5 days in Malta and best thing was fantastic weather. It is extremely good value for money if you are looking for a short break and the sunshine. And of course, English is spoken everywhere, so it makes for an easy holiday. However, food for us left a lot to be desired, as it was all very samey. What surprised me most, having been there before (many years ago!), was the extent to which it was built up. There just seemed no quite place to get some solitude. It was not the height of the season and yet, everywhere was so busy. The island was full of roadworks which meant it took ages to get anywhere, despite the fact it is a small island. We did take the ferry to Gozo, which is very cheap, and although we were only there for a day, we really enjoyed it. Definitely, prettier than Malta, and buildings in much better repair, and more upmarket. Would consider staying there, but no wish to return to Malta.

    The great thing about reviews is that it's quite acceptable to have differing opinions as to what we, as travellers expect and experience. I visited Malta in November 2013 and loved it. Whilst I acknowledge what you say about being built up and agree with you about badly missing green spaces and nature, I was prepared for this. If you go knowing this and spend time exploring the rich culture and history it's a fascinating place well worth a visit. We found many very quiet, peaceful places in the beautiful old city of Mdina to just stop and reflect. Other little places as well. Maybe it depends which part of the island you stay. We were just outside St Juliens, think it was st George's bay which was very tranquil.
