Back again! Few changes. The upgraded harbour (sea) view room was worth the extra. To see Valletta by night from my balcony was great.I like the dine around scheme with a choice of dinner menus. The buffet is good for breakfast - again with super views across the harbour. I tried MoMo's the Italian restaurant newly owned by an outside company but included in the dinearound scheme. Good food partly spoilt by being served on cold plates with cold serving dishes. The Indian Sa Re Ga Ma was brilliant. small portions but well cooked and flavoured. The Chinese was good but getting a bit confused with its fusion menu.
I had the thallassotherapy (free) treatment in the spa. As there was a 20% dicsount on massages I had the peace massage - hot stones with an oiling of mineral oils at the end. 75 minutes of Bliss especailly discounted from 80 to 64 euros.
Well located for the ferry across to Valletta (quite a climb but there is now a minibus for 1 ueor to take you up to the centre). Buses 12 and 13 take you into the central bus station. At 2 euros 60 for a day pass you can travel the island
There is a new shuttle bus to/from the sirport. I paid 8 euros to be collected from the Fortina and taken to the airport.
There is the Fortina Spa 5 star - next door. It uses the same grounds and restaurants. Not really worth paying the extra unless you want a room with its own jacuzzi.
The only snag is the time share desk outside the buffet at breakfast. Just smile sweetly and walk on. The touts are employed by the hotel. You get a free harbour cruise on Captain Morgan's boat (also owned by the hotel) - well worth doing. I'll have another long weekend break this time next year.
