Obama’s stay at Finca Cortesín has become the topic of conversation for the residents of this tourist town on the Malaga coast of just over 6,000 inhabitants, its mayor, José Carrasco, explained to EFE. “In the hotel they are very discreet and they do not usually tell us who they have staying with -Carrasco pointed out- but today everyone was talking about it -outside and inside the town- something that represents very good publicity for Casares after two hard years of pandemic”, he underlined.

It is not the first time that the former American president or his family have chosen the Costa del Sol to rest on their trips to Europe; in August 2010 Michell Obama, still the first lady of the US, and her daughter Sasha were staying with some friends at Villa Padierna in Marbella; and in 2019 they did it at the Gran Hotel Miramar in the capital.
