Good for the price
Only had the AC shut off for the first days, but other than that it was pretty good for the price. Food is average, would recommend not doing the all inclusive

Exceptional 10.0
Very breathtakingly beautiful!
I have been traveling 8 countries in the last 6 weeks, absolutely the best breakfast. Meat (bacon) was my favorite. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Oh yes the heat in my room was MARVELOUS!!

Mediocrity at its finest
The air, fridge and wifi didnt work making for a less than stellar 16 hour stay. The breakfast was average and had the staff not been EXCELLENT all-the-way-around I would’ve asked for a full refund.

Hotel room was clean and large, comfy beds, nice pool area, disappointed in the area though, quite dirty with rubbish lining every street and thousands of cig butts everywhere

Poor 2.0
Worst hotel. Don’t waste your money here.
It was one of the worst hotels I’ve been to. The rooms didn’t have working WiFi and felt muggy and not clean. I went to the manager to let him know of the problem and he told me to try another room and I did. The other room had working WiFi but also smelled muggy and the sheets smelled like they hadn’t been washed. The beds were hard and uncomfortable. The nighttime manager amine was very rude in getting the problem solved. Also, we booked a taxi to the airport which costs 25 euros. It was a bus with other people as well. I thought it was our own personal taxi. I could have used a taxi service app that would have charged me the same and gotten me there faster then the bus driver who was on the phone.

Poor 2.0
Rude Front office Staff, Room not clean.
Front desk lady (Asian) extremely rude at checkout. Bedding was gross (bed spread) and room wasn’t cleaned during my stay. On leaving, I asked for a Taxi and was told there was only one option and it would be €12 more than what I paid to get from airport to hotel and it couldn’t be there for 90 minutes. I would not have made my flight so I googled and called a taxi on internet that was at hotel in 15 minutes and charged me same as what I paid. The driver informed me that the hotel has arrangement where they take €10 commmission from one company so they don’t offer or give out other Taxi numbers. I don’t have a problem with their arrangent to make money but when one of your clients is going to miss a flight, it’s ridiculous to not let them know there are other options. Malta is beautiful but I would not recommend staying in this hotel.

Awesome Staff make this a 5 Star review
Wonderful spacious room with balcony. Everything was sparkling clean and the staff were sooo helpful. Carmela the amazing evening bar manager is an absolute credit to the hotel and if there was an employee of the year award she should win it. She could not do enough to help us and bent over backwards to ensure we enjoyed any time we spent in the bar. Great buffet breakfast with lots of variety.
