77 Apartments are family-run fully-furnished apartments located right in the heart of the tranquil seaside village of Marsascala. The apartments are a 5-minute walk away from the bus terminus, restaurants, bars, promenade, bank, church, groceries and all other amenities.
Known to locals as “Wied il-Għajn”, Marsascala is located in the southern part of the island and boasts plenty of amazing swimming spots with clear blue Mediterranean sea. All these spots are within
walking distance of the apartments including the rocky “Beachcomber beach” where you can swim right next to the cliffs and the rest of the rocky Marsascala coastline. Some villagers still produce salt from the age-old salt pans etched in the rocks. There is also a small sandy beach (St. Thomas Bay or “Ramla”) that is perfect for families with kids. The newly-opened Sant’Antin Family Adventure Park featuring picnic areas, play areas, outdoor gym equipment, rock-
climbing and abseiling areas, a dog park, an amphitheatre and a water park is also very popular with young visitors.
Marsascala is the perfect place for endless walks. Apart from the sea promenade that runs along the coastline, it is also very close to the historical cities (Vittoriosa, Senglea, Cospicua and Kalkara) and Marsaxlokk, Malta’s authentic fishing village where you can find Malta’s best seafood and the gorgeous secluded swimming spot of St. Peter's Pool, is only a 45-minute walk away. Getting to Valletta, Malta’s capital city (UNESCO world heritage), is easy with a direct 30-minute bus ride.
Diving Schools and English Language schools are also within walking distance of the apartment.
The airport is only 20 mins away from Marsascala. A discounted airport pickup can be arranged directly to the apartments upon request.
The bus service in Malta is cheap and covers most of the island. It is recommended to rent a car in order to explore the nicest parts of Malta. Driving in Malta (a former British colony) is on the left-hand side.
Renting a bicycle for a day or two is recommended to visit the areas surrounding Marsascala.
Smoking is strictly allowed only in the balcony
I'm very sorry to say that we wouldn't want to stay in this apartment again. It's location is great (very close to the centre of Marsaskala and many bus stops) but we experienced just too many disappointments. Firstly, the apartment itself was very clean, but the dish washer and the washing machine smelled horrible and were very dirty. Their doors were closed, so no fresh air could go inside. We first had to run a washing program on a high temperature to clean the machines, but even after 2 runs they still weren't very clean and they didn't smell nice. Secondly, the provided towels looked clean, but they smelled damp and moist. We had to wash them first before we could use them, but after one shower they started to smell bad again. Another big issue was an ant invasion! They were everywhere in the apartment, you couldn't leave any food on the table or in the kitchen without ants crawling in and around it. Lastly, the water heater in the bathroom didn't allow two people to take a relaxing shower. You had to take very quick showers, otherwise the water pressure and warm water would run out. The heater didn't seem to be set on maximum heating, so maybe that was the problem. Everything considered, we experienced to many disappointments to stay here again.
The location is great, close to the sea and close to the main attractions of Malta.
Our host provided us with very accurate information about the location of the apartment. It was easy to find and easy accessible.
The apartment looked clean at first sight, but what worried me was that I couldn't find any detergent, soap or other stuff to clean up with. The dishwasher seemed to be a bit musty too. So if you decide to stay here, make sure you bring your own.
The road in front tends to get quite busy during the night, which shouldn't be a problem is you know how to turn on the airconditioning (unfortunately we couldn't find the remote control)
Charlotte, please note that, as advertised in our ad, AC is OPTIONAL at an extra cost. As such, the remote would have been provided if you requested it.
Also, in a self-catering apartment, people do provide their own detergent, yes.
Hope this clarifies your issues.
