We have been to the Radisson twice now, when it first opened and a year later. Although it is a little out of the way, there is enough to keep you busy for a good week. If you just want to lounge by the pool or beach, two weeks is OK. You can get a bus or taxi to Sliema,... More

Average hotel, nothing special, the actual beach was beautiful and we took some interesting day trips. The staff at the hotel were polite and heplful but overall you get what you pay for I suppose. Personally would,t stay here again.

One of very few beaches in Malta but the best. If you go to Malta this beach deserves the wait. Really nice and peaceful area. Good food and very clean area.

A beautiful soft sandy beach, that attracts holiday makers and locals, the sea is warm and welcoming, and safe to swim. There are restaurants and bars very close by so you can take a break from the hot sun, and have a cool refreshing drink, or a nice lunch in a a calm setting with fantastic views .

This is the place to be on those sunny days. And thats exactly what everyone does! This beach is one of the few sandy beaches on the island of Malta. And it gets busy, really busy!
