Very good 8.0
Great family friendly hotel
The rooms are comfortable and clean. The staff are friendly and professional. There were some facilities unavailable due to covid but they seem to have put every effort in to still provide a good service. The beach club opposite is really nice and the food it excellent.

Happy in Malta
Wanted to stay in Sliema and this was perfect spot. Loved the Italian restaurant on first floor . Lots to choose from the Sicilian cassata cake is really amazing . I’ve read many complaints about the room views but in all fairness the hotel is a square so not every room can overlook the ocean. We were fine with back room terrace still relaxing with coffee. If you want an amazing view go on the sun deck. Room was very clean air cond was cool. Staff were helpful and very polite , never annoyed by a question. We liked the pool across street to left. It was fine , it’s salt water and very cooling from a hot day. The small restaurant by the pool served like a basic lunch menu but again we liked everything. Very satisfied including the area. The Sliema ferry and boat excursions is a simple 10-15 min walk very easy. Many places to eat in walking distance. The sea is Rocky bring water shoes but there’s a ladder to help if your ok to jump in

Perfect location and view!
Excellent location. Wonderful view! Good AC and ceiling fan. Clean room. Lots of senior citizens stay here, definitely not a “party hotel”. Everything was great, apart from the fact that the chamber maids started knocking on our door at 8 a.m. to come in and clean. Someone knocked on the door at least 3-4 times a day - the maid, the lady who checks the cleaning, the guy who stocks the fridge, etc. Very annoying. But the view and location are SO good!!!

Fair 4.0
In desperate need of a refresh.
The Preluna is an older hotel that is desperately in need of some refurbishment. The photos on the hotel we page are very idealized and do not represent the hotel's current condition. However, it is well-located with in an easy walk to the Sliema waterfront and many very good restaurants. You can choose to have breakfast included in the daily rate. Easy access to the airport. And, the beach club is fantastic. Room 6201 is absolutely disgusting. None of the two-bedroom suites have sea views despite the description on the hotel's Web page. Also, air conditioning is seasonal. We stayed the last week in May and there was no air conditioning throughout the hotel, including the common areas where it became quite oppressive by afternoon. Shameful.
