We had a wonderful week here in August. The hotel is part of a group of 3 hotels & villas on the Verudela Peninsula, all within walking distance and you have a access to them all. The Park Plaza Arena is smaller and quieter than the its sister hotel Histria & the Verudela Villas. There was a nice mix of young and older couples and families. Its set slightly back from the sea (approx 150m) with pines trees all around. There are beds and hammocks under the pine trees for use by guests as well as sunloungers around the pool. The pool has chlorinated salt water but don't let that put you off as that is the case with all the other hotels too. The beach has large flat stones so aqua shoes are recommended. The sea is beautifully clear. There is a water slide (free) and an play aqua inflatable course (chargeable) paddle board & kayak hire. Buffet breakfast was fabulous with lots of choice offering fruit, meats, cheese, cooked items, pastries and great coffee. Dinner buffet was equally extensive, or there was a la carte. Due to Covid, staff served the buffets at each section but that didn't hinder how much you could have. The staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough to make your stay enjoyable. We have 2 children and had a 2 bedroom garden suite which was fantastic. Views through the pine trees with the sea beyond. Very peaceful indeed. We would highly recommend this hotel.
