We have recently returned from a fabulous 2 week holiday at the seabank. I scrutinised trip advisor for hotels in Malta, before booking the Seabank, our holiday company wanted us to change our holiday to a different hotel ( due to upgrade of hotel still being in process) on the advice of other holiday makers via seabanks fb page was advised to book direct with hotel, which I did and am so glad I did.
We we're in a junior suite which was spacious, air conditioning worked well , shower good, two large screen televisions ,we did not use them much except for an odd time and found a kiddies channel tiny pop which our two girls loved, our room was kept very clean
Food & All inclusive
The food in buffet coral restaurant and pool bar was of high standard and delicious and cannot understand anyone's complains , I can only assume they are very fussy eater, the variety and creativity of the chefs were excellent , my 6 year old daughter tried loads of food she had not tasted before including , mini fish and mussels.It was good to eat in different restaurants as well ,although the menus were very similar ( bar food really ) it was nice to be served food for a change.
We really enjoyed the buffet oriental restaurant
Food and drinks on tap all day, well organised and no queuing
Entertainment & kids
This was what made this hotel special. The Animation team were worth their weight in gold. Work hard to entertain all ages from morning to night with high energy and smiles and laughter , from aqua gym and splash dance and body combat and dance classes for me , to water polo and volleyball for my husband , kids mini disco activities and face painting for our girls. They also provided a lot of the entertainment at night which was not to everyone's taste but was lighthearted high energy and entertainment , for those who were not keen on it ? What do they expect , bingo ? , I enjoyed their dancing and music, there was a couple of acts brought in the magician was outstanding and worth seeing.
The FTI kids club was terrific and my girls loved their time there , Vanessa & Jelto were great with kids and I have never used this type of service before but felt my girls were safe we'll looked after and having fun. I believe that FTI may be pulling out this service as more British kids than German , so I hope the seabanks provides and equally excellent service when the time comes
The kids play area and small water slides and pool well set out
Soft play area could be better supervised , we were always watching our children and sat in vista restaurant but my oldest girl got her back bitten ( but I suppose this could happen anywhere)
All staff friendly and helpful and aimed to serve us the client, hard working
Cannot fault the standard of cleaning , public area I noticed specifically , toilets reg being wiped down, also at buffet areas staff always wiping up spllls almost instantly
Two large clean outdoor pools lovely to swim in , although a bit chilly on initial plunge was refreshing, I even got up at 7 some mornings for length swimming and got to use top pool which was great also gym can be used early once cleaners have finished
Indoor pool and jacuzzi a bonus a little chilly at times so could be a bit warmer but a benefit to hotel
Malta is a lovely country and steeped in history , plenty to do and see , beach across the road from hotel , which was nice for a paddle at night also
The Seabank has a feel good factor to it and due to the multicultural mix of holidaymakers , met some lovely people.
We would definitely recommended this hotel and if returning to Malta would stay here again, maybe even next year :-) high five Seabank
