“Good Apartments”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2012

Stayed at Alay Apartments for 10 nights in June and was generally satisfied with them. Our apartment was on the street side but it was not too noisy, poolside apartments are quieter. The apartments are close to restaurants and shops and are 2 minutes from the lovely marina where the restaurants are slightly more expensive but are usually better quality. Our studio was spacious and regularly cleaned, poolside beds and mattresses were free and the only complaint I would have were a slight shortage of sunbeds and quite a few of the beds were broken and needed replacing. Free wi-fi.

Room Tip: Try to get a poolside Apartment.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2012

We stayed at these apartments for 3 nights in June. The outside signage could be improved, especially as there is a hotel Alay on the same street. Having stayed in Malaga for a couple of day we arrived by taxi, which dropped us at the wrong place. Later in the week we saw other people walking the street looking confused.

Location: within 5 minutes walk of the beach with it's beachfront bars and restaurants. Similar distance to the Marina. Supermarket close by (3 mins)

Apartment: We had a studio apartment for 2. It was clean and comfortable. The kitchen area contained a kettle, toaster. coffee maker, microwave oven, two-ringed hob and all the pots,pans, crockery and cutlery you could need. There was a kitchen table and chairs. In the living area there was a sofa and coffee table and ample storage space. The bed was 2 singles pushed together - firm and comfortable. A smallish bathroom though everything worked as it should. There was a balcony with patio style furniture looking out over the gardens and pool.

Staff: All the staff we came in contact with were friendly and helpful, and we were given a map of the area on arrival.

One thing that previous posters have mentioned is noise. From our balcony you could see a local disco, and an open 'gathering area' which was well used in the early hours; we were also there when Spain played their first match of the Euro Tournament. There was also a builing site a couple of streets away so there was plenty of potential for noise, and you could hear some from the balcony - the apartment was well sound proofed though, and once inside with the door closed there was no disturbance from outside. The only noise problem we had was from inside the building - tiled floors in the corridors combine well with high heels! Also the apartment doors were almost impossible to close quietly. Still nothing that was a major problem.

recently returned from a four night stay in the alay apartments just wanted a cheap and cheerful break away wasnt expecting much for the price we paid but we were pleasantly suprised.the apartment over looked the pool and looked to be recently renovated it was spotless with towel change daily and two sheet changes.the pool area was basic but nice and quiet for the first two days but come the friday it was overtaking by gangs of stags and hens.woulds stay here again but if you were going for just a few days i would recomend going early or mid week .it is in an ideal location close to everything.

Room Tip: i would recommend a room with a pool view as the other side faces the road and is very noisy.

stayed here in may 2012 clean apartments nice swimming pool area but the noise at night keeps you awake with people shouting and banging and even some one coming into the room at 5am. The staff at the hotel did not seem concerned by this even though they could not provide us with a safety deposit box key as it had gone missing. would stay here again if not so noisy as it is in easy reah of marina and shops and beach.

Room Tip: get pool view

Just back from a 10 day stay at m s alay apartments.My wife and i realy enjoyed ourself the staff were very friendly the cleaners were great we met them most days and got towels and any thing else we wanted and also cleaned the room when it suited us .But the most important thing these apartments have is that while the complex was full there was plenty of space for everyone around the pool and green area let it be couples famlies with children or hens and stags everyone had their own privacy Would definitely stay there again
Cant go without saying how good the fresh rools were at the supermarket in the square every morning

Room Tip: poolview have sun in the morning roadside seaview have sun in the evening
