Guestbook comments from the manager

Barbara Hall

Worthing, United Kingdom

Good apartment, good location, good owners

Left on May 31, 2018 for a stay in May 2018

We have stayed in Seashells before, so knew that the location (on the edge of the seaside of Bugibba) gave us easy access to local facilities and out into the rest of Malta. Bugibba has good bars, restaurants and shops that are open tourist hours. The apartment is well-appointed and the friendly owners are ready to help, if needed. We have no hesitation in staying there again. Barbara and Kevin Hall

Very friendly and helpful staff, good value

  • 4 of 5

The staff was extremely friendly and went out of their way to respond to my special requests. The apartment was very clean, nicely furnished, and reasonably well equipped, although I missed a few things in the kitchen (e.g. a cutting board). I also missed air conditioning because it was extremely hot during my stay (though I generally try to avoid using air conditioning). The apartment is conveniently located (5 minutes walk to Bugibba Square, 3 minutes to waterfront, where one can go swimming in the sea), but the immediate neighbourhood is not very appealing. There was a lot of noise from the adjacent construction site during the day, and some noise from nearby restaurants at night. Overall, however, very good value if you can tolerate some noise and the somewhat run-down neighbourhood. I'd particularly recommend it for the customer service.

Honest review good and bad

  • 3 of 5

Neville,Ruth and staff were really helpful and friendly.

On arrival our private taxi transfer we booked through Neville didn,t turn up. Contacted Neville and he dealt with it prompty. He arranged another taxi and didn't charge us, up graded us to the pent house apartment and gave us a bottle of wine all free of charge-couldn't have asked for anything more.

The apartment was lovely (as all the ones in seashells apartment block are). Great location and secure. However there is major biulding works going on next door as well as in most of the resort. We were woken around 6.30am every morning which we didn't appreciate at all and think we should have been informed before we booked (also surprised no mention of the major building work in the whole resort wasn't mention in any travel forums).

Lastly after paying for a private return taxi transfer to the airport we were disappointed that we were picked up in a mini bus and picked up another couple at the other end of the resort. No big deal really but a bit cheeky when we had paid extra for private taxi.

Despie the above for what we paid and standard of appartment and helpfulness of staff l would still recommend staying in seashells if you really want to go to Bugibba.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Indeed the apartments are well located and we the owners together with all our team (cleaning, maintenance, representatives and office staff) do all our best to offer the best service and best accommodation to our guests. Apartments are kept fresh, clean and well equipped through the whole year with great dedication. Malta`s economy and tourism is booming. This is leading to a lot of construction going on roads and buildings. Thus some delays with transport and some construction noise or dust (due to the dry climate) are common and found all over the Island. The transport company we use is quite big and sometimes when there is a delayed taxi due to traffic they send the closest vehicle. All vehicles are brand new and air conditioned, including the minibuses. We also operate a 24/7 support service should our guests have an emergency outside office hours. We always do our best to help as much as possible.

Really enjoyable stay in a lovely apartment .

  • 4 of 5

This was the first time we had been to Malta and it didn't let us down.

We had arranged a pick up from the airport and that went very smoothly and we were greeted at the apartment and given a quick tour of the apartment.The location was just perfect close to the front but away from the hustle and bustle. Great views from 3 balconies. The facilities were good and we were very comfortable. Buggiba itself is very nice , not as built up as Dilemma and St Julian's bay but easy to get anywhere via public transport. We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely return at some point in the future. Thanks Neville.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your nice comments. Yes, the apartment is brand new and has an excellent location as it is located just off the seafront and promenade of Bugibba. The area is quiet but close to the centre too. Close by there are shops, bus stops, restaurants, etc etc. We look forward to your next stay! Ruth and Neville

a place to enjoy life in Malta

  • 5 of 5

We can strongly recommend this apartment as everything was as described and even better. The owner is very friendly and helpful and the location is absolutely the best you can have in Buggiba. It is close to everything but quiet and shops and restaurants are just around the corner.

We especially liked the washing machine as we have never experienced this device on a balcony before. Everybody is very helpful and we will definitely come back.

The apartment is in a very quiet but central area of Bugibba. Bugibba is a very touristic area located in the north of the island and is part of the village of St Paul's Bay. The apartment is close to the night life, beach, bus stop, ferries and departure point for day cruises, shops, banks, pharmacies, casino, restaurants, bars etc. The best sandy beaches, historical cities and places, and all the best places that a tourist should visit while on holiday are only one bus away. I live close to the apartments and can give assistance 24/7. Also I will be very happy to give advice on what, where and how to see the best of Malta has to offer according to customer preferences. I also offer help with airport transfers, car rentals and motorboat rentals (at no profit).

Other Activities: power boating,para kiting,cliff climbing,
