I want to start this review by stating that this hotel is really good value. From the reviews we read before booking, it seems as other reveiwers might have had expected a five star luxury resort, which it isn't. It did, however, rank as one of our favourite hotels during a multiple stop tour of Malta and Gozo. The location is superb, right next to the cliffs with a beach right of the hotel grounds. It's roughly a 3 km hike to Mellieha, but you have a couple of different options if you want to stay close to the hotel but still eat out. The little hotel convenience store seemed to have pretty good prices too, and we found everything we were looking.
As for the rooms, we paid a little extra to get a sea view room. It was definitely worth it. We had a huge balcony overlooking Gozo, Comino and the sea. There were some details to the rooms that could have been fixed pretty easily, which would have made it feel even better. As an example, the bathroom door in our room was locked with a litte hatch, rather than a regular lock. Still, it was very spacious, very clean and we slept really well in the beds.
The service was really good, we were greated with smiles and the hotel staff helped us alot with directions etc. We were also amazed to hear that it had a 94% occupancy rate whilst we were visiting, we never once had to wait for food and we had no problems finding chairs around the pool or cliff area.
All in all, both my girlfriend and I would definitely recommend this place if your either travelling as a familly (especially with children) or if you want to just want to get away for a bit.
