We stayed for a week at the Seabank in June. Weather and location were excellent. We have stayed in several AI resorts across Europe and Carribean and this was the best so far.
My husband has coeliac disease and has to have a very strict gluten free diet or becomes very ill. I had corresponded via email with the hotel prior to our arrival, and arranged to meet the executive chef Stephen Gatt when we arrived. Stephen was the most amazingly helpful and professional person we have every dealt with, he and his staff, made this condition very manageable and catered for us amazingly. On many occasions even going so far as to provide seperately prepared meals, such as gluten free pizza and an amazing lamb dish. In the oriental restaurant a full seperate meal was prepared to avoid the soy sauce, which is usually a stumbling block for coeliacs to enable us to eat there. At all times we were made to feel welcome and that catering for this diet was not an issue or problem. Simon and Salome in particular were really wonderful. We cannot recommend their team highly enough to anyone requring a specialist diet and will be recommending them to the UK Coeliac society. As a non coeliac the other food was also amazing, especailly in the main buffett restaurant, which can sometimes be the let down in other hotels. Everything was fresh and imaginative and of the highest quality.
The staff throughout were excellent, friendly and knowledgeable and always felt that nothing was too much trouble. The Manager shoud feel very proud of their team whose service at all times was exemplary. Even when we arrived in the ealrly hours were welcomed with smiles and assistance and it constantly felt like a small family run hotel were everyone really wants you to return and have a great time.
Rooms, pool, bars and all facilities were clean, well maintained and stylish. As others have mentioned the animation team work hard and are constantly charming. At weekends local people use the facilities and yes this makes it a bit busier but I thought it was lovely to see a resort that is a valued part of the community and can be enjoyed by locals as well as overseas visitors.
The surrounding area was beautiful, great beach, easy bus routes just across the road and plenty to do. A charming small town at the top of the hill and we found Malta a beautiful, fascinating and very welcoming island.
Our only small gripe was there were a lot of children in the hotel and there was nowhere you could get away from them. If there could be some adult only areas in the dining room and the outside area of the bar we would have really appreciated this and would be more likely to return.
We would not hesitate to highly recommend this hotel and would like to thank them for an excellent holiday. We really hope they continue to be successful as they thoroughly deserve it. Well done Seabank.
