... to the parking, getting our car and drive to Torremolinos which was on the way back to Malaga. In Torremolinos we parked our car in a underground parking and walked down to the boulevard which followed the beach for kilometers. It was nice cause there were all small shops and trendy bars build on and aside a beautiful beach. We had something to drink on a terrace and walked for about an hour, than we walked back through the old part of the ...

After than having had a look at dome " Rabajas" :-) we went back home to watch Argentina - België 1-0 !

Historical Traveler Reviews Las Arenas Hotel Benalmadena
Just returned from a week's stay at Las Arenas. Haven't done the "package" thing for a while so did not know what to expect.
I and four other mature mixed group have just returned after a wonderful week at the Las Arenas. The hotel is well positioned, directly opposite the beach with all amenities, shops bars etc very close by. The accomodation is to a high standard, everything you would expect from a four star hotel. The hotel was completely refurbished in 2004 and is kept up to a very high standard of cleanliness. The food is very good and varied, buffet style. Every department of this hotel, including the attitude of the staff is very friendly and very professional. The weather was very kind to us, which was an added bonus. We only had one critisism, that was the entertainment, only really aimed at the local needs. Having said that it no way spoiled our holiday.
Have just returned from a short 5 night beak at this hotel. Can only agree with the comments from other reviews. Hotel was first class, very clean, good food and friendly staff who were there to help if required.Rooms are of a good size of good standard, cleaned everyday, towels changed each day with bedding changed after two days. The only problem with the hotel would be if you wanted to spend the day by the pool. Due to the position of the pool, it gets very little sun and by noon gets no sun at all, even the area set aside for sun loungers, has limited sun shine in the afternoon.However the beach is directly over the road (Main Road)so this did not seem to be a big problem.
We stayed at this hotel over the New Year for 5 nights. Its a very clean Hotel opposite a lovely beach and within good walking distance to the fantastic Marina. You can get a bus about 300 metres along the road into Fuengirola for only just over 1 euro. There was only one bad point about this hotel that even though the waiters were very friendly the food in the Restaurant was only just fair, it was nearly always lukewarm at breakfast and dinner, so we ate out in Fuengirola quite a bit. There are a few nearby places to eat if you like English themed places, recommend going to Sopranos restaurant in Benamadena Pueblo..about 7 euros by taxi, worth it, lovely small old village.
All in all, good value and the rooms were very clean, modern and comfortable.
I've spent 4 wonderful days in Las Arenas with my husband when travelling to the city because of a wedding. The hotel is certainly worth the money:
spent a week at the Las Arenas (6 - 13th july 05 ) and found the hotel to be good value for money with one of the quietest air con units ever. The food was reasonable but if you wanted a change then cross the road outside the hotel, turn left go down the steps any there are a row of restaurants overlooking the beach which are well worth a visit.
Nearly four star
Had an enjoyable two weeks at this Three Star plus hotel.
Good quality rooms, food and very pleasant and attentive staff.
The pool area is adequate but lacks towels for the guests and could be improved by the introduction of a poolside bar and cafe.
All in all a good place to visit and value for money.
Excellent 4* Hotel
We have just returned from the Las Arenas Hotel, Benalmadena. This is an excellen 4* Hotel, clean, friendly and the food is first class. Service is second to none and the hotel is situated just over the road from the beach. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.
Excellent situated near the beach about 20mins walk from the Marina
via the promenade,
and to the Railway station (uphill); very good Hotel facilites.
One point however- if one is booked to a single room it may be too small,
especially the bathroom (no bath only a shower) so ask for a double room.
Exelent hotel,very clean and friendly.
Hotel las arenas has good facilities and is very friendly especially for young families. I would highly reccomend this hotel to anyone who wishes to enjoy a fabulous holiday by the sea, right oposite the beach it has very high standard rooms and excellent food. The staff are very friendly and some of the views from the higher rooms are great, it has a swimming pool and bar, a patio and a restuarant/living area.However when we were there there was no evening entertainment.The pool is never crowded so you can enjoy a swim with apool nearly entirely to yourself.
