A good one hour bus ride from the airport will bring you right to the door step of this hotel. The reception is located inside the bar cum restaurant where keys can be collected. Entrance to the rooms is via the stairs located behind the hotel on the back street. My room was on the 2nd floor just across the... More

This hotel is located on the Xemxija Bay. Literally on the bay. You get the most amazing views onto the picturesque water with Luzzu boats scattered accross sparkles of sunshine. There is something special about seeing the sunset with a glass of wine, whilst sitting in the balcony with a significant other. So. If you want amazing views you need... More

We stayed here for 5 days in May. The apartment is what it is, basic, clean but noisy from the busy road that runs past the apartments. The traffic noise goes on all day and well into the night and can make sitting on the balcony for the really lovely views a bit of a challenge. That said, for the... More

The hostel is very easy to find, there is even a direct bus connection from the airport and bus stop in front of the building. We had a basic room with amazing bay view, restaurant serves tasty local food. Staff was really helpful when my friend's lost luggage was delivered from the airport.

It is very basic place to stay in. The busy Road is Just outside, which means "bring your earplugs". Also the bus stop is literally just outside. Kitchenette in provided room is basic, by after all you are on holidays! It's enough to reheat whatever you need. Staff is nice and helpful, and the restaurant down there is a proper... More

Thankyou for the comments. Yes indeed the guesthouse is well-connected to the bus stop and close to the main road and thus some noise is unavoidable. Best regards, The management More

I spent a happy week at the Porto Del Sol. The room I had was large, bright and clean. The cooking facilities were adequate. I'd have liked a room with a balcony but that wasn't possible.

We are a couple in our early 60's, slightly the worse for wear in that I walk with a stick and my wife has asthma.
