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

Yes indeed the guesthouse is situated on a mainroad and sometimes it may get noisy. The benefit of this however is that you have easy access to the bus stops and a nice view. Some rooms are available with aircondition, and the option to book a room with aircondition at a cost was available. Given that there has been a... More

We have been going to Porto del Sol on our holidays to Malta for many years now, it is a lovely place and the staff and owners feel like friends now. The food is amazing, we recommend the Maltese fish stew (aljotta) and the Beef Olives but everything is really nicely cooked and presented. The view from the restaurant is... More

I stayed at the Porto del Sol apartments over Christmas and New Year, 2012/2013. The first thing I noticed on arrival was the wonderful view over St Paul's Bay. The studio was on the first floor above the restaurant so the view was probably even better from higher floors. The apartments are comfortably furnished, holiday style, adequate kitchen equipment, beds... More

Thanks for your positive comments. I’m sorry for the hot water problem, it was just a geezer which went faulty, and this was replaced soon after you left. In these situations we offer an alternative room to tackle the problem and prevent any inconvenience. Yes, some rooms are now equipped with airconditioners and it is advisable for people to book...
