Hotel Las Arenas  

This sea-view hotel has a beach across the road and a pool back at base. The restaurant puts on a good buffet, too.

Las Arenas is just across the road from Bil Bil Beach, so it gets sweeping views of the Med. It has its own pool, too, plus a buffet restaurant and a lounge bar with live entertainment.

Benalmadena town starts just behind the hotel, and there are shops, bars and restaurants on the doorstep. There’s also a pretty promenade that runs all the way through a marina to Torremolinos.

Fantastic stay at las arenas!

I stayed here for 11 nights with my husband from 10/10/14 until 21/10/14. The hotel is clean and in an excellent location just across the road from the beach and the promenade, it's a 15 min walk to the marina, longer if you stop off at all the lovely bars on the way! We were on the 6th floor in room 603 and had fantastic views, the sunrise was amazing! The wifi is free and was a good conection. We are a married couple who are 26 years old and we found that this hotel was a little mature for us and I would recommend it to people over 50. The food was excellent!!! Fantastic choice and fantastic staff in the resteraunt. All round staff are fantastic, rooms were cleaned early every day as soon as we vacated which was great as I like a nap in the afternoon. Some exercise equipment would have been nice, a x trainer and some weights, there is a man who does areobocs in the morning but that's not my cup of tea! Overall a lovely hotel, it was just a little bit to old for me, however if I was traveling with my grandmother I would return as it's very accessible and in a good location. Happy hour very good value for money!More

All areas of ths hotel spotless. Management should be very proud of all their hard working staff, who always had a smile for you. Only downside for my husband and myself was in the dinning room , sometimes a little chaotic with people queing from the salad bar to the hot meals. Meals were of excellent quality and very well displayed so compliments to the chefs and their assistants. Plenty to choose from and as a fish lover always several dishes to choose from. Waiting staff very pleasent and always cleared tables quickley as well as remembering our drinks order each evening. Hotel situated near bus stops, Paloma Park, restaraunts and bars. Directley behind the hotel is a small supermarket. Never a problem with sunbeds and as some clientel point out road noise can be heard when relaxing away from the pool. We had a lovely room on the 6th floor which meant we had the afternoon sun. I would also like to thank management as emailed ahead and asked for a room with a high floor and afternoon sun. This hotel has many repeat customers and so the clientel are mostley over 55 years.( Not a hotel for children ) We enjoyed our stay apart from the queing for the evening meals. Perhaps management could review the situation from just having one sitting and split the evening meal into two sittings.( I would reccomend this hotel)More

This hotel is very clean - all public areas, bedrooms and pool areas - cleaning and maintenance is excelent. Food selection is very good- there is something for everyone at all meals - staff on hand to make fresh omlettes of your choice. Fruit juice is not fresh - extremely sweet, tea/coffee served to your table at breakfast. Bar prices are reasonable. The staff are the key asset of this hotel - pleasant, friendly, helpful - apart from younger female receptionist who couldn't care. TV's in the rooms, plenty of toiletries provided, clean towels every day, mini fridge and air con free of charge in rooms too. The hotel is certainly accommodating the 'older' guest - there were only 4 or 5 families staying when we were there. There was no nonsense of any kind, with the older guests certainly being friendly and chatty with the kids. The entertainment being mainly singers - they were good - if not quite our cup of tea. On the downside - the pool area is completely shaded by 4pm, the noise from the road is awful and goes on all night - we asked for a move and the great guy on reception organised this for us - however this couldn't be done until our 4th day so had terrible sleeps for first 3 nights. Suggest when you book you request a room to the side/rear of the hotel. Overall excellent value for money and well situated opposite the beach but close enough to some small bars/restaurants and bus stops. I would suggest the hotel puts a kettle and cups etc into the rooms - we took our travel kettle as knew the hotel didn't provide them.More

Enjoyable stay!

Stayed 3rd week in October. Hotel is good and spotlessly clean. Room on 5th floor poolside and only noise we heard was bin men early one morning. Used beach across the road most days as prefer sea to pools although pool area is nice and cleaned daily. Breakfasts were probably the best we have had at any hotel with so much choice from full English to fruit and savoury cakes/buns. The evening meals were a touch bland for our tastes so ate out 3 nights after having a look at what was on offer. Entertainment is geared for the age of the clientele so went out every night as it was not our sort of music. Happy hour runs from five till six and is good value. Had a good deal for the holiday so would stay again for out of season break. Can recommend Bar 76 for lunches and meals as food really tasty and cheap drinks until 6.30pm.(out of hotel and turn right - 100m). Overall a great holiday at Las Arenas.More

Excellent hotel

Just returned a week's break at the Las Arenas. We asked for a room on the opposite side to the pool and got it. Food was exceptional, lots of variety and nice and hot. Hotel is one of the cleanest we have stayed in. As per all other reviews the staff are really friendly and helpful. I agree with others, it's a shame the sun goes off the pool early afternoon. Enjoyed the happy hour between 5.00pm - 6.00pm nice surprise! Would definitely recommend this hotel.More
