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 Hotel situated in great area

I have stayed in numerous hotels and apartments in Benalmadena and think this hotel is one of the best! Situated on a main road which can be noisy with traffic but this didn't put me off in the slightest even sitting outside on the terrace the noise didn't annoy me. Seaview is amazing! I went with my parents and my daughter of 15. This hotel is aimed at the older market, not much for kids to do although McDonalds and mini golf are very close by. My parents loved It's location as my mum has COPD which impacts her breathing and the Las Arenas was in an ideal spot for walking as all on the flat. If we wanted to go to Arroyo we just jumped in a taxi, 6 euros. The food was superb, couldn't fault it and wine was reasonable at €2:10 a glass or just over €8 a bottle although spirits were quite expensive. My father was drinking Morgan's and Coke and it was €6:30 a drink although happy hour is on every day from 5-6pm. Maids done a fantastic job, the place was spotless. I had a room on 5th floor facing Fuengirola to get the sun all evening and my parents were on the front with superb sea views. Seaview Room was great size which included another bedroom (family room). Air con had a quiet mode too which didn't interrupt your sleep. Overall great hotel, I would highly recommend 😎More

Jackie M,

Well satisfied with my weeks holiday

I arrived at hotel at noon, having been "on the go" all night. I was very pleasantly surprised that my room was ready and although there was quite a queue at reception, the staff were amazing. The room, although smaller than I would have liked, was immaculate, plenty of toiletries and a free fridge. The cleanliness was well maintained each day. The dining room was pleasant with an excellent choice of food, show cooking and staff, who couldn't do enough for you. I was delighted with the Spanish lessons, the musical quizzes and the bingo. The evening entertainment was also good and very pleasing to the guests, who were largely over 50. There was also a wide range of snacks available in the bar, at a reasonable price, drinks were reasonable too. The hotel is separated from the sea front by a road, and there is an excellent maritime walk right to Benalmadena Marina and beyond. Bus stops are close to hotel, and cost of travel very very cheap. I hope to return to Las Arenas, it is certainly extremely good value for money.More

Lucky us!

What a find this hotel was for us, friendly hard working staff, spotlessly clean, good food choice, fair bar prices enjoyed red house wine 8.5euros a bottle. Happy hour cocktails about 5euros for the 2 drinks. At busy times may have to wait to get a table in restaurant but due to the efficiency of the staff this wait was never long and well worth it. Food was of a good standard we especially enjoyed the seafood table, massive juicy prawns have never tasted any elsewhere so delicious. We had a room 704 on the top floor with afternoon sunshine perfect for us. Powerful over bath shower, toiletries replenished, tv with bbc & itv was great, free wi fi. Fridge in room was a bonus for us, bought water and drinks from garage shop, turn left out of hotel very reasonably priced and not far to carry them back to hotel. Used the local buses, regular bus service and economical way to see nearby places. Mijas is a must, renovation work at moment but we throughly enjoyed our visit. Ask for bus timetable from the lovely reception staff. Last but not least the nightly entertainment, we so enjoyed Ricky Lavazza, Monday & Thursday not only is he an excellent singer & entertainer he is an extremely caring person. There was a singer six nights and flamenco the other. A huge thank you to all the staff who made our 1st holiday at Las Arenas so enjoyable. We'll be back!More

Love this hotel

Just returned form our second visit to Las Arenas and had a great time. The hotel is spotlessly clean and the food choice is excellent. We had a room on the 6th floor to the front of the hotel with a large terrace and spectacular views all along the coast. The evening entertainment is very good and in relaxing surroundings. Hope to be back there soon.More
