“Fantastic relaxing holiday. Definitely going back!!!!”
Reviewed April 24, 2012

Arrived at the Westin Dragonara after a short flight from Belfast. Reception staff friendly and efficient - a great start to our stay. We travel a lot and know what it is like not to have good reception staff. Room was spacious and we were looking forward to sleeping on our heavenly beds, however mattresses not as good as in other Starwoods hotels. Bathroom toiletries adequate but remember to pack sewing kit if like us we always seem to need one! Breakfast buffet was vast catering for everyones needs. Staff brilliant. We stayed on half board and decided to eat in the bar arera every night - menu varied, starters huge. Staff efficient and friendly (Manager Michael and barman Mark) Gymn and pool used every day. Thank you to all and we are already preparing a trip back later this and will be adding this hotel to our favourites.

Room Tip: Try and get a room on the south side - usually have even room numbers.

In March we stayed a few days at this great Hotel. The staff was very friendly and the loacation perfect. We enjoyed the beautiful view from the specious room and especially from the executive lounge where we had a perfect breakfast on the terrace overlooking the water. Pam, who is in charge, has a great personality and takes very good care of her guests. This was always a good start of the day. Thanks to the professional staff and wishing them a great season.

My family and I had a wonderful 5 day stay just before Easter 2012. Great rooms, service and to top it all, I mentioned it was my wife's birthday and upon entering the room on said day, we found an enormous and delicious cake. It was like eating a cake made of Gu chocolate, if that means anything to anyone.

We made use of the indoor pool and gym. Breatfasts were great too.

We have just enjoyed a short break in Malta when I took an age to choose our hotel, so many with contradicting reviews. Boy am I glad I decided on the Westin. We decided to take the executive package which included breakfast and access to the executive lounge during the day and during 'happy two hours' when a full range of drinks was available together with very tasty snacks, both savoury and sweet. We also took the super breakfast each morning in the lounge. I don't know if it was the time of year, mid April, but the lounge was always very quiet and relaxing and only served to confirm that we had made a wise choice in our package selection. Our room had a sea view across the terrace and pool area and caught the northerly wind whilst our friends had an outside room in the south tower and so were sheltered from any wind and had perhaps a more open sea view. The room was excellent, as was every aspect of the hotel, with very comfortable beds, quality linen and towels, spotlessly clean. I could go on but it would all be added praise. The hotel is delightful, very well situated and maintained, with quality at every turn. The icing on the cake was the attitude of ALL the staff who couldn't do enough for you, no matter what the request. All with such a pleasant persona. Well done to one and all.

Room Tip: From our experience, an executive package gets you, for a price, some added goodies and excellent ro...
