Returned to the uk on the 1 April after 14 nights at the Seabanks . firstly, arrived aprox 8.45pm and checked in fairly quickly but were not given room keys til after we had eaten. ( fine). We had emailed the hotel about a week before and asked for a top floor room, and that's exactly what we got. ( room No 6423 ) on the 6th floor. beautiful room overlooking the pool and surrounding countryside. The room was very bright and comfortable and was always kept spotlessly clean. Could do with some more decent English channels on the tv , there are 2 true movie channels which can drive you mad after a few days.
The food in the main restaurant was excellent plenty of choice and the deserts were fab, also you can get beer and wine ( the red wine was far to cold, try the rose instead ) help your self basis. The Brazilian was chaotic because of the delay between the different meats being brought round, we actually walked out halfway through because we wanted to eat together in here you cant because if you don't like the same things to eat you will never eat at the same time. The Asian was really good we ate there several times. The Italian was not good, the place itself is poor, as is the food, same pasta as in the main restaurant.
The bar is ok and do quite a good selection of drinks ( premium brands are extra ) but the cocktails are very poor the staff do not know how to mix them ! . There are 2 tvs in the bar and they show british premier league football, even 3 oclock Saturday kickoffs ( brilliant ).
There is a late breakfast from 10 til 12 but is pretty poor as the food was always stone cold, but okish if you have a hangover.
We could not use the outdoor pool as was too cold , perhaps a couple of solar panels to warm it up a tad ?. Indoor pool was small and far to crowded.
The staff were always very efficient and friendly.
The location is great , beautiful area and buses plentiful and cheap.
Popeyes villages is walkable, about 20 mins and is very picturesque great photos.
Do check out the rest of the island by bus ie Sliema , Valletta etc 1.50 euro for whole day.
The one major negative point about this hotel is it gets mega busy at weekends lots of locals descend on it ,and we were unfortunate as we also had 2 public holidays in the 2 weeks that we were there, would not go back for that reason ( hence only 4 stars ), we are in our 60s so perhaps its an age thing.
