Made it to Malta!
It was not easy mind you...
The first leg to Paris was not bad but Charles De Galle was a zoo! Then of course the Air Malta flight was delayed about an hour...meaning we missed our bus connection in Valletta. We finally made it to Mellieha late in the day.
Having arrived at "Villa Desiderata" in Mellieha, we are now ready to ...
Since my friend had to fly out Friday evening, we spent the better part of the day wandering around Mellieha, drinking coffee, looking at the sea and hanging out. The next day was my only full day alone in Malta, so I decided to cram as much into as possible.
Of course, nothing ever goes to plan.
I got up fairly early and took the ferry over to Gozo, expecting to be able to catch a connecting ferry to Comino. I had been under the impression ...
... I wanted to see because I ended up cold, wet and hungry (the thing was older than the pyramids of Giza, so although it’s a shame I missed it, I’m pretty sure it’ll still be around in a few years). We had a quick stop at a local food place and sampled some of the local chutneys and spreads, and then carried on for a quick stop overlooking Ramla Bay. I’m sure it’s gorgeous in the summer, as the water is a lovely aqua colour ...
... what it's all about, but it seems like the stray (?) cat population is suitably cared for at various feeding stations around town, one of which comes complete with three dog houses for the finicky felines. We passed olive trees and looked out at the brilliant azure of the Mediterranean, and then wandered through town some more. We stopped to check out the Carnival parade, and then kept going, shooing off horse-drawn carriage drivers who tried ...
The doorbell rang at 7.30am. It was a big parcel from Australia! How exciting! Mum had sent me lots of goodies for the Australia Day party I'll be hosting. It was so nice to receive a card from my thoughtful parents. Ippy said she thinks it should be illegal to deliver the post before noon though.
Later that morning Debbie brought over a white sheet and Nicole and Lars brought a box of paint. We intend on creating a homemade large-scale Twister ...

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!
