Benidorm or Costa del Sol in October?

Me and my mum want to book an all inclusive holiday to Spain in October but I am torn between the Costa Blanca and Costa del Sol, weather wise. I thought the further south you went, the better weather or is the Costa Blanca pretty much the same?

Hi Susan, Benidorm has a micro climate that helps the temps.

Average temperatures;-

Costa del Sol Oct;

Temperature 18°C 64°F

Low Temperature 14°C 57°F

High Temperature 22°C 72°F

Costa Blanca

Temperature 21°C 70°F

Low Temperature 14°C 57°F

High Temperature 25°C 75°F

Be much more doing in Benidorm at that time too. Recommend the Hotel Royal or Don Pancho. Incidentally I've stayed at both hotels you've reviewed including the Aloha Puerto on CDS. Be much more for you in Benidorm in October entertainment wise. And if you're taking your mum in a wheelchair, Benidorm is much flatter.

Incidentally the Hotel Royal is A/I but the Don Pancho does up to F/B. Did you take a holiday in Benidorm after posting last time Susan?

Weather wise there isn't much difference. Resort wise they are poles apart. Benidorm has so much more going on. However c.d.s has a lot of great places to visit nearby, such as Granada, Seville and good old Gibraltar, its Benidorm for me though
