“glorified b&b”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 October 2013

This is no doubt a lovely little B&B and so many reviews are spot on here regarding cleanliness.food and setting but I must say We have just spent 1 whole week without sleep as the room we had may I add was excellent was pounded by noise every night sometimes until 3,4 in the morning if you are unlucky and get one of these rooms you will need another break when you get home. This is not the fault of the hotel but it really is joke selling these rooms unless you no beforehand what to expect. the young man at breakfast was excellent but apart from him there is nothing to write home about here regarding customer service. If we had stayed in another room our experience may have been different, but I would advise anybody to give this so called hotel a miss. room110 awful

Room Tip: stay away from the bar across the road side at all costs

We have stayed at this hotel five times over the last twenty five years. It just gets better and better. Since our last visit which was three years ago. Rooms and circulation areas have been totally refurbished in a clean, modern style. Fixtures and fittings are of a very good standard as is the service from this relatively small family run hotel. The restaurant is excellent due in the main to their superb chef. Continental breakfast is served daily and the hotel has its own adjacent bakery. The situation is central and overlooks Es Canar's mini harbour.

First time to Ibiza, could not have chose a better place, Es Canar has been able to remain a small place while having something for most people, bars, restaurants, watersports, music, hippies.
The Las Arenas, as far as we are concerned, was ideal. Not many rooms have balconies, but there is a big roof terrace that is easily accessed from any room (although having said that this place is generally not suitable for people with mobility problems)
The lack of a pool was no problem for us as the beach was so near. You can also use various pools around the town for the price of a couple of drinks
Hotel is absolutely spotless and as another reviewer says, the cleaner is superb, never stops.
Breakfasts are what we expected, typically Spanish continental, plus varied pastries from the attached bakery.
The staff are all very nice and make you feel very welcome, we were there 2 weeks and felt almost home.
The restaurant serves probably the best food in the area. Plenty of variety and not chips with everything. We ate there often.
There are a few comments regarding noise but to be honest we liked the music and the general bustle of the place, we never found it obtrusive. The music always stopped around midnight with only people milling around to disturb the peace.
We travelled around the island by bus, which was easy and cheap, and it was always nice to return to our resort, we did not feel we were missing out.
Ibiza town is a really nice place to visit. The disco bus was ideal for late transport and not at all rowdy.

The Las Arenas is just fantastic!! We had a two week stay on bed and breakfast basis and enjoyed every minute of it. Rooms are fairly basic but have everything you want, we payed for a sea view and balcony and it was worth the extra.. a lovely view of the beach and harbour to wake up to each morning. The air-con is extra but we knew this when we booked so no problem. They are cleaned daily and were spotless throughout our stay. Breakfast is served in the small cafe at the front of the hotel and is of Spanish fair, lots of lovely Serrano ham, meats, cheese, tomato, fruit, breads and croissants.. fruit juices, tea and coffee were great too. Evening meals at the restaurant are pretty good too, an extensive menu of locally sourced food and the set menu is 11.50 Euros for three courses. Es Cana itself was, as always, wonderful.!! Overall we had a great holiday at Las Arenas and would return here without hesitation.. Brilliant!!

Room Tip: Pay extra for the sea view.. worth every penny!

Just had a wonderful break in Las Arenas for a week. The beach is so close that we didn't miss a pool at the hotel. Everybody at the hotel is very welcoming and friendly. I saw from a previous comment that were no tea/coffee making facilities so I took a travel kettle as I need my cuppa first thing. I also knew there was no tv in the room but I still missed not being able to watch the news. Whilst I realise it is a budget hotel I still think a cuppa in the morning and a tv would have made such a difference to our stay. I found the continental breakfast was brilliant but my husband felt that if a cooked breakfast was wanted a reduction could be made for residents. It was great having the ferry service a few yards from the hotel with regular trips to other resorts. The view from our balcony was spectacular, we were so close to the sea we could hear the waves lapping against the boats in the small harbour. So relaxing. The beach is clean with plenty of bars and retaurants. Lots of sunbeds and umbrellas at the standard 5 euros each a day. Would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: The bar to the right of the hotel was pretty loud so the rooms on the left side would be quieter, as...

We have just returned from 2 weeks at the Las Arenas and found the hotel to be spotlessly clean, the cleaner deserves a medal for the effort that she puts in to her work and well done to her. The staff at the hotel are welcoming and very friendly, many thanks to Carlos and Marta for looking after us so well. On the down side if you wished to use the room safe - €47 for 14 days which includes a €5 refund, the air con was €8 a day, so we decided to save our €112. I would also note that it was our experience as Thomson guests we seemed to be the poor relation in regard to the room allocation and lack of tv and toiletries.
The buffet breakfast was excellent with a good choice of juices, croissants, meats, cheese, eggs and tomatoes. There was also cereal, fresh fruit and yoghurt. You were limited to one cup of coffee but could buy extra cups if required at €1.45.
All in all an excellent location, quite a lot of noise from the Jacaranda bar opposite, but this is a well run and well recommended hotel.

Room Tip: Try to avoid travelling with Thomson.
