Networking in Hotel Victoriá Playa thanks to SMYBEDS
Amuñécar is a perfect place to have a rest and go on holiday to, but we don’t settle for this. Victoria Playa Hotel aspires to give the best to our guests. We work throughout the year on it, although reaching every corner in the world is not always easy. Therefore, we are always willing to collaborate with other leader organizations and project in our sector, as it is SMYBEDS.

SMYBEDS is a Logitravel project, head in something that some people are already used to: the link between technology and travelling. More and more people buy their tickets, book accommodation… on the internet. We owe this to innovative businesses like Logitravel. In this case, SMYBEDS is its tour operation brand. They help traditional agencies to sell more and better, thanks to their tools.

We had the honour of working with them, in concrete, in SMYBEDSFAM, an experience dedicated to family tourism, organised by themselves along with the Patronato Municipal de Almuñécar. The proposal was very interesting. The invited agencies came with their clients. Thus, while these clients were having fun by visiting Almuñécar, the agents attended a workshop, whose tittle is clear about its vocation: “How to get clients freely for your travel agency”.

We weren’t alone in SMYBEDSFAM. Other local hotelier companies, such us Almuñécar Playa Spa Hotel or Hotel Bahía. We are now sure that one’s success is everybody’s success. Having that in mind, we all are disposed to work together on local touristic sector behalf.
From our part, we loved accommodating these guests. They were a charming and lovely group. It was a great pleasure to feel their enthusiasm when they came back from their walk around Almuñécar. In addition, they said goodbye in a very special way, because they stood up and sang a very moving hymn.

As you can see, we are trully satisfied and very content about the SMYBEDFAM experience. Theses days have been very especial for all of us. Vitoria Playa Hotel is an ideal location for family tourism, but we always want to improve ourselves. Collaborating and working with other partners help us on our search for our continuous improvement. Each one, each person has been able to learn and has become an inspiration to one another.

May crosses in Almuñécar: do you know the origin?
Si hay una festividad granadina, es esta. Sin embargo, son muchas las personas que se preguntan de dónde viene la tradición de las cruces de mayo. En el Hotel “Victoria Playa”, somos amantes de nuestra cultura. Por eso, investigamos para contarte todo lo que vamos aprendiendo. Así cuando vengas y veas Almuñécar lleno de cruces floreadas, valorarás mejor su belleza y originalidad.

Qué celebramos en las cruces de mayo de Almuñécar
Jerusalén es Tierra Santa para las tres culturas semíticas. Por tanto, también es un lugar histórico de peregrinaje. En una de estas peregrinaciones, la Emperatriz Flavia Julia Helena, madre del Emperador Constantino, encontró la cruz en la que Jesucristo fue crucificado, en el siglo III después de Cristo.

A pesar de que estamos hablando del Imperio Romano, el Cristianismo tenía ya mucha fuerza en Europa. Tanto es así, que la Emperatriz prefirió abrazar la fe cristiana por encima de su cultura de origen. Por esta razón, tanto la Iglesia Ortodoxa como la Católica la beatificaron, de forma que hoy se la conoce como Santa Helena.

Así pues, su conversión la llevó a visitar las Tierras Santas, con el objetivo de buscar reliquias de la Vera Cruz, la Verdadera Cruz. Su empeño y su determinación fueron tan fuertes, que terminó por ser recompensada con el hallazgo de la misma.

En conmemoración de este logro, Granada se decidió a adornar los patios de las casas con una cruz cubierta de claveles rojos. Rojos, como la sangre de Cristo. Poco a poco estas cruces fueron sacándose a las calles. Cada barrio, cada gremio, cada cofradía quería tener su propia cruz floreada y que esta fuera la más bonita del municipio. Incluso, aunque tuvieran que pedir dinero a los vecinos, con el clásico “un chavico para la cruz”.

