“Lovely 3 night stay!”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

Myself and my mother chose the hotel for our short break as I have stayed before, we had booked a tower room (requested upper floor) but when we arrived it wasnt available, we didnt want the lower rooms as the balcony seems very enclosed, we were a little dissapointed but the gentleman on reception quickly sorted it out and gave me the room that I stayed in last year (609) which has the best view, we were given a credit for the difference in price.
We stayed this time bed and breakfast so we could try all restaurants within the hotel, we also ate our breakfast every day on the balcony for a small 4euro charge, this was well worth it!
This is definately the best hotel in Malta, the reason for this is because of the staff, they are so so friendly and helpfull, these are the people I want to thank;

Virginia (guest relations) What a lovely helpfull girl, thankyou for allowing us to stay in the room until 4pm that was lovely of you, you spoke to us every day to make sure we were happy and that if there was anything you could do you would be happy to, that made us feel very special (I will be sending a seperate email to hotel to congratulate them on your hard work)

Martina (pool restaurant) Thankyou so much for working so hard to make sure we had everything we needed, you were really helpfull and made sure we didnt wait for anything, we used to enjoy having a little chat to you every day, I look forward to seeing you on my next visit!

Malcom (bar man) Thanks! We thought you were really freindly, you always asked how we were and also the most important thing....always made sure we had a drink!

Thomas (Palios) Thankyou for a lovely meal and you made sure we didnt wait for anything, very professional!

We thoroughly enjoyed all the restaurants within the hotel, Palios I will never forget, it was sensational, I am returning to the hotel in August with my children and I cant wait!

Our first impressions of this hotel were very good,our room had fantastic views and was very comfortable ,the only down side being no bidet in the bathroom.We did ask whether any rooms had any bidets but were told we would have to book a suite!
We used the gym which was very large and well equipped with clean modern machines.The staff were helpful and very knowledgable.
The breakfasts were average and we had a choice of three restaurants for dinner all serving excellent food.
The hotel was conveniently situated to the centre of St Julian's and bus stops .The bus service was excellent and cheap and was an easy way to visit other parts of the island.

Palio's is one of the restaurants at the Westin Dragonara. On entering a notice is displayed saying that this restaurant is an award winning restauranr for 2014. After having been twice I must say that Palio's definitely deserves this award. The staff are polite and efficient, service is impeccable and the food is simply heavenly. We enjoyed eating salmon prepared on a bed of rice, ravioli with cream and mushrooms, pea and chicken rice. Though we had similar dishes in other restaurants, the ones at Palio's get top points. The chef truly deserved our compliments. Food can be served indoors and outdoors when weather permits. We dined al fresco under the stars and by the beach. Parking is no problem. We hope to return again and again. Well done to all at Palio's.

The Westin is located just perfect. Central and close to all amenities. It is a minute walk to Malta's most entertaining night life and seafront promenade. Spoilt for choice. Rooms are over the top and the service is excellent. Westin is not only my preferred hotel but also my number one for corporate events. It caters for all one's needs. Keep it up Westin.

Having read reviews for this hotel we felt confident in our choice of hotel for our honeymoon. From the moment we arrived, which was mid morning we were made to feel welcome. After an hour the receptionist called us to tell us our room was ready early. Wow what a room it was. We had a seaview from three sides and it was beautiful. The room was large, clean and had the largest bed I have seen! A bottle of wine and some petit four were delivered to us as a gift from the hotel for our honeymoon which was lovely. The hotel has excellent customer service, breakfasts are great and the spa and gym were really well equipped. The hiring of trainers ( which were brand new) for a small fee is a great idea and encouraged us to keep fit - a bit! The reception and concierge teams had all the answers to the various questions and assisted when required in an efficient and professional manner. The only very minor thing was that the opening times of the various restaurants and bars was not published anywhere and was a bit confusing - but very minor! An amazing holiday - thank you!

Room Tip: Stay in a Tower Suite if you can, breathtaking views.
