is “the working environment. It is like a big family because many of our guests come and visit us 2 or 3 times a year”.

Begoña has a special bond with many of them, that is why she remembers fondly when she got married and some of our guests gave her wedding presents because they were also excited about her big day.

Her most remarkable feature is her smile which is much appreciated by our guests who tend to thank her for her friendliness and kindness.

When we ask her about her hobbies she does not hesitate a minute: “I love going to flamenco lessons” ¡¡Olé!!

Her favourite place in Fuengirola is the beach. She especially enjoys going to the one near the Castle of Sohail as that way she can enjoy the beautiful views while she is sunbathing on her sunbed.

She also told us that her favourite restaurant in Fuengirola is “Restaurante La Farola” located in C/ Cuesta (Plaza Yate) where you can enjoy either national or international cuisine.

Begoña also gave us a special message for you all:  “I would like to thank our guests for keeping on choosing Hotel Ángela as their holiday hotel”.  Isn’t she lovely?

We are sure that most of you will see her again very soon. Now that you know that she can dance flamenco don’t miss out and ask her to show you some moves!  Though if you would like to say something to her or share your comments with us before your next visit remember that you can do it on our facebook page.

Let’s get tanned

10elo

The main aim of all of us as soon as the good weather starts is to get a lovely tan without damaging our skin. It is because of this that this week we would like to share with you some tips to help you get beautifully tanned this summer during your visit to Costa del Sol.

 Tips to get a good tan:

  • Drink a glass of orange and carrot juice daily.  Carrots and oranges help you to get a tan faster and their vitamins protect your skin.
  • Light-skinned people have to be much more careful and tanning can take longer, but if a few days before hitting the beach or the pool you apply a self tanning lotion, your skin will get tanned more easily.
  • If you want an even tan it is better to have a walk than to lay down under the sun. That way we will avoid getting certain parts of our body very tanned while others remain white.

Here in Hotel Ángela we love to get tanned, but we are always very careful as damaging our skin while sunbathing is dangerous. In upcoming posts we will continue talking about this topic so do not miss it, visit our blog and learn how to get tanned without risks.

Now you have no excuse, go and show your tan to the world!

Get to know: Antonia Aguilera

02huhti

Some of our most frequent guests probably know Antonia Aguilera. This post will allow you to get to know a little bit more about her. She was born in Villanueva de Tapia a town in Málaga and has been working with us for 25 years by now. Actually last Christmas she received a gold watch, the company’s present for those 25 years of excellent service. She has worked in the restaurant and the snack bar before becoming part of the administrative office at our hotel. She is one of our colleagues that works behind the scenes and it is very important for us that you meet all of them because we are all a big family that could not do without anyone.

Antonia, like most of our colleagues, tells us that what she likes the most about working at Hotel Angela is “to meet a lot of people”, and she gives us an example of a fun anecdote that happened to her with a spanish bullfighter:

“I gave the bill to Jose María Manzanares and he dedicated it to me thinking I was asking him for an autograph!”

She also recalls a time when “a guest gave me a rose and said: Mrs., you are a rose”. From her habit of “wanting to have everything under control, and as far as I can reach” she has a message for all our guests, which reflects very well what the whole team thinks:

“I would like all our guests to tell us more about their preferences, this way we could adapt even more to your needs; and also would like you to know that we all work very hard so that your holidays are the best possible ever.”

 

Have you seen the pictures? Isn’t it great to see how she has developed inside our company? We are very proud of having people like her in our team, this is how over the years we have become a great family. Next month you will get to meet another one of us… Meanwhile, if you want to say something to Antonia (we call her Toñi, which is s short version of her name in Spanish), make sure to do so in our Facebook page.
