Our stay here was just ok. The hotel is tired and a little run down but is very clean. The food wasn't great but it was ok my husband and I ate out most of the time. The location is great and the staff are really friendly.

So much to love about Hotel Alay it's hard to know where to start, we have just arrived back from a 7 night stay, we arrived on a Wednesday morning before lunch and were taken to our room with ten minutes of arrival, the duty manager even brought our suitcases up to our room for us. We had a family... More

Perfect location for night life. Midway between the port and 24 hour square. Numerous bars and restaurants within walking distance. Hotel fairly basic for a supposed 4 star. Should have fridges in rooms but the four rooms we booked were clean with good showers and baths. Breakfast was average with a good choice of hot and cold meats. Bar was... More

The Alay is the best place for the harbor,beach and shops etc. The price is what you get a clean hotel/room. It's a 1970 Spanish 4 star hotel. In Spain any hotel can rate them self's so it use to be a 4 star back in the 70's but it's a good 3 now. I have stayed at the Alay... More

Stayed here last weekend with friends for a short break. I would class the hotel more as a 3 star rather than 4 star, however, I had no complaints about it. The location is great, just a couple a minutes to the beach or the Marina. The reception and bar area are smart, the hotel is very clean. Our rooms... More

I have stayed here many times. The hotel need a renovation but has a perfect location. 5 minutes walk to the beach, puerto marina and 24h square. Try to get a room facing puerto marina and the sea. I did not like their breakfast

I stayed here with 5 others for a golfing trip. The hotel is very clean and also quite basic but the positive is the location. It is 2 mins walk to the fantastic marina with great bars and places to eat. Staff at hotel were very friendly, breakfast not great but it was cheap and cheerful so no complaints.

Booked here as we knew where it was located so easy to get there. Rooms are a little dated and could do with updating as could the pool area but couldn't fault the staff or the food which was excellent. Fantastic view (free) of the sea and the marina from our 12th floor room. Hotel is in the ideal location... More

An emergency stay in what looked like a good 4 star hotel booked 2 nights at Hotel Alay half board and paid up front. Rooms very dated and towels hard and fraying. Communal areas uninviting and bland. Elderly man on restaurant very rude insisted I had not paid for dinner and instead of ringing up to reception to check, promptly... More
