We stayed at the Seabanks hotel in June 2014 and this was our first visit to Malta. We booked two rooms as we holidayed with our adult daughter. On arrival we were greeted by friendly reception staff who advised our rooms were being inspected and invited us to go for lunch in the adjacent dining room, while final checks were made.
Both rooms were adjacent to each other on the 4th floor and overlooked the rear of the hotel. Both rooms were excellent and very clean. They had a fridge and free safe as well as tea/coffee facilities. The rooms were kept spotless during our stay.
Meals were available in the main dining room, or alternatively you could book a meal in any one of the four additional speciality restaurants, and could do this free of any additional charges and as often as you wished provided tables were available. These restaurants consisted of an Asian Restaurant, Brazilian, Italian and Mediteranean. We tied all but the Mediterranean and all were superb. We even went to the Brazilian one twice.
Food in the main restaurant was good overall but with an over reliance on lamb chops which featured at just about every meal except breakfast. As this is an all inclusive hotel it was nice to have a glass of wine or beer with your meal. We never saw an instances of over indulgence which can occur at some all inclusive hotels.
The hotel had two pools, one for families and an adult only area with its own pool. Their was always enough sun beds at any time of day so this was never a problem.
Entertainment was via an entertainments team who worked tirelessly to put on activites and shows each day. Some were good, some not so good.
It was easy to get around Malta as a bus stop was outside the hotel for both directions and bus pass for a whole week was only 6 Euros 50. Marvellous value, but the buses were always rammed, which is not surprising at those prices.
The hotel had two bars - one in the entertainment centre and the other facing the front. Both were very good and staff were always polite but busy.
We had an unfortunate incident in the hotel during our stay caused by lack of parental controls of two German children, however this was dealt with by the hotel management.
We would definitely go back to Malta and from our experience we would certainly stay at this hotel again.
