We stayed at Arenas del Mar for a family vacation with our 9 & 12 yr old kids and they weren't bored! Touch down! The beach is great and there are loads of excursions to choose from. The staff was helpful with the kids, especially Ersel,(guide - ask for him). We even got a few Spanish lessons in there during meals! We were a little worried taking our picky kids to a new country with food other than mac & cheese, but they LOVED the food! We adults loved the seafood and I recommend the Sangria!) The room was large enough for the 4 of us without feeling cramped; very well kept up and the beds were really comfortable (though just being away from the computer might be part of that!?) Overall - great family experience - new culture, new animals, new food. The kids are still talking about it...and we know they learned without it feeling like they were learning. We will be coming back and really recommend it to families who are maybe on edge about bringing their kids to a 5* hotel. It is time well spent with family.
