What's your favourite hotel in Malta, and why????
We have only stayed at Crowne Plaza, I felt it was not true 4* but nice enough all the same (once we moved to another room!!).
I'd like some ideas for other hotels to consider in the future!
Although Gillieru is a 4 star hotel I feel it would be three star in other countries. The only other hotels we have stayed at in Malta (other than Mistra Village where we used to go when we had children with us) have been allocation on arrival so the less said the better!!!
The Gillieru has deterioated over the years - worn bedding, scratchy towels. An extension was added increasing the number of guest by about thirty thus putting extra pressure on sunbeds at busy times of the year.
The food is adequate but samey - ie menu not changed over ten years!! The bar is souless and little used.
But the plus point and our reason for returning year after year is the location on the waters edge. It is wonderful to sit on the balcony in the evening overlooking the sea.
Also the staff are helpful and friendly.
We always enjoy our holidays here and feel we have had good value for money travelling with Chevron.
Marks out of ten for each Hotel
1 The Andar Hotel near Xlendi Bay Gozo (9)
2 The Kennady Nova Hotel Sliema (9)
3 The Fortina Hotel Sliema (5)
4 The Park Hotel Sliema (1)
5 The Coastline Hotel Salina Bay (?)
The Park would be last but I don't go to the coastline till New Year so marks can be given.
I would now like to put the Coastline at nuber 3 with 7 points it could have had more but for its location.
the real holidaymaker
Rooms are very nice and the food and entertainment are very good also.
This hotel now features is most of the holiday brochures (it was once a Thomson only hotel).
The Fortina in Sliema, and The Coastline at Salina Bay. Have stayed at others but these are the Hotels I would prefer to return to.
The Fortina - I like the position of the hotel and also like Sliema. The facilities are excellent and the AI package offered is really up market. Only negative thing is that they are starting to get comparitively expensive but you do get what you pay for.
The Coastline - as with the Fortina facilities are excellent especially the courtesy bus taking you back and forth to nearby Buggiba. A good value for money Hotel offering ample car park space if you choose to hire a car.
Both Hotels have excellent helpful and friendly staff, who do their best to make sure you have a great time,
Do you get vegetarian stuff on Half Board....me mainly eat pasta and pizza (pasta napoletana/arrabiata, and pizza margherita)?? Do they all do chips and salad too?
In the restaurant there is a choice to suit everybody. I am not a vegetarian but don't eat a lot of meat and always found plenty of choice. Plenty of salads too.
Hope this helps.
