The 4 star Sunset Beach Club is very well positioned on the sea front promenade leading into Benalmadena. In addition to the wide range of facilities available within the Sunset Beach Club you will find shops and cafes within the immediate vicinity, and a bus stop on your door step with easy access to Malaga and other towns and resorts on the Costa del Sol and local markets.


Enjoy the benefits of staying in a spacious apartment with a lounge/dining room, separate bedroom, kitchenette and full bathroom. The apartments will sleep up to four persons but we are able to offer them to our guests for double or even sole occupancy for a low supplement. There is room to invite your friends up for a drink - or even a game of bridge on the balcony or terrace with its "bridge" table and four chairs! The kitchenette is perfect to rustle up a snack or hot drink or just chill the wine!


We have a wonderful bridge room on the 7th floor with spectacular ocean views from its ceiling to floor windows. Festivities will include a welcome cocktail party with drinks and canapes; and an excellent Christmas Day Lunch and New Year’s Eve Gala dinner with drinks included.


This region of Spain is great for golfers. The Sunset Beach club has a dedicated golf and leisure desk open all year round. Here you can get discounted green fees at more than 30 partner courses and special offers at the sister resort, la Cala Golf. Guests have the option to book independently from a wide range of tours, or we can organise exclusive tours for our bridge group if there is enough interest. Not to be missed is a trip to the pretty, white washed town of Mijas. Shop in Marbella or discover Gibraltar and take a trip up the rock to see the monkeys as well as St Michaels cave and tax free shopping.


During your duplicate bridge holidays nothing is obligatory, you can play in as many or as few bridge sessions as you wish. Our bridge programmes will vary according to the length of your break and in addition to playing bridge, we will always endeavour to provide a minimum of two bridge seminars for breaks of 7 days or more.

All of our bridge holidays include bridge seminars with handouts in addition to a varied and interesting duplicate bridge programme. We use duplimated boards every evening to ensure fairness and consistency. Bridge hand records are provided, as well as bridge partners if needed.

Your duplicate bridge will usually be available twice daily, at 2.30pm and 7.45pm. The afternoon sessions usually finish between 4.45pm and 5pm, the evenings between 10.45pm - 11.15pm. The afternoons are normally given over to open pairs/teams. We endeavour to vary the evening sessions, with a balance between teams and pairs, with at least one Swiss style event during a two-week bridge break.

During all evening sessions, we utilise a duplimate machine, which means we are able to produce hand record sheets at the end of the session and when we have two or more sections, both can play the same hands. On our UK duplicate bridge breaks, provided numbers allow, we usually will lay on an "Early Bird" afternoon session on the day of arrival.

We don’t forget you are on holiday, our bridge programmes allow time for relaxation plus giving you plenty of opportunity to explore the surrounding area and relax.
