The resort of Marfa is very quiet and you can enjoy a quiet break with no noise at night and enjoy a good nights sleep. The area outside and around the hotel was sometimes messy with the Maltese people and fishermen leaving quite a lot of mess around the coastline in parking areas and on the jetty after the fishermen and ladies have gone home.
There was no entertainment to speak of outside the hotel but the newly extended hotel(probably now open)at Armier Bay might provide extra entertainment.We stayed at the Riviera Hotel from 5/3/05 room 320 for 28 nights and would without doubt go again.
Would love to see all the staff who were marvelous and go for long ...
walks in the beautiful countryside again and to meet all the very friendly Maltese people we were lucky to have met on our holiday.Read More
The coastline does have a few secluded beaches but mostly rocky unless you go to Comino(ferry outside hotel)or the amazing island of Gozo. The beach on Comino is small but a swim in the Blue Lagoon and exploring the caves is a great day out and the short boat trip is a worthwhile trip.We can not wait to go back to Malta again, everyone is so friendly and nearly everybody speaks English.
The area of Marfa is not a nightlife place for teenagers but excellent nightlife a bus ride away and a taxi ride back in the early hours after a visit to the clubs in St.Pauls Bay or nearby.
The good thing about Malta is that most places are easy to get to with enormous emounts of history to see and visit and the buses are an experience which could be compared with Disneyland rides but not to be missed.When using the buses try and avoid the express ones (as they are so called) because the fares are double that of the ordinary buses and they are not any quicker.
Anyway whats the big rush you have got all day. If you stay at the Riviera I am sure you will enjoy your holiday and the service all the staff give to all the guests and enjoy all that marvelous food prepared by the first class chefs.
