MS Alay Apartments
Ranked #24 of 45 Hotels in Benalmadena
Reviewed 23 May 2012

Me and my two girlie friends went out to Benalmadena Spain this April 2012 for 10days and stayed at Ms Alay apartments, the staff were so friendly and welcoming, we got on so well with them. The location was fab...literally not even a minute walk to the 24 hour square, where we ended up most nights and loved 'Molly Malone's bar' check it out. The beach and the Marina are in the other direction but again not far, only a 5 minute walk. We ate at the Marina every night, had some lovely dishes from Sakura (Chinese/Thai and Japanese), Ruby's, Metro a nice Italian and a 'posh steak house- Gauicho' where the steak's were cooked to perfection!
Downside to the hotel was that with it being so close to nightlife it got rather noisy for people who weren't there for the party scene like we were.

Stayed here for 3 nights for a friends 40th birthday (they stayed in a nearby villa) and found the apartment to be clean, spacious and very comfortable.
As with others I had a roadside apartment which could be quite noisy but I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Try to get a poolside room

just back from a three night break, we had three apartments between 5 of us, have to say ms alay apts are ideal for a group get away i.e. hen, stag etc.. very clean spacious apartments, stayed on road side is a little noisy, pool side much quieter. Out the front door to the left is 24hr square perfect for a mad night out, and out the front door to the right two minutes you have the beach, port/marina much quieter ideal for dining out. I would have no problem recommending these apts for a group getaway as most people we met there were hens stags not families or couples.

Room Tip: pool side rooms much quieter:)

just back from a hen weekend and have to say we had no problems watsoever. Apartments have everything you need, location is the best thing about them. Found the staff to be very friendly and helpful.
Only downside was a few of our party commented on the noise from outside but we expected that.

Had requested a pool view, but when we arrived we were told this was not possible. The room was clean and lovely for 3*. However we were awakened by a loud wailing noise in the afternoon and eventually went to Reception wondering what was happening !!! I was told that the room next door was occupied by a person who locked the dog in all day and then went to work !!!! lol! Manola on Reception then offered us another room which was overlooking the pool, so this was lovely and quieter. The older dark haired girl on Reception was downright rude to everyone, us included when we asked to borrow a hairdryer from Reception !!!
These apartments are great for the Marina and 2 minutes from the Beach. There didn't seem to be many people stayng at these apartments so the pool was quiet during the day, though it was an added bonus to get free wifi in the lobby area.There is a great supermarket at the Marina and Reubens Money exchange facing the apartments.There is a pub next door to the aprtments which does breakfast and snacks etc , I dont think I would rush back to stay here, but for the price we paid they were fine,

Room Tip: as said before rooms overlooking the pool are quieter thab street facing rooms
