“Great large family villa with children's pool!”
Reviewed 15 June 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We came back last night from a fabulous week in Villa Sunny side. There where 10 of us in total, ages ranging from 61 to 1.5, and we all loved it!

There was plenty of room for all of us in the villa, with 4 big bedrooms upstairs and two downstairs. It is at a good standard and very clean. It also has free wifi which was a bonus!

Karen and her mum are both very nice and accommodating. All our questions before we arrived were replied to promptly and when there they were very helpful.

The highlight of the villa is the great outside area, especially the children's pool. The weather was great all week and the water in the pools was warm enough to stay in it for quite a while.

There is also a barbeque and a big outside dining table, which is where we had most of our meals. The kitchen is well equipped, and you can buy all the food you'd need in the shops in the village. It's a 15 minute walk, uphill, but if you go early morning or late afternoon, it is not too bad. The bakery opens at 6:00 so you can get fresh bread for breakfast. The butchers (Prime) sells great barbeque meat which can be marinated in any flavour you'd like. The supermarket, Shopppers, delivers for free to the villa.

There are quite a few restaurants in the village, and they seem very reasonably priced.

It's about a 30 minute walk to the sandy beach in Mellieha. It was very crowded when we went (Sunday) so we decided not to stay as the pool is actually better. :) However, if you go straight down to the sea (10 min) from the villa, there is a tiny beach which is good for snorkling.

We also went on a day cruise with the English Rose on day, which was great. The jetty from which it leaves is about a 20 min walk from the villa.

“fantastic family holiday villa”
Reviewed 23 July 2012 for a stay in July 2012

We stayed at the sunny side for 3 weeks, not only is it a well equipped villa great laundry facillitys vital on a large family holiday. There are large bedrooms most of which have huge ceiling fans, it has a fantastic out side area the pools are wonderful and the BBQ. The out side dinning area is also great. The owners are such nice people and so helpful. John was very very kind to us and kept the pool up to speck for us. The age group went from 4 to 70 including teenagers and all of them absolutely loved it we started out with 5 of us but ended with 10 by the time the family all arrived. Just up the hill is the supermarket or there is Scots at Bummerad. The restaurants are plentiful Escargot on the top of the hill as you go down the village on the left, offers fantastic local meals at great prices and Norbert the owner/ chef is so welcoming. Rubin’s at the Costa del Sol on the beach at Ghadira offers fab views and meals at night as well as good lunches in the day. The cross keys has a wonderful restaurant upstairs and the top notch Il Mithna is equivalent to a Michelin star restaurant. Sandro is the owner Chef and again a wonderful host. It is in a 16th century windmill built in the times of the knights of St John.
I would strongly recommend the Sunny side and the walk up and down in to the village helps you burn off the pounds.

“Nice villa but could be better”
Reviewed 9 September 2011 for a stay in August 2011

The villa was very spacious and for 12 of us we were fairly comfortable there. It was 38 degrees so was a bit hot without any air conditioning. The amenities were OK but it would have been good to have had some spare bed linen as it was so very hot at night. There were extra blankets but no sheets. The freezer broke down so we had to throw away icecream & lollies. The pool could have been cleaner & we had to do that ourselves - it was only cleaned once. We did not realise the villa would not be cleaned and beds changed at least once during our stay, like others we have stayed in Mellieha.
Location was nice & quiet.
