“We are going back.”
Reviewed 13 March 2011

We have been coming to Mellieha Bay Hotel since 1998. I sometimes wonder what people want. We have been back every year bar two since then. I have never seen or heard anybody else talk about dirty bedding. The hotel might seem tired but how long do you spend inside on your holiday anyway? The staff are so helpful and polite. We used to bring our daughter when she was younger and the fact it is such a safe place bought us back time after time.
The food is very good with plenty of choice in fact I'm worried this year as it's all inclusive I will have to pack some elasticated waisted skirts.
The down side , 2 weeks is not enough.

The hotel is VERY old and needs renovation ASAP. Very disappointed from the first minute we stepped into the room. The sheets and the covers of the beds where old and very dirty. The room had a very bad smell of cigarette every time we switched on the AC. We paid 90€ per day. We've stayed in a lot better hotels with a lot less money. Also, I don't understand why they claim it is a 4-star hotel. Isn't there a tourism ministry to check hotels like this?
I have to admit though, that the personnel was very helpful and polite.
Also, the location of the hotel is good and quiet, but they seriously have to reconsider renovation.

We have booked this hotel for our 2 nights stay 24th to 26th Dec 2010.
With travel Republic something that i have done for the last two years so for myself and for friends at my club.
We can say we had a lovely two nights stay at this nice hotel....The Hotel staff so friendly and rooms very clean...Rooms with a balcony facing the nice Mellieha Bay and the village of Mellieha...Food was nice.....About hotel we don't have one single complain....
Our only complain was that we arrived we was told that we wanted to pay a suppliment of 33 euros as on that night they had only the xmas eve dinner.After i complained and insisted that i have booked two nights half board with travel republic i had to pay not to ruin our stay this even after the receptionist done all she can to settle this matter with agents.
After our stay when we went home i done my complain with TR .Though they doing their best and i have already got two letter from them i am still waiting a reply and the refund of the supplement money that i have paid..We feels that this was a rip-off and some somewhere have cheated.....I am patently waiting but till then i have stopped with my bookings with TR.....Hope this matter will be settled as soon as possible so this misunderstanding will be solved.
Regards

lovely setting! the hotel is tired, the beds are b&q pasting tables..that said, the food is first rate! all the staff are polite and courteous, the lift is faster than parachuting, theres more chemicals in the pool than iggy pops blood,the thompson holiday rep was brilliant apart from mistaking me for a thunderbirds character, it happens....overall a pleasing stay! i just feel people would be happier if it was a 3 star... better to be a good 3 star hotel than a low quality tired 4 star.....met some good friends there who showed me some new drinks... a new fangled cocktail called a sprowston.... 1 large vodka, topped up with lungo liquer, topped with a coke..... very nice!!!!!!

We returned to the Mellieha Bay Hotel for a Christmas break having stayed there in May 2010. This time I booked directly with the hotel rather than going through Thomson (and saved LOADS of money in the process), on a half board basis (full board on Christmas day).

The hotel is great for what we want, it's in a quiet spot on the island, the food is great with a good selection each night. The bar brices are reasonable (€3.5/ping for beer which by hotel standards is cheap) and the staff are helpful & friendly.

Quite a few "older" couples staying here, but good for families with young children too (indoor pool saw a lot of use during our break).

The rooms are, as a lot of folks state, a little dated, but they were warm & clean. Ok so the TV isn't a state of the art flat screen but why bother going all the way to Malta if all you are going to do is sit indoors & watch the news ?!

We stayed here for a week in January 2011 and were nervous about some of the previous negative reviews but were greatly impressed. Yes the hotel is tired in places but is at present being refurbished, the hotel was spotlessly clean, the staff very friendly and helpful. We stayed on an all inclusive basis and were not disappointed the food was plentiful with many choices of hot and cold options. the indoor pool was a delight. the resort was quiet which suited us and we will return. George of course is a legend.

Recently returned to Mllieha Bay Hotel after some years. Hotel still nice if a litttle tired but the staff food and cleanliness were excellent. It certainly needs updating but this does not destract from the lovely quiet location and the weather was an added bonus. I will certainly go back again. The New Year's eve dinner was superb as was the New Year's day lunch and myself and friends had good time and a lovely break from the cold of England,
