This hotel must have the best location on the island of Malta. Across the bay from the fortified capital, Valletta, the view I got every morning from my second floor sea view room. Some updating is required but apart from that my stay there was great. On half-board, the breakfasts and dinners were excellent. The staff were very helpful. I... More

We booked the four star hotel with dine around with superior sea view rooms. The rooms were lovely and clean and the view is astonishingly beautiful. The food in the buffet restaurant is very good and the reception staff were unfailingly polite and helpful. The outdoor pools are still too cold to swim in and there is not enough seating... More

We live in Malta and recently took at weekend break at the 4 Star part of the hotel. We have stayed there many times in the past, but I regret to say that the standards of the hotel have certainly dropped, and it no longer deserves 4 Stars in my opinion. To give some examples;- - there were tears in... More

My friend and I chose Sliema for our return visit to Malta because it is so central for all public transport and ferries. We chose the Fortuna as we have seen so many adverts for it with different tour companies in newspapers and in Saga brochures. Don't be taken in as we were. This hotel does have a good location...

My sister booked this hotel, and this was a great location with easy access to the ferry, and wonderful views. Nice comfortable beds, and tea/coffee making facilities. Nice toiletries - soap, separate shampoo and conditioner. Hair dryer is quite slow. But the wifi charge is outrageous. I really do not understand why hotels charge guests for wifi. So at this...

This hotel has five different restaurants so you will not be bored! The rooms are quite small, but who goes to a place like Malta to stay one's room? The only complaint is in a four star hotel, nowadays one expects wi-fi to be in the hotel.
