The worst hotel, the worst experience and the worst weekend of my life. Wha a complete waste of time and money. I wouldn’t recommend this hotel to anyone. This is not a 5* it was a 1*.

Large hotel - few good bits, some poor for 5 stars

Pros: Hardworking & friendly staff especially serving drinks around the main pool & in the ground floor bar.
Cons: Treat all customers the same, ensuring everybody receives a 5 star experience. Some areas of the hotel appear very tired & in need of refurbishment.
Location: Not a great family location in the middle of "adult" attractions. Small man made beach nearby. Sightseeing further afield makes any stay better.
First visit to Malta enjoying a short break with family. Attracted to the hotel by their website which clearly displayed 5 star facilities, including modern, clean & airy bedrooms, & a new rooftop swimming pool. Sadly, the reality was far from this. Our room was tired, with a broken shower, broken glass shelf over the washbasin, & probably one of the most uncomfortablest beds we have ever slept on in 30+ years of travelling. Add to this the "local noise" from the nearby bars & clubs then sleep was very challenging. For a short break, the hotel was just about adequate, but no way was it 5 stars. We were not allowed to enjoy the rooftop pool unless we paid an additional very expensive premium. Fortunately the other pool was fine for our needs, albeit missing tiles with sharp edges seemed very much in keeping with the tired feel already witnessed in our room. I suspect there will be 2 very different types of review for this hotel, those prepared to pay for the expensive 5 star experience (including business travellers) & those who experience the tired 3 star side of the hotel. The hotel website does not really show the latter. For a short break, the hotel was adequate. Only on the last day did a member of staff explain all the various dining options. By way of an apology they then provided us with a complimentary bottle of wine & left a present in our room whilst we were dining. Nice touch. Would have been nice to have experienced this level of service at the start

Literally perfect customer service

Pros: The customer service was the main thing I liked the most. In addition, the hotel was really big and looked after.
Cons: Nothing
Location: There is a shopping mall near the hotel, a beach, and local bars and clubs for the nightlife within walking distance.
First time I have been to Malta, and booked this hotel last minute. The staff were so friendly, holding door and speaking good English. As soon as we got to the hotel, they took our baggage to the rooms, and made sure we had everything we wanted for the stay. The hotel is really clean, and has lots to do within it. Would definitely go there again in the future after my experience.

Comfortable room for business trip.

Pros: Room was very generous and the bed comfortable.
Cons: Tidy up the bathroom. Hallways a little dated. However reasonably good value for money
Location: Interesting location. Ease of access in Malta is generally good but this hotel is unfortunately situated in a non-family friendly area.
Travelling by myself this was a good base for a recent business trip. The size of the rooms and comfort level was very good, however in my opinion this is not a particularly friendly family location as there is a lot of nightlife. If that is why you are going then it is probably a good base as you only have to crawl back tot he hotel. The staff were cheery and friendly and the quality of breakfast was a very good hotel buffet level. The chaps on the egg station were very cheery and make plenty of options to order.

Amazing place to stay, lovely and friendly staff

The location by itself is excellent, it is next to the shopping centre and next to the beautiful beach. Lovely, friendly and helpful staff from reception, to IT Staff, to Indoor pool staff Jayson and to the guest assistants who always ready to help esp. our transport back to the airport. The hotel services are superb and exceptional. I highly recomment this TripAdvisor 2013 winner hotel.

Great Hotel, shame about so much building work

The hotel was great, the staff were very friendly and couldn't help you enough. The room was great, looking on to the inner court. The only drawback was the location, well more the amount of building work going on, although didn't really have an impact whilst in the hotel. Whilst walking through to the beach or to the shops / bars it was noisy and dusty. Overall I think if I go back to malta, I will stay further down the coast at sliema bay
