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.

Enjoyed our stay
Ideally placed for getting out and about. We had a side sea view room which got the sun in the afternoon. Our room was comfortable and clean. The food was excellent but could have been warmer at breakfast time. The staff work incredibly hard. Evening entertainment was good, Ricky Lavazza and Mica the waitress were the stars of the week. Definitely would recommend staying here on a winter break.More
A welcoming Hotel
We have been to Benalmadena many times but this our first stay at the Las Arenas and we were impressed. We had a seventh floor west facing room which was very comfortable with great views and the whole hotel was very clean and well maintained. The evening entertainment was good and the food was exceptional with a varied choice. The weather was the best we have encountered for March which enhanced our Holiday and we would definitely returnMore
Does what it says on the tin!
Great experience and can't say enough good things about this hotel. We went with another couple for three nights and we were both pleasantly surprised with the value and comfort. Am trying to book for xmas without success at the moment. Receptionist at hotel didn't seem to know availability and gave me a card with the web address and told me to look online (which shows no rooms available for xmas)? Help!More
EXCELLENT SERVICE ALL ROUND
We got a late deal for this hotel and were expecting a decent place based on its good reviews and we were not disappointed. We were initially not happy with our room but the lovely receptionist sorted it out and we moved to a much superior room the next day. Hotel was very clean and tidy and the staff were brilliant, you could tell they were well trained as they constantly cleared up and reset the tables . The food was varied and hot plus freshly made dishes at the buffet. Waiting staff very busy but always professional and polite. The bar prices are dearer than the local bars but happy hour 5 to 6pm was two for the price of one for anything you wanted. Entertainment each night was 6 nights of singers using taped music and the best night was a modern take on traditional Spanish dancing superb. My only nit pick was i wished there was a more variation in entertainment and viewing was difficult at times due to pillars and the stage not raised. Some nights we could hear the music but not see the singer Being March the hotel was mainly elderly Brits but not sure what clientele would be in the summer. There is a nice pool area, local transport yards away and the beach and promenade just across the road. Bus fares were very reasonable and we explored Malaga, the old town of Benalmadena Pueblo in the hills plus other bus trips for about Â£3 each return. Free wifi Overall not a bad base and i recommend this very friendly hotel .More
WELL RUN HOTEL WITH FANTASTIC STAFF
Arrived for a two week stay in March with high expectations of this hotel after reading the reviews and we were 100% satisfied. They excelled in every department, room,food, professional entertainment every night, drinks & bar food all at reasonable prices. The staff in every department were fantastic and so obliging, and very hard working , ( don't want to praise any one member above the rest, however, special mention to MICA, when on bar duty she was so animated and acceptably funny when taking orders for drinks ). Hotel spotless, beds are very firm and comfortable. Excellent outside bar area in a sunny disposition. One thing that really makes this hotel as a lovely place for a holiday, is that every one you meet is so friendly and i think this is because of the lovely atmosphere created by this hotel and it's staff. However, this hotel does seem to cater for and excel with the older generation. The hotel is situated overlooking a busy main dual carriage way road, but the heavy double glazed doors seems to shut out most of the noise when shut. We will return.More
