I chose this hotel because I wanted to be in Arroyo de la Miel (and not on the beachfront, which does not feel much like Spain). The hotel is very basic, but is good value for the price paid. I took a double room to get extra space and it was a good decision. The room was sparsely furnished, but it was adequate. The room was very clean. Wi-fi worked well.
The location is excellent, close to the train station and to many bars and restaurants. Not the best location if you want to be close to the beach, but you can still walk there easily (it's a climb back, though).
On the negative side: the shower is really tiny (not a big issue, though), and it was noisy on my first night there, when some guests came back at night (but no noise during the 3 other nights).
To my knowledge, there are no 3-star (or 4-star) hotels in Arroyo. If there were, I would probably stay there. Otherwise, I would not hesitate to return to Hostal Sol y Miel.