Cruces de mayo de Almuñécar hoy
Las Cruces de mayo son hoy una mezcla de costumbres cristianas y andalusíes. Por eso, las cruces, además de estar recubiertas de claveles rojos, y rodeadas de herramientas del campo tradicionales y de las viandas más sencillas, escuchas flamenco y Sevillanas, cuando las visitas. Además, también degustas los platos más tradicionales de nuestra zona: tortilla de patatas, embutidos, morcilla, caracoles… acompañados de manzanilla o rebujito.
Para Almuñécar, las Cruces de mayo son la oportunidad perfecta para reunirse con los amigos y la familia. De hecho, la propia organización de las mismas conserva esa vocación colectiva. Son los propios vecinos y cofrades los que organizan y diseñan las cruces, por lo que recuperan así un sentimiento de hermandad poco común en nuestros días.
En el Hotel “Victoria Playa” reconocemos ese valor familiar como algo propio también. Por eso, tratamos a nuestros huéspedes y nuestros compañeros como lo hacemos con nuestros amigos más íntimos. La cercanía es fundamental para nosotros. Esto explica nuestro compromiso con la excelencia y nuestro deseo de poner a vuestra disposición lo mejor de nosotros mismos y las mejores instalaciones posibles.

Tapas in Almuñécar: route of the "tapa" in spring
If something characterizes the province of Granada are tapas . Unlike what happens in other parts of Spain , many bars and restaurants have a free tapa with each drink . In recent years, the hoteliers of Almuñécar are making a great effort to offer better tapas and, above all, more creative. At Hotel Victoria Playa we are very proud of their desire to excel and we love being able to welcome and take care of those who want to accompany them.

To demonstrate the results of these efforts, this year 2019 marks the Fifth Edition of the Tapa Route in Almuñécar . More than 25 establishments will elaborate original tapas with the typical products of the Costa Tropical . With the aim of offering greater enjoyment, you will have the opportunity to make the route on two different weekends : March 29-31 and April 5-7 .

To give more prominence to the guests, they can vote for the best alternative. The proposal is very funny . In each business, you can ask for a passport where the covers will be with your photograph . After trying them, you can write the score in it. The evaluation of the clients will be 60% of the grade , so that the other 40% will be in charge of a jury composed of 5 people. These will make their tastings and issue their judgments incognito. Bars and restaurants will never know they are serving the professional jury. In the case of clients, for their scores to be taken into account, they must have a minimum of five points scored . We like traveling people! Once you have your passport stamped, you will have to leave it at the delivery points: the polls of the Plaza de la Constitución, the Tourism Office of the Paseo del Altillo or the Aquarium .

But, how to know which businesses are participating in the route of the cover? It is very simple. The City of Almuñécar has created a website that works with geolocation so you know where to go and choose which tapas you want to try first. In any case, at Hotel Victoria Playa we will be happy to help and advise you if you have any questions. When the day is over, you can rest in a more than comfortable room. Even if you want to take a bath before starting the route, you can always take a dip in our heated pool. Also, if you prefer to compensate the excellent food with some exercise, we have a good gym and a Turkish bath . And, of course, our full attention. The guests come first.

Easter Holidays in Almuñécar
Holy Week is always there just when you need it. It is a time to disconnect, rest and regain strength. That is why you usually look for fun destinations but relaxing at the same time. Almuñécar has these characteristics. In addition, you can immerse yourself in the culture and watch the processions after spending a day at the beach. Hotel Victoria Playa is just five minutes away from the beach and ten minutes from the centre. It would be convenient to stay at this hotel and move around.

In Almuñécar, like all over Andalusia, Holy Week is a time for tradition. Therefore, you can see processions every day. However, it is on Holy Thursday when there are more on the street. This makes it an ideal place to discover Easter in the coast of Granada while having fun with other leisure options.

Here you will find one of the most original must-sees on these dates: "El paso Simon", declared an event of National Tourist Interest. It is a representation of the Passion of Jesus Christ through the oldest images of the municipality. The images are carried across town on the shoulders of the devoted horquilleros and horquilleras, to eventually gather together in the Plaza de la Constitución. While listening to the moving narration, you will see the Virgen de los Dolores, the "Nazareno" and San Juan interacting with each other and with the people.

If you want to continue delving into history, the town has a lot to offer considering it is the fifth oldest city in Spain. Founded by the Phoenicians during the third century BC, it has been enclave of all the cultures that have passed through the Iberian Peninsula due to its strategic position and its desirable weather. Thus, you can see all the remains such as the Fish Salting Factory (" Los Salazones "), the Roman aqueduct and the Castillo de San Miguel. In addition, it is an hour away from Granada where you can take the opportunity to visit the Alhambra.

If what you want is to rest, Almuñécar is a very good alternative too. We are in the Tropic of Europe: the Sun is usually our faithful companion. As a result, it is common for many people to go to the beach for the first time during Easter. In addition, starting from Holy Thursday you can have fun at Hotel Victoria Playa with our slides, as well as our facilities, such as the heated pool and the Turkish bath.

