“Very Good Hotel!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 February 2010

I stayed with my partner at the Corinthia Marina in summer 2008 and found the hotel to be very clean and comfortable. The breakfast buffet was very extensive and also featured maltese specialties, such as pastizzi and ricotta cheese pies which were addictive, in addition to the ubiquitous full english and continental options. The rooms were very clean and well appointed, ours had a good view of St George's Bay. The meals in the hotel were again very good and well cooked, although the drinks were fairly expensive and we were also given a whole bottle of wine when we asked for a half bottle!
There is a small town of Paceville nearby with the lively Bay Street complex, with cinema, shops and bars and there are some smaller bars and those of the Radisson Bay Point and Corinthia St George nearby, but entertainment in this hotel was poor at the time in our view. It may have changed in the year or so since we stayed. Bus links are good, with a service which passes the hotel and carries on to St Julians and Sliema. It is also a good walk to St Julians which has a good range of shops and if you are brave, like we were, you can walk to Sliema!
The hotel was clean and comfortable and very good. Thanks especially to Mr Grech on reception and Wayne and Joseph, Room cleaner and Porter for making our stay so very nice! We will be back!

We have just returned from a long weekend at the Marina Corinthia. The price we paid made us a little concerned at what we might find. However, we were delighted with our very comfortable and well appointed room with a large balcony and wonderful views across the bay. The staff were very efficient, pleasant and helpful. The food was very good indeed and we received very good service. We would definitely recommend The Vinotheque in the hotel for excellent food , friendly staff and very reasonable prices.The locaton is great and close to shops, restaurants and night life. We would definitely return.

The hotel was in a great location away from busy roads but within a few minutes walk of shops and restaurants. Our balcony had beautiful views of the sea and the only sounds were waves lapping. The room was clean the the bed comfortable. Only irritations were the temperature in the shower varied slightly while using it and we had to pay 12€ to use the room safe and €5 per hour for wifi.

The hotel was very close to Paceville which is full of bars with loud music. It took us a little while to find where the restaurants were but once we did there were plenty.

The Marina is part of the Corinthia group of hotels, there are three on the Island, the Corinthia San Gorg is adjacent to the Marina and forms part of the resort.
I must declare this is the fourth time we have stayed here, but there have been some improvements in the hotel and it is worth noting.
We stayed with an inland view, we could see the sea, but having had several sea views in the past and water is, well, just water, we decide to go for the economy of an inland view over the catering college at the rear of the hotel.
Having read previous reviews I must admit there was a little noise from the underground nightclub, but only as revellers departed early morning, and this was only on the Friday and Saturday nights, which to be honest didn't disturb us at all.
The room we stayed in had recently been refurbished with good quality linen and was well decorated and very clean, this is one area the hotel has improved.
The breakfast had a massive choice of food full English, continental, meats fruits, croissants, I counted seven different types of bread and if you wanted something special the chef would cook it there and then for you. You cant beat that.
We didn't sample the evening meal in the hotel as we were on B+B.
The Vinotheque wine bar was quite busy the food looked appetizing but the price of the wine was astronomic 27 euros for a 6 euro bottle of wine is taking the mickey.
Cafe 24 was as ususal good service, good food, excellent pasties and baguettes, especially the ftira's.
There is a pain in using the indoor pool, yes you have to walk across around 100 yards to the San Gorg.
Food wise we use the Bistro at the Radisson, next door, a five minute walk up the hill, excelllent food reasonably priced 24/7 with a reduced menu after 23:00.
Beware if you wish to dine in the evening at peak times BOOK A TABLE it is very popular withe the locals.
I thoroughly recommend the hotel, if you are a clubber, its a five minute walk to Paceville and all the vodka and noise you require.
If you want peace there's the peace of the beach a five minute walk downhill.
If you want culture the sightseeing buses pass the door, theres a free shuttle from the hotel to Sliema also.
You will not be disappointed here.
IF YOU ACCEPT MALTA FOR WHAT IT IS THIS HOTEL IS WELL PRICED FOR THE STANDARD IT OFFERS.
We have also stayed at the San Gorg, Le Meridian (in a suite) Radisson Bay point, the Waterfront in Sliema, the Santana Qwara Palace, Suncrest in Qwara, and when the Jerma Palace was operating we stayed there.
We know Malta and what we are talking about regarding hotels.
One last comment, parking a car can be difficult on Fridays and Saturdays for free, use the San Gorg hotel's car park its free and only a five minute walk, we have used it for years.
If you need more info contact us.

Our side of the hotel was facing St. George's Bay, which was beautiful. The beds are great and you get lots of pillows. Our breakfast was included and is wonderful. We didn't pay for the hotel so we don't know the price of it. The hotel is walking distance from Paceville, where the party lasts all night but we can't hear a peep from our room.

Perhaps the only downside is that the water in the showers fluctuate temperatures like someone is consistently flushing the toilette. Not intolerable though.

We had a great holiday in Malta. The hotel was perfect for us, location was excellent and the views into the bay were stunning. It was only a 5 mins walk into the Paceville to the restaurants and bars. Did not think the hotel was noisy from Paceville and could not hear a thing. There are more than enough places to choose from sunbathing, sitting around the pool's (4 in total) or down by the sea. The great thing about this hotel was there were no English people or Germans putting towels on the beds, clearly as there are so many of them you don't have to do it. Lots of Spanish and Italians guests. Buffet breakfast was excellent. The evening dinner buffet was soso but the view was stunning. Luckily we were able to swap our evening voucher for a meal at the local Italian restaurant next door. The reception was really helpful for guidance on local visits. All in all our holiday was excellent and the hotel stay certainly helped it to be so good. There is a star fish dive centre attached to the hotel, which is great. Their service was excellent, so helpful and friendly. It was the lady at the dive centre reception that told us about the area and the buses. Great perfect holiday!

This is a lovely hotel in a beautiful position. It is away from the noise of the night life but in easy walking distance. There were loads of sunbeds on different levels so you could lay beside one of the pools or by the sea. I should imagine it would not be very relaxing if you have a young family as the terrace has lot's of steps/slopes which were very slippy when wet and it is a little like a maze! there were a lot of small children while we were there and it could get pretty noisy around the pools but it was very easy to find a quite spot. The rooms were very nice, good balcony - we had a lovely view of the bay, the rooms were very clean and the beds were very very comfortable. We asked for tea and coffee making facilities in our room which they provided but the tea and coffee was not re-stocked after the first use until my husband asked for it! We stayed bed and breakfast and the breakfast was nice. We didn't use the bar or stop around for the hotel entertainment as we had a busy itinerary, we went to the MTV Isle Concert which was excellent (and free!!) we saw Lady GaGa and the Black Eyed Peas it was a great experience. We both said that we would come back to this hotel as we found it very relaxing and the staff friendly. There is a small beach on the bay it was very crowded but free.
