Royal Ascot Ladies’ Day, 2017

a fantastic day

Royal Ascot Ladies' Day, 2017 - El Oceano Beach Hotel, Mijas Costa, Spain

To say we had an utterly fantastic day would be an understatement.

Royal Ascot Ladies’ Day, Thursday 22nd June, 2017.  El Oceano Beach Hotel & Restaurant.

To start with, we’d very much like to thank everyone for coming!  All all regular guests and those new to us, you all made for a truly excellent day at El Oceano!  Guests started arriving in the early afternoon for Bubbly Reception.  The meal was served around 2pm and the racing started around 3pm and was watched by some on the large TV.

A Beautiful El Oceano Menu

Manchego ‘Aranchini’ and Salmon Cerviche Crispy Wonton were the starter choices, followed by Lemon Thyme Chicken or Roast Loin of Cod.  We think the food we very well received!

Johnny Baker entertained us during the afternoon and when all were finished, we were joined by legendary TV comedian, Stan Boardman!  More on that below!

After Stan’s hilarious routine, Masquerade Duo entertained us until the early hours.

So we thought we’d show you a few photos of the day’s shenanigans!

The ladies were beautiful, it was great to see so many hats and stunning outfits.  The Ascot Ladies’ Day horse racing went both well and not well, if the reactions of the group by the TV was anything to go by!  The atmosphere was electric, everyone was in a great mood and the weather was just perfect!  Add to that a surprise guest appearance, and we had the perfect El Oceano Experience!

Huge thanks to longtime resident pianist, Johnny Baker, for another fantastic set!  And… looked who dropped in!

Legendary comedian and entertainer, Stan Boardman, happened to be staying at the hotel and was good enough to give us an impromptu – and hilarious – routine!

An occasional guest, Stan was enjoying the Mijas Costa weather and, after joining the Ascot Ladies’ Day celebrations, was persuaded to give us a stand-up routine in the early evening!  Stan, of course, had everyone rolling!

All part of the El Oceano Experience!

And finally, a huge ‘thank you’ to Mark Peters from 93.6 Global Radio for his photography and all-round good-egg-ness.  Cheers Mark!
