Really couldn't fault this hotel, we had a fantastic time. Location - great, a few shops right outside, along with a couple of bars (showing the football) and restaurants and of course the beach. Turn right outside the hotel and there's a lovely walk taking you towards Los Gigantes with some great views. Some lovely (and very reasonable) restaurants along... More

We have just returned from a 10 day holiday at this hotel. On arrival, we were really impressed & the check in process was very smooth & staff friendly. Our room was one of the old ones, that desperately needs to be decorated. I know the hotel is currently being refurbished & it will take time to have them all... More

The best hotel I've ever been. Fantastic food from the different cuisine. But special thanks to entertainment team. Very friendly people in it with smile on their faces . I was crying on my way home. If you are bored during your stay. ......no hope for you - your grave is waiting. .......

A very enjoyable holiday. The staff and facilities are excellent. We went with Jet 2 Holidays for the first time and were very pleased with everything from check in at Manchester until we landed back at Manchester. Thank you Jet 2

Hotel is fine. Very good location, fair quality. Food is also pretty good. There is howerver one major inconvenience: waiters at the bar near reception and terrace. They are unwilling to help, everything is a problem, many times they give you annoying face. I have not had such a bad experience for a long time. Despite all other things being... More

The best word to describe my families experience at the Playa la Arena is Discrimination.. The hotel is nice, very Grand and clean however apart from one or two staff members, unless you happen to be French then they can't be bothered with you or the children Ignoring you in favour of our French cousins.. This includes French only games... More

We visited this hotel in July 2015 and the whole family loved it. The receptionists are very polite, funny and they gave us the warmest welcome! All the workers work very hard to make sure you have a great stay. We were very impressed by the maids and waiters/waitresses. They are all very polite and always say hello! The food... More

We visited this hotel in February 2014 for the 2nd time - 1st visit was June 2011. To be honest I do not like returning to a hotel, as the world is so big & there are many other places/hotels to see, however we returned due to school holidays / inset days so bagged a bargain! It was good value.... More
