If you like to be pushed and trampled in the street where is a lot of drunk people be my guest. If you are trying to go to the bar it will not end well. You can not hear anything and you will lose your friends. Awful place. Do not go alone if you are woman because there are several men who are looking for women who are alone and abuse them. Be super careful. Best not to go there at all. Nastiest and ugliest place in Malta.

As I was staying in Sliema for my holiday in Malta, I wanted to check out Paceville as everyone was talking about it as *the* place to be Friday night.

Oh. My. God this place is a sh*thole, for several reasons.
On the 'strip' there are several types of establishments, but an overload of 'Gentleman's Clubs' AKA strip clubs. Outside there are below-average looking women literally grabbing you by the arm trying to drag you into the club, and convince you to buy them drinks.

Shady establishment after shady establishment. In between the Gentleman's Clubs there are a few nightclubs, with *huge* queues outside, I have heard of people waiting for two hours. The clientele seemed... suspiciously young. Fake IDs are rampant here.

I worked my way down and found a slightly more civilised bar in Hugo's Pub. Finally I could sit down, grab a drink without being disturbed - I thought.

Due to COVID one is not allowed to order by the bar, so you sit down at the time, scan the QR code and then someone will come and serve you.

I waited more than 10 minutes, no one came. I therefore left and went to another, similar establishment. Exactly the same happened.

Shocked by this hellhole of an uncultured place, I ordered a bolt back to Two Pillows. Drowning myself in the sea was tempting, but thankfully the taxi arrived quickly so I could leave this cesspool - never to come back.

Malta in general has become one of the worst, polluted and dirty places to visit! I will never recommend anyone to spend vacations in Malta and precisely to St. Julian’s paceville, strange and dirty place with garbage and horrible smell everywhere, the prices are high everywhere without any sense, the quality of services in general is not even decent, and absolutely not comparable to the money you spend. Speaking generally about hotels, restaurants or pools everything is absolutely not in line with the prices they are unpolite and absolutely unprofessional, they only care about money and they don’t offer decent service because they They rely only on the amount of people who go there.
I would also like to point out the car traffic and pollution, walking on the streets in all parts between Pieta, Msida, Gzira, Sliema, St. Julian's is absolutely dangerous because of the crazy drivers around the island, not to mention that in every single space of the promenades there is garbage, EVERY PART.
All tourist beaches are crowded and full of garbage, and the water is dirty because of people and garbage. In Malta they don't know what education is and the tourists who visit mostly kids think about drinking and littering, DON'T GO TO MALTA!

There a few pubs and clubs full of youngsters and lots of private gentleman clubs and you buy a drink with your card and then realise in the morning you’ve been ripped off , £100 euros and then £200 euros , women get you in there and then they take advantage of you to buy them a drink for yourself and them with your card . They are on commission to make lots of money off you . Stay away if you don’t want to loose loads of your money and can’t get it back . Nice people friendly and nice buildings , but some of them are way to friendly to take your money . Don’t use your card in these clubs use your euros .

If you are 18 to 24 this is the place to be anyone over 24 it is awfull. I have just come back from the Intercontinental Hotel in St. Georges., which was suppose to be a 5* hotel.Well it certainly was not. It was smack in the middle of the main street surrounded by fast food and takeaways. The streets were dirty and the place is so small and everywhere you look there are cranes and more buildings going up. This is the first time and the last time I shall visit this area.

As I walked down steps I heard a large group of gay chatting and one said "that one is gay".

The general area was full of testosterone of the threatening kind.

Lots of budget food and burgers and usual burger and food chains. I sought comfort and safety
of where I was staying.

I always like to see and visit various places when on holiday. Paceville has had a lot of bad press in the U.K. lately so I was keen to find out what all the fuss was about!
A family resort it is not! It’s fast becoming competition for the likes of Benidorm and Magaluf! If you like that sort of thing then why not. I may not be young any more, but there are plenty of young people out there that would love a party holiday.
Shame about such high rise buildings too though, that really takes away from the loveliness that Malta has so much of.

I just tot back from Paceville, the Malta party area. Many clubs for different music and crowds. Beware of gentlemen clubs; they are NO brothels, but more for lapdances. They may imply or even offer sex, but once You pay they will decline saying it is illegal - which is true at the time of writing this. But of course chances of getting your money back are slim. Black & White gentlemen club had used This scenario to rip me and other guys a new one- so avoid This club.

Admittedly had a few drinks and ended up being dragged into one of the strip clubs on the way home - big mistake. Avoid these at all costs or you will end up being a lot poorer for the experience
