End of February 2013

Myself and my friends are coming over from 27th Feb- staying for 4 nights. What is the weather usually like at that time of year? Will there be many bars/restaurants open? Bit worried about the weather being bad, no where being opened and us being bored! Please help!

You are nearer Fuengirola, even in summer limited offer in the area.

You will need to go to the centre of either, Fuengirola or Benalmadena for anything opened.

Weather could be late teens, but colder at night.

As mentioned, there is nothing round the polynesia to be open. Very limited choice. I would consider staying in the resort itself, otherwise you will spend a fortune on taxis, or be happy with the few bars on site. Taxi to Marina area of Benalmadena around 8 to 10€.

Hi!

Vistamar is better situated than Polynesia, but you will still be on the outskirts. At that time of year I would aim for somewhere closer to Bonanza Square. Have you investigated an apartment in the Jupiter/Minerva complex?

We had a few days in Feb a few years ago, and although we wore fleece jackets, they were often taken off as it was warm. Definitely not sunbathing weather, but pleasant enough for walking.

Las Arenas, Villasol, Bali and Sirocco would be better choices IMO.

Finally got around to replying! We got it changed to Sunset Beach Club?

Can anyone recommend any day trips we could go on during our stay? Thanks!

Use the local buses into Malaga for a day. Ronda is well worth a trip. We have just done our second visit to the Safari park at Estepona. Well worth a visit. Better with a hire car tho, as the bus takes the best part of 2 hours both ways.

I recommend the Selwo Aventura at Estepona too, plus if you go to the Selwo Marina in Benalmadena and get a triple ticket that covers both places plus the cable car up the mountain. Here's a link:
