malta visit

Jump to last reply

firstly many thanks to poster who advised pre-booking hypogeum and gave site details to do this. we arrived at hypogeum at booked time and a very courteous Joseph looked after us. as only 10 people are allowed in at a time everybody who hadn't booked was being turned away or asked to book 7/10 days in advance - not so bright if you are only in malta for short trip. It is well worth doing hypogeum as it was absolutely amazing.

we didn't much like rest of malta. we stayed at intercon which was good. to the back of the hotel are all the nightclubs of paceville but we heard no noise and in fact it was about the most exciting part of malta with the vibrancy of the partying youths.
we also had a couple of days on gozo which was better than malta, quieter and slightly greener. we stayed at san lawrenz kempinski which was lovely but completely on its own which meant we had to dine in the hotel each night which pushed price up and food and service in restaurant were disaster.
Did the captain morgan boat trip around malta which took us to blue lagoon we both hated it. I think there must have been nearly 500 people disembark from various boats to fight with the wasps for a towel size piece of rock, absolutely horrendous especially as we were left there for over two hours. blue lagoon is very pretty but if you do this don't go on large chartered boat you will hate it.
hope this helps anybody planning to visit malta.
