This was our third visit to the Sol Aloha Puerto, now renamed Sol House and it lived up to the usual expectations.
It’s situated right on the sea front, about five minutes walk from Benalmadena harbour. The rooms are huge (ours was a junior suite, but I think that’s pretty standard).
Wi-Fi is fast and free and the TV has UK channels. I should say TVs, as there are two of them, one more than we have at home! You get a free safe and fridge too.
The mojitos are delicious (as you can see it’s happy hour). The food is excellent too, lots of choice, especially in vegetables and fruit. Spanish strawberries are in season, so I indulged at breakfast and dinner!
Last month we stayed at the neighbouring RIU Nautilus and on balance I would say that this is the better hotel. Both are four stars and priced similarly, but this suits a younger clientele (well, fifties, not seventies).
For a winter break that won’t break the bank, you can’t go far wrong with the Costa Del Sol and I’m sure we’ll be back next year.
