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

Stayed at the Porto del sol for 7nights while in Malta doing our padi course with aquatica dive centre. The apartment did the job but wouldn't come back... It's out the way to the town that has night life 15euros in a cab or can get the 221 bus for 1.50 outside across the road but finished at 9:53 so... More

We had originally booked 6nights however we had to change these dates to a shorter stay. The staff were lovely and changed the dates for us with no problem. The accommodation was as expected, quite spacious and good for what we were paying for. All round good accommodation. The only issue was it was a bit out the way, trying... More

Staff were very helpful and accommodating. Particularly Denise - nothing was to much trouble and so friendly and kind. Made extra arrangements for my friends birthday when we had dinner in the restaurant.

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

Dear Sir, Following our formal address to your complaint via your travel agent, here is a summary of our reply: 1. The guests requested a change of room on arrival not because it was unclean but because it was too big for just the two of them. If they were unhappy with the room, we could have offered alternative rooms... 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
