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.

Las arenas hotel
Really good trip to Benalmadena. Hotel was very good. Very clean. Friendly staff. Great room 506, Hugh balacony front and side, fabulous sea view with side view off pool. We stayed half board which took a bit of getting used too, but very worth while as food was really good. Hotel is situated straight across from beach, which has a great beach bar called Marricus- food and drinks really good. From hotel walk out to the right, cross the road and stroll along the beach front, stopping to shop and have drinks until you get to the beautiful marina - a lovely spot to shop, have food and drinks and people watch. The walk in the evening is fabulous if you get a clear night the moon is fantastic. Would stay again at Las Arenas. More

Lovely and traquil
We have just returned home from a lovely 10 day holiday at this hotel and couldn't be any happier. From entering the hotel to leaving we had very polite, very helpful and very happy staff. Nothing was any bother to them. We have never gone half board before but the food was gorgeous and very varied we never got bored because there was just a large selection of different foods to try. The rooms were cleaned daily. Pool is large enough without feeling overcrowded. We didn't have any problems getting a sunbed. Thank you so much Las Arenas for making our first half board experience so lovely with such wonderful staff. Mica is hilarious when the evening entertainment is on she is such a good sport while serving. Her energy and personality are second to none. all the staff are brilliantMore
A haven of tranquility
Just got back from 9 great days at Las Arenas. I usually think that if something is too good to be true it will be. The reviews for Las Arenas waxed Lyrically about the food the staff etc,so we took the bull by the horns and off we popped to this hotel that sounded too good to be true. We arrived at noon and Eva on reception informed us our room was ready,which is unusual in most instances. We had a room overlooking the pool with nice sea views,we asked Eva if we didn't t like the room could we move .No problem. Benalmedina is a fine resort much bigger than we thought having looked at it last year ,we thought it stopped T the Marina. It stretched for another couple of miles of beautiful beaches bars etc, and spotless. Our first meal was an eye opener ,but I thought the dining room not what I expected and rather cramped. The choice superb soup bread to die for a range of salads that were adequate but not exciting. That were my two main critiscisms the rest was pure delight. The breakfast a trip down memory And fried bread black pudding you name it. When people talk of which team is the best in SpainReal or Barca I say to them you need to visit Las Arenas they are the best team in Spain. Thank you to all who made this such a fab holiday. God bless you. Tony Weedon and Alwyn More
Had a week here in March and was so impressed returned this month with my husband. The staff make this hotel what it is - all very friendly and helpful. The food is excellent, tremendous choice to suit all tastes, although sometimes a queue would develop at busy times - hopefully the planned renovation will address this by separating the starters counter from the mains which seems to be the cause of the problem. Restaurant is buffet style and although there is hand sanitiser at the entrance to the dining room no one uses it which is rather worrying. Bedrooms and bathroom are fine. Entertainment was very professional and excellent on 6 of our 7 night stay.More
