My wife and I recently enjoyed the offer of two week half board and a third week B and B at this efficiently run, pleasant hotel.
Our room was rather small, but with a balcony offering a stunning vista of Valetta across the water. Some of the rooms were larger, with easy chairs. Whether one was lucky enough to be given what I believe the brochure described as, "a superior sea view room" seemed to be a bit of a lottery. Supply clearly exceeded demand and caused some frustration among guests.
Our room overlooked a busy seafront road but the noise was not at all excessive and all could be forgiven for that view!
In common with most other reviewers we found the food very good. The "dine around" option of various restaurants, including Thai/Chinese, Indian, and Italian was fun and the table de hote menu at these separate restaurants was included in the hotel price. However, the main "Valetta" buffet restaurant offered a great choice of well prepared and varied food.
We were offered the chance to pay for evening meals on the third "B and B" week. We took advantage of this and many guests we spoke to had done the same, so that was an endorsement of the excellence of the food.
The WiFi connection was restriced to the reception and lounge areas. This is a pain but unfortunately typical of many hotels. A good wiFi connection in all the rooms should be possible in this day and age.
My wife made use of the Spa facilities and even I was trempted into the warm indoor swimming pool every day.
A free 1.5 hour trip around the picturesque and historic Grand Harbour of Valetta is included.
This was not our first visit to Malta and so we knew all about the friendliness and hospitality of the Maltese. This, of course, included the staff at the Fortina.
There is so much to see and do in the amazing island of Malta and we recommend both the hotel and Malta.
