... Evening drinks and relaxing by the water, cheap wine yadayadayada, all the good stuff :)
Since I am now writing this over a week after returning from my trip I will just cut to the good stuff. For the final day in Malta we decided to rent a car so we could maximize our time around the island, what was the best way to do this? Well, find a rental company based on recommendation. When we told our dive instructor we were on a budget and that we ...
... in raising expectations. Think of it this way: most everyone I know thinks highly of Southwest Airlines. Why is that? You can’t get a reserved seat or a meal on Southwest. But, you do get a reasonably priced ticket and an on-time flight and fun loving employees and they don’t nickel and dime you for baggage or change fees. Your expectations are kept low (peanuts) but their delivery is high. On United, the promised friendly skies aren’t friendly ...
... we are Ray and I opted to scramble down to the lowest rock and slip in there. The Mediterranean ocean is a magnificent blue, and the ocean, although very deep, was beautiful to swim around in and cooled us down. That evening we dined at a Restaurant that was previously a Battery. It even had a water moat around it. It was called Ferretti Battery. We enjoyed a lovely meal.
The next day we were up early and off to the North part of Malta to catch a Ferry to Comino, an Island ...
Mum woke me around 4am with the news that we were getting underway, and we both stayed up for about half an hour as Columba ponderously drew away from the dock and headed out into the blackness of the Med.
I woke again about 7.30 and went down for breakfast – a beautifully laid table, to which I did absolutely no justice with my two bits of toast and jam. Mum & I have decided to tell Russell ...
Today, my Uncles Charlie and Jimmy, Mel and I headed for Malta's sister island Gozo for the day. We just missed the ferry and had to wait 20 minutes for the next one. As we waited we could see a beautiful blue pattern in the water next to the coast. It doesn't matter how many times I see this crystal blue water it always amazes me.
It didn't take long to get to Gozo and once we were ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Pergola Club Hotel & Spa Mellieha
Abbiamo avuto la sfortuna di alloggiare all'Hotel Pergola. La prima camera che ci hanno assegnato era in pessime condizioni. Ci siamo lamentati con il responsabile di turno e il giorno dopo ci hanno proposto un'altra camera. Quest'ultima non veniva pulita ogni giorno, ma ci fornivano quasi sempre asciugamani puliti. Siamo rimasti davvero sorpresi dal vederci chiedere di pagare gli "extra": le dotazioni per preparare il caffè in camera, un telecomando e una vecchia cassaforte. Abbiamo dovuto tenere le finestre aperte perché gli scarichi del bagno emettevano pessimi odori.
Good hotel for the money. Depending on where you look, they are listed as a 3 ½ or 4 star hotel. I'd give them a solid 3 stars. We chose this hotel over others in the area because they have an indoor heated pool.
After much searching on the Internet myself and a friend decided we liked the look of THE SOLANA HOTEL in Mellieha MALTA. The hotel was shown with a busy bar and cafe area, two years old and looked just what we wanted. We booked a twin room and turned up a few days later.
The term "value for money" explains it all really.
I am Maltese. In December i decided to take my family for a relaxing weekend break at the Pergola Hotel in the lovely village of Mellieha. I had seen the advert on the local paper and the attractive rate made me choose it.
This holiday was the worst ever. I have reduced the list of problems as there were so many. My advice is if you go to the Pergola, make sure you get a good room above the large pool side bar facing the village or looking over over the small pool and also not next to a ventilation shaft.
After recently staying at the Solana Hotel, I again visited Malta and opted for the Pergola Club Hotel which is another 4 star Hotel owned by the same company as the Solana.
Well, where to start? Lovely location in a charming small town in Malta.and the staff are helpful in a reserved Maltese way. However ... the room I was in is dreadful (no 20 along with a couple of others I saw) and the food dreary to the point of boredom from day one. Stodgy, same (despite the themed titles each night), unimaginative and sometimes wierd (eg Chicken Ceasar Salad with cucumber, tomatoes, green peppers, no parmesan and mayonnaise for the dressing). Pizzas were inedible due to the thick cardboard crust and the salads were miserable, tasteless and predictable each day. Insipid breakfast and large bowls of cereals out everyday despite hardly anyone being there and stale cereal. Cakes at dinner came out night after night too..
My sister & I stayed at The Pergola Club Hotel from the 7thOct 2006 for 1 week with a walking group from HF holidays & were dissappointed with the allocation of our rooms. For a start we did not have adjoining rooms in spite of our 'group leader' phoning ahead to request this & my room was far superior to my sisters which seemed unfair when we had paid the same rate for the holiday. The food was absolutely disgusting the worst I have ever experienced during the many places I have visited over the years. There were plaques on the walls for awards that the hotel had received in previous years - what a pity we hadn't visited during that time is all I can say. We definately won't be going back!
