“5star for malta”
Reviewed 4 January 2014 via mobile

We stayed at the dolmen a so called 4 star hotel where we was slightly disappointed especially the breakfast but then came to the radisson blu for the last 2 nights .what a difference excelent food great little gym and a superb indoor pool .we even got to sunbath today on the beach .
The hotel upgraded us to a sea view and 1 bed apartment. lovely staff and facilities
.we hired a car at the aiirport .it cost us €8
a day whilst the transfer would have been €20 per person .you definately need a car to explore the island and I would say the radisson is fair isolated but has bus routes from the hotel and taxis are fairly cheap .
We have already booked to retun to this hotel in the summer

Just returned from a 7nt stay at Radisson Blu Resort and Spa, had a wonderful time. No complaints, staff were very friendly, in particular Ryan French on the concierge desk. The hotel was very clean, the rooms are very spacious, the views were amazing, couldn't have asked for more.

The spa was great, really good offers throughout our stay, again the staff were very attentive and friendly. The children went to the kids club a few times, no complaints there either, staff were very welcoming and friendly.

The restaurants within the hotel are a little over priced for what you get ( but we were limited due to restricted diet) and the service was slow in the Italian restaurant. The buffet breakfast had very good selection.

We hired a car through the hotel and it was much cheaper than the holiday reps and independent places. We travelled all around Malta, nothing was too far or difficult to find. The island is really small and you will be surprised how quickly you can get around it from where ever you are.

We changed rooms to a bigger room, again the staff were very accommodating and responsive to our needs.

Would highly recommend this place and will definitely return in the future.

Room Tip: Pay the extra and get sea view rooms, the views are amazing and worth it.

Got this stay with an exchange through Intervalworld.com, so only paid the exchange rate. This hotel is one of the nicest we have seen, the service it great, they do their top to make your stay one of the best, even when a guest goes crazy from alcohol.

Stayed here over christmas, and the place was beautifully decorated. There are live music ever night at the bar, and christmas eve there were live music in all restaurants. The food it good. Deffintately love the dessert selection :D and the fruit in mornings, wow.. never ate so many grapefruits before. Loved it. Best advice, take your time to see all the options before you choose, best bet is, you missed at least 1-2 tables with more options.

Our hotel stay was not including any food, so had to buy everything. This hotel is quite remote from everything, so it will end costly, if you don't take the bus or car to go shop or eat. Breakfast was with discount (if you buy 3 at once) a bit more than 15 euro per person, dinner never under 40 euro per person, excluding drinks.. and don't take the foreign water - it costs more than a big glass of wine - 5.15 euro. Food quality is good.

The Mokka bar was cosy and great, and the ice coffees not too strong, and very delicious in the warm sun, cost around 3.30 euro each.

Hotel rooms were beautiful inside, view (if you don't pay extra and get the water side) is to a big hill. Unfortunately a little bug had found it's way in, so still here a week later, got big persistant bites. Hotel cleaning are friendly and do a good job, did forget to close outside door once, but well.. we all make mistakes.

Only thing that really putted me off.. was the spa.. it smelled of pee in the showers, and in the corner inside of the room with the pool. The steam bath, wasn't very steamy, nor warm - luke.. and the sound in there is horrible.. a few people talking, one exciting, and it screams in your ears.. changing room, was very small.. and got only 1 little bench, that is easy occupied by a fellow guest.. so change from your room and wear your bathrobe if you wish to avoid this. Seen how many/few that took a shower before heading for the pool.. (read no other did it..) really putted me off too.... but can't blame the hotel for that..

There is a dive shop at beach level, and they were very helpful. Got a nice dive on the 24th december :) loved that.

Room Tip: If money isn't an issue, deffinately go for the seaview rooms. The view from this hotel over the...

My partner and I spent 1 week in Malta staying at the Radisson Blu Golden Sands Hotel. Firstly I would like to say that Malta is beautiful - super friendly, clean, welcoming, so much to see and so steeped in history - we ran out of time to visit everything I had put on my list, so we really need to go back!!!
The Radisson Blu - Golden Sands is a lovely hotel, the staff are extremely welcoming, nice and clearly customer service is at the top of their agenda. Our room was very well appointed with a wee sitting area and kitchenette. I wish we had booked a sea view though as our country view was not brilliant. As we went in December the hotel was quite but all the facilities were open and it was very relaxing.The hotel food is very good and there are a couple of restaurants to choose from - Agliolio is great. The beach is beautiful and we sampled the hospitality in the beach bar and Munchies restaurant - again the staff were very welcoming. All in all we had a very relaxed and pleasant holiday. We would go back at the drop of a hat!!

Room Tip: Try and book a sea view if you can!

A spectacular resort that puts customer service first. Check-in and check-out went seamless. All resort employees that we came in contact with were very helpful and willing to give you as much information as you could use. The resort is a little remote on the north end of the island but what a beautiful place. Spectacular sunrise with ocean breeze every morning. The beach was beautiful and maintained every morning. We were assisted with great inclusive tour of Gozo by the resort staff. We stayed in the apartment area and had a kitchen so we did not eat at the resort much but we did take in the happy hours and the good entertainment that was provided. The only drawback was the great sunshine of the weekend when everyone from the entire island comes for a nice brunch, lunch or dinner. Parking was almost impossible. We ended up parking almost one mile from the resort in a muddy parking lot. We spoke with the staff but they felt there was nothing that could be done. We suggested some kind of a parking card for the resort guests so they can continue to park for their stay while the locals find parking elsewhere at the resort.

I was a little concerned when we found how far from the nearest town we appeared to be, but Malta only being a very small island, these distances were minor to say the least. My wife and I enjoy public transport locally when on holiday, and there were 5 bus routes catered for from right outside this hotel. Travel Tip : Buy a weekly ticket from the first bus driver you travel with, and this will cost the princely sum of 12 Euro's, Bargain.
OK, the Hotel. Absolutely one of the best hotels we have stayed in, around the world. Our suite was a surprise and a delight, sea view, full width terrace.Semi equipped kitchen just lacked a proper oven. The staff couldn't have been any friendlier or helpful. It was a pleasure to return and spend every evening in the hotel, 2 happy hours, and free entertainment ( quality slightly variable ) and good reasonably priced food on offer throughout the hotel. Weather in November was cool( to say the least )and I confess, it caught me out, not enough warm clothes, be warned Malta is NOT like Tenerife, they have a genuine winter, just not like ours.
Another thing to like, square pin plugs and sockets, just like home in the U.K., none of those silly converters.
We used room service one evening, the service was superb, the food even better, highly recommended.
In case you were wondering, yes there were some downsides to the hotel, it felt a bit " out of season sad ", due to the lack of guests, and the winter refurbishments commenced unannounced around us, i.e. painters and paint all along corridors we used.
But, overall fantastic place, will deffo' go again.

Room Tip: upgrade to seaview every time, " country view " rooms are not picturesque.
