“Outstanding Apartment in St Paul's Bay, Malta!”
Reviewed July 22, 2013 for a stay in July 2013
1
person found this review helpful

Vacationed/visited family in Malta for 8 days in July 2013 and stayed at this property for the first time. I stayed with my spouse and 2 daughters and found the apartment extremely spacious, clean, modern and it has an outstanding view of St Paul's Bay. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend this property to others. Here are some other details:
Pros:
- View, view and more view!
- lots of space - 3 large BRs and 2 bathrooms in addition to the kitchen/family room
- air conditioning in living room and all the bedrooms
- in suite modern washer and dryer
- open concept kitchen and living room
- close but not too close to tourist amenities
- very quiet in the evening
- two lifts to the apartment
- Wi-Fi
- very responsive property manager

Cons:
- no pool, although sea is close and nearby hotels allow pool use for a nominal fee
- lifts are very small and a little claustrophobic

Overall, a very nice property and one we would consider staying at again.

“Stunning apartment with fantastic views & great location!”
Reviewed May 28, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

We stayed at this fantastic apartment for one week at the end of April and we loved it!
We booked a transfer with Paul and our pick up from the airport and check in was all very efficient. We were all very impressed with the apartment and it is just as it is advertised on the website, absolutely beautiful :)
It is a very spacious, modern apartment well laid out. It has balconies to the front (overlooking bay) and to the rear, all with superb views. It is in private secure complex and it is nice and quiet. It is in a great location in St Pauls Bay, close to the shops and restaurants. There is a bus stop just across the road, and the buses go to the terminus @ Bugibba where you can get a bus to anywhere on the island. There are also boat trips that depart just accross the road from St Pauls Bay.
The Gillieru Harbour Hotel is opposite the apartment and they have a roof top pool. We told them we were staying in Porto Paolo and asked if it would be possible to pay to use their pool and they said yes and it is was €5 per day. So this is a very good option :)
The kitchen in the apartment is great with all mod cons and utensils if you want to cook & dine in apartment. There are also plenty of restaurants close by, ones we would recommend are: Tarragon (booking advised) / Venus / Portobello / and The Gillieru Restaurant.
We would highly recommend this apartment and would love to come back and stay here again!!

Porto Paolo is without doubt one of my favourites on our portfolio, being an agent I have seen many on the island, it's the size, finish, location and views that do it for me. I am very pleased to learn you enjoyed your stay, thank you so much for your feedback :) Rgrds Paul...

Thank you for your feedback it is very well received and really does assist, people looking to take an informed decision about booking Porto Paolo from someone that has experienced the Apartment in the physical form. Porto Paolo is without doubt the most prestigious block in the north of Malta, these properties where expensive to purchase, which reflects the asking price to Holiday Let having a price tag of circa Eur750,000.00 to buy. I am delighted you had a wonderful time and enjoyed your stay at Porto Paolo, Best Regards Paul...

“Terrific!”

We spent 2 weeks with friends and family here and truly had the time of our lives! The views are breathtaking and location is perfect if you don't want to drive. Close to many restaurants and shops, not too touristy but close enough if you want to be touristy. Thank you very much to Paul for your help and patience! If we ever make it back to Malta we would not hesitate to stay here again. The apartment is very spacious and modern, highly recommend ! From the Canadians!

“Stunning huge apartment in an excellent location with perfect view”
Reviewed August 2, 2012 for a stay in June 2012

person found this review helpful

We were very impressed with the apartment, there was everything you could possibly need and the apartment was so big there was plenty of room for everyone, there were 3 adults and 2 children in our party. The decor was lovely very modern.Loved the balconies all around the property but the view looking out at the jetty is breathtaking. The apartment could not have a better location. Will certainly come back to the apartment again and would recommend without hesitation.

We had a slight problem at check in we had paid for early arrival at the property but the cleaners were still in our property for quite a while when we arrived as the previous guests had not cleaned up and they had a lot to do as the apartment is so large. However the cleaners were very pleasant and worked around us, we popped back out while they finished and we were given a full refund of what we had paid to check in early so very helpful.

Thank you for your feedback it is most appreciated on one of our favourite Apartments within our portfolio, I knew you would enjoy the views, which as you mention are without doubt breathtaking, together with the level of finish and presentation offered. Delighted you enjoyed your stay to the extent you would return, my apologies re; your arrival, we allocate 5hrs to clean and prepare the Apartment, unfortunately the departing guest left the Apartment more dirty than normally how we find it and thus the maid had to work that more extra to ensure your comfort was achieved and the return of your early check fee was returned as mentioned. Again we thank you for your feedback and would be delighted to have you back one day, Rgrds Paul...
