Date of stay : Christmas 2020
We stayed at the fabulous Gran Hotel Miramar in Malaga over the Christmas period 2020 and had a wonderful time. Even though we suffered the dreaded Covid-19 restrictions, which limited the options in the hotel, we still managed to soak up the festive atmosphere and enjoy the hotel and the city itself.
The hotel is housed in a beautiful building from a bygone era and has been recently refurbished into the magnificent property it is today. As a member of ‘The Leading Hotels of the World’ the hotel lives up to its reputation and is the most luxurious property in Malaga. Situated steps from the promenade and fabulous beach, and a mere 10 minutes walk to the main shopping street, the hotel is perfectly situated in the city.
We thoroughly enjoyed the comfortable rooms with robes, slippers and Bvlgari products, fabulous food, and above all the gala dinner that the hotel put on on Christmas Eve. Accompanied by a pianist playing a selection of tunes it really was a special occasion, and for a moment there we forgot all about the troubles in the World!
The outdoor pool area was closed during our visit, not sure whether this was covid related or due to the time of year, but the indoor pool was fully operational and we enjoyed the spa circuit at €25 each. We were very lucky with the weather during our stay, and were blessed with warm sunny days for exploring the city. (See our separate video / blog on Christmas in Malaga). Also breakfast was limited, again all due to the Covid restrictions and reduced menu, but we are sure it would be fabulous during normal times.
We have put a short youtube video here on the hotel for your information. If you are looking for somewhere to spend Christmas next year, then we can highly recommend the Gran Hotel Miramar. Wonderful memories…
