Quite simply a hellhole, kind of like a post-apocalyptic vision of a vastly overcrowded metropolis, villains lurking round every corner ready to start trouble. If you manage to squeeze inside a bar keep an eye on the door as a human tide can very easily...More

Definitely worth checking out this area for drinks and food and even the lovely bay beach! There’s a good shopping complex so far - a lot of building works going on so this area will only get better!

Busy, noisy, variety, interesting. Lots going on. Many restaurants, bars and a pretty good shopping mall. Could not believe how busy it was for November. Something there for everyone.

I expect it’s a great place for the young party crowd but too crazy for me and my husband. Lots of bars, restaurants, dance clubs, gentleman clubs etc Nice little mall and great movie theatre.

Good location for teenager, not for family or couple. There are a lot of casino, bar , restaurant and hotel, but the level is quite low. It is better to journey at Sliema, location more quite, elegant, with very nice beach, restaurant and hotel.

If you want good nightlife, this is the place to go. Unfortunately for us, this was not our reason for visiting Malta (only reason for the mediocre rating). This area does have all you need from bars and clubs, to restaurants, to shops and supermarkets....More

Just down from our hotel, but far enough away, this is the BAR STREET area. We visit during the day, some really nice restaurants and bar/pubs. The nights are for the younger crowd and gentlemen !!! Not a place for young families....

I throughly recommend the Hotel Juliani in St Julian's which is about 15 mins walk from Paceville.
