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 restaurant staff

just spent 2 wks. at the las arenas half board with my husband and 21mth old twins and it was really good although not on par with other 4 stars I've stayed at. The food at the restaurant was great breakfast was the usual assortment plenty of choice and the same for dinner they had something different every day and they was constantly bringing out more freshly cooked. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. the location was brilliant nice walkway along the front all the way to the lovely harbour lined with nice restaurants. had a studio apartment which was cleaned everyday nice bathroom with bath and shower comfy beds the room was just a little small specially with 2 cots in can't really comment on facilities as only used the toddler pool once which was a bit cold and the bar twice which was nice. also there is a lovely big park a short walk round the back of the hotel nice change from the beach if you have young kids. If you like to get out and about there's a few nice trips to do either through your travel rep or nearby excursion company for example Gibraltar, the cable car Marbella and Puerto banos and plenty more to choose from.More

Benalmadena break

We have been to Benalmadena many times and this hotel is probably the best one we have stayed in? It is very well situated and close to the beach . Food was excellent, buffet style but everything you could wish for. Every fruit you can think of and plenty of it, constantly refilled by the hardworking very pleasant restaurant and kitchen staff. Rooms comfortable and cleaned every day to a high standard (floor mopped every day) clean sheets and towels as required. Small fridge in the room was good so able to keep cold drinks at no extra charge. Pool area is a little small and half was shaded in the afternoon...but we will definitely stay at this hotel again and recommend to friends.More

Good to stay fora weeks holiday

Stayed there for a week in August First of all Food is great..if you book half or full board. First time in Spanish hotel I have to say it was really good. It was a buffet style but trays were never empty always full of food. The choice was amazing and very tasty..Restaurant staff especially lady MIKI were fab.Very clean restaurant spotless.Bedrooms were ok too small for me but nice and clean..airconditioning didn't work in our bedroom.Hotel doesn't look good from the outside but looks good from the inside. Great outside area for coffee or drink...Drinks prices were really good same as the supermarket so go for 1,50E ,beer 1,80E..reception ok helpful. Swimming pool area was small swimming pool very very small.Good thing not alot of children so you actually can relax. would recomend it and would go back for sureMore

40th wedding anniversary

This was our 6th visit to Las Arenas and we simply cannot find fault with the hotel or the staff. We were greeted back as old friends, the room was lovely, the staff friendly, food nice, fresh and varied. We are already planning to visit again in May 2015. We stayed in May 2014, apologies for the late posting.More
