We where booked into the Blue Sea San Anton, which is facing this hotel - part of the one complex; but we where sent here. This proved to be a good thing as this hotel was quieter, the San Anton had loud music and partying each night until late.
This hotel was more than adequate for our week long stay, we went all inclusive for very little extra cost (£34 for two), but usually chose to eat out in the evenings.
It was very hot, not a sign of a breeze for five days; even with three fans going the temperature in the room never fell below 30deg at night; Phew!
Breakfast was adequate self serve type, a mixture of healthy and not so healthy options. We where annoyed on one morning as the dinning manager would not let us in five minutes early to grab a quick sandwhich before going on a day trip!
In the evenings you go across the road to the San Anton for your meal. The food here was okay, but as other reviewers have said it lacked variety; the indoor dinning area was horrendously hot as windows and doors seemed to be kept closed and the aircon was not being used;- a good way to keep people from sitting too long!
You can rent a wall safe for about 20eu. Fans can be rented too - but there seemed to be a shortage.
The hotel location meant a 15 - 20 minute walk to the sea front - it was however near to one of the stops for the island tour buses - very handy.
The staff here where mostly friendly.The room was cleaned each day, which was more than we had expected.
To conclude; this hotel did the job as a good base for holidaying in lovely Malta, if you want aircon and luxury then expect to pay a lot more.
