“This place is simply wonderful!”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

It was our first trip to Malta and didn't really know what to expect. We purposely chose this resort as it was described as a quieter part of the Island. The hotel was welcoming, clean and friendly. The food was a mix to suit all tastes. I enjoyed all my meals. The two things that really made the experience of our visit to Malta so special were; the views from the hotel are beautiful, you can see Gozo, Comino and the local gem of a beach Paradise bay. And, we must give a special mention to the entertainment team. The four members of 'Animation' were the friendliest bunch of fun people we met during our stay. Just great!
Thinking about going? You won't regret it! :)

In need of relaxation we stayed at the Paradise Bay Resort on a half board Plus basis. We really enjoyed our stay - our room (407) overlooked the bay and was spacious, clean and very well maintained. We found all the staff to be friendly and helpful - particularly Katya and the other reception team. We found the bar prices quite competitive and a nice touch was that the fridge in our room could be filled at prices cheaper than at the bar (with a minimum spend of 12€). The buffet style food was varied, tasty , warm and replenished constantly. The entertainment staff were new to the job and were very keen to succeed. Luciano in particular was enthusiastic and obviously intends to work hard to offer varied entertainment for all ages as the season progresses. We wish them every success - it was a pleasure to meet them. The hotel is relatively isolated in the north of the island but we found an excellent bus service which - although busy - was an excellent way of seeing this beautiful island. We met many guests in the hotel who returned time after time for the peace and relaxation this excellent hotel offers.

Room Tip: When using public transport buy a one week ticket - only 6.50€ each great value!!

This was my first trip to Malta with two girl friends we shared a tripple room in Paradise Bay Hotel. The hotel is conveniently situated with the ferry to Gozo within walking distance and a bus stop right outside the hotel, the busses give an excellent service and are cheep compared to ours. There isn't really anywhere to walk to from the hotel. We travelled by bus to Valleta and on another occasion to St Pauls Bay. If you were to rate this hotel on the food it would deffinately be a 4* unfortunately the hotel is let down by the bedrooms which are a little tired, the bed linen and the towels should be replaced immediately!!

I thank you for your positive comments and for the information stated. It is true that our Economy rooms are our older rooms and in need of refurbishment, hence this is why we market them at a lesser rate and the rooms do meet so many of our guests needs but I admit they are not for all.

Although this hotel is quite isolated and there are no bars or restaurants nearby, the food in the restaurant is excellent and would highly recommend. The hotel is also right opposite the ferry (2 minute walk) to Gozo and they run every 45 minutes. We spent a lovely day there recently. Also there are 8 local buses that stop right outside the hotel and are very very cheap for a day ticket. The hotel has lovely outdoor and indoor pools and entertainment every day. The entertainment team and brilliant and games can be played and other activities throughout the day. There is also evening entertainment. The hotel is spotlessly clean and the staff are very helpful.

Room Tip: Bay view rooms are much better. the other side of the hotel is a sea view but just of the ferry.

My friend and I had planned to holiday later in the year,but due to circumstances we found ourselves looking for a last minute deal. Our friends told us of a holiday they had booked and we decided to join them at Paradise Resort. Good Choice! The large airy room overlooking the bay was good. It was spoilt by noisy neighbours who we could hear through the adjoining door. We didn't want to loose our lovely room so we didn't complain. We were helped to plan trips around the island by a very helpful lady in the corner of reception and all our needs were met promptly by the staff at reception who were happy to help. The food was nice. The entertainment was good. The bars were well stocked. Corado the bar manager made my friend's special cocktail on the last night that made our holiday complete, but before then I have to say how hardworking and welcoming the 'Animation Team' are. I have been to hotels where the entertainment and activities have been difficult to join in with. Luciano Alvaro Sandra and Marie made us feel welcome, found ways to insure that multilingual groups enjoyed the activities. Well Done!

Room Tip: Stay in the main hotel. Although there is disabled access to all areas some slopes are very steep.

We gave this hotel a chance but were utterly disappointed unfortunately! No life, retirement home (not necessarily nice elderly people i.e. being stared at morning noon and night as we tried to eat discretely), unwashed bed sheets with other people's dirty BROWN stains left for entire holiday on outer sheets, broken bathroom utilities/tiles, filthy balcony chair that was smeared with black dirt even though it was white, hotel in the middle of absolutely NOWHERE, nothing to do hence we went on every excursion and bus going just to get out of the area, unhelpful brash staff, 1 shop in the entire area which was boring and underwhelming to say the least, mediocre tasting food which left a lot to be desired. GO TO ST. JULIANS BAY or anywhere else. This is not a place for anyone who's heart is still beating! You've been warned!

I thank you for inform us of this less than satisfactory concept of the bed sheets and other aspects, the bed linen are outsourced to a laundry and fortunately we do not normally have any problem with their cleanliness. It is unfortunate that you did not bring your comments tour attention whilst you were in house for us to rectify. It is true that for some guests who wish the night life of young people in discos etc. then we are not that establishment to stay in, yes St.Julian’s is the night life centre until 5am.

I thank you for your positive response, the hotels animation has only just started this month and for them to succeed they need the guest participation to which the cliental now changes and we have more families staying with us which normally ensures the success of the animation team..
