Plus points: location on the harbour in Silema, with great views of the Valetta skyline.
Next to bus stops, trip boats and the 2 € ferry to Valetta.
Various room, worth updating to get larger and more modern rooms either with a sea or garden facing rooms.
Food good and plentiful. Large Buffet/ breakfast room under the road beside the pools and water views.
Special " Dine Around the World" system of international restaurants that can be booked as part of the HB.
Several pools, indoor and outside, gym and use of the 5 star spa next door.

Minus points: some bedrooms need refurbishing and are small.
Indoor pool has rusty equipment, mouldy walls and unclean surfaces.
Varied standards of service in the international restaurants and they have to be booked 2 days in advance at reception.
Lack of comfortable sitting areas. Reception area draughty with front door opening, downstairs bar frequent t. v. football.
Need for more evening entertainment, only various musicians thurs to Sunday.
Very good 90 minute harbour cruises are recommended but try to avoid the line of companies along the waterfront at Silema selling their various trips.
Excellent frequent, extensive and cheap local buses but beware of the trip mini buses itch poor suspension of the poorly tarmaced and pot holed roads.
