“Great stay!”
Reviewed 30 March 2014

We stayed at the Dolmen for a weekend back in November. The rooms are very modern complemented with stunning decorations. Our room was cleaned and towels changed every day. Breakfast was okay although there wasn't too much variety. Parking is available for hotel visitors for a small fee. Staff were also very friendly!

We have to say, we were rather disappointed this time. We had used the services offered at Dolmen two years ago. As business conferences, the Hotel offers awesome packages. As for weekend breaks, the same cannot be said!!
To start off with, the room was terrible, plain and honestly below standards. But after all we had paid for an economy room, so we did not inform the staff that we were not happy with the room. After all we chose Dolmen to relax. Having a douvette in the room would not have affected our purpose.
Friday dinner was pretty awesome. However we did notice that the starters did not change in two years. The same can be said about breakfast.
However Saturday dinner was beyond terrible: lack of choice, same starters, the risotto was a one way ticket to high blood pressure!! It was awfully terrible. Our dinner that night was Pringles in the room... an expensive packet of Pringles since we did not eat much from the restaurant.
And if you think that is the worst part... wait until a cute maid knocks on the door at 9 am on your departure day to see when you'll be leaving the room!!!!
We would have not minded a courtesy call from the receptionist. But to knock on the guests' door simply to ask the time at 9 am... that was a breaking point for us!
After this horrible experience, we are never going to use the services at Dolmen Resort Hotel!!!

Room Tip: Do not choose economy rooms... but then again... why pay for a standard when the food was terrible?

This hotel is ideally situated in a lovely part of Malta with a wonderful long waterfront promenade. There are several restaurants and shops within an easy walk and the Bugibba bus terminal is right behind the hotel. Since taking a public bus is a terrific way to get to other areas of the country, its proximity is a huge advantage. The hotel is kept very clean and the staff are cordial and helpful. The on-site spa has reasonably priced services and the outside pool areas are lovely. They have a wide variety of room layouts, some of which are not the most suitable like tiny bathrooms with no counter, no easy chair, no drawer storage, but there are plenty of others, that are fine, so you could ask to move to provided the hotel isn't full. They are very accommodating. The rooms are not at all soundproof so, if you are not a heavy sleeper, be warned. Take earplugs. You will hear activity in the halls, construction outside, chairs scraping the floor up above, etc. One morning, they vacuumed the hall carpet at 7:45. We were on a group tour so all our breakfasts and dinners were included at the hotel. After 2 weeks, the buffet selections became very monotonous, particularly at breakfast and, if you are a fussy eater, it may be a challenge. The bread was over-the-top wonderful but the baking was the same old, same old, most nights. It would be fine for a shorter duration.

Room Tip: Not all rooms are equal so it your room doesn't suit you, they will graciously move you.

The rooms were kept clean and had everything we needed in them. The hotel was fine, location was okay and we were able to see malta easily from there. The main down side to the hotel was the breakfast which felt like a school dinner.

We are really satisfied with our choice to come to the Dolmen Resort. First of all there is actually a Dolmen in the Resort belonging to Malta's neolithic Gargantya Phase, dating c. 3300 calBC. It is the only Resort in Malta with a stone monument. The Hotel is an excelent 4 star, clean and in good shape. Beautiful rooms with spectacular sea views and a very varied and tasty dinner buffet will complete your vacation. It has also a nice SPA but with only one sauna. Perfectly located with the bus station at 1 minute walk, this is really a plus since in seconds you can take any bus to anywhere you may want. Sooner or later we'll be coming back.
