I was very happy with this Westin and the level of service. We had a ocean view suite, one of the largest suites we've ever stayed in. It looked recently renovated and was perfectly fine for our brief stay. The hotel itself was well maintained and looked like new in most areas. We only had time for breakfast at the hotel. The breakfast buffet was fine and had something for everyone in the family. This hotel really excelled in customer service. The concierge, George, went above and beyond for us making tour, taxi and restaurant reservations. He also went out of his way to resolve a problem we had with the tour company. George and the rest of the hotel are very patient, polite and helpful. We were too busy sightseeing that we didn't have time to enjoy the pool and the rest of the outdoor amenities the hotel offered, but the pool looked nice and I saw guests enjoying themselves outside. If we return to Malta, we wouldn't hesitate to stay at this Westin again.

Room Tip: Pay extra for the ocean view rooms. The water is stunning and we enjoyed watching the sunset from o...

We chose the Westin Dragonara for our 15th wedding anniversary trip based largely on positive reviews here on TripAdvisor. Prior to our arrival, I called the hotel to arrange for transportation from the airport. During this call, I mentioned the fact that this will be our 15th-anniversary-trip. The lady on the phone reacted very friendly and said she would make a note of this fact and they'd have a little extra prepared in our room (sparkling wine was mentioned/suggested).

We arrived at the hotel in the afternoon, after discovering at the airport that our luggage had not made it from Heathrow to Malta. We advised front desk staff upon check-in accordingly and were provided plenty of toiletries that could have lasted through our entire stay, as well as an extra pair of slippers.

The hotel does in fact slightly show its age on the outside, but it did not take away from an overall very pleasant experience. The food (breakfast, lobby bar and Quadro restaurant) was excellent and delicious all around with plenty of choice. The waiting staff of the Quadro fine dining restaurant was especially friendly and provided an excellent local wine recommendation, which perfectly complimented our chosen dishes.

On the second day, after returning from a trip to Valetta, we found some fresh strawberries paired with a small dish of what appeared to be Nutella in our room. This was a cute attempt to deliver on the promise of "a little extra" given over the phone; however, for a five-star property we felt the hotel fell short on its promise. On the other hand we did not expect any special treatment and simply acknowledged this as a well-intended gesture.

We would like to make a special note of concierge George, who was not only extremely accommodating, but also "spot on" with his recommendations on local sites and restaurants. When asked for a good restaurant with local Maltese cuisine, he suggested the Gululu, which was a 10-minute walk from the hotel and it was a treat!

All in all we found the Westin Dragonara to provide a very pleasant atmosphere and felt well taken care of by all staff members.

This hotel was fantastic for our wedding April 14 and an excellent time was had by all our party. The Quadra terrace is a perfect location with sea views and excellent picture opportunities, the wedding meal was outstanding and staff where attentive at all times. From the start of our wedding planning the wedding services where more than helpful and could always answer any queries quickly and promptly, putting us at ease through out our planning process.
From start to finish of our stay we had outstanding service, making it the best 5* hotel we have experienced with immaculate surroundings employing staff that are welcoming and friendly at all times. Good gym facilities with towels available for pool and gym use. Buffet style breakfast fresh no matter what time of the morning. Rooms are a good size with comfortable beds, air conditioning, tv, mini bar, hairdryer and bottles of water available. Wifi is available but may be extra with some rooms, we always had a good connection when used. Free Wifi is available in the lobby of the hotel. Overall, an excellent hotel.

I have just come home after arranging a kids party at The Westin Dragonaras kids club - and it was a perfect and wonderful experience. The communication was great, they took care of all, and its nice place to do a nice party. The food, service, cake and entertainment was prefect. And honestly one for the few places where there parents can talk while the kids party aswell. We will do more events here.
