Beware !!!

The hotel adverts sounds great but the reality is very different, the staff on reception are really nice and attentive but unable to assist with most issues as the hotel fails dismally in so many areas. NO AIR CON in May, even when the outside temperature is in excess of 25 degrees, and because there is NO AIR CON there are no fans available because the guests are screaming for them in order to get to sleep. My first night was spent with the window open and the noise of the traffic at 5:30 am the next morning sent me downstairs to let them have it, granted I was moved but to a smaller room at the back of the hotel. Food was basic, parking ticket system a joke and the wireless broadband sporadic at best. The rooms are tired and desperately need rejuvenation, the bed was OK but the bathroom was old and didn't cut muster as far as other hotels on the island. This was my first stay here for and definitely my last, do yourself a favour and pay €20 euros more and stay at the Palace or Fortina. Would I stay here again, only if all the other Maltese hotels were fully booked and it was offered free. Definitely more Travelodge than premier inn.

Room Tip: Definitely request a sea view round the back overlooking the Pool, complain about the parking fee of...

Wonderful room, wonderful staff, so helpful and welcoming, clean is not the word I have never experienced such a wonderful hotel and I travel a lot.

You must book this place, a 10 min walk into the town where there are bars, restaurants, beaches amazing, a must see beach it the Beautiful beach thats the name and by does it live up to that name. There was only around 10 of us on it perfect.

I will definately be going back infact I am booked in for September for 2 weeks, cannot wait.

Room Tip: You must pick this hotel its simply the best of the best

The Radisson Blu at St. Julian's in Malta was absolutely amazing! When we arrived, we were greeted with lovely, friendly staff. My mother bought me a voucher for our honeymoon and had pre organised everything with the hotel so we had no idea what to expect with our room. We walked in and the room was perfect! It was so big and spacious and had a large and very clean bathroom, a comfortable lounge chair and a deck over looking the sea with a jacuzzi spa. The hotel facilities were fantastic, great bars and restaurants, beautiful day spa (I highly recommend getting a massage there), and the pool area was so relaxing with a 'swim up' bar with yummy cocktails! What I also loved was the location. It was walking distance to many lovely cafes and bars in the area and also a small beach for those wanting something different to the pool. Nothing was a problem for the staff, they helped us with everything from car rentals to cruises for Gozo and Comino and were just lovely to talk to about Malta in general. We plan on going back next year, and we will definitely be staying at the Radisson Blu.

We travelled on the 1st May for 1 week, we stayed at this hotel last year also, we found it cheaper to book direct with hotel than it was to go thru a travel agent, saved approx £300. The staff are exceptional, very friendly and helpful, nothing is too much trouble. The hotel is very clean. If you are looking for that little bit of luxury, then this would be the hotel for you. We will be going back next year.

Room Tip: pool side is the sunny side

We have been visiting Maltaince 1980 and have been staying at this Radisson Hotel every year for about the last fifteen years. The prinicipal staff do not change and it is particularly pleasing when you are remembered by staff who make you feel most welcome on your return each year.
The hotel is currently undergoing an upgrading programme to the bedrooms and the new bathrooms are excellent.
A new introduction this year is happy hour with local drinks half price.
I must commend all of the of the bridge bar staff on their excellent standards of service.
We look forward to returning next year

This was my first time in Malta. Radisson, like everyone says here offers much and might leave some wanting more on other attributes. Located right by the sea its beautiful but its rooms deserve an update. Everything is close by in Malta, so there is no such thing as far off. Its a good business hotel at the end of the day. Breakfast was great with a huge spread and WiFi was good as well.

Radisson Blu was not fully operational, as the season is just starting, but no less it was very enjoyable. Nice spacious room with modern clean ensuite, and toiletries daily. Very comfortable bed and pillows and not a trace of the smell of smoke. We had a nice sea view but was not in line for aftenoon sun, more is the pity. That said there are many areas to soak up Maltas sunny climate and more than one pool to relax around.
The Bridge bar was the only one open whilst we were there but it lacked nothing. Staff were attentive and friendly and put sport on for those that wanted it without spoiling the ambience. In the evening there was entertainment in the Bridge bar in the form of singers all of good standard and varied music. Happy hour was offered 6.30pm-7.30pm. Food in the buffet was excellent and there was plenty replenished at all times, we were well looked after by Jesmond who seemed to be our waiter most times we visited Kon Tiki, breakfast was taken here too and again faultless. The Bistro was the only other restaurant open whist we were there and it too was good food, served hot and plenty, and a varied choice again faultless.
The hotel is in a nice position looking over St George Bay/St Julians town, there are bars and restaurants nearby which are cheap, if you are active you could walk around the bay and into Bayside Shopping centre, St Julians.
Staff were helpful and all our (little niggles) water on the balcony, no shower gel, bath plug stuck, etc were sorted with ease, and immediately.
At the time of year we went, I can say that it made a lovely long weekend away and was fautless. We didn't use the Spa facilities, but hired a car and saw Malta.
I travelled with my husband and elderly father.
