Nice Christmas break

Lovely hotel and food, staff very friendly; but area very run down and bars best avoided. Even though it is winter it should have been better for Christmas, the whole coast is full of empty properties hotels being refurbished, but still going bankrupt; Handy for marina which is still vibrant and good centre for walks along prom either to Torremolinos or the other way also handy for buses, get card which provides discount very handy.

Nice Hotel but feel everything is half finished.

Nice room, Bathrooms still old but fine.The balcony's need a really good clean as you cannot see though it and Breakfast is a nightmare, You queue to get in and then get sat on a table that needs clearing. The Tea/coffee area is next to the Juice and Bread which causes a queue. Maybe they need to separate this area. Pool is OK and always Sunbeds. The location of this Hotel is fine. The WiFi is really bad even in reception. Staff are OK not over friendly but still OK.

Room is better that a lot of hotels

Good central place to stay

Just spent a week at the newly refurbished Alay Hotel. I had stayed there six years ago and found it adequate so decided to book it again as I wasn't too particular about fancy bedrooms or designer decor, etc. What a surprise I got on arrival, the former cream building had transformed to all white outside....a completely new foyer and Reception area, all bright and welcoming and so much improved from last time. Teresa the super-efficient Receptionist checked us in and went to a great deal of trouble trying to find a bag which we had lost at the Airport. That girl is an absolute GEM. The corridors, room and balcony had been newly painted, again in white, and the only part which might still be considered to be dated was the bathroom.....but it was clean on arrival and the daily cleaners did a good job keeping it that way. We were half board but only did one evening meal as we like to eat in different places. The breakfast is the same everyday but was very sufficient. Fried and scrambled eggs, bacon, fried tomatoes and a few other hot dishes. Plenty of cereal and fruit and a wide selection of hams and cheeses and several types of bread. Even a glass of Cava as well as selection of fruit juices and very excellent coffee. Maybe I'm too easily pleased but I found it very satisfactory, clean and well presented in the newly decorated dining room. The evening meal is rather basic but would be sufficient on an evening when one didn't want to go out to eat. The pool areas were fine, cleaned daily and there were plenty of available sunbeds. The location of the Hotel is right beside the beach and also the Marina which is so handy and convenient. So all you moaners, keep on with the negative reviews and that will ensure that there will always be a room at the Alay when I need one. Thanks to all the staff, especially Teresa for a very enjoyable week in very pleasant surroundings.

Food

The hotel itself was fine but the food was poor, if you didn't like pork then you were stuffed, stayed for a week but only eat in the hotel twice. This is not 4 star if they can't get the food right. That said the location was great next to the marina which thankfully had lots of great restaurants.

Overnight stay

For a couple of days stay the hotel is perfect. Very clean, helpful staff but very tired and in need of updating. This is not a 4 star hotel more like a 3.

One week enough standard

Alay hotel is dated in room space with no fridge. Table. And only bath shower. Beds are comfortable. Room service for cleaning is superb. Staff very helpfull. Reception very helpfull. Dining room staff are so busy & very nice. Food choice excellent both breakfast & evening meal. Plenty to eat. Champagne breakfast is always a winner for our holiday & we so enjoyed having this. Our only gripe was late night golfers, noisey as if middle of the day - talking/laughing loud, banging doors. Total inconsideration for sleeping guests.

The best thing about my stay was...

Clean room. Linen. Towels. And Staff.

Not 4 star

Hotel rooms very disappointing, very dated and badly in need of refurbishment, beds were clean and lots of hot water and towels. Breakfast was fine and staff in the hotel were very helpful. Definitely not 4 star but location is great. Very close to marina and the beach.

poor hotel not 4star

Stayed for 3 nights that was enough, no fridge in the room had to hire one, never seen or heard of that before and I'm a frequent traveller to Spain. Air con extremely noisy, beds uncomfortable. Even charge you to use sunloungers at the pool. The hotel is in desperate need of refurbishment. Would not return.

Good hotel, great location

I visited the Alay with a group of friends for a hen do. The hotel was in a good location for distance to the beach and to the amenities. The hotel was clean however in my opinion the rooms require updating. It was functional and clean but looked a little tired. Our air-conditioning did not work and somehow next doors television was plugged into our room unknown to us. We had been unplugging it to plug in our phone charger! One waiter was not very pleased when we turned up for breakfast at 10.25, breakfast was till 10.30. He told us to hurry up breakfast was going away. We had finished and left before the people left who were there before us. Had this hotel not been in such a great location I probrably would have given it a 6.

The best thing about my stay was...

Short walk to shops, beach, restaurant and bars.

Hotel Alay

Enjoyed our stay so much we are booking again for next year. Spotless hotel and the staff were lovely.Our room was spacious with a lovely view of Benalmadena's famous harbour. Breakfast was lovely - something for everyone. Location to die for, two minutes away from the harbour and the beach. Totally relaxing week, didn't want to come home.

The best thing about my stay was...

Love the sun terrace. Sat with an aperatif each night on comfy wicker sofas, basking in the evening sun, listening to soft classical music. Heaven

5 Day Break

Nice hotel although a little dated. Friendly staff at the desk and rooms made up daily. We had a late evening flight on our final day and having to check out at 12 noon, was great to be offered a complimentary shower and fresh towels to use after our final day on the beach.

The best thing about my stay was...

Close to the beach and Marina
