“Good good good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

The Solana is a very good hotel with friendly helpful staff. Our room was spacious and clean with a nice balcony. The fridge in the room is a real bonus. The buffet restaurant provided a good range of tasty food to suit all diets. Staff were excellent and a visit from the chef to introduce himself was.a nice touch. Good,entertainment was provided most evenings along with a special drink promotion. The hotel is on a steep slope and not suitable for anyone with mobility issues but the local bus stops just outside. I did not use the Spa but my friend was not very Impressed. I visited the beauty salon next door for a pedicure. Very relaxing and the lovely Maria was a pleasure to chat to.

I was staying at Solana Hotel, Mellieha from 4 to 8 November (it was my 3 rd time as I love this hotel) and I left my home keys, a gold ring and a necklace. Once back home I realized that I left all my stuff there. Mrs ARIANA ABEL, a very nice and honest receptionist was trying to get in contact with me to let me know that she found everyithing but unfortunately I hadn't check my husband's mail.This morning when I called the hotel I was so surprised when I heard it, i couldn't beleive! This is a great example of customer service and honesty... thanks a million Ariana!

Room Tip: Any room, the hotel is wonderful!

Friendly and polite helpful staff, clean hotel, fresh towels every day, good food both cooked and cold buffet - always well stocked.

We booked half board which is breakfast and evening meal. The hotel is 20 minute walk down to the lovely beach, 5 minute by bus. Be warned its a stiff walk back up the hill to the hotel.

Both in-door and roof top pools very clean, in-door is heated and roof top pool has a fab view, Spa gives good massages.

All in all, I would recommend this hotel and probably return if I visited Malta again.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back seem quieter although not much of a view.

What a find!From the reception staff to the cleaners,waitresses and bar area,I was impressed by all.Having booked half board,we were happy with the choice every evening,but most of all by the fact that one could dine at their Tosca restaurant in the hotel or at their sister hotel's restaurant Da Ciccia,down the road,where food was of high quality and quantity!Both with an Italian twist.
The room I had was amazing,and having made a request to be away from the road as I am a light sleeper,I got one on the pool level on the uppermost floor facing the sea.Views quite breathtaking.Also found beautifull beaches at Golden Bay and in the other direction at Armier Bay.
I truly recommend this hotel,as they cannot do enough for you.I will definetely go back.

we ve just arrived home from the Solana Hotel in malta, as a family of 5 we all had a great time, this hotel was so clean and maids in everyday with fresh towels and a very high standard of cleaning. Food was excellent with many choices, staff friendly and always happy to help. Slight problem with swipe keys appearing not to work at times but easily sorted. The 2 pools/jacuzzi/gym were all immaculate all of the time, and the 2 lifts were very quick!!..Many thanks to all and we will be returning as we visit Malta at least yearly.

Room Tip: Our room was 3 rd floor at the front..no noise problem and sunny room.

This was truly a 4* hotel - we have normally found tourist hotels graded as 4* are usually only really a 3* - but this hotel really was a 4* hotel. The rooms are spacious and so was the balcony and the rooms were fitted to a high standard. We found the facilites good - we enjoyed both hotel swimming pools but the one on the roof top was very cold. The view from the roof top sun bathing area is amazing. We found the staff very helpful and approachable. The hotel is close to a great variety of restaurants with different price ranges. The walk to the beach is ok but definitely take the bus back up the hill. The beach is beautiful and the water is so warm that you could stay in all day. We would certainly visit the Solana again as we felt it was of a very high standard.
