  • The gym above Playa Arena hotel is council run, and is geared for sport and is big of course it is better than a small hotel gym, I know the arena gym and the staff told me they bought 2 new running machines this year, and hotel guests thrashed them, they have just installed 2 new bikes, the gym is not there main line of business and I know they are not gym people, but have to offer this facility and i think they do their best, so do not bring local businesses down, everyone in this area is struggling and we should be supporting each other, not slagging each other, I have been (swallow) resident here many years and it is upsetting to see the area so quiet compared to how it used to be.
    I must say that I do like the arena gym and they give big discounts on treatments to us residents, they do there best and we should not knock it.

  • I am not slagging off the gym when you pay to use a gym you exspect the machines to be working correct, its no wander
    no one goes there  may be they should close the gym  if they can not run it right........ this is only my view from how i see it

  • yes you are slagging off the gym, they have got new equipment, they are mainly a service to their hotel guests, locals only use it if they chose to, if you chose not to then don't make remarks that are unwarrented, why don't you face the girls directly rather than a sly comment, I am fed up with this board being used to bring people down, I am a member and several people I know are members, so you cannot say that nobody goes, I hope the girls contact you directly.

    Don't get your lycra in a twist Iris, Hope was merely stating his opinion on the two facilities he's visited, "slagging off" was not my interpretation of his post.  If you are fed up with this message board then you too  can always choose not to read it.

  • Fair enough wags but if its just food and drink you're looking for try The Bamboo Bar.  I hear that they also have the occasional arm wrestling match in there too ;) ;)

  • Thanks Iris for your support, I am an owner of the gym and would just like to say that we had 2 working treadmills one brand new, both treadmills were misused by visiting hotel guests, unfortunately both at the same time, we tried daily to get a replacement or repair person out, we were on the phone everyday for some assistance, I suppose we have to get used to how things are on the island, we knew the bikes were playing uop a bit so ordered 2 new ones, they took 3 months to arrive from mainland Spain! But now installed.
    I am upset that Hope has said that we do not know what we are doing :(
    We revamped that gym and spent a fortune, we have reception staff on at all times and all equipment has been cleaned and maintained and a personal trainer is available, all the other numerous equipment are fine, just unfortunate that the cardio let us down, which was not our fault and we did everything we could to rectify, so I feel the comments are unfair.
    I have not used this forum before, a friend told me about the comment and I felt it only fair to point out that we really are not uncaring or unprofessional, we inherited the gym which must stay and we have done our best, our treatment rooms are superb and we have over 40 luxurious therapies which are discounted to residents.
    We are nice people and we offer a gym daily rate of only 4.50 per person that includes use of the hotels heated swiming pools and a lounger set in tropical gardens..................if anyone knows a treadmill expert please send him our way!
