6/10 Good

Although rated 5 star, it was rather run down and in urgent need of refurbishment. Our room had a missing shelf in shower. but bathroom was generally in need of modernising as shower itself was still wirh cubicle. The worst thing was the broken and rusty ladder at the Lido. I cut myself against it and had to take a tetanus booster. The capsules of Nespresso machine in room were not the original but of an inferior brand. Breakfast was not typical of a 5 star hotel as it lacked good cheeses (only processed was available), there was no prosciutto crudo or genuine cakes.The general upkeep of the premises was also poor with the Maltese stone in all areas needing cleaning as it was no longer white and clean. At check out, we had to ask for receipt of payment, although it had already been taken from our card and we were not asked how our stay went.

Relaxing Stay
Very pleasant stay. Mattress was a bit softer than we are accustomed to, but the room was large and quite comfortable overall. Restaurant and bar service was friendly but inexperienced.

Simply the best!
This is our favourite hotel in the world! It has recently been upgraded with beautiful gardens and redecorated bedrooms. Very comfy beds- I checked out the mattress to see if I can buy one- called Windsor but made in Malta! Another lovely stay with much use of the beautiful spa pool and lovely breakfasts outdoors by the carob tree, with very friendly cats as well! The best relaxing place ever…oh and great evening meals too!

Ta Cenc is a wonderful place to relax. In spite of stormy weather we had a great time; the spa pool is well heated and a lovely setting, and the food was excellent. We have been staying here for 8 years but never in the winter before. The experience was just as enjoyable as on a summer’s day. We’ll be back again in the spring! Ps we love the friendly cats!

A fabulous place to stay, the staff are so helpful and friendly while giving you enough space to enjoy the serene surroundings. The only drawback to the whole place are the en suite bathrooms which are tired and in my case had a shower that didn’t work well.

2/10 Poor

Upon checkin I asked for a room upgrade seeing the hotel was pretty empty and the receptionist abruptly told me ‘I don’t give upgrades’ without even looking up at me. The room was very basic for the price I paid. Mattress were two singles joined together and all night we kept falling in the middle, which made them open up and had me sinking in the middle! No room service menu in the room, so I called for one and it never arrived! The sunbeds were so uncomfortable that the wooden frame would plunge in your back that it hurt to lay on them and they were filthy with no towels available to put on them. The breakfast was as basic as can be! We ordered some nibbles with our drinks and they never arrived either. I don’t know how this hotel is 5 star with such bad service and mediocre finishing as and ambience. Definitely not worth the $200 a night we paid! We left very disappointed for what was supposed to be a quick luxury weekend getaway, I definitely don’t recommend it!
