We asked for a room as high as possible and were rewarded with a corner room on the penultimate floor with magnificent views of the sea. The room was large, very clean, spacious bathroom and an extremely comfortable bed with quality sheets.
The level of service was very high from check-in to the servers in the restaurant to the bar staff. They were always very attentive to customer needs and wants, and always willing to chat and give recommendations which proved very accurate.
Clients are also able to use the facilities of the Dorado Hotel which is on the beach front so near to shops and all the local facilities. There is a free shuttle service between the 2 hotels which can be ordered at any time up to 22:00. The Arena Blanca is about a 7 or 8 minute walk from the shops but with the shuttle service you can be right in the main thoroughfare very quickly so the location is not a disadvantage.
The food was excellent as well. Our package was all inclusive so we dined at the hotel most days. The buffet food was plentiful and varied each day and highly nutritious. The fruit drinks were made from fresh fruit and delicious.
This is not a 5 star hotel but it is certainly value for money and we will be back! The only downside - which is not the fault of the hotel - was that two roosters had a singing competition at about 5 or 6 each morning. Still, it got us up so we never needed an alarm clock!!
