Liked: Location of the property. Room was a decent size and the cleaners were very good. Didn't like: Not being able to check in before 3pm, even though I had messaged them to ask if we could get in earlier as we arrived at lunchtime. Pool - not big enough for the size of hotel.

We thank you for the feedback and are glad you liked the size of the room as well as the level of cleaning service. Especially during the peak season, it is not always possible to check in before 15.00hrs. Previous guests can keep their room until 11.00hrs and then one needs to clean and supervise the room. We do not have only one large pool, but two. One of the pools is for adults only. Each pool has its own bar area. We send our regards.

Hotel was very nice, clean. Hotel owns two restaurants and a Gastro Pub across the road, also buffet style restaurant (breakfast and all inclusive) beside hotel lobby. Swimming pools very nice. 1: Family pool 2: Childrens pool with slide 3: Smaller pool for toddlers 4: Adult only pool 5: Heated indoor pool. Pools are salt water except for indoor pool. Access to sea from hotel but no sand, rocky like most of Malta. About 5 minute walk to Qawra souvenir shops and restaurants. 10 minute walk to Buiggba. 1 quite steep hill on route there but manageable even with buggy. I really liked my stay in Malta easy to get around by bus. Bus depot 5 minutes away from hotel. You can buy a bus card 12 single journeys for €15 which can be used for a couple so no need to buy a week card but they are available for €21 per person unlimited journeys for the week. I purchased a Malta Discount Card this cost €25 euro and gave us discounts on alot of attractions and discounts of 50 percent on some restaurants and 25 percent on others. Definitely worth it for families. Enjoy your stay in Malta!

We thank you for the feedback - the hotel's own pool has been on operation since the 1st April'19. Whilst works were taking place the hotel was offering the pool and sundeck of the neighboring hotel which is 150 metres away. Since this review is anonymous we cannot know when you were in the hotel exactly. Cheers.

Good Return Visit

Stayed March 17 and returned February 18. Sea view room overlooking Salina Bay was lovely -waking up to sunshine, most days. Sun on balcony until 2.30pm. Extensive selection of food at breakfast and at dinner with complimentary beer / wine / soft drinks at lunch & dinner. Hotel is in a good position, with bus stop right outside. Tha room was clean & comfortable and included Samsung T.V., a fridge and a digital safe (no charge). Good value with efficient flights from Easyjet.

Good hotel indoor pool small

Pros: The room was comfortable and clean. The gym was good.
Cons: The breakfast experience was too busy. The indoor pool was very small and when many people there felt overcrowded
Location: Qawra has a few good restaurants and a short walk away is Bugibba and St Pauls bay which have lots to do. Our favourite restaurant is mother earth.
We had a good experience overall at the Seashells. We upgraded to a larger room with a sea view bit more than we wanted to pay but probably worth it. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. The balcony was spacious with 2 chairs and a table and somewhere to hang wet clothes. The room was changed every day to a high standard even if we left the room after 12 noon. The breakfast was ok except for o ne day when t was very busy and a bit of a bun fight. Good selection but too busy at times.
