Reviewed October 18, 2013

Very good value! Staff very friendly and helpful especially Alexis. We welcomed an upgrade to a very nice apartment although we were quite happy with the standard room we booked.
Maria, in the restaurant deserves special mention as she worked tirelessly in sometimes difficult circumstances to meet the needs of each and every diner at breakfast.
The location of the hotel was every good being adjacent to the bus stops which provided a regular service around the island.

Room Tip: The two bedroom apartments are excellent and the standard rooms quite adequate. All in all very goo...

This hotel proved perfect for our holiday being in a quiet bay of the island but with ideal facilities within the hotel and with restaurants and transport links in the immediate viscinity. The hotel was well appointed and the staff, under Ms Alexis Meylaq, were friendly and helpful. Our suite was well equipped and the daily servicing was impeccable.

Room Tip: Joining a holiday club provides good value.

We chose Maltese dishes, the service was very good, the wait was reasonable and what we were served was very tasty and reasonably priced.

We have stayed here before, the service was, as usual, excellent. The reception and service staff cannot do enough and are very knowledgeable about the locality and Malta in general.
We book a studio room, which is ideal for our needs, clean and comfortable. On the north side of the hotel it is shaded, doesn't get too hot in the mid day sun, overlooks the pool and hillside. Generally an excellent base from which to explore Malta and Gozo.
We didn't use the restaurant, the menu had no appeal, and nothing Maltese. A part of any holiday is to experience the local food, not what looks British, and good food within easy walking distance is easy to find.

I can only agree with most other comments. I heard some of the rooms had been modernized, but our room was badly ventilated, bathroom was basic but clean. Water pressure in the shower was minimal and the water vapor is hard to evacuate from the place so everything gets a moldy smell.

The room wasn't cleaned very well when e entered the first day.

The hotel staff is friendly and helpful. Having to pay for a nearly non-existing WIFI signal in the room was disappointing.

But for the price we paid, good value! Try the lounge at the swimming pool!

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.
