This was our second year to the MBH. Location is beautiful, beach lovely private snorkelling area.All rooms have sea view, you never get tired of looking at it.
The people are all very welcoming, hence why we returned again. All inclusive is value for money when travelling as a family. Place is very out of the way so it is a bit disappointing that there isn't really any entertainment in the evening, only a man with his electric piano singing from 8 - 10pm.
Biggest problem we had this year was that due to the dining room getting a lick of paint and new tables and chairs the manager had imposed a dress code of long trousers for the men. We did not find this out until Weds evening when going in to dinner and being refused. This resulted in a very heated debate with duty manager. My husband advised that there were ladies going into the resturant with the cheeks of there butts hanging out but he could not wear smart cargo shorts. My son did not have a pair of trousers with him what 18 year old would bring long trousers? So the duty manager offered to lend him a pair of the waiters. he brought them out they were 38inch waist and 28 inch leg, my son has a 32 inch waist and is 6 foot 4. his own smart shorts were longer so he was not allowed to have them. My husband advised him he was going upstairs to put on a skirt as he didn't have trousers, the managers reply was you will not be allowed in you are not a woman. My husband did put on a skirt and was let in to the restaurant to dine as he had pointed out to the manager we are all in the EU and discrimination of any kind is not allowed.My son poor thing had to wear my jeggings for an hour a day to get his food.
Food on the whole very good always something to eat. My son fussiest eater in the world managed to get them to cook him chicken and chips nearly every evening. Place although advertised as 4 star compared with rest of the world it would be lucky to get 2-3 stars. Place is very dated in desperate need of a real spruce up. Had real problem with bees an wasps again this year just down to people not clearing away sticky cups etc.
We hired car from reception as much cheaper than Thomson direct, so many places to see, well worth a visit.
Would definitely go back, if you are going to book, just understand that Malta has a very relaxed pace of life.
The Blue lagoon is a must to visit book with the on site watersports as the trip advertised in the Hotel is too long and you only get 1 hour at the Blue lagoon made that mistake last year.
