panilipiec :  I can’t help with Alicante specifically, but I’ve been to Spain quite a few times (a dozen or so), staying mainly in either the Costa del Sol or the Costa Brava. I’ve not been late October, but have been late September and also early Feb, as well as early as April. The weather late October is likely to be variable, and is hard to predict; we had better weather in Feb than I’ve had in April, as there was a heat wave. I would expect highs of around 18-20 if you’re lucky, and would pack for a range of weather; at night temperatures can dip, especially on the coast, so definitely bring a jacket (in Feb it was up to 23 during the day, but around 5-6 and very cold comparatively at night). 

I’d recommend checking out Trip Advisor, as the members there will be very knowledgeable and helpful. You can also use it to check out things to do/bars/restaurants etc. In late October some places will be closed or will close early, so also bear that in mind; if there is a certain restaurant you really want to visit it might be worth checking their hours with them in advance. 

HTH!

panilipiec :  I’ve never been, but it’s on my bucket list to travel throughout Spain, especially the Mediterranean coast! I’m sure it will be lovely πŸ™‚

We’ll fly to Alicante next week and stay in an AirBnB flat close to the sea (not our honeymoon). Can’t wait πŸ™‚

It’s a nice place, but I am not sure it’s worth spending an entire week there. I was there for a two-day conference, so I didn’t have much time for sight-seeing, but apparently apart from a medieval castle there isn’t really much to see. We were in a hotel right at the beach and the sea is very nice. The downtown is pleasant and we had great food. However, I’ve had much better experience elsewhere in Spain: Barcelona, Granada, Seville, Madrid and even Malaga (in that order).
