The years have passed and Salou has changed a lot: what used to be a small coastal town with local tourism has become a holiday destination that receives guests from all over the world. But, although the time has passed, the sun and the beach are still the main protagonists in Salou. In these old photos we can appreciate the great change that the Catalan city has undergone for more than 50 years. Photographies: Quadern de Sons and Quina la Fem?
In our MedPlaya 50th anniversary contest we have received many memories that you have lived at our hotels in recent years. Although all memories are very special, we love receiving photographs from other decades. The photos in front of the hotel are a classic! Just look at Susan, on the left, in front of the Rio Park Hotel in 1980, on her first holiday in Benidorm, and Donna, on the right, in front of the San Eloy Hotel in 1986, who, in her own words, “fell in love with it at first sight”. The Riviera Hotel was already in Benidorm […]
After a long day at the beach, the sun goes down and it is time to go out to enjoy the good weather offered by Platja d’Aro and the Mediterranean. While during the day the town looks crowded, when night falls, it is like people have multiplied. There is an incredible atmosphere every night! And Platja d’Aro offers nightlife for all tastes. Which one will you go for? Are you one of those who dance till sunrise? Platja d’Aro has what you need: discos, clubs and music pubs of all kinds and for all types of audience to shake your […]

With the arrival of the heat, it is time to go out non-stop, but in order to do that we need a city that offers us everything we need. Benidorm, without a doubt, is a great option— it offers thousands of activities to experience the best summer of our lives. The best theme parks. The range of theme parks and leisure facilities in Benidorm is so wide and varied that you will not know which one to choose. If water parks are your thing, you can choose Aqualandia or Aqua Natura Benidorm. If, instead, you prefer animals, Mundomar Benidorm is waiting […]

Malaga, Torremolinos, Seville, Granada, Benalmádena… We all think of these cities when we talk about Andalusia, not taking into account that this region hides large secret places that few tourists have yet discovered. That is why today we bring you four little-known spots in Andalusia that will leave you in awe. Enjoy them! Benalmadena’s Buddhist stupa. In the middle of the Sierra de Mijas and very close to Benalmadena’s centre we find a building in Buddhist architectural style that turns out to be the largest Buddhist temple in Western Europe. If you want to learn about Himalayan culture first hand, […]
