First impression always start at check-in. Check-in is at 2pm we arrived early , been told to wait for check in time fair enough , 2:30 comes room is not ready dont mind it . Could have at least offer a glass of water or coffee , yet they are the one that is abrupt if you ask them about the room . It will be a different scenario if you want to stay at your room late . Dining at one point we have to stay in at the hotel for dinner ,, front of the house Cristina entertains us for a second and turns her attention to the others with us a unfinished business and gets back to us a moment later. speaks to her work colleague so abruptly in front of us. She needs a proper training on manners. The people on the dining area tirelessly working Ajila and Edenly and the rest of the team . The Dining manager noticebly never left the area for help , Hola beach bar i have just seen open once.

This holiday was booked in 2019 for 2020 and as many will have experienced, we finally got to go 2022. Our original accommodation was changed last minute due to building works, but we had the pleasure of experiencing the Labranda Riviera Resort in Marfa, Mellieha. The friendliness of all staff made our holiday particularly the Animation Crew - they were amazing - thank you to all 🙏 Will definitely be back 😊

We have just returned from a 9 night all inclusive holiday with our 14 year old daughter having spent a 14 day holiday to the same hotel in 2019.The room had a pool view which was nice and cleaned daily but the room was a twin room that had a flimsy bed put in as a after thought nowhere big enough for 3 people . The all inclusive deal was a little disappointing in some ways at our last visit we helped ourselves to drinks in the restaurant and was able to queue in the comino bar but now it is all waiter service which would be excellent if they had enough staff unfortunately this wasn't the case and we often had to wait for upto 30 minutes to get a drink totally unacceptable maybe its the management trying to cut down on the amount of drinks you can have.The pool side bar and food was excellent the staff were very friendly and helpful, the food at the pool side bar was excellent quality. Finally I have to give a massive 👍 to the animation team gonzarlez, tia, abraham and 1 other who's name I forget, really sorry I forgot, they went out of there way to get everyone involved and there enthusiasm was spot on,hope gonzarlez is feeling better soon .won't stop us returning but please management listen and learn

Dear Mr John F, Thank you so much for your lovely review of your recent experience at LABRANDA Riviera Hotel & Spa. We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. Kindly note, the self service is not possible due to the Hotel offering a variety of different boards. In regards to the room, these are our standard sizes that sleep 3 people. We are sorry to hear that this was an inconvenience for you. Should you wish to return maybe you would be interested in taking a look at our Family Rooms that sleep 4 or a Junior Suite for extra space. Nonetheless, your comments are much appreciated and will be shared with the relevant departments to improve our services. We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you again in the future. Kind regards, Manuela Guest Relations Manager

I went on my own. main points .Excellent location, room 330.Hotel big ,bright and airy. Nothing to do for children, not on the beach but you can swim from the rocks. building works outside the hotel but it will be worth it once completed. All the staff were friendly, polite and tried their best. The bar staff Tara and Victor in particular were brilliant. The outside pools are salt water. Travel from the airport was tedious, too much traffic and mostly bad roads. Public transport excellent and cheap. The food was hot but repetitive, some imagination needed here. the room was clean as was the hotel. Balcony overlooking the rear. Unable to comment about other rooms as I never saw any There was a good deal of live music and entertainment at night, but no party type fun here. All inclusive was excellent but there was nothing food wise after the restaurant had closed. Stella was the beer for AI and all other drinks were branded names Overall I really couldn't find any fault worth making an issue over. Would I go again, Yes. It it a bit out of the way but if you want something quieter then its ok. Suggest: if using the bus buy a weekly ticket for 21 euro, you can get them in the hotel. There is also an island hop on and off sight seeing bus that visits the hotel every morning

A big thumbs up to La Branda Riviera. Just finished my 7 day stay at the hotel. It was a week of total relax. All staff are very nice and welcoming. Very clean rooms and all areas. Food is excellent. Entertainment very good. And mostly a big well done to the animation team. They do activities and games all day to keep a happy atmosphere for everyone. Will surely go again next year. And it will be for the 3rd time since I was there last year also. Highly recommend.

Beds were best here. In bathroom only shampoo and soap. Location near Gozo and Comino, beaches 1-2 kilometres away - but full. I didn’t like that area around hotel cause construction and demolition. Wi-Fi was not working perfectly also. Cleaner was rude. Tea and coffee added once per week .. I was disappointed… But if you are person who like to stay in hotel whole day and lie next to pool, you will be happy probably..

Dear Andrea, thank you for sharing your feedback with us. It is a pity to hear that your stay was not to your full satisfaction and we apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you whilst on holiday. We appreciate your comments which will be shared with the team to improve guest experience. However, kindly note, we always suggest that guests check the location prior to booking to avoid any disappointments. Unfortunately, it is not in our hands what happens outside the hotel grounds in regards to building works. Please bear in mind, it is high season and therefore the beaches are well visited and can get crowded at peak times. If we had known that the coffee and tea was not being refilled in your room we would have immediately send someone to bring you more. Wishing you all the best. Kind regards, Manuela Guest Relations Manager

This hotel is great. I was in room 401 with inland view, which I wasn't so fussed about and to be fair after being in the pool area I'm glad my room wasn't around there as during the day it is super loud with music and the guests. Breakfast was good, great location to go Gozo and Comino but if you wanted to go into the city then you would have to get on the bus which will take about an hour. I would recommend this hotel if you're looking for somewhere more chilled and relaxed but if its a party life youre after you're better off staying somewhere around St Julians or St Paul's Bay. Staff are lovely. Only thing I didn't like was the music during the day in the pool area was just too overwhelming loud, even with headphones or bass ear buds you can't hear your own music or feel like you can just relax and read a book. I found it extremely difficult to concentrate to try and relax with a book, would end up going to my room to do so. The Lebanese resto was okay abit pricey but the staff there are amazing. They noticed I was travelling solo so they gave me tips where to go and what they recommend I should do.
