I try to be as truthful as I can with my reviews, I feel sorry now for Overseas hotels who have to offer All Inclusive to attract holidaymakers, as with the quality of food and drink that hoteliers have to offer other things have to go lacking and in my opinion the things that go lacking are the upkeep and staffing of the hotels. This hotel looks tired, the reception area shows you what a magnificent hotel it must have been in its time but it needs some serious TLC.
The food was fantastic, beautiful tender cuts of meat all the time, the restaurant was excellent the only thing lacking was sometimes you had nearly finished your meal before your drink arrived.
Staff in the hotel are all very pleasant, Tony the barman is a fantastic singer :)
The pool area had ample beds but the pool was too small for my liking although if you have children there are safe kiddy pools. The entertainment was dire and on Friday Saturday and I think Sunday nights you cannot get a seat in the bar as it is taken over by Maltese people all dressed up who come to do formation dancing for their pleasure not our entertainment, I found them rude, trying to push us out of the bar area, no room for any holidaymakers to dance
Our room was massive there were 4 beds in there we paid extra for a superior room which included air conditioning , a fridge, a small sofa, tv and pool view, the bathroom was also very large. The air conditioning was not working sufficiently while we were there though and we were experiencing temperatures between 30 and 36 which for the time of year was VERY hot. I have been to Malta many tinmes before but my last visit was 12 years ago, a lot has changed since then the whole island looks jaded, the bars look tacky the entertainment in the bars are old people who look like they need a makeover. All inclusive causes hard times for everyone. While I used to think Malta was a lovely place for the younger mature person it has now changed into a holiday resort for the elderly in my opinion. I'm not in a hurry to go back
