We booked the penthouse for a 3 adults and 2 kids. The beds and rooms were very nice and the home was well equiped. The A/C worked nicely and the terrace was the staple of our stay. While the building itself might require TLC, the apartment is top-notch. A trendy bathroom and a full kitchen were great. The electronics (wifi, tv etc) make the stay very comfortable.
The location is close to everything in Bugibba but also the side street is quite calm. Getting around Malta was easy with black cabs and only airport transfer during morning rush hour got exciting.
The pool area is nice for kids too with a kiddies pool and a gradually deepening large pool.
In general, we were left completely satisfied by our stay and will definitely book this again.
Booking this apartment was fairly straight forward. I used the trip adviser site as the payment is protected.
Family of 3 for a short break in the sun.
On arrival I was met by Etienne the owner and he was the perfect host.
Appearance from the outside of the building is ugh ogh what have i done ?? as the frontage looks less than appealing. Please don't let this phase you though.
The apartment is situated on the top floor of block H " multi apartment block for mostly residents rather than holiday makers"
The front door to the complex is key secured as is the lift, requiring a separate key for access.
The lift goes to level 4 but the apartment is 1 flight of stairs higher. Bear this in mind if you have mobility issues.

The penthouse itself is very modern and well equipped and the management team who looked after us were very professional and helpful to which we thank them. Unfortunately, the area lets it down.
