Good time at porto azzurro. Good value holiday and much better apartment this time, clean and well equipped. Last time we had a much inferior apartment and was not happy but hopefully next time we come we get a similar accommodation. Breakfast could be better, not enough selection and no fruit, yoghurt or cereal for 3 days,but Maria sorted that out . Maria is lovely and so very helpful and making the downstairs bar a success. Before, the bar remained empty - it isn't terribly inviting and could do with being upstairs where people would pass it when they come in. Alexis was very helpful too. Thank you for booking our transfers. Pool bar looking good now although a little expensive. The hotel is so well situated for buses and a few good restaurants. The Greek one Zeus up the road being a favourite. Looking forward to returning next year.

St. Pauls Bay is a quiet, marina bay but as Malta is not a huge island and transport facilities are efficient everything is within a reasonable distance. We enjoyed a very pleasant apartment overlooking the bay although other quieter rooms overlook the uncrowded pool and pool bar.
All our arrangements for and during the holiday were made through Alexis Meylaq who along with the cleaning and reception staff was both pleasant and extremely efficient.
Malta is steeped in history, architecture and tradition and the Maltese people are generally very friendly.

Room Tip: Speak to Alexis Meylaq and explain what you would like.

My wife and me visit Malta every year (August/September) and we prefer Porto Azzurro., a 3*hotel. to 4*-hotels in other places, we've been before.

Here a few reasons why:
1.PA isn't too large and loud and crowded, so we can relax soon.
2. The staff is busy to help. Especially Rachel (reception) and Alexis (guest relations) solved every problem and fulfilled every wish. Thanks!
3.We like ancient places, and Malta and Gozo have a lot of them.
Just a few steps up the hill or just a ride with a bus you can find temples, caves, ...
The bus-stop is nearby the hotel and the fares are low!
3. We like to swim in warm water.
The pool is nice but if you prefer sandy beaches it is just a ride with a bus to Mellieha Bay, Golden Bay, Gneijna Bay.
4. We are out very often and so we can't report very much about the restaurant.
The poolbar offers snacks, a bit too expensive.
But there are some restaurants or snackbars or a small supermarket near PA..
As we have plenty of room and a small kitchen in our apartment (for four persons) we havn't to go out, if we don't want to.
We liketo take our breakfast or dinner on our balcony and we enjoy the nice view over St.Pauls Bay and the valley.

Result: We've already booked for next year!

Room Tip: The time-share-apartments floor 4 and 5.!

This was my fourth visit and I took my sister and brother in law this visit. we were made most welcome by the staff. We had as few maintenance/cleanliness problems on arrival but Alexis Meylaq very efficiently sorted them out in no time. Porto Azzurro is not the most luxurious hotel in Malta, but it is a very pleasant hotel with indoor and outdoor pools and bars, meals available in the restaurant and poolside bar. There are also numerous restaurants nearby. nice place for a quiet stay. The rooms are very comfortable and all rooms have a balcony with sea views For us the location could not be bettered. Many interesting places to visit nearby. It is on several useful bus routes including airport and ferry.
