We had a week's all inclusive at the end of October. We (2 adults and a teenager) found the hotel to be clean and quiet. If you are looking for pie and chips, and want to get drunk while the kids cause havoc, then this is not the place for you. We believe a holiday is what you make of it and we had a good time, but feel that this hotel is more suitable for older people. There was a good choice of food, but maltese rather than english (one night of the week was maltese menu only, ) and not a lot of traditional english kids food. Chips were every other night, although there was pasta every night. The soups sounded a bit off-putting, such as cabbage and bacon, but were actually delicious, so give them a try.
The rooms were very clean. We were in 311 A and B, a 2 bed apartment as we booked an extra room for our teenager. It was at the front of the hotel, was enormous. It had 2 bathrooms and a lounge with a full size fridge. It was a bit noisy in the morning, but it is not a main road so just local traffic and coaches. The rooms were cleaned daily and the beds changed once during the week that we stayed.
Ask at Reception for the shortcut to Buggiba bus terminal. Its about a 10 min walk and you can get a bus to most places from here. The tour buses are good value. For 15 euros each, you get a 3 hour tour of the north or south of the island and a free boat tour of 1 and a half hours is included.
The hotel has aspects of being a 4 star, such as requesting long trousers be worn in the restaurant at night, and waiter service for evening drinks in the restaurant, but on the whole is more 3 to 3 and a half stars.
The evening entertainment is basic but good (Elvis lives!) There are 3 bars, but from Nov 1st the roof bar is closed, which is a bit of a pain. Also as the roof bar is the afternoon snack bar, after 1st Nov if you miss lunch the only snack available is a pre-packed sandwich. If you order a takout lunch you get 2 sandwiches, 1 bottle of water and 1 apple.
The hotel decor makes it look dark, but we enjoyed our stay and would go again.
