Fair of Malaga 2019

12elo

It is mid-August and this time of year is when the city of Malaga celebrates its fair.

This year the Fair of Malaga will start on Thursday the 15th of August, which is also a national bank holiday, and it will be on until Saturday the 24th.

Although the dates can vary a bit the fair is always on in mid-August as it commemorates the reconquest of Malaga by the Catholic Monarchs on the 19th of August 1487.

The Fair of Malaga is one of the most awaited events of the year not only by locals but also by visitors.

This amazing festival still has a traditional side even if it is quite cosmopolitan and international due to the big number of visitors from all over the world who visit the city willing to enjoy it.

If at the moment you are on holiday at Hotel Angela, your hotel in Fuengirola, we certainly recommend you to visit this fantastic fair which is held from the morning to the early evening in the historical centre of Malaga, around the beautiful and well known Calle Larios.

There you will have the opportunity to see stunning flamenco dresses, to watch people dancing the traditional sevillanas and to enjoy some fantastic music performances. Besides, you can also try some delicious tapas and amazing local wines in a cheerful and happy environment.

As you know getting to Malaga from our hotel is cheap and easy thanks to the train service that connects Fuengirola with Malaga cityEnjoy the fair!

The Fair of Los Boliches 2019 and the Day of Virgen del Carmen

15heinä

If you have had the fortune of having stayed with us before this time of year you might already know that these last few and upcoming days are very important in Los Boliches.

From Friday the 12th to Tuesday the 16th of July the Fair of Los Boliches is on, so if right now you are on holiday at Hotel Angela, your hotel in Fuengirola, we recommend you visit the fairground as the fair is held there.

Tomorrow, Tuesday the 16th of July is in fact the most important day of this event as it is the day of Virgen del Carmen, the patron saint of Los Boliches.

Although this is celebrated by all locals in Los Boliches it is lived in a different and a more intense way.

Tomorrow in fact at 12:00 P.M. there will be a mass in honour of the Virgin in the Church of Los Boliches. 

Being a man of the sea is a very hard and risky job, so due to the protection they believe the virgin gives them every 16th of July many of them take her out in procession as a way to express their gratitude. 

This procession starts at 8:45 P.M. is considered by many as the most unique and special of the year as it ends with the Virgin in the sea surrounded by small boats and fireworks.

If tomorrow evening you are staying at Hotel Angela we definitely recommend you not to miss this celebration from our pool area.

Try not to miss one of the most awaited events of the year in Fuengirola!

San Juan’s Night 2019

17kesä

This week is a very special one at Hotel Angela as this Sunday evening in Fuengirola we celebrate San Juan’s Night.

In the past, here on the blog of Hotel Angela, we have told you about San Juan and have explained that the reason why it is such an important date all over Costa del Sol is because we celebrate the oficial start of summer.

For this reason, as in previous years, Hotel Angela has prepared a very special event, together with Hotel Yaramar and Hotel Florida Spa, so we all can celebrate and share together such a unique night.

The night of the 23rd of June, around 10:30 P.M. in Chiringuito Rivera (the Beach Club that belongs to our sister hotel, Hotel Yaramar) there will be a very special party for all guests from Hotel Yaramar, Hotel Florida Spa, and of course, Hotel Angela.

There we will do our traditional “júas” competition between the hotels; there will be live music from popular duo “Esperanto”; as well as free glass of sangría for our guests, and a special offer just for that night of one skewer or sardines and one drink for only 5€.

By the way, regarding the “júas”, if you are currently at Hotel Angela and you really enjoy doing crafts we would like to inform you that on Friday the 21st , from 11:30 A.M, our Public Relations Dulce, will be by the pool and she will need your help to create the “júas” that will represent Hotel Angela in this Friday’s competition between hotels.

The prize of this contest, as every year, is an extra hour of Happy Hour for the winning hotel, on the 24th of June.

Happy San Juan’s Night, and may the best “júas” win! See you on Sunday in the Rivera Beach Club!
