Solana Hotel and Spa
Ranked #3 of 12 Hotels in Mellieha
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 May 2014

Just had another visit to the Solana. Once again had a thoroughly awesome stay. The best asset this hotel has is its staff who are, without exception, the best hotel staff we have ever encountered. Helpful, professional, friendly, efficient and caring does not even cover half of the qualities demonstrated by the staff we met wether they were Admin staff, receptionists, restaurant staff or housekeeping - they were all wonderful! Especially Ariana (reception), Maria (food supervisor), Ruby-Ann (restaurant) and Donna and Charlotte (Cafe Puccini).
Our room was spotless. We had a small maintenance issue in the room on the first night and this was dealt with immediately without fuss or bother the next morning and fixed by the time we got back to the room from breakfast!
We had fresh towels every day and fruit and wine in our room on arrival.
The food in both restaurants was excellent in terms of quality and choice and the service was certainly top standard.
The pools are both nice and clean and well maintained. There us a jacuzzi adjacent to the indoor pool too.
Had some treatments in the spa which were lovely and both therapists ( Michaela and Irena) were well qualified and well trained giving excellent treatments and service.
Overall a wonderful 5 nights stay and will definitely be booking again for next year.
(Only one thing missing - no face cloths - lots of towels but no face cloths.)

See you all next time I am in Malta x

My sister and I have just spent a week at the Solana. What can I say. On arrival the welcome we received was outstanding. Throughout our stay the staff were always on hand to help you and were very informative. Our room was spotlessly clean as is the whole hotel. Towels changed every single day. There are two restaurants for use the Bellini and the Tosca. The food in the Tosca is to die for. The service the staff give in the Bellini is excellent and so friendly and breakfast in Bellini is very good. Buy a weekly ticket on the buses at 6.50 euros for the week and you can travel all over the island. Trip to Gozo will cost you 4.65 euros return on ferry. The San Remo beach bar is also very clean good food and very reasonable prices. e will certainly return to Malta and to the Solana. Thank you Solana for contributing to a wonderful holiday.

Room Tip: We were based on the 3rd floor

Stayed at the Solana for 5 days - 26th April 2014 to 1st May 2014 after it was recommended to me by my sister who stayed there last year. I have no regrets. I was very comfortable staying at this hotel. The studio room with twin beds, located on the ground floor was very clean, cool and quiet. The room had all the necessary equipment for self catering - although stay was half board. The Bellini Restaurant was clean - well staffed and the food served was well presented although a little bland. The restaurant could do with a more varied menu. The staff were very friendly and special thanks to Maria, Chaika (Chef), Ruby, Dorothy and Lucas (exchange student on placement) who made our stay really pleasant. The evening entertainment was a "one man" band and although ok - it would be good to see more varied entertainment. All in all a good stay. I would love to go back to Malta and will definitely be staying at this hotel.

Dear Guest,

We are so very happy to read that you have no regrets in having followed your sister’s recommendation of the Solana Hotel & Spa for your vacation on our Maltese Islands.

So sorry to hear that you were disappointed with the choice in the buffet offering. Our Team of dedicated Chefs constantly strive hard at keeping a very good balance of choices to meet all taste buds, while the Tosca Pasta…Pizza… Grill… can serve as a separate dining opportunity when a particular theme night, does not meet one’s preferences.

The entire Team very much hopes there will be a future opportunity where we can welcome you back on board!

Warm regards,

Anne Grima

The hotel is nice filled with many touristic groups. There are 2 swimming pools, one on the roof and one heated in the basement. The room was clean and nice. The views from the rooms are not very spectacular. Some rooms face internal narrow backyard. Staff was very friendly.

We initially stayed here in 2013 and decided it was ideal for our needs- spacious self catering family room, safe, clean, good location, swimming pools and spa. As it was a really good holiday we decided to return his year too. The price we paid was value for money and we have paid a lot more to stay in hotels for a lot less. I would have no hesitation in staying at the Solana for a 3rd time.

We have stayed here for the last 2 weeks and cannot fault a single moment. The hotel is friendly, efficient, welcoming and clean. The room was huge with a front facing balcony and was more than adequate.
Restaurant foods were delicious. The Bellini for buffet, a different theme most nights or the Pucinni cafe on reception for a hearty snack.

The entertainment was also fun, the guitar man was far better than the piano lady but it's down to musical taste.

The outdoor roof terrace pool was clean but still a little cold. However we still went in and with the sun you warm up and dry off on no time.

We're very sad to leave and can't wait to return. If I could, I would give this more than 5 stars.

Our stay at Solana Hotel was lovely. All the staff were very friendly and helpful, they made our stay comfortable. We also visited Pergola Hotel and the staff were very welcoming. I will certainly recommend Solana Hotel.
