“What we hoped for and more.”
Reviewed 22 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Before I booked this apartment, I have google mapped the whole shore of Malta in search of the sandy beach (and there are only a few) for our 4 year old daughter. After having found the Pretty Bay, I proceeded to look for an accommodation to stay at. I came across a few offers, but Angolina apartments definitely caught my eye. I loved the modern look on the photos, spacious terraced balcony, and what is most important the view over the beach.
We are a family of 3, and this is a perfect location for a family or a couple, also the flat is big enough. We were pleasantly surprised about the air conditioning, as it hadn't been originally specified during the booking.
My husband totally relied on my holiday search and in general he was not disappointed. However, I feel, what is worth mentioning is the port. Before I booked the apartment, I was aware that the port harbour is just in front of the apartment and very close to the beach. But on the map it is quite difficult to assess the distance. It was much closer than originally assumed. It didn't affect our holiday at all, I knew it would be there. But for my husband it was a bit of a surprise (although I told him about that) which he got over a few days later.
Apart from that, the beach and water was not affected by the port at all. There was no noise as such, maybe sometimes there was a very milk thunder like noise in the evening, but it did not bother us at all. In fact, the port gave some charm to the whole location. My daughter loved observing ships and cranes.
Another point that I believe is worth mentioning is the utensils. It is a very small, but, in my opinion, important part of the stay. We have originally planned to have most meals by ourselves. We didn't want to travel around too much, neither we rented a car. So, most cooking was happening at home. However, it was a bit of a challenge. First, there was no chopping board, and I didn't feel comfortable using the surface to scratch it. So I used a plate instead. Also, there were only two knives provided, one bread knife, and one small butter like knife. There were thongs, wine bottle opener, plenty of cutlery, cups and glasses, two pans and two frying pans. But what I was really lacking was a bigger knife, chopping board, and a colander. I know these are minor things, but I feel like they are essential when you are doing self-catering. Other than that, the kitchen area was well equipped, with fridge, freezer, hob, oven, extractor, plenty of storage space.
The town Birzebugga has everything you need. It has small grocery shops for basic shopping, bakery, butchers, pharmacy, restaurants and cafes, take-aways, and so on. The bus network is very good too, and it takes about 25 minutes to pop on a direct bus to Valetta. The town is full of local people, so it doesn't feel touristy as such. We were trying to find some english-speaking friends for m daughter on the beach to play with, and it was quite a challenge, as most common language was Maltese. Although most Maltese children speak English, there was a bit of a cultural barrier.
Overall we are very pleased with our stay. The booking was easy, so was the arrival to the property. A lady downstairs explained where everything is, very friendly and very kind. It was very pleasant to do business with the manager/owner of this apartment.

“Exactly what we hoped for”

The place was absolutely lovely. A perfect place to stay, with quick and easy access to the beach, which was beautiful. The balcony was perfect to enjoy the sun when it got too late for the beach, as well as being great to sit out on and enjoy the view during a meal or whatever you decide to have. Whether it be made by yourself or from one of the nearby restaurants. The nearby harbor did not bother us too much. There is a lovely lady who is very helpful and friendly downstairs who was able to help us with anything that we needed.

Overall, if we visited Malta again, we would definitely stay here again. It is exactly what we enjoy, as it gives us the freedom to do what we want, being close to the beach, as well as being great value.

“In front of industrial harbour”
Reviewed 3 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

The appartement was very clean, nice, very close to the beach, but also very close to the industrial harbour. So, it was always a bit noisy.
