The Ambassador was a perfect and ideal hotel location overlooking the sea and docking bay of Malta, St Paul's Bay. The rooms are standard and clean, the Restaurant an exciting place (it's very animated with traditional décor) and a place for family or friends. The pool is a nice place to chill. Xemxija is close to many sight seeing places... More

The hotel itself is clean although the decor is very dated and the room itself very small and stuffy having only the one balcony door. Stayed on a half board basis the breakfast toast cereal and a pre plated salad!!! Evening meals are really nice... More

I booked this hotel thinking it was in Bugibba as advertised on the website On The Beach, it isn't. The hotel itself is clean and very peaceful. Due to travelling with a toddler this wasn't ideal, there was nothing in the hotel or nearby for a toddler to do. The staff where friendly. The rooms are on the small side,... More

눉Where to start! Firstly no double rooms just twin rooms. No prior warning that there was major construction work going on on the shoreline with pneumatic drills and jack hammers going all day. Noise at night and when reception was asked what time the party boats stopped was told "not our fault and don't know!" Breakfast exactly the same every... More

Dinner was a choice of soup or pasta for starter and fish or meat for main and pudding was a piece of cake absolutely terrible. The bar closed at... More

The headline says it all. I don't even want to write about it, I am still in shock of having paid out so much money to stay 10 days in a stinking, filthy , rotten tip of a hotel. I wish I had taken notice of all the negative reviews on this site. I can only imagine the positive reviews... More
