Sundown Court Leisure Resort

Reviewed 23 November 2013

This is very much a no-frills kind of place that is very clean but basic, not at all scenic and a long way from anything interesting. Stayed here in November for work and it was nice and quiet: not sure what it would be like in summer. The flats have big balconies which is a plus but the furnishing is horrible (pvc sofas, 70's bathrooms). Bus services to Valletta and walking distance to Sliema and the shops in San Gwann (but the traffic is a nightmare and it would be too far to walk in the hot weather). Bring mosquito repellent (yes even in November) and stock up on basic supplies at Lidl in San Gwann. There is no internet in the rooms and even in the lobby it was intermittent.

Room Tip: Ask for a 1st or 2nd floor apartment that faces the tennis courts but that is not close to the swimm...

The last rank is justified - it is a very neglected facility missing updates of any fashion for the last 15-20 years. The 2 good-hearted employees can't make up for the bad quality of rooms (furniture falling apart, mould, low-level interior, loads of mosquitos), the impertinent-dilettante service (they charged me 5,- to use the pool, bar opens when the owner feels like), the uncomfortable location. Lots of better choices available in Malta!

From the pictures on their website it looks lovely but that was in the 80's. It's location is terrible, it is very isolated and public transport is not suitable for a young family with buggies. Crossing the main road on the way to Sliema (which on the website is only a minutes walk away…if you are flying) is taking your life and that of your children into your own hands. We had to hire a car in order to get anywhere. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment that was smelly and had a dirty shower curtain in the shower. Our cooker broke on the second day and there was very little satisfaction to be got from management. Another thing, we had to pay up front on the first night we arrived and we were offered no refund even though we wanted to leave a day earlier than our due departure date.
I would not recommend this place to anyone (even though it is cheap, you end up paying more to get away from the place)

They claim to have CCTV, when in fact it is just an intercom service so they can see their deliveries. Rooms are not secure and the safes are even worse. Staff and management don't care and are very unhelpful. Had to cut holiday short. Please, please DO NOT use.

I thought Sundown courght was a lovely place to stay, it had lovely views and facilities. The two pools were lovely and inbetween them there was a childrens play area. The grounds were beautiful filled with flowers and plants. The rooms were very big and cool. The meals at the restaurant were lovely but the bar was disappointing the staff there were not very polite and happy and charged different prices each time drinks and snacks were purchased. Also there was rotten tomato inside one of the sandwiches which was unacceptable. The only thing i would change about sundown court, is to get new people in to franchise the restaurant/bar area and putting a hotel shop to buy essentials for those who self-cater and postcards etc.
