“Lovely apartment, safe and clean”
Reviewed 23 August 2010

We recently stayed at these apartments and would(and have) recommend these to anyone visiting Malta. The apartment was really clean and lots of room for all 4 of us, which is a definate must with 2 boys. As it's not on the promenade it was lovely and peaceful in the evenings. The shops are close by as well as the bus stops. The pool was great for the children and we had absolutely no safety concerns with the pool or apartment. The family were always helpful and friendly! They have CCTV on each level, which helps you feel more secure. I will definitely visit again! Great value for money.

We found these apartments through the reviews on Tripadvisor. When we arrived we were greeted by Andita and shown through the premises, which were clean,roomy and comfortable. The location was close to everything that being shops,bars,and restaurants.One restaurant that is a must is La Sopresa very good indeed. Another thing I found with most restaurants here is they do feed you, so be wary if having 3 courses.In Bugibba we noticed a big problem with dog droppings the owners don't like to clean up ,so be careful where you step. Also it is best to have the right change for the bus drivers if using their transport.The local supermarkets are good they stock virtually everything and the prices are reasonable. But back to our accommodation we could not complain about it ,you can get picky but that is according to what you want to spend,Andita and family, made my family,my parents and I very welcomed, I have no hesitation in Recommending this place.

we stayed at the shammrock apartments for 3months and totally enjoyed our stay the owners .antida and her family are very friendly and are always there to help if you need it.the apartment was very spacious and clean .your bedding and towels was changed once a week and your apartment cleaned also . you have 2 balconys which are a very nice size plenty of room to sit out on. and one to air your washing on. we had a telly which was quite good viewing a couple of good movie channels in english so if you dont want to go out some nights at least the tellys ok.there is also internet if you want to take your laptop with you ,of course you have to pay for the connection which you would have to sort out with robert.the telly is free if you are staying for more than a month but its 2 euros 50 a day otherwise. if you use the bottled water they sell it and kindly offer to bring it to your room for you ,it saves carrying it from the shops. the roof has a swimming pool and a great view of st pauls bay, plenty of sun loungers to sit and relax in on a sunny day, the apartments are a 5minute walk to shops and restaurants ,and if you like the night life there are quite a few pubs to pick from.i would recommend the shammrock apartments.and are looking forward to going back

Very Clean and bright good basic and large 2 bedroom apartment about 200yds from the bus station and all the shops you would need within 5 min walk. The sea front downhill about 250yds away.
We have just returned from 2 weeks there. The owners live on the ground floor and are as others have said I can confirm are very helpful and attentive.
The apartments are just off the main shopping and "live" areas and as such are protected from the noise and bustle just down the road. Free car parking out the front.
They have very high ceilings and would probably be good at keeping cold in the summer.Ther is no air con or central heating. A ceiling fan in one bedroom and a wall fan in the other. For the winter/other months there is a 2kw oil filled radiator on wheels provided. We found this sufficient when were there. Electricity is included in the price you pay on holiday(long term lets it is not)There is a balcony in both the lounge and one bedroom both u can sit out on.
The walls are breeze block(single) and you CAN hear other apartments. We were fortunate and had good neighbours although on several mornings a young child had a bouncing football above and it was annoying!
One or two points to remember. The apartment comes with basic "get u started items"
That is to say one toilet roll in the holder and one plastic bin liner in the rubbish bin. No washing up liquid or disinfectant. You provide everything you need.
Bed linen and towels are changed weekly(every 7 days) If you opt for the TV at extra cost 2.50 euros per day then you get about 5 english channels + some Italian ones! BBC entertainment,Sky News,MBC(film channel) LUXE TV(how the other half live!)Fox Movies(film channel)+ the Italian ones some have English movies on with subtitles.
Although the water out of the tap is OK to drink it DOES have a "taste" to it even when boiled for a cuppa so the local shops do a very good trade in bottled water. It is relativly cheap to buy but I would suggest to include this in your budget 5ltr bottle= 1.33Euros (price March 10) at the local supermarket up the road(Trolees)
On the subject of food remember Malta is Euro and the mark up/exchange is pants.
Prices in the local supermarket as follows : 1/2 fat milk 1ltr=.72euro Multigrain loaf=1.53euro, frozen chips Mcain 2kg bag=4.85euro, Apricot jam=1.89euro, Marmalade=2.70euro, frozen plaice (boxed iceland label printed on @£1.50)=5.35euros!
Utterly Butterly 500g=2.03euros.Just a selection of the prices in March 2010
Although the Fish @ Chip shop about 50yds away has Cod@Chips for 4.50 euros (very good)
Just a small but significant point in our flat (probably the same in all) I have a nice 1" burn to my right hand having touched the mixer tap spout in the kitchen having just run hot water. The hot water is scalding after a few seconds as there is a "instant heater" under the sink in the cupboard. The taps and the spouts retain the heat!
Travel around the Island with Buggiba as a base is great. The bus stn appears to be the treminus for this part of the island. Malta is divided into 3 Zones> Around Valetta is one zone further out is a second Zone and the top of the Island near Gozo is the third. Every time u cross a Zone u pay more. But the cost is trival! Buggiba to Valetta = 2 zones .54 cents single Around Valteea 1 zone=.47 cents single. Very cheap for long distances but just one bus stop is still the same basic fare(.47cents)
Transfer from the airport is expensive prices varied but about 18 euros each way.
Car hire is very cheap in relative terms to europe. I hired a small Huyndai Altos roller skate from Active Car Hire for 133 euros for 14days including airport pick up/return good service no complaints recommended by Shamrock.
Petrol for the car is on par with us and the same price everywhere.
Beware there roads NEVER complain about our potholes until u have gone to Malta!
Also the locals identify u as a car hire driver (the 3rd letter in the hire cars number plate`s are all K) and aim at u or pull out in front of you just because...!
Sorry It has been a essay Hope it helps u all
Shamrock is a very good place to stay!

Arriving in the middle of the night I found a very friendly service and a big clean apartment. Situated in a small quiet street, but only a few minutes walk to Quawra Center, pub´s, restaurant and the sea. The apartments are worth the price and the best alternative to the small hotel rooms you you find in Malta normally.
