I was volunteering on an archaeological dig and needed to be close to Ghajn Tuffieha along a very particular bus route. This is not the kind of place I would normally stay but I was pleasantly surprised. While simple and basic, the views from the upper floors are beautiful, the area is quiet and the buses are convenient to anywhere... More

We were upgraded to a very nice apartment as it was our wedding anniversary, very lucky (before school holidays) ! Location overlooking the harbour was fantastic and in a nice quiet part, although the road is in front you soon get used to it. Everything in apartment was great. The food in the restaurant was fantastic. Perfect for our short... More

We stayed in a one bedroom apartment for two weeks in June 2015. We do not expect 5 star facilities for the excellent value price paid. We found our one bedroom apartment to be much more spacious than the previous photos had led us to imagine. We were pleased to find the apartment had both a full cooker and fridge... More

very helpful and polite staff. A must is to eat here the food is of a high standard and the service is exceptional. The views from the balcony are breath taking the best on the Island. All rooms have balcony views so you will not be disappointed. The rooms are basic but have a fridge, hob, kettle and optional air... More

You know when you read reviews about a hotel that you're due to visit and it fills you with dread which turns out to be unfounded; well this is one of them. I read some comments that made me feel like I was stying in a Sally Army Hostel. Couldn't be further from the truth. Clean, ceiling mounted fan (A/C... More

Dont expect to get 5 star hotel if you pay budget prices! That being said the place is nice, rooms are big enough, clean, kitchenette is more than enough to prepare simple meals, the balcony offers a great view of the bay. The only downsides which should be adressed are towels which are old and rough becuase of being washed... More

This was our 4th time back at the apartments. Lovely and clean, gradually being updated and renovated since our last trip, serene, beautiful, tranquil setting overlooking Xemxija Bay which living inland we could sit and look at for a week without needing to do anything ! Very quiet village this time, which surprised us, although the traffic seemed busier at... More

Please note: this is situated in St Paul's Bay, Xemxija - NOT Bugibba. Stayed here in 2014 and loved the views over the bay and countryside. The apartment was basic but spacious and needed some tlc but was good value for money. We were happy enough to re-book for this year and stayed in one of the re-furbished apartments (large... More
