Stayed at this hotel for week in June/July. Had a wonderful stay! The hotel is well kept, clean and is brilliantly located. It's a long down hill walk to the beach but worth the fantastic views on the way! You can get a bus there and back though. So many restaurants to choose from in the hotel complex and surrounding area.
Buses are available to all over the island from here so it's a great place to base yourself if you want to be away from the busy area's of malta. Mdina and Valetta are a must see! Great places to eat at St Julians Bay. Warning about the buses! They look like new buses but are very squeaky and noisy! And way too hot when the air-con breaks down! Also a very bumpy ride, drivers drive way too fast on sometimes very narrow roads! But it all adds to the Malta experience!!
We requested a room at the back of the hotel after reading reviews. Good move as it's much quieter. A few nights a week they have entertainment which can be heard in your room but if you want absolute silence, pick a boring hotel with no entertainment! Our room was spacious and more than adequate for our stay. Luckily no problems with the bathroom like some other guests! Room was cleaned everyday. Cleaning staff are very friendly and happy people! We managed to leave our key card in the room one day and as we were in hysterics over this one of the cleaners on his break went and got his master key to let us back in! Thank you! Shame I didn't get his name!!
Make sure you try out the spa! It's fab and well deserved when on holiday! Print out your free hydro massage voucher on this site! They do great offers and the ladies are are brilliant at what they do!
We only had breakfast here which was good. Basic and did the job. I don't understand all the negative reviews about breakfast choice! It's baking hot, how much do you want to eat!!!
Lastly a mention of the friendly, extremely helpful, happy and brilliant staff!! Ariana, Ekaterina, Joseph at reception/front of house, Amanda the duty manager, the staff at breakfast (didn't get their names but they were so happy first thing in the morning!) and also Abir and her therapists in the Spa! Apologies if I spelt any names incorrectly! I can't express in words how helpful ALL the staff are! Didn't come across anyone who was rude or unhelpful. They truly are an asset to the hotel!
Ok one more thing! I left a review about the hotel in the comments box at reception and received a lovely letter of thanx from Ariana! Thank you so much for that, such a lovely gesture!
I will definitely recommend this hotel to anyone going to Malta!
