Great Location & Spacious Apartment
Perfect location for us and two friends. Apartment is spacious and well equipped ( though a large coffee machine /coffee maker would be preferred. The one supplied is certainly not big enough for 4 people and also does not fit on the gas hob!). On booking this apartment, we expected to make use of the lift (one of our party had been experiencing back trouble), but on arrival this was not working, and most certainly had not been working for sometime. Something which we felt we should have been notified of, as the property description clearly states the property does have a lift. Fortunately, it did not prove a problem for us all in the end, but do please ask Owner to be certain, if you will have any difficulty walking up two flights of stairs. Apartment is located with an easy walk to Sliema to catch ferry taxi to Valetta and close to the bus stops & hop on-hop off bus. Good selection of restaurants. Lovely view from balcony but as east facing no sun in the evening but you only need to walk around the bay to find local bars to enjoy the late evening sunshine. Plenty of storage in the wardrobes and hangers provided. As we visited in May, we didn't need to use the air conditioning but units were in both bedrooms and the lounge area. There was some outside street noise to be heard if you are using the back bedroom but this did not disturb us too much. Both bedrooms are far enough away from the front road so we weren't disturb by any road noise. Would certainly recommend.
Lovely Locale & Spacious Modern Flat
Perfect location. View from balcony was well enjoyed. Flat is modern, spacious and overall well equipped (would suggest extra towels, oven mitts, larger drinking glasses, air freshener for hallway bathroom). Owners were fairly prompt to address any concerns. Lift doesn't always work so be prepared to use stairs, which was not an issue, but for elderly, etc., worth checking. Rooms have plenty closet space, and bedrooms nicely situated far end away from kitchen and sitting room. Air conditioning was top notch! Overall would def recommend & book again.
Thank you for time and interest in posting a review on our property. We greatly appreciate the favourable comments and look forward to welcoming you again in the near future!
Till a few years ago , St Julians was a quiet fishing village. Nowadays development has changed it completely and it spreads all round St. Georges Bay, Spinola Bay, and Balluta Bay.. Most of the elegant houses along the shore line have gone to be replaced by blocks of apartments, restaurants, bars , cafes and hotels. The roads leading to St Julians village (now a town) proper remain largely untouched. The best preserved are in the area of Balluta Bay. A few villas with beautiful facades and large gardens. One villa has been converted into a restaurant forming part of Le Meridien Hotel. There is also the large neo-gothic Carmelite Chuch in the midst of small houses that used to be summer residences for the rich Valletta residents. There is a large block of apartments built in the art nouveau style overlooking the square where you can sit and have a coffe or drink and watch the world go by.
Back in picturesque Spinola Bay there are still a number of old boat houses belonging to the fishermen that still remain with their traditional fishing boats sheltering in the bay. Some boat houses have been converted into restaurants which are quieter and romantic. The bay is particularly lovely in the evenings with the lights of the restaurants and street lighting reflecting in the calm water of the bay. On the other side of the bay is the promenade (very popular) which goes all the way to Sliema and beyond. Ideal for an evening stroll or to sit at a bar/cafe and people watch.
Up the hill you will find Portomaso - a private yacht marina with restaurants and bars, a shopping complex and apartments (all very upmarket) with a lovely atmosphere. Nearby is the Hilton. There are a number of 5* hotels - all overlooking the sea on the coast north of Paceville. There is also a Casino at the Dragonara and another at Portomaso .
Saint Julian's is a popular vacation spot on the coast of Malta. The small town successfully blends its fishing village charm with its tourist center. Latin architecture, such as Spinola Palace, built in 1688, and the Old Parish Church are popular historical sites. Divers will enjoy exploring shipwrecks via the Divewise Center. The renovated Paceville district, a former military haunt in the 1930s, is now the hub of Saint Julian's nightlife with an array of restaurants, bars, and clubs.
