Arenas Del Mar Hotel

El Medano

You're just 900 metres from the centre of El Medano, and you're right on the seafront too. In other words, when you stay at the Arenas del Mar Hotel you're absolutely perfectly placed for a fabulous holiday in one of Tenerife's most popular spots. And what about that beach… it's one of the most impressive stretches of beach in the whole of Tenerife. It really is amazing: beautifully black sands that stretch as far as the eye can see, bordered by the irresistible blue of the Mediterranean.

Enjoy one of the region's premier spots, within a whisper of the rolling dunes:

The Arenas del Mar Hotel has certainly earned its four stars and its incredible reputation. People flock to El Medano for that beach and that wonderful weather. And for anyone who's stayed there, the Arenas del Mar Hotel is just as much of a draw.

The views are outstanding, and its position on the seafront within easy reach of both town and beach is unrivalled. But location isn't everything. The Arenas del Mar Hotel is so enduringly popular because it's such a smart, modern hotel with fantastic amenities.

Just wait till you see the pool. Fringed by recliners and a wave of trees, – and then by the beach itself; there's something so much more exhilarating about swimming with the unmistakable scent of the fresh sea air in your nostrils.

Whatever you do, don't forget that there's an indoor pool too. Part of a wonderful recreation suite, with the superb spa facilities available*, you really could spend a lot of time here. Floor length windows let in loads of that wonderful light, and bring out the gorgeous colours in this little haven of peace and tranquillity. Please note the recreation suite is open to Adults only.

One of the really nice things about the Arenas del Mar Hotel is that sense that whatever you might hope for, the reality is better. The guests' rooms are a good example. Bigger and better than most hotel rooms, the standard rooms are actually junior suites. So there are double beds as standard, and plenty of room for you to relax and unwind.

All rooms come with a wonderful balcony – well, you really do want to make the most of those incredible views. They also satellite plasma TV and phone, room safe and minibar. Sea view rooms are also available.

The Arenas del Mar Hotel is choc-full of amenities too, ranging from its own internet cafe and shop, to a TV lounge and all sorts of activities. With a restaurant, cafe and pool bar as well, this really is one of those hotels that you could quite happily luxuriate in for a week or more.

The Arenas del Mar Hotel in El Medano is a tourist hotspot. Some are drawn by its wonderful beaches; but some – those who've been before and stayed at the Arenas del Mar Hotel – can't resist another stay at the region's premier four star facility.

A little gem - fantastic value for money

Do ignore the negative reviews! This hotel is value for money big time. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff. They work so hard and are always happy and smiling. The food at all meals is very good. I’m really fussy and I always found something to eat! Breakfast was my favourite meal. The place is spotless! All drinks are good both non alcoholic and alcoholic, the wine is very drinkable as is the beer and the cocktails are great. We did move room, not because there was anything wrong with it but because we had a Mountain View and wanted a sea view which was accommodated for an extra 7 euro per night per person well worth it in my opinion. Always plenty of sun beds around the pool! Pool was a little on the cool side but fine when once in. We had the most fabulous weather and a fantastic time. We will definitely return.

Can’t recommend enough!

Everything you could ask from an all inclusive hotel! Lovely room, nice food, spa and pool area were incredible. Biggest credit to this place has to be the staff, they absolutely made the experience! Bar and reception staff were amazingly friendly despite how busy they were, and the entertainment staff were an absolute joy. Especially Irune, as my partner and i got involved with the activities most nights of our holiday, she remembered our names, said hello to us every morning and kindly let us know the itinerary for the day and encouraged us to join in!

Definitely would come here again, thank you very much!

Arenas Del Mar not 4*

Reception looks nice. Staff friendly then it goes down hill.

Rooms require maintenance and a good clean. The walls need painting. The bathroom door paint flaking. Shower needs cleaned. Curtains have marks on ghrr er m could be blood. Bed cover and couch stained. Cleanliness was something that I think they have forgot about. They have just wiped over things. We had 3 rooms before we found one that was ok. That’s all I can say.

All inclusive. Drinks are basic but I honestly don’t mind this as not much of a drinker. Food plenty off it but the HOT food is not hot not even piping hot. Heat lamps are just drying the food up.

Don’t think we will be back

Relaxing week away

We have just returned from our 7 night stay and was very pleased with the time spent there. Although after reading a lot of reviews we was wary, however we was pleasantly surprised when we arrived. Location is very nice and quiet. Reviews claiming that it’s windy, yes it’s windy but you’re made very aware of this if you actually look up and read about your location prior to going! The restaurant reviews was what we was most wary about. However taking in to account this is a buffet style restaurant there’s nothing more to expect, do people not understand the concept of a buffet? At times food is cold, however I just depends on when you arrive for your meal as food is cook freshly at different intervals. I am a rather picky eater so I was pleasantly surprised with the selection of food I would actually eat and the general selection of food was very good and different things on offer each day. The different varieties of meat was very good and was cooked to perfection in our opinion. The supermarket that is connect to the hotel outside was good, fresh bakery products each day which we enjoyed and good value for money on most things! The pool area is small however you don’t feel cramped or on top of each other while trying to relax in the sun. We would 100% return, however if you want to have a sunny balcony I would suggest to book a room with sea/pool view as we was Mountain View which was in the shade however we enjoyed that as a break from the sun. The rooms was of very good size. Cleaned daily, yes minimally cleaned but the basic that needed cleaning was done! There was entertainment most nights but we wasn’t particularly bothered about the entertainment side of things. The hotel have a bus service that runs on certain days with is a €15 return pp ticket which takes you to Siam park or to Los Crisitianos which we thought was good value and got to spend a nice amount of the day there. If you are wanting to stay somewhere close to night life then this isn’t the location for you however if you’re wanting a nice relaxing stay away then I would 100% recommend this hotel. We definitely be returning.

Disappointing holiday

Unfortunately this hotel did not live up to any standards of a good hotel. The food is very poor and options for vegetarians is nearly non existent. Food was either overcooked and the vegetables looked like they came from a tin and nothing seemed particularly fresh. This is a shame as the position of the hotel is by the beach and could be so much better. The hotel really needs updating as it is very tired and I'm not sure why it has a 4 star rating. A disappointing hotel. Staff seemed disconnected, but they did not seem to have many staff so I assumed they were incredibly busy. The rooms were given new towels every day, but the cleaning of the rooms was very basic. Beds were not changed the whole week we were there.
