“The most amazing place in Malta”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2014

My husband and I got married on the 7th September 2013 and departed for Europe the next day. Whilst on Honeymoon, we stayed in some of the most amazing cities but it was a short trip so we were completely exhausted!

By the time we arrived in Malta at The Westin Dragonara Resort - it was as if we had arrived in Heaven!

It was wonderful to arrive where you are acknowledged and made to feel special. The real treat came when we got to our room! WOW! What a veiw and so much space. We found that most standard rooms in Europe are cramped and with shower over bath. Having worked in Hospitality for over 11 years in South Africa, this is not something that I am accustomed to. So of course once we found out that were upgraded - we were over the moon with excitement and delight.

Malta is a spectacular place and we had finally gotten to a place where we could unwind and enjoy this wonderful culture.

I would like to extend a huge thanks to Eva Daja for assisting us with confirmation of our reservation when we were in a state of panic for our Visa's. To the wonderful reception, breakfast and pool staff - you are all amazing and we thank you for your wonderful service. To Housekeeping, thank you for the impecable service. I must apologize to turndown service though - once we retired every evening we had a DND on the door so that we would not be disturbed.

We hope to return to Malta and to your beautiful property with the whole family - my son would have loved the options at breakfast and to be honest, we may have been fighting over the jelly treats and pancakes!

Thank you all for a trully memorable experience.

Celestè

I stayed in this hotel for a week with my parents, sisters (aged 19 and 24) and my sister's partner (24). We were all looking for somewhere to relax and that is exactly what we got. From start to finish we were taken care of in what can only be described as a luxurious resort. The lobby exceeded expectations and even during check in the staff made an effort to make us feel special. The management of the hotel were always visible and happy to advise on all aspects of the holiday.

For some of us this was a greatly needed break from work, and the fact that we were in a 'club room' with access to the lounge during the day and drinks there in the evening made a real difference to us. All of our rooms were large with nice bathrooms and a lovely view. My parents had a tower room with a large private balcony and for them this was an extra which was well worth it.

The pool areas were multiple and we spent much of our time on the sun loungers right on the rocky edge of the water. This is probably more suited to strong swimmers but at times the water was quiet enough for anyone to enjoy.

We ate in a number of the hotel restaurants and on occasion had drinks in the lounge bar afterwards. Prior to dinner one evening we sat and listened to the live music on the terrace and for my sister's and I this really made the trip.

We also made the most of the local area and found it easy to walk out to restaurants and bars during the day and in the evening. The only thing I would say is that for young people we found this to be a relatively quiet area, so it may not be suitable for those looking for a busy nightlife. It is worth bearing in mind however that my sister and her partner found the casino to be great, with service and surroundings to match that of the hotel itself.

My parents are already talking about returning there.

It was the first time I was in Malta and the Westin was a great hotel. The staff where very welcoming, friendly and very attentive and made the check in a breeze. We got a nice room at the executive level close to the lounge where we enjoyed each night drinks and hors d'heuvers as well as a great breakfast in a quiet atmosphere. Pam took good care of us as well as all there others and they where always happy to get you anything you desired.
The room was large, had a nice bathroom and a nice view over the pool area. Since it rained a couple a days, we didn't got to use the balcony much, but I'm sure it is a treat in the early spring and later summer time.
The bar at the hotel is cozy and with a piano playing a welcome place to relax and have a drink or a meal.
Parking was free and underground. Close by is a dive store that we used for our diving activities. A real gem when it comes to diving. DiveWise.com.mt will make it happen for you.
It was a lovely time and I will sure be back. Thank you to all people of the Management also for the tee party and meet and great on Sunday.

Room Tip: The executive lounge is well worth it if you are a platinum member.

The room we got was huge, with abalcony facing the sea (absolutely dreamy!). Has great amenities. The staff was most helpful. The chap playing the piano in the loby in the evenings was wonderful.
The buffet breakfast was full of goodies.
The location was very convenient and great for evening walks and transport.
The only downside was the WIFI, the free wifi worked only in the lobby and was extra slow, it seemed like the hotel was making every effort to make you pay for a normal speed package.... a pity.
Otherwise PERFECT!

Room Tip: Room 405 404 were perfect.

I was lucky enough to stay here on a business trip, in a beautiful large room with a spectacular view over the bay. Meals in the hotel were fantastic, the gym facilities easy to navigate and everything was stylish, slick and great quality. Very impressed.
