Porto Azzurro

TripAdvisor Review
Malta and Gozo, Europe
St Pauls Bay

Bright, modern, spacious and inviting – these are just a few words to sum up some of the charms of the Porto Azzurro Aparthotel. Exceptional fully catered and self-catering options both come with all the facilities of the three star Porto Azzurro Aparthotel. The setting in Xemxija is spectacular too. Surrounded by countryside and with views overlooking St Paul's Bay, it is picture-perfect. St Paul's Bay is one of the island's largest seaside resorts, and the rugged coastline opens out onto some stunning sea views. From down on the bay you can even see out to St Paul's Island.

Have the relaxing Malta holiday you dreamt of at the Porto Azzurro Aparthotel:

Whether you're here for the history – this was one of Malta's foremost military outposts in the seventeenth century – or the views; the sun or the snorkelling; the Porto Azzurro Aparthotel is the perfect place to be.

Overlooking St Paul's Bay, the Porto Azzurro Aparthotel lets you lead the kind of holiday you want. You can go for either the fully catered or self-catering options.

Stay in absolute comfort in the Porto Azzurro Aparthotel and you'll be very well looked after. With a superb range of facilities including a free-form swimming pool and sun terrace, as well as an indoor pool, fitness room and massage available at a fee, your relaxation is given top priority.

That same dedication to your comfort is reflected in your room. Each twin-bed, en-suite room is air conditioned and features TV, radio and phone. A safe deposit box is available. You'll also have your own private balcony – a must-have for any holiday destination where the views are this good!

Alternatively stay on self-catering and you'll feel right at home inside your comfortable, wonderfully appointed apartment. And of course, you'll have unrestricted access to all the hotel's amenities too. It's the best of worlds: all the amenities and all the freedom too. Eat in, eat out, eat on the go, you set the pace for the holiday you want.

The Porto Azzurro Aparthotel has its own restaurant, two bars, and a 24 hour minimarket, which is handy for stocking up on essentials. Each one or two bedroom apartment comes with a fully-equipped kitchen, complete with microwave oven, fridge and hob.

With easy access to other parts of the island via the convenient bus connections– and even more incredible sandy beaches – St Paul's Bay really is an ideal location. And staying at the Porto Azzurro Aparthotel gives you plenty of options: explore as close to home, or as far afield as you like. Go fully catered or self-catering, it's all up to you…

A wonderful experience, consistently since 2014 👍🏼

Review by Y4510LVpatriciam Portsmouth, United Kingdom

🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟Highly recommended 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

We have been visiting Porto Azzurro since 2014, and it never disappoints.

Value for money, excellent service from the staff, in particular, Alexis Meylaq, who has been so friendly and efficient.

Indoor pool for cooler days. Jacuzzi too...

A great outdoor pool for hot summer days, with a view of the bay. Amenities are nearby, and the public transport routes are accessible to the Gozo ferry, Valletta, Bugibba, etc

A quieter location for those whom prefer a quiet holiday, we always book an apartment and they're well equipped with AC, kitchenette, modern furnishings and they are spotless

Best view! cosy penthouse!

This was our 4th time at the Porto Azzurro Hotel, but never been in the beutifully finished penthouse. We booked directly through the hotel with the help of Alexis Meylaq who was very helpful and replied immediately to my emails. The penthouse has best views, and is modernly finished with a perfectly cosy fully operational AC...

Nice shower and a well sizes jacuzzi bath. Perfect for a couple relaxing break. Would definitely go back!!

Didn’t use restaurant or other facilities on this trip.

Wonderful Stay!!

This was our first visit to Malta and our son's first trip abroad, honestly couldn't have been any better!

Firstly the location is simply stunning, with sea view rooms available, there is a Heritage Trail walk directly behind the hotel, and the road leads straight down to the bus stop. with a café/ restaurant and convenience store next to it.

The staff on reception are just simply lovely! Always on hand to give advice on how to get about and where to visit, and thoroughly spoiled our son with attention. So much so that upon departure or son decided to take some pictures of Jan whom he especially liked.

We were a bit chilly on the first night with it being winter, so asked for extra bedding - not a problem.

The maids did a fabulous job changing the bedding and cleaning on a daily basis.

We had the standard room, which was very spacious with kitchen and even came with a patio, All very clean, and comfortable...

We unfortunately had a problem with a guest in the neighbouring room on the second to last night - no fault to the hotel - when we mentioned it to reception, she very thoughtfully upgraded us for the final night to a one bed apartment with a large balcony and sea views.

The indoor swimming pool was fabulous for us to use each day, this hugely boosted our son's confidence in the water.

The outdoor pool and snack bar was closed for the winter but looks very inviting.

We are already planning our return trip to Porto Azzurro, and certainly recommend to others.
