“Very clean hotel, excellent value for money, helpful staff.”
Reviewed 18 March 2010

Could not really fault the hotel. 3* plus. Immaculate public areas and rooms. Very busy over all 4 days. 5 min walk to Bugiba and bus terminal for excellent links to all parts of the island. Pre book you taxi in and out or you pay an extra £7 each way from the airport. Generally everywhere was slighly cheaper than the UK. Greaty time, saw the sights. Would I go back again, Yes.

Spent a week at the soreda in Feb, arrived at 8.15pm checked in without any problems room on second floor over the top of the main entrance with a not to good view stayed A/I the food was fantastic how anyone can complain about the food is beyond me, the drinks are local and not bad, the dining area was dark with no windows and it did tend to get very warm in there, the staff in the dining area are A1, the entertainment was ok but catered more for older people than us ballroom dancing and crooners singing mellow songs, the pool on the roof is out of use till april as is the bar on the roof which made it a pain to keep going to the bar downstairs for a drink, there are two bars both are not big enough there are also only two toilets per bar so you have to que when its busy or go back to your room .

So the first few nights were pleasent enough then the weekend arrived this is when we found out that the Soreda is a public hotel what happens is this, the doors are thrown open to all and in flock the locals, now we have nothing against the Maltese people indeed they are warm and friendly but on Saturday night we ate in the dining hall then went into the main bar it was packed and we couldnt get a seat , so we went to the small bar holds about 15 again packed , now you dont expect this when you have paid for A/I we ended up going out to the local bars and paying for drinks, it was the same on the sunday we couldnt use the jaccuzi it was full with the locals, some come from a bit further away so book the weekend a cple of families had kids with them they soon got bored and had us awake in early mornings by running in the corriders and shouting whilst banging on their familes doors loudly .

Now for the worst part of our stay we arrived back to our room on the fourth night to be met with 3 large cockroaches my wife let out a scream i battered them with my shoe i flushed them down the loo,we sat for ten mins and thought it was over we decided to get some sleep as i was getting in to bed another 2 came in through the vent above the door another 2 battered with my shoe,
Next morning i informed the young lady at Reception about the cockys i was discreet and made sure nobody else was around, she said i would report it, we went back to our room that night and bingo two appeared so got batterd with my trusty shoe again after that night we didnt experince anymore of them so im assuming something was done , we noticed as sliding frosted glass in the bathroom opened it to reveal a huge ventation shaft so assume this is where the cockys came from .

All in all it wasnt a bad stay and im just being truthfull about our experince at the Soreda its a bit out in the sticks but a 5 min walk to the bus station and your away to experince the wonderfull History that this Island holds, if you have been to Rhodes in Greece and witnessed old Rhodes town then i have to tell you it doesnt hold a candle to what Malta offers .

Reviewed 4 February 2010

Having read complaints from previous reviewers and heard them from fellow guests, perhaps people are being unrealistic in their expectations. The 4* rating relates to facilities offered not the quality of them and, generally speaking, Malta hotels are aimed at the tourist market and not the luxury or business traveller market.
My party of five went 'all inclusive' and we always found someone available to serve us. The rooms were very spacious and very well equipped and the food was fine. I accept that my fellow guest who "don't eat lettuce & that salad stuff or any pasta and I can't stand sauce on meat" was going to have a problem but I cannot imagine anyone not being able to make three meals a day from the hotel's offering. All these places can get repetitive so do as we did and eat out at lunchtime and a couple of evenings - what you pay for all inclusive is so cheap that surely you can afford this!
Overall, we found no fault with this hotel. Even though the evening entertainment was not to my taste, there was plenty of space in the other bars to relax with a drink and the younger members of our party (19 year olds) went out and about anyway. I would recommend this hotel but if you are one of those people who expects to get 5* facilities, service and delivery at 1* prices, then travel around a bit more so that you can join the real world.

First i have to say that Soreda gets hardly 2 stars,so i dont know how they get 4 star rate,food was ok,always something that you can pick,but restaurant has no windows,its very dark,my first impression was that i entered funeral house, rooms equipment= low low low ,just to make you survive the stay,furniture old, for that kind of money if you want to save,might be good,but we know that i rather pay more as to have experience like this,i will never recommend this place to any of my friends,this place could be 4 star 25 years ago,but the time stopped there

The lobby and hotel corridors were very clean. Disappointed by the quality of the room furnishings and the cleanliness of the rooftop flooring by the pool.

Local talent perform in the evenings in the hotel bar which would be better during the main season but less than impressive during the low season.

Buffet breakfast was more than adequate with a range of fresh food. Definately worth getting up for.

When I was ill during the holiday the staff were very helpful and accomodating.

The hotel was not what we expected,. It's most definitely not a 4 star hotel, maybe 2 star.
We specifically asked for a double bed but got 2 singles. Hard, thin mattresses.

A lot of the food was processed, frozen veg at dinnertime.

Almost everybody else there was over 60, and while we met lovely people it wasn't what we expected. The hotel seemed to be aimed at this age group(entertainment)

The staff were friendly and helpful, food was bland and overcooked.

It was very cheap but so were most of the hotels we had looked at. The website photos are misleading, that's not how it really looks.

Malta is lovely and has a very interesting history and some very beautiful and interesting places to visit, the atmosphere there is lovely and the people are friendly.
