Everything Paul says is true. This place is trying to drag itself up by the bootstraps - and failing. Meanwhile, it's being used as a base by a timeshare company who fill the rooms with freeloaders. The breakfasts are dreadful, the staff sullen and the timeshare touts a pain in the backside. They use the poolside as an office to bring in people off the streets - don't even be tempted. It's a racket. The hotel is in a quiet part of Malta and could be wonderful - but needs someone with a good imagination - and a BIG wallet. It's basic. Very, very basic.
Unique Quality: It's outstandingly poor. The best balconies face the pool and have sun; the worst, the rubbish bins and waste ground at the back and don't.
Directions: XemXija, 10 minute drive north of St Paul's. 10 minutes by car to Gozo ferry.
The hotel was very drab and in serious need of an update.
The rooms have less than basic furniture (we had one bed with a leg missing when we arrived and were told to put the "Yellow Pages" under the corner.
The swimming pool area looks more like the remnants of a building site with cold water.
The staff are anything but helpful.
Expect to be pestered within the hotel complex by people who "insist" on you buying a type of time-share apartment. They claim you can stay anywhere in the world at anytime when in fact the only place they offer you is this Hotel Apartment bulding in Xemxia. They will not leave you alone, thereby spoiling your holiday.
The breakfasts in the hotel are of poor quality and very basic.
You will need to hire a car because you'll be isolated as the last bus back is at 7pm.
Unique Quality: The views are reasonable and there are a few good restaurants in the area.
It's on the main bus route to the Gozo ferry.
Not much else to report really.
