“really nice view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014

I have been pleasantly surprised by this hotel, very nice staff, the food is delicious (it includes all sorts of meals, including local cuisine) and the view is simply breathtaking. You have the bus stop right in front of the hotel, so reaching the main cities is easy. A minus would be the windows that don't seal well the room, letting in the cold during the night, but I guess that only happens during winter and I stayed there in february

Room Tip: Ask for a seaview

We thank you for your review and are glad we have pleasantly surprised you.
You would have been one of our very first guests this year, because we have only just opened on the 17th February after the Winter closure.
It seems like our new restaurant has been a hit with our guests - we are glad you like it.
Cheers

Having spent two fabulous weeks at seashells in 2012 my wife and I have booked again for two weeks in August this year, really looking forward to seeing everyone again and seeing the new restaurant just hoping the food is as excellent as last time, also looking forward to seeing the guys in the animation team again whose tireless efforts helped to make our holiday so great last time. See you all in August!!

We thank you for your excellent and encouraging review - it is great to read that our efforts are appreciated.
The main restaurant is looking just great - still a bit dusty - but great - it is larger with lots more of daylight and the seaview is larger. David our chef is preparing - who now also has a brand new kitchen (the restaurant was not the only place rebuilt) very good things for our guests.
We look forward to seeing you again in August.
Keep the good spirit up.

There's a lot of bad reviews on here but I don't understand how you can fault this hotel. It's an amazing family holiday,the food is fantastic! All food and drink services during the day are fab. The animation team are fantastic and the entertainment was great! They had some really good shows on! They were very good with children,and got them involved as well as the adults! At night it was really good,the children would play on the park whilst we sat and socialised with many other parents. The pool was great,as well as the kids pool! The rooms were fab! Really clean,basic but you're not going for the room! I would advise anyone to go to this hotel!

Hotel rooms dated but adequate with basic cleanliness.
Buffet food more than acceptable however all other hot food served was not good quality in the slightest. Breakfast selection was lovely.
Pools were not particularly clean and small tiles in the children's pools were loose and falling into water a lot so not the best health and safety.
Bar only allows you to pick up 2 drinks at a time so husband had to make 2 trips for us & our children.
Staff were pleasant and children entertainers good.
Our family are Maltese and wouldn't rule out staying again if for a short period of time.
Shame the rooms do not match up to the communal area standards

We thank you for your review and hope that you enjoyed the rest of your stay in Malta. Around 10 minutes' walk away from the hotel at the centre of Bugibba - one will find ample entertainment also interesting for your people, not to mention that Paceville/St. Julians is only a 20 minutes' drive away from the hotel.
We suggest future guests to read more reviews on this site about our hotel - also from younger guests or young at heart.
Cheers.

I was a bit apprehensive with our choice of hotel after reading some reviews. I needn't have worried. The room was clean, quiet, and comfortable. The food was excellent, and although due to refurbishment at the end of the season one restaurant was closed, it was also very varied. The staff were very polite and efficient, and the facilities were second to none. I would have no hesitation in returning, or recommending Seashells to my friends.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
The Seashells Resort at Suncrest has been a leading 4 star hotel on the Maltese Islands since its very first days and has kept its tradition of hospitality within the AX group throughout the years. We decided that it was time to give the hotel a face-lift so during the winter months the hotel will be going through an extensive renovation programme with its doors re-opening on the 1st of April 2015. The property is conveniently located on the Salina to St Paul's Bay Promenade, merely a few minutes' walk away from the National Aquarium. Right opposite the hotel entrance guests can also find a very handy bus stop. Take a left outside of the hotel and you will immediately start walking towards all the hustle and bustle of Bugibba and Qawra, the main tourist hub on the island. Take a right and you'll be heading out on to the coast road for a 20 minute drive to St Julian's to enjoy the most popular night life spot in Malta. The hotel is located on the seafront for fantastic views of the Mediterranean and the best sunrise anyone could hope to wake up to. Guests can enjoy a sea water pool and pool bar (weather permitting) enabling them to experience a truly Mediterranean holiday. For the younger audience a kid's pool, fun boat and slide promise fun, activity and excitement. The Carisma Spa and Turkish bath (Hammam) will continue to pamper guests in a more intimate and relaxed atmosphere. Get ready for the new face of the Seashells Resort at Suncrest, your number one resort for individual, corporate and family travel. ... more   less
