“beautiful and classy”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

Amazing restaurants, great vistas. Very reasonably priced food and wine everywhere. Signage could be better, we struggled to find our way and know if we had arrived there or not...

“One of the best spots on the island”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

Spinola Bay is the perfect place to stay when visiting Malta. There is plenty of accommodation to suit all tastes around this small scenic harbour from backpackers to upmarket hotels and all level of appartments. There is also an abundance of all types of eateries from MacDonalds to gourmet restaurants. There is also plenty of nightlife in the local bars and pubs and in the nearby pubs and clubs of Paceville if that is what you want. The public busses servicing the local area are excellent and you can get wherever you want to go, including tours around Malta and accross to Gozo Island with little difficulty. An excellent place to stay when visiting Malta.

“Take a walk down the front”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

When i visit St.Julians I have to go to spinola bay. With some great little bars and resaturants but not only that the views and smells of the bay always last as a memory. Been coming to malta on and off for 20 years with childhood memories I love walking down the front of the bay where the old ship yard used to be looking over the many boats resting. Perfect walk after a evening meal when the sun is setting.

“Family time”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

Lovely to see families enjoying the bay. There is no beach by the Hotel but that did not stop families from swimming in the bay or sitting on the rocks. Lots of little boats in the harbor and further out in the bay some nice looking boats anchored. Some jelly fish but the water is so clear you can see all the tiny fish swimming about. As you further round the bay, they are playing water polo, or generally swimming in the sea, where there are areas cordoned off for safety.
