We stayed at the Hotel "Beatriz Palace & Spa", and everyone was delighted with our spacious rooms, all of which had a fabulous view looking out to sea. Breakfast in the Hotel was a buffet - and we certainly ate well this week!
The weather was perfect for our holiday, nice and sunny but not too hot. Most days we spent time in the pool, relaxing and soaking up the sun. We also had some great shopping experiences in the towns of Fuengirola and "Mijas". Mijas is an old and quaint little town in the hills behind Fuengirola.
One day was spent at Benalmadena, another nice resort along the coast from our Hotel. We walked around the very pretty Marina and had planned to go out on a boat but the sun was so hot and the boats had very little shade we decided it better not to go.
It was Tony's birthday while we were away. So everyone signed a card for him and at breakfast he opened the small presents that we had bought for him. After breakfast we drove to Marbella – a lovely place with many shops and bars. At dinner one of the waiters (Daniel) had arranged for a Birthday cake for Tony and we all sang Happy Birthday whist he blew out the candles.
