You are met at the door by the admirable Heathcliffe!! What a star..nothing is too much trouble for him and all the staff. Having stayed there approx 8 times in the last 3 months, the whole experience just gets better and better. Great facilities, particularly the pool and its bijou "beach". From here you can watch the oligarchs' "yachts" berth...amazing. They're bigger than some of the Royal Navy boats. Tiki restaurant by the pool is particularly good vfm. Buffet supper also worth a try for 30 euros.
Very cosmopolitan staff, from charismatic Maltese to ultra efficient Russians, Dutch and German who always have a smile on their faces. Billy, Edon, Lydia, Marie Clare, Jordan.....Solange , Gwen, Maria too many wonderful people to mention who try their utmost to meet your requests. Within walking distance of the centre of historic Valetta. Big, modern hotel that succeeds in treating each guest as though you are THE guest to be attended to.
Management also regularly available to listen to your ideas--Weds evening drinks at the bar to give them feedback.
So it's definitely not Victorian or the place where Cathy would seek her Heathcliffe. Great place from which to explore the whole of Malta--don't forget to go to Gozo! Only drawback......the toasters at breakfast aren't very efficient...Ha!!!
