Exceptional hotel
Pros: 1. The hotel lent us a couple of universal adapters for our stay (free of charge) as we didn't realize Malta were on the UK power plugs and not European! 2. We hired a driver for the day for our group (220 euros) to see the main island of Malta and he was amazing. 3. The buffet breakfast is out of this world. So much variety, good quality, and stations to make onelettes, pancakes and waffles. Cons: 1. The outside of the hotel looks dated and dusty, but the inside is great 2. The service staff at the Tiki bar (adjoining the pool) were terrible. The first time we ate their attitude was rude and unhelpful. The food was not only the most expensive in Malta but also the worst quality. Drinks here are fine but I would not recommend eating here. Another day we were in the pool less than 10m from our towels, cameras, phones which were placed on an empty chair (the entire bar was empty of patrons so I didn't think it would be a problem), but a staff member took our things, moved them and hid them behind something, then when I asked if they had seen anyone take our belongings (thinking they were stolen) she rudely and bluntly said "this is bit the hotel. This is a bar/restaurant and not the hotel swimming pool bar". The bar is located right on the edge of the pool. Was not happy with her justifications or rudeness and lack of consideration about theft concerns

hreat hotel,location
Shower very close to toilet and hand basin limiting ability to open door very far. Breakfast great, pools, indoor and outdor, and gym good. Staff very friendly and helpful. Large number of steps to climb to Valletta or nus can be booked but limited to 10am and 6pm only for transfer. Bus ticket very cheap for week with unlimited use, and busrs easy to use, some were crowded at times. Would stay here again

Won’t ever stay at this hotel again
Location of hotel was good close to old Valletta but not actually in Valletta as stated when I booked. The last day of my six nite stay there was a misunderstanding about my check out day and even though I had expressed to several staff that I extended my stay due to a 2:10AM flight. While I was on a tour on my last day not returning to the hotel until 2:45PM they moved everything out of my room including money and jewelry from my safe not waiting until I returned to clear up the misunderstanding. This was a stressful and humiliating experience and for a five star hotel totally unacceptable. Management took no responsibility for this rash action saying they needed my room as the hotel was full. I do want to say that the head of security had some compassion and really tried to be helpful as did the man who helped me with my luggage the others at the desk including the manager wanted to make this my fault with no good resolution. Before l left they did find a inferior room for me and after wanting to charge me more for it than the superior I had been in they decided to make it the same price,the girls at the front desk at the-end of this nightmare actually tried to be pleasant and helpful. I guess I should add that I am a 75 year old woman traveling alone.

The hotel is great and so are the staff. The facilities are great to use and the hotel is 10 minute walk to the main City Centre. I am going back in October and I'm looking forward to my stay with my with family.
