This hotel isn't a 4 star in any way shape or form! Do not be fooled by the pictures on the website as these are dated. The all inclusive package was abysmal afternoon snacks consisted of the same pieces of cake offered at breakfast, kids had no ice cream and you could only drink from certain bars at any given...

This hotel is on the most north western tip of Malta facing the islands of Comino & Gozo. It is a quiet place but had enough going on to keep us happy for 10 days. If one wanted more evening entertainment than what was on offer one could catch a local bus a few paces away which took one to... More

A good hotel with staff who are keen to please, in an unspoilt quiet location - just what we wanted. Hotel is very clean and bedrooms of a good size - and most importantly the bed was comfortable. We had no problem with bathroom or air conditioning. You do have to pay a returnable deposit on TV remote control. You... More

My husband and I have just returned from a week here on an All Inclusive basis. We were looking for a relatively calm, relaxing week. Our room Very Basic - shower was functional but looked like it needed redoing (door didn't close). No air conditioning which led to some very uncomfortable nights. Had to pay a deposit for TV remote... More

That is the ultimate question when you have spent a weeks holiday in a resort. The hotel was good quality in an excellent location if you want a peaceful holiday. The sea is 10 yards from the hotel entrance, with a harbour and water sport activities there. There is a cheap bus service to the busier towns, and a one... More
