Our first impression of the hotel was one of opulence. We had been met at the airport by one of the hotel cars, and were given a very welcome drink on arrival. Our room was beautiful, everything you could possibly need had been thought of. Plenty of cupboard space too. Tea and coffee making facilities which is always good. The view from our balcony across the harbour was beautiful. All the staff are attentive and very approachable. Breakfast is in a very large light and airy dining area, a vast choice for everyone, eggs cooked to order for omeletts etc, and pancakes.
If you like your tea you may find theirs a little weaker and milk seems to be half cream, lovely in coffee.
The outside space is vast, lovely pool, which we all enjoyed very much, the sandwiches from the pool bar I can recommend they were lovely, more like a panini. You can walk into Valletta from the hotel quite a few steps up to the entrance of the hotel, we walked most evenings. We did use the hotel cars to book a trip to Mdina which is well with doing it cost us €20 for 4 of us each way.
We would definitely live to go back 5 days not enough!
