Learn Spanish in Andalucia on the Costa Tropical
Dive into the art of the Spanish language on a four-week course at a local language school, set across the road from the botanical gardens in Almuñécar and just 10 minutes' walk from your hotel. Lessons are once a day, five days a week and cater for all abilities. The rest of your trip is yours to spend relaxing and exploring pretty Almuñécar while putting what you’ve learnt into practice.
Set on the pebble and sandy shores of San Cristobal in Almuñécar, Hotel Helios Costa Tropical is an idyllic setting for a relaxed break. Lounge by the outdoor pool or surrender to the spa's rejuvenating Jacuzzi featuring sea views. Whether you crave a mid-morning coffee or live music in the evening, the hotel's cosy bar has you covered. Head to the roof terrace, too, for spectacular sunset views. Or step outside and take a walk along the seafront promenade and find yourself a quaint cafe to people watch.
