We were a party of six. My parents,husband, my two teenage children and myself. We arrived at the hotel at 11.00 a.m and were checked in very quickly. Our rooms were not ready untill 2.00 so we put our suitcases in the luggage room by reception and was directed to the outside bar area were we could get a drink while waiting for our lunch. We stayed on an all-inclusive basis, on a dine around option which meant you could eat in any of five restaurants at the hotel. We tried the italian restaurant once, which was great if you liked pizza, but every other mealtime both at lunch and dinner we ate in the valletta restaurant because the food was so nice there. There was plenty of choice with salads, beautiful fish (I never found a bone once) very lean meat beef, lamb, peppered steak, pork loins mexican fajitas, a choice of potatoes, rice, vegetables the desserts were great lemon meringue, chocalate cake fruit tarts, fruit crumble cheesecakes ice cream, gateaux, and jelly .my parents room had a great view over to valletta and harbour my room was facing the garden which was still nice. The hotel is in a great location for those wanting to explore malta with the ferry and bus stops a short walk away. The hotel itself is very clean with helpful staff the only thing that lets this hotel down is the lack of enterainment. it is non-existent. everynight it was just music being played from a lap top. One night there was a duo singing and that was it. There was nothing for my teenage children at all. The alcoholic drinks were all mostly branded real bailys, jack daniels whisky, morgans rum, stella lager and lowenbrau. there was a great choice of cocktails and your usual choice of soft drinks tea coffee and hot chocolates all on the all inclusive. The snacks of a day were not included these had to be bought but the food in the valletta buffet restaurant was that good you never missed them. We used the bus service a lot. 2.euros 60 cent took you all round the island all day . The local buses have now been taken over by arriva and we had no problems at all finding our way around. Dont go to the sunday market in floriana its rubbish there is not much there. My dad and husband went to a lot of museums on the island and really enjoyed them. We had a great holiday and would return to malta the local people are really friendly but we were disapointed about the lack of entertainment at the hotel which was a real shame because everything else about the fortina was great.
