“A little Gem of a Hotel”
Reviewed July 16, 2014

Great location right on the front with a good variety of bars and restaurants right on your doorstep.The beach is right across the road and the buses are handy for visiting plenty touristy places.The hotel itself is spotless with lovely and friendly staff who have been there for many years.Food is varied and of great quality.I go twice a year and have been doing so for many years.I hope my review helps yet i would be distraught if it was fully booked before my next scheduled return.

Room Tip: If you like the sun later in the day ask for a room facing Fuengirola otherwise ask for a pool room.

We normally enjoy Thomson Gold but booked here following reading Trip Advisor reviews. What a find, we agree with the reviews about cleanliness, quality of food and the staff. Everything positively said about this hotel is correct. In fact we were so impressed we have changed our holiday booked for the end of August to come back here, even though it has cost us more money. Can't say fairer than that can you?

we have just spent a week at the Arenas, from the exterior it may look a little dated, do not be fooled this is a lovely friendly hotel, that is spotless, food varied and excellent quality, the staff cannot do enough for you to make your stay excellent. Other hotels could do with following the example of such a well run hotel. I would like to congratulate the manager thank you and your team for a lovely holiday,

My husband, daughter and I have just returned from Las Arenas after a great week's stay. We stayed here two years ago and had requested the same room which overlooked the busy road and beach and got it no problem. Hotel is in a great position only a 20 minute walk from the Marina and bus stops to anywhere you want to go within a few minutes walk. We went to Fuengirola, Marbella, Mijas and Torremolinos. The hotel is kept spotlessly clean and the food at breakfast and dinner is tremendous with plenty of choice. The staff are really helpful, pleasant and efficient. Would have no hesitation staying here again.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front of the hotel do not get late afternoon sun.
