We were in Malta last week and decided to pop along to the white dolphin for dinner. We have stayed here before but this time we were on the other side of the island but that didn't stop us going there for dinner. Food and service was very good and the waiter remembered us from two years ago when we... More

We were a group of 9 people and we stayed in three different apartments ( so we saw most of what they can offer). The price was really cheap except for the one apartment at the very top (I will focus on this one as this is where we slept). It was a one bedroom apartment, fully equipped. It can... More

We had a decent sized balcony with a pool view. The pool was small and in the shade from about 3:30 in the afternoon. Rooms were cleaned every 3rd day... More

I'd like to mention that this is a 3 star hotel. When we first arrived the staff were pleasant, and so they were for the rest of the holiday. The hotel has a lift, which is always helpful. The internet is really fast, and doesn't cost a lot (15 euros for the whole 7 days.) The rooms are quite spacious... More

We didn't pay a lot so I didn't expect much but was pleasantly surprised. The apartment was very spacious (2 bed) and had most kitchen necessities but it was a bit tired, could do with a bit of tlc in places. The guy who welcomed us was really helpful and gave us some great malta tips with maps and places... More

Hotel is little and quite, at least in June. We rented a flat and it was nice, big and very clean, everything as described. Only thing is that it was at the ground floor in front of the restaurant, so not much privacy unless keeping curtains down. But owners and people working there are very much helpful and kind, restaurant... More
