Sangria

22Avr

When we think about holidays and Costa del Sol it is impossible not to think about the beach, the sun and a tasty glass of sangria.Sangría - Hotel Angela Fuengirola

Sangria is the Spanish drink par excellence. It is world-wide known and its main ingredients are red wine, fruit, sugar, spices and liquor.

The name “sangria” comes from the word “sangre” that in Spanish means “blood”. This reference to the word “blood” is due to the colour of the wine which is its main ingredient. We can really use any kind of red wine though we would get better results if we use a young fruity one.

Sangria has to be served cold and has to be presented in a transparent jug so that way the fruit can be seen. This popular drink can’t be considered a cocktail for a few reasons, for example it is a drink that it is normally drunk with meals, it is prepared in a jug, not in a cocktail shaker, and served in a common glass not in a cocktail one.

It seems that Spaniards started to drink sangria during the first decade of the 19th Century, but…did you know that apparently the English were the ones who made it fashionable in the mid 19th Century? Interesting fact, right?
Do you love sangria? Would you fancy learning how to prepare it? If so this Thursday at 11:30 at Hotel Angela’s Snack Bar, Alison, our public relations and entertainment manager, will show you how to prepare a delicious and refreshing sangria. Don’t miss out!

Cheers!!

We take care of the environment

09Avr

During the refurbishment we wanted to make sure that Hotel Angela looked amazing and perfect for you but at the same time we wanted it to become more environmentally friendly.Save the environment - Hotel Ángela Fuengirola

Everybody knows that we take good care of our guests, but not many people know that we also take care of planet Earth. Doing it is not as difficult as it seems, with a bit of willpower and a bit of effort it is possible to change our bad habits.

Pay attention to what we do at Hotel Angela

  • We only print documents when it is strictly necessary.
  • On the 23rd of March we contributed in our small way by saving energy during the “Planet Hour”. From 8:30 P.M to 9:30 P.M we used as little energy as possible and lighted some candles around the hotel.
  • Our guests have to leave a card on the bed whenever they want their sheets changed.
  • We change the towels when they are left on the bath/shower o whenever the chambermaid thinks it is necessary.
  • We use eco-friendly cleaning products and washing up liquids. They are biodegradable too.
  • We separate rubbish and we recycle paper and plastics.
  • The automatic air conditioning/heating system has been updated and therefore a lot of energy is saved.
  •  We have improved the isolation of our premises in order to maintain a perfect temperature any time of year.
  • The bulbs in the rooms are low energy ones.
  • When you take the card off the energy consumption in rooms is minimum, not just in order to save energy but also for security reasons.

Did you know that Hotel Angela was so eco-friendly? Take note, become aware and do your bit to help from home. Planet earth will be grateful.
