What’s on – Phoenix Club Christmas Break 2017

Due to circumstances out of our control due to many hotels not taking large groups and with the increase in hotel prices on the Costa del Sol, we have had to look further afield for our Christmas break this year.

Therefore, this Christmas will be spent at the 4* Best Oasis Tropical Hotel in Mojácar which is 2 hours by coach from Algarrobo.

The Hotel Best Oasis Tropical is situated in the traditional Andalusian town of Mojácar Costa and is located 50 meters from the beach of Mojácar and offers views of the Mediterranean Sea.

It offers very comfortable rooms with free WiFi, entertainment, buffet restaurant with show cooking and a Gala Dinner on Christmas Eve. It also includes wine with meals. This hotel does not offer an ‘all inclusive deal’ but we hope the price will be attractive, especially as the exchange rate has bombed.

The price is €230pp based on 2 sharing, single supplement is €25pp (very limited)  Deposit €75.00 non refundable.

This includes:

  • Full  Board with wine in the Buffet restaurant
  • Evening entertainment
  • Gala meal on the 24thDecember
  • Free WiFi
  • Coach Fare
  • Day trip to Cartagena
  • Gratuities for restaurant staff and driver

For more information on any of our trips or events call Gail on 951067723, emailphoenixsocialclub@yahoo.co.uk or catch us on the web at www.phoenixsocialclub.co.uk.  The Phoenix club is a registered charitable association raising funds for 3 local charities and SSAFA in the UK.  We meet every Tuesday between 12 and 2 at Bar La Vega in Torre del Mar and you can book or pay from 12.15 onwards.  Do pop in and meet us.
