We stayed for a week, bed & breakfast, in this 5 star hotel. Our “Tower Sea View Room” had everything we wanted, 5 ft very comfortable bed, AC, TV, Mini-bar, armchairs, tea/coffee facilities, nice bathroom, bathrobes/slippers, but most especially a spacious veranda with beautiful views of Valetta, Malta’s capital city.
This hotel is mainly geared for adults, with children permitted only for limited holiday periods. We had breakfast every morning in Taste Restaurant in the poolside “tropical garden”. Waiter service is provided for tea/coffee and there is lots of good quality choice for cooked or cold breakfast. One great bonus is the availability of freshly cook eggs (any way you want it) at the bar that fronts the cooking area. Didn't rain very often, but when it did, the hotel provided umbrellas!
Our package allowed us the use of the indoor spa facilities on one occasion (after that, there was a charge of €18 per person per day). We used the spa one of the days when it rained heavily – with hydrotherapy pool, swimming pool, sauna, steam room and all manner of other water therapies, too varied to mention - all most enjoyable!
Every other day, we used the outdoor swimming pool in the 4 star Fortina Hotel, just 70 meters away. This sister hotel also has a gym, which I used every day, and an indoor heated swimming pool and whirlpool. These facilities provide stunning views of Valetta at the other side of the bay.
Fortina Spa Hotel is in an ideal location, close to bus routes (€7 gets you a weekly ticket to go anywhere on the island and Valetta is only 25 minutes by bus), ferries (to Valetta) and cruises around the island. An additional bonus is the Point Shopping Centre just around the corner and a good selection of restaurants and bars nearby in the opposite direction.
One minor irritation was the lifts, as one of the two serving our block was out of action for most of the week.
That being said, we really enjoyed our holiday and hope to come back for another stay at a future date.
