“Truly idyllic!”
Reviewed 12 February 2014

I absolutely *adored* this hotel- the staff were always cheerful and polite, especially in the 'Rickshaw' restaurant (accessible from the lobby), and at 'Pizza, Pasta & Co.' (by the pool). The food in both restaurants is fantastic, though our personal favourite was Rickshaw- who knew such delicious Oriental cuisine could be found on the island? We also loved the indoor pool- it was open till late, and often we had it all to ourselves! It's beautiful in the spa! The location is also great, as you needn't bother with a taxi- there's a bus stop less than five minutes walk from the hotel, and the service is regular and always reliable. The room was always clean, and we always got a good night's sleep! Admittedly, the hotel is fairly far from any kind of beach- but that didn't bother us. A beautiful hotel, and a wonderful experience!

In response to the previous reviewer,i like numerous on here, HAVE clearly experienced 5 star hotel stays in numerous places.Do you think so highly of yourself that no one else has?.Some people clearly look for faults as many people know,and to complain about the cars brake pad warning light on is as petty as I have ever heard,maybe it had just come on and they did not want to be late for you?I agree in Malta the star system does not always reflect the hotel,and yes some hotels I have been in are better in some respects,but by god I have paid for this, and to me I have not always had value for money,that CANNOT be said of this hotel.I and other family members have regulary sought out a good deal,and believe me I know what a good deal is.Never before, and since we started coming here have I met a better quality of staff,from all professions,very caring and genuine in all matters,if ever we have had an issue,and I can only think of a couple in nearly 14 years of visiting,it was attended to and sorted immediately Yes some of the facilities need a little work but why would that put you off?what hotel doesn't?The place has a touch of old charm the opposite of a lot of other hotels in Malta,The rooms are big and more than comfortable beds compliment this,even the corridors are spacious with hardly any noise at night.I won't go on and on but suffice to say I have only touched on some of the good points,it has too many to state,but overall in my opinion there is NO better place in Malta for value for money and a feeling of warmth when you enter,looking forward once again to going back in April...

I somehow do not wish to put this hotel down, but have to question some of the good reviews that some people have made who seem to go there every year, they have clearly not experienced real 5 star, such as the Datai in Langkawi.

We stayed last September and events although not totally down to the hotel left my wife wanting to leave or not spend the rest of our holiday at the hotel.

The first warning sign was that the hotel car had warning lights saying its brakes needed changing when we got picked up at the airport.

We had
• drinks orders at the pool not turning up,
• reservations for dinner not recorded,
• main courses in the pizza restaurant, turning up before the starters.
• The Villa restaurant served up what was a dry meal.

All this in the first 3 day of our holiday.

We did one trip to pizza restaurant as non-hotel guests and got better service sitting with the locals, even spotted other guest questioning slow service while sitting alongside the pool.

We tried all the facilities except for spa treatments. The steam rooms etc are in serious need of repair, including the indoor pool.

We could not fault the staff in the Caprice lounge, very attentive. Breakfast was similar, but the service in restaurant is not 5 star and the food is not that special either, although the sword fish spaghetti was great, but looks like it’s not on the menu anymore .

We paid for a room up lift with free mini bar, not really worth the extra money. (£1050, for 7 night, at 50% discount, would have cried if paid full price)

Give the hotel its due it reimburse us food and drink due to the issue (not all listed above) … but the room upgrade easily covered this.

Think I’ve said enough … 5 star just means has facilities…. the standard is not part of the star system.. if it was this hotel would not be 5 star.

The sister hotel is also in a rougher part of the island near to the gentlemens clubs … so be careful when taking the hotel transfer to find a nice restaurant.

Not sure Malta is the place to go for a romantic holiday.

Room Tip: Don't upgrade to free mini bar not worth it. We had room away from lifts, top floor away from e...

As a regular visitor to Malta since 1987 and regular guest at the Corinthia Palace, I again returned for a wonderful 2 week break over Christmas and New Year 2013/14. As usual, everything and everyone not only met, but exceeded my expectations. The staff are caring and provide an efficient, but friendly, professional service - I am always addressed by name by all members of staff, which is unique in this day and age. The beds are the most comfortable I have ever slept in. There is a wide choice for breakfast which really sets you up for the day ahead. The location of the hotel is ideal - it is a quiet, peaceful residential area and the San Anton Gardens provide a peaceful sanctuary and are just across the road from the hotel. As soon as you arrive in the Hotel Reception, you are given a warm, friendly welcome by one of the concierges - Martin, Emanuel, Anthony or Matthew and made to feel "special". The Corinthia Palace Hotel offers a service which other hotels can only aspire to. Friends who I have recommended stay at the Corinthia Palace have all enjoyed their stays and have all made return visits. I look forward to my next visit - and returning "home".

Room Tip: Single rooms are the same as double or twin rooms, so as a single traveller you don't feel you a...

After 33 years absence from Malta we were pleased to see that the Maltese are still very friendly and still have affection for us Brits.

We stumbled upon this hotel by chance as a result of a good deal but did not regret one minute. The staff without exception were fantastic. Friendly,helpful amenable and professional. The in house Rickshaws restaurant is a must if you like oriental food. Unfortunately the breakfast,Orangery and main restaurant menus are very restricted but what they do they do well. If you want spoiling or looking after properly this is for you.
THANK YOU CORINTHIA PALACE we loved our week with you and look forward to coming again next year for another week of total relaxation.

Room Tip: Our suite was ground floor but next time we shall specify upper floors only.

We stayed at the Corinthia Palace hotel for five days over New Year. The quiet position of the hotel suited us well and the hotel transport into Valetta worked very efficiently and meant we didn't have the trouble of parking. All the staff were always polite, smiling and very helpful. The concierges (all three that we encountered) were most helpful with local advice. The island is small and the hotel's position made access to all the main sites very easy to navigate.
We ate once at the main restaurant and enjoyed an excellent meal with very good service at a price which didn't seem expensive. The bar was very pleasant and relaxing with a very good value 'Happy Hour'.
The room was large and comfortable. The only negative remark would be the shower in the bathroom which had no thermostat and so meant dodging back and forth to avoid being scolded or frozen! The WiFi worked very well and was free.
If you are wanting a modern, state of the art hotel with a lively and noisy night scene this is not for you. If you are looking for a well run and peaceful hotel of character where you really feel relaxed and looked after - this is it.
Certainly one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in and an understanding of service second to none.
