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

15Jul

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 Yaramar, 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 Yaramar we definitely recommend you not to miss this celebration from your balcony or from our Blue Sea, our pool bar.

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

San Juan’s Night 2019

17Jun

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

In the past, here on the blog of Hotel Yaramar, 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 Yaramar has prepared a very special event, together with Hotel Angela 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 our Rivera Beach Club there will be a very special party for all guests from Hotel Angela, Hotel Florida Spa, and of course, Hotel Yaramar.

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 of sardines and one drink for only 5€.

By the way, regarding the “júas”, if you are currently at Hotel Yaramar and you really enjoy doing crafts we would like to inform you that on Friday, the 21st , from 11:30 by the pool, we will need your help to create the “júas” that will represent Hotel Yaramar in this Sunday’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!
