The room we stayed in was kept clean by a lovely lady, she worked hard, clean towels daily, bathroom cleaned every day, but the smell of bleach was overwhelming.
We were all inclusive, what a waste of money that was. The food was repetitive, breakfast was the worst, scrambled egg that was dark in colour!, sausages that looked like they had come out of a jar and someone had try to fry them. All the milk was uht, and the cereal must have been the rejects from aldi/lidal's and the only fruit we ever saw was melon, yet fruit was plentiful in Malta.
The pool was not the cleanest of pools, lots of flys in the water and there was a cover missing from a filter at the bottom of the pool.
we counted 5 cats wondering around the pool area looking for scraps, and saw them several times asleep on the tables where people sat to eat and have drinks.
On return to the U.K. I visited my G.P. concerned about what i thought was a rash or prickly heat spots, i was told "your covered in flee bites" NICE!!
The location of the Hotel is not good if you have children or find steep hills a problem then stay clear. Yes the views are nice, but to get anywhere was a bloody hard hike up and down hills to go to the bus stops or down to the nearest beach which was all down hill and a good 10 minute walk, which meant 20 minutes back up the hill.
So, if you want to loose weight by way of not eating, plenty of steep hill walking, then book this hotel, but if you are looking for a cheap hotel and are on a budget keep looking, and stay clear of this hotel. Yes it is 3star, but how the hell, god knows!.
Malta we enjoyed, and found things good value for money.
A weeks bus pass was 12 euros and unlimited, The bus sight seeing was not worth the money, you can see just as much sitting on a bus.
In Mellieha there is a boat trip by a company called "English rose" this was 12 euros and it is FANTASTIC. 4 hours + and it takes you to some of the most amazing spots around the Island, and when you stop at the world famous blue lagoon you can snorkel using there equipment free of charge. Food and dring on the boat was cheap too. so it not worth the hassle taking food and drink with you, they will make you sandwiches of your choice freshly.
Would i go back to Malta.... YES. For the sunshine, the diving, and the people are so friendly. Get the Maro Polo guide book off of amazon ( £3.99 ) delivered free. it hi lights the good places to visit.
So enjoy Malta, but please be carefull before you book cheap hotels. Ciao
