Just got back from a 2 week stay in Xemxija, Malta. We stayed at the Porto Del Sol in a 2 bedroom apartment on the 4th floor. We had been somewhat worried about noise levels after reading some other reviews about this place- but we had absolutely no trouble at all with noise levels. The apartment is basic, but very...

We stayed in a one bedroom studio apartment on the 1st Floor. The view from our apartment was stunning overlooking Xemxija bay. The room was basic, containing a small kitchenette and a wet room shower. Shower curtain had mouldy stains and it needed replacing. The apartment itself is dated and is in need of modernising. However, the price was unbeatable.... More

This hotel is located on the Xemxija Bay. Literally on the bay. You get the most amazing views onto the picturesque water with Luzzu boats scattered accross sparkles of sunshine. There is something special about seeing the sunset with a glass of wine, whilst sitting in the balcony with a significant other. So. If you want amazing views you need... More

The traffic noise goes on all day and well into the night and can make sitting on the balcony for the really lovely views a bit of a challenge. That said, for the... More

The hostel is very easy to find, there is even a direct bus connection from the airport and bus stop in front of the building. We had a basic room with amazing bay view, restaurant serves tasty local food. Staff was really helpful when my friend's lost luggage was delivered from the airport.

It is very basic place to stay in. The busy Road is Just outside, which means "bring your earplugs". Also the bus stop is literally just outside.
