“Brilliant Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2013

Stayed here 2nd week of April 2013 for a week with the mrs. is the second time i've been to pdc and stayed in the old town first time round but these appartments were in the nbew town just of the strip but away enough not to get the noise from the Atlantico centre on an evening....and it was only a 2 min walk away. the rooms are comfortable with all you need for s/c except an oven but 2 rings there for pans. slight problem withe a lack of kettle while we were there due to the older kettles needing replacing, not a prob though just use a pan. very helpfull reception staff especially the young blonde German who strived to help whenever possible. the bathroom was a little dated but plenty of hot water. and comfy beds with extra pillows on demand. enjoyed our stay and would stay here again £157 for the week i thought was very reasonable considering the location. Rooms were cleaned every other day and beds made as well.

Stayed in these apartments in the last week of March of this year. The best thing about the apartments was the location. They are situated 2 min walk from the beach and from the wide variety of bars, nightclubs and restaurants. Despite the fact that it is so close to the bars it is very quiet at night. We couldn't hear a sound unless we were on balcony and tried to. The apartments themselves were very clean- we had cleaners 4 times during the week we were there. The beds were huge ;) No kettle but we got over that. The complex itself is well maintained and was very quiet. It was a pity that the hot tub was out of order. The pool was not heated and was a little cool during the week although the temps were warm. Didn't eat onsite but it appeared to be nice. Happy hour was from 4 to 5 everyday. 2 pints of beers for €2. Would definitely return. The apartments are not that expensive so don't expect luxury but more than adequate.

Two weeks of comfort. Staff very friendly. Less than five minutes walk to the beach. Gardens well kept and very tidy. Lovely swimming pool, ideal for sun-bathers.Good on site and plenty of off site restaurants if you don't fancy cooking. Being in central location the night life is entertaining.

Room Tip: Garden view ground floor rooms were peaceful and suited us perfectly. No noise at night-time.

beautiful gardens, very quiet and clean.
up a hill so be prepared to climb a bit.
either down towards the beach or left towards all the night scene, these apartments are well located.
kitchen doe snot have many appliances but you're better off eating out since groceries can be expensive.

I stayed at the Arena Dorada last year. The apartments aren't bad simple but still clean. On our third night we were woken up by a group of men shouting and hammering on our door, trying to get into the apartment. It was one of the scariest experiences I have ever had! They finally went away after some time. After expressing my concern to the receptionist she wasn't really that interested in what had happened. She said that a couple of apartments down the same night had had clothing etc taken from the balcony. After not letting us change apartments we moved into a hotel for the rest of the stay. Great location but I wouldn't feel safe again in the apartments especially if I had children with me.

Spent 10 days here January/February and can truthfully say that Arena Dorada will appeal to every sort of holidaymaker looking for a clean comfortable value for money apartment, with the beach less than 100 metres from the front entrance. Staff were very helpful when we had a problem - Jana was able to sort things out without any fuss. The pool area is well maintained and we had no problem getting sunbeds although some guests did stake a claim to the area immediatly before the lower row of apartments from an early hour. Food and refreshments were reasonably priced and always served with a smile from the waiting staff. Apartments are a good size and contain all that is needed by those going Self catering. Bedroom and Bathroom areas were fine.
This was our 4th visit to Arena Dorada and I'm quite sure it won't be the last.

Room Tip: Block B should be avoided as the view from Terrace/Balcony is limited with Block C being most popula...

For a budget price you cant really beat this place. We stayed self catering so cant comment on the food, but there are so many excellent places to eat in Puerto Del Carmen so why would you go all inclusive?. This was our third time in PDC, first time at these apartments. If we go back it will certainly be to here. Clean and well maintained rooms, friendly staff who are very willing to give any required info. Excellent location almost halfway on the strip and the harbour. No air con but easy to get a nice cooling draft going.

Room Tip: Get a second floor room.
