We arrived to the Hotel prior to the check in time after not having slept for 36 hrs or so. We were very tired and just wanted to go lay down. I explained this to the receptionist and they changed our room so that we could check in immediately. The good service continued from there. They helped with the standard stuff, directions, resturants, tours, etc. But they also printed our boarding passes for our flight which went above and beyond. Very nice lobby and decent food at the pool bar. The rooftop pool is VERY nice! Two large pools, plenty of deck space, small pool bar with decent food, and an amazing view of the city and ocean. It is the highest point in Sliema.
The rooms were pretty big for European standards. TV but only news channels in English. My biggest complaints were there is no Wi-Fi access in the room (only in the lobby) and the floor of the bathroom will get soaked when you shower. There is like a 12in glass "door" extending from the wall which does absolutely nothing. You basically get water everywhere when you take a shower and no amount of towels will keep it from soaking everything. This was pretty annoying.
Overall I would still recommend this hotel. Rooms are kind of old but most people won't be too bothered unless you're used to 5 star hotels. The pool area with the view and the excellent service we received made up for any complaints. Also in a great location with plenty of shops/bars/restaurants in walking distance.
WARNING: DO NOT GO TO MARINALAND (or something like that) to "swim" with dolphins. Absolutely the worst thing I've ever done after visiting 40+ countries. We paid $120 per person to have a 20-30 min dolphin show. This really mean Italian lady yells at you and the most interaction you have with he dolphins is when the set their head on your lap and you pet them for 10 seconds. They snap a pic and try and charge 20euros for it. Biggest waste of time and money.
