Fortina Spa Resort
Ranked #11 of 28 Hotels in Sliema
Reviewed 22 August 2011

I stayed at the Fortina Spa Resort for a week with my partner and we loved it! The hotel is clean, nicely decorated and it has the most beautiful views of Valletta, the staff are friendly and couldn't do enough for you. We went for the Bed and Breakfast option, breakfast is a mix of continental,cereal and your usual full English, there is also a mix fresh fruit and there was pancakes which they stuffed with fruit and were delicious and then for drinks they have juices, tea, coffee and even Champagne!
The pool area was nice and pretty, no real trouble getting a sunbed, the pool itself is cold but refreshing. The restaurants within the hotel are divine, we went to the Indian, Italian, and the Japanese and we didn't have one bad meal or bad service (I am a vegetarian and I had lots of options at each restaurant) . Rooms were spacious, clean comfortable, nicely decorated and our view across to Valletta was magnificent. Malta is a really stunning country,it has something for everyone. We loved this hotel, we totally chilled out and I would go back in a heartbeat!

I have been going to the Fortina Hotel before the 5* was built and watched the 5* being built( what a great eye opener). There is no way that the people on this site giving bad reviews are staying at the same Fortina Spa Resort as I am. My wife and I have just returned and can assure you that we had a relaxing and enjoyable time. There was a couple of Mistakes in the restaurants, but these were quickly rectified by the staff and duty manager. So people get a life and make sure that you are telling the truth and not making mountains out of molehills. The building works behind the Hotel are at least 500 metres away and have no disruptive affect on the hotel.

unlike some hotels that give themselves a 4 - 5 star rating this one lives up to the stars and the Spa is to die for. The food and accomodation is excellent and the viewa of Valletta are fantastic.

This was our third and last time at the Fortina. We have visited for the past three years and I must say that this time was our last. This Hotel is not a five star any longer, the rooms, pool, bars and decor are a three star standard. We have been so disappointed, after two previous years of great service and a wonderful relaxing time, this year was a total let down. The quality of the food has dropped and it took it between one and a half to to hours to get a meal in the Taste restaurant. In the end we just gave up and left, it's was not the staff as they worked really very hard, the management had cut the chefs from four to two and they just could not cope.the Japanese restaurant only gave you a couple of options unlike last years great menu. The amount of outsiders they allow in to use all the facilities is just crazy, the paying guests could not get a sun bed and they were so rowdy and with loads of children who would not behave. The rear garden area has broken sun shades and is dirty and unkempt.
All in all this Hotel is grubby and the food has gone down hill, not five star in a million years.
All in all it was a total disappointment and we would not return to this

The food, the spa, the rooms, the lovely swimming pool with swim up bar for delicious cocktails... All amazing! I simply love everything about this hotel. Yes, the receptionists are a little off hand but people really do complain about the silliest things so it must be tiring for them!
Charmaine, Tamika and Sandra are simply magnificent members of staff. I particularly like Sandra!

Room Tip: Stunning tower sea view rooms- top notch!

We have just returned from our 1st trip to Fortina Spa Resort and have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to our friends. The girl at reception (I think her name was Elizabeth) was extremely helpful and pleasant. There was a mix up with our room and she upgraded us free of charge and was very apologetic. The room was extremely quiet, I can honestly say the best sleep I have ever had on holidays. The room was kept spotlessly clean. We ate in the Indian and Japanese restaurants and both were excellent. Breakfast was 1st class and could honestly not fault it.

The sun loungers are quite shaded but we just used the Terrace across the road and never had any problems getting a lounger.

We will def return to Malta and Fortina Spa.

Lovely rooms and excellent food. Drinks on all inclusive were a little disappointing but adequate. Lots of restaurants to choose from and buffet was great. Spa facilities were really good. Not too lively in the evening
