The hotel apartments were lovely, and the staff were excellent. Their language skills were especially appreciated since I don't speak Spanish, and my wife only speaks very little. The gentleman 'Jesus' and the young lady receptionist with brown hair who spoke English and German (sorry, I forgot your name) were particularly helpful.
We appreciated the location, which is about a 30-40 minute drive from the airport, yet only 2 minutes from the beach. So no noisy stag/hen parties etc, but plenty of life on the long seafront nearby. The small complex is mainly aimed at couples, or those with older children, as there isn't anything aimed at toddlers. As a result you've got that happy medium between 'no stag/hen parties' and 'no screaming kiddies running riot'. Great for relaxation.
The pool area has a small kiosk bar nearby doing cocktails and ice creams at reasonable prices. The pool is basic but nice, a 1.4m adult pool and a shallower child pool. Plenty of sun loungers for a quiet time of year, but not all had mattresses, so a towel or two is good to have.
The rooms were spacious (double bedroom, bathroom, kitchen/lounge area) and well equipped. The kitchen has a few basic utensils in case you want to cook simple meals. There are hot drink facilities by using the coffee-maker to boil water, and a fridge for cold stuff, but no actual tea/coffee etc. There's a superdino 150m away to stock up.
The rooms were kept exceptionally clean by the very conscientious cleaning staff. They definitely deserve a good tip.
The half-board meals were provided at the hotel next-door, and were excellent: varied choices, excellent quality, lovely setting. In the mornings (8am-10am) there was continental and cooked breakfast options, plenty of fruit, unlimited drinks. In the evenings (7pm-9.30pm) there was a large salad bar, 3-4 hot main options with lots of sides (pick and mix) with a large desert and fruit selection. Drinks aren't included, but were just 3 Euros per person for unlimited drinks. Various soft drinks and juices, white/red/rose wines and a lager/beer, all via the expected small glasses. Overall really pleased.
The only thing to be aware of is that the beds have very firm mattresses. While this might suit some, it gave me terrible back ache. The wife preferred sleeping on the sofa bed. So maybe take a mattress topper if you back is a little mattress-fussy.
All in all, REALLY PLEASED, and the only issue was the beds for us, but that is a pretty personal thing.
Lovely family hotel in great quite location. We went for a week with two toddlers. Our room was on the first floor and there are lifts for nights. We had a huge private patio great for the kids. All the staff where amazing friendly and helpful.
Stayed at the arena apartments for 11 nights,excellent accomadation,rooms cleaned every day,close to the beech and restaurants ,local supermarket,5mins away with everything you need,the only down side is theirs no air conditioning in the rooms,you have to rent fans,but I would definitely return
Great place to stay,
Big rooms and sunny balcony--rooms cleaned every day-clean towels every day. Stayed for 2 weeks, No air conditioning but fan was given to us for the whole trip

There can not be a more cozy site. The apartaments are perfectly prepared with all accesories necessary, a pool climatized at perfect temperature and with an excellent service, good people and very friendly.
First time in Arena´s Suite and I will be there again.The main reception areas of the hotel are clean and modern and have been fairly recently refurbished and furnished to a good standard. The hotel staff are lovely and friendly and the rooms are clean and comfortable.
