I had one of the best times ever on my Malta hopping tour, and Luna came across as the hotel next to the best beach on the island.
Beach> the best beach on the island:) few min walk, nice (2) cafe-restaurants on the beach directly with relatively cheap food and snacks
Sun> HOT
See> clear and awesome

HOTEL>
rooms. are spacious. with sufficient kitchen cutlery, no luxury, but budget standard..
bathroom has no outside window and the shower pressure was too low, the biggest drawback if you are sandy and cant wash the s**t down from your feet
although we were supposed to have double bed, we had twin-beds that liked to separate themselves from time to time...
balcony was big, but narrow, NO LIGHT!! and no small table for the bottle of wine
POOLS. the roof pool has a great view and is handy when you dont feel like beach, with bar service. i never tried the pool downstairs
FOOD. we tried the hotel resto just once, as the country has more to offer, burger was OK..no feelings :)

personal> if we had any trouble, they always promised to help, although they new its no possible (shower pressure). most of them were maltesian laid back relaxed but nice

generally: the hotel is good for beach, and malta discovery as it is between gozo and valetta. The night life was ..there was no night life..
i cant say i have an amazing impression of the place, but i have nothing bad to say either, malta has its magic and if you take what the island gives you you cant have a bad time there...

Hi Luke

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. I am glad to see that you enjoyed your stay overall.

If I may i will clarify a few points,
- Water pressure, we did have a few minor problems in one of our floors last year, there was a steady flow of water but not high pressure, however it has been dealt with and now the problem should have been fixed.
- Double bed, if you could specify this at the booking stage we always do our best and allocate a room with a double bed. This is dependent on availability.

Thanks again for a positive review!
Warm regards

Kyle

Not the best hotel in the world but it doesn't claim to be. This property is a very good value for money option to be honest.

In many ways this hotel epitomises the spirit of Malta. Simple, authentic and welcoming. The staff were accommodating beyond their usual duties and the stay was at no point unpleasent. The room was a decent size for a couple of friends to share and even though we had a land view room is still had views of the sea. The roof top pool, even though its the smaller one, is where we spent our time as the views from on top of the hotel are exceptional.

The hotel is in a fantastic location close to the centre of Melliha and Melliha bay with easy access to public transport to get around the island.

For anyone looking to experience Malta staying in a good hotel with friendly staff for an affordable price, look no further.

We have stopped here twice and we would return for a third stay. The accommodation is in a good location in a beautiful town. We really enjoyed both our holidays here but we are not fussy people. This place is good if you want a friendly, fun, family holiday close to the beach that offers good value for money.

A great hotel for a great price: large clean rooms, fabulous food, great pools, all in a lovely location.
Only negative was the bed - two singles pushed together but they were on wheels so moved around every time you did, which was a tad frustrating.
But overall a lovely hotel, would definitely recommend!

Hi Amy,

Thanks for your review! glad you enjoyed it!

With regards to the beds, if you pop us an email before arriving we will try and allocate you a room with a double bed if available. We do have a limited number of rooms with double beds rather than singles.

Thanks again!

After reading so many bad reviews i find myself baffled as to why people would want to complain about such a people friendly and clean hotel... this is our 6th stay at the Luna coming up shortly and we are very much looking forward to it. The staff are extremely friendly and always helpful, if there was to be any problems they sort them promptly and properly. The food is exceptional and theres plenty of choice in the DiningRoom... we never had any problems and found that if you walked a few metres down the road you where directly at the beach/shore line (which has beautiful views). We had a sea view room that didnt disappoint and was cleaned every other day and left with everything we needed... Both pools where great as you had a choice of if you wanted to go on the roof and get a great sun tan or use the downstairs one if you prefer abit of a shaded area but still offered a choice of sun or shade... like i said we are looking forward to returning to the Luna this Summer... please dont be put off visiting the Luna by the very few bad reviews!

A great affordable place to stay, our sea view room was only just a sea view, however it was great all the same. Equipment was basic, however functional and usable. I found the staff to be very friendly and helpful. I would agree the road is a little noisy during the day so if your easily woken by noise i'd stay on the sea view side of the complex. The only downside i can think of is that the beds were a little hard and i was happy to get back home to my own bed. Public transport is great and an affordable way to travel around the island.

All in a very good affordable place to stay.

Room Tip: Avoid the inland rooms if your easily woken, as there are night buses and noisey cars that occasiona...
