Combine the high-octane buzz of a Formula One race day with a gorgeous break in sunny Spain at the four-star ALEGRIA Maripins. Including flights, tickets to Sunday’s main race, a modern Double Room, and daily breakfast, it’s a holiday like no other.
Taking place at the historic Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, the Spanish Grand Prix is the first F1 race hosted on European soil in the 2019 calendar and it promises to be a stellar affair. Having hosted its first race in 1991, it’s been a regular fixture of the sport ever since. Won by Lewis Hamilton in 2018, who will be victorious this year?
Please note that you can add both Saturday qualifying tickets and upgraded grandstand tickets for Sunday to your holiday by speaking with a sales agent.
The ALEGRIA Maripins rises majestically over the seaside promenade of Malgrat de Mar and the azure Mediterranean Sea. Close to the nearby golden beach, it’s a perfect location for holidaymakers seeking a relaxing place in the sun. The town centre of Malgrat de Mar is only a few minutes away and features numerous shops and restaurants, while the wider region of Catalonia can be explored easily too. Bike hire is available through the hotel reception, and the cultural hub of Barcelona is about an hour away via direct train from the town centre.
When you are not busy soaking up the warm weather, there is a plethora of activities and facilities all ready to be explored within the hotel. Go for a swim in the large outdoor pool or make a splash in the sea; challenge someone to a game of table tennis or billiards in the games room, or cut loose at one of the karaoke nights. The youngest guests can sign up for the kids’ club at the ALEGRIA Maripins, where a host of activities and games are put on each day. Dining can be had at the main buffet restaurant, which serves a whole host of local and international dishes.
The ALEGRIA Maripins is found above the resort of Malgrat de Mar, a beautifully quaint seaside destination found on the Costa Brava. Technically belonging to the province of Barcelona in Catalonia, it takes around an hour to get to the bustling city centre via train or car. Malgrat de Mar is an ideal holiday destination with lots of beautiful beaches, breathtaking scenery, and a quiet pace of life perfect for relaxing in. There are several restaurants, bars, and cafés found along the beachside promenade and each of them provide great local fare. When you make it into Barcelona’s city centre, be sure to take in a few of favourite son Antoni Gaudi’s artworks, with the unmistakable La Sagrada Familia cathedral being the pick of the bunch if you can only visit one. Aside from these amazing landmarks, a trip to Barcelona isn’t complete without strolling down La Rambla and taking in a meal at one of the many amazing restaurants on show. Additionally, football fans can watch a game at Camp Nou and see a certain Lionel Messi ply his trade.
