We stayed at the Seabank for the first two weeks in October and had the most fabulous time.
The hotel is located in Mellieha Bay, with a main road separating the hotel from the beach, so if it's generally peace and quiet you're after, it's peace and quiet you'll get!!! There really isn't a lot going on in the area, which really what makes it such a nice place to get away and chill out.
If you want to go out and about and do some sightseeing, then there's a bus stop across the road which gives you access to a very good, inexpensive bus service that enables you easy access to the rest of the island.
Now for the hotel........
We've been returning to the Seabank for 12 years and the hotel just keeps getting better and better with each visit.
The hotel in it's new and improved state is fairly new (2012) and you can't fault it for cleanliness.
The bedrooms are spacious, modern and sleek - it's really nice (and a bit of a novelty) to have plenty of hangers in the wardrobe - this is something that you don't always get in a lot of hotels.
The range of facilities are great - there's a wonderfully huge outside pool with more than enough sunbeds and there are plenty of parasols and shady areas to sit should it get a bit too warm. There is also a great kids pool and play area to keep the little ones entertained.
The Spa offers a good range of pampering services, which are all reasonably priced and they also look after the steam room and sauna, which are a good size.
I would say that this hotel is very good for those with younger children, as it's a very safe environment, with the added bonus of a sandy beach just across the road - there is also a kids club, which will keep them out of mischief!
There is a great animation team at the hotel, who are incredibly cheerful and seem to enjoy their work and there are various activities throughout the day - should you wish to join in, of course!!! They put on a different show each evening in the entertainment dome - they may not always be everyone's cup of tea, but if you don't want to watch it, you certainly don't have to.
As an all inclusive resort, you can effectively eat from 7.30 am through to 10 pm - pretty much all of the meals are buffet style and with such a wide range of different dishes, I defy anyone not to be able to find something they will enjoy. The main restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with the pool restaurant also offering a late breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea. There is also an additional four restaurants - an Italian, an Asian, a Brazilian and a Mediterranean - but you have to pre-book these which is easy to do once you are at the hotel.
The staff all work incredibly hard and work pretty long hours, but they are all working to make sure that the guests have a wonderful and memorable stay.
All of the staff at the hotel are incredibly helpful, from the Hotel Manager, The Executive Chef (slightly bonkers, but an absolute superstar),The Asian Restaurant Chef, the Food & Beverage Outlet Manager, The Spa Manager, all the way to the wonderful cleaners who work so hard to keep the hotel clean.
Can't wait to come back next year xxx
