“Nice Hotel,but”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

Generally a nice hotel. Lots of pluses,a few minor faults. The bathrooms are not up to scratch. Mouldy grouting, a bit small. Some of the restaurants ,especially Henry .J. Beans is best avoided. Food tasteless and not cheap. Draft beer to be avoided,unless you want to feel queasy. Da marina restaurant quiet nice,food good. Breakfast in Hotel,very good, great selection. Location wise it's probably on the wrong side of Paceville. A little bit isolated,unless you like the tacky sleaziness of Paceville being the nearest entertainment centre. I would give it a 4.5 instead of a 5 star.however I would not rule it out of future consideration,once you accept the minuses,it's a good hotel. Staff nice, everybody does their best. Excellent wi fi,maybe a couple of more English speaking entertainment channels on .T.v.

Room Tip: Sea view ,west facing if you like Sun on your balcony.

Thank you for your feedback regarding your recent stay at the Corinthia Hotel St George’s Bay.

I am glad that you enjoyed our Hotel, our buffet breakfast, the complimentary Wi-Fi, the quality of service of our staff and the Da Marina Restaurant.

I apologise that the bathroom and the food at Henry J Bean’s was not to your satisfaction. This is not our usual standard. I have asked the Maintenance Manager and the Executive Housekeeper to ensure that we remove any mouldy grouting. I shall also speak to the Head Chef regarding the food you had at Henry J Bean’s. It is unusual for us to receive such comments as this is a very popular restaurant with both our guests and locals alike.

We look forward to welcoming you back to Malta and to our Hotel.

Best regards

Typical megaresort with abundance of 'stuff'and too little attention for quality and detail. Food bad; breakfasts only slightly better, but no local produces. Rooms large and comfortable, good wifi, bathrooms substandard. 3 pools but all in shade after 4 pm.... The area is appalling, the hotel is isolated but not in a good way, and st.juluan-paceville is one if the tackiest traps i've seen, same league as lloret and paphos, only more congested and dirty. 5 stars absolutely not deserved

This could easily be yet another TripAdvisor review that uses all those superlatives that trip out of the post holiday happy haze. We cannot avoid many of those words of praise or need to!!
The few days that we spend at the Corinthia were quite excellent. The staff excel at taking care of their guests, the food in all restaurants was high quality including the enormous breakfast buffet that needed much exploring and testing.
The hotel was immaculate, our room was well appointed and comfortable, the pools well kept and clean, the sun loungers were clean, comfortable and in good condition with towels etc etc. The hotel did not have any end-of-season blues so often experienced this time of year so credit must be given to all. Add marvelous views front and rear with Maltese sunshine and we had a splendid escape to the sun. Well done all at the Corinthia.

Room Tip: There are many options. Phone or email and ask if you are unsure.

First time in Malta. Chose our hotel from Tripadvisor, and we were not disappointed. I asked for a room on the 3rd floor overlooking the pools and onto the bay. Given room 236, just as I requested (if you count floor 0 as the first).
Enjoyed an overview of a Maltese wedding on Sunday. Quite a few of the hotel guests were enjoying the music and the entertainment. ( one couple even jiving on their balcony).
Spend the first 5 minutes in the restaurant to take in all the food stations. (It wasn't until the third morning I found the pancakes and the COMPOT - wonderful.
The bus stop, 100 yards from the hotel, was great as the No.13 to Valletta started only 3 or 4 stops away so we managed to get a seat each time. Wi-Fi was very good even though it did not connect straight away, a young lady at the reception desk managed to get it working within a few minutes.
Stuart, the manager, held a get-together in Grill 3301 (Just realised that's their postcode) on our second night, No hard sell or anything like that. Pity we had booked into the Da Marrino restaurant, because the wine and canopies were great.
Altogether a fabulous holiday, warm weather, lovely hotel and excellent staff.

Wonderful Hotel. Friendly and helpful staff. Excellent food and facilities. Location could not be any better. Very clean and comfortable. Various restaurant to choose from with excellent food and service. Within walking distance from the night life in Paceville and yet so very quiet and peaceful.

Room Tip: Sea View rooms are fantastic

I was fortunate enough, it was the best price offer and I got excellent facilities and service for acceptable price. The staff are professional, trained to a high standard,responsive,benevolent and friendly. I stayed in a big double room with two balcony and overlooking the sea. In a bathroom you will have all what you need even bathrobe and slippers.Cleanliness and doing the room is very good. In hotel is good wi-fi connection. Indoor pool and sauna not so big, but it is and good-working. The breakfast is delicious,plentiful and varied. I liked my time in Malta.

Room Tip: 4 floor is an executive level ( if price is not different choose it )
