    Upon receipt by the hotel of our comments about size of room, they immediately offered us an upgrade to a fantastic room with views of the sea. They were more than accommodating and incredibly friendly. Highly recommend

    Keep looking

    I stayed off season, so this review does not include beach club access. This is a basic hotel. The location is nice if you need to be in central Sliema or by the ferries for cheap. Although it's a fairly new hotel, it's showing wear and tear. Everything was basic in the room, no frills. The door had damage and didn't seem very secure. Check-in was fine, nothing special. You could smell the pool in the lobby. The bar and restaurant were ok, not the best food and the bar closed early. I'd recommend spending a bit more and finding a different hotel.

    Its a brand new hotel. The stuff are very nice and welcoming. We arrived around noon and asked to get a room earlier, which we got. As this is a new hotel the only minus is that the outdoors pool is not ready yet but we were told it will be ready for the next season

    Room for some improvement. . . .

    Over the past six months I have had lunch/supper at Margaux restaurant which is invariably good, with moments of excellence for a hotel dining room. Fresh ingredients, well prepared and generously served; modestly priced wines for all tastes. This visit I tried a 4 night stay in the hotel which was newly opened in the Spring. On the positive side, the staff are always friendly and ready to help. The issue is that there is still quite a lot to help with: one might have thought initial refit snagging would by now be finished, In our room for example, beside electrical plugs were not secure on the wall; one of the hand basins had a defective plug which only the maintenance man could release each day, and the room air conditioning was stuck at a chilly 17C ( or 'off'). There was some distant drilling in the building after 8am daily - not ideal for lazy mornings. The bed and bedding is of a good quality and the place is super clean. Good showers. `The TV only had international news. Lifts (2 only) seemed slow for a new build. Very convenient location for tourism or business. Probably a little under-staffed. I will continue to use Margaux, but not sure I would stay again.

    Before you go ahead and make the booking, ask them if the construction of the building next door is done, because you’ll wake up every morning feeling like someone is drilling inside your room. If the construction isn’t over, make sure they give you a room on the other side of the hotel where you can’t really hear the construction, or the noise is minimal. The manager was kind enough to offer me another room, but I was already settled in & couldn’t be bothered to switch rooms after 14 hours of traveling. I was exhausted, not only from my trip, but because my construction adjacent room wasn’t ready until 3:40pm, which was 3:30 hours after our arrival. The first 3 days were ok, with the noise considering I had to be up early for my meetings. But on my last day, which was a Saturday, I had decided to sleep in in preparation for my 14 hour return trip back, when I was awoken at 6:55am with what sounded to be a drill right in my ear, on a SATURDAY. In addition, if you’re a fan of room service, or just someone who likes to have their coffee in their room in the morning, you’re fresh out of luck, because there is NO room service. You’re gonna have to go down to the restaurant and pick up your coffee yourself. And if you’re hungry after hours (be it lunch or dinner) you’re fresh out of luck again, so pack up on snacks because in addition to no room service, they don’t serve food in the restaurant after the lunch service is done, and the kitchen is closed. How is this a 4 star hotel?

    Did not like the fact it did not have the typical/standard products in the room, such as: Hair dryer or iron or safety box... Also, the last day had an inconvenience were the fire alarm went off twice while interrupting sleep. Did not appreciate it... also, construction next door - noise since early hours.

  • 4.0.Fair

    the rooms were nice, the location is good and the amenities are also good. But there are a few points that ruined my stay: 1. the staff at breakfast were very strict with everything. My mum was very ill in the room for 2 days and when I went down to grab a yogurt and a bowl they categorically refused to give it to me because apparently they go missing ... as if I payed 1000 euros to stay there only to steel a bowl that is 2 euro in Ikea ... same with taking a fruit after breakfast to eat in the room. Super un friendly and inconsiderate for my mum's health 2. the pool (which is not at the hotel, but a few meters down the street) is always packed with people because they tickets to others from other . hotels to stay at the pool. Which in itself not a problem, but this pool is . tiny and it can not accommodate even the people in the hotel never-mind others from outside.

    Nice hotel for a vacation in the sun

    Very nice room. Good breakfast. Only problem was with housekeeping, which was a bit haphazard: one day we didn’t actually have .any.
