The hotels rooms over look a bay , called Pretty Bay , we went out of season end of Feb and it wasn't busy at all . We loved the fact that our Balcony was made of glass and looked over a lovely Beachy Bay that are very few and far between in Malta .At the side of the Hotel was a large square with childrens play area and seating next to the beach . Just a short walk away was ST Georges bay , filled with lovely colourful little boats , The Hotel was very modern , food and drinks downstairs very good and reasonable , the bar and reception staff were lovely , In fact all Maltese people were lovely , spoke great English , Being only 3 star , it had no hairdryer , safe , and the beds were meant to be changed every 3 days , and this was my only gripe , the first cleaners were rubbish , by day 5 bed still not changed , and wasn't cleaned well at all , then my Husband asked to get it all done , and it was by a different cleaner , she was 100% better. ., but the hotel was in a great spot with the bus stop next to it . For 1Euro 50 cents , you can bus ride anywhere all day long . We used the airport , and Valletta , as the main bus terminals , and from these places you can go anywhere . We found a cheap bar that was very friendly , lots of xpats go in , , great service , opposite church in Birzebbuga centre , also we loved a little food station , so cheap it was on the road just up from the hsbc bank ,called Hot Spot , yummy pizza ans sausage rolls to die for , better than the restaurant's , we loved getting a takeaway and eating it on our veranda at night ,we had a lovely Chinese from over the road above renos , watching the lit up container ships coming and going . We loved this little town , and Malta , this place is so easy to get to , 20 mins from the airport and a different side to the very touristy place , but just a buss ride from everywhere .We went to Valleta on the bus , it was superb , and we went from there to Sliema ,loved this place , it had great shops , fab promenade and bars , it also had boat trips from here to Gozo Island and also to Sicily for the Day , We also visited Valletas carnival , and the Blue grotto via the airport by bus , all a must to visit . I would defo stay here again , and would recommend it to anyone , would like to go maybe when its just a tad warmer next time , one last thing if you go in winter , Black jeans , jumpers , tshirts ,boots ,warm cardi , fleece any thing black is all you need , and a nice pair of sunglasses . Also forget hiring a car , bus service to anywhere is fabulous
