“Overall a good week at the Ramla Bay.”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

First time in Malta. Travelled 15th to 22nd May 2014
Location of the Hotel somewhat remote, however, we thought it was excellent. Situated on a beautiful little bay with sun loungers overlooking the Ocean. The hotel facilities were very good. Three soon to be four pools including an indoor spa complex . Only two hotels situated around this unique little bay so no worries about the crowds. Small but tidy little beach area, ideal for children. We found the Maltese people extremely friendly and the Hotel staff were no exception. Nothing seemed too much trouble. We had a little issue with the room (see tip) which was dealt with in a professional and courteous manner and although we declined, we were offered a room exchange. Special mention here for John on reception who offered the above without hesitation and made sure we were completely happy with the eventual resolution. Well Done!! Further mention for Maria housekeeping, who was also extremely accommodating and concerned that things were resolved to our satisfaction.
We were B&B and found the breakfast to be of acceptable quality. Little more fresh fruit would have been nice but overall good food, plentiful and replenished right up to the cut off time of 10am. The dining room was clean but the decor a little bland. We felt the use of a few fresh flowers around the food stations would do much to enhance the overall appearance.
We are very independent so hired a car. Do not get a jeep, the roads are poor, think suspension and comfort. If you like to explore in our opinion a car is essential. The Hotel is on the top of the island, we felt that the car gave us the best of all worlds? That said there is a Bus stop within 5-10 minutes walk, buses take you all over the island. By car could reach Valletta in about 30mins. Top to bottom of Island about an hour. If your sunbathers and like chilling out this place is also ideal.
Good holiday and would use this Hotel again if we return to the Island.

Room Tip: Room 75 spacious, quiet, no view as such but privacy better than most. Downside, hot water pipes r...

As soon as we stepped through the doors we were welcomed with a lovely smile and greeting from the receptionist. Our room was kept very clean and the food was excellent, puddings to die for, they fed and watered us from 7.30 in the morning to 11.00 at night, all the staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is remote and for us this was brilliant with no noisy night life. Mellieha is only a few minutes away should you decide to have a change of scenary.
The only down side was that we paid for a panoramic view and were expecting to see the whole of the bay from our balcony, we were overlooking the carpark and yes we could see the sea, I would say this was the only disappointing thing. We would definitely recommend this hotel to friends and family, and it would be a place we would stay again and next time we would ask for a room with a view of Gozo.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of Gozo.

Lovely clean hotel although a little too remote. Entertainment was a little poor. Food was very good except the fish always full of bones and extremely over done. Unfortunately it was far too windy for us.

I visited Ramla Bay Resort in April. It was my first visit to Malta so did not know what to expect. I was really impressed with the hotel. The staff were very helpful. The food was excellent, the service excellent, the room cleaned to an excellent standard. I hired a car from the hotel and yet again very easy, an excellent service. I travelled around Malta which is a must, it is a fabulous place and easy to get around although travel in a decent car as the roads are a little dodgy! my old jeep bounced across the island! Gozo was worth a visit and the blue lagoon on comino a must, a boat from the hotel beach takes you straight there. The atmosphere at the hotel is friendly and relaxing. I thoroughly enjoyed this holiday and will return to the Ramla bay resort. Thanks for a great time.

Room Tip: A room with the sea view perfect. a high level better.

We went with my family to Ramla for one week.
The location was great. Beaches are close to us. We hire a car too. We also walk to gozo which was beautiful.
The buffet was different and very good every day. We had breakfast outside in the terrazza.
Service was very accordial and friendly.
Area for sunbathing very big. With beach and pools.
We come again. Well done Ramla.

My wife and I went to Ramla Bay for our honeymoon. We wanted somewhere quite away from the night clubs and bustle but also close enough to access areas when we wanted. Ramla Bay Hotel is that perfect combination.

We went for a week in May and the weather varied from a barmy 28 to a chilly 18 with winds from a gentle breeze to 25 mph. But don't let that put you off - this was perfect for when it is chilly you can do the tours and visit the museums but when it is hot you can sunbath and relax.

We went half board and it has to be said the room was cavernous, the facilities excellent and the food was spot on. It is a buffet style service and there is something for everyone and it changes every night. The staff are so friendly and nothing is a problem.

If I could change one thing it would be ..... the beach.... it is small and not far from the shore is the moorings for the boats but just a short bus trip (every 30 mins) and you are in St Pauls which has a lovely beach.

Transport is by public transport and it is very cheap and good. At Ramla Bay you are t the start of the trips so the buses are empty but by the time you get to the city they are quite full.

Room Tip: When you get to the airport you have to look for the person who is transporting you to the hotel - d...
