Reviewed March 30, 2014

We stayed at this hotel all inclusive and for the price we paid we cannot complain all inclusive starts from 12 till 12 food was basic but edible, no snack available at all between meals. Room again basic but OK we had a air-conditioner leak and the bed was soaked, pool was small, hotel has probably the best views in Malta. Staff were nice and friendly, overall was OK for what price we paid

Room Tip: Pool view for the excellent views

I stayed at this hotel recently and found it o be great value for money. The rooms were quite good and the views are excellent with an elevated view over Mellieha bay. I've re booked to stay there again this March.

Room Tip: Although all rooms offer a sea view try to get a room to the front of the hotel as these rooms have...

The view on arrival was so spectacular we thought we'd hit the jackpot for our one night stay. How wrong we were! Nothing else about the hotel was acceptable - not the room furnishings, not the heating, not the bathroom, nothing! What wasted space!

Just home yesterday from a fabulous stay at the Panorama over Christmas. We arrived Christmas Eve and left New Years Eve.
The Reception area was nicely done and plenty of seating areas with a small bar. Obviously recently refurbished, nice and comfortable, and spotlessly clean. The views from the hotel have to be the best on the island. Almost all the rooms have a sea view looking out over Mellieha Bay and right across to Comino and Gozo. Breathtaking!

Kudos to Joe, the owner, he leapt into action when upon our arrival we discovered that we had lost our passports somewhere between the airport and the hotel. (Bus methinks) He phoned around and managed to find the bus driver and then arrange for him to drop them off at another hotel. We had them back within the hour. Bravo!

We were a little dubious about the hotel when we first arrived. Our room was 406 which was one of the smaller ones and quite cramped, though plenty of wardrobe space and drawers. The bed was dreadful, and the bathroom was looking tired. We slept well the first night as we were exhausted, but the second night was a little nightmarish, mostly due to the mattress having seen far more life than should be expected of it and my other half having a nasty cold and cough which bounced me about all night. We spoke to Joe (the owner) and he promptly switched us to another room with twin beds. This time on the second floor, room 203. This room definitely had the WOW factor and we spent 4 delightful days there.

The food - breakfasts were very repetitive; Day 1 sausages, scrambled eggs and baked beans; Day 2 Bacon, boiled eggs and beans; Days 1 & 2 repeated ad naseum. We were on the 'All-Inclusive' but were out all day every day so can't comment on the lunches. We did however have dinner each evening. We were disappointed that we didn't have more Maltese dishes, and the food was mostly British-type recognizable fare. On the whole the meat dishes were good, the fish dishes tended to be overcooked and dry, whilst the ice cream was always left out too long and was sloppy unless you ate promptly at 6.30pm. Same cheese every evening was not the greatest idea, and we saw the same chocolate cake 3 nights running. For us not our favourite part of this vacation, but that however is the only negative thing I would say about the Panorama, nor were we there for the food.

The staff and the atmosphere created by them and their very many repeat guests more than makes up for anything it may lack otherwise. Warm, welcoming and friendly with ready smiles and a wish to help and please make this the special hotel that it is. Special thanks go to Ramona who is very conscientous taking great care of the details, watching and overseeing everything in the Restaurant; Sanja was just everywhere with such great positive energy - in the bar, the Restaurant and even cleaning rooms, the energiser bunny has nothing on her; Joe and Ray always there with great big smiles to help out, answer questions, fill your glass etc. Everyone so wanting to make it special and comfortable for each and every guest.

We had read all the reviews on this hotel and didn't have a single problem with noise nor humming or anything like that. The room was cleaned every day, towels were changed, beds made. Couldn't fault the service.
Location - perfect!! Not wanting to be in one of the young, noisy resorts, this was fabulous. Mellieha is close enough to get to everywhere quickly and easily with nice little shops and restaurants and fab views. I wouldn't bother stay anywhere else.

This hotel has a very high percentage of repeat clients, and they keep going back year after year for weeks at a time, so the Panorama is definitely doing lots of things right. Well done and YES we do hope to be back soon.

Just returned from a 5 night break, the staff couldn't be more helpful, all work exceptionally hard but this doesn't stop them being really kind and considerate of everyone's needs. Wonderful family run hotel which I highly recommend. The view over the bay really is fantastic, so being high up does mean that you will need to be reasonably agile. Hope to visit again soon. Happy New Year to all the staff and my new friends at Panorama.

Hi' Mark from Clacton-on-sea Essex,stayed at Panorama hotel between 29/10/13 to 12/11/13. Small staff team but attentive and helpful with guests. Manager was away on holiday while I was there but they carried on very professionally some work very long hours! Bev, Alex etc but really lovely people and new receptionist (day) very helpful. Right the hotel! Fantastic view was in 414 right side facing bay 4th floor on side of building still great view of bay. Room twin with sea view was very clean( thanks Alex and cleaning team! Furniture good quality, decoration good touch up on paintwork round balcony door needed but acceptable wear and tear. Bathroom great! All white sparkly and all fixtures including hair dryer Woking most importantly water was hot when you needed it for showers washing etc just need to run little while. Bed furniture was good but mattresses in my room were a little worn as uncomfortable mid springs and could do with soon replacing. Plenty of daylight and sunshine entering room through windows. TV is okay for those odd rainy days.Many different international guests but No moaning Brits while I was there just lots enjoying their stay! this is a very intimate quite hotel but fast turn over of some guests with others staying longer. Lounge very nice furniture, bar , tv tables and chairs. Restaurant is good basic breakfast that alternates over two days but really good never had a jippy tummy ever! I only did bed and breakfast but those around me who did all inclusive seemed very happy. Furniture in restaurant tables were good solid no wear and tear, chairs little worn need recovering, but very comfortable, decoration very good, excellent on cleanliness and that stunning view of bay makes this hotel stands out. Never used the pool but it's clean and in good condition. All in all this is a lovely hotel, think there has been some recent refurbishment from talking with other guests and the I house handyman responds quickly to all problems when informed by staff. Unfair criticism yes few cats you either like them or you don't but not a problem! Didn't see any mess"Outside hotel/terrace was very clean. Some scratched graffiti in lift but lift works fine! Always some vandals where ever you go! And floor hall carpets only bit of hotel with carpets were little old but clean odd bit chewing gum. But hoovered regularly and good condition these are heavy wear areas after all.
So summing up! Outstanding value but shop around most guests come via mercury direct or Chevron and seemed very happy with what they got deal wise for their money. I came via Thomas Cook (shop booking) and flew with Thompson airways so bit more expensive and no rep but still good value. Don't' expect 5 star and all the bells and whistles! But this is a great hotel and if you want a quite base and then visit rest of the island then fantastic place to be. Melllieha is a wonderful place and I'll be back soon and staying at this hotel!

Room Tip: Winter side! Summer front! Top floor littltle bit of air con noise in some rooms (hummimg)
