“If you book this make sure you are going to this apprtment - false advertising !!”
Reviewed May 7, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We booked this apartment in February. After reading the reviews, description and looking at the pictures we knew roughly where the apartment was in Mellieha. We have been to Malta many times and knew the area was very hilly! On arrival we were shown our apartment and it looked spacious light and clean but totally different to the pictures, we presumed it had had a refit. Roberto said the TV wasn't working but if we needed it he would sort it gave us the directions to town and left. We set out to explore and it took us a 30 MINUTES HIKE UP A VERY STEEP HILL to get to town not like the 2mins stroll that was advertised and reviewed !!. We thought we'd taken the wrong direction so on day 2 we went the other way and found a 20 minute downhill trek then a 40 minute uphill trek back to town!!...... the apartment smelt damp had a balcony the size of a postage stamp and the electrics where faulty (the kettle plug was welded to the socket and bedroom lamps flickered if you touched them), kitchen cabinet doors where hanging off, only one person could have a shower as the water tank held approx. 2 pints of water (slight exaggeration), we had also asked for the TV to be repaired and was told it was going to be hard to find a technician as it was a public holiday......... On day 3 we had had enough and packed and overnight bag and trekked into town and booked into the Hotel....
We had a wonderful stay and decided to collect our things from the falsely advertised apartment and enjoy the rest of our stay in comfort !! ........ Roberto the owner did ring and asked why we had gone and suggested we met up to "close the deal up" and offered us a refund. On our final night Roberto arrived at our hotel and we presented him with the holiday that we had ACTUALLY booked and a list of faults - his excuse was that he owns 4 apartments in Mellieha and that was a different one. He then produced a contract/disclaimer for us to sign which resolved him of any responsibility and it said that we had accepted everything and that we agreed not to complain ..... then he flashed 80 euros as compensation !!!! ......... pfftt ..... we flatly refused to sign anything and told him he could keep his money ..... we paid 300 euros for an apartment we DIDN'T EVEN BOOK !! ..............We didn't take our driving licences as we were under the impression that we were a cocks stride from the town but A CAR IS ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL FOR THIS APARTMENT !!

I am very sorry about how the issue was tackled. We could have told you about the overbooking and that you were located into one of our other apartments and on the other side you could have also not told us over and over again that all was good whenever asked, also in person just the evening before you decided to pack and move out without any correspondence with us. I only found the key in the letter box when i called to check what happened. We could have relocated you in another apartment from Sunday but anyways i believe what is done is done now. with regards to the apartment 'falling apart' as described in your review i really believe that is unfair because there was a family of 4 persons living permanently up to this March for the past 28 months so there is definately no problems at all with regards to electricity, terrace and furniture. Moreover since March the apartment was also rented out to other people for holidays.

We apologise again for the thing that you are right about and admit our mistake for not telling you that the apartment was different from what you booked and that we could move you from Sunday and we are glad you had a good time at the hotel you stayed after moving out.

“Fantastic apartment - we will be back next year!”
Reviewed September 14, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

I would not hesitate to recommend this apartment as the location was perfect, the apartment itself clean and spacious, and perfect for couples or a young family. My daughter is 2 and she loved her own room and there was plenty of living space for her to play. Buses to the beach leave from right outside but the apartment is set back so it is quiet and peaceful and only a short 2 minute walk to the cafés, bars, & restaurants. Loved it and will be back next year!

“Lovely apartment, great location; great place to unwind and switch off”
Reviewed April 9, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

The apartment is lovely and as pictured. It is situated in a quiet friendly neighbourhood in Old Mellieha but is only a very short walk from all amenities (restaurants, shops and bus stop).
The view is great day or night over looking the Lady of Mellieha church and the bay. It is a top floor apartment but only a couple flights of stairs allows this lovely view.
Mellieha bay is beautiful beach, great for kids or just lounging on.

Roberto is very helpful and easy to contact if required, meeting us in Mellieha to show us to the apartment directly.
