Spent a week at the Hotel Fortina. Loved it because it was all effortless and fun for us, a family of six.
Good points: Food was great, location was excellent and there were plenty of shady spots beside the pool - it was 39 degrees on one of the days! Literally 5 minutes to the left of the hotel is Malta's largest shopping mall. You cannt see it from the hotel, it is tucked away behind. Still, had we known, we'd have packed little. GREAT SHOPPING! M&S, Debenhams, River Island etc. It provided a break from sunbathing and being indoors, was cool. Staggering view from front of hotel right over Valetta. The two hotel pools are just fab.
Down points: water in the restaurant is a stupid €4.20 a bottle. Calippos at the poolside were €3.50. Opposite the hotel is a gorgeous ice cream stall and we spent out money there instead. Reception could have been friendlier/smilier.
People here have moaned about the lifts. We were on the 6th floor and took the stairs. It was the only real excercise we got in the day. I don't understand why perfectly fit people, most in their 20s and 30s were waiting for a lift to take them up one or two floors. If those people walked each time, there would be no queues. The stairwells are clean, bright and we never met a soul.
We will go back to Hotel Fortina and would recommend it.
