This maisonette is situated in a complex with direct access to the beach. It offers excellent standard of private holiday accommodation in Malta for travelers seeking high standard privately owned apartments on a self catering basis with superb location. All daily amneties are included.
Watersedge Complex is located in the southern part of Malta, in Marsascala where there are several specialized fish and meat restaurant, bars, long promenade and leisure facilities. It is ideal for 1 or 2 week holiday breaks. Self drive cars can also be arranged. Cleaning can also be provided at an extra cost.
The property is designed for space and comfort: looks very impressive at first glance, generally well-equipped. On website it states “All daily amneties are included.” , listing internet and air conditioning with others. This was deceptive, as when we received the booking confirmation it stated these are in fact extra costs and it is only apparent if you hover your mouse over them on the facilities page – not really obvious.
There was a small balcony off the living room, which when we arrived had no chairs around the table and only two loungers with no sun shade. There were four of us on holiday but we could not all sit together in the space. The owner said to use the upper roof top instead. This area is astro-turfed and a very nice space, although there were only three loungers so again not easy for us to be together until we navigated a very narrow stair well and carried a spare lounger from the small balcony up to the roof. There was one large sunshade up here, also a BBQ but it was filled with dog ends of cigarettes and the large table had a broken central strut, along with a number of three legged chairs.
On top floor of adjacent block is a second pool with more loungers, but only one sunshade, and this was broken. It’s a shame as the pool was lovely and you can tell with a bit more care to keeping things maintained it would really be a good facility.
Our interpretation of “beach” is not “rocky outcrop”, but if you are happy with rocks and accessing the seas by steps then it would be fine for you.
The view straight ahead from the apartment is truly beautiful, the sea is so blue and relaxing to listen to, which is more than can be said for the building site right next door. The building works are the same company as the apartment owners, so I feel a bit deceived that it was not mentioned when we booked, as we could have then made an informed choice about whether we wanted to be woken by building work noise every week day of our holiday.
This complex has great potential and if these things were improved it would really be a good stay. Inside some things need a bit of maintenance: the area round the shower was dirty with a buildup of scum and scale, and there were foot prints and marks on some of the walls and blood stains on one of the pillows. All this could be easily fixed and would make a huge difference.
Our family had four apartments here as we were here for a family wedding. Our family of 8 had the Duplex apartment, another had the three bedroom next to the downstairs pool, so between us we had some of the best apartments. The Duplex has a small balcony and a large upstairs terrace with large table and chairs, ideal for sitting out in the evening as the sun goes down. Very roomy for 8 people as it had a large kitchen adjoining living room. We had the most wonderful week and so pleased we picked this accommodation which was clean, comfortable, well equipped, with the most fantastic views. Near a small shop for essentials and a larger one is just a bit further along the road. 15 minute walk to the nearest couple of restaurants and slightly longer, but beautiful walk, along the harbour to Marsaskala. For groups this is an excellent choice of booking and would definitely stay here again.
Very spacious accommodation with lovely views. Great location within walking distance to restaurants and beaches. Loved the walk to Marsaskala. Beautiful swimming places. Very lovely, friendly owners, who sorted out any problems straight away. We were a large group in two apartments, so the accommodation was perfect for us. We all enjoyed the outside area and swimming pool on the 3rd floor ... great for sunbathing and relaxing. Would have liked a mirror in our bedroom ... but all the other rooms had one. Huge thanks to Rosanne for putting up with us!
Amazing highly finished self catering apartment in a superb location overlooking the sea. There is direct access to the private pool and the sea. Shops and restaurants are within walking distance. It is also very safe for children. We will definitely be coming back next year with our friends. I've read previous comments before booking and I would also like to thank the management especially Rosanne for ever being so helpful and making our stay very pleasant.
Ein hervorragendes Service, beste Betreuung und - an allererster Stelle - ein fantastisches Apartment. Traumhafter Blick, sauber, gut ausgestattet, groß, absolut ruhig! Wir kommen gerne wieder.
When we arrived at the apartment the secretary we had been in contact with by email met us to show us around the apartment. She gave us 2 keys and was very hasty in concluding the introduction to the point where we felt uncomfortable to ask further questions. I agree with the earlier review in that no hamper was provided, so we had to purchase literally everything for the stay.
That afternoon when we came back from the supermarket we discovered that the set of key we had taken with us and that was given to us by the secretary was wrong. This meant that we were locked out of the property. When we called the owner he said he would be there shortly, but 10 mins later a cleaner showed up and tried the keys to no avail. In the scorching hot sun, with 2 toddlers and boxes full of perishable foods this was not the greatest start to our holiday.
We had to yell over the windows and balcony to try waking my grandma who was napping to open the door for us. This matter was never resolved by the owner or his team. The cleaner promised to bring a new set of keys but this was never received.
In addition the communal showers had no shield and so the floor was flooded with every shower. They could do with increasing the intensity of the shower head too.
Fully equipped kitchen/ very spacious, great views. We enjoyed doing exercise on the terrace and even had a BBQ. The pool did not look like it had been cleaned in a while with lots of bugs and mouldy grit.
The local area was very lack lustre to say the least. There is very little for tourists e.g no bike hiring, nowhere to hire fishing equipment, no water sports. You have to travel out of the town to do anything!
If you want an accommodation that is comfortable, modern and spacious then this is for you. However if you want a management that treats you like a welcome guest and goes to every length to resolve any issues with the property, then run a mile from this place!
We also stayed at the owners property in Sliema and the customer service we received at the end of our stay was absolutely grotesque!
