I was pleasantly surprised with this apartment block. I booked for a week, last week in March, traveling on my own with the plan to do a week's mountain biking combined with sightseeing. Professional approach at reception when I arrived ......I was earlier than the stated 2 pm book-in time (arrived at 12) but no problems and I was shown to my room. I was expecting a single but had a spacious room with comfy double bed next to the doors that led out to a small balcony (quite narrow with a couple of white plastic chairs). It is ok for a cuppa in the morning and has a washing line.
There is a fridge, kettle, toaster and 2-hob electric plate and small oven. My only real niggle in the kitchen area was the quality of these items (I am not big on the whole H & S thing but I had to jiggle the leads to the kettle and toaster a few times to get them working!). Still, I always got them working in the end so I didn't feel it was a major issue. Plenty of plates etc etc.
Bathroom - large, with bath and shower attached to taps. Niggle number 2! The shower was a bit rubbish ....more of a trickle and no means to hook it to the wall, you just had to hold the shower all the time. Again not a huge setback from my perspective, and I may just have been unlucky. Overall, the room was tidy and nice touch with the towels folded on the bed with complimentary shampoos etc when you arrive. There was also a TV - not my thing whilst on hols, but I think you could get SKY news and Fox tv ...if you need your fix!
Rooms cleaned daily if you want ... or need this, and really friendly cleaning staff.
One little gem of this place is the rooftop sun terrace and pool. Great place to chill out with a book on a lounger by the pool and good views over the surrounding area.
Location - it's in Bugibba and a 5 min walk to the square and sea front. Okay, it's not the prettiest location to say the least, but it's a practical, safe and clean base, and to be honest, Bugibba overall isn't that picturesque!
In case you are thinking of hiring a bike in Bugibba ......I had to negotiate to keep the bike inside as nowhere to chain it up outside the building. In the end it wasn't a hassle, and I kept in the hallway under the stairs. Best hire place is Dave's Eco Bikes (10 mins walk from the hotel, google for details of website and worked out at approx £7 a day hire ...bargain!) Plenty of places to eat ...Fat Harry's pub (I know...!) was cheap, good atmosphere and the food okay. There are more slightly up-market places, but as a solo traveler I wanted places I could merge into, and have a chat with folk and this was ideal.
