“Outstanding views”
Reviewed 19 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Very happy to recommend this apartment. Bit tricky to find on first arrival, and if you are arriving after 7pm make sure to buy milk, bread and basics before arriving. Apartment very comfy, and the views from balcony are outstanding. Masses of storage space (we accidentally left behind clothes in one of the wardrobes which Mary Anne very kindly posted back to us!) and two very large bedrooms. The middle bedroom lacks privacy as it has glass doors and there is no window. We didn't really use the living room as we tended to spend our time on the balcony, but there is a TV (which we didn't use at all) and wifi. Xemxija is a quiet place which suited us but only 5/10mins drive to mellieha and Bugibba and ferry to Gozo. There is a busy road behind apartment but it didn't bother us at all. Just a few minutes walk from the apartment takes you down to the sea and there is a fabulous swimming area which we used every day and which made our holiday. All towels including beach towels were included which was really helpful. The kitchen was modern and new and the washing machine, fridge and freezer were great. A few more basics such as a sharp knife, chopping board and some larger glasses would have been welcomed. The other thing that would have been useful was another set of keys. With only one set of keys it made it tricky if we weren't all going out together.
Overall, very happy to recommend resort and accommodation. Lots to do and see, lovely people. We will come back!

“A great vacation”
Reviewed 11 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

I've traveled in a group of 4, so this location was a great pick for us, providing 3 bedrooms + a living room and 2 bathrooms (yup, there's never enough showers when you come back home after a day at the beach). The apartment is clean, well equipped (note for owners: a coffee machine would be great) and pretty quiet by our standards. There is only one A/C in the living room, so we had to sleep with our bedroom doors opened (there are also fans in 2 bedrooms, but in july - august they don't help too much.
The best sand beaches on the island are really close to Xemxija (within 5-6 km you have Golden Bay, Mellieha Bay, Għajn Tuffieħa Bay), but i'm not sure how easy is to access them by bus, as we decided to rent a car (we chose R&R Car Hire - they're called now BSG Car Rentals - who offer very good prices with no hidden costs). There's really not much to do in the evenings in Xemxija, so renting a car is a good idea... there are plenty of places where you can park the car close to Dolphin Court.

Also, if you decide to go to Golden Bay, don't hesitate to take any of the tours provided by Charlie on his Discovery speedboat... his tours offer top value for money.

“The apartment is ok but noisy and no blinds in dormitories”
Reviewed 14 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

The apartment is big enough but a main road is very close of the house and there is too much noise day and night. There are no blinds in the windows of two rooms, so you have the light inside at 6 a. m.
I had no contact at all with the owner and the map and instructions to come she gave me were wrong, so it tools two ours to find the house. In the kitchen there are very few elements, no coffee machine, no salt...

Every room has blinds or curtains. If somebody misunderstands directions, it does not mean that wrong directions were given.It is always myself or my husband who meet the guests on arrival. Unless there is a problem we leave our guests to enjoy the view and the holiday.
