We stayed in the 4* Fortina for 7 days at the end of August 2014. We had a large sea view room on the seventh floor facing the city of Valletta and the view was absolutely stunning. The room itself was clean, tidy and included everything that you need. The food in the buffet restaurant for breakfast and evening meal... More

We spent one week in the 4 Star Fortina Around the middle of July 2014 in a superior sea view with balcony. The view of Valletta and the harbour were stunning. The room was basic but then all it was used for was sleeping and changing clothes. The food was good and although it was sometimes difficult to get reservations... More

The first room they gave us was tiny. Dirty and had feacal matter in the loo next day and 50 euros lighter we were 'upgraded' not much better. We found cockroachs in the food. Took pics. The pool was being worked on, I know they couldn't help that but it made life difficult. And the staff were surly. Dine around... More

First impressions are good. We had a de-lux garden room which was generous in size but looking tired. One bed was so tired it had a sheet of chipboard under the mattress. When you look at the detail you see just how this hotel needs a lot of TLC. The restaurant on the lower ground floor where breakfast is served... More

We stayed for 14 days at the 4 Star Fortina towards the end of July 2014. We paid for a superior sea view facing Valletta and Harbour but unfortunately not all Harbour facing rooms have a balcony. For some unknown reason there are 2-3 rooms on each floor without a balcony. After complaining we were given a superior sea view... More

We bought two tickets for a day by the pool from deal.com. As soon as we arrived we went to the Island bar to pay in full for the day. The first problem was that the person manning the counter didn't know how the deal worked and expected us to pay in full (when we had already paid 10% through... More