Our special climate gives us so much more to offer: a landscape that is a feast for the eyes as well as the tongue. Our region gives us such exceptional fruits such as avocado, mango and cherimoya. You can take them home if you go to the town market and have a taste in the restaurants together with the local wines.

Almuñécar meets the conditions you are looking for a perfect destination for the Holy Week. Tradition, history, good food, good wine, fun and rest. At Hotel Victoria Playa we strive to improve your experience, not only with our facilities, but also with our staff. Therefore, we give our best of ourselves to make your perfect holiday happen.

Weekend of rock and flamenco in Almuñécar
La Semana Santa ha terminado, pero Almuñécar sigue viva y el Hotel “Victoria Playa” también. Nos gusta disfrutar de nuestro pueblo y que nuestros invitados disfruten con nosotros. Por eso, siempre hay algo que hacer en Almuñécar, además de deleitarse con las ventajas naturales de estar en el Trópico de Europa. Lo que va a suceder este fin de semana es un ejemplo de ello. Si visitas Almuñécar, podrás asistir al espectáculo flamenco de David Pérez, un bailaor joven que está teniendo muy buena acogida, y un concierto tributo a U2.

Flamenco en Almuñécar el viernes 23 de abril: David Pérez y su espectáculo de danza “Puntal”

Aunque Almuñécar esté en la costa de Granada, sigue siendo Granada. Nuestra provincia tiene un lugar especial en el flamenco. No solo porque haya sido el lugar de nacimiento de estrellas tan prominentes como Enrique Morente o Pepe el Habichuela, sino porque es una de las cunas del mismo. Granada tiene la suerte de haber parido el Sacromonte, un monte lleno de cuevas donde los gitanos han vivido desde el siglo XII y donde entraron en contacto con las tres culturas. Crearon un flamenco con sello propio, así como una afición que perdura y se renueva sin cesar.

Gracias a esa afición, David Pérez llega desde Sevilla con su espectáculo de danza “Puntal”. Tras haber bailado con figuras como la cantaora Esperanza Fernández, con bailaores como Antonio Canales y con directores como Salvador Tábora, presenta su segundo espectáculo en solitario, “Puntal”, donde explora el flamenco “jondo”, a través de tres ejes: el cante, el baile y el toque. Así, verás al bailaor y a su arte sin adornos, puros, a pecho descubierto. Es ahí donde un artista demuestra su hondura. Dicen en el Sacromonte, que bailando por soleá no se puede mentir. Se sabe o no se sabe. En “Puntal”, David Pérez demuestra que sabe.

Rock en Almuñécar el 28 de abril: Tributo a U2, Underskin el domingo

Por otra parte, el domingo tenemos a Tributo U2 y su show Underskin. Si hay una banda de rock que ha dejado huella es U2. No es de extrañar que haya tantas versiones de sus canciones ni que hayan surgido tantas formaciones que los homenajean. En el caso de Tributo U2, estamos hablando de una tribute band que ha girado por todo el mundo para llevar los éxitos más representativos de la formación liderada por Bono.

Tributo U2 nacieron en Italia, pero, como decíamos, han dado la vuelta al mundo, desde que comenzaran su andadura en el año 2008. Desde entonces, han demostrado tanta calidad que el propio Bono quiso felicitarlos en persona, tras coincidir en Dublín. Por tanto, es seguro que los fans de U2 podrán disfrutar con sus canciones favoritas, gracias al estupendo recorrido que Underskin hace por el repertorio de un grupo que ya forma parte de la historia del Pop-Rock.

Además de estos dos espectáculos, también está programado un concierto del Joven Coro de la Orquesta de Granada en la Iglesia de la Encarnación. Pero hemos querido destacar estos espectáculos porque resumen a la perfección lo que ha sido la historia musical de Granada en el último siglo: un viaje por el mestizaje y la fusión de las músicas del mundo. Para que tú también puedas emprender ese viaje, el Hotel “Victoria Playa” te ofrece estupendas habitaciones y un equipo que trabaja para dar el mejor servicio al cliente. Tendrás también a tu disposición nuestras piscinas, jacuzzi y, por supuesto, nuestro show nocturno de música en directo. Si queréis pasar un fin de semana romántico, os aconsejamos que apostéis por nuestras suites, ya que incluyen jacuzzi privado.
