“Positive Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

We stayed in this resort, last week, we had a very good experience, the staff were friendly,rooms clean, we have 2 comments- (1) The Hotel was not sign posted well, was difficult to find, especially when you drive from airport. (2) The Internet connection was expensive 2.5 euros per hour, even in lobby it was limited connection. In Malta Internet is is free in many places, coffee shops, restaurants, we think the hotel should offer free wifi.

Dear esteemed client,
On behalf of all the personnel at the Sunny Coast Resort and Spa, I thank you for your nice and constructive comments. It is always our main intent to assure each and every resident of ours enjoy to the very maximum these beautiful islands. For us there is no limit of expectation and this motivates us to try and do better each and every time by adding to our already full package of services.
With respect to your comments regarding sign postage of the hotel, please know that you are very right and we are aware of this fact. Since one has to cross inwards to the coast, there are several tourists (and locals) who fail to find us immediately. Due to certain restrictions, unfortunately, we are not at the liberty to just add sign posts wherever we want to. Nevertheless, we may take this opportunity and your comments to continue pressing our case to the respective local authorities.
Your second comment with respect to free Wi-Fi has also been noted. Right now, the resort is planning a complete revamping on this department which, in our modern times, touches more areas than solely internet. In the near future, the Sunny Coast will exploit the much improved offers to include a larger variety of international TV stations and faster internet coverage.
While thanking you once again for your positive comments, please do not hesitate in contacting us directly by phone or email (vacation@sunnycoast.com.mt) should you want to visit us yet again and to enjoy our latest and best offers.
Wishing you a great new year.
Best regards

This is one of the older holiday complexes in Qawra, but, following a large scale renovation over the past couple of years, it is now a shining beacon of hospitality. The Spa is second to none in the area and it's position on Salina Bay means a perfect spot for views, facilities and transport links across the whole of the island. The Village Square restaurant is very conveniently situated right in reception foyer. My family and I have visited Malta for many years (in fact I used to live just up the road in the Big Ben apartments) and, although there are some really awesome holiday hotels and complexes on the island, I really wouldn't want to stay anywhere else when visiting. Being disabled, convenience and ease of access is very important to me and they are perfect on that as well (although to be honest the roadway down from the main Qawra Rd is a bit steep if walking but there is a main road side entrance right on the pavement which means entering through the back door but who cares about that?). The staff cannot do enough for you. A real must for British tourists especially is the lovely little bar and restaurant attached to the complex building but independent of it called 'Images', Paul and his English wife Gina are almost an institution now, having been in business for over ten years now. Good beer at cheap prices, great food (cooked by them both) and the best place to book tours and ask advice/change money etc. Chaplins is not bad either next to the main entrance. Only downside is the lack of ambience in the bar in the main part of the complex, boring boring boring (that's why we go to Images!)

Room Tip: ring the complex direct before you go and request a sea facing room and they will always try and obl...

Our first stay at this hotel and all in all very satisfied. After looking at other reviews, I emailed and requested a room on either the 6th or 7th floor and was very pleased on arrival to be told that we had been allocated room 604. Fantastic sea view and high enough not to be troubled by noise from the busy main road. The room was a good size and very comfortable although the bed was rather lumpy!
Lillian on reception was very friendly and helpful and gave us a warm welcome.
There is a small shop on the first floor which is useful for buying essentials on arrival and topping up. We didn't use the restaurant as prefer to go out and about and would recommend The Plumtree, The Overflow and Luzzu's; all within 10 minutes walk. On the one evening when there was torrential rain and a thunder storm, we sprinted across the road to The Boathouse, which was very enjoyable.
The bus terminal is close by and a great way to get around. You can buy either a one day ticket for 2.60 or a 7 day ticket for 12 euros. These tickets can be used for as many trips as you like during their period of validity and with bus stops right outside the hotel, it couldn't be easier! There are also hop on, hop off bus tours which are a good way to explore the north, south or Gozo. A free Harbour Cruise is included but be warned, they get cancelled and we missed out on this but as one occasion was due to the weather I guess this was understandable.
I lived in Malta for 3 years (Dad in RAF) so this was a trip down memory lane for me but a first visit for my husband and we found this location ideal for sightseeing.

