The thing I liked the most in this hotel is magnificent sea view from our balcony.
The room itself was ok, but the bathroom was a bit outdated and with strong smell of chlorine.
Breakfast - good. Service - no complaints. There is a small sandy beach nearby. Another nearby attraction is Paciville - district of nightclubs and wild night life. Strong advise is to bring earplugs, then is will be possible to sleep at night, otherwise the noice is quite disturbing.

We were warmly welcomed at check and the receptionist was very pleasant and helpful.
Our room was comfortable and spacious.
Breakfast was ok with a reasonable choice.
I did find it quite a noisy place to stay however. There was much scraping of chairs from upstairs. On sunny days people were breakfasting on the terrace below our room, so long lies weren't going to happen.
The view out to sea was fine, though the buildings also in the view are not the prettiest. The beach looks nice but it is the location for noisy stag parties etc. The noise from the beach is very loud at night though it seemed to stop about midnight.
I did not enjoy walking through St Julians as it is teeming with young men in search of a good time, even in the early evening. The area near the beach seemed very down market to me, although I do realise that I am not their target market. Scuzzy was the word that came to mind. We took to walking round the edge to avoid as much of the " party" area as possible, although this was a longer route.
Wifi signal was very variable.
The noise and the location mean that I would not stay there again, despite being generally satisfied with the room and hotel.

The marina is a 4 star hotel within the Corinthia Beach Resort - the Corinthia hotel is 5 star but you
can use all the amenities. Wonderful pools lots of sunbeds never crowded beautiful view of the bay from our superior seaview room. We stayed B&B and breakfasts were good lots of choice. One of the things we often find is that buffet breakfast food is often lukewarm but here if you put your selection on your plate the very amenable chefs will put it under the grill for you for a minute so its nice & hot. All members of staff were very helpful & friendly from the restaurant to front desk staff. We were seen into a taxi outside on our departure by the head receptionist with a handshake to all of us and some complementary cakes from the coffee shop to see us on our way. Pity all hotels are not the same as this one.Efficient,friendly and never pretencious.

Twelve in our party this year, average age 69. One disabled ambulant in wheelchair. This hotel is excellent for wheel chair users - the grounds around the pools complex all ramped. As usual the staff are the stars of the experience. Nothing too much trouble if asked for politely. The staff are the reason we come back year after year. One of our party, gluten intolerant, was catered for with special desserts. We were staying on a half board basis, and the meals were all excellent with a varied choice each day. Friday was a special themed Spanish night, which was voted by us all as the best.

Rooms were cleaned to a high standard, and the beds are so comfortable!

For younger vacationers than us - the night club centre of Paceville is just a short stroll down the hill from the peninsular position of the hotel, and a (presumably) a slightly longer stagger back!

I recommend that you seriously consider this hotel if you are contemplating visiting Malta.

Read my previous annual reports - I stand by all of them. That's why we return year after year.

Room Tip: Fifth Floor Sea View Rooms recommended.

Have stayed at the Corinthian next door on a previous occasion so as as this was the sister hotel and slightly closer to walk into town and cheaper we thought we would give it a go, and you could use the facilities of the Corinthian still which are excellent as they have lovely pools plus the lido for access to the sea. As we stayed second week of May and it wasnt full season yet the snack areas near the lower pools were not open and also there were no ladders to help you in/out of the sea, but this was minor and didnt stop people inc us going in we just found an easy spot to get in via the rocks. There were lots of staff around making sure it was looking nice ready for the peak season so its good to see they keep on top of maintenance and it doesnt interfere with your stay at all. Staff at the Marina were so helpful and friendly it was a lovely buffet breakfast the room was very nice too amazing views. The only negative, as has been mentioned before, was the room was very hot (as in full sun most of the day) so had to keep curtains shut during day til the sun moved and altho the air con was working as in blowing air out, it wasnt particularly cold air so we had to keep balcony doors open to let cool air in at night. I expect this would be in full working order when the season kicks off and temperatures get hotter outside, but as it was around 20 outside I can understand why they wouldnt put it on yet, but it was the sun on the room that made it too hot and I am sure tourists would appreciate it on a little earlier in the year.

Room Tip: Sea view rooms are amazing but if its not the right time of the season the rooms could get very warm...

When was the moment to choose an hotel in Malta I, having seen various opportunities, decided for this one. A lot of doubts arised in my mind: will be this Hotel too large?, too far from Valletta? and other.
The result was that I find one of the best one in Malta. A wonderful and exclusive location, rooms very large and always in order. The distance from Valletta very easy to cover with and without the help of the staff.
Just in front the Hotel you have the bus stop.
No problems at all in the Hotel and the friend with me:10 people agree with my opinion.

I have just returned from Marina Hotel Corinthia and My friend and I had a brilliant time.
The reception staff are so attentive and most helpful - we arrived before check in time, the room wasn't ready but we were able to change and keep our luggage in a secure room for collection on check in.
The hotel is just round the little bay so location wise ideal for both a quiet time or 2 mins walk to lively area and shopping mall.
Our room was very spacious and very comfortable - lovely see view room too.
The breakfast was very ample - full English/fresh omelettes and eggs cooked as requested and fruit and yoghurts etc.
Value for money - a definite I would recommend this hotel and surroundings.
All staff very very friendly and everyone in the small bars on the bay were so friendly and accommodating.
Will definitely return and probably with a few more friends next time.
