We have just returned from a week's holiday at the Phoenicia which has undergone a multi million euro refurbishment. It was an atmospheric palatial hotel which has been brought up to date in the highest modern standard without losing any of its unique character. Bedrooms and bathrooms although simple are finished to a very high standard and the towels and...

Last Saturday (20th May) we held a Q&A session at the Phoenicia, involving The Prime Minister, Leader of the Opposition, Members of Parliament and other distinguished guests. Roberto and his team were very understanding and accommodating, they offered us all the support we needed and even offered us their ideas and input to improve the event. The facilities and the...

The Hotel fully deserves its five star rating. The location, service and amenities are first rate. My wife and I thought the Hotel was best suited to the more mature visitor and there is a very strong ambiance of a stylish hotel you would expect to find back in England. We visited the bar and had breakfast at the Hotel....

I visited the Phoenicia Hotel 10 years ago and was keen to come back following the refurbishment. All I can say is what a fantastic job they have done. The rooms are lovely and fresh with balconies overlooking the Grand Harbour having amazing views. The Palm Court is wonderful and such a nice place to sit and relax. Beautiful colours...

Our first trip to Malta. Stayed at the Phoenicia which had just re-opened after major renovation. Some areas of the hotel were not finished but all the staff, the manager, in fact everyone there went out of their way to ensure everything went well for our stay. We will be returning.

Having, with complete satisfaction, visited the Phoenicia at least once a year for over 10 years we are still smarting over the well documented reservation shambles over the past 18 months. We had two bookings last year, made in April for June and and late August for mid...

We stayed here for 3 nights on the last April weekend until May 1st. I think not many guests did stay in the hotel at this time. No problem at check-in with our reservation. The people were always friendly. The rooms and the whole hotel were refurbished freshly. We could sleep well without any noise from outside. Unfortunately the pool...
