9x17 year old for 'lads holiday'
The villa itself is great, with all bedrooms air conditioned.
The bottom floor- games room, ping pong and pool table were very fun, the speaker weren't amazing but at least they were loud enough.
The bottom bedrooms- 3x single beds room itself was nice just bit stuffy with no windows, as we're 17 we didn't use the play area
The kitchen- had all needed utilitys, only problem we had was with the fridge was pretty awful and didn't go very cold and during the day got pretty warm and the dishwasher holder for the tablet was broken.
lounge was very nice.
Outdoor pool- very nice, great size.
Indoor pool- we never actually used the indoor pool we had a look, looked very nice but bit of a pain to have to walk down multiple levels past other villas.
All bathroom were great and all other room aswell, view from top floor was very nice.
Top floor ensuite shower leaked water everywhere as there was a hold in the wall which left a pool of water in the bedroom.
Both David and Jane very friendly and helpful.
Last issue was with air-conditioning, I was aware we had to pay 50 euros for it but that was only for 50 euros worth of extra electricity which we couldn't last on, and had to buy another card, so we spend €100 on air con. Don't understand why it isn't included in price, same with Wifi, we wouldn't mind paying extra in the initial price just a huge pain to be paying extras and sorting money out between the 9 of us as we had limited spending money with us.
However other than a few issue our over all stay was amazing and we had a brilliant time!

The place was exactly as described in the advert. All the facilities listed were functional and we encountered no issues with the villa itself during our stay.
Put bluntly, the environment was extremely tidy and plainly spotless.
The renter gave solid co-operation and in essence, gave a service which made it quite easy to settle that renting the place was very commendable.
The entire neighbourhood bordering the villa is simply stunning, and this all helped make our vacation even more enjoyable.
I strongly recommend staying at *xx*, It was a very positive experience for us and I am sure that you will have the same experience.
Our expectations were high based on pictures and previous reviews . We were somewhat disappointed.
First the pictures are probably of a time when the villa was brand new. Today all the furniture is worn out and in urgent need of replacement as can be seen in attached pictures .
Second, the villa is distributed on 5 levels , 3 above ground and two below ground : bedrooms are on level -1, 1, 2 and 3 . Lots of stairs …. There is not a single blade of grass on the property as the plot is very small and completely occupied by the small swimming pool. Thus there is very little space outside to enjoy .
Specifically for a party of 14 (3 families) as we were, there was no outside space big enough to allow us the eat together . There is a nook squeezed between the swimming pool and the side door which house a table and 6 chairs , same on the patio with the barbecue . Only by moving all outside tables inside and pushing the furniture were we able to eat together inside which was a pity given the beautiful October weather . There is a big terrace on the third floor but it is not furnished . There is no view at all from anywhere in the villa.
One disturbing thing is that the house is full of warning signs about the noise and the use of water and aircon , we counted no less than 30 such signs in the villa . This gives the impression of being a bunch of hooligans in need of disciplinary measures , not a feeling that is welcomed at any time but especially not on vacation, the overall impression being that guests are not welcomed.
The quality of sheets and towels is very low , grayish, threadbare . The price of additional cleaning (bedrooms and bathrooms only ) is 80 euros . There is no welcome pack and no leftovers from previous occupants (salt, oil ….) . We had to ask for additional glasses, washing machine repair, tablecloths to cover the stained tables . All our demands were met promptly but at the end we tired of asking for this or that as we felt that all this stuff should have been in place to start with.
Although, nature in Malta is beautiful, urbanization is not and this property is located in a neighborhood along the main road from la Valette to Gozo . Thus it is not possible to walk or run in the area as nothing is geared towards pedestrians.
If we were to return to Malta , we would rent a property in Gozo where urbanization has not spoiled the island.
