“A very lovely stay”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

Our stay was from the 7/4/14 to 15/4/14. My family enjoyed our stay here and will come back again. We had a lovely large apartment with two bedrooms en suite and bathroom, lounge/kitchen over looking the sea with four balconies on the fifth floor room 502. We booked HB and only used the well equipped kitchen for making tea. The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. Both my teenagers made full use of the wifi in the reception area and at breakfast. The pool area looked very good but we never used it as it wasn't warm enough.

Thank you for your lovely review.

Very happy to hear you found your apartment to your satisfaction and that you made full use of our free Wifi in the lounge area.

Will inform the staff about your lovely comments.

Since the weather was not warm enough, may i suggest you return at a later date this year to enjoy and make full use of our pool area.

Look forward to hosting you again in the near future.

We've stayed in February 2014, 1 bed apartment on the 4th floor. The apartment was very pleasant, kitchen was spotless, fully equipped, although we didn't have much use of it, staying on HB basis (see my review of The Butcher's Grill Restaurant).
The hotel is very pleasant, clean, quiet, suits every need. The staff is extremely friendly, obliging, can not do enough for you. Free unlimited WiFi in the lobby available at any time, satellite TV, newspapers, cafeteria. Free use of the gym and swimming pool for the hotel's guests. A small market on the 1st floor with a good choice of food, drinks, toiletries and souvenirs at very competitive prices.
There is no night entertainment, but if you fancy a sing song, there are 2 karaoke bars adjacent to the hotel - "Chaplins" (mostly locals) and "Images" for English and Irish folk. Qawra Palace Hotel's dance floor is a short walk away.
We've had a great time, certainly will go back.

We stayed in a sixth floor studio apartment that was clean if basic, with a good view out over the roofs and the sea. Early morning sunshine meant enjoying the balcony was a pleasure first thing but afternoon shade means jerseys in March. The extra blanket was handy and two pillows vital as they were individually slightly tired and shapeless.

We never used the telly or the club swimming pool but found the staff very helpful, warm and welcoming, which made a huge difference as the area itself isn't the best and we wondered at first if we had made a mistake when swopping our week for this location via RCI.

The wifi was fast and free and available in the reception areas but not in the room.

The Butchers Grill restaurant on the ground floor is a really good steakhouse in a South African style.

It took twenty five minutes to drive from the airport and there was ample parking for the hire car outside. Because the island is quite small, we found the location quite handy, particularly for Gozo day tripping.

Room Tip: High up is best and a sea view is a must.

March to May are beautiful months in which to visit Malta if one wishes to avoid the heat of Summer.

Stayed one week in a seaview apartment with superb outlook. Had the B & B package, limited choice but good enough at the price. Staff were really pleasant and helpful. Location just on the edge of the pubs and clubs so could take or leave. Found it difficult to locate - look out for the sign for the Butchers Grill, the on-site restaurant. Indoor pool was very good. Spa great value but book early. Good value mini-supermarket opposite. Buses reliable but uncomfortable for long journey. Hired a car which was incredibly cheap and we saw a lot of the islands. Recommend: Golden Bay and Munchies Café; Qawra Palace Hotel Café; Mdina; Marsaxlokk fishing village; Dingli Cliffs and restaurant; Goxo; Valletta , Café Jubilee is outstanding.
Weather is good enough for walking and sightseeing and great value in March. Overall a really good week away.

I returned to Sunny Coast for a week in March and was warmly greeted by the staff who go out of their way to be helpful and accommodating. The hotel has seen a few improvements since I was there last year. Butchers Restaurant has a South African influence and offers a very good choice of meals. The Spa facilities have also been improved and a range of pampering is available. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the views over the bay are very nice. The kitchen facilities are adequate for rustling up meals as required. The bus stops outside and you can easily explore the island. Wifi is free but only available in the lobby where there is a little café. It is the warm welcome and attention to detail by the staff that make this hotel exceptional. I will be back!

Room Tip: Get a sea view if you can!

Thank you for your review.

The noise from the building works was only temporary and i can assure you it has long since been completed.

From previous reviews our hotel has always been praised for its cleanliness and friendly staff. Other guests who stayed with us during the same period have been nothing but complementary. We do take clients reviews seriously and investigations concerning the room you briefly mentioned have been instigated.

Sea view rooms are subject to availability even when the upgrade has been requested.

Concerning your many other reviews, I am sorry that during your stay you seemed dissatisfied with other establishments you also reviewed. Excluding Incognito's!!!!

Once again we all thank you for your lengthy review.
