“Great hotel with fantastic food and location”
Reviewed 13 June 2010

We spent 5 nights at the Marina Beach and were very pleasantly surprised. I had not been to Malta before and had originally looked at booking a room in St Julians but saw a deal for the Marina Beach on Last minute.com and grabbed it.

I am so glad we did, St Georges bay is the closest swimming beach around and the Marina Beach hotel has it's own private access to the bay so that you can easily dip into the ocean then back to the sun bed and there are plenty of sun beds you are spoilt for choice. In addition to all of the ammenities at the Marina Beach you are allowed to use all the facilities at the Corinthia San Gorg next door which is a 5 star hotel so you have double the space/pools and luxury to choose from. We don't normally eat at the hotel restaurants as the local options are normally better quality and value for money but this was not the case here. We ate at the Da Marina, Vinoteque and the Henry J Beans (in the hotel next door) all were great and good value for money. I recommend Da Marina for the beautiful view of the sunset out on the terrace. The only down side were the staff in the restaurants you can often get forgotten about so expect to spend a lot of time waiting (this appeared to be the case everywhere though not just at the hotel) everyone is definitley on "Island Time".

We had a sea view room which was just beautiful and had a lovely view of the bay and the harbour. A word of warning though the balcony doors only open from the inside of the room so if you are both on the balcony enjoying an evening wine be careful not to shut the door as you will be locked out of your room (we almost did this it was very close)

By staying in St Georges bay we had the beach and water on our door step but we were only a bus ride away from the cultural sights and shops that malta has to offer.

I would definitley stay here again

Once again we visited the Marina Hotel and once again a great time was had by all. (take the time to look at our previous reviews) We cannot praise this hotel too highly. The staff lived up to our expectations as being the friendliest on the island. In room tea and coffee making facilities have been added since last year and rooms redecorated. The buffet breakfast and dinner has to be one of the best on the island. We shall be back same time next year.

It is a pitty that such a wonderful Hotel, with friendly staff that serve with a genuine smile slips on tiny details that for customers like myself are of great importance such as the cappucino at cafe 24, which is made with Italian ILLY coffee, but 8 times out of 10 is coffee with hot milk. Staff should be trained to serve a proper a Capuccino! That is to say, my only complaint, as the food is excellent, and the rooms comfortable and i would recommend this hotel to a friend.

Thank you very much for making our stay pleasurable, We were unable to fly home due to the ash crisis and Easyjet placed us at this hotel. The room was excellent, very light with a balcony. The bathroom was bright, modern and clean. The whole hotel was a pleasure to be in. The food was superb (the only holiday abroad I have had with a great Vegetarian choice) My partner loved the fried breakfasts and roast dinners. The cakes were gorgeous !!! The hotel was in a great location, with the beach and town just down a couple of minutes down the road. We would certainly pay to come back. Thanks again.

Agree almost word for word with nnmercman review in March. We were also on a 52 euro per room per night deal including breakfast for 3 which is excellent value for money for a 4* (it's not really a 5*). Breakfast outside on the patio overlooking St George's Bay is very memorable.
Internet access should be better than one computer and having to try to beat the teenagers on Facebook! Take a laptop and pay 5 euro per hour or internet cafe 3 min walk away 3 euro per hour.
Car parking near the hotel was OK in April, you'd probably have a longer walk in the summer or pay to go underground.
I would like to praise the SCUBA diving setup based on the hotel jetty, Starfish Diving. It is run by a Russian couple Mikhail and Gulya who are excellent, friendly, helpful, knowledgeable. Kit is good and their approach very professional. They gave me a really good refresher and my 13 year old son his first 3 dives including Gozo. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience.
Good restaurants in St Julian's were Bianco's, Paparazzi and for a more expensive and stylish option Zest, all only 10 minutes walk.

The location of hotel was fine, bus stop right outside and walking distant to shops and restaurants. Hotel itself didn't feel like a 5*, I actually thought it was a 4 until the reception told me it was 5!
The rooms are average, clean, good shower and has all the shampoo and hair dryers, there are no dressing gowns, slippers or cotton pads/buds!

The view was nice but the balcony is so dirty and it has white plastic chairs and tables that has turned yellow- really tacky.

There was a power cut on the whole island and this '5*' hotel doesn't have a generator we were in darkness for a couple of hrs. Reception told us power cuts on the island happens often- so surely they should get a generator! Intercontinental has generator and therefore unaffected and we were hanging around there for ages!

After power cut, the fuse went in our room, we called reception thinking it was a power cut again, but it wasn't, it was just our room. Instead of sending someone to fix the issue, he offered us torches! TORCHES?! in a 5*? I went a bit crazy. Reception also had to cheek to ask 'have you never been in a black out?' he asked me twice, as if black outs were such a common occurrence & I was stupid not to have experienced it.

Anyway in the end I demanded for a room with lights!!! and he had to send us to the sister hotel San Gorg up the road, all this happened at 4am! Reception dealt with my madness v.well.

Other than having no lights in our room, the hotel is fine, clean and staff are friendly, I would recommend because its cheap but you might not have lights!

Booked the hotel in St Julians based on previous reviews and were not disappointed.
First time visitors to Malta we had a very enjoyable and relaxing 5 night stay. The hotel is located on the edge of St Julians enjoying a very pleasant setting overlooking the bay.
As the wife is almost 6 months pregnant and had recently celebrated her 30th birthday the girl at reception kindly changed the room we had been allocated to a room with a seaview on the 4th floor. A nice gesture which she really didnt have to do, and throughout our stay the staff were more than courteous and helpful.
The rooms were comfotable and clean with basic enough shower facilities but served our needs ok.
Breakfast was included and offered a great selection of cereals, breads, eggs and cooked sausages/bacon as well as fruits. We didnt sample the resturant for dinner but there is a good selection of eateries within the complex, such as Grill and Henry J Beans which although not fine dining are grand if the 10 minute walk to better establishments isnt fancied.
Overall the hotel was a good choice and we wouldnt hesitate staying at the Marina should we return to St Julians. There is ample lounging area around each of the pools and although still March the temperaures were fine for chilling out and catching a few rays. Any visitors considering a short break to St Julians could do worse than basing themselves in the Marina..

PS.. Out of the restaurants we visited in St Julians Zest is well worth the visit with a great varied menu of East & West cooking in a beautiful restaurant with very attentive staff.. A good experience
