Relaxing stay

9.06/10

This is our third time to stay @ this wonderful hotel. The staff are excellent from the reception the restaurant, the bar staff, cleaning, management all do an amazing job. Food in the restaurant has something for everyone. I would recommend paying the bit extra for a superior room. The location is also excellent. Looking forward to my next trip back to the Alba beach.

Amazing Staff

9.06/10

Our 5th visit in 15 months the staff greet us like Family. They are so friendly and are the main reason we keep coming back. A special mention for Maria in Reception area, always so helpful. Weve already booked for next May. Just one thing...the change of Hotel name during our stay was confusing it would have been nice to have been told, not a major problem though. Thank you Alba Beach.

Great value hotel.

9.06/10

Ive stayed at this hotel a few times in the the past two years. Its location is excellent. The food is good. Staff are so friendly its nice to see the same staff each time I come back. Its spotless clean. However the whole hotel looks tired and dated and could do with a freshening up.

Just back from a weeks holiday with my sister at the hotel. The staff are wonderful and work so hard. They go above and beyond in such a busy environment and are always smiling and helpful. We will definitely be back and were sorry to leave. A great hotel in benalmadena.

Viaje por temas familiares.

9.06/10

Como ya he indicado en anteriores ocasiones, estoy yendo a menudo por motivos familiares. Esta vez, no hice la reserva con mucha antelación y cuando llegué, nos dieron la habitación 720, bastante mal, hay un ruido desde las 6,30 de la mañana hasta las 22 horas. es por el tubo que va desde las cocinas hasta el tejado y justo está en la pared de la habitación. Por lo demás todo bien.
