Me and my partner have chosen this apartment for our 6-night stay in Malta after spending 4 days in Gozo. Although we were late to arrive, Frances gave us a warm welcome and we instantly felt like at home! I have had high expectations for this apartment but it has even managed to surpass them! It is cosy, immaculately clean, modern, beautifully furnished and finished, with all possible amenities, fantastic views and perfect location. We actually renamed it to Blue Horizon and Perfect Sunsets Apartment, as we were treated with some of the most beautiful sunsets during our stay! With a glass of wine in hand, it made our hearts melt to sit and watch it on the balcony.
As mentioned by many before, there are plenty of restaurants and bars to choose from literally at the doorstep, either you are happy with cheap touristic option or looking for something more special and upper-end. We tried both. Here are some local restaurant tips:
1. Bognor - 2mins walk from flat, sits just on the waterfront, so beautiful views. Touristic option, but we actually really enjoyed the food and the prices definitely didn't bite.
2. Malet - also about 2-3mins walk, Frances recommended it, and we were happy to have gone for it. Higher end, local cuisine, slightly more pricey but definitely worth it! Bear in mind it's likely to be quiet as it's away from the sea and no views.
3. Tarragon - about 7mins walk towards St Paul Bay - probably highest end restaurant around, with superb views and really astonishing menu! Would not recommend going without minimum £100 to spend, so more suited for special occassions I suppose.
4. Da Rosi - just seconds away from Tarragon, absolutely wonderful food and the best service we had! Prices are very fair too.
Apart from food, it is also perfect place to visit the rest of the island from! We loved Maltese Riviera, Mdina, and we used night bus to come back from Valletta around 1am, it has literally dropped us off next to flat (Anthony bus stop) - perfect!
All in all, it's not enough words to describe our Maltese experience, and Blue Horizon Apartment has really made it even more special! Thank you very much for your warmth and hospitality, Frances, and we are really hoping to be back again!
Just spent ten days at blue horizon apartments, Frances was there to meet us and showing us around , leaving us some essentials including lovely bottle of wine.
The apartment is perfect , with everything you need , views of sea are beautiful.
Buses close by and so easy to use , close to shops and bars and restaurants.
Would highly recommend you stay here we will defiantly go back.
Thank you Frances
Really good location for Bugibba.
The photos do not do this apartment justice, it's much lighter than it appears.
You can watch the world go by on the balcony and then get a really quiet nights sleep in the bedroom which is in the back.
Nice modern bathroom and very clean throughout.
It has all the amenities you would need but Frances our host added lots of little extras which was so nice.
You could not be disappointed if you booked this apartment, we would thoroughly recommend it.
Thank you Frances

Despite being delayed by eight hours and awful weather Frances the hostess with the mostest was there smiling to greet me as l got out of the taxi.The appt was just as lovely as the photos and very clean and welcoming. Frances had even supplied me with some essentiasl tea,coffee, milk , wine, cake etc which l was very glad of. Very comfy bed and when l awoke the next morning and looked out of the lounge window the veiw was amazing and l never tired of it. The appt is well equpped with everything you could need and a full size fridge freezer ,and decent cooker and plenty of towels. There is a washing machine and drying lines on the back balcony. The weather was not good so l wasn't able to sit on the front balcony but watched sunrise and sunset most days. Have booked again as it is certainly good value for money . Handy for local shops, cafes ,buses and boat trips in season. Frances is just at the other end of the phone if needed. Can't wait to go back there in May
Our third visit to Malta and we chose a great location. Lovely sea views from the apartment (no. 2) which is modern and well equipped, clean and bright. The bedroom was a good size with a very comfortable bed and air conditioning, which for our January visit kept the room a comfortable warm temperature. The place felt more like home than a rental. Francis was very welcoming and available if we needed her, She even arranged our airport transfers. The weather was unusually cold, so heating was provided for us in the main room too. Lots of shops and restaurants just a short walk. I would say it is unsuitable for people with walking difficulties as although there is a lift to all floors,several steps lead to the lift. I would definitely recommend and would stay there again.
