This is not a hotel, a location, or the time of year we would usually choose to holiday ourselves and were staying at this hotel for a family wedding. We prefer city locations with lots to see/do within walking distance and would not go away in main season when the weather is so hot!
The room was the average large hotel style, a bit dated and we noticed a room at the end of our corridor was being renovated so assume the block (D) was gradually being refurbished. The room was very clean as was the bathroom, good wide beds and the views were amazing, (from second floor). There are no spare plug sockets so you need to unplug the hairdryer or the fridge to plug in chargers is a fridge in the room which wasn't very cold but adequate to put bottles of water in. Quite a long walk to the main part of the hotel but there is a small lift. The main part of the hotel is lovely, spacious, clean and comfortable. Breakfast, (buffet style), is excellent with plenty of choice but recommend you take your own teabags if you are a tea drinker! Lunch and dinner are also good with plenty of choices. On all inclusive we tried the wine with dinner, white is either sweet or dry, rose is dry, we didn't have the red. Alcohol - on all inclusive you only get local brands and our first drinks of gin and tonic and brandy and coke were our last - awful! We proceeded to pay for drinks to get the branded spirits. Unless you are paying you will need to ask for ice in your drink - at the bar, (snack bar), inside the hotel! Its a pity that bar staff appear to want to ration ice and treat all inclusive customer differently, as if they think we might abuse something that's free rather than having paid for it in advance! All the staff are lovely and friendly and very helpful. The wedding was perfect, really magical and the hotel is obviously very experienced at these occasions, we'd definitely recommend this hotel to anyone planning to marry in Malta. The area immediately around the hotel has nothing to offer except the beach, the local town is a good walk away or a short taxi ride, but there is a fabulous restaurant there call the Commando. There are plenty of excursions on the island including swimming with Dolphins, boat trips etc., and these can be booked from the hotel.
Overall we had a good stay and I'd certainly recommend this hotel for families. We visited Valetta whilst there and, whilst we're planning to return to Malta, we''' probably stay in the city next time.
