“I miss Ta'Bertu”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2011

Although a tricky find, the stay at Ta'Bertu was a beautiful experience which I recommend especially if travelling in cosy duos (couple/friends), and better still, as family.
The elderly owners Violet and Albert were such warm hosts that attended to any questions and needs we have whenever they could. Their visiting grandchildren who are around in the day and evening are the loveliest and sweetest children I have met, they add much life and energy and entertainment around the guesthouse. We also had a taste of Maltese cuisine which was prepared by Violet and was really yummy :)

Ta'Bertu is near Zurrieq which is where you have to go to get to the Blue Grotto - saves travel time especially if you are going around free and easy. Ta'Bertu is extremely clean and cosy and is the perfect place if you just want to relax and get away from the hustle and bustle of life.
Just a word of caution - they are located near the refugee camp, so its recommended not to return later than 8pm - but to make up for this, they are also next to the army, so it is actually pretty alright. Us two girls travelling had no problems at all. At night just switch on the fan to chase the mosquitoes away!

Very glad to have stumbled across this and spend my last 2 nights there after being in the fun and chaotic centre of St Juliens. Moreover, Ta'Bertu is barely a 10/15min car ride to the airport (which Albert was glad to drop us at a small fee) - very convenient when you are leaving!

Do stay at Ta'Bertu if you have time to spare and want to just relax :)

I'm extremely glad that we chose to stay at Ta Bertu. Violet and Albert are some of the nicest people I've ever met, and they were more than happy to show us around their home and point out all of the best places to see and things to do on the island. We didn't have dinner there, and it was a little early in the year for the pool, but I could only imagine how much of a relaxing stay it would be with nicer weather in a different time of the year. It's a little far away from some of the main attractions, but there's a bus stop right at the end of the road which you can take all the way to Valletta, and you can get anywhere else on the island from there. Overall, we definitely enjoyed our stay there and it has definitely encouraged me to return whenever I'm able to in the future.

A lovely old Farmhouse with vines, orange trees, a very well appointed pool and gardens.There is a bus route nearby, but a car would be more convenient.. We found Violet and Albert very friendly and helpful. We had two evening meals (traditional Maltese) with them, which were extremely good value and delicious The wine was made from their vines. We drank with them in the evening and got lots of ideas of what was open on the bank holiday! The guest house is quite near the airport (No airport noise) so a good place to start in Malta. We would highly recommend it.
