Xemxija Hill is away from the heart of St Paul's Bay and is the better for it. It is a small community full of friendly people and Porto Del Sol apartments fit this atmosphere perfectly. We arrived in the early hours and our key was left in a safe place for us so we could let ourselves in without disturbing... More

I am a seasoned traveller and Self Caterer and this has to be to worst I have encountered. Minimally equipped - old and tired equipment and furnishings - mildewed walls and rusty cooking rings - no clothes washing or drying facilities - archaic rental TV facility. I could go on and on and run the risk of overdoing things. In... More

My husband and I eat at this restaurant every time we go to Malta. This is a family run restaurant with that special touch of Maltese hospitality that is so welcoming. The food is superb and the outside eating space adds to the ambience. The service is first class and a special mention must be made to Jessica who is... More

We came into the hotel to eat on the little patio area outside and wanted something a bit special. Seeing lobster on the menu made us decide to eat there. We were really early walking in at about 11:45 and the restaurant wasn't really open or ready for us but the lovely staff said it was fine and sat us... More

This is a small friendly, family run, sef-catering Guest House. It's excellent location overlooking St Paul's Bay and the countryside is hard to beat. If you have a car, there doesn't seem to be any problem with parking, if you prefer public transport, the local buses stop outside. The accomodation is spacious with all rooms enjoying balconies and those lovely... More

Porto del Sol combines a very good restaurant on the ground floor with a so-so apartment block above. This review refers only to the apartment which we had for 9 nights and not the restaurant. A point to bear in mind is that the apartment was very reasonably priced, so that in fairness the criticisms I make must be balanced... More
