Reviewed April 10, 2013

Having been a 5* guest on several occasions I still can't fault this hotel. Generally nothing is too much trouble and the staff in the Taste restaurant, as always, are fabulous particularly Rita.
I had my young daughter with me on this occasion as it was easter when chiildren are allowed in this usually adult-only hotel. apart from the outdoor pools not really being open as it is early in the season she enjoyed her time as much as I did.
disappointed that there is now a bus service running past the hotel but we weren't troubled by it in the evenings despite only being on the 5th floor and were out during the day so can't comment on whether it is now too noisy to sit out on the balcony.
if you've got a free harbour cruise I recommend you try it, I had never been before but it was quite interesting and kept us entertained for an afternoon.

A great view to the harbour and Valetta, jacuzzi in the bedroom and very good restaurants offering a discount for hotel guests. We had dinner in the Tigné restaurant and Thai restaurant, both were superb. The drinks in the bar are rather expensive in comparaison with other restaurants and bars in Sliema, Valetta and St Julians.

Just back from 10 days at the Fortina. As a follow up to my December 2012 review, I am pleased to say that the management has taken back running of the Brasserie. It is back up to its excellent standard though we were dissappointed that removing all of the colourful pottery had reduced something of its 'rural' ambience. Also, that we weren't able to use it as often as we would have liked as it was fully booked for 4 days in advance; just shows that customers have recognised its returned excellence. However, Taste remained up to par and we enjoyed several visits there; the fresh tuna, and veal fillets, were mouth wateringly good. The new restaurant overlooking the sea has also taken off and proved very busy even for just having a coffee and looking accross at Valetta. The weather was very good - lots of sunshine - except for the unusually strong, and noisy, winds. In any event considerably better than the snow back in Britain. So, another very enjoyable stay at the Fortina 5*. Away from the hotel, the new ultra slick lift between the Upper Barraca Gardens and the water front is now fully open; free to descend, €1 to ascend. And, a place for future visits, the EC funded redevelopment of Floriana's hortecultural gardens which look like they may be open towards the end of 2013.

As our evening flight was delayed due to snow in Dublin, we had little or no sleep in Gatwick before our early morning flight we were therefore delighted to find when we arrived to the hotel that our room was ready for occupation before official check in time. I knew from the moment I entered the bright lobby that I had made the right choice with this hotel. The view from the room exceeded my exoectations. your staff are a credit to your hotel in particular staff at taste, we had dinner here twice during our short stay. the food was superb. I can easily see why this hotel has so many regulars. You offered so many small touches which made all the difference. Well done keep up the good work.

My husband and I have recently spent a day at the spa of this hotel and also booked a couple's massage there. Service was great and the Spa Sante was lovely, however I was very disappointed with the indoor pool which is close to the Spa. The pool is quite large but the room in which it is found is very poor in terms of decoration. Personally when I saw this place I lost interest in having a swim. For a 5 star resort I pretend much more of the indoor pool as the rest is wonderful.

After reading some of the comments on trip advisor we were a little concerned when we arrived but we could not have been made more welcome. Not only had our request for a high room been met but our room was ready for us on arrival even though had an early morning flight. Receptionist talked us through the restaurant booking and booked dinner reservations for the first thee nights. There for 6 nights and ate in all 5 restaurants. Food excellent in all. Service brilliant in Chinese and Indian. Ate one night in buffet restaurant. Quick and lots of choice but quality poor.

The view from our room was amazing and we loved being able to lie in bed and look out of the windows across to Valetta. Room large and comfortable.

All 3 outdoor pools were lovely. Indoor pool we used was clean and warm but very tired looking.

Only issue for us was the fact that the air conditioning was still on heating mode so room rather warm and needed window open.

Overall a lovely place to stay and would definitely return.

Room Tip: Go for a sea view high up. Do get a little street noise but the views from the windows which fill th...
