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.

Excellent Hotel and Staff

We returned from a weeks holiday at this hotel yesterday and would like to give the hotel a great review. The hotel is very clean and tidy and the staff are most helpful going out of their way to help. We holiday end with my son, girlfriend and baby grandson. Whilst at the hotel my grandson hurt himself through nobody's fault but the staff were extremely helpful in getting us a taxi to the local public hospital where he was seen to. We missed our evening meal but on our return was told 4 cold dinners had been left in the dining room for us along with fruit and bottled water. They all went out of there way the following morning to make sure he was fine. Then unfortunately on our final evening our son was taken ill and a member of staff who was leaving drove us to a pharmacy explained the problem and then took us back to the hotel with relevant medication. Unfortunately this did not work and reception rang for a doctor and my son was taken to a private clinic and again dealt with. The following morning again they did everything they could to help us find out what was happening and if my son could fly home. Thankfully he could but we were told his room could be kept on if his girlfriend needed to stay. The food at the hotel is exceptional with a great variety and cannot be faulted. Bar staff, dining room , reception and cleaners all very friendly and helpful. I would definitely return to this hotel and would not hesitate in recommending it highly.More

Lovely Holiday again

We stayed at the Las Arenas for the third time between 20th and 27th November and were very pleased that nothing had changed from previous visits! It is kept wonderfully clean by the seemingly endless cleaning staff, the public areas are immaculate as are the rooms. All the staff are friendly and helpful. The star of the show however has to be the restaurant - the choice and quality are remarkable for the price we paid. Mountains of fresh fruit, beautiful cheese selections, seafood buffet with as many king prawns, mussels and pieces of smoked salmon (especially gorgeous!) as you could eat. We don't eat meat but eat fish and there was always plenty of choice with lots of veg (loved the griddled asparagus and the stir fry) and breakfast was plentiful and very fresh. As for the resort itself it was understandably quiet at this time of year but it is such a lovely walk along the seafront to the marina and onwards - as far as the end of Torremolinas if you're quite fit - that you don't really miss the crowdsMore

good value for your money

Spent a week here 15th Nov-22nd Nov with 4 friends First must say how accommodating this hotel is, i requested that we could be adjacent to our friends having all booked on separate bookings. Our request was dealt with no problems at all rooms next to each other as requested. The first thing i noticed was how friendly and happy the reception staff were on our arrival and had us checked very quickly although the room was not ready this was not a problem as we had time to find our bearings. The restaurant staff were very helpful at meal times and there was quite a variety of food both for breakfast and evening meals.The only criticism would be that we had to pay for our water at evening meal times. The rooms were spotless and the maid service we had was excellent fresh towels daily and bed turned down everyday well done to these unsung heros Entertainment was good and varied each evening although we did not stay in every night. We had a room with a view and while i have read on here the comments about noise at the front of the hotel that only happened during the day i never had a bad nights sleep because of traffic noise.The view on a morning as the sun came up was amazing well worth any noise you might get. This was our first time here and i dont think it will be our last the staff make this hotel and are a credit to the owners.The staff appear to work without any pressure, a well oiled cog i would say. Keep up the good service las arenas and people will returnMore

Wonderful Week At Las Arenas

Have just spent a weeks holiday at this hotel with family and must say we could not fault it. Our group consisted of my husband and myself, our daughter and her husband and three grown up grandchildren We went to celebrate our son-in-laws 50th Birthday. The staff were wonderful and when informed about this they provided a cake with candles which they brought to the dinner table which made it very special for him. All the staff throughout the hotel were very pleasant. The food was excellent and the rooms were kept lovely by the maids. The entertainment was excellent and we had some great nights with the singers even our granddaughters enjoyed most of it.The location of the hotel was very good directly across the road from the beach with a lovely beach bar where we had lunch and drinks at very reasonable prices, 2 euros for a large glass of rose wine. A nice stroll along a lovely promenade to what I can only describe as a beautiful marina with lots of bars shops and restaurants. I understand this to be a very popular hotel with lots of repeat guests and I can see why as we would not hesitate to return ourselvesMore
