  • Key Facts

    • Hotels: 6
    • Approximate Transfer Time: 40 Minutes
    • Located to the east of Bugibba and Qawra
    • Made famous by the Apostle's shipwreck in the 16th century

    Situated on Malta's North East coast, St Pauls Bay is the largest and most popular holiday resort on the island. With a wide range of hotels this former fishing village has something for anyone from families to singles and travellers of all ages. A St Pauls Bay holiday together with the nearby resorts of Buggiba and Qawra has long been established as a firm favourite with those visiting the Maltese islands.

    Plenty to do in St Pauls Bay

    St Paul's Bay offers excellent bathing from smooth rock platforms and the large range of beach clubs and lidos offer a wide selection of water sports. For those looking for a sandy beach, the largest on the island at Mellieha Bay is only a few kilometres away. A wide selection of restaurants, bars and night spots line the seafront promenade.

    The town of St. Pauls Bay itself is somewhat quieter and the old town still manages to retain an old Maltese charm. Made famous for being the location that the Apostle was shipwrecked, there is a wealth of culture available from the 16th century church to a number of museums. You may however just prefer to breathe in the culture by wandering through the back streets and have a look for yourself.

    St Pauls area was very good with a bus station close to the hotel so I could travel all over the island. There was also a casino next to the hotel which I enjoyed and it wasn't too expensive. I could spend a couple of hours there and only spend 20 euros. The staff again were very friendly.

    Despite paying for sea views and balconies, we were given the wrong rooms upon arrival. This took 24 hours to rectify and wasted our valuable time. There was also conflict with another family when moving rooms as they were given a key before we had moved! Aircon in our room was so noisy it disturbed sleep. A full-on, shouting and screaming row between a guest and member of staff at the poolside was very unprofessional.

    Using Ryan Air was initially a bit off putting and the fact that you had to check-in prior online and print off boarding passes or risk ã80 new 'boarding pass' each way. This meant that once I was in the 7-day window, I booked the outward for free, but also decided to pay the ã10.99 for the return flight, in case I was unable to once in the resort. Perhaps some negotiations with Ryan Air could alleviate this practise in future because not everyone has full Internet access or capability.

    First time to travel with Mercury. In the past we travelled with Saga and began to get fed up treated like 'old children' supervised everywhere and being part of a group of moaners. Will certainly travel next time with Mercury Direct.

    Fantastic holiday rep, Eleanor, very helpful and only too pleased to help with any queries. Great animation team who weren't pushy if you didn't want to join in, but remembered you if you did and you ended up exercising again the next day! It was really great fun and they encouraged people to do classes they'd never tried before. Even though it was very hot the classes were held in the shade.

I assume I should have had a confirmation email as I subsequently received a generic "all you need to know" email which referred to "our previous email ". None of the emails I have received from Mercury were specific to this particular holiday, even the one asking for this review. In order to provide the booking...
