Noisy, dirty, sleazy, but does have some good points.

The bars in paceville are all geared towards younsters with loud music and crowded bars. Most of the bars seem to be owned by Hugo. All the bars are centered around the steps to the shopping mall and I would imagine would be quite dangerous at night especially after a few jars:) The atmosphere is a little sleazy to be... More

We were here because we have a timeshare at The Intercontinental Hotel, which is first class. However, the surrounding area varies tremendously, from massage parlours and gentleman's clubs to high class restaurants, a cosy shopping mall, coffee parlours, cinemas ......just all sorts. Oh and a beach. However, the young set descend on the area, Thursday through to Sunday evenings, so... More

If you are looking for partying, discos etc this is the place for you. Very well attended by young persons. You shall meet nice young girls, not only Maltese but from various countries. The place has also a number of good quality restaurants and pubs. People love to partying in the streets. There is also a Casino called the Dragonara... More

Liked this location, being in my 40,s I felt a bit old at times, but if you like shopping, pubs, nightclubs casinos and tittie bars all in one handy fairly small location then this is for you.

Well, what can I say about Paceville??? Notorious comes to mind but this is Malta's party zone and caters for all tastes. My advice, go check it out if you are a serious partygoer. Stay away if you are the sensitive type or suffer from anger management issues!!!

So cramped and grubby, so many gentlemen's clubs, bars, gambling nightclubs, strip clubs and pubs...not a place for a nice relaxing holiday. The beach is small so very crowded and manic. We couldn't find a decent place to eat that didn't have dreadful music blaring out. We moved on to Sliema which was really busy too but much nicer and... More

Probably a great place for a stag do, but avoid if you are on a family holiday. Dirty streets, every other building seemed to be a strip club or a fast-food joint. Nasty
