“Holiday July 2012”
Reviewed 20 July 2012

Just back from 2 weeks at the Dolmen Resort Hotel Malta with my family and after many trips to Malta over the years this has been by far the best hotel. Our room no 357 with balcony nearly perfect. Due to high temp the air con could have been a bit cooler but the room was still comfortable. Because of this, we are to re name Malta, Melta! The staff were very polite, always said good morning and lots of pools to choose from (: Plenty of entertainment for children as well with the kids club. Thank you for a great holiday. PS Don't forget happy hour every night for cool cocktails.

stayed for one week on half board basis. Initial room disapointing but were upgraded to much better room. Staff were friendly and willing to help, food was buffet basis and always plenty of choice.
All areas of hotel clean and especially nice round the pool area.
Location excellant for exploring Malta, bus station round corner and tour buses stopped at the hotel.

Room Tip: we were on third floor, very quiet and good sea view.

I was in Malta for some business and turned it into a short holiday. The dolmen was fantastic. The room was fine, with a balcony and air conditioning that worked, very modern. The lay out of the place is excellent with several pools on terraces leading to the sea. Though there is no sand, the tiled beach area is large and comfortable, with beach chairs, umbrellas and an attentive staff. Kids tended to stay in the kids pool area, adults by the sea. A great mix of families, couples and singles of many nationalities. Buffet breakfast was overwhelming standard, but, many different restaurants in the area for great local and Italian dishes. And, the island is simply beautiful, Valletta an incredibly gorgeous, small, well planned baroque city. And the Caravaggio of John the Baptist , in the cathedral of the same name, is a must see for anyone, art lover or not. A great spot, too often overlooked.

Just come back from a 2 week stay in The Dolmen Resort Hotel. Fantastic hotel. There were 3 of us that shared a room which was a good size and a big bathroom. The room was lovely and clean and was cleaned everyday by Radostina who was a lovely friendly lady with a smile and a greeting for you. The food was fantastic. We stayed half board and I have never eaten so much everyday for a long time. Bugibba it self was a lovely place with fantastic views over the bay. Gorgeous sunset every night. Staff were helpful and friendly, the dining room staff very pleasent and attentive. Reception staff were mostly very good. One or two seemed a bit grumpy. Malta is lovely and Valetta a fantastic place to visit. English is spoken every where and all the people are very friendly, even airport staff great. Weather was very hot but pool always had umbrellas to shade you from the burning sun. I loved my stay and so did my sister and mum. Would love to come back here again.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view as the front of the hotel over looks bus station.

Stayed in Dolmen for 1 week while on a diving holiday. Didn't eat in the hotel as there are loads of different places to eat nearby. Really nice pool area, although they are unattended so kids tend to do what they like around them, can be annoying if all you want to do is swim. People at reception had a strange manner but seems to be the way in Malta. Overall good hotel.

We stayed n the Dolmen for 10 days. The rooms were fine, the staff kind and helpful but very special was the animation team. They give the hotel a unique atmosphere. They make a room for play, laugh, dance and fun and these young people manage to combine it all - across national boundaries and age limits.
