7.1 Good
Pros:Staff were all good, good facilities, although we didn't use them,
Cons:Expensive bar/food, but you would expect this. The steps to get to Valetta were a slog, nothing mentioned about this in the blog! Seemed as though only the really expensive rooms were given a window view for breakfast.
6.0 Okay
Pros:Nice pool
Cons:They charge you every little thing such as business center without telling me that they have the charge for business center (right after I went to the business center to print my boarding pass they were trying to charge me for 5 euro plus paper) and they claimed that ice bucket was missing after we left hotel and flew back to New York. They charge us for that which we have never seen while we stayed there. They told us that they have inventory list before people come in but who steals the ice bucket? If we need one we don't take the used one. For me this was not the pleasant stay. I had to deal with the bill for the amenities which we had never had. I thought this is 5 star hotel but I would rather stayed 3 star hotel and didn't have to deal with all the burden after I left. Never stay here again.
6.0 Okay
Pros:The hotel would have been fine - if it was a 3-star hotel. However, dinner at the Tiki Restaurant was fantastic.
Cons:The bed was terribly uncomfortable, and service was mediocre - we waited over 30 minutes for our drinks from the poolside service. The buffet breakfast was included in our room price, but it was one of the worst meals I've had in a long time. At the price, this is not a hotel i could recommend.
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:We liked everything - room, food, swimming pool, service
10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Fantastic pool area with restaurant and bars. Wonderful service throughout the holiday.
9.0 Wonderful
Pros:Beautiful Hotel with a great location, nice swimming pool and a nice selections of restaurants.
Cons:Room had a terrible view and the carpet had some stains on it.
