From booking in April to arriving in September, we found David Bonnano to be very helpful, informative and friendly. David is a true gentleman and wishes you to have a perfect holiday at his apartments. On arrival a taxi took us to the apartment, arranged by David. David then called to see us later on in the day and offered to take us to the supermarket immediately, and threw in a ittle tour of the village free of charge. Nothing was too much for David. The apartment was lovely and clean with fresh towels and laundry (which the cleaners called once a week to change, but there is a washing machine to do your own, which we did) the view on the balcony was fabulous and the roof top pool having even better views of the bay! The apartment has everything you need and if it has something missing then a quick phone call or email to David and he will call to fix the problem Asap. David is on hand morning or night, he works so very hard. If you are looking at this property to book then don't hesitate, if you want a peaceful, relaxing, stress free holiday! We will certainly be back! X

Absolutely fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

What a brilliant apartment! Lovely big, spacious apartment, fabulous views, lovely little pool, and David was really friendly and helpful. It was a wonderful place to stay if you don't mind a bit of a walk into town - for us that was part of it and it helped to keep us fit! Never been to Malta before but we're coming back as we absolutely love it. If we come in summer we will definitely book this apartment again - it really helped to make our holiday wonderful and relaxing and lots of great memories..

wonderful view

  • 4 of 5

This was our third stay at the Horizon but the first time in the 3 bedroom apartment. The living/dining area was clean, well equipped with all the essentials. It was bright and spacious. The bedrooms were comfortable and the bathrooms were a good size. The ensuite would benefit from having a grab handle on the bath wall and a wall bracket for the shower head. Otherwise the apartment was well maintained. David was, as usual, very attentive and responded very promptly to help us with a small problem we had with the TV. The Welcome Pack of groceries was very much appreciated. We had a very pleasant stay with a friend who had not visited Malta and we were able to visit all the major sites. We had some very good meals at the restaurants in Mellieha and could recommend L'Amigo and the Hilltop. The only negative comment is about the Bus Service to Valletta - buses often were full by the time they got to Mellieha and went past the bus stop and we had a number of longish waits!

I can recommend the Horizon and especially would like to mention the good support and attention that David provides

Not as we exspected

  • 2 of 5

We chose these apartments based on the five star reviews on this site.

1. Having booked Horizon #1 just for two of us, on arrival at the Apartment we were given Horizon#3 a 3 bedroom apartment (At no extra cost,) and no explanation as to why the change of apartments.

2. The apartment was clean and tidy however :-

A) We could not cook a meal in the oven as the thermostat control knob was missing (The grill did work) .

B) Although there was a washing machine there was no ironing board or iron.

C) The lounge furniture was not what we would have expected with so many 5 star reviews.

The power point behind the Television was in our opinion in a poor state.

D) As for the apartment being well maintained the integral dishwasher and washing machine had no front covers.

E) In the main bedroom the power socket by the wardrobe was also in a very poor state. As this apartment is probably aimed at families and families with young children, therefore the power sockets should be maintained to a higher standard.

3) David was very helpful with all aspects of booking the holiday but we feel that the apartment was a disappointment.

Owner's Response: Thank you for submitting your review towards our property as personally am really disappointed and feeling sorry that we were not able to meet your expectations. However, I always made my available either by e-mail or telephone and would have appreciated more if I was contacted with these issues during your stay rather than when you are back home. Surely you would not had to go through this, as personally I strive to make all our guests welcome and have an enjoyable stay with us.

Amazing view every morning and night

  • 5 of 5

The apartment has everything we needed. We were 6 peaople and we stayed in 3 bedrooms flat with a huge living room on the 2nd floor. The place was clean and well equipped. David is cheerful and helpful person. He was always on time for us and available when we called or texted. The view from the balcony was a great thing to start a new day with a cup of tea in the hand. The apartment is located in new builded area around 25 minutes from the beach and less than 10 minutes from the bars and shops. From the terrace we had a chance to watch an amazing fireworks show and clear sky full of stars.

Mellieha - is truly a destination for all seasons!

Mellieha is one of Malta's most picturesque tourist destinations. The town centre boasts of its splendid hotels, fine restaurants and traditional cute shops. It has a majestic baroque church (built in late 19th century) and various cultural organizations, including band clubs, sports clubs, an orchestra, various religious societies, a parish community centre and an environmental pressure group.

Other than the mentioned sites, Mellieha is also known for its wonderful and golden beaches that make it a unique holiday destination for many. Water Sports are one of the many activities that one can enjoy during their time here, along with Scuba Diving and Fishing. At night, walks on the beach is traditional and festivals organized by the Local Council are sure to be of enjoyment for everyone.

In Malta, feasts are a huge tradition and Mellieha's main festive season occurs in the first two weeks of September.

Other Activities: clubbing and live entertainment, quad bike

Ski: MELLIEHA is surrounded by numerous bays as Mellieha Bay also known as GHADIRA (sounds like aedyrae) is the islands longest sandy beach. there is a numerous water sports outlets operating from the shoreline. They offer a variety of activities and services inwatersports for everyones pleasure. this beach nearly reached a BLUE Flag status and the local council is realy working hard to obtain tis certification. A really family beach with plenty of facilities. Very easily accessable buy bus or on foot going down the hill.; 1.5 kms from the village centre!

ARMIER and LITTLE ARMIER are an other two small beaches situated in the Marfa Ridge facing Comino and Gozo. Less popular but nice and fairly busy in peak season like any other beach specially on week ends. More accessable by car. Save place for children.

PARADISE BAY a small and clean beach not suitable for the elderly or the infirm as a fairly awkward access to reach the beach. Recommended to the young at heart! A natural GEM
