All organisations are only as successful as their employees and the El Arena hotel is no exception. You will not be disappointed with the very friendly service and helpful staff; they could not do more to ensure you enjoy your stay.

A small hotel in the city, but not in the centre, therefore more quiet. Quite good location, not too far away from the beach. Not good for pool lovers, as the pool is rather small. Very friendly and helpful staff. Nice rooms with effective air-con. Good dinners, breakfasts rather monotonous. Overall, good value for money.

The hotel is magnificent, staff is friendly and helpful. The food is exquisite, can satisfy every taste. Don't judge hotel by bad comments, it depends on people who have come on holidays with a bad mood. So it's definitely worth visiting if u want to get the best ratio of price and quality.

A honest review from a English couple in their 20's. Hotel rooms basic but very clean with everything you need as don't spend much time in the room anyway. Food was lovely plenty of variety even for a fussy eater like my partner. Pool area mainly in the shade until the afternoon but nice to relax after a morning out.... More
