“We love it...amazing...as always!”
Reviewed 24 July 2013

There isn't enough space to describe the wonderful the staff and the beautiful hotel.The staff cannot do enough to help everyone, they are all so friendly and professional. The grounds and pools are so well cared for, food and drinks are truly amazing, they must employ some of the best chefs in Malta. You have to visit Philip for a cocktail demonstration, he has such a passion for his work and his cocktails are unbelievable! The pools,the private beach, free sun beds and parasols, free clean pool/ beach towels available every day, the indoor pool and gym, spa and hairdressers all are outstanding. Our rooms had a sea view that was breath taking but the country view is equally charming especially at sun set. The rooms are luxurious and the housekeeping team work so hard day and night to maintain the highest standards. Toiletries and tea and coffee provided every day. Henri the concierge greeted us with a glass of wine on arrival, what an amazing, charming gentleman !
Corinne was so nice to talk to and helped us book trips out around Malta, giving us lots of information.Our lovely friend Linda looked after us all week and we cannot thank her enough.
We are so lucky to have timeshare at the hotel and cannot wait to return every year. Do not be put off by the negative press some timeshare gets, this is the best, the team are so professional and love their work and it shows. Thank you all so much x

Room Tip: Every room we have stayed in has been wonderful, the country views are just as beautiful as the sea...

Spent a fantastic relaxing week with my family at the Radisson Blu Resort & Spa. The service and hospitality was outstanding, the room and grounds are well maintained and clean. The pool area is wonderful especially after sunset. I would highly recommend to my family and friends. Will be heading back for another week in autumn. Thanks to all the highly motivated friendly staff for making our stay a memorable one that will not be forgotten soon.
THANK YOU

Room Tip: South face rooms have a lovely biew of the pool area and the astonishing Golden Sands Day

Just returned from another relaxing holiday at Golden Sands in Malta. We are never disappointed with this hotel although we did have a few problems with the unit on arrival, they were rectified almost immediately. Our beautiful rooms were above the outdoor pool overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. Food is excellent, we can highly recommend the breakfast with food galore on offer. Extremely friendly staff bar none, anything you need just ask. This is 5* treatment every inch of the way from the moment you walk though the doors. The resort is a little remote which actually suits us fine but, with an excellent bus service practically on the doorstep you can explore the whole of the Island. The only "gripe" we have is the entertainment in the Mokkar Bar. Until a couple of years ago the entertainment was excellent, but now it consists of someone sitting on a stool, playing an instrument while singing but without any interaction with the audience.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view its well worth it.

This is our second visit to the Radisson Golden Sands and as usual it didn't fail to impress. The hotel, rooms and grounds are spotless and the staff are brilliant and can't do enough for you.
If you want a relaxing holiday this is the place to unwind. With wonderful views overlooking the bay and access to the hotels private beach via a lift or steps, or perhaps just chilling out round the pool, this the place to be.
We will hopefully be back again next year and hope to get a pool/sea view next time.

Just returned from our third visit to 'Golden Sands' -Fantastic location , friendly staff, the food is to die for with superb selection, excellent facilities. Impeccably kept. Everything about the hotel / resort is 5star, any problems, just ask! the facilities are spotless, the pools are beautifully clean, but the entertainment is a little dull. Malta is one of the safest and friendliest places to visit, and the weather is brilliant! We look forward to visiting again in the near future.

Room Tip: We stayed in 2818 and it was superb with superb views over the pool and the beach.

This is our fifth visit to the Radisson as Timeshare Owners, and we never fail to be disappointed. We relax the minute we arrive at this beautiful hotel as we check in with the friendly staff. This year we also took our daughter and partner who had a lovely suite overlooking the sea and, after five years of us raving about the hotel, can now understand why.

We usually visit at the end of May/beginning of June, but this year went a bit later to fit in with our younger daughter's exams. The hotel was a bit busier, but not so much that you felt the hotel was bursting at the seams. There were always lots of free sunbeds round the pools, and we aways found a quiet relaxing spot to spread out in during the day. The really helpful pool boys are always on hand to move an umbrella or two for you.

This year we ate at Agliolio, Flavours and The Mokka Bar and as usual the food was delicious. The service is occasionally slow, but you are on holiday so what is the rush. Sit back, chill, enjoy your drink and remember you are now on Malta time. For some reason Swizzles Bar wasn't open this year, and actually we never bothered to check why - we just enjoyed the other bars instead. The view from Mokka Bar is to die for.

Our suite had been decorated again this year, with the addition of new TVs and more channels on the TV, not that we spend much time in the suite to watch TV.

Good Morning,

Thank you for staying at the Golden Sands for the fifth time. Your positive comment on the hospitality of our staff is greatly appreciated and shall be highlighted to all Team Members.
Your feedback about the service will certainly be looked into in order to improve on the service provided.
Also kindly note that Essence Bar is open instead of Swizzles July through September, the reason being that Swizzles is more of a winter venue whilst Essence Bar has magnificent views and a large outdoor terrace overlooking the bay.

Thank you once again and we look forward to welcoming you back next year.

Kind Regards,

Karla

As a frequent visitor and Island Residence Club member at Radisson Blu, Golden Sands it is the one place my husband and I look forward to coming back to each year. We never have to worry about what is waiting for us when we get there - 5* through and through. The staff are always friendly and helpful if you bother to treat them with respect and courtesy.
We normally go later in the year so this was the first time in July - we saw a much busier hotel and at times service was a little slower than we are use too, but hey we're on holiday and don't need to rush or live being ruled by the clock.
Henri who is in charge of member relations always has a friendly word and it was lovely to see him out of his usual suit at the beach BBQ. He also arranged a lovely and informative talk on the importance of sea turtles given by the Nature Trust (Malta) whilst we were there. He is a real credit to the hotel - he even recognised my husband as we were checking in - how's that for service!
The only downside is I always come away with a Berry Mojito addiction - cant wait until next year when I can feed my addiction again.
