The best thing about the Fortina is the view of Valetta. After that I'm afraid it's all downhill. The rooms facing Valetta are dreary green and brown with iffy plumbing, particularly the WC. The 'dine around' option is much advertised but the hotel goes out of its way to stop half-board clients from using it. All the advertised restaurants are 'fully booked' days in advance. When you walk past them they are a sea of empty tables. Not amused. The Spa pool is overheated, dripping with condensation and we are pretty sure my wife picked up an infection there. The hotel overcharges for bottled water, 4 euros, when the restaurants in Valetta charge 2.30. The bar next to the outdoor pool serves its drinks in plastic glasses! 4 star? Not a chance. There is Wi-Fi in some public areas but nowhere else - not in the rooms. There is a busy road outside with constant traffic. Good points? The garden in the central atrium is attractive and child-free, or is supposed to be. The food in the Terrace restaurant over the road but attached to the hotel is good. The main restaurant is typical dull package holiday fare. Go back? Not a chance.
