Florida Hotel

The Hotel Florida Spa is located just metres from the beach. With a number of bars and restaurants on the doorstep as well, the location is really hard to beat. There’s even a Willy Wonka-style glass elevator to take guests to their rooms. And when you take a trip up, you’ll be treated to some of the best views across Fuengirola. The hotel offers a relaxing atmosphere for all its guests. As part of this, you’ll find an on-site spa and wellness centre that offers everything from chocolate wraps to facial massages and reflexology. In the evening, you’re spoilt for choice between a themed buffet and an a la carte menu.

Things to do in Costa del Sol

When you stay at the Hotel Florida Spa, you’re right in the heart of the action. There are seven kilometres of beach here, as well as extensive shopping opportunities, golf courses and a vibrant nightlife scene. The main square, Plaza de la Constitucion, is only a short walk away. Although Fuengirola has been redeveloped over the years, spots such as this have maintained their traditional Spanish feel. If you’re looking for a day away from the beach and the shops, you can visit the medieval Moorish fortress of Sohail Castle, which is perched on the hill and offers great views of the area.

Resort Summary

Fuengirola has been sensitively redeveloped as a tourist destination in recent years. Although you will find high-rise hotel blocks, you can still get lost in the narrow pedestrian streets. The main square, Plaza de la Constitucion, has retained its traditional charm and is the focal point of the summer feria, when the whole town takes part in the annual street celebrations. There is also a Medieval Moorish fortress – Sohail Castle – perched on the hill overlooking the River Estuary. What most people come for though, are the beaches and nightlife. Furthermore, the food on offer covers everything from British pub grub to Spanish tapas, and lots of local wine.
