4 star hotel

In looking for a 4 star hotel with good food for next March the wife and i have thought about the Benalmadena Palace and Spa,Sol Aloha Puerto and a little further from the Marina the Sunset Beach.

Any thoughts anyone ? (the Riu's are more expensive)

Thanks

I have stayed at the Aloha Puerto a few times ...fab location as you are 5 min walk from Benalmadena Marina in one direction and 10 to 15 min walk to La Carihuela in the other direction..all a flat walk ...I love the fact you step straight onto the promenade and there are no roads between. Also the local bus stops right outside to Torremolinos town centre as do the taxis.

Some say it's more a very good 3 star than 4 but the breakfast choice was huge and very good and I found it a little less snobby than some 4 stars..couldn't fault it

Also consider the Triton and The Riviera reopens in march after a refit.

Certainly Triton and Riviera both excellent. I like the Aloha for the surrounding restaurants - Spanish Garden, El Trillo, Parilla Enrique Marin, La Vina de Ale and Kates Cottage are all excellent particularly the very underrated Enrique Marin. Kates still does great Steaks.

I would not consider anything more than bed and breakfast in the Aloha, if none of the above restaurants appeal then loads more in the Marina.

Oh yeah - the food in the Aloha is ok too, but the outside selection should not be ignored, all only 5 minutes or less from the front door.

Isn't the Aloha Puerto classed as being Torremolinos?

I've stayed there but to be honest I would favour the Riviera ,which is part of the Medplaya group , for food.

Thanks all for your help, the Riviera is closed until May 1st but will book something soon most probably Half board so we can eat out when we please.

The Aloha is on the very border of Torremolinos and Benalmadena but is in reality much closer to Bnalmadena Central than Torremolinos central

TheSol Aloha Puerto is good ,and is in Torremolinos , which is much nicer than Benalmadena .

Kevin I do so agree.

Airtool if I was going to go into Torremolinos territory I would choose to stay in a suite at the Pez Espada which is a little further along from the Aloha Puerto .

We stopped towards Torre a few years back so we thought we would try around by the marina, although the hotel and spa Benalmadena Palace has very good reviews but its way past marina but we do like a walk afer the evening meal.

Thanks all
