The Melleiha Bay hotel is just a little off the beaten track as far as sandy beaches are concerned but if it's English you want, it's Melleiha Bay Hotel you need.
It's a curious building - just one room thick so every room faces across the bay and at whatever level, provides stunning views. Whilst it isn't actually on Melleiha Bay, the hotel has its own swimming pools, indoor and out door and offers excellent opportunities for snorkelling.
All the rooms have well appointed private bathrooms and some have connecting doors for family use. The dining room is self service and provides a splendid selection for both breakfast (English) and evening meal. Lunch is also available for those who wish to stay nearby, lounge by the outdoor pool or explore the acre grounds in which the hotel sits. There is a lounge bar where drinks and snacks can be had throughout the day.
A dozen or so visits have never failed to provide cheerful and friendly service from the staff and a high standard of room service, if sometimes tardy. There is a little gift shop within the premises. The lowest floor house the "Midnight lounge" where there is entertainment each evening and there are some rooms on the ground floor for children and for games.
If there is a snag to the hotel it is that there are no shops nearby and the sandy beach of the bay is a fair old walk away - as is the nearest bus stop. It's best, if you want to explore, to hire a car: the hotel has a generous car park. It's not the best place for disabled people: though the hotel has lifts they don't quite touch every sub-level, mainly because of the nature of the terrain where it is built. It is possible to get round in a wheelchair - just, and if there isn't a card game going on in the area you have to sneak through. A further snag is that it is still not advisable to drink the water in the en suite bathrooms. Bottled water a must.
All in all, though, if you want a quiet hotel with good food and plenty to do, this might be just the place for you.
