We hadn't been to Malta for 7 years (having gone annually for 12years) and within a minute of walking into the centre it felt like we hadn't been away. Due to medication that my husband is taking we were limited to 20metres so couldn't do...More

Sands Apts - xlendi (Part of Maltaqua Dive centre) (2 Replies)
Hi, Has anyone stayed in these apts? Would you reccommend them? What is xlendi like? Cheers, Shaun

Response fromScubapro1957|
If it's in Xlendi it's surprising that it's part of Maltaqua. After all they are in St Pauls Bay and Xlendi is on Gozo (it is isn't it??!!!) and the dive operation there is St Andrews Dive Cove. I've never stayed on a dive package before or is this where you are being accomodated for a DM or IDC internship.
