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.

Simply The Best

We have just returned after a seven-night stay at Las Arenas. We emailed beforehand to request a “high” room on the west side (originally I specified east by mistake but was able to correct my mistake with a further email – no trouble at all) and we were delighted that our request had been honored. We have stayed at this hotel before but last November we tried another hotel that had been refurbished – it was very modern, superb terraces and swimming pool etc. However, despite the modernization, it just did not have the same lovely, friendly atmosphere that Las Arenas has. Food, as ever well cooked, great variety and dining room staff so very well presented and helpful. An added bonus was free WI-Fi in our room. Only one complaint – Ricky Lavazza (great singer/entertainer) was away for the week that we were there. However, we had a rare treat from Juan (entertainment manager) – he sang Imagine – great voice Juan! Mustn’t forget the Thomson rep Mario – so cheerful and helpful, made check in at the hotel a breeze. We will be back later on this year.More

My second stay at this hotel.....

I have just returned from a five night stay at this hotel. I previously stayed here three years ago and this time found everything just as perfect as on my first visit. The position of the hotel couldn't be better. The staff are amazing so friendly and helpful. The food is excellent and plenty choice. The evening entertainment is nightly and of a high standard. I was traveling on my own this time but felt very at ease in the hotel.More

March Break - Room with a view

What a joy to be welcomed by all of the staff on our arrival on Tuesday 10th March, the Thomson sponsored coach arrived at the front of the Hotel and as was greeted by a member of staff who was willing to assist the full coach load of people into the reception area for a swift check in process. Totally impressed by the efficient management in which all of the people arriving where dealt with. Far superior to the Thomson check in at Manchester airport experienced at 05:15 earlier that morning. This impressionable service was to last throughout our 7 day break, not only from the reception staff, but all of the staff at the Las Arenas, well done to you all . A joy to be served and greeted by courteous staff throughout the hotel. Excellent service, with very good range of food being presented and served in the restaurant, Quality drinks and snacks at reasonable prices from the bar.More
