Hotel's Favourite
Just back from a ten day stay at Las Arenas. My wife and I totally enjoyed our stay at Las Arenas a very relaxed holiday. We stayed in room 306 front facing views of the seafront and side views of the pool. The hotel is cleaned around the clock to a very high standard .We stayed half board breakfast & evening meal. The breakfast had a good variety hot & cold foods. The evening meal had a good variety of food on display, salads, fish, meats, stir fries, deserts and cheese boards. The Sky bar is excellent, great views of the surrounding area. Happy hour 5-6 on the ground floor bar and pool bar is great value. The best thing about Las Arenas is its staff, from reception, dinning, bar and cleaning staff they are so nice, happy and great at their jobs which made our stay so special. Its a pity there was only entrainment on for three nights of our ten day stay, I think this was because of lower numbers staying at the hotel. Las Arenas is probably the best hotel we have stayed in the Costa Del Sol.

Recently returned from a week at this hotel. We paid extra to have a front room sea view and it was definitely worth it. The room was large and cleaned to a high standard. Tea/coffee making facilities replenished daily. Always hot water and robes available too. We stayed B&B and the breakfasts were great too. The pool is a bit cool but not a problem once you're in, we never had a problem finding a sunbed, altho some of them lose the sun about 4-30 when the sun moves behind the side of the hotel, Wi-fi good in all areas of the hotel. Its about 1 -2 miles from the marina but I think the hotel is in a nicer area on Bill-Bill beach. The staff were always friendly and helpful. Rooftop bar a nice idea for pre dinner drinks watching the sun set. Would be happy to stay here again if I returned. Air con worked well but a bit noisy on full so we turned the fan down a bit and it was no longer a problem

From check in to check this was a great holiday. Flights were good and on time. The Belvedere Resort and campsite in Croatia was a lovely place. Had my reservations about it when we first checked in but once we looked round and found out how things were and what was happening it turned into a lovely week.

Just returned from our second trip to this lovely clean well run hotel. From the minute we arrived until our departure on Friday 30th September the staff were fantastic. We even met the owners who were very friendly too. We paid for a superior suite room 506 and it was very good. Full Seaview so we could watch sunrise and sunset each day. The food was excellent throughout our stay. Great variety on offer for all tastes. Breakfast included fresh orange juice,porridge, omelettes and pancakes all freshly made. And full english too, with lovely bread rolls. Evening meals had lovely soup each day and various salads. At least six hot food options daily including paella, roast beef and stir fry. Plus pasta options too. The hotel attracts many return guests due to its location and because of the high standards on offer. We will be returning twice again next year.

Every staff member from cleaning staff to general manager had a smile on their faces very polite and cheerful. The hotel was immaculate and the food (buffet style) superb, with a great choice of everything you can think of. Situated ideally for walks or bus rides to local amenities. Safe, and very relaxing atmosphere. Entertainment every night and a happy hour to in the bar. We’ll definitely be coming back to this hotel

Stayed here September for a week bed and breakfast. Spotlessly clean hotel with friendly helpful staff. The quality of the breakfast was excellent with plenty of choice. The hotel is in a decent location with plenty of bars and restaurants close by. There is also a roof top bar worth a visit with nice views of the resort.

Our Third visit to Las Arenas and again another great stay. We had emailed the hotel in advance requesting a room on a high floor, we received a response stating that they would try to accommodate our request but could not guarantee it. However after a friendly and quick check in we were assigned a room on the 6th floor overlooking the pool. The room was clean, beds comfortable, air conditioned, hot water available at all times, everything that we wanted. We took a travel kettle as they are not provided in the rooms. Food at breakfast and dinner was generally to a good standard and the restaurant staff were extremely efficient, always smiling and are a real credit to the hotel ! Pool area and bar are kept clean (Its amusing to watch the scramble for sunbeds at 9am but there were always enough for everyone) The hotel is located close to the beach and on main bus routes if you want to travel further afield. I would highly recommend Las Arenas and will return for another stay without doubt!

Fantastic holiday at Las Arenas Benalmadena. On arrival we we given a room that had the sun all day on balcony. Fantastic for some people but for us not so good. We like to relax in the afternoon and perhaps read or admire the view. (not sun worshipers). We immediately asked if we could be allocated another more suitable room. Unfortunately none were available but we were told that a room would be available the next morning. We unpacked the basics and at 10.30 the next morning we were given exactly what we requested which made a big difference to our enjoyment during our stay. The staff on reception were so pleasant and accommodating and didn't make a fuss about moving us. Hotel was immaculately clean and food was plentiful and delicious. All the staff on every level were extremely friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Thank you all so much for your attention to guests. Also close proximity to public was a big bonus.
