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.

Another lovely week at Las Arenas
I spent a week at Las Arenas Hotel from10 July 2014 with my sister in law. It is so good to be able to arrive at a familiar hotel and be welcomed by pleasant staff. We were given a room which we had requested by email and as usual nothing is too much trouble for the Las Arenas Staff. Our room was clean and comfortable and cleaned and tidied daily to a high standard. We and various friends/relations have been coming to this hotel for the last 8 or so years for short breaks and the same staff make our stay happy and we have not failed to enjoy our stays at this hotel. The dining room staff are efficient and happy and it is so good to be offered tea or coffee immediately on being seated at breakfast. Far better than queueing at a machine. We always enjoy the selection of food at breakfast and dinner. Happy Hour each day is very pleasant and although the road is close by it never detracts from our enjoyment sitting with other hotel guests in the early evening sunshine. We shall be back again for another break as we know Las Arenas will offer us a happy holiday.More
Nice hotel in a great location
I stayed here with my better half in mid-July this year. I must say that the location of the hotel on the strip is in a great position. Benalmadena itself is a short walk away up the hill behind the hotel and Torremolinos is a long walk or short bus ride away depending on how you'd like to get there. The beach is a stones throw away across the (very busy) road. The Maracas bar on the beach is well worth a trip in the evening to relax. The room we had was nice apart from the view which was of the wall bordering with the pool, if you book here I would advise to request a higher floor than the 1st floor as this was slightly disappointing. On requesting a change the receptionist was not very helpful and suggested asking someone else in the hotel, however most of the rest of the staff we met at reception were very helpful about other matters. The only other problem we had was a grumpy receptionist who remained talking on the phone despite being in the middle of a conversation with us. The pool area is quite nice and the wifi access being beside the pool as well as throughout the hotel was a nice touch. The clientele of the hotel did seem to be of an older generation, probably because the location is a quieter area of the strip. The 24 hour square is only a 20 minute walk away however and is definitely worth a look. The bus stop for the hotel is a small distance away which was slightly cumbersome in carrying our bags to the transfer bus. Overall a nice hotel, but ensure to request a room with a view some time in advance.More

Lovely hotel Las Arenas
My husband and I have just returned from the Las Arenas Hotel and we feel it's time to say a big thank you to all of the staff at this lovely hotel.Our stay was very enjoyable,the rooms being comfortable clean and spacious. The dinning room was very clean,with a wide variety of food both hot and cold which was excellent and staff at hand should you require help. The cleaning staff made sure all areas around the Hotel where kept spotless, reception and bar staff ready to make our holiday a happy one. So may we say thank you once again and we will see you all in November having booked our return trip. Mike and Mary Davies.More
Enjoyable stay in nice Hotel
My wife and I have just returned from a lovely holiday staying here, it is in a great location close to the beach, shops and restaurants. The food was good although we got a bit fed up with the self service, and went out for meals on our last two nights, this is in no way a criticism of the food, just more a change of scenery really. The staff were all very good and friendly, and the rooms were kept clean and were a good size. If I had any criticisms they would be that there is not a pool bar, there is a vending machine for drinks, but for me that is not quite the same as having a pool bar, their was a bit of a smell in the room at times and on the stairs to the pool, and my wife said the hair dryer in the room didn't actually blow it just heated her hair. All in all I would recommend the Hotel for a nice relaxing break. More
Small and Friendly
After popping in to the hotel on a previous visit to Benalmadena, we had a drink or two and stayed for the evening entertainment. We liked what we saw and decided to book a holiday there two weeks from 3rd July '14. Checking out previous reviews, we have to fully agree. The hotel is kept very clean and tidy, the staff work very hard. The room service is brilliant, the room comfortable with part sea view and pool side (room 415) air-con used every day.The Bil-Bil Castle just across the road, morning sun on this side. Full marks to the Dining Room staff too, attentive, friendly and efficient. The buffet style dinner has so much choice and excellent quality. Wi-Fi is available not only around communal area's but in the room too. A most enjoyable stay, I could recommend this hotel to anyone. "I'll be back"More
