“Good value.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

Had a short 4 night break here in early January.

I would have to agree with a lot of the previous reviews and compliment the staff. Very helpful and friendly.

The room was nice and spacious and well appointed. A fridge was included which we weren't expecting. Cleaners are in everyday and towels changed as and when you need them changing. There's a hair dryer in the bathroom as well.

The facilities are decent enough. There's a sauna, gym and squash court but I think you have to pay extra for their use.

The food and drink is average and would probably please most people. I thought there could have been a bit more choice but it's relevant to the value. I enjoyed the fish and salads. The beer, wine and sangria weren't bad either.

The hotel is situated on the very edge of the resort, a good 20-30 minute walk into town but there's supermarkets nearby. There's a beach about 10 mins walk away which is nice and the Corralejo national park is over the road which is basically miles and miles of sand dunes. Very picturesque. I enjoyed a walk there and felt like I was in the middle of nowhere at times, even coming across some grazing goats.

If you want a quiet, good value break then this will probably suit you.

Well done to the hotel staff who make the place what it is.

Stayed for a week over Christmas and had a lovely and relaxing time at Hotel Arena! The hotel was great, very clean as were the rooms, and the service and friendliness of the staff was second to none, all worked extremely hard and made it a great stay. Location is about 15 mins walk into the town, a taxi costs around 4 euros. There is a lovely secluded beach 5/10 min walk from the hotel. Wouldn't normally go all inclusive but found the food nice, always plenty of options. Entertainment was ok, had a couple of good acts, after bingo had finished! Would go back and would also recommend if you're looking for somewhere quiet and don't mind staying outside of the main strip. We have been going to Fuerteventura for a few years and love the island, there are some lovely restaurants and bars near the harbour and a great chill out bar called on the beach! All in all, a great holiday!

We spent a week in the Hotel Arena end of December '13. We have been to Fuerteventura 7 times in the last 5 years and no accomodation could match this. Our stay was fantastic. All the staff were brilliant, really friendly and very obliging. Hotel itself is spotless as is the pool area, bars and restaurants. Food and entertainment top class. Well worth a visit and we will definately return!!!!

Room Tip: Suites were excellently positioned - right beside pool!!!!

Very good staff and clean rooms, thats what highlights the place. There is also a good selection of food. Hotel looks a bit dated and there is not much entertainment provided. You need to pay extra for lots of things (internet, pool, towels etc). Unfortunately there are no views and about 15min walk to the beach but for the price we paid in a high season it was worth it anyway. More like a 3* Hotel outdoor space and 4* rooms.

My husband and i wanted a short break away to relax and chill out so we returned to hotel Arena last month. It was the same as it was in 2012, lovely, quiet, clean resort, good food and fabulous staff. The reservation staff kindly fulfilled our request of a room on the second floor. The room was kept clean daily and then when we asked for additional blankets it was not too much trouble and they were delivered with a smile. Alvero, joel and nico (lifeguard) went above and beyond in making our staff relaxing and fun. We will be back im sure and would recommend this hotel to stay at. If you decide to eat out, casa manola just off the main high street is worth a visit, we have been before - theres something about eating drinking and having a thoroughly enjoyable meal then being waved off by the staff and chefs, you dont get that in the UK!!! Thank you to all the staff at Hotel Arena for another lovely holiday.

We first visited this hotel 8 years ago when it was not a all inclusive. We returned in October 2013 with our 2 children in there 20's, who enjoyed it and had a wonderful week.. We decided to come back on our own for New Year and were not disappointed. We had a wonderful time. The hotel is spotless each member of staff is helpful, polite and nothing is too much trouble.
The rooms are spotless. The food was great at breakfast and dinner but there are so many fantastic places to eat in town at night that it is a shame to miss out.
It takes 15-20 minutes to walk into the centre of Corralejo. The beach is a must and it takes 15-20 minutes to walk there.
We will be going back this year

Room Tip: Ask for block 300 as you get the sun all day

The Hotel has recently been refurbished. Our room on the third / top floor of one wing overlooked the pool. It was very clean and had all the facilities expected of a 4 star hotel. The self service restaurant served good and well presented food, our only complaint being it was sometimes not as hot as it should be and lacked variety. Overall however the hotel was good value. It was a good 15 minutes walk to the resort itself and the use of taxis at 4euros was often resorted to.
