Diamond Resorts have some apartments within the Intercontinental Hotel at St. Juliens. We stayed there for 2 weeks in May 2014. St. Juliens is a very noisy area and in hindsight maybe we should have taken heed of some of the reviews prior to departure! But the Intercon Hotel staff were really pleasant and very helpful, even though staying at a Diamond Resort we were not really their guests. I guess the main downside was the apartment was a bit disappointing both in layout and design. The electrical units and sockets (see my photo) have to be seen to be believed!!!! We could get wifi as long as you went out onto the balcony. As other reviewers have mentioned it's quite a trek to get the the apartments requiring at least 2 different lifts. The aircon chucked out a lot of dust/dirt, I ended up with a hacking cough which may or may not have been caused by the aircon.
We enjoyed our holiday but no way near as good as other resorts we have stayed at such as Tenerife. As for Malta itself I think they are suffering from post EU blues. Strikes me they regret joining the EU and certainly regret joining the Euro. Due to the lousy exchange rate they got at the time of joining they lost 35% of their wealth.
Had some fabulous meals in Malta but it ain't cheap!
