Lets start with the hotel marina. Firstly we had interconnecting rooms which was ideal and meant that my two daughters had their own bathroom and balcony - peace for us! The bathrooms are spacious and are stocked with shampoo, shower gel, soap etc - the rooms were very clean and the maid was in every day. We also had lovely white robes and a little clothes line - the hotel dont want clothes hanging over the balcony. Balcony was small but that didnt matter it was lovely to sit and watch the little boats go up and down. Air conditioning worked well and the mini bar is well stocked although very expensive. These little bars are hidden which stops the air from circulating well and this prevents the drinks inside becoming ice cold. The hotel is very clean. The food choice is fab but unfortunately is always luke warm and sometimes the quality of the meat is just okay. The desserts are brilliant so overall the restaurant is good. The poolside bar is not good. Slow service (thats if you get any) and i felt a bit pricey. Has a small play area for the very young and one snooker table. If you go down to the beach (which is grit not sand) there is a lovely little restaurant which serves food at a reasonable price, staff are chatty and prices good. A buddweiser beer costs 2 euro here not 4 at the poolside. You can pay anything for water just depends where you are from 75 cents to up to 2 euro for small bottle. The reception staff are helpful although they dont tell you that the black cabs are much cheaper than the white ones - so before you book any trips check out black cab prices it is well worth it. The hotel had no entertainment at all. Bit boring at night as all you can do is go for a walk - i feel that this hotel would benefit if it put on entertainment at night also i didnt see anything to buy at the hotel so just felt that it forced you out of the hotel when it should be trying to keep its guests within thereby making more money. You have to walk down to the beach area and up through the bars to find shops or the nearest supermarket. The beach and bar area known as paceville is for 17 years of age - very young set as some of the other hotel guests found out so again you have to look at going to other areas for some form of night life. Really if you want to lie by the pools (water is so cold) and relax have dinner and go to bed then this hotel is for you. If you have a young family god knows what you would do at night cause there isnt alot to do. Maltese i think are not happy being in the EU and the maltese people we spoke to confirmed this. They changed the buses whilst we were there which was interesting - old bus drivers made sure that everyone knew they were not happy with this - but the new buses are great so use them as they are a cheap form of transport. Valleta is worth seeing although the hotel courtesy bus only ran once a day and was on a first come first serve basis .The fishing harbour at Marsaxlokk is worth visiting it is very pretty and it is worth speaking to locals for lovely places to swim. It has a sunday flea market although the quality of goods is a bit iffy apart from the maltese lace which is stunning. Back to the Hotel then - they had to introduce a voucher for pool towels so you either collect them from reception or the pool bar and you get your tickets when you return them which is okay - they put our umbrellas down one day at the pool cause they were blowing over - if they were not so rusty at the bottom they could have tightened them up but hey ho so you were left with no shade in 30 degrees. Apart from lukewarm food and nothing to do at night this hotel is okay but does it warrant 4 stars maybe not. Its sister hotel is right next door and it is five stars . Its poolside bar serves ice cold water and drinks worth walking up to. I certainly wouldnt go back to st julians area no buzz - no vibrancy nothing. Had to laugh when the hotel recommends you stay out of the sun from 12 to 4 what do you do then sleep? This was our first trip to Malta - it looks tired it needs to move up a gear if it wants to attract the younger generation it now needs to move with the times if it wants to succeed in tourism. It is steeped in history but thats it.
