If you’re looking for a slightly more budget-friendly option, consider booking a stay at Benalmadena’s Hotel Alay.

Conveniently located in the town center, this adults-only recommended hotel is steps from the marina and the beach. Great for couples and friends, the hotel offers spacious rooms and an onsite restaurant with an international menu. Gardens and three outdoor pools are available for your leisure. 

Most of the hotel’s rooms look out on the Mediterranean. When you’re not enjoying a night out on the town, the hotel’s summer terrace offers cocktails. A 24-hour reception and luggage storage facilities are available to ensure your stay is seamless.


What to Consider Before Booking?

As with any beach destination, Benalmadena’s prices vary based on the season.

The peak season generally lasts from June to September, and prices are bound to be highest then. Spring and Autumn may offer a drop in prices, but still see plenty of guests as these months tend to have pleasant weather.

Winter is Benalmadena’s off-season, and prices will be more affordable at this time of the year. It’s the perfect time to get the best deal on your hotel, while being able to enjoy some winter sun.

Benalmadena is quite small, so you will probably be close to major nightlife, eateries, and beaches no matter where in town you stay. However, if you want to be able to reach the beach in a matter of minutes, be sure to book an aptly located hotel.

Why Choose Adults-Only?

There are plenty of benefits if you’ve never stayed at an adults-only hotel. A child-free environment is bound to be less distracting than a traditional family-friendly hotel stay.

If you have children at home, you know it’s often difficult to get a moment to yourself. A hotel designed for adults is perfect for romantic getaways, trips with the besties, or solo adventurers looking for peace and quiet.
