We chose Hotel Juliani located in Spinola Bay as it was ideally located for us.

Spinola Bay has lots to offer from bars, restaurants and local amenities. It's a great place to spend a few hours eating and relaxing at one of the waterside restaurants.

The traffic is an issue as it seems to be a busy route to and from Sillema. If you do not want to walk, buses can be caught very easily. If you are staying for a few days opt for the weekly bus ticket. Great value at only €6.50.

I agree with a lot of the previous reviews. It's a pretty place, plenty of restaurants and some bars and pubs. It's a lovely walk along the prom to Sliema and you can also walk quite easily to St. George's Bay. However......... When I was there earlier this month there were a few building sites (one right next door to the apartment I stayed in. I saw others next to other apartment blocks and another next to 2 of the small number of hotels around the Bay.) There are a number of cranes that currently spoil the skyline and Maltese building regulations permit construction work from 7am to 4pm. If you are unlucky enough to be staying near one of these sites in the next few months you will find the noise to be very intrusive from a very early hour. It's a shame because I actually liked the area and without the current building sites would have given a higher rating.

One of our favourite places on Malta, we stay around this bay as it is such a beautiful setting, lovely prom walks to Sliema, spolit for choice with restaurants. Buses to all over the island so a great central place to stay

a pleasant bay, with boats bobbing in the water and restaurants overlooking it, not a destination but nice enough!

Spinola Bay is colourful and cute with many classy restaurants! This is the place to find a great fresh fish meal or even to take some classic photos of this famous Maltese bay.
