  • 8.0.Very Good

    The hotel felt like an episode of Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous or Dynasty; very grand in a 1980’s way but hasn’t been updated since. Rooms were a little shabby but the throwback to that era made it fun. It was quieter than usual because of Covid so much of the hotel was closed off. The pool was open and it is the best hotel pool I’ve ever been in anywhere in the world. Their private man-made beach area was great as I love to swim in the sea. The breakfast buffet was amazing.

    5 stars in the past, not now

    This hotel might be 5 stars in the past but not now. The rooms, hall, bars and restaurant need to be remodeled.

  • 8.0.Very Good

    We loved the quiet location, the view from our room balcony, the Spa, the restaurant, the room size and comfort, the thoughtfulness of the room reservation team and prompt action of every staff when you meet them. Improvements could be made on the breakfast buffet (a lot of food options but always the same every day; bread is great but danish are not, no waffle, limited fresh fruit, no hot food besides eggs) and responsiveness over the phone. (Tough to get someone to pick up whereas everyone is so helpful when you meet in person) Overall, a great stay for us, 15mn walk from all we needed (Valetta center, ferry harbor) and quiet enough for some good relaxing time.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Staff were very rude. The property was nice. They were not accomodating to any needs. Seemed that they did not care much about customers.

  • 6.0.Good

    Great location, beautiful view from the restaurant where the breakfast buffet was served, generally a well-appointed hotel. The breakfast was good. The room was nice, though the flush had to be tweaked a bit sometimes to keep it from running continuously. The reason I am giving it a neutral rating is the way they handled a payment issue. We had erroneously booked the room starting one day earlier than our arrival. Upon arrival, we asked the hotel that, since we were going to stay 6 nights rather than 7, if they would charge us only for 6. Most hotels will do this just as a courset, since we were going to stay for a long period anyway. However, the hotel completely refused to do this. I wrote to the management, with the same result. This is just poor service. Otherwise the service was good. Individual staff were very helpful.

    Everything was perfect

    We stayed in a deluxe partial sea view room. Wonderful view, professional/helpful staff, large quiet/comfortable rooms, very complete breakfast buffet. Ten minute walk to Valletta city gates.

    BedRoom was clean and spacious with bathrobes, slippers etc. Buffet Breakfast was very good with a variety of choices to choose from. The shower was a bit tricky especially for big people because the door could not fully open as it was blocked by the sink.
