Our first visit to Malta, so cannot compare with the past. However, we were very pleased with all aspects of our stay at the Phoenicia. Booked as a package with Thomsons, standard room with half board.
Our room on 2nd floor faced out over Floriana (opposite side to Valletta) and the setting sun. Clean, good size (for "standard"), and no smells or noise! Food was very good for both Breakfast and Dinner. Table d'hote selection (included for us) in Phoenix restaurant changed daily and was always very good, in quality and quantity. The a la carte allowance (for use in either restaurant) was generous (being equivalent value) but we actually preferred the Table d'hote, generally.
All the staff were helpful and friendly. In particular, Carmen (Phoenix restaurant) deserves a special mention.
Probably not the best time of year to judge the hotel gardens but they are extensive with further good views and a nice walk in themselves. Pool area was quiet being somewhat off-season but would be a good spot on a hot sunny day.
The location of the hotel is perfect - both for Valletta and for buses to the rest of the island. Buses were excellent, routes, frequency and value. Much to see within walking distance of hotel in all directions.
More of a city break/historic attractions tour for us than a "sun holiday" so all in all a lovely week. Very likely to return to Malta and to the Phoenicia hotel, in particular.
Worth mentioning that there is a significant amount of building work going on currently - in prep for European City of Culture 2018, I believe. Spoils some of the photo opportunities but otherwise wasn't over-intrusive.
