This was hotel #2 on our honeymoon to Malta (first was InterContinental Saint Julian). POSSIBLY THE BEST HOTEL I HAVE EVER STAYED IN!
True 5 star hotel. It's beautiful, well taken care of, has great facilities, great rooms, very good food and the service is just top notch! The view from the pool is breathtaking also.
Keep in mind that if (like me and my wife) you prefer to walk instead of driving or taking a taxi you are looking at many stairs going up just to get out of the hotel onto the street. So if you have any kind of mobility issues or bad knees etc you may want to use the hotel's shuttle or call a taxi.
The service in the hotel is absolutely incredible, the front desk staff is friendly and very helpful. When checking out and going to the airport don't bother with a taxi, because the hotel shuttle will get you there for practically the same price in new, air-conditioned vehicles.
Our room was amazing! clean, well decorated and pretty spacious. The swimming pool and beach area is always clean, with lots of poolside chairs and 2 bars.
Overall our stay was quite great and Valletta is a beautiful city with lots of history.
If I was to write anything negative at all about this place is that there is really no bar/night life scene near by. So if you're looking for that, paceville in Saint Julian is a better fit. However, if you are looking for 5 star luxury, this is it!
