5 night stay
Stayed here June 2022 and found the Hotel staff to be very helpful and polite. Our Junior suite was fine and what I expected from the photo's on the website. We didn't have any issues with noise and there was everything you would need in your room apart from an Iron, but I'm sure that if I asked for one at reception then they would of sorted it out. We were out most of the time so didn't really see or use the facilities within the Hotel. The breakfast was fine and there was everything one would want to eat for breakfast from a fry-up to continetal style. The hotel is very well situated for getting around by foot from either going for the boat to Velletta or day trips or taking a stroll down to St. Julians bay. The outside pool area was a bonus and access straight into the Med from there - you might need to be earlyish to get a sunbed as we didn't call there until late afternoon each day after tripping around and all the sunbeds were being used, so we just sat at the tables in the bar area and that was OK. This is a nice area / hotel for older / family people and there are quite a few restaurants to choose from on the front boardwalk for an afternoon / evening meal - Overall I was very pleased with everything and would definately go back to Malta for a longer stay / holiday

A great place on the Sliema waterfront with great views. The location is perfect, easily walkable to sights around Sliema (Tower Road, shopping, even Balluta Bay), and close to public transport. You can get everything close, including some great restaurants and bars only a few mins away. The property has lots of options too, though I only used the main lobby bar, where staff were chatty. The Maltese staff were great and very helpful with all my questions, and helped with my lost luggage too. The check-in guy was a little clueless, but that was the only issue. The property is huge, with three different accommodation areas. I was in the towers with big sweeping curved rooms looking out over the sea. My room was small, but I was alone so not a big deal. The view was awesome, and there's a roof top deck where the views are even better! Breakfast was good, mostly western but with a few Maltese choices (gbejniet, balbuljata). Though the hotel was packed, there was no queueing and no issues. I had a really nice stay and was quite pleased with the hotel. It's not super fancy, but met the brief, was comfortable and made for a pleasant stay.
