My wife and I have just returned from a weeks stay at the Dolmen. We looked up this hotel on Trip advisor and were not disappointed. One of the tips was to email beforehand to request a room on the 5th or 6th floor as they had the best views, to request a fridge in the room and a double bed. With in 10 minutes of sending my email through Trip Advisor I had a reply confirming our requests.
On our arrival we were given room 602 which was great with spectacular views. We arrived about 4pm and there were two twin beds and the fridge wasn't working. On phoning reception a member of staff came up to the room and immediately requested a change of bed and a fault report on the fridge to be sorted out the next day which both were.
We stayed on a Bed and Breakfast basis which is what we like as we like to try various eating places.
The breakfast was really good and plenty of various foods. We ate at the Al-a-Carte restaurant twice and were really impressed with the food and the service.
It was my wife's birthday whilst we were there, and we were pleasantly surprised when an envelope was put under the door in which was a birthday card and a voucher for a free bottle of wine to be used in the Vintage Bar which was a nice touch.
The hotel facilities are superb, the location is perfect for everything you need and the resort just right for all activities.
The staff were very helpful and friendly and even when we had to depart at 4am the breakfast room was open so you could get a cup of tea/coffee and even some ham and cheese if you wanted it.
Would definately recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms 601 to 603 are on the top floor with great views and large balconies. A/C unit was a bit noisy...

Just returned from a week at the Dolmen- very pleased with the hotel, food and staff. A quick mention also for the Abyss diving centre which has a base at the hotel - I found them to be very good and the hungarian dive guide Zoltan was very good. This dive centre is probably not the best for the novice diver- but for experienced divers it is great.

We have just returned from our holiday at the Dolmen hotel in Malta. Would definately advise booking a sea view room as we didn't and were very disappointed. We did ask to upgrade though, and for €24 a night extra, we had a superb sea view and a much bigger room. We stayed in room 373. The food was lovely and although the breakfast was always the same, the dinner choice was varied daily. Our room was cleaned daily and we always had fresh towels. The cleaning staff were very friendly and always greeted us when we walked by. The reception staff were generally very friendly and helpful with a couple of exceptions. The bus station is literally around the corner about 2 minutes walk. We bought our daily ticket for €2.60 each, which can be used all day, all over the island. The hotel will supply pool and beach towels free of charge. Overall, we very much enjoyed our stay in Malta and are looking forward to returning.

Room Tip: Ensure you book a sea view room. Would recommend 373. It was a large room with two double beds, a po...

Nous y avons passé 15 jours, mon épouse et moi.
Ce fut un séjour très, très agréable dans cet hotel !
Tout y est parfait (ou presque) la gentillesse et le professionnalisme du personnel, la qualité des repas, la propreté dans l'hotel.
Probablement le meilleur hotel de l'ile

The management and staff at the dolmen have certainly outdone themselves in making their guests feel special and at home. Our service was top notch and they went out of their way to help make our stay a memorable one.We found the rooms to be very actractive and useful. They were very clean. Out on the balcony, we enjoyed many a sunset, and the views are great, especially the small islands and the gorgeous mediterranean. The spa is a great place to revigorate yourself. This was about the fifth time we stayed at this hotel, and are looking forward to our next visit. If you are going to Malta and want a piece of home, visit the Dolmen Hotel. I would say one of the best in Europe.

Room Tip: We stayed on the sixth floor and the evening breeze from the sea was very cooling at night.

Staying there is like staying with family! We stay there from now on. They go out of their way to accommodate you. I would always refer the dolmen to anyone going to Malta. The food and service is above what you expect from a hotel. They have themes each night which makes you feel like you are all over the world experiencing every countries delicious dishes.
