We spent 2 weeks on B&B basis at the end of May to the start of June 2014, the weather was up and down. This was our third visit over the past 8 years to this hotel. It remains our first choice of hotel in Malta. The service is excellent and the concierge Tony was super helpful. All the rooms have sea view and are of good size. The reef club opened at the end of our first week and it is very relaxing at this part of the hotel. The hotel is very close to all amenities within St Julian's but the hotel remains quiet and peaceful. It is a sophisticated and classy hotel with a price tag to match, although well worth it. The hotel has free Wi-Fi but this is only in reception, to have Wi-Fi in your room is an additional charge.

Pools massed with kids, more than 150 counted a day that the hotel allow to the employes to their families to go to the hotel and enjoy the facilities. The service in the pools horrible as well, you end up all the time chasing the waters for something to drink when should me looking after you all the time!. About service we have to highlight the most helpful person, Virginia Zabala, she was worried all the time for our needs and that was nice.

My family and I stayed at the Westin Dragonara Resort and let me tell you it was an amazing time. All the rooms were really nice had balconies, outside was really nice, a great view of the sea, nice pools, great food and the staff were so friendly. I strongly recommend you to put this hotel on the list if you're planning on visiting Malta. It's close to the city and if you are a casino fan there is one right next door.

My family and I fell in love with this little island, we stay in st Julian's at The Westin Dragonara walking distance of a numerous restaurants and night life and easy access by taxi or bus to other areas. The hotel has everything you need if you don't want to travel out and the staff are very friendly and helpful, room was clean and big enough for a family of 4 with 2 double beds and had a lovely sea view balcony. Food was good large portions and reasonably priced. We will be back again

Gorgeous Resort. Within walking distance of numerous restaurants, night life ( if you're under 30). We vacationed with friends that had a 15 year old and a 25 year old and all found something of interest. The resort is massive and has a spot for anything you want to do. Truly appreciated adult only beach and pool area. Food and beverages on site were great but pricey. Staff was genuinely friendly and accommodating. We stayed here because we used Starwoods points otherwise this would have been too pricey for me.

Room Tip: Get a tower room. American Express Starwood.. and you can use points to book room. Avoid rooms near...

After much deliberation over a hotel to stay in we decided on the Westin Dragonara. This was based mainly on reviews & the size of the room.

This is a very good hotel. Friendly check in staff, fantastic huge rooms and the place is spotlessly clean. The room service menu was quite impressive & reasonably priced so we took advantage of this on a couple of occasions.

The gym is fabulous. It's very well equipped and large and doesn't close until 10pm on weekday evenings. Ideal for my husband & I who could team tag with the children & still get our fitness in.

The Kids Club is good & our 2 girls aged 4 & 5 insisted on going twice.

To sum up:

Things I really enjoyed:
Huge rooms
Comfortable beds
Friendly staff
Good food
High standard of cleanliness

Things I didn't enjoy:
No free wifi in rooms which for a five star hotel in this day & age should have as standard. We have this problem in parts of Cyprus too but the Westin is considered to be the best hotel on the island of Malta & attracts a lot of business customers. Come on, throw in the complimentary wifi! Get up to speed with the 21st Century.
