As I said, it lives up to it's billing. Just spent a relaxing week there and have very few complaints, mostly praise. Very grand entrance and great room which was very spacious, clean and comfy. Nice little balcony as well which is nice to sit and chill out on. Pools are a great place to lounge about, do a bit of reading and cool off in the blistering heat. Always plenty room to get a couple sun loungers and the main pool is for adults only which is nice and quiet.
Breakfast is a great spread and can be enjoyed on the balcony overlooking the pool.
For dinner there's a couple restaurants which both do very good food (generally, the odd thing not so good thing like the pizzas) but of course you pay for it, which is what you'd expect. We ate dinner twice in the restaurants in the hotel, and the rest of the week ate elsewhere. I'd definitely recommend going out and about for dinner, especially to the likes of Xlendi where there's some fantastic resraurants which do at least equally good food, at a better price and a much nicer view of the water. The Boat House and especially Ic Cina are both great choices but there's plenty to choose from.
Easy to get around the island (no need for a car) as the buses are made for tourists, both cheap and reliable. There's also a courtesy bus twice a day from the hotel to the main attractions on the island which is worth making use of.
Overall definitely recommended but try to get out and about for dinner.
PS heard some people had problems with the staff but everyone we came across was friendly and professional.
