Five adults from the UK holidayed in the bungalow for a week in September 2013. We loved the accommodation together with the area it was situated in. There was plenty of room for us and a 6th person could easily have been accommodated. The bungalow is very homely and has a huge assortment of features and facilities.
The primary feature of the apartment is undoubtedly the rooftop terrace with its 360 degree panoramic view. This included a view of Alicante which extended into the mountains in one direction and the sea in another direction. We spent many evenings dinning on the terrace watching the sun set over the mountains and just relaxing into the early hours off the morning being captivated by the views.
The holiday bungalow is situated in an elevated position so the seafront of Los Arenales is a downhill walk of 5 or 6 minutes. It should be noted that this downhill walk may not be suited to disabled or elderly people.
There are a number of bars, restaurants and small supermarkets along the seafront area which are comparatively cheap. A five course lunch for between €9 and €14 is typical. Los Arenales is very Spanish compared to the neighbouring are of Gran Alacant and we found the waiters in Los Arenales did not speak much English but were always extremely helpful and friendly when trying to translate the menus. Two of our favourite restaurants were the Bon Aire Playa and ChaKra.
The beach of Los Arenales is beautiful and extremely clean. Our favourite beach area at the very end of the Los Arenales seafront, just before Gran Alacant, called the Life Beach Club where waiter service on the beach was available for drinks and snacks.
Regular buses ran from the seafront to the local towns. The fare to Elche was €2 per person and to Santa Polo €1.50.
We will definitely return to this accommodation in Los Arenales.
