The Be Live Experience Playa la Arena nails family breaks. It’s within arm’s reach of a sandy sweep, and lines up enough sports and activities to keep things fresh every day.
This place is a hop, skip and a jump from a black-sand beach, and it only takes a couple of minutes to stroll to the waterfront. That also means top-drawer views of neighbouring La Gomera from all over the hotel.
Inside, it’s the lobby that’s the real attention-grabber. Vine-tasselled balconies and grand columns stretch out either side of a wooden seating deck, which is designed to look like the bow of an old ship.

The hotel (4 *) is really great. Excellent: food, swimming pools, architecture, space, location, ... Problem big: wifi insufficient (4 *), not barrels of drinking water !!!
