Dopo la Cittadella andiamo a Xaghra, dove si trovano i templi neolitici di Ggantia, due templi dalla pianta a trifoglio, che richiamano l' idea che potessero essere coperti da absidi. Un'ottima cosa è il pilastrino-audioguida che illustra il sito archeologico in modo esauriente. Interessante il nome di questi templi perché si credeva che li avesse …

Life is never predictable

We have been enjoying our time in Malta, but sadly, Mark has been called back to work in Sydney and left a few days after we arrived. The boys and I have been exploring the island and soaking ourselves in Maltese culture, while Mark has been immersed in the AFP.

So, our sailing trip has halted but the European Land Tour is about to …

The Quizzly Bears

... and cream in my shake!

The boys sadly had to go back to work, so I found the church that was closed last night, and tried to look inside again. Unfortunately a funeral was happening, so I backed away slowly. I seem to have a knack for visiting churches at inappropriate times!

In Sliema I purchased an exquisite Swarovski rabbit holding pink tulips for Mum. Lars and I both chipped in, because she deserves ...

Beer pong, birthdays and buddies being blue

... that had a special going. The gym opens out onto the sea front – very idyllic.

Jon went home to see his wife, and Egil, Lars and I went for some ciders at the Hole in the Wall pub in Sliema. We had good chats and then all agreed to go to Good Thaimes for some delicious Thai food. I was happy to take Egil and Lars to my 'local!’

Unfortunately Suchi had just lost his job that day, but ...

Magical mystery tour of the four M's!

... Damien about cool things to visit in Australia. When we arrived the storm clouds were rolling in over the water, which made for very dramatic photos of the Ghajn Tuffieha Tower.

A good looking Venezuelan guy climbed up the small tower I was standing on to take some panoramas, and we chatted for a couple of minutes. He seemed really cool, and was staying for the month in Malta, so I really regret not exchanging emails.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Bayview Hotel & Apartments Il Gzira

    Not bad, Could do better.


    We stayed at the Bayview from 17th to 24th October and i would agree with the previous review about the breakfast but also the evening meal. It would of been useful if you knew what was on offer.

    We did have a balcony with a view of the Bay but this was a side view but still plesant.

    We were with my Mum and Dad and the also had a balcony but this was the size of a postage stamp and overlooked an internal court yard.

    The Roof top pool area needs a mention also. The view from here is the best bit, the water was cold, but what can you expect for October, the small kids pool was full of flies. On the whole not a bad Hotel Malta has a lot to offer but could do with some desent road signs

    Enjoyed our stay


    On the whole we found this hotel acceptable, although to our minds, not quite worthy of its three star rating. We found the staff very friendly and helpful and this remained the case throughout our stay. I was actually surprised that even the cleaners were quick to say goodmorning. In terms of staff service this hotel is quite good.



    Stayed in Bayview apartment for 4 nights, can highly recommend it. The location is excellent - on the Strand in Sliema, close to buses, and Sliema ferry, and plenty of bars and restaurants nearby. In fact there is a bus stop right outside the hotel. We stayed on B & B basis, and have no complaints about the breakfast - as well as cold meats, cheese, cereal, fruit, yogurt, there was hot food also, bacon, egg etc.. Also have no complaints about the service we received, everyone was very friendly and helpful.

    Beware of the Teenagers


    The Bayview plays host to teenagers who come to Malta to learn the english language at language school in Sliema. But it may be more appropriate to teach manners instead.

    We will be returning


    after reading the last review dater 1st june, we didnt know what to expect although we have visited malta many times before.

    Will Be Back


    We've just returned from the Bayview in Sliema. We found the hotel to be great, yes ok the food got a bit boring but it was always plentiful with choices, anyway there was always the fruit and ice-cream from the van across the road which had to be tasted to be believed.

    Back to the hotel it was in a great situation and we found no complaints with cleanliness. Our sheets were changed very regularly and we always had clean towels. The staff were very friendly and most helpful especially those in the restaurant.

    We will certainly go back to this hotel as it was very reasonable and excellent value for money.

    Good location, poor service


    I have to say that I wasn't impressed by the service or quality of the Bayview Hotel in Sliema.

    The breakfast was poor (well, unless you have a love of bright pink processed meats and powdered eggs), our towels weren't always clean, the bed sheets were grubby and the I found the staff generally pretty unhelpful.

    On the plus side, it's well located for Sliema, St Julians, Valetta and the boat excursions, and the bay view rooms do have a lovely view of the creek.

    If you can put up with the minuses the location is good, but I suspect you could get better value with a self catering apartment in the same location.

    Super stay


    I have just returned from a stay at the Bayview hotel and can thoroughly recommend the hotel, especially a seaview. I consider for the extra few Maltese lire, it is worth the cost. The hotel has just been refurbished and is extremely modern. The rooms are very clean and the staff are extremely pleasant. The rooftop pool area is a comfortable place to relax. The only downside is the rather boring breakfast. However I can live with that. The position of the hotel is also useful for all boat excursions and for buses to many parts of the island. A super stay in Malta.




    Great value


    we stayed in the bayview for a week what a bargain it was right on the sea front in sliema had a lovely roof with pool what views .also had a indoor pool which was always clean 'power showers in the room and if you know malta you will know what a bonus that is stay there with confidence
