I stayed in this hotel for a week with friends. We had 2 rooms with balcony on the 7th floor which were spacious and had good air conditioning, a must in July in Malta. The decor was a little tired but the beds were comfortable and the free extras - chocolates on the bedside table at night and 2 bottles... More

This was a fantastic holiday break. Celebrating our wedding anniversary and my husbands birthday. Every thing was first class, room, food and staff. If I had two little moans it would be about the lounge in the evening. We sat down to enjoy a coffee at 8.30pm we were served then 5minutes later the "student waitress" wanted to take our... More

Just returned from an excellent week at this hotel in the beautiful city of Valletta. The hotel arranged our transport from the airport , an affordable luxury especially as we arrived quite late in the evening. The driver was so welcoming and provided lots of helpful tips on things to see and do during our stay. This set the scene... More

Enjoyed my stay. Large hotel with lots of facilities and space, close to the centre of Valletta, although you do have to walk up steps and a hill! However, it’s downhill on the way back and the hotel has a fantastic location overlooking the harbour. Room was large with everything you needed, plus a balcony with views of the harbour.... More

We stayed here for a long weekend in early July. It has everything you need to relax and enjoy the sea and sunshine. There is a great pool area with plenty of sun loungers, and the hotel also has its own small beach with access to a cordoned off area in the sea. It is within walking distance of the... More
