We stayed at the Grand hotel Mercure Selmun Palace in July 06. Cleanliness was good and the rooms were cleaned daily. Flies were a problem, but they were sprayed daily by the staff inside the hotel.

Food became very boring as it was a buffet every meal time. We stayed 14 days and the end of this time were glad not to see another buffet as it felt like we ate the same food daily.

The location was good for us as we like to walk, but it is a very hot walk and this could not be done with children. We used the local buses, but it took about 15 minutes to the bus stop. There is a free minibus service from the hotel twice a day which took you into Melliah village or down to the beach.

Entertainment was very limited as the choice of music was very dated. There were evenings when there was a show of traditional dance, which was ok.

I stayed at the 4 star Selmun Palace Hotel in Malta in July after getting a Thomson late deal.
I would not consider the hotel to be 4 star due to the place needing refurbishment. It must once have been a very grand hotel but the carpets in the lobby are frayed, food was left outside rooms by residents in the long lobby, which was not cleared away for hours at a time. some of the tiles on the bathroom floor were chipped and the radiator was covered with rust. There was a daily maid service but the floors were not cleaned properly. Other than these minor flaws the hotel was large and spacious. The flaws took away from a very comfortable stay.
The food was not what id call 4 star either. The flies were a nightmare and I couldnt relax to eat. I ended up covering my plate with my napkin if I put down my fork. My other hand kept busy with shoo-ing flies. It gave me the cringes. It was not only the hotel that was overidden with flies, everywhere there is food in Malta, there are flies. We must have been unlucky (i hope) and it was the full on mating season. Choice of food was limited except for salad which was good. I ate the worse ever pasta which was luke warm. Desserts were also limited and the only cheese served with biscuits was blue cheese.
We did not use the pool but it looked pleasant enough. The hotel had a sign up, advising residents to look at the danger of public pool before using. I did not read it as didnt use the pool.
The location of the hotel was at the top a hill with brilliant panoramic views. The best view was St Pauls Bay. If you dont like walking or dont plan to hire a car or bike, the hotel is not for you. We didnt mind the location and decided to hire a car which was a good move. To Get out of the hotel area you need to catch the hotel bus which stops at 4pm, walk about half a mile(maybe 1/4 but felt like 1/2 due to the blistering heat) to the nearest bus stop, get a taxi (
