I wanted to organise a getaway for some foreign friends to show them my beautiful island. There were 8 of us in all, so I wanted somewhere that would give us the space we needed. I chose Villa Sunview in Rabat.
The villa has great communal areas where we could hang about and have a few laughs. We had a few BBQs by the pool in the evening, few beers by the pool during the day; we actually spent most of our time by the pool. Bedrooms are all air conditioned, so even my friends from colder climes had no problem sleeping.
Some of the guys were not so sure about staying in Rabat, but I promised them it will be a more authentic experience there away from the usual touristy areas. I got them on the phone with Paul and Martin who explained the area in detail. They even mentioned a few cafes that I wasn't familiar with.
My friends loved it, and most said they'll be back with their own families, and that it's better to stay there rather than the tacky seaside resorts.
