Hotel Myramar, Castle Beach, Fuengirola - Our second home

We have now for 7 years stayed at Hotel Myramar in spring, summer, autumn and winter seasons. We will continue to return, and may well call it our second home.


That is a question difficult to answer  because you all have different expectations of what you want and/or require for long stay periodes.
I will therefor try to present some photos showing what we find attractive here at the hotel. For opportunities outside the hotel´s protected areas, you have to read some of my other blogposts from Fuengirola, Andalusia and Costa del Sol in Spain.

The first image (above) shows the pool area on an ordinary day in October. Lots of sun-beds available. The large pool is about 60 meters long with a depth from 30 to 180 cm. A pool for the smallest children in front, and two or three safeguards always there to watch what is going on in the water. A HC ramp and lift is available to bring you down to 120 cm

Outside the Olea restaurant and Bar tables are normally occupied from breakfast till late evenings.
In the background of this image you can see the large shopping mall (Miramar) where all kinds of shops (including foods) can be found. Myramar is an apartment hotel where you may make all your meals by your own, but if you want breakfast, snacks or dinner the restaurants serves you well.

This is the salad bar ready for dinner.

For those interested in physical activities in addition to walking along the beaches at Costa del Sol, the hotel har 7 Padel tennis courts. (2 for children), and a minigolf area within its fence-protected area.

The hotel also has an indoor swimming pool with hot water, a gym and a library where guests have left books and swapped to others during their stay.

At the reception you can get all the services needed and the personnel are very nice and responsive to your wishes. Any problem in your apartment, tell the desc and maintenance people will within minutes / hours solve your complaints with a smile.

During summertime there are various shows (both for kids and adults) going on at the Aqua Bar. This image is from a Flamenco show.

The children are taken good care of by the professional crew and the mini-disco with competitions are entertainment both for children and (grand)parents

 At the AquaBar refreshments can be enjoyed during summertime. At other seasons there are two other bars with Happy Hours to be visited.
 A blogpost about Myramar without the hotel-cat "Amina" is impossible. She always arrives to the areas where food can be achieved, and she is very selective for where to visit and sleep during the days. At nights she is all around protecting her area against other animals who try to enter her home range.
Ending up with a night photo showing the entrance area and the Olea Bar and restaurant in Block 1 and the growing moon shining from a dark and warm sky. Many Norwegians could certainly find Myramar at Costa del Sol an alternative to the Canary Islands during autumn and winter.
I know that the management would look forward to welcome more Scandinavians to this hotel.
