We liked the location of this hotel as it was only a short walk to the front and also Bugibba square.
There are a couple of nice bars which also do fast food very nearby, for football fans right by the hotel is Chris's snack bar which has a big outdoor screen and serves good beers.
The room, balcony and bedding was all clean and maid came in every day to clean which is important as it was hot in the room with no air con, but the ceiling fan was great when combined with opening the balcony door.
Staff at reception were either very nice or very grumpy, but being polite to them helped resolve minor issues such as not getting towels replaced and getting local information. The one problem that I found difficult to overlook was a problem with the shower in the room which was so weak it was virtually useless. When I asked at reception if something could be done I was told "it is old shower what can we do"! Also as their was no extractor fan in there or window it was like a sauna as soon as you used hot water if the door was shut.
Breakfast was a buffet which was quite good and there were plenty of tables even when at its busiest.
What may be an issue to some guests is the evening entertainment which is very loud and goes on late, we never had problems sleeping though as we the days out in the sea air sent us to sleep quite easily.
The pool area was always clean as was the pool itself and the bar area was a pleasant place to have a drink before heading off. The take out Pizza at the hotel was highly rated by several guests.
They have recently spent a lot of money on the reception area, I think it would have been better spent on upgrading some of the very dated looking rooms to be honest. But all things considered for what we paid it was good value for money.
