My husband & I stayed at Aqua for 2 months February & March
We chose this apartment mainly because of the location and it did not disappoint it has a million dollar view looking over St Paul's Bay and the promenade that leads to all of the shops ,restaurants & cafés on route to Bugibba Square is only minutes away
The apartment itself is well equipped which we appreciated as we like to cook most of our meals as well going out to local restaurants
There was nothing missing as far as furnishings go and the couch's and beds were comfortable anyone can see by the pics it is tastefully decorated
Our hosts Paul, Josanne,& Nathaniel were wonderful!, and catered to our every need and were very pleasant to deal with, even when we locked our selves out Josanne had the solution in minutes
They were at our beck and call 24 hrs a day if needed which was very reassuring
I read a review about the curtains needing to be updated and I agree they could be but it certainly did not do anything to dampen our stay
We had .a landline at our disposal as well as wifi, washer & dryer and private elevator that opened into the kitchen, living room
This was very convenient when carrying bags of groceries as you would have to walk up 4 flights of stairs
Having a barbecue was also a bonus
Wish there was a little more sun on the terrace but it is winter time ,I'm sure there is plenty in the summer
Waking up each day to that beautiful view was fantastic
Hope to return to Malta and would definitely stay here again

We wish to thank these guests from Canada for having stayed with us and also for having taken the time to write such a wonderful review. It was a pleasure to have this couple for the winter months of February and March, and despite the weather (which is not always kind, although Malta does boast of 299 days of sunshine a year), we're glad to know that they had a great time and would also consider returning back to Malta.

As the guests rightly mentioned, we do have a fixed (free) telephone line in the apartment (as we do in all our other apartments) so the guests can reach us when and if they wish. We understand that going on holiday in a foreign land that there will be requests and questions but we always try to make ourselves available to answer promptly but more importantly to act immediately as we believe that all our guests deserve the best service.

Our attempts to fix the curtains have demonstrated that we cannot be experts in everything (this business does however teach you to be a hands-on person) and so we are now giving this work to more experienced people (who have informed us that it is the rails that need replacing, something that is being done over the next couple of weeks).

We also love to take in the view whenever we need to visit the apartment - it is really breath-taking, almost like being on a cruise liner in a port, but we prefer to hear our guests comment on this instead.

Once again, thank you for the lovely thoughts and our best wishes to the both of you.

Paul, Josanne & Nathaniel

“St Paul's Bay Duplex, Malta”
Reviewed 2 January 2014 for a stay in November 2013

person found this review helpful

We stayed for three weeks in the Aqua duplex apartment in St. Paul's Bay, Malta. The apartment is situated overlooking the spectacular St. Paul's Bay, in a very quiet residential street. The views from the large windows in the lounge and the first floor give breathtaking, uninterrupted views of the bay, over to Xemxija and beyond. The apartment is reached via a lift which opens directly in the apartment. Very luxurious! The apartment is spacious, over two floors and was very comfortable for us during our stay, very convenient for local restaurants and shops, yet with very quiet surroundings. Unfortunately the apartment was let down by the standard of some of the decoration - noticeably the curtains, bedding (pillows were very stained) and some of the paintwork. However, as it was the end of the season we guessed that some updating would be done over the quieter period.

We thank the guests for having stayed with us during November and for having posted their review.

We had ourselves been away for a month (long overdue), and only arrived back in Malta 2 days after the arrival of these guests. For this reason we had not seen the guests but provided them with all contact details, both ours and those of our assistants. We are sorry we did not know about the pillows before but we have in the meantime replaced these (although normally these are also equipped with pillow protectors apart from the usual pillow slip). As the guests pointed out, the touch-up paintwork has been completed after a very busy time spanning from March to the end of these guests' stay in late November.

Once again we thank the guests and wish them a wonderful new year.
