This hotel is just outside the main gates to the city of Valletta. It is a modern building with love;ly pool, plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas and small beach directly onto the sea. It faces one of the busiest creeks full of 800 different ships and boats. The public areas are very nice with plenty of seats, the two restaurants very spacious with a pool restaurant serving snacks and meals. The rooms are quite large, well furnished with some carpets looking old. The bathrooms are excellent, big walk in shower, deep but not long bath with toilettries, bathrobes and slippers. The beds are big and very comfortable, very clean and turn down service offered. Water is provided daily for free and there is a good sized fridge and safe. The balcony has a table and two chairs and is quiote large. The best balconies are those that have stone walls between each balcony - never hear your neighbours. The restaurants offer excellent food, well prepared and menus change daily. Maltese locals praise the Sunday buffet lunch and it was great. The pool and beach area are spacious with plenty of beds, ask for umbrellas on the beach part, which is closed mid October. The floor area and walkways are water pressured hosed daily and always pool attendants were about . The pool is large and deep and very nice, with plenty of shades. The bar here was wonderful and watching all the ships go by whilst enjoying sa snack, drink or lunch was just great. Did not try the spa but others said it was very good. Overall a very very good hotel with attentive and caring staff, very clean and great food and rooms. This hotel is ten minutes walk from a huge variety of restaurants bars and history.
Tip ask for a room near the top floor, one with walled in balcony and facing the setting sun. Watching the sun set over the creek with the colours of the sky changing, the lights of the harbour front and the continual movement of boats, large and small made this a wonderful holiday
