This year the hotel will increase the children's area , with more stalls, cookie decoration, sand art and a bouncy castle, as well as a visit to see Papa Noel, who will work extra hard this year to listen to all the children’s Christmas wishes and collect their letters to him personally.

The market will open from 13:00 until 20:00, with choirs singing at different times during the day. Papa Noel will be there from 14:00 till late, passing through the lobby to light the tree just as it gets dark. Open to the public. Recommended parking areas are Laguna Village, pedestrian access via the promenade, or parking on Calle de Mare Nostrum, where there is plenty of public parking, as parking on the hotel grounds can become congested during the early evening.
