“superb location for great family holiday” We arrived on Friday afternoon and were met by a very friendly guy who we called from the airport to say we had arrived. He met us at the plaza near the apartment and showed us around the accomodation which was spotless and very comfortable, with tasteful modern decor. We went mid August and the weather was fantastic.
There is a shared pool at Tigne which never gets overcrowded so it is always relaxing and there is no fighting for sunbeds! There is a shopping centre across the plaza which was fantastic for our teenage daughters as it is very secure and in close proximity to the accomodation. In addition there is a supermarket there as well as an M&S simply food! In Sliema itself,just along the road, there are resturants,where you pay about the same as at home for pasta for 4. Sliema also has shops like topshop but also beautiful traditional buildings and churches. Valetta is seen from the pool and from Sliema while you walk along, where you can at all times see the beautiful St Pauls dome across the water. Buses are reliable but very slow but the numbers 11.12 and 13 get you to most places.Swimming with dolphins in mediterrano is great but the 'park' itself is quite tired looking and there is little else to see.We did snorkelling just near to the apartment, where the sea is really boyant and the water clear, so fish easily seen.Also recommend Blue Grotto on other side of Malta but plan your buses carefully-taxi too expensive.
Overall a great holiday with loads to do for younger tennagers.
