I'm sorry you had a bad experience at the hotel. I advised the management and staff for future clients.

The outside pool was closed for maintenance (we were told, although we saw no-one working on it until Saturday). The breakfasts were not to bad, although nobody seemed to be able to set the toaster, and the staff behind the counter for hot food were surly and unhelpful. the whole hotel seemed in desperate need of a refurbishment.

Nice hotel close to the beach, park

Hotel is nice with an outdoor pool, they have a lounge area with activities every evening (live music, karaoke). They also have a travel agent who is very helpful with booking cruises and other activities even a shuttle bus to the airport. Room was big, lots of light.

You Get what you pay for

Having read several reviews of this hotel on several sites and having travelled extensively both for business and pleasure I always take most negative criticism with a pinch of salt. The hotel location was ideal for what we had planned and the price was extreemely reasonable for a four star Hotel. However, like others, I have to say this hotel has far to go to be a truly Four Star establishment, unless that is the standards are lower in Malta than elswhere. I paid and extra 84 Euros (total for 4 persons) for a room upgrade and was glad I did. It was classified as a superior room, so I would hate to see a standard one. The fridge nor the Aircon were working correctly but it was clean, comfortable and had a nice view considering 70% of all Malta hotels just overlook other buildings. If as I do, you only use the room for sleeping in, then its perfectly adequate. The Breakfast is fine but I wouldn't bother with evening meals unless you go all inclusive, the food also is not 4 star to put it politely. The pool is very small but food and drink from the bar is very cheap. In Summary, it was a pleasent stay and as I said it was far from 4 star but then the room rate wasnt 4 star either. I have said I wouldnt recommend the hotel however compared with others at a similar price, if you're on a budget then I might but definately upgrade to a superior room

Malta Getaway

The staff were pleasant and helpful, however, I'd not have classed it as a four stars hotel, as I've previously stayed at others, which were of a much higher standard all round, in regards to cleanliness, amenities and mod cons (for example, the lack of tea/coffee making faciltiies within the room). The room was basic. Don't stay at the back of the hotel, if you're a light sleeper and can't stand dog noise, which's almost constant, as we'd to move because of it. The breakfasts are fairly good. I'd recommend staying at the nearby hotel apartments/suites, as they're much better all round, which's where they moved us to in the end.

Bussipysäkit lähellä hotellia ja siinä lähinnä paikan hyvät puolet. Kuntosali täysin ala-arvoinen, wifi maksoi 8€ viikoksi ja joka kerta piti uudestaan kirjautua sisään. Huoneen wc oli oma lukunsa. Hanat vuosivat ja joka kerta, kun veti vessan, piti pitää peukkua, että se myös vetää tavarat alas, eikä mene tukkoon. Ilmastointi huoneen katossa oleva tuuletin, onneksi emme sitä tarvinneet. Ulkouima-altaalle paistaa aurinko vain muutaman tunnin ja altaiden kunto melko kehno. Ylipäätään koko rakennus pitäisi saada kokonaan päivityksen 2000 luvulle. Aamupala välttävä. Henkilökunta väsynyttä. Alakerran baarissa joka ilta B-luokan esiintyjä ja karaokeillat kaiken kruununa. Meidän onneksemme esiintyjät osasivat laulaa! Yläkerran kattoterassi oli iso ja siellä paljon aurinkotuoleja. Muuten yleiseen viihtyvyyteen pitäisi panostaa tosi paljon.

Bon rapport Qualité Prix

Pros: la chambre
Cons: Petit Dejeuné de meilleur qualité et propreté de la piscine interieur
Location: Aquarium et très bon restaurant italien a 10 minutes "Trattoria a Lanterna"
Hotel Moyen, Le petit Dej' est gratuit mais pas très bon, A part ça tout es correct - sans plus.

Avis sur le séjour.

Avons eu la surprise d'être dans un autre bâtiment que celui où se situe la réception. Literie de très mauvaise qualité. Je sentais les ressorts du matelas!!! Au niveau de la propreté il ne fallait pas être très rigoureux. Plein de tâches au sol sur la carrelage. Les serviettes étaient changées tous les jours ce que l'on a bien apprécié. Le petit déjeuner était copieux. Avec plein de choix. La situation malheureusement n'est pas exceptionnel!!! En bord de route. La piscine est vraiment petite. Je ne pensais pas du tout à ça en ayant vu les photos avant notre départ. Globalement déçue.

Huoneen taso

Hotelli oli neljän tähden hotelli ja ymmärrän, että tähdet eivät ole suomeen verrattavissa. Huoneessa oli hometta joka oli suurin huolenaihe, hissi temppuli ja meinasi jättää meidän kerrosten väliin, näinollen sitä ei uskaltanut käyttää vaan kävelimme rappuset neljänteen kerrokseen.
