My husband and I are frequent guests at this 5-star hotel and I can truly say that with each and every time we were there (15 stays over 5 years), our stay was always pleasurable and we never left disappointed. Being a couple whose profession also deals in a certain way in customer relations (my husband in the banking world and myself having worked with French people and now with a law firm) , we are very sensitive to how staff of other establishments treat us and we are so very pleased that the staff employed at this hotel are courteous , polite, and smart besides always being attentive to render service to their guests . This hotel guarantees a high standard of service and hospitality.
We enjoy spending our holidays at this hotel because the general ambiance of the hotel is calm, unintrusive, comfortable, chic and one upon entering the hotel one can immediately feel oneself relaxing and winding down.
The lobby is welcoming, spacious and luxurious and we enjoy reading the daily papers after breakfast plus there is also an interesting book room situated on the 9th floor. There are many terraces for the guests in labyrinth form spread over some of the floors and we enjoyed ourselves relaxing in the shade of a large umbrella on comfy sofas enjoying the sea breeze at tea-time hour .
The spa is wonderful, spacious and refreshing with a beautiful large indoor pool. On several occasions we booked a massage against a fee, however, there are often special discounts and offers on the prices. We tend to spend much time in the spa area as the ambiance is so very relaxing, tranquil and is a real booster to the spirit. The gym is well equipped too and we slogged there to build up a healthy appetite to enjoy our buffet breakfast.
An outdoor pool is situated on the 12th floor and we’ve been there too – the view over the Balluta Bay is tremendous. There’s a well-stocked open air bar/restaurant and one can eat there whilst enjoying the open air and sights. We also enjoyed dining in the evening up in the cool air.
The main dining area inside the hotel is spacious, comfortable which I like because I feel at ease being seated at tables which are well spaced apart and not crammed and most importantly it is nice to be served by doting waiting staff who guarantee a good service all round. The food served is delicious, it is well presented and pleasing to the eye and the dishes are wide, varied and plentiful. I really enjoy my breakfasts there ( which is buffet) and being a fussy person that I am when it comes to quality of food, I am regaled to see good quality food served for example delicate French cheese and delicious Italian salamis…
Dinner is also served a la carte and on some days as a buffet and we’ve enjoyed our dinners too – the food is so lovely prepared, there is a choice for every course served , such a variety of meats, desserts to choose from … the desserts are not to be missed because they are heavenly .
The bedrooms are very comfortable and cosy and on many an occasion we had a room with a seaview also with a terrace or two. I have passed many a personal quiet hour simply sitting on a chair sipping coffee whilst gazing upon the blue sea at sunset hour. Bathrooms and toilets - when it comes to bathrooms and cleanliness I am more than fussy – I am paranoid…. and believe me these are squeaky clean and I feel so reassured. The bathrooms are so-oo very comfortable, not crammed at all and I’ve simply enjoyed my baths soaking for an hour or two.
The hotel is situated in the best part of Malta (which I like) and close to all amenities (which is super).

the room was amazing...I'm very particular about cleanliness and the service met my every expectation. the staff where very friendly and professional. the breakfast was great and contained a great selection. I was only there for 2 nights as I went on a weekend break, but it was very relaxing every step of the way. the only thing that slightly disappointed me was the fact that the pool was very small compared to what I thought it would be. I had in mind a large pool especially considering that other pools atother 5 star hotels were large. the space by the pool is also quite limited in comparison to the size of the hotel. but I very quickly got used to the pool and started enjoying it just the same. so all in all, a great experience and I would stay there again without a second thought.

Me and my three best friends stayed here in June and we all agreed it was our best girls holiday (we go away every year). The hotel is lovely and clean and the location is perfect. It is quiet and peaceful but only a short walk to the strip where the nightlife is booming.

Ours room were great, can't fault them and we were put in two joining rooms which was really nice. The food is good, we only had breakfast in the main restaurant but there is a huge selection.

The rooftop pool is lovely and the adjoining bar does nice snacks/lunches, burgers etc and they serve you round the pool which is very relaxing! My only fault would be there could be more beds as these fill up quickly although we managed to get four beds at around 10am each morning.

The spa is great, we all had the full body massage which is well worth the 80 euros we paid! Woman on reception was quiet rude and stuck up but apart from her all the staff were very friendly.

I would definitely reccomend this hotel, its a bargain (we paid £450 with flights) and is perfect for anyone looking to have a great time in Malta!

I was expecting great things. First impressions were good - fast check-in, lovely room overlooking Balluta Bay. It stopped there i'm afraid! The service was appallingly slow; the food was just as appalling at the roof top bar, the breakfast was the most disappointing I have had anywhere, including 3 and 4 star hotels. I would say our room wasn't cleaned as thoroughly as it could have been; no mattress protectors on the beds, so very unhygienic in my opinion. Also only 4 lifts for such a large hotel, so consequently spent a long time, waiting and waiting. The roof-top pool looked murky and was very, very small for such a large hotel. Plus points: very nice spa, and excellent concierge, fantastic location.

Apart from the fact that the hotel was EXTRA CLEAN and TIDY, the management and staff were very welcoming. The food was excellent in that it catered for health concious people. The sea-view was marvellous and at night we could here the relaxing music from other nearby restaurants, while dining at the terrace.

Moreover, I guess that Le Meridien has the best SPA and indoor pool in Malta.

I definately recommend this hotel!

Ok, the location of this hotel is very good, and the rooms are also great.
It’s a good business hotel, for me, it really wasn’t what I had hoped for. My idea of sipping cocktails by a relaxing rooftop swimming pool couldn’t have been further from the reality.

At one point there were over 50 people including kids with water pistols cramped into this tiny paddling pool.
There was no way to get a sun lounger unless you were up before 8am, and even at the quieter points at lunch time, the old towel on the lounger trick was in full flow.

Only 1 member of staff served the whole area; so basically no service there at all.

The Rooftop bar was awful,a and served very basic Butlins Style food.

I was really disappointed that I booked this hotel, and I didn’t really enjoy my long weekend and it cost me over £1100 for 2….

Not the Meridian you might expect.
