The Costa del Sol is one of the most fascinating destinations in Europe. The fine beaches harmonise with the rugged landscape of the mountain ranges, with a wonder mild climate throughtout makes it a great destination for all.

I recently was fortunate to attend the Travel Counsellors International Conference held in Marbella, Costa del Sol, in Spain. I was amazed by its beauty and outstanding accommodation. All lovers of tourism will be amazed at the beauty of the surrounding mountain ranges that rise up from the beaches in Marbella, within easy access to many tourist highlights.

Attending our International Conference in this magical place was indeed an honour, I was accommodated at the Guadalpin Marbella Hotel, only 35 minutes from Malaga International Airport and 5 minutes from Puerto Banus. The Gran Hotel Guadalpin Marbella Spa - 5 Star is located in the Marbella "Golden Mile" 500 m away from the Old Town and 200 m from the Beach. The 117 luxurious double rooms and large luxury family suites with living room, kitchen and terraces with splendid mediterranean views, many of them also have a jacuzzi and private solarium. The choice of 3 restaurants offers an impressive gastronomical choice to all.

I was able to sample the fantastic culture and sights that the Costa del Sol has to offer and gain a wealth of knowledge about this fantastic destination. This included visits to an array of hotels and a host of special excursions including wine tasting, golf, paella cooking, jeep excursions, flamenco dancing, rock climbing, abseiling, archery, mountain biking and a visit to Malaga and the famous Picasso Museum.

Spain a thriving country, the Costa Del Sol features great tourist facilities, accommodation and beauty, with the Mediterranean Sea lapping at it's shores I highly recommend this destination for a holiday of exploration and relaxation.

I had an amazing time at the conference in Marbella. It was a truly inspirational experience, the entertainment and activities were fantastic, the setting was amazing and I look forward to sharing the experience and the knowledge I have gained with my clients.

During a glittering final awards ceremony, I was presented with the 'Best Travel Counsellor' award, this was the first award presented to a South African Agent following the launch of Travel Counsellors in South Africa a little over a year ago! I am delighted to have won such this prestigious award. Because Travel Counsellors has such amazing technology I can source holidays for my customers that simply aren’t available anywhere else and I think that combined with the fact that I always strive to give my customers the very best service means my business is growing faster than even I thought possible.
