This summer, july/august, we spend our holidays on the Isle of Malta. We stayed for 3 weeks in the Grand Hotel Excelsior and is was a wunderful experience. The hotel is located very close to Valetta. We had a fantastic room on the 9th floor with seaview, overlooking a great part of Malta and huge balcony with sunchairs. The staff is very friendly, great service and the room was cleaned every day, very thouroughly. Twice a day clean towels and every day free bottles of water.
The restaurants offer delightful choices for breakfast, dinner or lunch. The poolarea is very well organized with staff that will provide you anything you need.
We checked the reviews on TripAdvisor before we left and noticed some negative comments about private dinner party's held around the poolarea that made that guests had to be removed and stay on the beach. Non of this happened during our stay. Yes, there were private party's but not to the inconvenience of the hotel guests. It was all well orgnized.
We can highly recommend this hotel when you plan to visit Malta. You will feel very welcomed to enjoy and relax. Try a nice treatment in the hotel's Spa. You will love that!
And when you decide for scuba diving, the hotel offers a great service on that aswell. The divicenter Watercolours will pick you up and bring you back to the hotel.
We will definitely come back next year and we already know where to stay....this great hotel!
To the staff of the hotel:
Thank you very much for the pleasant stay and the efforts you make to provide your guests a wunderful experience!
