We upgraded to a harbour view room and the view was magnificent, the room spacious and comfortable. There was a choice of several restaurants associated with the hotel (with varying cuisines) but we found the La Vallette buffet offered a great variety of good quality (including vegetarian for our daughter) and ate mostly there. There are buses into Valetta nearby...

We'll start with check in, Mercury/Easyjet, taxi etc were all fine. The girl receptionist would have had to have tried hard to be less interested in either us or checking us in.

At the airport we were...

We were greeted at reception by a cheerful lady who was most helpful and pleasant, as were all other staff we met during our holiday, Our superior seaview room met our expectations although it didn't have a balcony. The food at the buffet restaurant was good...

Just come back from staying here for the second time. Booked through Mercury Holidays, 4 star, half board with the dine around. Flew with Air Malta and all was very good. The hotel, considering what you pay, is excellent value for money. The restaurant is really good, fantastic view of Valetta and the food is good. The Dine Around gives...
