I was a little concerned when we found how far from the nearest town we appeared to be, but Malta only being a very small island, these distances were minor to say the least. My wife and I enjoy public transport locally when on holiday, and there were 5 bus routes catered for from right outside this hotel. Travel Tip : Buy a weekly ticket from the first bus driver you travel with, and this will cost the princely sum of 12 Euro's, Bargain.
OK, the Hotel. Absolutely one of the best hotels we have stayed in, around the world. Our suite was a surprise and a delight, sea view, full width terrace.Semi equipped kitchen just lacked a proper oven. The staff couldn't have been any friendlier or helpful. It was a pleasure to return and spend every evening in the hotel, 2 happy hours, and free entertainment ( quality slightly variable ) and good reasonably priced food on offer throughout the hotel. Weather in November was cool( to say the least )and I confess, it caught me out, not enough warm clothes, be warned Malta is NOT like Tenerife, they have a genuine winter, just not like ours.
Another thing to like, square pin plugs and sockets, just like home in the U.K., none of those silly converters.
We used room service one evening, the service was superb, the food even better, highly recommended.
In case you were wondering, yes there were some downsides to the hotel, it felt a bit " out of season sad ", due to the lack of guests, and the winter refurbishments commenced unannounced around us, i.e. painters and paint all along corridors we used.
But, overall fantastic place, will deffo' go again.

Room Tip: upgrade to seaview every time, " country view " rooms are not picturesque.

Myself, my Wife and our Son Jason stayed at the Radisson Golden Sands Malta again and had another great experience. The service and the room were a real pleasure. From Ernest Barry the General Manager to Susan our maid, they all made our vacation a memorable one. Michael in the Moka Bar, Marlon in Swizels and all the Staff in the hotel were great. They could not do enough for us. Even our arrival and our departure was made easy by Ray on the front desk. Mickel helped us with our room as we needed a walk in shower for our Son, and nothing was too much trouble. We look forward to going back next year as we know we will have a great time. If you are looking for a hassle free vacation with great food and drink you have to give this hotel a try, you will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: Book a sea view room!!!

The staff were very attentive during out stay. Breakfast was excellent with the eggs cooked on demand. The spa facilites were very relaxing. The choice of 4 restaurants in the hotel were very good.
There was not much to do in the local area outside of the hotel.
The bus connection was good but it was over an hour on the bus to Valetta.

Loved the hotel. We stayed there for a week.Staff were brilliant and nothing was too much trouble. The private beach is really nice and easy to access. Went to hear about the time share options and ended up buying one!!! There was no pressure at all and if anyone enjoyes their holidays like I do, then the presentaion is worth hearing. Only one of the restaurants was open while there but the food was top rate. Although I booked a garden room, which is the cheapest, I got a room one the end which gave not only the garden view but also a view of the sea. Buses run at the end of the hotel drive and you can get around the island easily. The cost is only £2.50 per day and you can travel anywhere on Malta for that.

Room Tip: Ask for an end room as you get the garden view as well as a sea view. Form the sea view rooms you ex...

Radisson Blu Resort & Spa Hotel ( I Believe 5 Star ) .
Has every thing you could ask for .And is Highly recommended .
and if you pay a small amount and contact AZURE. With conditions you sit 90 min for Azure, to tell you all about the Hotel and many other offers. After which your stay for seven night is mostly paid by Azure. From the free Taxi from the Air Port and free taxi back . The Hotel has own Beach , With all facilities .personal ive never had such a good Accomodation ,and service ,lastly having just returned , they were offering free shuttle sevice to free Island Tour Bus trips and free Harbour Cruises.
