The hotel is situated to the North of Malta and is orientated almost North South with the pool situated to the South. The sun shines into the pool area all day from 0800 till gone 1700 even in October. There are more than ample sunbeds and parasols available. The new extension is completed but the top floor is not available to Hotel guests as these much larger rooms will eventually be sold. No decision as to their format or on what basis they will be sold has yet been taken. Currently building work is in progress to build a ground water collection and pumping station, this as a result of flooding in September. Noise is minimal and the work should be completed soon.
Reception Staff are all extremely helpful and this area is manned 24 hours a day.
Rooms Those that are part of the old hotel have all been refitted to a high standard with ample clothes storage, a safe and inbuilt tea and coffee making facilities. A digital TV provides a good choice of channels. The beds are extremely large and comfortable. The air conditioning is excellent with in room units that can be easily controlled. They are also very quite. The bathroom contains a bath with two shower heads, toilet and sink. Our room had a large balcony overlooking the sea. It was furnished with a table, two chairs and two sunbeds. Most rooms have smaller balconies and it is therefore worth paying extra for the sea view.
Restaurants, There are several restaurants with the main restaurant at reception level. This is air conditioned and can be very busy at times. Food was very good with lots of choice but at times this can be over cooked, especially the vegetables. Two more, Pizza and Jungle Restaurants are situated on a lower level but do not appear to be fully utilised. Two external Restaurants Mayo and Mexico can be booked. These are situated across and a couple of yards up the road from the Hotel. There is a standard all inclusive menu or discounted main menu. Reviews were varied during our visit, some not too complimentary. The pool restaurant serves burger/pizza type quick food which is available all day once breakfast is complete. Wine, beer, soft drinks, coffee, tea and water are available in all. Bookings are taken at breakfast for the Oriental Restaurant adjacent to the main restaurant where food with an Eastern slant can be enjoyed.
Bars During the day there are two bars open from 1000, one inside and one outside at the South end of the Pool. The dome bar opens in the evening where the entertainment is conducted, this bar and the inside bar close at 2300. A further bar called Mariners Bar is situated below the main restaurant but it is currently closed for refurbishment.
Facilities The large outdoor pool is well maintained and is a pleasure to swim in. A smaller indoor pool is also available reputably heated but felt colder than the main pool at times. Also in this area is a Jacuzzi, kept extremely busy by all and sundry.
In the basement is a Spa area which is well run by the staff, massage, hairdressing etc are available at a cost. There is a well stocked gymnasium, a large Steam Room and a Sauna, these are free to guests and are kept clean and tidy with lockers available for a refundable fee. Adjacent to the Jungle Restaurant are four bowling lanes again free to guests and in the same area are four pay Pool tables. Both these facilities require attention/maintenance. Two of the pool tables were torn and only one white could be found.
Staff This is a well managed Hotel with a happy staff, public areas are kept clean and tidy whilst bars and restaurant staff are all very obliging. Many thanks to you all for making our stay so pleasant. We could not fault room servicing and a small in room problem was quickly resolved.
We will definitely return again.
