“Paradise on Earth”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2013

After so many months of hard work, I was looking forward to unplug. I planned a trip around Europe, and a friend suggested my girlfriend to visit Malta, out of all places. I never received a better advise. I came across this place by chance, but was the best choice I made.
The apartments are nicely furbished, and the kitchen are quite well equipped. Not to mention the BBQ area! Just ask the owners and they shall hint you everything you need... from the best place to buy the meat and will easily provide you the equipment needed to have a great night.
The place is really quiet, and the only thing I regret was to leave this paradise.
Coming from a huge city like Hong Kong, my girlfriend loved particularly the clear night sky and the silence which sometimes is so intense that it makes you feel outside this world.
This is really the best place to relax.

Room Tip: The place has two main types of rooms... the ones on the ground floor have pool access and the ones...

Really couldn't wait to get to this beautiful place to read books by the pool & rest. First impressions it was great. However there where a lot of rules. One of these rules was to switch all electricity off if you leave the appartment, undrstandable we thought. Popped to the local shop for bread and milk first morning, maybe out 15mins. Had left the ceiling fan on as it was 35 degrees. When we came back the owner had been in our apartment and switched the fan off. There where lots of times that the owner went into our room when we where not there, without being invited or saying hehad been in.. Felt uncomfortable like we where being watched all the time. It advertises T.V., that didn't work much & when it did only 2 channels worked, one of those was pop music. The towels where only changed once not twice as advertised. One morning you could not use the pool as it was being cleaned. Wi-fi was not available in the apartment at all, could only be picked up in the far corner of the pool room. We opend a curtain there at night to look out, a soon as we moved someone would come and close it even if we had just popped into the apparment for something. The hall entrance never had a light on so you had to pat the wall untill you found a switch which turned a light on but it went of again before you could turn your key if you where not quick enough. The phone which was on high rang loud & regulary at 12 am. You are only allowed one key so if you wanted to do seprate things it had to be worked out who might be back 1st. The place is as the end of the town but it is a very busy road for the farming area so not quiet at night or early morning. The hot water tank had to be put on each day or you didn't have any. It took 3hrs to heat up. The BBQ is not on the property but behind the big 15 foot wall & cannot be used without permission. Staff where aloof at all times. They advertise a bar but it never opened. Never found the advertised mossy net. Parking is not easy as the road outside is busy and full of parked cars already. There is space at the side of he place but the owner has it chained off so you cant use it. The nearest bus stop to anywhere is 15mins walk away. The nearest shop a good 30mins walk. Thankfully it wasn't busy so we had a sun lounger by the pool each as there are only 6 in total. You cannot play music except if you have headphones & keep them on very low, nor can you have an outside light on after 11pm so you then had to go inside to read or chat. It is a very clean place but could do with updating. The sofa & bamboo chair where both damaged. I would only recommned this place to stay for much older people who dont want to use the internet, can see in the dark, go to bed early and dont want to watch the news.

Room Tip: If you do choose to stay here choose apartment 1 or 2 as anything else you have to go out the front...

The apartment was spacious and comfortable, quite clean and the kitchen was well-equipped.
The hosts are friendly and helpful.
I had a pleasant stay with my boyfriend for a week. It was really a relaxing place. I enjoyed specially the sauna and the swimming pool!!
I think we had the right choice!!
