“16 years later”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2013

Arrived late evening on 23/04/13 and were shown to our apartment by the lovely Antilda. Our first holiday in Malta was 16 years ago and we stayed in the shamrock, loved it then and although we have holidayed in Malta lots of times since, until now we have been unable to stay there again as it is so popular. We were staggered when not only did she remember us, she could remember our old room number ... amazing. The apartments are exactly as we remembered them , huge and very clean. Probably one of the best located apartments in Bugibba ... situated in a quiet residential street it is whisper quiet at night but only a few minutes walk from pubs,shops and many great places to eat. We are returning to the Shamrock again in June and September this year... it is our kind of place ...

Just returned from a month at the Shamrock. We had a very very lazy holiday and enjoyed our stay there. Its in a quiet spot but so close to everything one needs on a s/c holiday.We enjoyed watching the (ex)wheat fields being mowed and then the stuff being rolled into bales for fodder.

They are basic flats but they suited us......and they are cleaned once a week so weekly stays would not be noticed. It was nice not to be interrupted every day by maid service. If thats what you want then go to more expensive luxury flats .

A most enjoyable relaxing stay.

Room Tip: Looking out over the fields is very quiet no noise aprt from cars driving in and out by locals.

We stayed at the Shamrock aprtments in Bugibba in October 2012 for the school half term. We flew from Bournemouth with Ryanair which was brilliant. Half an hour from home no delays.

We arrived at the apartments, we were shown to our apartment which was a 2 bed apartment on the second floor. It was very spacious but in need of some TLC. Large crack in patio doors taped up !, Rusty patches on bath covered with silicone, cooker, one of the rings was faulty so knob was taped up so we didn't use it !
( Dangerous) Husband is an electrician in the UK and was concerend about the cooker. The apartments are clean on arrival, but you have to do your own cleaning, there is no maid service. The apartments are in a cul de sac with a car park opposite and next to blocks of residential flats the locals live in so your balcony view is of their car park with old cars and work vans ! Beyond the car park is a large field that we were told in the summer is full of wheat growing, in the winter however it is a large wasteland that the locals use for walking their dogs and using as a dog poo area |! Really nice when you are eating your breakfast on the balcony on your holiday! It is cheap and cheerful and quite safe. Roof top pool was best aprt of the apartments although it was freezing, nice suntrap.

Two minute walk from the main strip tourist street in Bugibba. There are two lovely restaurants opposite each other just round the corner from the apartments. They both do a really great value three course meals with choice of starters, mains and deserts for around 13 euros each, even thed rinks are quite reasonable a nice bottle of rose wine was around 7 euors and a bottle of Bud 1 euro 50 cents. Weather was quite warm and enjoyable, warm enough to sunbathe. Car hire varies, so woudl recommend hiring from the UK.

Room Tip: Request an apartment at the back of the apartments you get a view of the rooftops of Bugibba but you...

We were 5 of us stay in Shamrock apartment .Although the apartment is fairy basic but you got all your basic need,simple and effective.I must admit the bed in the apartment they are not comfortable ,it keep making a funny noise as you turn but apart from that we had a lovely stay.The owner Antilda and her son Robert always happy to help .Our oven in the apartment wasn't working but the problem was solved after we asked.If we are going back to Malta again I would definitely book Shamrock apartment.

Spent a week here with my boyfriend. We booked here because the price was so reasonable and were a little apprehensive but it was absolutely brilliant. From start to finish the owners were really helpful and friendly. The apartment was really really big and spotlessly clean. The kitchen had everything you'd need for making a simple meal, the living area was spacious with a small tv (lots of channels and Wifi also good) and the bedroom had plenty of storage. We didn't use the pool but it looked nice with plenty of sun loungers. My only complaint would be that the bed was a little on the hard side but I got used to it by the end of the week! The location is very convenient for getting around, the bus station is a short walk as is the sea, lots of bars and restaurants. In fact two of the best restaurants are literally around the corner, La Sorpressa and Flora Asian restaurant. Would highly recommend these apartments to anyone.

In the days just before Ash Wednesday, Carnival takes place in Malta and I had never seen it before. I decided to try a last minute booking. I had some Air Miles with Air Malta and they were very accommodating so all I needed was somewhere to stay. I went straight to Trip Adviser and found the Shamrock Apartments in Bugibba with really good reviews and so I called them. The front of house of this family business is run by mother and son, Antida & Robert Sammut. Although their main apartments were fully occupied with long winter stays, they had something else available in a neighbouring road which they kindly offered to me for the five days of my trip. Bugibba is not the easiest of towns to drive around but a quick mobile call brought Antida on to the main road to find me and guide me to the apartment. It was fantastic; large with two comfortable bedrooms and a more than adequate modern kitchen, dining room and lounge. Both Antida & Robert made sure that I had everything that I needed for my stay. I did not have a chance to see the rooms in the Shamrock block but if they were anything like the accommodation I had, no one would have complained. This is a business that really does know the importance of Customer Service; I can't rate it highly enough.

Room Tip: Bugibba is one of the two main tourist areas in Malta the other being Paceville. Both have multi-sc...

we've been here twice and can honestly say this is the nicest self catering place ive ever stayed in. stayed as a family and a couple, antida is lovely and remembered me from the year before, she even remembered what apartment i stayed in previously. as for the apartments, we were shocked by how big, and clean the place is! 2 bedrooms, a large kitchen, dining area, and even a living area with 2 big balconies. perfect for a long trip! the roof top is lovely to sunbathe on and the pool area is good too. could not fault it. excellently priced and excellent location. right in the heart of bugibba!! could not recomment more.
