Malta: St Julians Bay Hotel.Balluta Bay:Brilliant Holiday
My husband and myself stayed in this hotel in June for a week. I have read all the previous reviews and can only think that most of the reviewers spent their entire holiday looking for things to complain about within the hotel. The hotel has recently been refurbished and yes certain things were not finished off but lets face it if you want perfection in a hotel then I suggest staying at the Hilton across the bay where it will cost you considerably more then 80 euros per night!! The room we stayed in was at the back of the hotel with a small balcony. The bathroom was perfect, everything working and clean. The wardrobes were bigger than in any 5 star hotel we have been in. The breakfast was basic but it lived up to our expectations of a 3 star hotel. The man who works in the mornings at breakfast was pleasant and was constantly topping up the empty trays. We always spoke to the people who work there and have no complaints at all about anyone there. The man who worked in the reception in at evenings, Joe I think he was called was most pleasant and very helpful. He is an asset to the hotel. The hotel is actually on Balluta Bay but is in the St Julians area. I have been going to Malta for 34 years and chose this hotel as it is in a fantastic position on the sea front. Buses pass by all the time so a car is not really necessary. We always opt for a car as we like to get around the island and even after all these years still find places we have not been to. Yes their driving is a bit eratic but go to any other country and this happens. Malta has a quaintness about it which you will not find anywhere else in Europe, perhaps some people will see this as a down point but look at it through different eyes and you will love it as we do. We were talking to an elderly man in the gardens above the harbour, he was telling us all about the war and the naval ships that now visit. My grandfather was in the Navy and lived in Malta and now my daughter is also in the navy. He was so pleased and proud to be talking to us. This is the true Malta so forget about the hotel not being 100% perfect,. We will return again next year to this hotel, yes we can afford to stay in the Hilton but prefer to be a part of the true Malta with helpful Maltese people.
