Just back from fantastic break, everything was perfect the spacious room with balcony the huge shower, good choice of tv channels. The indoor pool, the gym and jacuzzi and the days at the MedAsia playa lido. The breakfast is really good with a lot of cold and hot items changed daily. The hotel felt very safe too during covid. The level of cleanliness is excellent, moreover there are sanitizer dispensers everywhere, staff wear masks at all times and the breakfast is served from behind a glass screen. Special mention goes to the staff, they are super sweet and friendly while still very professional. Thank you all for your service till next time:)

Stayed at the Waterfront for 5 nights. Its location is unbeatable and it is very close (approx. 5 minute walk) to the Sliema ferries with ferries to Valletta as well as the sea front. Very good value for money as well, with breakfast included. Great amenities too, there is an indoor pool, however, the hotel grants you free access to the MedAsia Playa beach club, which is about 20 min walk away. We had a room not with a sea view, but the room had a terrace and we had could still partially see the sea. The staff were super friendly and attentive and went out of their way to deal with our requests (special shout out to Alex at the reception!). We had some maintenance issues in our room e.g. fridge and shower head not working, smell of cigarette smoke and ash on the bathroom floor, lighter in the room etc., which they tried to sort out quickly. These people are really customer/client-oriented and always have solutions to issues. You may want to consider upgrading your toilet paper supplier, unfortunately it felt like sandpaper and was crumbly. Also try and maintain cleanliness of communal areas like the corridors and hallways. Other than that, I would return because of the great and attentive service.

We both really enjoyed our stay, the view from the hotel, even from the side balconies of the building is really nice, great sight to see the harbour and valetta so close in the distance. Staff are beyond nice, never experienced kindness like that before, will do anything for you. Room was lovely, spacious, very clean, modern, super air con etc (balcony slightly tight, I had to move the table to get around it but once that's done can sit two on it perfectly, personally that stuff doesn't bother me but it's good to let others know). Breakfast had lots of choice, you can ask for as much as you like, again staff are all superb.....it is a great location to get around, bus stops everywhere, ecabs app recommended to get around, so cheap, quick and easy, loads of shops and restaurants nearby, various things are within walking distance. We actually were shocked to realise on the first day the pool wasn't on site, we hadn't looked into it in too much detail, but if you know before going it is no big deal and we got used to it immediately, it's a nice little 15 min walk to get to a nice complex with a variety of pools, one for music, one for kids, one very much for a chill out. Enjoy! I have no doubt you will.

We had a great experience with this hotel. At first we got a free upgrade to the sea view room. The view from the room is unbelievable. The staff was very nice. Room was new. Breakfast was perfect. Location was ideal. Try the bar cocktails 🍹. Amazing! If I go back to Malta ( I hope so) I would stay at this hotel again

The hotel has a great view and in a great location... the rooms are so neat and clean and the washrooms are perfect. But the best part I feel is the staff. They are so good and warm and welcoming and we were made to feel so special everyday at the breakfast table, I will always give the hotel experts stars for that! Highly recommend
