Never been to Malta before, chose this all-inclusive following Trip adviser research. It was absolutely fine, but not as fantastic as described. Room was spacious- we book a juinor suite but got a family room so had two extra beds rather than seating area, but spacious, clean, bright and in reasonable decorative order. Bathroom fine, good hot shower which is always a bonus. Bar was fine, good selection of cocktails, but only had lager. I cannot drink lager so was hoping they served cider, but unfortunately not so had to drink vodka and tonic. Buffet was ok had a large selection, none of which was outstanding, but was all edible. I think a week of buffet only food would drive you mad though, as lunch and dinner options seem suspiciously similar. Breakfast was fine but any hotel should be able to lay on breakfast. We managed to book the oriental buffet one night, which was ok, but basic. We thought we had been very lucky to book the Vista Italian buffet/restaurant on another night as it seemed permanently fully booked when we inquired, but only 12 out of about 30 tables were occupied on the night we ate there?? Limited food choice for all-inclusive guests in the Vista Restaurant - from the link on the hotel's own website it looks like there is a huge selection of main course dishes on offer, in reality there are only four
A few comments about Malta - all the drivers are crazy, suicidal or ignorant. No-one stops, their sole aim in life seems to be to get ahead of the car in front which is done by driving as fast as possible, tail gate the driver in front then overtake them no matter the road conditions or other traffic on the road all whilst using a mobile phone, and that's just the transfer service to/from the airport (William's Garage) or the shuttle service to/from the hotel to get to the start of the hop-on/hop-off bus sightseeing tour. Now the bus drivers on hop-on/hop-off bus tours are very good, how they manouvere a double decker bus through some of the areas they did without hitting anything is amazing. One criticism though is although they are all friendly and helpful they all give a different answer to the same question??
I had considered hiring a car, but no way after being a passenger, and witnessing other road users
Never to to Malta before, probably never will again.
