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.

good holiday

nice friendly staff, good location for the area. food very good but the resterant was a bit on the small side. facilties ok but again the pool area was small and you have to be up early to get a good spot or you could be in shade for most of your day. Rooms are small but clean and fine if you are on a high floor level. I would return but would have to know wich floor i was on.More



Stayed here beginning of September, having visited twice before. Difficult to find any negatives. Food quality and choice was excellent, always hot and continually replaced. Large selection of desserts including a wide variety of fruit eg. Mango, papaya, fresh figs, melon etc. Rooms were comfortable, beds lovely and spotlessly clean. Towels changed daily and linen every couple of days. Small fridge in room, which helps keep beers cool! Beautiful view from balcony overlooking pool to left and sea, bil bil castle and marina to right.Pool area clean with ample sunbeds, usual queuing by some people to get their favourite spot, but always beds available throughout the day. Pool not huge but adequte for a cooling swim.All staff we met were friendly, efficient and went out of their way to speak to us. Thanks to everyone for helping us to have a wonderful holiday. Looking forward to the 4th visit.More

Another good holiday

Just returned from a second stay at the Las Arenas. We stayed here in 2012. It hasn't changed its still a good place to stay. The staff in this hotel are second to none, in every part of the hotel. Check in was quick and efficient, although room wasn't quite ready it was only a short wait. The dining room staff are excellent nothing is too much trouble. Food is to a good standard and at breakfast coffee is brought to your table a nice touch. The bar staff and cleaning staff are also very good. Position is just across the road from the beach , where you can hire 2 sunbeds and an umbrella for 9euros. plenty of bars and eating places nearby. A pint and Bacardi and bottle of coke was 8euro25 in the hotel bar. Rooms are a bit small but plenty of hanging space and sockets. bathroom good size with power shower. All in all a good hotel and well worth a visitMore

happy holidays

just returned from an 11 day stay at the las arenas cant fault the place at all from reception, cleaners, bar staff and restaurant all 1st class,food was extremely good the only gripe i have is the soup,most of our stay it was vegetable thick thin and see through,it became a joke but if this is the only moan i have it shows what a good place it is. Also the blanket trip lady doesnt like you saying no to the trip which we did and after that when we came out of the life she completely ignored us but never mind. Thank you las arenas for a lovely stay sorry for the little moan but it did not spoil our holiday one but.More
