Mavina Aparthotel
Ranked #9 of 14 Hotels in St. Paul's Bay
Reviewed 20 October 2008

My husband and I were very happy with what we paid to visit the MAVINA through a travel agent. We booked HB and weren't expecting a great deal bearing in mind the amount we paid. When we arrived we found the room basic but on turning back the bed covers found the sheets to be lovely and white and clean. The bathroom was basic also but the towels were brilliant white and clean, as was the bathroom itself. We particularly liked the different meat selections each day for breakfast - especially the one with peppers and olives in. The evening meal menu was varied and plentiful. The pasta starters and the smoke salmon starter was very nice. Also the main courses were varied and tasty. The staff were very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Infact, I experienced people walking into reception asking to look around because they had heard Mavina was good and their accommodation wasn't acceptable. My Husband and I would certainly visit the Mavina again.

Reviewed 24 October 2007

we originally booked at another hotel and had a terrible 4days eventually we got our rep to move us to the mavina. We were only there 3 days but we enjoyed it so much that we are going back soon. the staff were very friendly and helpfully hotel very clean which saddly isnt the case of most of the hotels in malta, there meals were great and unlike some places you didnt have to que for them. the hotel is in the centre of it all which was great as we didnt have far to go to get buses or bars or best of all the shops. The pools are checked constantly which was reassuring for families with children. Even though the hotel is next to bars we didnt have any problems with noise which was ace. When we arrived we were greeted by thomas the cutes cat iv ever seen lol so wanted to take him home. as soon as we get our photos done we will post them on this site

We stayed 11 days in a 3-room apartment (bedroom / bathroom / living-kitchen). Service was half board

Location:
Directly opposite to Mavina is a 5-story apartment with in-between a noisy and crowded street. Doors to the small balcony mostly need to be closed in order to ban out the noise.

Apartment / rooms
The apartment has a stairwell, no elevator (a problem for people on age with heavy suitcases)
No airco but a fan in the bedroom. Rooms are clean but very basic and definitely needs to be renovated.

Breakfast (half board)
Basic offering, 3 type of breads an egg and as sandwich filling cheese, meat and jam. Coffee, tea and jus available

Diner (half board)
Basic offering daily selection between, 3 starters, 3 main courses, 2 sweets. And although the service is friendly, you will be ready within the hour. (After completion of the starter, main course is there within seconds)

Sports
A small pool is available with limited space for beds around it. Also a snooker table can be used

Summary:
Although Mavina is a 3-star hotel, the apartment probably is not
Instead of half board, ordering from the menu does give a broader selection (dining outside is probably a good alternative).
The location of Mavina is not ideal, the street is noisy and as soon as the apartment on the opposite side of the road is operational, privacy will be minimal.
