We have just returned from a week, half-board.I thought we had made a mistake going to Malta in December but it turned out to be a very good holiday, in no small part because of the hotel. The room was fine and the food was excellent.The pool area can't be faulted altgough i'm not sure how it would accommodate everyone in the height of season.
Most of the staff were courteous, polite, friendly and helpful.( Lovely room maid who is about to retire.Hope she enjoys her retirement.) I read another's review suggesting that the bar staff were less than friendly and although we only used the bar a few tines we did find on one occasion that one barman treated us as if we had burgled his house.He proceeded to deliberately overfill another guest's coffee so that it filled the saucer as well.He then gave us murderous looks as he collected the cups.Can only think that he either doesn't like his job or doesn't like Brits: whichever, management may like to send him on a customer relations course as he lets the hotel down badly. Leaving this particular individual out of the equation, I would not hesitate to recommend the hotel.
The hotel is not situated in the town but a couple of miles outside. However, there are frequent and cheap buses that will get you there in minutes and the day pass at 2.6 euros is a bargain as you can visit any or all parts of the island on it.
If you need to buy food or drinks then it is best to take the bus into Mellieha and visit one of the mini markets near the church. A tip - with apologies to the Maltese- their red wines leave much to be desired but decent Chilean reds are on sale for less than 5 euros in the Mellieha minimarket opposite the HSBC.If you go to Valetta, expect to find a city worth visiting but don't expect to find a supermarket there- there isn't one.
Malta is a great place for a holiday and the Mellieha Bay must be one of the best hotels. I read a very critical review earlier and can't believe that they were guests in the same place nor what they would expect that was better.
