Reviews from some of our Guests
My 18 year old daughter stayed here and has absolutely loved it.
She told me she’s rather stay here than any 5 star hotel (and she has stayed in a couple)! She also said she’d go back to Malta just to stay here.
She said “the accommodation and hospitality is just perfect”.
They have been incredibly accommodating with checking in/out times which is very reassuring as this is my daughters first solo trip.
I can’t thank them enough!
