If you already own the Hotel Castillo as a player house, then simply head back home and you'll be at the right location.

You need to find the Hotel Mirador Balderrama for this week's Photo Challenge. #AplineRetreat tasks you with snapping any Alpine at either the Hotel Castillo or the Hotel Mirador Baldarrama.

It's highly unusual to have a Photo Challenge that requires you to find two locations, but it's good to see Forza Horizon mixing things up. Once you've selected which Alpine to use, head to the map and pick a hotel to stay in.

Pull up outside the hotel, whip out the camera, and snap away. Completing the #AlpineRetreat Photo Challenge will reward you with the Sleigh Bells horn for your cars.
