“Very Nice - Would Stay Again”
Reviewed June 23, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This flat was very nice, and provided a great base from which to see Malta. There were a couple of things we weren't fond of, but overall we had a great stay here.

First, the positive:

First - the owner's son picked us up at the airport and drove us to the flat at midnight. This was VERY helpful. Once we knew where the flat was, it was easy to get in and out, but there is no way we would have found it on our own, especially at night. This was a great service that we really appreciated.

The flat had plenty of room for five of us (three adults and two children), although one child used a folding set of cushions on the floor for a bed. This was fine since he's only 4 years old, but I can imagine it would be tougher with an older child/teen. The kitchen had almost everything we needed for our stay, and while we didn't use the BBQ it was a nice option to have. The pool was very nice and private, and the kids had a blast in it. In fact, the whole layout had a great feel to it, and definitely brought the vacation vibe to our stay.

Additionally, the house was off the main road enough to be quiet and peaceful, but close enough to have easy access to the island. It was a short drive to several restaurants, slightly further to hit the beach, and an easy 1/2 hour-ish drive to Valetta or Mdina.

The owners were nice and generally helpful, but left us pretty much alone - which was what we wanted.

There were a few things I would change/improve, though, that kept this from being a full five stars. Specifically:

The wonderful stone look throughout the flat is a plastic veneer. It looks great, but was awkward every time it bent to the touch. Not a big deal, really, except the awkward feeling evry time it happened.

The beds were a bit ... meh ... and the pillows needed replacing. We slept OK, but we'd want something more luxurious to kick it up to the five-star level. With that, there was no shower curtain or wall attachment for the shower in the en-suite, so all of us used the family shower. Again, that's something we would want to kick it up to the five-star level.

The television was small, and we couldn't figure out if there was cable/satellite - and if so how to turn it on. It was a nice detox for the kids, but some kids programming while making breakfast would have also been nice to have.

There was no microwave, and the oven wasn't intuitive or easy to work with. Again, not a deal-breaker, but it made reheating pizza for lunch a little ... interesting, shall we say. It took us a few tries (and several times airing out the house from the gas smell) to get it to work, and a couple times it just shut off in mid-reheat before we finally finished.

And finally, both my wife and daughter have long hair, but there was no hair dryer at the flat. We had to go buy our own. Again, not a deal-breaker, but an annoyance.

All told, though, we would stay here agian - we'd just prepare a bit better (e.g. the hair dryer) knowing what to expect.

Thank you for your review. I would like to point the following in response to your comments, as you have well said my son Collected you from the airport at midnight and took you all to the property, as we usually do we explain everything to our guests upon arriving at the property, such as oven / washing machine/ TV. The oven is gas so very easy to operate and the TV is via Internet streaming so altough sometimes it can be a little slower than cable television this is much more appreciated from our guests since you have many many options and numerous channels to watch including movies. Finally as you have said we the owners do not interfere with our guests privacy however we on a daily basis clean and monitor the pool every morning so should there have been any problem we would have taken care off at that moment. Thank you again for staiying with us and hope as you said that you will return in one of our properties.

We had a very nice stay in Saviour's nice studio with swimming pool. Together with the nice weather we had our own space here, taken from and brought back to the airport, we enjoyed it!

Reviewed September 9, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Excellent place to stay , excellent hosts and aside from the odd mosquito you could not ask for a better place to stay. Would recommend the hire car option if you have young children as the shops and pubs are a bit of a walk away but apart from that brilliant and thank you Saviour.
