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 value hotel

We have just come back from 11 nights at this hotel and we had a lovely time. Our room was on the 7th floor and we had a good side view of the sea. It was spacious and clean with white bed linen. The food was excellent and the buffet was replenished frequently. Every evening there was freshly made stir fry and griddled meats. The fruits and salads were excellent and varied. The staff was friendly, efficient and cheerful despite working so hard in the heat. The pool area was OK, but it looks a little tired. The ladders into the pool were a bit rickety and the steps were worn and slippery. The entertainment was variable but the Flamenco dancers were excellent. The hotel is on the main road and can be noisy at the front. We used the frequent bus service to visit other resorts and the Butterfly Farm. We would recommend this hotel, particularly for adults.More

Good Hotel for adults

This is a good hotel for adults very clean quiet at nights good food good entertainment and very nice staff.The hotel is situated on a busy main road hence some road noise, but it has the advantage of being right on the beach and there are plenty of good restaraunts nearby should you wish to use them. The only bad point is that the pool area is not very big and not enough sunbeds, the usual towel rush in the morning is well controlled by the staff and any towels left on sunbeds and not used for any length of time are removed.More

Clean basic Hotel

I stayed for just a week and found the Hotel ok not a 4star though. The Hotel is dated in parts, our room was ok on the 5th floor lovely views and air con, but it continued to blow out black bits all the time! Food is adequate, and always replaced with fresh. enjoyed the roast meats and the Lamb was delicious. Toasters as usual useless. Watched the British at 9am all rushing with towels to reserve the beds, what,s new? All gone at 9.01. Notice saying no reserve beds a joke. Pool area very small and pool needs updating, needs a walk in point not those old fashioned steps with dodgy handles. Lovely location buses handy, lovely park behind Hotel. Staff very friendly and had a smile for you.More

Genuinely friendly , lovely hotel easy to recommend

Arrived room clean, flat screen TV, small fridge, safe ( 17 euros for 1 week ) air con ( which is not the best you have to have on maximum/ lowest temp setting to feel the benefit) plenty of storage space comfy bed, free WI-FI which was excellent. Firstly what stands out about this hotel is how friendly all the staff are which make this a wonderful hotel to stay at . Cannot fault the quality of the food, good variety always on offer, meat , fish , fresh pasta etc all well-cooked & tasty, excellent service in the restaurant waiters professional & helpful Happy hour every day between 1700 – 1800 great value buy 1 drink get 1 free on all drinks . Maids do an excellent jobs room always spotless after a day on the beach . Nightly entertainment is a singer comedian/ dancers etc .. The hotel is opposite the beach on quite a busy coastal road , the beach is sandy 2 sunbeds & a shade 9E, as you enter the sea It can be quite rocky so be careful. From the hotel turn left cross the road along the beach 2 minutes away is a lovely promenade with bars & restaurants great atmosphere in the evening where all the locals eat especially at the weekend . Enjoyed the cable car 15 minutes to the top of mountain great views . I would point out there are a few young couples & family’s but generally the clientele are 50+ ,If you are thinking of staying at this resort and want a quiet , friendly, well run hotel it is easy to recommend the Las ArenusMore
