We stayed at the Mellieha Bay Hotel for a week in June. We were a little apprehensive as had read some bad reviews but were greeted by friendly and efficient staff who directed us to our room. The room was basic but modern, very clean and perfectly liveable, with large TV but very few channels, comfy beds, good shower and an excellent view. The air con was great and the room was always nice and cool which is good as heat was high 30s. The only thing missing was tea and coffee making facilities which would have been greatly appreciated. View was lovely though over the gardens and the bay.
The food was good but not great. There was a lots of it and lots of choice which we could not fault. Some dishes were a little salty but otherwise there was always something I liked. Our drinks order was always taken and delivered quickly. I would point out that this is not 4 star dining - if you want this you would have to go elsewhere.
One of the days we went scuba-diving through the company at the hotel who were excellent and we would highly recommend this! They use the indoor pool to practise and talk you through it and then take you to the dive site which was really great.
We spent very little time at the hotel as we wanted to explore the island and I think this was a good hotel to have as a base but would not want to spend our whole time there. It is a great location - close to Gozo but with excellent bus links to the other parts of the island. It is tucked out of the way of the village which is nice and quiet but it is a good 40 minute walk up a hill to get to the village - be warned!
One thing to note - we were late leavers so had to check out of our room several hours before we left. We were told by the rep that the hotel offered a room for showering etc. for half an hour in the evening if you wanted - we took this option but found that whereas our room had been very modern others were not and were definitely not 4 star, therefore would strongly recommend that when booking you request one of the recently refurbished rooms.
We had no complaints about the hotel, it was a great base and we had a lovely holiday with no problems at all. Some people will choose to complain but we felt that we were there to visit Malta and not to spend all our time at the hotel and that's what we did. Malta is a lovely place, there is so much to do and so much history so the place is definitely a must-visit!
