“Lovely apartment but didn't live up to expectations”

We holiday 4 times a year, consider ourselves very friendly and always make the best of where we stay so please take this as an honest review.
We were greeted at the airport by Mario who was lovely. He took us to the apartment and showed us where everything was including a short drive around the area. The apartment was lovely although be aware the balcony is beside a busy street which can be noisy at times.

Unfortunately we arrived on Saturday night and everything was closed on Sunday so we only had tea coffee and water until Monday morning. The apartment is only 2 minutes from a large shopping centre which had a good supermarket and all the shops you would want. The harbour front and town centre with shops and restaurants were only 5 minutes away so the location is very good.

The downsides are the pool area shades over by lunchtime and we had to pay for sunbeds at the Lidos nearby. To be fair this is probably only a problem for sun worshippers as you can always go sightseeing in the afternoon!

There was also noisy building works going on both at and around the apartments - for 4 days we had a very noisy compressor going all day in front of our balcony which was very frustrating. The pool area is also surrounded by building works as they are building new apartments beside Fort Cambridge.

Maybe we were just unlucky but on our last day we returned to the apartment to shower etc and be picked up at 6.30 by Mario's wife, Anna, who Mario had told us would be taking us to the airport. We were met by Anna at our appartment who was extremely rude to us. She didn't seem to know we had paid to keep the apartment until 6 pm and told us we would have to leave as there were people arriving in an hour!

This was sorted after a few phone calls to Mario but no apology for their mistake which was very disappointing as we found Mario to be very pleasant and professional.

We thank you for your four star review. Of course, your comments encourage us to continue in our attempts to excel in our service to customers, as can be confirmed by the other reviews. Of course, we are to blame for the misunderstanding of knocking at your door at 5.15pm on your departure date when your late checkout was actually 6.00pm (normal check out is at 12.00pm). We agree it is rude to do so but of course, we did subsequently honour the agreed late check out time of 6.00pm but nonetheless hereby apologize for possibly disturbing you unnecessarily during your holiday. We do provide a welcome pack free of charge including mineral water, tea, coffee, sugar, fresh milk, a loaf of bread and toilet paper. We indicate during check-in that the supermarkets in Malta are closed on Sundays but also indicate the various bottle shops in the vicinity which offer an alternative, albeit reduced, service on Sundays. We are also pleased that your conclusions that the apartment did not live up to your expectations were reached not because of any fault in relation to the internal aspects of the apartment itself, including its outside terrace, but as a result of extraneous factors which are of course beyond our control, such as possible building works in the area. Unfortunately, we only got to know about this in the review itself: had you informed us about these during your stay, we would have ensured that the relative building works are only carried out prudently by the relative contractor and within the parameters of the local building regulations, which do not allow for such works to be carried out during certain hours of the day during the Summer season. The Fort Cambridge swimming pool is partly in the shade during the afternoon but I can confirm that, during the period of this particular stay, parts of the swimming pool and of the deck area enjoy the sun until very late in the afternoon.
