We (3 couples) have just returned from a11 nights stay at the apartments and i have to weigh up what we actually got for the £159.35 per couple for the 11 nights bed & breakfast. Firstly yes you do not get any utensils not even a kettle or toaster but that is why you get a breakfast thrown in. You can hire the kettles and toasters if you wish from reception at a reasonable price but we took cheapy £5.00 Tesco ones with us but let the delighted cleaners have them when we returned. As for plates knives & forks they don't mind you taking some from the breakfast room as long as you return them to the breakfast room before you leave (fair enough). As for the rooms we had a living room with 2 beds in it with the kitchen further in, then a bathroom and finally a bedroom with 2 single beds.You have a patio door out of the bedroom onto a tiny balcony about a Metre wide by 2 Metres long and we looked out onto the swimming pool area of the Canifor Hotel behind us. You have a fan on the wall in the living room area and one on the wall in the bedroom. You also have an air con unit in the bedroom but you have to pay 3 Euro per day for this if you want it , we did not use it but sometimes i wish we had paid for it as it can get very warm in the apartments even with the fans on full blast. We moved the mattresses about until we had the most comfortable of the four, as per previous reviews some of them are pretty worn out. Overall the rooms were cleaned every day by very cheerful cleaners and the towels changed when you wanted them, the reception staff were very friendly as well. We had perfect weather 34° most days, the bus station is 100 Mtrs down the road with plenty of restaurants close by. Across the road about 30 Mtrs away there are two bars close together. Firstly an expensive Murphy's Irish bar which the six of us went to on our first night but its run by a rude Maltese man no Irish and were promptly told it is 12.20pm you can have one drink then you must leave as i shut at 1pm and that means i am out of the door at 1pm none of us went back there again after that. The second bar is Simons Elvis bar which has an Elvis Presley theme but the hosts Simon & Josie were very friendly and had some good shows in the bar including a very good Elvis tribute guy on Mondays and Fridays even though i was not a fan of Elvis this guy was good. Lastly when we arrived at the airport we were ushered to a Taxi office of White taxis where we had to pay for two taxis (3 people in each) 25 Euro per taxi before you got in them to go to Qawra. Most of the way both drivers were on their mobile phones and hardly spoke to us. We asked Simon in the Elvis bar if he could organise our return taxi and we got a mini bus with a very friendly (Gino) the taxi driver for 30 Euro. It pays to ask around for your taxi back as i think you get ripped off at the airport. So to sum it all up for the money we paid for the apartments it worked out at just over £14.00 per couple per night and for what we got for the money we cannot complain it was very good value. Thank you to all the staff.
