Modern hotel with all the facilities overlooking the best beach on Malta. It's relatively isolated position makes it a great base as the views across the bay are beautiful and uninterrupted. In saying that the hotel has four restaurants plus there are two just on the bay so there are plenty of eating choices. There is also a bus top outside the hotel making it very easy and cheap (each journey is around £1.30) to get around the island and visit all the sights: We particularly enjoyed Medina, Valletta and Marsaloxx. Note however, that apart from Valletta all the buses return around 8pm so if you want to eat out in say Mellieha say, you will need to get a taxi back (about 15 euro).
The food and drink at the hotel is pretty pricey (4 euro for a large diet coke at the pool!) so I would recommend the one bed suites which have a small kitchen. We made our own breakfast and lunch if we were staying in for the day and stocked up with beers, wine and soft drinks from the supermarket. There is a small supermarket on site although again this is is considerably more expensive than taking a trip in to Bugibba or Mellieha to visit one of the larger island supermarkets. Whatever, room you book, it is well worth the investment of a seaview room. The ones looking out to the country side are the real poor relations although they are the same inside. Our one bed suite was very spacious with separate bedroom and large bathroom with Jack and Jill sinks. Tea, coffee and milk is provided as well as mini toiletries and replenished every day.
The hotel has a reasonable gym, a very nice spa with a wide range of treatments and both large indoor and outdoor pools with comfortable views and with the latter views over the sea.
We really enjoyed our stay and was impressed with the amount of things to do and see in Malta. I wouldn't, however, really rate this hotel as a five star. The service was rather hit and miss. It's very nice but definitely a four star.
