“Close, but far enough away from the party in St Julian”
Reviewed 1 September 2013

We stayed at the hotel for a week and we were very pleased with the service the staff provided. After arriving with an early morning flight, the front desk arranged an early check in for us. We had two different bookings, but they also arranged so we wouldn't have to change room in the middle of our stay.

We had booked a standard deluxe room, but we were upgraded to a junior suite with a large balcony. The room was nice with a newly renovated bathroom, though the layout was slightly interesting. There is no door or wall to the bathroom, when lie in the bed you see everything that goes on in there.

The pool area is nice with lots of sunbeds and you also have the choice to use a ladder on the cliffs to go swimming in the sea.

The breakfast buffet is good, I would say above average. The bars at the hotel serves great and decently priced drinks. We also tried the BBQ buffet on night which was good, but we preferred walking into St Julian's and try different restaurants there.

The cleaning was good, no remarks on that.

Radisson offers free wifi, we like that! They also have a well equipped gym if you feel like working out while staying there.

I can absolutely recommend this hotel.

Me and my partner stayed at this hotel and I thought it was exceptional! Upon arrival staff were really polite and friendly and check in was not a problem! After been told where our room was we got to the room and was very pleased with it! The beds were really comfortable and it was nice and quiet! After waking up the next day we went to breakfast which I though was excellent! The staff were happy to assist to any needs! After having a loverly breakfast, we then went to the pool (The one with the slide) and we relaxed around the pool, the people were very nice and it was a loverly atmosphere! The pool was salty but that was ok. After having a relaxing afternoon around the pool we decided to stay around the hotel and relax for the night. The next morning we again went down and had a loverly breakfast.. After that we went out for the day and came back late to the hotel, it was nice and quiet no one being too nosy and loud. When checking out our flight wasn't until late but the staff were happy to put our luggage into the luggage room until we came and collected it. Over all I would defiantly recommend this hotel to anyone great for families, couples, solo or business! Would book with this hotel again!!

Room Tip: Rooms on the 5th floor are really nice!

We stayed there for over a week. Location was good, hotel area was excellent with many swimming pools (3 of those was salty sea water, but that was ok). However, hotel rooms and hotel look needs renovation. Beds are really bad.

Service attitude was good (as it should be) but implementation wasn´t. Somehow service was struggling and fumbling. Service was soooo slow and mistakes happened. So, check your hotel bill.
I do not know how hotels get their stars, but this wasn´t a five star hotel.

Same fumbling and extreme slow service was typical for Malta. If you are hungry or thirsty, be patient. They are trying not enough.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking your time to review our resort. We are glad to hear that overall your stay was enjoyable. On the other hand we are sorry to hear that the service received at the resort and throughout the island did not live up to your expectations. Although August is Malta's peak month for tourism, this does not excuse any disservice from any of the area's many catering outlets. May we look forward to being able to welcome you back on your next visit.

Sincerely,

Aaron Vella

We recently visited this hotel on our honeymoon and we had an amazing time! We had just been visiting Sicily and this was the second part of our honeymoon. About 3 nights into our stay we decided to relax in the hotel rather than going out and take advantage of the plush surroundings. We also had a gorgeous, large room with an amazing view of the sea. The only thing I would say was that the TV was a bit old school but hey we weren't there to watch TV!
Anyway, I decided to message Mr Aron Vella (the manager) and try my luck to see if we could get a perk from the hotel as it was our honeymoon. In no time at all he had arranged to meet us and upgrade us to a suite for the remainder of our stay! It was jaw dropping! We were so grateful at his kind hospitality and could not believe how quickly he arranged such a lovely perk for us. We had a sea view from our massive bed and a gigantic balcony where we had dinner on the final night. It was so romantic and really made our holiday.
The rest of the hotel was also well managed and enjoyable. We had a delicious breakfast and my husband liked having a few drinks of an evening at the bridge bar during happy hour which he found to be very agreeable. People have mentioned the mini bar and the fact that your room gets charged in previous reviews but this is not really a problem as the hotel checks to see if you have been using it or not so you don't get charged unnecessarily.
All in all, a place to recommend and we will definitely be coming back. Malta itself is a wonderful place with some of the nicest people you will have the pleasure to meet.
Thank you for your hospitality Mr Vella and your team. We look forward to seeing you again!

We have been going to this hotel for a weekend break every year. Always been very please with everything it has to offer. Rooms are up to standard, the pool area is fantastic, Breakfast has everything and very friendly staff.

The reason for the headline was that this time we had a couple of glitches. First the room wasn't clean as one would expect, mostly the floor and balcony. They did clean it upon our second request and followed it up after. Secondly at one point we had no electricity (apart from the lighting of the lampshades). They did fix the situation quickly but it was a strange situation.

All in all would go again next year.

We stayed there for 4 days, excellent location, big swimming pools, fine restaurants. Since the wheather was extremely hot and the humidity really impossible we spent most of our time in the hotel. If the accomodation wasn;t so great we would not have appreciate our stay in Malta so much.

Room Tip: Make sure you ask for a room with a sea view.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for choosing the Radisson Blu Resort St. Julian's for your stay in Malta. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed our hotel. Since you found the temperatures in August to be rather high, may I suggest you choose October, November or March, April for milder weather on your next visit. These would be the best months for exploring the Maltese Islands. May we look forward to welcoming you back on your next visit.
