Lovely Hotel in a great location

The hotel has recently been updated and is now a really lovely place to stay in Benalmadena, the pool and surrounding areas are great but it's just across the road from the beach if that's your preferred option. Huge choice at breakfast and dinner - all very well presented. Staff are very friendly and helpful - we'll be back next year.

Excellent, as always

Our 4th winter visit to this hotel. This really is one of my favourite hotels. You cannot fault anything at all. The selection of food is very good as well as its high quality. All staff are happy and work well to offer you the best service. The hotel is opposite the beach, close to Paloma Park and close to bus stops.

Lovely hotel, right on the beach front

We had a lovely stay at Las Arenas. The hotel was right on the beach, a 20 minute walk down the hill from the train station and very close to the restful Parc de la Paloma. We had a corner room on the 6th floor which had a huge terrace on two sides of it, and our own sun loungers. As we were there in Feb, it was a bit nippy for sunbathing, but it was great to sit outside with a face on view of the sea and read in the afternoon sunshine. The downside of this was that we didn’t have the big doors that others had, so the room was a bit dark. Nice though, and very clean. There was a good TV in the room, with a selection of English speaking channels, if you just want to flob out for a couple of hours. The food was great, good choice, especially as this was a smaller hotel than others we've stayed in, and always freshly prepared throughout the mealtime. The service was friendly and unobtrusive.

The best thing about my stay was...

The view from the terrace

Excellent hotel near beach

Excellent hotel with helpful staff. Advertise as adult only but some children there which was disappointing. Food very good although desserts could have been better. Rooms cleaned everyday with fresh towels. Entertainment poor and clearly catered for much older clientele. Drinks expensive. However would book again. Sky bar superb but needs more parasols as it gets VERY hot on roof.

The best thing about my stay was...

Food is very good however desserts could be a little better.
