We stayed in the summer of 2018 and were here during the festival of St Maria. The streets were decorated, fireworks going off all of the time. Great view of them from the roof terrace.
We went on a trip to see the main fireworks display of the festival. Avoid if you don't like big crowds. We didn't get back to the hotel until 2am. This display put all of the millennium displays in the shade. Awesome display. The Maltese certainly know how to do a fireworks display.
Great to sit outside for breakfast and watch the world go by in the morning.More