Room Tip: Ask for 5th, 6th or 7th floor and no point going near the sea and not having a sea view!

Just back from a one week stay here. the position of the hotel is great with lovely sea views. The rooms are a good size also the bathroom. It's not too far to walk into the centre for things and places to eat. We had clean towels evey day which was good. Chaplins restaurant which is next is run by Maltese and the food is very good.
I last came to Malta 34 years ago and i think it is now cheaper than it was then. Did a day trip over to Sicily which was good had lunch at the top of Mount Etna.

I was really pleased with this hotel. There is a lack of atmosphere in reception area and it's very quiet but that suited me. We mostly used Charlie Chaplins bar next door which was always fairly busy and stayed away from the hotel bar. I'm not sure why, I guess it is just that it's so quiet in there. The room was excellent. We were upgraded to a sea view and we were so pleased with the layout and cleanliness. I did have a small issue with the sofa bed being quite uncomfortable and the legs to one of the single beds did keep falling off. But overall the room was very clean with plenty of storage and a lovely kitchen and bathroom. Our towels were changed daily and the floor mopped. The pool area was pretty and fairly quiet. For the price we paid I was more than happy.

Room Tip: Walk into the town of Qawra, it's easily missed if you stay on the front!! Do use Charlie Chapl...

Dear esteemed client,

May I, on behalf of the Sunny Coast Resort and Spa, take this opportunity to thank you for your nice comments on the resort. It is always our aim to maximise clients' satisfaction whenever possible. Since the large majority of our rooms enjoys impeccable sea views and we're not in the peak season, there are always some sea view rooms which remain unoccupied. Whenever that happens we gladly and automatically upgrade the customer free of any charges.
We took note of the single bed leg and it has been already dealt with. As for the sofas, we are in the process of refurnishing and refurbishing the resort to modernise it. In the very near future all the remaining aging sofas will be changed and replaced by newer and fashionable ones.
While thanking you once again for your kind and positive comments, you are most welcome to contact us directly should you decide to stay with us again in the future.
Best regards

We have just returned from the Sunny Coast in Qwara, Malta having had another wonderful holiday.This hotel is relatively small compared to many on the island having only 91 apartments. The rooms could do with being updated a little with new furnishings but other than that the rooms are clean and contain everything you need. Towels were changed in our apartment every day and waste bins emptied with full maid service two days a week.

The best thing about the Sunny Coast is having a room with a Pool and Sea view, the Hotel is situated in a prime position on the waters edge with spectacular views out over the bay and the salt water pool.

If your find time the spa facilities are excellent, had a lovely relaxing back massage.

Pool bar offers a great variety of food and beverages at reasonable prices and staff are friendly and helpful.

Will definately be going back again.

Dear Esteemed Client,

May I, on behalf of everyone at the Sunny Coast Resort and Spa, take this opportunity to thank you for your great positive review and comments on the resort. I am glad to know that our resort helped to make your stay in Malta such a wonderful experience. That is exactly our intention; offering nice service, great facilities and friendly assistance whenever our clients need it.
Nonetheless, since we are never satisfied with the ever increasing level of quality services we are providing, we are already undergoing a structural refurbishing project to modernize the rooms. We have also just launched the Wii Family and Wii Sports option, which can now be enjoyed by parents and children in the comfort of their rooms.
There is always one constant in staying with us and that is the client's ultimate satisfaction. As for the rest, the Sunny Coast Resort and Spa does its best to always offer new and trendy services which compliment the existing ones.
While thanking you once again for your nice comments, please feel free to contact us directly should you make up your mind to revisit us in the future.
