“Good value for money - close to the beach”
Reviewed June 18, 2014

The hotel is under new management from May 2014. I was a solo traveller and the owner gave me the opportunity to move to a bigger room overlooking the road and the swimming pool. Even the smaller room had a double bed. Rooms in the back are quieter (no road and no hotel guests drinking -and talking- in the porch). Clean rooms. Free wi-fi in the lobby. Short walk to the beach and close to Puerto Marina. Supermarket next door, bus stop, restaurants and pubs nearby. Mainly foreign guests. Very friendly, helpful staff. My stay was accommodation only. The hotel met my main needs (budget, location, cleanliness) and more, with the swimming pool.

Room Tip: Rooms in the back are quieter (no road, no guests sitting outside) Rooms in the front have a view t...

We returned back from this lovely hotel on the 19th May after a weeks stay. We arrived late but we greeted with a smile from Ana and shown to our room. Great large bed absolutely clean, large balcony. As we have visited Carihuela many times ( first time at this hotel ) we walked the 5 minutes walk down to the beach side and had a very enjoyable meal although it was now well past 11.pm. The following morning the new owner Victor informed us that the swimming pool was out of action, being revamped, as they had had a leek and no option but to put the pool out of action. We were told we would be welcome to use the swimming pool of the hotel down the road, 2 minutes walk away. Our room had a very large sunny balcony and we had good weather for most of the week. We enjoyed the balcony although it was road side, and the short walk down to a tapas bar for lunch....2 minutes walk from the Arcos, on the same road. The drain outside was only heard on the first night....never stopped us from sleeping in the great big comfortable bed. The breakfasts were good, plenty of choice. The evening meals were fine, we were half board, and ate there most nights. Tony was there to attentively serve us with good wine. We were told that the bar closed at 21.00. However, when we arrived back to the hotel late evening we were served a drink whilst chatting with fellow guests. The reception and bar have comfortable seating. Ana and Victor did their best to accommodate everyone.....sometimes someone would be checking in late which meant that if you wanted a drink you had to wait a minute or two.....unfortunately this did not please some of the guests. I did not like to hear their comments when the staff were doing their best. Indeed on our first morning we went in to breakfast and my husband whilst at the coffee machine was wished "good luck"???? As previously stated this hotel is in a great position, buses, beach within 5 minutes, supermarket for good wine, ( there are fridges in the rooms for a very small fee ) ours worked fine. They say "you get what you pay for" we certainly did, and more. This hotel is a Spanish hotel with a Spanish feel, some of the guests in my opinion should have accepted this. There were many nationalities in the hotel during our weeks stay. We went home with a farewell from Ana and a new member of staff after a great holiday. Thank you so much Victor, Ana, Tony, the girls who cleaned our room excellently, and all the members of the staff at the Arcos. Did we have a downside to our holiday, maybe.....the professional grumblers....British.
We will see you in September, Arcos de Montemar. all the best to you all.

It's a small and cozy hotel, very clean with nice service! It's situated near the sea, the train station is 5 minutes walk from the hotel. The funicular is on the next station from the hotel. The place is very picturesque, lots of plants, even if the windows of your room does not face the sea, great backyard will surprise you, on the trees in the morning you can see a lot of green parrots!

This hotel is very central, easy to reach beach, excellent for buses. Staff are friendly, everywhere is basic and clean, food is very nicely prepared and cooked, although not too much variety, but value for money! We really enjoyed our holiday there!

I arrived very late, tired, pregnant and with 2 grizzly tots & stressy grumpy partner in tow. Not the best start but hotel owner was calm and courteous helping with luggage. They opened the dining area as had saved us food. This kind and helpful attitude continued throughout holiday. Food was ok, and we enjoyed a varied breakfast with lovely cappuchino from coffee machine every morning. Evening meal was fine, help yourself, good value for money. Room basic but clean. Cleaning service provided every day while you're out. Comfortable pool area and clean pool but I found it quite cold even for unusually hot weather in April. I went in to cool off a few times as did partner and son but 3 year old girl wasn't having any of it! The staff were so sweet with the kids even though they were on a bit of a mad one! Would definitely visit again and would recommend. oh yeah and beds sooo comfy although to be honest I was so tired probably could have slept on a brick!
