White Dolphin Holiday Complex
Reviewed April 5, 2014

We stayed 4 days in White Dolphin Complex for our honey moon. It was perfect: location, sea view, reception, flat. Thanks a lot to the hotel manager who bent over backwards to make us have an unforgettable stay. We recommand this complex with no hesitation!

We stayed at white Dolphin in March 14.
We have stayed in many places in Malta but this was the worst.
On arrival was told we were late! Transfer and traffic out of our control!!
Staff not friendly at all.
Room dirty.
Patio door did not close.
Water did not work.
Tv did not work.
Signs saying silence after 11pm but bar/restaurant full of Maltese who have no respect for paying guests.Very noisy late at night.
I would not recommend this accommodation to anyone.
Malta has also gone down hill the Maltese do not want us there they charge us more for busses than locals also food/drinks there is one price for them and one for us the tills even have a button on relating to this.
We have travelled to many many places around the world but would never go back to Malta.
We advise find alternative accommodation than the White Dolphin it is not at all good they dont even supply toilet rolls.....
Due to noise you can not sleep.

Dear Guest,

I would like to thank you for finding the time to write a review on tripadvisor.com.

Kindly note that we did not recieve such reviews or comments since we re-opened in March. Please check booking.com reviews.

Firstly, we never told you that you were late. I stated in a humouristic way that 'they have been waiting for you all day' referring to your parents who waited for you for some time in our patio and they were very much looking forward to see you.

Surprisingly enough, in your review you are stating that it is not the case and I will assure you that we are friendly people

In relation to the television, we had a fault for less than 16 hours in one of the main supplies but then after it was all resolved.

For any prospective clients, I suggest that in case that in case that there will be something that you are not happy about, kindly let us know straight away.

On a separate note, while staying in Apt 105, you left your mobile phone in the apartment. Kindly contact me on charlot.whitedolphin@gmail.com so that we will be able to send it over.

In case that you have further queries and require clarification, kindly do not hesitate to contact me.

Kind regards,

Charlot Abela

My friend and I stayed here for a week in September 2013.

When we arrived we found out at that a mistake had been made with our room and they could not find our booking, which was slightly worrying, however, they put us at ease, sent us down to the the little bar/restaurant/cafe to sit and have a drink while they sorted it out.

We were shown to our apartment which was a lot more spacious that we expected. It was very clean and had a superb view of the bay to the right and straight ahead to the med through the buildings.

There was a substantial kitchen area with all the utensils and crockery you would need, a dining table, dresser and a good size wardrobe.

We were also pleasantly surprised to see that there were signs around the apartments asking for no noise after 11pm, as we were worried that it could potentially be noisy when a coach load of German teenagers arrived mid week. But they caused no trouble or noise at all.

The 'bar' was open from breakfast through to about midnight. Although we didn't eat there, the food looked good and on more than one occasion noticed groups of Maltese dining there, so it must have been pretty good.

The location was also good. Mere minutes to a bus stop and about a 15 minute walk into Bugibba itself. There are a few bars near by, one really nice local type one which was more Maltese, which is right on the bay front, and another just before the bus stop. (which was run by a rather over enthusiastic English gentleman who sings terrifying karaoke at you).

I would definitely stay at the White Dolphin again. The staff are very friendly, location is excellent, view is lovely and accommodation very clean.

The location is excellent. St. Pauls bay - has some restaurants in walking distance. There was no view from the room though the hotel is right across the bay. They had a set breakfast which wasnt good. Edible at the best. There is a bus stop close by where you can take a bus for the ferry terminal for blue lagoon and golden sands beach. All in all for the price it is an excellent value for money.

I found very good reviews about this place before booking and have not been disappointed. A very spacious room with everything that you need – TV, kitchen, AC, balcony. The staff was very helpful. They even let us store our luggage after we checked out and let us use the relaxation lounge after departure. Definitely worth the money and would sure recommend it to my family and friends visiting Malta.

A good 3 star complex.The room was very clean and comfortable. We had an apartment overlooking the pool. With a lovely view of the Maltese Coast. Staff were very friendly, they gave us some good tips on how to make the most of our stay in Malta. We rented a car and parking space was not a problem in the area. Very Central to the best beaches and located in a quiet neighbourhood. I say it was a perfect location. I enjoyed it. I'll be back.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a sea view.
