“I fell in love”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

I fell in love with a staff member, she is beautiful and graceful but she showed no interest in me so I won't be returning, it would just break my heart.

Can I ask the management to consider hiring less pretty staff.

Room Tip: Take a girlfriend with you

Back from a visit to the Fortina Spa Resort. stylish and comfortable hotel again provided exactly what I want and need from a holiday. The room was large, well-equipped, with a relaxing ambience. The whole stay was wonderful also got a free harbour cruise and a whole day in the spa which was one of the best spa I have ever been too. The reception staff were excellent could not ask for anymore. Only one down would be that it could do with some evening entertainment. Views overlooking the sea are breath taking.

Room Tip: Views over looking the sea are great. views over looking the gardens are just as good as long as you...

As owners for 2 weeks of the year we love Malta the friendly people and culture. the hotel was fantastic 7 years ago but now starting to look and feel like a 4star. Holiday owners I feel are let down trying to book restaurants can be stressful when Saga seem to get priority and have taken over the hotel no seats in the bar in the evening as Saga take over. RITA is amazing and should be rewarded for friendly and happy face will do anything for anyone everyone loves her. We booked extra nights in April to get a shabby room, shower faulty not up to 5 star standards. Now have to book lunch in advance otherwise cannot take you even though restaurant empty. Upgrade to half board and it's sometimes impossible to get a table as most of dine around the world have gone independant. Come om Management pull up your socks and start respecting holiday ownership people Mr and Mrs ........

Room Tip: Sea view in the tower a must stunning views of Valetta

Second stay at the Fortina and this was not so good, front desk staff are young and not very helpful. Rooms are clean but shows signs of needing refurbishing, Glass wardrobe door fell of it's track onto me. Grab handle by bath came away as bracket was rusted through. Glass tops on furniture were dirty underneath.
On half board so went to breakfast, not as good as before. Evening buffet was poor compared to previous experience. Tried to use the Dine around option but limits on how many guests that some of the restaurants would take. General décor of spa swimming pools was poor.
Hassled on first day by hotel rep trying to sell Timeshare for the 5 Star hotel. Heard raised voice with other guests when going into breakfast.

Once again we visited the Fortina Tower Hotel.The staff were all helpful, room service was excellent and the Resturants were outstanding.The staff at Taste must have a special mention,reception staff always friendly and helpful.I would like to make one suggestion to help Reception Staff and reduce waiting Check in time,look a peak times when residents are arriving from the airport,put on additional staff to get people checked in,this will avoid a few complaints and give a good impression to the tourists.
Another point is to improve the curbside looks to the Hotel would be to relay the pavement outside the front of the hotel,put new flower containers outside all the same type and maintain them.Again we will be back next year to our Timeshare.If hiring a car park in the shopping mall next to the Hotel it is safe and keeps the car cool.Location outstanding .Limes bar staff superb.

Room Tip: Try for a room facing Valetta at the front of the hotel.

Just back from a return visit to the Fortina Spa and was again delighted with the hotel, food and in particular the helpful friendy staff several of which in Taste restaurant and Limes Bar are an absolute credit to the hotel where nothing ever seems to be too much trouble to them. Only issue that we would comment on was that despite staying at the hotel on AI basis for some reason AI card was not accepted at the Lido bar despite this being available on all previous visits.

Dear Brian M,

Thank you for your lovely posting. We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and we look forward to welcoming you back in the near future. We would like to advise you that the Fortina Spa Resort All Inclusive Card was not accepted at the Lido because the Lido belongs to the Hotel Fortina and therefore, is not included in the Fortina Spa Resort's All Inclusive Package.

The food in taste is wonderful and the waiters polite and very helpful.The hotel location is also excellent.The main problem is the timeshare,If you show the slighteset interest ,they can spoil your stay.I was told they tell you that you don't pay the first year maintenance fees,have RCI membership ect.All that and their commission is already included in the their quoted price.If you accept you will immediately be about 2ooo euros worse.It is alot cheaper to get the 2 for the price of 1 offer from Spa Travel usually advertised in November
