“Second Visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

My son a friend and I have just come back from a week at the Sunny Coast, this is our second visit, we had a great time, the apartment was excellent, a twin bedroom, double room and two pull down sofas in the main room, a well equipped kitchen, plenty of hot water at all times, housekeeping was good, reception was always very helpful, our balcony had a sea view which was lovely, the only problem was the air con, still much to noisy, but would certainly stay here again.

Just got back from a 5 day stay at the Sunny Coast Resort. The pictures making it looking better than it is, bedrooms need updating after being offered 5 rooms we settled on one that we thought fitted what we expected. The only room that had any sort of window was the second/twin roomed bedroom and in many the balcony was to small to sit on.

The Sunny Coast was mainly time share and rooms were offered to visitors when not in use again not what it say on the brochure.

The staff were great friendly and always willing to help.

Check what you want before you book.

Room Tip: Make sure you ask for a room overlooking the main entrance that way you should get your sea view.

Recently spent the week with husband and two adult grandchildren who were treated royally by the staff. We were pleasantly surprised at what a nice condo we had--and especially that the staff was so outstanding. They went out of their way to make our stay a great experience. From the minute we walked in, everyone was so helpful and friendly. They changed us to a larger condo, gave us directions, were always smiling and nice. The night manager was especially accommodating to the kids. Having traveled extensively, we have to say that we have never been treated better. We are from the USA. Thank you to the staff for making this experience with our grandchildren so great.

Room Tip: We loved the two-bedroom and it did have a partial view of the ocean. Very quiet on second floor.

Nice stay for a week in half term. The area itself is a bit grotty but you can find some nice places nearby. The room was clean and well maintained and we were lucky with a sea view. The staff were helpful and friendly in general. The swimming pool and spa is not directly on site but a short walk across the road. The facilities were a bit dated but generally ok. This facility is not used exclusively by the hotel so not sure how busy it would be in the height of summer. The food in the restaurant was not the best and some of the dishes on the Maltese platter had a unusual fermented tang. Easy access to bus routes which we used all week.

I recently spent a couple of weeks at Sunny Coast and was made to feel most welcome. The apart hotel is well equipped with a lovely and reasonably priced restaurant on site if you do not feel like cooking. The views over the bay were beautiful. The staff were very helpful - the hotel is very handy for the buses but I decided to hire a car to explore more widely. Staff arranged this for me and also helped me with some other quests. There is a mini market on site and other shops and restaurants within easy walking distance. I was in a two bedroom unit which was very comfortable. There is a swimming pool and spa for chilling out after a hard day´s exploring. There is so much to see on this wonderful island. I will definitely be back!

Room Tip: I travelled early May and had a room at the front overlooking the bay - the view was beautiful - alt...

After cleaning the rooms the cleaner left our room smelling like smoke (not sure why).
Building works at the pool made sunbathing and swimming unenjoyable.
The pool was freezing cold so nobody went in it.
On our first night we had a cockroach come out of the bathtub and found another 2 by the end of our visit.
In the corner of one of the rooms in the vent was a birds nest. This woke us all up at 5 every morning by the birds calling. They had obviously put paper in there to sort this but just caused them to make a nest.
Two of the receptionists were really pleasant however one was really rude.
There were not enough towels for all of us and on one occasion there was lipstick on the towel.
They said they would replace the toilet role as we were running low however we were never given anymore toilet roles.
The automatic doors and lift doors did not have a sensor so my sister was left with a black bruise from being caught in between the doors. It was very funny though!!
The location was not near any of the main sights however I would recommend the sight seeing bus that takes you around. The hop-on-hop-off was great for taking you around!
The was no air conditioning in the rooms but it was too noisy for the window to be open due to building works and birds.
The one night we went to the hotel restaurant we experienced very rude service from the staff. The restaurant owner told us we should have ordered one pizza because we left waste and she hates waste. When offering pudding 'sweets' she then said that we shouldn't have any but she had to ask. We were not impressed with the food either.
Overall it was very disappointing but made us stay out as long as possible! Chaplin's next door is amazing!!!

After a very short stay at the Sunny Coast, It totally changed my perception towards it... I would of never imagined the excellent service, quality and affordability in this newly refurbished resort! The room had a perfect sea view, with well dressed curtains, that can give you complete darkness if desired.. perfect for a good nap on a sunny afternoon. Staff are so friendly, and a "service with a smile" would really apply at the Sunny Coast. Lunch at their indoor restaurant "Village Square" was fabulous, with that local "kick" to enhance the experience. The spa... Oh the spa, so relax-oriented, with well-trained staff to ensure a positive relaxation experience.
An overall blast!
