“Well equipped apartment in a great location. Great value.”

My teenage daughter and I stayed at Encanto Holiday Accommodation for 7 nights towards the end of October.

Selecting and paying for this accommodation was made easy through the Trip Advisor site although there wasn't much of an interval between having to pay the deposit and settle the remainder. I had some queries about getting to the apartment and the facilities provided, all of which were answered promptly by the owner.

For an additional 20 euro fee, we were met at the airport by the owners father and driven directly to the apartment which was a great help as we arrived fairly late at night. I had asked for some milk to be provided for the obligatory cuppa on arrival and Benjimen duly provided that for us. The apartment was spotlessly clean when we arrived so all we had to do was relax for a short while and then turn in for a good nights sleep.

The apartment was incredibly spacious for just the two of us as we each had our own bedroom and bathroom. Everything we needed during the stay was provided including one beach towel apiece. We didn't eat in much, but the kitchen was fully equipped and we were able to easily cook a couple of meals whilst we were there. The bathrooms, especially the main shared one, were also fitted out well and there was plenty of hot water on tap whenever we needed it. Beds were comfy and sheets clean and there was plenty of storage space for unpacked clothes etc.

The location of the apartment was great. On the edge of the village, it was very quiet at night but was also very close to the centre of the village and local shops. As we traveled by bus most of the time we were there, and the main bus route to Valletta was only a few minutes walk away, we were able to get out and about with very little trouble. It was also only a 5 - 10 minute walk down to the lovely fishing port of Marsaxlokk which proved to be a bustling, interesting place to hang out during the day.

Perhaps the only downside was the building site a few doors down from the apartment. This wasn't too noisy for us as we went out most days but lorries delivering material to the building site in the morning were quite loud. Once the building work is finished though, this apartment should be quiet all day. Also, although there is a small patio are to the rear of the apartment, it isn't very scenic or conducive to sitting outside to relax. Big enough for BBQ's though if you don't mind bringing the food through the master bedroom.

All in all though, we had a great holiday in Malta and were very comfortable in this holiday apartment.

Liked best: The quiet location and yet being close to amenities
Liked least: Wi Fi didn't reach to the rear of the property and there was nowhere to sit outside and relax.

“Great apartment in a great location!”

We stayed in this apartment in January with our 1 year old and had a great time. The flat is extremely spacious and has every appliance you could need, it was spotlessly clean when we arrived. The location is perfect, right on the edge of the village so completely silent even during the day, yet just a 5 minute stroll to the waterfront. Anson and Bernice the owners were great, they were able to provide a cot and high chair for a very small cost and when our car hire fell through they kindly sorted a replacement for us. Marsaxlokk is a great place to stay, quiet and relaxed, no high rise development here, yet with lots of great restaurants and plenty of shops if your self catering. So if you're planning a trip to Malta, come to Marsaxlokk and most importantly stay at Encanto!
