Paid extra to upgrade to this hotel after deciding we would like to take an all inclusive option which the Fortina 4 Star Hotel which we had initially booked did not offer. In addition we were disappointed to find when we arrived that whilst we had paid the tour operator extra for a sea view room in the Fortina 4 Star Hotel we had been allocated a garden room.
We took a tenth floor sea view room at the Fortina Spa which has wonderful views overlooking Valletta.
The room was clean and spacious. The balcony was large enough for 2 sun loungers and was a nice shady place to relax in the hot afternoon sun. The bathroom had both a bath and walk in shower which and was a good size. The chamber maids kept the room very clean and tidy and were very pleasant and helpful. It was slightly irritating that the hotel rooms may not be cleaned up until 4.30 pm.
We thought the food in Taste was excellent and the staff were very welcoming and courteous.
As regards to being on the tenth floor it was annoying to find that out of 2 lifts on occasions only one was in use.
We enjoyed using the indoor swimming pool although it is a bit of a maze to enter through the Fortina Spa entrance. The pool the safety rail brackets are broken in places and are insecure.
We feel that the terms and conditions should be made clearer on all inclusive packages.
We would love to return to this hotel although bearing in mind the Fortina Spa and Fortina 4 Star appear to be associated hotels we would be concerned that we may turn up and find that we have not been allocated the type of room requested.
