This hotel was a replacement which I chose due to seeing the reviews of original hotel we were booked in at Bugibba. So glad I did,
Hotel was right on Sea Front and although we had a side sea view from the balcony it was fine as we were not in the room much to look at view. We were also not too far back from the front of the hotel.
We were just on B&B package as we prefer to just eat out when we want. Breakfast was good although couple of mornings sausages were getting a bit cold by the time we got there but plenty of choice.
Hotel room was clean and serviced every day with tea / coffee facilities in room and a fridge for your water or juice etc.
This hotel is on the other side of Sliema from the ferries to Valetta but buses are regular if you do not want to walk along the waterfront which is a good 20 mins. Tip instead of bus to Valetta go to Sliema ferries and grab a water taxi 1.5 euro each for 5 min ride to Valetta instead of 40 min bus ride. Although water taxi means it is all uphill walk in Valetta but very pleasant.
Plenty of bars / restaurants nearby and lovely walk along the waterfront all the way to St Julyans as well.
The beach at Sliema is not sandy but rocks where everyone sunbathes with steps or slope walkways into water every so far along the way. The Diplomat has a rooftop pool which we used a couple of days with sunbeds free of charge.
Hop on hop off tour buses are regular with prices 12 or 15 euros one for north of Island, 1 for South but we hired a car for a day and found great beach Gjejna Bay nice and sandy.
All in all great holiday, nice hotel and lovely island. Would definitely go back
