Exploring nature is a passion for many. This activity allows us to bond with our family members, while discovering the beautiful 131 natural parks and 15 national parks across Spain. Many of these are near Elba Hotels. Today, we are going over some of our favourites to celebrate the European Day of Parks. Are you joining us?
There is another country at a stone’s throw away from Andalusia – and we are not talking about Portugal; we are talking about the UK. Gibraltar, only a few kilometres away from Elba Estepona and under two hours away from Elba Costa Ballena, is the perfect getaway to get to know the British culture and traditions.
What not to miss in Gibraltar
The most well-known attraction in Gibraltar is the Rock. You can reach the top riding the funicular, on foot (not suitable for those who don’t like steps) or by car. Once there, you can enjoy the views and meet the famous macaques, who mainly frequent the area known as the Guarida de los Monos (Apes’ Den). These African apes are a tailless species, and have inhabited Gibraltar for thousands of years. And by the way – do not feed them, you will be fined!
Did you know that 15th May is the International Day of Families? At Elba Hotels, we are joining the celebration with plans specifically designed for all family members. We hope you enjoy your holidays!
Let’s start with the little ones. You may already know our visitors’ favourite mascot: Pepe. He loves meeting our youngest guests, and visiting them during lunchtime or at the pool. We also have fantastic animation services, as well as daily and nightly activities in all our seaside hotels, adapted to different ages and languages. They will have a fantastic time meeting other kids!
Even though most of us associate Cádiz with beautiful sandy beaches, there is a hidden gem in the northeastern region of the province, bordering Málaga.
If you love hiking and mountains, the Sierra de Grazalema, which was declared a UN Biosphere Reserve in 1977, is a must. It is located in the Cordillera Penibética, and it is the perfect sport for a nature getaway. Hikers can choose from about 20 different routes, with varying degrees of difficulty.
Hiking routes in Sierra de Grazalema
The ‘Calzada Romana’ route is about 3.5 km long, and is considered one of the easiest, as the terrain is pretty even throughout. It runs between Benaocaz and Ubrique, and it is extremely well preserved. The archaeological remains show the many peoples – Phoenicians, Romans, Arabs… – that have inhabited this area across the centuries. Each of them has left their mark, and influenced traditions and customs.

Although at Elba Hotels we are romantic 365 days of the year, we cannot miss our date with Valentine’s Day.
There is just one month left for this special day and we already have everything prepared for you to enjoy with your partner a unique night or romantic weekend. Because love… must be celebrated!
One of the most romantic options we suggest is to enjoy a romantic dinner at our hotel in Almeria, in an intimate atmosphere with a very special menu filled with surprises, all of it accompanied by live music to enliven the evening. To culminate the evening, we will place a bottle of cava in all our comfortable rooms.
If you celebrate Valentine’s Day in Estepona… love is all you need! Before your romantic dinner we suggest you to toast with Rosé Cava while you contemplate from your room the breath-taking views of the sea, which are already waiting to welcome you. If you wish to disconnect from your hectic life, you have our Thalasso Spa at your entirely disposition.
Once again, Almeria welcomes a great international film selection in its Thirteenth Edition of the International Festival of Short Films “Almeria en Corto” (“Almeria in Short”). The film festival is a great option for those who are enjoying a few days of holidays at our Almeria Hotel and a fantastic opportunity to enjoy one of the world’s most emblematic festivals within the genre.
After the success of the previous editions, the International Festival of Short Films returns to the Municipal Auditorium Maestro Padilla, counting with the collaboration of great part of the Almeria population, as the Festival has become a tradition within the “Land of Cinema”.
The Festival starts today, December 2, and will stay with us until next December 6. Once again, especial spots within the Festival will be designated as meeting points for national and international filmmakers, critics and historians. Also, the event has the intention to add value to the project “Almeria, the Land of Cinema” and the city’s cinematographic history.
We already have a host of guests in our hotels that come to hold meetings and other corporation events. For this reason, after a long day of work, the best option is to have a place where you can unwind, relax and have fun. With this purpose, Elba Hotels, specialized in business and corporate events, offer different services to make your stay memorable, even on those hard working days.

It features support service for any kind of organization or event, allowing all kind of celebrations. The hotel -with views to the sea and the golf cours- has several sport facilities as well as Jacuzzi and gym, allowing the guests to unwind after their business meetings. The hotel also hosts different shows during your sta, and these can be themed to the organiser’s taste and requirements.
