Just returned from our visit to Malta and thoroughly enjoyed it! I visited with my wife and we booked a 1 bedroom apartment , as my wife uses a wheelchair. The apartment was very nice, easily accessed and we were very comfortable. The staff were very friendly and helpful, particularly the people on reception, who gave us useful advice. The hotel is in a great location, with bus stops at the bottom of the road in both directions, so it is easy to explore the islands. We will definitely visit again!

This hotel is situated in a perfect location. The hotel staff goes above and beyond if you need help. The room was very clean and fresh. Change of towels and bedding everyday. Defiantly a perfect place if you want to relax. November weather was nice enough apart from a few days of rain.

Just back from a November break. So lucky with the weather. The hotel staff are lovely and very helpful. The hotel was good value and clean. The location is convenient for easy access to Gozo and the whole island. The 7 day bus pass is a bargain and the stop is two mins walk from the hotel. An enjoyable stay.

We really loved our stay at this hotel. We had a room with a terrace, with views across St Paul's Bay, which was just perfect for morning coffee, reading a book or an evening glass of wine. Our studio room was very clean and had everything we needed, including a fridge, microwave and stove top. The bathroom was newly refurbished. It was lovely to be able to cook food and eat on the terrace, and there's a convenience store along the street from the hotel, which is well stocked (though for even greater choice, we'd recommend the supermarket at Mellieha, which is only a short bus ride away). We booked directly with the hotel via their web site, and it was excellent value for money. Alexis, the reservations manager, was extremely helpful, as were all of the staff. We had a lovely stay.

With friendly and very helpful staff, this lovely hotel offers a warm welcome in an extremely interesting and beautiful setting. With the Mediterranean seaviews plus the nature reserve to the side, and the Roman Heritage Trail in front, there is no shortage of things to do if you wish to walk around and explore Xemxija, St Pauls Bay. With a handy Convenience store; a fruit market and a friendly Bistro pub on the doorstep, you don't need to go far to enjoy yourself. However, if you want to use Porto Azzurro as a base and explore Malta further the bus stop across the road offers buses to Valletta, Sliema, Bugibba among other exciting places. If you book the hotel direct through Alexis you get many other benefits icluded such as free airport transfers to and from the hotel, and an extremely interesting and enlightening free harbour cruise from the ferry in Sliema. I cannot reccommend this hotel highly enough:- It is lovely, as are all the staff that work there.
