Benalmadena Cable Cars

17helmi

It might be winter, but here in Costa del Sol we are very fortunate, and our weather is still amazing.  

When on holiday, specially if the sun shines, there is no better plan than visiting the tourist attractions of the destination.

In the case of Costa del Sol, one of the most popular ones is the Benalmadena Cable Cars.

The Benalmadena cable car route links Benalmadena Costa with the peak of Monte Calamorro, at approximately 800 metres above sea level. This therefore is one of the highest points in Costa del Sol.

From the peak of the Calamorro you will enjoy stunning views of the coast and, if the weather allows it and it is a clear day, you might even manage to see Sierra Nevada, Gibraltar or the North of Africa.

This is a well worth trip as not many places offer such great views. In February and March the service is available daily from 11:00 A.M to 6:00 P.M, the journey lasts about 15 minutes and each cable car takes up to 4 people. 

The access to this service is very easy as the cable cars are taken just beside the Benalmadena – Arroyo de la Miel train station, which means that you can get there easily thanks to the train line that connects Fuengirola with other important resorts in Costa del Sol.

Enjoy some of the most breath-taking views in Costa del Sol!

Great Halloween Pumpkin Exhibition

28loka

Halloween is almost here, so as at Hotel Yaramar we love any kind of celebration, we will do our popular pumpkin competition again this year.

Despite Halloween is not something we have celebrated in Spain for long, in our hotel Halloween has now become a tradition.

Year after year our staff have proved they are amazing artists, and they dominate at teamwork. All participating departments do an outstanding job, have great imagination and put a lot of effort in their scary projects.

The results are always awesome, so we are afraid it is going to be difficult to choose a winner as all pumpkins are amazing.

This year we have decided to innovate a bit and we are not only going to have our pumpkins on display at the hotel lobby so our guests can vote for them on the 30th, but we also have organised a great exhibition on the 31st in our commercial gallery. There you will be able to see the spooky creations the staff of Hotel Yaramar, and of our sister hotels Hotel Angela and Hotel Florida Spa have prepared this Halloween.

If you have the fortune of currently being on holiday at Hotel Yaramar, we encourage you to vote for your favourite on the 30th and to visit our great global exhibition as by doing it you can win a great prize.

If you are not with us at the moment do not worry, as on our Facebook page we will indicate you how you can vote for the one you like the most as by doing it you will also have a chance to win a prize.

As in previous year the winning department will get a meal out for the whole teamGood luck and may the best pumpkin win!

Happy Halloween!!

Fair of Fuengirola 2019

30syys

As many of you might already know the Fair of Fuengirola starts this week on Sunday, the 6th of October.

For this reason and because we love sharing our lovely traditions with you on Thursday, the 3rd of October, Hotel Yaramar has organised at 4:00 P.M at the Yarabar a great free activity about the fair specially for you!

In it we will give you information about the fair, we will inform you about what is going on in town and at the fairground, we will explain you about the traditional flamenco dress and the accessories that go with it and we will explain you what to eat and drink at the fairground during the fair.

Regarding the official programme of the fair we would like to highlight and recommend the flamenco mass in honour of Virgen del Rosario. Every year this is held on the 7th of October at 10:00 on Constitution Square, right in the city centre.  This mass is not a common one; it does have the wow factor as it is quite festive and most of the many who attend it come wearing beautiful flamenco dresses.

If you want to have fun with us and get some information about the fair, we would love to see you on Thursday at 4:00 P.M in our Yarabar. By the way, besides good info we will also give a free glass of rebujito, the most popular drink of the fair, to all guests who attend our fun special activity.

Enjoy the fair at Hotel Yaramar!!
