After being dropped off at the wrong hotel, not the fault of the hotel obviously, but as it is adjacent to the 4* Hotel Fortina make sure the taxi driver knows which one you want, we were given an absolutely HUGE room with a great view across the harbour to Valletta and the biggest bed I have ever slept on. The buffet breakfast was very nice with plenty of variety but could have been a little hotter as it tended to get on the cold side before you had finished and I'm not a particularly slow eater. The hotel is situated a short walk from the Valletta ferry and the centre of Sliema and is also right next door to the brand new Tigne point shopping mall which we found very useful. A slightly negative point is that this hotel is advertised as being child free but there were several there during our stay luckily they were mostly well behaved and did not present a problem.
Staff were all very polite and helpful, our maid even went to the trouble of locating some peppermint tea for my wife as we had forgotten to bring some with us. We visited during a bit of a heat wave even by Maltese standards but the air con coped very well so our room was always comfortable. Didn't use the spa facilities so cannot really comment on those. Although there was a very nice outdoor pool in the hotel we also had use of the harbour side pool of the hotel next door which could be quite crowded at times, but was great for sunbathing and there were always plenty of sun loungers available.
