Although there were a few maintenance issues these were dealt with promptly. In the main the hotel staff were polite and courteous. The room was adequate and well laid out, but the best thing...

The outdoor pool and bar are right on the sea and have great views. The hotel is very convenient for bars and restaurants and nearby...

We have just had a week in Malta half board at this 4star hotel in Sliema. The hotel is old fashioned with dated decor but the location is perfect for the view across to Valletta the ferry and the bus stop. Sliema is not the most attractive place but for a winter break it was more than adequate. As others...
