Having previously heard and read of horrendous increases in maintenance fees at other resorts in other countries, I am pleased to say the maintenance fee increases at Azure (Island Residence Club) at Golden Bay, Malta over several years has been very low.
I own a 1 bedroom sea view deluxe apartment in platinum season (I know that the maintenance fees are the same no matter what season), but I am pleased to say that over the years the fees have only crept up each year, the following fees are for a week on a 1 bedroom deluxe apartment:-
2011 €539 1.89% increase on previous year
2012 €566 5% increase on previous year
2013 €580 2.47% increase on previous year
So 3 years of increases have amounted to a total of €51 or less than 10%
