I must say I was really impressed by Europa. Rooms were nice and big and staff helpfull and freindly. Its a simple hotel but clean and tidy and in convenient spot. Right on the waterfront nice cafes and kiosks near , bus to Valetta or Airport or other places right there or a little wander not to far behind to the ferry to Valetta. Europa and Silema is an excellent base for trips to explore malta. Great for the traveller who wants to get out and about and have a neat and tidy room to return to. It was low season in Malta but still quite popular so I think the world is out that Europa is well priced nad offers a good simple product.
We had a lovely week at Shamrock. The accomodation is not luxurious (no microwave, electric kettle etc), but was spacious and perfect for our needs - and for the price very good value for money. We had a lovely stay at Shamrock. Antida (the proprietor) was very helpful and friendly.
Shamrock is in Bugibba, with plenty of options for eating out - and a very small beach to swim just down the road. Like most of Malta's beaches, it is stony so take beach shoes with.
I read in other reviews people complaining that their children were not allowed to splash around in the rooftop pool etc. If your children are well behaved and respect the house rules, you will be fine at Shamrock. If your children are wild, either keep them under control or choose a different establishment where noise etc is permitted.
All in all Shamrock represents good value for money basic self-catering accommodation and I would certainly recommend it.

We had a huge room at the top of the house. There was an amazing view. The jacuzzi bath was in the bedroom. There were no mod cons such as a t.v or brand new furniture but there was something relaxing and different about the residence. We had the nice outdoor pool to ourselves all day and loved the hotels restaurant that was nearby. We had two great meals there. Take some time to walk down to the main village and see the church and maybe have a cheap drink with the locals in the band club or the football club. There are communal fridges to keep your drinks cool and a nice local shop to buy them in at very cheap prices. We cant wait to go back.
