I accompanied my husband (who was on business) for a stay at this Hotel recently.
It was our first visit to Malta and our experiance at this hotel was very good. The Service was excellent with friendly staff who helped to make our stay as pleasant as they could. There is a lovely pool area with wonderful views out to sea.

This is an excellent Hilton hotel with staff to match, all very helpful and welcoming. This is a good location with easy access to the buses which will take you to almost anywhere on the island via Valletta, good fun and cheap!

It's worth taking an executive room, although have breakfast in the main restaurant as this has more atmosphere & choice, as well as setting, we ate outside by the pool most mornings, very different to home at this time of year - it was about 23/24 every day, but cooler in the evenings. The benefits of the executive room, is that it's bigger, has a better view and offers complimentary snacks throughout the day and drinkies before dinner in the evening.

There are a good number of restaurnats nearby, Almolo is excellent - the real deal and has a lovely setting looking out at the luxury boats in Portomasa harbour. Valletta is worth a trip, you can easily take a bus there and back and they run late into the evening. We also hired a car from the Avis desk in the hotel, avoid this method if you can as it's expensive, worth it all the same. Don't miss Medina - very beautiful and quite magical................................

All in all, if you are looking for a boutique hotel this is not it, but it's a first rate large hotel offering all the traveller could possibly want, with wonderful staff. We would return...................enjoy!

Superb hotel in a v convenient location right on the Portomaso port. Just ignore the tackniess to your right in clubsville and enjoy the complex (great rooms, nice exec lounge, lovely pools, brill gymn) and bus trips to Valetta and beyond, immersing yourself in the wonderful history of this island.

This trip really exceeded expectations. It's one of the best hiltons I've ever stayed in (and I've stayed in a lot! (Luxor might just trump it)). The Italian restaurant is really special but make sure you enjoy it at lunch so you can eat outside on the terrace.

High points
Modern spacious room, view, massive bath, beautiful pools and grounds, italian restaurant, location, Easter!, great gymn (with powerplate studio), oh and the great harbourmasters' bar with superb cocktails, service and ambience.

Low points
Shower looked great but was feeble (dribble), loads of kids in exec lounge scoffing 'nibbles' for free dinner, noise from midnight revellers on beach which could be troublesome highseason, insufficient info at concierge re easter highlights on island, sun left (March) the main pool early quite early.

Would like
To return at high season when the whole complex is open and see if Hilton Malta can maintain the standards!

This is by far the best hotel on Malta - truly 5* when others profess to be but aren't. Service was superb - potential problem with booking dates was immediately compensated for by upgrade to executive room on arrival. Robert on desk was excellent.
Needed to extend stay due to ash crisis, whereupon given discounted rate to remain in our same room, which remember had been upgraded. Anne-Marie on Customer Relations was so in the right job - she was great.
Breakfast buffet sets you up for whole day - don't need anything else to eat!
Pool area is so clean & relaxing. Hotel must be cleaned by invisible workforce during the night - spotless!
Rooms were luxurious, particularly bathroom with huge shower & great bath.
Will definitely go only to Hilton on return to Malta in future.
Area around hotel is classy with Portomaso marina and restaurants.
Try it - you will not be disappointed! Trust me!

Absolutely loved this hotel. It is what you expect of a 5-star hotel. The service was great and the pool area is beautifully laid out. In addition, the beds were extremely comfortable. It is also nice that there are quite a few dining options in the hotel itself, including some lovely thai food. The Hilton is also walking distance to Saint Julian's where there are a number of options in terms of restaurants and bars.

Stayed for 2 nights on business. Big spacious room with a large balcony overlooking the sea. One of the best fitness rooms I've seen in a hotel. Good food from the Blue Elephant Thai restaurant. Would definitely stay here again and highly recommend.

Reasonable casino attached, although watch out for the acrid smoke in the card rooms.
