About the property

Central 2 bedroom apartment, sleeps 2 to 8, a stone's throw away from EVERYTHING

New apartment and called Gold because of the adopted colour scheme, this apartment offers a myriad of other experiences to please both the romantic and the young at heart. Gold provides excellent views of the seafront where all the major ferry boats moor (harbour/round Malta cruises, and Gozo/Comino/Valletta visits). The open top tourist and route buses' terminus is across the road, as is the seaplane departure point, making sightseeing a trouble-free delight. Restaurants and cafes abound in this locality, creating a pleasurable hub of activity. This 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment (main with en-suite), boasts a large kitchen/dining room which combines with the lounge area (the 2 sofa beds can sleep a further 2 if required), including gas fireplace, 42' TV and sound system. Adjacent is a 7’ x 4’ snooker table plus a bar for one’s own entertainment. Uniquely created is the ‘retreat area’ where a large Jacuzzi is enticingly situated in a romantically candle-lit alcove.

A fun apartment in a great location

  • 4 of 5

Feb 2017 (UK half term break)

The view of Valetta from Silema is fabulous.

You can see the Silema harbour from the balcony.

The apartment was good for our family of 4 (2 young boys).

The bedrooms are next to each other - one double, one twin - so they were confident going to sleep at night in a new place. They are at the back of the apartment so quiet and dark at night.

The TV has sky channels and the pool table was great fun. We couldn't log on to the home internet for some reason (but I expect it was due to our phones rather than the connection which is made free by the owner and has a strong signal). There is local free wifi in range so it wasn't a problem.

We tried to fill the hot tub twice but couldn't get enough hot water to submerge the jets (it's so big!) but the children loved splashing in it anyway. I guess we could have left the hot water immersion on for longer but didn't get round to doing this and felt bad wasting the energy!

Paul was very helpful when we needed help lighting the gas oven and got back in touch with us immediately.

I would have appreciated some basics in the kitchen e.g. olive oil, salt and pepper, sugar, maybe even a tea or coffee for our arrival, and soap in both bathrooms. However, this was not promised up front and perhaps other people wouldn't like to share, so I can see why some owners do not provide this.

A supermarket is in easy walking distance up the hill behind the apartment (not open on Sunday) and there are a few convenience stores along the Silema front underneath the apartment where you can buy milk, fruit, bread or postcards.

Parking was convenient - we always managed to find a space near the apartment - and it was free on the road.

Bars and eateries are directly below the apartment. There is a Dr Juice bar 20m away which the boys loved and a few ice cream parlours.

There are lots of companies offering boat tours and tourist experiences on the promenade opposite the apartment. We didn't use any of these but instead took the local ferry (almost opposite M&S) across to Valetta for about 2.80euro return. It takes about 10 mins and they shuttle backwards and forwards all day.

We loved our trip to Malta. The weather was beautiful. About 16-18C most days and sunshine/blue skies. Just what we needed to break from the UK grey.

Other recommendations for families with kids:

Nice big apartment in the centre of it al

  • 5 of 5

Really nice apartment / flat with a jacuzzi and big pool/snooker table. Nice veranda as well where you can look out into the water and down to the main strip. A/C works great, plenty channels on the TV if you need a (hangover) night in! Stayed here during a friends wedding in Malta and Paul and Josanne made the stay effortless! The young guy who picked us up and dropped us off at the airport was cool as well (cant remember his name!)

Plenty pubs and restaurants on your door step and a couple good late night bars about 10 minutes walk up along the water heading to the right.

Sorry for the late review guys - will be using your apartmets again whenever we decide to visit Malta again!

FYI for the pale skinned, take plenty sun cream!!!

Excellent Appartment in Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5

Title of review sums it up really, faultless location and apartment lives up to its online description. Owner allows you to use £'s as security deposit so you're not left with a lot of spare euros after your visit.

Spacious Apartment in a great location.

  • 3 of 5

Our stay at Gold Apartments was an enjoyable time. The pick up at the airport by Paul's son was very welcome after a very long journey. Our hosts were great and easy to contact when we found the toaster was broken, it was replaced very quickly.

The walls of the apartment could have done with a wash or a coat of paint and the lounges where quite worn with the bar pushing into the back of your legs. But otherwise the location is perfect for restaurants, buses, ferries and tours. A large supermarket just up the street, and plenty of shopping if you feel like that as well. Paul also drove us back to the airport at the end of our holiday at a small cost, which saved us worrying about organising this.

Excellent location right on the sea front

  • 5 of 5

The owners son picked us up from the airport and brought us to the apartment even though it was very late at night. He gave us a welcome pack including Maltese bread, cheese, ham and a bottle of sparkling wine. The rooms are clean and comfortable with plenty of wardrobe space. The view from the balcony and especially the roof terrace is spectacular.

The location could not be any better with shops and restaurants on your doorstep. The buses and ferry tours are only across the road for exploring the island.

The owners were wonderful hosts and even picked us up to go to another apartment.

Location

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Luqa at 10 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Various at 5 Metres Nearest Ferry : Sliema at 20 Metres Nearest Golf : Marsa at 8 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : Sliema promenade at 100 Metres Nearest Restaurant : Various at 10 Metres Nearest Beach : Sliema & St. George's at 500 Metres Car: not necessary

Sliema and the coastline up to neighbouring St Julian's constitutes Malta's main coastal resort. A centre for shopping, restaurants and caf'e life. Sliema is also a major commercial and residential area and houses several of Malta's most recent hotels. Sliema, which means `peace', was once a quiet fishing town on the peninsula across Grand Harbour from Valletta. The Sliema promontory offers on one side stunning views across to Valletta and on the other, open sea views. The promenade, which runs for several kilometres from Gzira just south of Sliema to St Julian's, is ideal for walking, jogging or just relaxation. There are plenty of seats along the promenade, which is also dotted with little bistros, restaurants, cafes, ice-cream parlours and the like. On summer evenings the seafront becomes a sociable meeting place for locals and tourists alike. The coastline has two tower fortifications: a watch tower built in the 17th century; the other was built by the British in the 1880's.
