We stayed in a top floor suite which is quite pricey , we were able to drive a very good deal because of the time of year but loved the hotel views and the quality and service we received.
The bed was v. comfortable-a big thing for us-and the room was quiet.
The breakfast buffet was excellent and service was extremely good though because they use the very pungent local water,which they are probably used to but we aren't,the tea and coffee tasted terrible.In the end we used bottled water and the kettle in our room to make our hot drinks and this was much better.
NOW the PIECE DE---They have a themed different Buffet each night of the week and these were frankly unbelievable,the Turkish Head Chef really knows what he's doing,all the dishes were spot on and in stark contrast to the Restaurants of Valletta which we thought were crap.The really big thing is we don't like Buffet,we like to have table service and feel that we are being waited upon properly but thjs place completely turned our heads.Weather a little ordinary in late Nov/ Early Dec but for a late autumn or early spring break I'd strongly recommend both this Hotel and Malta which is interesting and quite charming.
