Arena Suites has a great location, right on the beach and quick walk to the Centro or La Ropa beach. Plenty of restaurants around. The room was clean, with the ceiling fan and A/C, plus a kitchenette. The room was cleaned every day and everyone in the hotel is very friendly and helpful. The hotel provided 20L bottles of purified water for very little fee, which was very appreciated. There is a convenience store across the street. We really enjoyed our stay.
We have only one complaint. The lounge chairs on the beach are in the restaurant's area. We were told that 6 palapas with 12 lounge chairs where allocated for the hotel guests. But it appeared that the restaurant was catering to the people who paid for the drinks/meals more so than to the hotel's guests. When it got busy at the beach with lots of tourists around, the restaurant put out only 3 umbrellas with 6 lounge chairs, all palapas were reserved for the dining tables. The lounge chairs were quickly taken and we had no place to seat on the beach, we asked hotel staff to add more lounges but there was no action.
