... still wasn't up past my knees, and we all know I'm short.
I swam for a bit, then played around with my brother and sister. They dragged my around in the water. I crawled around on my arms until they burnt with the effort. We chased each other around, which was nice. I enjoyed spending the time with them to be honest.
I got back out and lay in the sun to dry off (forgetting to ...
... that was blowing into my face, but then I noticed a small tower, a smaller cousin of the one on Dallas Road. Here I am, getting soaked, hair in my face, rain starting to beat down, so what do I do? Run up the tower, of course. I started laughing at the total feeling of exhilaration from the weather, and turned around, expecting to see my friend none too pleased at having been dragged out to a ferry terminal just to get soaked. How wrong I was. He was grinning like ...
... easy having a hop-on-hop-off ticket that hit up all the major spots on Gozo than try to mess about with public transport and possibly standing in the pouring rain. Bus ticket bought, we boarded the ferry and set about exploring.
It was like being on a scaled down version of a BC Ferry, and I was feeling pretty excited. It was S’s first time being on a ferry, and I feel like it was probably a novelty for him. We decided to go out onto ...

I've become fairly adept at managing him, but there are still somethings I can't help. After paying for our day ticket (€1.50 for a day pass that will take you all over the island of Malta), we squished onto the bus. My friend's horror was almost palatable.

A girl was playing some really great song covers while we were there, and she sung Drops of Jupiter by Train, which inspired me to try harder, as I am trying to learn this song too! Afterwards ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Mellieha Bay Hotel
Go for the View!
Having arrived late at night I was put off by the internal aspect of the hotel as well as the basic standard of the room.
The next morning however we woke up to warm sunshine and a fantastic view of the bay, this wiped away all doubts that the initial impression may have caused.
The food is good if not very advanturous, there is plenty of it and is always hot enough.
The hotel was clean and the pools were of a very high standard.
This was a great base for a first visit to the island, you can really see why people return time and again, A great family environment!
Definately not 4 Star
Hotel looks very tired from the outside and is need of refurbishment Food was always cold at every meal from the buffet servery Entertainment was not very good Television stations available were rubbish Staff were very friendly and helpful
This hotel was great, clean, good choice of food, view from room is lovley. would love to go back for a 3rd time but the kids are bit older now, so would be much more expensive,as my 15 yr old could not share our room anymore.
upon arriving on malta we were told that building was going on @ our hotel! we could stay the night & move the next day or go straight to another hotel. having 2 small children we decided to go to another & that was the melleiha! when we walked in we were disapointed having spent the last few hours waiting around but the staff were so welcoming & they couldnt do enough to make us welcome & they werent even expecting us. Once rooms were sorted out we were taken to our room, exhausted and unhappy we all went to bed. When the curtains were pulled back the view across the bay was astounding!!! i have never had a view like it!! the hotel turned out to be so welcoming & friendly! having 5 different types of pool to choose from & a private very clean beach, the children were in there element. food was very interesting as they made lots of local dishes as it was a buffet u could choose how much u had! this holiday was 3 years ago & we have never forgoten it, we loved it so much that we are going back this summer '04 & we cant wait!!!!!!!!!
Definitely not 4 star
This is definitely not a 4 star hotel, it is nearer a 2 star. The rooms are very basic, the entertainment is average and our room did not have a safe but we had to use the safes by the reception area. These safes are not big enough to take average size cameras. This hotel has a lot to do to bring it up to a proper 4 star standard.
Looks can decieve
We visited Malta from 16th until 30th March 2004 for our 25th Anniversary. Entering the Hotel grounds down the potholed road, we entered the unassuming entrance, and were directed to our basic room.
Mistake made ? In short a big no. Excellent food, entertainment.
Friendly helpful staff, spotlessly clean. Hotel faultless, would we come back ? Yes. If you visit Malta Make Mellieha Bay Hotel your choice. Take my word if you don't, you won't know what your missing.
Can't wait to return
We stayed at The Mellieha Bay Hotel for one week over New Years. The staff were most helpfull the view from all bedrooms was wonderfull and the food was exceptional, we also enjoyed the entertainment.
This is one of the very few hotels that you can guarantee a sea view without paying a supplement! The rooms are standard but who cares when you can wake up go on the balcony and look out onto the pretty bay with the boats bobbing on the sea. The hotel is clean, food excellent, entertainment very good with a mixture of local and 'international' talent. The two pools, one saltwater are excellently maintained and you can almost guarantee a sunbed! There a two poolside cafe's one alongside each, serving cool drinks and snacks and both pools have views onto the sea. There are excellent sporting facilities at this hotel which is set in its own beautiful grounds with plenty of places to walk your meal off in the evenings before the entertainment starts.
Never stayed anywhere so welcoming!
We stayed at the hotel from 06.01.04 to 13.01.04 and first impressions were disappointing with the rooms being very basic. However, all changed the next day! The food was fantastc, the staff were excellent (we don't believe in tipping - but we tipped the staff there) the hotel is so clean and the staff cannot do enough to help and are always polite with it! Excellent, first class.
The place to stay
As a family we have stayed at the Mellieha many times over the last ten years.What brings us back?The cleanliness, politeness of the staff, and the general atmosphere of a relaxed environment.The Limelight lounge was tastefully refurbished a couple of years ago. The nightly entertainment is mixed so it covers all tastes.my only gripe is that the Lobby cafe closes too early and you are denied the late night snack and/or drink away from the bar.
