Hotel Topaz, Bugibba, pool-area.
I've never seen such narrow corridors as in this hotel.

Malta 1996, Hotel Topaz,Bugibba

I stayed in hotel Topaz in Bugibba. It had two (2) swimmingpools and one childrens' pool, a snackbar and a small supermarket with very limited opening hours. it also had a regular hotel-restaurant, which I used the first morning as I had no functioning fridge and cooker, and could not buy things for breakfast because of that. The hotel is an apartment hotel. The food in the snackbar tastes absolutely nothing. The airconditioning in my flat broke the 2nd day, dripping water all over the place, but it was fixed fairly quickly. The electricity for the fridge and airconditioning took till the next day till they turned it on. The hotel had the idea that I did not have the right to apartment-facilities but only hotel-facilities, thus no fridge and no cooker. I told them I had paid for apartment facilities. In the end I got them to turn everything on. The service generally was lousy and most things in the apartment were in not such a good condition. I stayed about 2 floors above the snackbar (yellow sunblinds) somewhere in the middle. From the balcony I saw the surrounding hills.
