2 week visit April 2011 Sol Aloha Puerto hotel

Am think about spending 2 weeks in april through a tour company staying at Sol Aloha Puerto Hotel.

Can anyone give me info on temperature, area, sightseeing, food, etc.?

Never been to that area and afraid 2 weeks may be too long or not long enough!

Thanks.

Weatherwise April can be totally changeable, you can get a hot day followed by windy and wet, but it's rarely cold (although it might seem a bit nippy as you're from Florida!).

The Aloha Puerto is on the border of Torremolinos and Benalmádena, and is right on the beach. One way along you have Benalmádena Marina, the other way you have the La Carihuela district of Torremolinos, and then further along Torremolinos Town (up on a hill).

The immediate surrounds of the Aloha Puerto are very British and Irish, but if that's not what you want 10 mins walk easily gets you away from all that.

If you're coming for Semana Santa (Holy Week) the processions in Málaga City are not to be missed, both day and night, and are reasonably easily reached by train or bus from this area.

How long you wish to spend depends on what you want to do! Torremolinos is a great base for exploring Andalucía, especially if you hire a car, Granada (Alhambra etc.), Córdoba (Mosque etc.) and Seville are not too far away and can be done as day trips.

Or you can just laze around on the beach and have nice lunches....!

If you're getting a good price on the Aloha Puerto it's an OK hotel, just be aware that it is big, and full of holidaymakers from Northern Europe in various guises!

Have a little Google and you'll get more info.

Happy holidays, NoSoy xx

I've stayed at the Aloha Puerto many times .

It's a very popular choice for American visitors.
