Positive Reviews

Good location right in Benalmadena

Alay hotel is well located for access to shops, restaurants and bars You are close enough to hit up the nightlife and easily get back after dark The Marina is just a short walk and the beach is steps away Sea-Life is near by and it’s also a great starting spot for day trips.

Basic, clean rooms

Rooms are basic but clean and tidy and beds comfortable In general, the hotel is kept clean The upper floor rooms have amazing views of the sea and surrounding area, definitely try to book a room high up Additionally, the hotel is quiet and you’ll get a great night’s sleep.

Nice staff and good breakfast

The staff is polite and helpful, especially reception They are quick to address any requests you may have Food is reasonably priced and of good quality; breakfast is particularly good and offers plenty of selection.

Negative Reviews

Dated rooms in need of TLC

Rooms at Alay hotel are tired looking with worn carpets and old furniture TVs and hairdryers are old The air conditioners work poorly if at all, and when on is noisy Rooms also need a few amenities added such as coffee/tea facilities and fridges Finally, lower rooms have bad views; make sure yours is higher up.

Poor Wi-Fi connection

The Wi-Fi in the rooms is intermittent at best and doesn’t work well at all on certain floors.

Limited parking and paid sunbeds

There’s a good chance the car park will be full when you arrive, there’s a limited number of spots In this case, the hotel will send you to a paid lot farther away While they do provide a discount, it’s still pricey and inconvenient Also, in order to use the larger, nicer pool you need to pay for use of the sunbeds.
