We spent a long weekend at the hotel for the bank holiday. The pre arrangements were smooth and well communicated and we arrived to our transfer, a speedy check in and our pre-ordered champagne. The hotel is an historic style building but the bedrooms are very modern, well appointed, good bathrooms and free wifi. There are also in room safes, mini bars and plenty of hanging space. Reasonable toiletries, no conditioner or body lotions though so you might want to pack your own.
The staff were very helpful though out our stay both in the bars and restaurants and reception and concierge.
The inclusive breakfast had hot and cold selections including a cook to order omelette station and drinks included a wide choice of juices, fruit teas, coffee and prosecco. The in house restaurant was good, one a la carte one buffet. Though I don't see Malta as a gourmet destination there were some reasonable foods on offer. At the pool which is a short walk through the gardens the team served afternoon fresh fruit like water melon. There is also unusually a hotel veg garden and crazy golf courses the grounds. The pool is a walk away but once there there is everything you need including immaculate toilets / showers, a bar, restaurant, wifi oh and a pretty good view.
There also a small shop and tour desk in the hotel, and on weekends live music and dancing last night tango class which was nice to watch.
It was 31 degrees when we visited so a bit hot for site seeing though the sites are very accessible. I would recommend the hotel to others , during our visit there were fiestas on which meant pretty constant fireworks / cannons. It could be seen from the balcony of the hotel terrace which was a nice way to round off the evening.
