8Villa is a nice place to stay for its price. Simona was a gracious host who felt like our Italian mother taking care of us.
Room:othe room we stayed in was the 1single 1 double bedroom. The room was spacious enough for 3 girls to stay in.
Location wise: The place is very close to Paceville’s night life but still quiet enough to be able to get a good night sleep. It is also very close to bus stops that can take you all over Malta and a taxi stand for when you want to get to your destination faster. A supermarket is also very close for when you want to buy some essential items.
Cleanliness: The place is kept really clean.
Amenities: 8villa has a pool, billards table, free breakfast and wifi. The breakfast was pretty filling. You have a variety of items to choose from such as pastries, toast, cereal, juices, espressos and tea. Simona will even cook you eggs with bacon. The food was simple but delicious.
The biggest thing that occured was a misunderstanding between my friends and the host. We were told that the housekeeper had to clean our room for a long time due to a pink “explosion” on the wall. When my friends and I left the room every morning we made sure to turn off everything and keep things orderly. We were shocked by the accusation because I am pretty sure we would have noticed a big explosion of pink on the wall. It would have been nice to have some sort of proof of the incident instead of being accused. It was also hard to deal with the issue because of the language barrier but in the end the matter was resolved. It just left a negative vibe during our stay.
We were also surprised by a couple of fees upon check in that were not shown on the airbnb page. The host does inform you of a late check in fee once a reservation is confirmed prior to your arrival but we were a little surprised by a VAT we had to pay when we arrived. It would have been nice for all the fees to be included in the booking price.
The room we stayed in was located at the top floor. This made it hard for the wifi to reach us. It was hard for us to upload pics and let family know we were ok. However the wifi is strong and fast downstairs in the common areas.
