      Perfect

      The location of the hotel was great and also the rooms were simply great and comfortable. The staff was always very nice and helpful. Especially when eating, my gluten intolerance was taken into consideration very well and everything was shown to me, special products offered or even special gluten-free food prepared. Simply super :)

    • 9.6
      Perfect

      Very friendly and helpful staff. Pool a bonus with beautiful views to the sea. Room a very ample size.

      The gym did not have a cross trainer or treadmill. Balcony small but adequate.

      Very good

      The staff was very friendly and provided great service. Breakfast is a various spread and the staff works hard to keep cleanliness. The spa service was luxurious-a real treat!

      The pillows in the room was the only complaint that we had. They were flat and uncomfortable.

      Guest rating

      The rooms were a good size and the food was acceptable.

      Beds were too light moved around, too many hidden extra charges tv no good radio no good, rooftop pool far to small and open to outsiders when there were not enough sunbeds for the guests, was charged 5euro just for ice in the room, cleaning staff very poor cups left dirty etc, no refills on tea or coffee

      Nice rooms, gentle and prepared staff. A bit far from the beaches but in nice and quite location on the mountain.

    • 8.2
      Great

      I booked the Romeo and Juliet treatment at the spa for me and my boyfriend and it was really relaxing and enjoyable, well worth it. They provide a very extensive breakfast, something for everyone, very impressive.

      The room was a bit of a treck from reception, had to take 2 different lifts with a walk in between, however that is probably why I got a good price!

    • 9.2
      Perfect

      I had read many mixed reviews on the hotel, probably based on the variety of rooms offered and there being sister hotels and chose this based on the price. We booked a studio apartment to avoid any windowless rooms and it couldn't have turned out much better. Large and clean the room was great and the hotel facilities were very good. Roof pool and indoor pool coupled with gym and spa - the staff were also friendly and attentive. Also relatively close to the ferry terminal for trips to the Blue Lagoon and Gozo

      The location is at the north tip of Malta island and so can be a long journey (30-45min) to and from anywhere else on the island such as the airport/Valetta - but it does make getting to the Blue Lagoon and Gozo much easier. It is also on the top of a steep hill in Meilleha so it takes a bus ride to the nearest beach

    • 10.0
      Perfect

      An excellent choice and very reasonably priced for what you get. Very comfortable. I had a quality spotless room with nice balcony at the back and am very glad I didn't have a front room overlooking the very noisy road. Super location, great facilities and a top breakfast buffet with a huge range. The pools are a little on the small size but the rooftop one is okay with lots of sun beds. The gym had a dozen standard machines. I never had evening meals at the hotel but heard they were 'okay'. I preferred to use local small supermarkets and bakeries and try out lots of different food. Restaurent meals in the area were generally ridiculously expensive (about 18 euros a meal) but you can eat cheaply easily. Local wine from supermarkets was excellent a cheap. The best thing is the location. The bus stop is opposite the hotel. The beach is 5 mins away, the gozo ferry 10 mins away and busses to Valetta about 40 minutes. I would definately book here again.

    • 7.4
      Very good

      The Hotel was in a good location in the village of Mellieha. The room was beautiful and spotlessly clean which was a relief. The food and choice of food at breakfast were quite good. On the whole it was a pleasant hotel and I would recommend it.

      We were told on our arrival that the room would be ready in a few minutes however we ended up waiting over two hours for the room and then I had to ask if the room was ready myself. There were no drinks in the mini bar in the room. The breakfast room was in quite a shabby state with juices and coffee spilt on the floor and not wiped up by the staff, empty tables left with food and drink on them instead of being cleared away. We were also rather abruptly asked upon entering the breakfast room what our room number was in rather a rude tone by a young lady - she could have been a bit more discreet in requesting guests room numbers. .
