We stayed a week at this hotel. It is far from most attractions / towns so be prepared to take buses, shuttles and taxis to visit the island. However, if the weather is warm and sunny, this is the ideal location as the Raddison has a unique private beach, lovely pools as well nice restaurants / bars to make the best of a holiday. We were asked to go to Malta by the time-share people, we had no intention of joining this scheme but they offered us a cheap deal and the reviews for the hotel were so good we could not turn this offer down. My daughter joined us, therefore we got a large room with a pull-out sofa and a separate bedroom for my husband and I which gave us privacy. There is a kitchenette with a big fridge, two burner stove and lots of counters (and dishwasher) a very practical choice for families or people who want to cook some food. We went into a small town the first night by taxi, he brought us to a supermarket where we got a lot of beer, wine and other basics. There is a shop in the hotel but it was closed at 3:00 on the day we arrived, not very practical. The driver stopped by a vegetable & fruit stand where we bought fresh-picked strawberries and other fruits. What a treat!! We called for two room-service meals, our food was of good quality and relatively cheap. We also ate at the Italian restaurant one evening, service was poor, the food was mediocre, not great. We did not have breakfast but enjoyed coffee and some muffins at restaurant across the reception (sorry, can't remember names of restaurants but you'll get it quickly after you read this review and are at the hotel). I had two spa treatments, they were amazing, the staff and quality of the treatments were perfect. The gym equipment was ok, some was not working but the pool area was good. We did not enjoy our LONG meeting with the time-share people but we knew this was part of the deal. Overall, we loved our stay in Malta and although I doubt we will return soon, it was a week filled with lots of activities, loads of historical sites and beautiful landscapes. We took advantage of every opportunity to visit Malta and Gozo Island. The bus system is excruciatingly frustrating but cheap, just don't rely on timetables. Maltese people take things in stride and we did the same. Just relax and enjoy.
