Very pleased with the accommodation apart from there only being 1 sheet on the bed which did not fit well and no cover on the mattress, the bed itself was comfortable and king sized

Spent 4 weeks at the apartments. This was our third stay at the Horizon Apartments and as always found them to be excellent. All are fully equipped, clean and very convenient to Mellieha and transportation. David is the most charming and affable host one could wish for. Nothing is too much trouble for him and he makes everyone so welcome. We will continue to stay at the apartments whenever we visit our favourite holiday destination Malta.

It varies.

Excellent; part 1 of review

  • 5 of 5

There is as I have found a character limit for these reviews. I wrote a long review, pasted it, and found it truncated. I tried to contact Homeaway just to let them know, but it's impractical; their help pages make contacting them onerous.

I am then posting this review in a number of parts.

Part 1

I moved to my apartment in The Horizon Apartments in early January. I stayed for two months in total.

I chose the apartment because the price was good and the interior looked pleasant; decorated by someone with classic tastes who knows who to make a home comfortable to be in.

Mr. Bonanno, the owner, was clear and communicative through email and the booking was easily and effortless.

I will dive ahead a bit here and write of him first; to wit, although I may be wrong, I am of the view that he is an absolutely solid, reliable, trustworthy, honourable and straightforward man. I am fully of the view he will not try to pull one over on you; if he offers you a price, whether or not you know it to be right, he's giving you a proper price, not taking advantage. You can put yourself safely in his hands.

This to me is one the vital factors in making a booking; the other is the quality and pleasentness of the place itself.

I arrived at the airport, with a taxi as arranged waiting for me - Mr. Bonanno in fact has a couple of businesses on the island, and the taxi was driven by one of his uncles. The price was good (I took other taxis during my stay); it wasn't an unwelcome bundled extra.

If you know what you're doing, you can take the bus from the airport to a stop which is abut 800m from the apartment, and although it's 800m, it's downhill all the way. However, you would probably not want to do this, with your luggage, if it was the first time you were ever doing this. The bus would cost about three euro, the taxi is about thirty (for a 45 minute or so journey - it's longer than you'd think).

The apartment building is three (if I recall correctly) stories and a semi-underground carpark for maybe five or six cars. There's also plenty of curb-side parking, although I have no idea if permits are required.

There is a swimming pool on the roof, but it is open only during the summer months, so I never saw it in use. The roof has an excellent view, and I think some deckchairs and so on - but it was the winter months, and cooler, and so I only went up there once or twice, and so I can't really remember now.

Fantastic apartment

  • 5 of 5

Outstanding 1 bedroomed apartment in a residential quiet area day and night with great views over the rest of the Santa Maria estate and Mellieha bay. Everything that was described on the advert was correct, clean property and well maintained (the only issue we had was how to work the touch operated oven hob as English was the only language the instructions didn’t come in but we managed it eventually). David (manager) was brilliant and was always available if needed (we didn't) as he was contactable by phone and email or at the apartment block on nearly a daily basis. Supermarket, other shops and bus stop a 10 minute walk away with the bars and restaurants of Mellieha 15 minutes. Approximately a 15-20 minute walk to the beach in Mellieha bay. I would recommend this accommodation to anyone and would return if coming back to Mellieha.

Mellieha - is truly a destination for all seasons!

Mellieha is one of Malta's most picturesque tourist destinations. The town centre boasts of its splendid hotels, fine restaurants and traditional cute shops. It has a majestic baroque church (built in late 19th century) and various cultural organizations, including band clubs, sports clubs, an orchestra, various religious societies, a parish community centre and an environmental pressure group.

Other than the mentioned sites, Mellieha is also known for its wonderful and golden beaches that make it a unique holiday destination for many. Water Sports are one of the many activities that one can enjoy during their time here, along with Scuba Diving and Fishing. At night, walks on the beach is traditional and festivals organized by the Local Council are sure to be of enjoyment for everyone.

In Malta, feasts are a huge tradition and Mellieha's main festive season occurs in the first two weeks of September.

Other Activities: clubbing and live entertainment, quad bike

Ski: MELLIEHA is surrounded by numerous bays as Mellieha Bay also known as GHADIRA (sounds like aedyrae) is the islands longest sandy beach. there is a numerous water sports outlets operating from the shoreline. They offer a variety of activities and services inwatersports for everyones pleasure. this beach nearly reached a BLUE Flag status and the local council is realy working hard to obtain tis certification. A really family beach with plenty of facilities. Very easily accessable buy bus or on foot going down the hill.; 1.5 kms from the village centre!

ARMIER and LITTLE ARMIER are an other two small beaches situated in the Marfa Ridge facing Comino and Gozo. Less popular but nice and fairly busy in peak season like any other beach specially on week ends. More accessable by car. Save place for children.

PARADISE BAY a small and clean beach not suitable for the elderly or the infirm as a fairly awkward access to reach the beach. Recommended to the young at heart! A natural GEM
