Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Extremely welcoming and friendly staff. Love how they restored this beautiful hotel. What a gorgeous place! Amazing food and wine selection. Plus city center and restaurants all walking distance… The bar and patio is the best in Malta. Definitely THE place to stay!

Hotel's Favourite
From our first to last moment at this hotel, every single staff member met us with extreme competence and brilliant smiles. Where else could we feel so at home? As we said to the general manager, money can build beautiful buildings anywhere, but the people working there are what makes the difference. Our room was excellent and well maintained. A walk through the beautiful gardens took us to an infinity pool. Staff quickly found appropriate seatings and arranged towels and umbrellas for each guest. Bar service to the pool was frequent and precise. One could also choose to eat at the pool restaurant which offers the same menu - food choices were innovative and well suited to the hot days of July. Our favourite friendly server was Romen who served with a smile and friendly anecdotes. He made us feel valued. At breakfast, in the dining room, the hostess, Alina, was a friendly and accommodating start to our meal. The breakfast area was usually supervised by Sandra whom we called the Duchess because of her elegance and suave service. Rose was our daily server for coffee and juice and is the most delightful young lady. Bina was also a server who made us feel at home. Food service included absolutely amazing baked goods along with the traditional breakfast fare (and fantastic fresh squeezed orange juice). The breakfast chef, Domenic Zammit, supervised with great attention to details. His skills are clearly superior. Breakfast here was always an anticipated wonderful start to our day. The lounge is a well appointed, pretty meeting spot with excellent bar service, thank you Ivan. One could not enter or leave the hotel without the doormen/porters hurrying to open doors and give a friendly greeting. A German intern and an American boy were exceptional in their roles. During our stay, the hotel offered a complimentary jazz evening in the garden which was a terrific surprise and a wonderful evening. This hotel is a stately building with a prime location. However, the staff is what raises this place to the next level. From the general manager to the concierge, the room attendants to the porters, the spa staff to the front desk, everyone seemed to love their jobs and connecting with the guests. After our seven planned nights, we simply were not ready to leave and this is thanks to how much the wonderful staff of the Phoenicia made us feel at home.

Overall, a fantastic stay at the hotel, it's a repeat visit for us - we love the hotel and the location - perfect for exploring Valetta. Great facilties, both spa and pool are lovely (this was off season again, so we are yet to experience the outdoor pool!) The club bar does great drinks, at a reasoanble price. Beds super comfy.

It’s been our first visit to Malta and being the lovers of ‘afternoon teas’ we decided to visit this highly recommended hotel and we were not to be disappointed! From the moment Kim and I were met at reception by a very helpful young man (apologies for not getting his name but he was a credit to the hotel) and shown to the Palm Court Lounge we were treated to a wonderful experience 👍 Our host ‘Luka’ explained everything to us and once our choice was made, ‘classic afternoon tea’ of course, we wanted for nothing! His explanation of the teas was so informative and our choice of Earl Grey, well that’s our favourite was of the highest quality 👍 The food was delicious and so tasty and the scones freshly made that pleased us both 😀 Kim had a lovely glass of Prosecco and they even had a ‘Nosecco’ for me 😀 All in all a fantastic experience that set us up for our evening at the Teatre Manoel and we cannot recommend the ‘afternoon tea experience’ enough, simply amazing and Kim and I look forward to another visit in the future 👍😀👏

Warm welcome. Great comfortable room with fantastic views. Everything you could need was provided. Excellent housekeeping, lovely quality sheets, towels etc. Loved the complementary water everyday. Delicious breakfast with a wide selection of quality foods. We loved the buffet and the freshly made coffee. All the breakfast staff were so friendly and helpful and we loved the new conservatory. Lovely walk in the extensive gardens after breakfast. The hotel has the perfect location for visiting Valletta and Malta. It is close to the main entrance of Valletta, the wonderful Triton fountain and the bus station for exploring Malta.

From the moment we stepped out of the vehicle, we were greeted with some of the friendliest staff I’ve ever experienced. We stayed here for one night to celebrate our 10th Anniversary, and everyone at the hotel went out of their way to make it a special stay for us. The room was impeccable and they even put out a cat bed and bowls for our cat. House keeping was lovely and obviously takes pride in their work. We are dinner at Contessa, which has the best service I’ve experienced on the island. The food was incredible and it’s obvious they take care to ensure an incredible dining experience; truly 5-star! Afterwards, we had a drink at The Club Bar and the bartender was amazing! He was friendly and made exquisite drinks. The breakfast at Contessa was also lovely, with the same amazing service. This will be our go-to hotel/restaurant for special celebrations. Thank you again, to the staff at The Phoenicia.

A luxurious hotel located just outside the Valletta city gates and well-placed for exploring Valletta and Floriana on foot or reaching the other attractions of the islands by bus, taxi, or ferry. The rooms are comfortable and spacious. The hotel has several dining options - the Palm Court Lounge is an excellent venue for afternoon tea or an evening drink after a day's sightseeing - and a spa and indoor and outdoor pools. The staff are friendly and helpful, and the overall service is excellent. This 5-star hotel is expensive but well worth it for a special break in Malta.
