Historical Traveller Reviews of Sol Aloha Puerto Hotel
Brilliant Hotel, brilliant location.from A TripAdvisor Member
You must visit the Marina when you are there too, it`s stunning and has a few bars and restaurants that are well worth a visit.
Overall a fantastic holiday and for someone who never goes to the same place twice I think I`ve been converted. Suitable for all age groups, a great hotel, go and enjoy it.
Value for money, if you get a cheap deal....from A TripAdvisor Member
The location could not be better, you are litteraly 2-3min walk form the marina positioned right on the beach, there are nice resturaunts close by and the bars and shops only a short walk.
If you dont like cats dont go to this hotel, I must have seen about 15 mulling around the grounds of the hotel at all times. As far as the loungers go, you better be up at the crack of dawn if you want positioned at the pool, it was really busy in May, I would hate to think what it would be like in peak season. That said the hotel was good, very clean and the rooms were of a good size. I would go again without any doubts.
Good locationfrom loseapoint

Staff were helpful, tour guide was good at his job. Accomodation was satisfactoryand clean. Food was cafeteria style but there was sufficient variety to satisfy most tastes.

Definitely 4 star loved the placefrom A TripAdvisor Member
Brilliant - We stayed at the Alloha Puerto from 23rd Dec to 30th Dec
2004. Excellent food, the Gala Dinner on Christmas day was super. Staff very friendly and helpful. We stayed in the south facing room which was brilliant towels changed every day and bedding every other day food generally was very good and the entertainment over Christmas was very good. There were a few bars open if you wanted a change in the evening. It helped as the weather for the time of the year was wonderful - no rain. Location was very good. Although it wasn't cheap the value was good. Tour to Gibralter was good value. Would stay there again
First thing you'll notice is that there's practically no parking (there's not even space for you to stop and unload luggage) and hotel staff were less than helpful in suggesting where there might be anywhere to park.
The room I stayed in was adequate but nothing better than that. It appeared to have been refurbished recently but still looked tatty and in dire need of a makeover. It was also very noisy.
The hotel has a decent pool but getting hold of sun loungers is almost impossible (unless you're prepared to get up at 6am to deposit your towel on one). You also bizarrely have to pay 60c for each sun lounger (surely it would be simpler to just make them free rather than employ someone who's sole purpose is to annoy everyone by asking them for 60c every day).
On the plus side, the hotel has a great location right beside the beach and is just a few steps away from the Puerto Deportivo de Benalmadena which has a good selection of bars and restaurants.
Overall, not a bad hotel but needs a lot of improvement. Its best feature is its location and I would only bother going if you can get it at a very good price.
very sociablefrom A TripAdvisor Member
Not really for singlesfrom ilovetravel50
I didn't go into the hotel bar because I didn't feel comfortable on my own. It is definitely a hotel for couples or families not for singles but I have come back refreshed and not so stressed. I would stay there again but either with family or friends - not on my own. Most of the staff were very polite. Meal times were good - breakfast didn't end until 10.45 am - so you didn't have to get up too early and dinner was at 9.30pm.
enjoyed the aloha puertofrom A TripAdvisor Member
The only down side was there was no quiet lounge to sit in if you did'nt feel like listening to the loud music. Our accomodation was also very comfortable with settes etc which was more than useful as it rained most of our holiday, but this has not put us off from returning to this marvellous hotel.
Top Local Tips for Torremolinos
Getting Around Public Bus service into Tormellinos was located on the street across from the hotel, and up the block for transport to Malaga. Taxi cabs were not that expensive, but the price must be established before you get in. Take arranged tours to the other cities, such as Corbova, Grenada, Seville. and Gibraltar. Forget Tangiers, dirty, and we were held "captive" while we were taught about carpets.
Aqualand fun especially with kids
Getting around Take the public bus to town. You can catch in front of the hotel.
