Golden Tulip Vivaldi Hotel
Ranked #14 of 33 Hotels in Saint Julian's
Reviewed 31 May 2013

Vivaldi – St. Julians – Malta


With the vast variety of hotels in Malta, Vivaldi has to do some shaping up if they want to keep their place.
Booked in for four days within a group visit. At the beginning it all looked good: the room was big, the furniture decent (even if not new), the A/C worked well. The breakfast buffet was also decent and well assorted.
But then the small things started to pop up: they have no coffee making set in the room (4 stars), and we happened to be there while they cleaned the room: better not going into details.
The worst came on the second morning: there was no water in the taps at all! Obviously the reception blamed it on a system failure. But is that what you expect at a 4 star hotel? Shouldn’t they have a backup system? Eventually the water came back after half an hour.
The third day when we came back in the afternoon the keys were not working. Went down to the reception and they re-coded the keys. Saying “sorry” was too much to ask for.
So, if you want to come to Malta, look at one of the myriad of hotels around: you won’t have problem finding a better one for the same money.

The service in this hotel is extraordinary - all the staff seem to go out of their way to make people comfortable and happy. The breakfast and dinner meals offered huge choices and different varieties throughout the week. The hotel location is brilliant and the views from the balcony overlooks a gorgeous bay. The rooms a large and comfortable. The only pity is there is nor small kettle for an early cup of coffee! Highly recommend!

Room Tip: Request a room overlooking the bay, preferable with a large balcony

I would highly recommend this hotel. The manager was absolutely lovely and gave us an excellent rate after hearing our awful experience from the previous hotel. The room was gorgeous and the facilities are excellent. The rooftop pool was very nice and had lovely views of the bay. And food was very delicious. The staff were extremely friendly and catered to our every need.
If you need a hotel to stay in Malta, St Julians, this is the one.

I have nothing but good things to say about this hotel, since the Manager saved us from the dive Hotel across the road, that we were supposed to be staying in!
She gave us a good deal, the staff are very welcoming and whenever we asked for something, we would get this within 10 mins.
The rooms are really good sized, and always cleaned. We got given a seafront view.
Beds are comfy and the breakfast buffet is so yummy!
I especially loved the swimming pool on the roof, which is quite secluded and hardly anyone would be up there.
There is a spa and heated pool and Jacuzzi in the hotel too.
All in all was a very relaxing stay here and i would deffo stay again.

Wifi in rooms. Basic facilities in room. The pool on the roof is great, although I found it by accident...it's not mentioned....but good views and outdoors. The loungers have seen better days! It was a place to get some rays away from people!
The breakfast selection was full and the food was good. Many superb restaurants nearby for supper too.

Room Tip: Not sure if they exist, but a sea view on a high floor would be good....noisy lower down!
