“Lovely apartments great location”
Reviewed 30 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

The apartments were only opened in April this year so were still very new, fresh and stylishly fitted out. Pretty much everything you needed was there for you, probably the only thing missing in the actual apartment was a safe and a steam iron instead of a plain flat iron would have been appreciated but maybe that is being picky. The rooftop terrace was lovely but the inclusion of a small pool would have made it outstanding. Free car parking is available which was handy as we hired a car for a few days.The location is great with lots of bars and restaurants literally around the corner surrounding the harbour but don't think that means it's rowdy, it isn't. If you are looking for party central Marsascala isn't for you. The only downside on the apartment's location is that it is on quite a main road and the Maltese love their car horns so it could be a bit noisy at busy times.

We enjoyed very much our three day stay at Portside Lodge. Apartment had everything we needed for a short stay, even a washing machine. Restaurants were close by and good. It was very clean and modern. Hosts were very nice. Thank you again.

“EXCELLENT PLACE FOR ANYONE”

We want to let you know how much we enjoyed staying at apartment #104 this past September.
The staff from booking personnel, to reception and maintenance employees are SIMPLY AWESOME PROFESSIONALS. They treated each communication we had with utmost respect and efficiency. At the same time, it felt like they knew us and treated us like great friends.
The apartment itself was superbly clean and looked, felt and smelled fresh. Throughout the entire building there is a feel of upscale hospitality. Both decorations and necessary amenities were topnotch and in excellent condition. As seasoned travelers, we know what it feels like to find a dingy pot to cook a light meal. This apartment had a kitchen that invited us to feel right at home, cook, eat and be merry! The bedrooms had clean furniture, and mattresses that invited us to rest well. All linens (sheets and towels) were fresh looking and were professionally cleaned. All drapery was clean, thick and strong to keep the apartment cool in the day, and provided room darkening day or night.
The terraced roof and balconies were also a great place to relax. The apartment also had great cooling system with optional air-conditioning and/or fans. The washing machine in the bathroom was very useful to our family as we needed to wash our clothes often due to the hot weather.
The building has a great entry system via the front door or the garage. A top asset was the underground parking garage with electronic openers. It truly saved us precious time, and provided us with peace of mind that no matter what, we won’t need to hike home after finding a remote parking space (parking space is very limited around the island). There is an elevator in the parking garage that leads to every level of the building. This is super practical for carrying luggage, strollers etc.
The location of this apartment building is perfect and offers access to 2 great roads that lead you to explore the south of Malta. Although Marsaskala is at the South eastern tip of Malta, nothing in Malta is too far away. Meat and groceries are doorsteps away. Restaurants, bakeries and cafes are only walking distance away, and access to the entire island is easy, especially if you use GPS services.
Finally, I want to add that after we left the country we were contacted by the management regarding some sentimental souvenir items that we inadvertently left behind. We were deeply touched by the care of the staff to return our items before we even noticed. We will return to this place on our next visit to Malta.
We truly recommend this place as your top choice accommodation for your visit to Malta. Whether you are a family, a couple or young adults traveling together, we can assure you that this place will upgrade the quality of your visit to the island.

I recommend this place with pure heart. Staff was really helpful, the room was modern and very clean. Everything was within 10 minute walk.
If I visit Malta again I will stay at Portside Lodge for sure.

Very nice, clean and modern place just like the above pictures show. Everything you might need is within 10min walk from the apartment. Everyone in Portside Lodge was very helpful and with fluent english so there were no communication problems. We decided to rent a car from a place Aislynn recommended - it worked out very well, we have also visited a restaurant recommended by her ( Tal Familja ) and it was amazing ! The only downside i can think of is that our room was overlooking the back of the restaurant and while we didn't mind the view, the smell was rather annoying.

“I wish we could stay longer”

We came late at night, some food and water was waiting for us in the fridge.

Place is nice and clean, fully equipped (iron, towels, tv, wifi, air conditioning, garage, elevator etc).
There is arranged rooftop where you can spend time (artificial grass, sunbeds, chairs, flowers, nice view)
Bay is 100 meters away and there are some nice restaurants.

When we left, we forgot to leave garage door pilot, there was no problem in leaving it on the airport, Aislynn took care of that issue.
We had great experience, people were very nice and helpful.
I wish we could stay longer

“Great place for good holidays”
Reviewed 4 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We been there 2 weeks with my family (2 year old kid)and we liked it very much!Place is new, clean, good location (10 min walk to the sea, 2 min walk to shop and cafe, bars and bus stop) Everything there been in very good condition (only thing I would recommend to add is dryer for plates, that you don't need to dry them with paper all the time) It has very nice terrace (a bit too hot there in the day time as everywhere in the august) and parking for car (if you want to see Malta is the best to rent a car) Its a family hotel and we had a chance to meet the owner very very nice and friendly one!!All the people there been helping us all the time and we felt like at home. If you want to have relaxing holidays with kids is the best place!I hope to go there again!
