“Nothing Special”
Reviewed 21 September 2010

I stayed here with 2 friends and we booked and paid for a triple room and got a twim room with a fold up bed they explained to us that there was no other avaible beds.
The water kept cutting off during shower which was quiet annoying but they where quick to fix the problem.
The selection for breakfast and dinner is very good its E6 for breakfast with a vast selection and you can get a €12 buffet dinner 3 course which i taught was very good a tip would be to go down at 8 when they start serving the food so its still hot.
It was far away from the town center there is a short cut at the back of the hotel that brings you to the beach in 2 minutes and a big shopping center across the road.
It was an ok hotel but i wouldnt stay here again.

I stayed at this hotel for a week with my mother in September 2010. We were placed in a room inbetween 2 parties of extremely noisy holidaymakers who were travelling together.
Our "neighbours" held very loud disruptive parties from 6pm to 11pm every single night, and again for at least an hour around 4am when they returned from the town.
The walls are so thin in this hotel that you can hear your neighbours snoring, coughing, going to the toliet, and of course any nighttime bedrom antics can be heard too - not pleasant!
We compained to reception 3 times on the first night, again the following morning and again the next morning, but the hotel were unable to facilitate us with a move to another room.
Hotel reception staff should be more aware when they are allocating rooms to guests, and place groups of people travelling together in adjacent rooms where possible.
I have never felt the need to write a review about a hotel before, but our experience with Hotel Maya totally ruined our week's holiday.

I spent 4 nights in this hotel, between August 17-21, 2010. The hotel is located at the foot of the hill with the Santa Barbara Castle, with easy access to the beach (10 min walk) and to the city center (20 min walk). I paid 56 eur/night for a single room, with I considered good value. My room (in fact a double in single occupancy) was located on the 7th floor, with a view to the Castle. The room was large, with all amenities expected from a 3* hotel: minibar, air conditioning, hairdryer, safe deposit box; a cash deposit is expected for the safe key and a credit card to guarantee for the minibar use. It was spotless clean and the personnel at the reception was polite, helpful and professional. I recommend it for its location, comfort and price.

I picked the hotel maya as it was near to the beach, and near to a shopping centre... both were a ten min walk away, The staff were all very friendly, and the rooms of a good size.... the balcony was ' depressing ' mostly blocked in with a window ,,, the swimming pool was small but ideal for a dip, the breakfast was good value, and had a good selection. . lovely airconditioned and nice firm beds... would use again but only as somewhere to sleep, as not much else going on nearby .....

This is a really great hotel, the staff were outstanding and their friendliness was brilliant. I arrived late in the evening after catching a taxi from the airport and when Iwent to retrieve my reservation at the hotel I missed the passport. I relaized I left it at the taxi and I hadn't take note of the registration number on the taxi plate. The receptionist immediately put a call in to central control at the taxi rank and two hours later the taxi driver arrived back with my passport. The hotel is clean bright and spacious, lovely fresh rooms with internet access and regular supply of clean towels. The lifts can be slow at times but there have a sign up to say three new lifts are to be installed. The buffet breakfast was lovely with a choice of hot and cold food. It's about ten walk to the beach and there is a lovely large shopping mall about 5 min walk away. A bus leaves outside the front of the hotel regularly for the citycenter. The pool is lovely with plenty of lounge chairs and a bar is opened beside it. The hotel serves lunch and dinner and there is also a bar that serves light food in the ground floor. I would most definitely stay again as it was very pleasurable and reasonable priced.

Read some reviews about this hotel and agreed with most of the more mature postings..this is a very nice hotel with clean and cool rooms ..rooms have 24hr controllable air conditioning,balcony and plenty of clean towels...the hotel has a very clean and well maintained pool with great sunning area with bar..hotel ok with bringing your own eats and treats to the poolside..
the bus stops outside the door and the tram station to many destinations is a 100 yards away...you just have to remember this is spain and it is very hot and the locals speak spanish..this is not the hotels fault...lol

We went to Alicante for 1 wk break away from the UK. Unfortunatly when we arrived at midnight there was a problem with our room, we were shipped off for the night to another hotel...... but the following day we checked in to our room with an upgrade to superior. After this mix up- flooding in our room apparently.... the stay was fantastic. Clean rooms, ok sized pool wasn't huge but lovely to dip in and cool off. Breakfast ok. Buffet style, that set you up for the day. Yes a 10 min downhill walk to the beach or get on the tram- stop just 20m from hotel, for 1.20 you could go up to playa san juan massive stretch of nicer beach. About 20min walk into town but in the hot evenings this was pleasurable. We are a young couple av age of 30 and this type of hotel completley met our expectations and needs. Plus great value!
