We arrived at around 16.00 and there was only one receptionist on duty. She was very nice and very helpful but it was very busy and it took almost an hour to get checked in. Not a good start but after this it got much better. All the staff are very friendly.
The décor was quite plain but our room was very clean, comfortable and very well designed. It had a good bath/shower that you could easily use without soaking the floor. Actually I have been in five star hotels with worse bathrooms than this. Plenty of space to park your toiletries, etc. We only paid £33 per night for the room with breakfast.
Plenty of wardrobe space but there was a shortage of coat hangers. They got us some more when we asked. We had a spacious room on 9th floor with an enclosed balcony and a sea view. The Wi-Fi was excellent, in fact it was the best I have experienced in a hotel. It was November so the pool was closed. It was a small pool with a few sunbeds and I would imagine good enough to have a swim and cool off in hot weather.
Breakfast is good but some items can be a bit cold - a common problem in Spain. They provide fried, scrambled and boiled eggs, bacon beans mushrooms, etc. They also have the full selection of continental breakfast components. It was much better than we expected.
Location is about a 15 minute straight walk into the centre of the city but if you can't be bothered walking in the Marq/Castello tram station is literally across the street. Trams are very quick and efficient with one every four or five minutes. There is also a bus stop right outside the hotel entrance.
I would have no hesitation in recommending the Hotel Maya. If we come back to Alicante it will be the first place we look.
