Reviewed July 19, 2013

The wife and I have just returned from a week in this fantastic hotel. Staying bed and breakfast. The hotel was great and staff excellent. The breakfast was very good and loved the idea of cooking your eggs to your liking while you waited (omelettes, poached) which didnt take long to do at all. Sitting outside on the terrace eating breakfast looking out to sea was a fantastic view.

The idea of using all the pools between the 2 hotels was excellent as well, especially if you didnt want to be round the big pool with all the children, there were plenty others to go and find.

The restaurants in the hotel were very nice and service was very good. Free wifi was a plus, although it worked better outside.

Our room was on the first floor, (we asked for high up but didnt get it) but it wasnt a problem at all. The mini bar in your room was checked every day and always stocked and was reasonably priced for a hotel.

The staff in the Pool Bar would come round every 45 minutes asking if you wanted more drinks which was very good service aswell. The rooms were cleaned and made up everyday. Staff were always polite and friendly.

A very nice hotel, and a good distance from everything. If you want to go clubbing its close enough to you, but its also far enough away not to hear the noise. Fantastic restaurants not to far away and a very small beach (shingle) at the bottom of the road which was 11 euro to have 2 beds and shade for the day.

Would definately stay here again

Room Tip: Ask for higher up, as reception is already on level 3.

This is a very nice hotel.
Here with wife and 2 daughters.
Didn't really take advantage of the Spa or watersports,just chilled out around the pool and the odd day trip (Valletta is wonderful World Heritage site). Just what the doctor ordered.
Staff were very attentive and nice,particularly the Dutch internee on reception.
Mini bar,tv and wifi good (although I could go insane watching the same news items on a loop from BBC world).
Breakfast on the terrace a view to die for. Staff whip the used plates away not just because they're very good,but to stop the local birds (like sparrows) feeding. Not a problem.
Food very good,but bound to get a bit same-ee after a week.
Town just at the right distance-not so close it's a problem,but not too far to walk.Plenty of eateries to choose from. Very 'nightlife' orientated,or am I getting old ?
Not a beach with this hotel- if that's a problem for you go elsewhere,but there is one 5 mins walk away.
Now for the downside;
Difficult to sleep in the heat - either I didn't get the hang of the air conditioning or it was struggling to cope.
Left the patio doors open one night.It's party central across the very small bay (c 400m) so nightclub in your bedroom til early hours.
Scraping of furniture on floor ajacent to us woke us.This is a downside of tiled floors.
These weren't major problems,just minor irritations.
But the whole experience for me was spoiled by one bizarre incident by the pool;
I was standing alone (nobody within yards of me) against a guardrail ,minding my own business at closing time when I turned towards the pool bar (about 50 feet away) to see a member of staff throw a roll of bin bags at my head.Sounds almost comical but picture a thick roll of bin bags hitting you in the face - it could do some serious damage.Fortunately it flew past my right ear and travelled another 50 feet or so before landing on the quayside below. I stood motionless,staring at the pool bar (in disbelief) until the staff popped up from below the bar,giggling like naughty children,before popping down again. I made my way down to the quayside to retrieve the roll in order to present it back to the pool bar. On my
way back I was headed off by the pool bar manager (?) who made a lame excuse about a mistake and mumbled something about 'the worst day of my life' before I gave him the roll. He obviously thought I was off to the hotel manager to report it. I didn't want to be responsible for another youth unemployment statistic in Europe,but it left a nasty taste in the mouth.
This kind of experience is bound to colour your memories of a hotel no matter how good it was elsewhere. I told the guy I hadn't paid €2500 of my hard earned money to have bin bags thrown at my head. All the hard work of the other staff all week was undone by one idiot.

Came home last week after a beautiful stay at the Marina Hotel. After landing at the airport it was 20 Euro for a taxi to the Hotel which we found reasonable. The service at the hotel was fantastci. Check-in was friendly, and straight forward. Waiters/Waitresses were all very polite and had good service as well as the housekeeping staff who were all very friendly and fantastic at making up the bedroom. We stayed on the 1st floor with a bayview room. Although being on a higher floor would have been our preference, this did not disappoint. It was lovely to open the balcony doors and see the fresh, blue sea. The pool areas are also very clean and there are no lack of sunbeds. Staff are there to help put up the umbrellas for shade too. Food in the Italian restaurant within the hotel was delicious - a salmon salad I had for lunch would be recommended. I would like to mention a Thank you to Matthew at the front desk who recommended a restaurant (Barracuda) in nearby Balluta Bay for us to dine out on our last night. It was amazing! Loved it. Matthew booked it for us and organised our taxi and when we got there we had a table outside on the balcony. Should we return to Malta again, we wouold definitely stay at The Marina.

This hotel is well located with great sea views. Our room was noisy though as it was located just inside the connecting door from lobby to rooms corridor.Breakfast and dinner were nice and the bedroom was spacious.

Room Tip: Dont get a room by the connecting door from the lobby.

The Marina Hotel is part of the Corinthian Beach resort at St. George's Bay in the St. Julian's area of Malta, the rooms provide an excellent variety of facilities including a private balcony overlooking the bay, satellite TV and free Wi-fi. The hotel is conveniently located just a short stroll away from the bars and night-life of St. Julians but far enough away to be quite and relaxing, the food and service is first class as are all the other facilities in this highly recommended hotel, well worth a thought if you visit Malta.

Our first time in Malta in 2011. Nice hotel with 4 star standard. Good pool area but use the pool in the nearby Corinthia hotel to maximize your experience. This is included in the stay.

Friendly staff and good restaurants within the pool area. Grill 3301 is highly recommended!

Good breakfast with an amazing view on the terrace.

3rd time and love this hotel. Most beautiful hotel in the south off the island. The best thing about this hotel is the fact you can use the San George next door. Which is connected through a gate. 2 secs it's takes to go through. The staff are friendly. Cafe 24 sells nice food and quick service with a smile :) can't wait too go back. Couldn't fault it. Here's too my 4th visit
