We had a lovely stay at Arenas del Mar, as our first summer holiday together. The weather was great, staff friendly and helpful and hotel was clean, spacious and welcoming.
The pool area was great, there were many spare sun loungers which didn't require early reservation, lots of good spots still available by 9/10am. The bar was great, with nice food (chips and toasties between 10 and 1300) and lovely staff. A particular highlight was the daily talk from Janet, our suncare advisor, who helped us stay safe in the sun. The pool was clean and heated which was great. Some windy-ness is to be expected, so maybe bring legs for the towels on the sun beds. Also, near to the bar we found much less windy. On arrival you get a towel card each which you can exchange for a towel and keep changing daily (there is a 10 euro change if you loose the card).
The beach was also close by, about 1-2 minutes out the gates of the pool area. The sea was lovely and warm and quite clear, so good for snorkeling. There were many surfers and windsurfers so great for this sport although we did not partake. The beach was windy though, so generally we stayed by the pool.
Entertainment was a bit hit-and-miss. Some people seemed to enjoy the table tennis games, pool gym sessions etc. In the evening there were some shows like the parrots, live music (not amazing) but still quite a good atmosphere.
The town nearby (El Medano) had lots of lovely looking restaurants and good shops. Also quite lively.
