Stayed at this hotel for a week in February. Mistake. Only one restaurant open and one bar. Half an hour walk up steep steps to get anywhere. No bars or restaurants anywhere near the hotel so forced to either eat off the same menu each night, boring, or walk into Valletta and take pot luck. Staff were really friendly however and hotel was very luxurious even though mostly closed down being out of season. It's NOT a five star in my view but a good four star. Our oom looked out onto a stone wall. Only the Pool is free and there is a charge of 15Euro per visit per person to use the sauna and steamroom! Staff in the leisure club seemed quite put out that we were there and begrudgingly gave us a towel each having first made us go back to our room to change out of our clothes and put on the robes and slippers provided! Wouldn't stay again and wouldn't recommend it out of season.
