“Friendliest staff ever met”
Reviewed 2 April 2012

Dear Travellers, I've travelled in my time but have never met such, friendly, helpful, polite and professional staff in a hotel from reception, concierge to dining room. They remember your names, help you organise your trips and always smiling. Felt nothing was ever too much. I was on a 2 week holiday and had my partner staying with me for a week-end and friend booked another room during my stay also.

Breakfast was good, hot cooked food, fruit, cereals, continental, juices, bread, teas and coffees. They have gluten free bread if you ask.
Coffee shop sandwiches are very tasty. Try the local maltese bread called Fitr (I think) with tuna, olives, capers, tomatoes and onions. Deeeelicious!
Do not eat here in the evening. 24 Euros for buffet meal which is bland and tasteless.

The room was lovely. Not perfectly clean and tidied everyday as I expected but was ok. Rooms had tiled floors and guests as well as cleaning staff would drag furniture along the floor to make a loud noise. My friends seaview room was aamzing. Top floor, decor nicer and had less neighbours moving their furniture around.
My room had a great view of the Bay. Sun shone in the mornings, filling the whole room up. It was glorious. Bathroom was a good size. The bed was huge and very comfortable. They also provided bath robes and slippers.


During my stay I was unhappy with the service that City sightseeing bus company had provided and the hotel manager named Robert had arranged to obtain free tickets for Malta sightseeing in compensation. It wasn't the hotels fault but they went out of their way to help you enjoy your stay.

The hotel has a shuttle bus which drops you off at Valletta the capital at 0930 and returns you back at 1730.

I'd needed to have the hotel doctor visit me during my stay and Stephen, senior staff at reception was so kind advise that he was made aware that the doctor was called and offered to help if I needed anything. Genuinely lovely staff.

I had booked thru low cost holidays. £40 a night was the rate.

It was located at the end of St Juliens at St Georges Bay. Nightlife, shopping mall, shops and bus stops were all within 5-10 minutes walk.

Solo female travellers beware. Paceville the nightclub district is a few minutes away from the hotel. It also has about 5 gentlemens clubs all on one road. Be wary, I was yelled at by a group of guys working in the kebab stall on the stairs leading to the main street that I was walking past "try my sausage, you can take it for free". If you're a female, not looking like a local....the local males believe that you may work in these clubs and therefore yell at you.
I did feel safe walking around, just was bristled by it.

Room Tip: ask for sea view

Stayed here for a week in March 2012. We found the hotel very clean, great and helpful staff and good on site restaurants. We were a bit out of season so the hotel was very quiet and just gearing up for spring but that meant we never had any problems getting a table in any of the cafe or restaurants. On arrival we opted for inclusive breakfast which was a great decision as there were not to many other places available locally.

Hotel a bit out of town but there are plenty of buses and taxis available. Local nightlife about 500 yards away in Paceville frequented by the local young folk at the weekends. Very lively to say the least.

Hotel highly recommended.

Room Tip: Top floor rooms look fantastic.

I stayed a few nights on a business trip and the hotel was excellent. The airport pick up was on time, reception staff were very welcoming and the check in was done quickly with no fuss. The lobby is clean and well presented and all the staff greeted me with a smile and hello.
The rooms are really good, well laid out with all the necessary amenities. Beds are excellent and the quiet location makes for a good nights sleep. The wine bar and restaurant were excellent as well and the coffee and pastries really world class. The location is ideal for Paceville and the views over the bay are idyllic.
Breakfast buffet is very good with a wide choice.
The only downside was that the towels were a bit hard and grey and wireless in the rooms is expensive at 10E for 10 hours (although it is free in the lobby).
But otherwise, fantastic value for money.

Room Tip: The higher the better.

We were recommended the Bayview Restaurant at the Corinthia Marina Beach Resort for our family sunday lunch, as we had a birthday of a family member to celebrate.

We all really enjoyed our lunch and with the ample variety of food and desserts for all palates and tastes, this mouthwatering food extravaganza went down extremely well. In other words we could not go wrong.

All the staff made us feel very welcome and were friendly and nothing was too much trouble, despite the restaurant being super busy.

The restaurant is very family friendly as well.

The price paid was extremely attractive and it was great value for money.

This is certainly the venue for a family celebrating that special birthday or other important occasion.

I recommend this restaurant without batting an eyelid.

I stayed 3 nights at the Marina on a business trip to the isalnd and I have to say it is a great hotel. Rooms spacious, clean and well-furnished (table and comfy chairs as well as a desk), tea-making facilities, nice furnished balcony overlooking the crystal-clear sea (I believe all the rooms have sea-view balconies), and an extensive breakfast buffet in the morning. Wifi reasonably-priced (1€/hour for unlimited downloads). 5 minutes walk to some good little restaurants in St George's Bay and 20 minutes walk alongside the sea to the main part of St Julian's. Shame I couldn't stay longer, I would happily stay there again, particularly once it's warmer!

Really enjoyed my stay at this hotel. The customer service was excellent (a special thanks to Monica in reception). The hotel is conveniently located 5 mins walk away from Paceville (all bars, restaurants, shopping complex and cinema). The hotel also offer a free bus service to Valletta. You can also use the indoor swimming pool and sauna at the sister hotel which is right next door (you can obtain extra towels from reception). Overall myself and partner really enjoyed our stay at the hotel and would recommend to friends and family.

I was in Malta for a business trip and the hotel was booked for me. I'd checked the website out but have to say it fully exceeded expectations. The food, service & rooms were all excellent and the view was a welcome change to the UK every morning. Just need to go back in nicer weather to make the most of it.
