Dolmen Hotel Malta, St. Paul's Bay
All you need for great satisfection
Everything was just great. The hotel has all you might need, including electric reduction which they charge for. Breakfast is rich to choose from, there's plenty of fruits included, too. Spa is quite convenient with sauna and small pool. Parking was considerably easy in the street nearby. Bed is comfortable and view from the hotel to the pool and sea was splendid. Highly satisfied.

Nice hotel with no a/c
We stayed two nights in this hotel and the facilities were nice, though under construction. The worst part, is that the air conditioner did not work. I expected a refurbished hotel to have functioning air conditioning. We told the front desk while we went to lunch, and they assured us it would be serviced. As we came back, we were told the job was "completed". When we returned to the room, it was still about 90°F (32°C) in the room. The technician came up and said "It is working, I hear the air blowing" but it was blowing warm air and the room was hot. I told him we had it set to 5°C and the exiting air was not 5°C, he told me that they set it, not us. I went downstairs and talked to management before dinner, he did not know that we did not set the temp, but agreed that the room was very hot. He promised to have some fans delivered while we were out. He had one delivered and we had to request a second.

Great location at a great price with all the amme!
Dolmen is a great resort. It is in the process of renovations and has a little bit of construction noise but nothing that bothered us. The pools are fabulous, breakfast was good and the casino is nice. The resort is directly across from sandy beach and in a great area of St. Paul's Bay within a few minutes walking distance to bus stop, restaurants, shops, and bars. It's also fairly close to walk to the harbor to catch boat and ferry tours. I would definitely stay here again!!

Dolmen Hotel Malta, St. Paul's Bay
I cannot recommend the Dolmen
The Dolmen is a tired hotel in a tacky tourist area. While the upgraded rooms have a nice view of the Mediterranean, there is really no reason to stay here. It would be a bit like staying at Coney Island years after its prime - lots of semi-naked tourists walking to and from the water with lots of kids and mediocre restaurants. The beach is rocky and awful. The hotel is not near any of the many interesting and historic sites and areas in Malta. Neither the lobby or the elevators have air conditioning which means that they can get really hot since it is well over 90 degrees in the summer. The elevators were particularly stifling. The AC in the room could not keep up with the outside temperature. The only reason I can think to come here is to pay for an upgraded room and sit on the patio and look at the water. But at some point you have to leave the room :) Malta is a really interesting island and there are better areas to stay.

Very Good8.0
Middle of the road stay
Our room seemed a bit unfinished. There were a couple of holes in the walls and the toilet leaked. On the plus side, the room was very spacious and the balcony had a nice view. The breakfasts and dinners were delicious with many options.
