We had no intention of visiting Almeria on our vacation -- it's Spain's hottest, driest, poorest province -- but decided to give it a shot. We were in for a pleasant surprise! First of all, Almeria is a "real" place, where "real" people live. You can find the Spain you remember from 20-30 years ago (the good and the bad), and people are kind and friendly. The best part of Almeria is Plaza Vieja Hotel and Lounge set in a pretty square close to a batch of restaurants and within walking distance of the Alcabaza. The staff was unfailingly gracious (with their limited English and our awkward Spanish), attentive, alert, and accommodating. The room had to be, by far, the most beautiful of our trip -- huge, quiet, sun-filled. And, oh, those Arab baths downstairs! Discover Almeria!
