We have been to Malta before but as this was likely to be our last visit for a while we thought we would stay in style. We were not disappointed from the first moment we stepped into the magnificent lobby entrance, with background views of the sea and outside pools. It also looked over the restaurant area below. There was a pianist playing in the lobby too which created a lovely atmosphere.
Check in was smooth and we were upgraded to a sea view which was a nice surprise. A welcome drink was also given as soon as we reached the reception desk which was a good touch after our journey. We had room 837 which was large and airy, with fantastic views across the sea and pool areas from the balcony. The room had all the normal gadgets, but the complimentary tea / coffee making facilities was an added bonus which was welcomed. The only glitch here was we were a couple and the room had twin beds! But we decided that as the room was so good and we were upgraded, it was easy enough to push the beds together anyway. The bathroom was spacious with a good power shower and instant hot water any time of the day.
We were half board and were overwhelmed with the amount of food choice on offer for ALL meal times. It was a buffet basis, but the quality of food was excellent. If you are not half board and if you only decide to have one meal in the restaurant, then it must be the Saturday night or Sunday lunch buffet banquet, unbelievable!! The staff at ALL levels have been SO friendly and warm, and cannot do enough for you. It makes the stay all the more enjoyable and I would consider only this hotel for any future stays in Malta. Restaurant staff mention time - Charlo Cachia (Oceana Restaurant Manager, very friendly, helpful and welcoming. Mary who made the pancakes one night and the chef (who did some training in Portsmouth) that cooked the breakfast eggs. All very happy, smiley and friendly! But as I have already said, ALL the staff: reception, house keeping, concierge, waiters and waitresses - all spot on and very efficient! Thank you and please let all the areas know they are appreciated.
Wi-Fi is free in the lobby areas and sometimes we had intermittent connection in our room as well, although you have some pay options for stronger, permanent connections if you need to be connected to the outside world at all times - for us it was not an issue.
Our last day we decided to have an "afternoon tea for two" and wow, it was plentiful and we had to go down for dinner much later that night as we were too full. It was excellent value and again tasted lovely. Thanks to all that made our stay as perfect and relaxing as it was.
