Dolmen Resort Hotel
Ranked #2 of 14 Hotels in St. Paul's Bay
Reviewed March 10, 2013

enjoyed a very nice 5 day break at the Dolmen - half board . We normally stay in a time share suite at this hotel - so the room without a view was a first for me. The room was very nice, clean,tidy and well laid out. A well stocked bar fridge was a very nice suprise. Beds were very comfortable and the daily cleaing etc: was of a very high quality.
The room did not have pool/sea view but it did not detract in any way from the wonderful stay I enjoyed. Breakfast was extremely good - as was the evening meal - great food choice for all palates.
Entertainment at night was not that exciting but there are plenty of local venues to discover.
Would recommend this hotel to any visitor to Malta as it is in a good central location for transpport

Room Tip: sea or pool room view perhaps

Priced for seniors hence nothing fancy. You are within walking distance of good resturants. Rooms okay but dated and need updating. Food is trageted towards senior IE bland. Food is okay but after a few days cabin fever sets in.

Room Tip: Sea view or nothing.

We stayed at The Dolmen at the end of a two-week tour travelling over land and sea from the UK to Malta via France, Spain and Italy. This was the largest hotel but the first thing that struck me when we arrived was the musty smell. I'm not sure what caused it but it smelled damp.

Our room was on the ground floor and had a massive balcony. It overlooked the main pool. We were slightly off season so there was plenty of space around the pool most afternoons, which was great. The room was large, comfortable and very clean.

We booked in for a massage at the spa, and that was pleasant. We found all the staff generally helpful and friendly. The food was also very good.

The things that concerned us were the strange mouldy smell and when we arrived and asked to have our bags stored until our room was ready, they were "stored" in reception. Not very secure. There were lots of dead cockroaches around by the beach bar and pool.

Generally I think our holiday was tarnished by a couple of unfortunate incidents in Valletta that really put us off Malta completely.

Room Tip: Go for a sea view.

This is a large, resort-type hotel in Bugibba. The hotel offers a range of good facilities including a small indoor pool and an excellent spa. The bedrooms are well-equipped but make sure you ask for one with a sea view. These rooms have a much better outlook.

I'm lying here on the last night of a weeks stay in the Dolmen hotel.
Fantastic suite with a stunning view of St. Paul's bay and the numerous hotel pools. Room cleaned each day to a very high standard. Hotel staff exceptional, multilingual and nothing too much trouble. Hotel location couldn't be better. Hotel food varied and plenty of choice but a little underwhelming. Think they cater for older people's tastes. Lots of upgrading going on around the hotel which is starting to look a little tired. Nice lobby and Temple Bar with excellent happy hour 7-8pm. Wireless Internet 3.50 euros per hour is bobbins. Won't connect to iTunes or Amazon( lots of Internet cafes and bars with free wi-fi close to hotel.
Nice hotel. With a bit of effort from owners could be top hotel. Staff are it greatest asset.

Although it was only the end of Feb the hotel was very busy and obviously well liked by the locals.
We stopped bed & breakfast and again the breakfast room was busy but the efficient friendly staff ensured that there were always tables available. Breakfast is self-service. Wide ranging choise, English or continental and the food is very good.
The hotel is clean and has a good selection of services.
Clen hotel, good food and friendly staff - ticks alot of boxes and if we returned to this area we would use this hotel again.
