We arrived on the 17th of August for 8 days. We were checked in swiftly and were given our directions to our sea view room. The room was spacious and had a great view of the sea. We were on the third floor. My wife, myself and our 2 year old daughter had enough space and also two bathrooms. The room was spotless and the air conditioning worked very well, perhaps the best I have ever used considering the weather outside was around 38 degrees.
Being vegetarian we were a little apprehensive about the food but overall it was ok for the stay we had. Any longer and we would have struggled as the food can get repetitive. We struggled a couple of days with choice however spoke to Steve the chef who soon put this right - very accommodating.
Drinks are plenty but not fresh, the juices taste terrible and the fizzy drinks and cocktails are very watered down, however not something that should put you off.
Desserts, too many to mention and they were always fresh and being replenished.
We spent most of our time by the poolside and did not really venture out too much from the hotel. There were ample beach loungers and we never struggled to get three together.
Entertainment by the pool side included wate polo, volleyball and water aerobics. A special mention to Andrea who was a great member of the animation team as well as michala.
Entertainment in the evening we could not have survived without, it gave our daughter something to look forward too and kept her occupied. As for the adults, if you are expecting some broadway type show, this is not what you will get. However the animation team do a very good job entertaining the guests.
There are a lot of flies and wasps but this is really brought on by people leaving the food and drinks by the poolside after they have finished and not returning back to the restaurant.
Wifi is amazing, almost better than what I have in the uk and it was great for my phone and iPad.
Tv channels not that great.
No egg station, so don't expect omelettes of your choice - perhaps an improvement to come soon.
We ate the the jungle/la vista three times in our stay. The food is good however the portions are massive. You can also order from their main menus and get 50% of the bill for being hotel guests.
Overall for our first visit to seabank and Malta we were satisfied and would come back again.
We had no problems whilst we were there and I can be a fussy customer.
If you are hesitating, don't, the location is great, the food is plenty, fresh but repetitive (may not be for a meat eater), entertainment is great for a young family, there are plenty of pools and the place is always kept clean.
Take a chance, you will really not regret it.
