Arrived back on the 6th July after a very nice week here. This is a smallish hotel which was full of Germans and Spaniards with only one other English speaking couple, but don't let this put you off unless you desperately need other British company. Our room was on the small side but had everything we needed with a large... More

We left this hotel today after a short stay - British couple with 2 year old girl. Before the stay we were concerned about provisions for our child, such as wanting a cot bed rather than a single adult bed. We sent a note via expedia.co.uk and were reassured that our request was being dealt with with a welcoming reply.... More

Depending on what you want, this seems to be a decent hotel with good value for money. We stayed for two nights in June as part of a bigger group for a wedding, so spent very little time at the pool or in the surrounding areas. The rooms are big enough but the air conditioning was very poor, it barely... More

We stayed at the Hotel in August, 2013. When we arrived early so our room was not ready and we were offered some margaritas by the pool and we could lock our bags.

The hotel was among the cheapest packages offered by Russian travel operators to Arenal, but it turned out quite decent. Clean, in a quiet area, food choice was ok and varied over the week, and the receptionists were very helpful. It's on a hill, so I wouldn't recommend it to people with health problems, but overall it's good value for... More

We stayed in this hotel in the begining of this October. The hotel itself we liked very much, because it is so peaceful and quiet at night - wouldnt believe it in Arenal. Unfortunatly a bit far from the sea. That steep hill "to climb " while returning to the hotel is killing your legs when you stay there longer.... More

We've spend 5 days in the Hotel Alea. We were a bit sceptical before arriving due to the good price and the things heard about the hotels in El Arenal.

This hotel has the nerve to cancel a reservation, 4 days prior to arrival. I can only guess, but a 5 night stay is commercially not interesting enough? By Spanish law, overbooking is a criminal act, and I have already set things in motion to address them to this, as they did not respond to the WHY of the overbooking.... More
