We booked the hotel based on the shuttle bus service advertised on the website but there is none. It is the sister hotel at St. George Bay provide shuttles for their customers, disappointed. Need more staff training: there were confusions or poor advises on buses and nearby facilities. Staff clearly can't cope very well on breakfast and dinner time. Coffee and tea are terrible. Breakfast staff clearing tables still chewing food. Dinner at Bayview restaurant was disappointed as staff always ignored customers waiting and don't serve as first come first serve. There were plenty of empty tables but some customers even turned away after waiting for 10 to 15 mins. Customers complaint their desserts were terrible. Very unprofessional. There were customers smoking in the hotel room even though "No smoking" sign were in the rooms. Cleaning staff not cleaning the tables well, clumps, food residues still on the glass table. Floor have streak of black marks.

Found ourselves in south facing room overlooking the very noisy external air conditioning machine for the whole hotel. Upgraded to suite at end on 6th floor which allowed east facing window to be open with less noise. Would advise not to have a south facing room whatever floor level. Half board was available and Expedia should have been able to book it for us. Hotel was otherwise excellent despite the fact we finished paying far more than planned. Bonus being able to park hire car out of the sun under the hotel.
Food was good and varied every day in the buffet and nice to ring the changes in the Bistro restaurant on two evenings. Staff all friendly and helpful.
Car hire provided by Expedia was not acceptable due to price and excellent cheaper car hire available with Swift Car hire who delivered the car to the airport and picked it up at end
Good enough hotel but some of the areas are a little dated. The restaurant food is no good at all, despite them trying to recreate a "high end" feel with table cloths and suit-clad waiters. The food was way below average.
I was really annoyed that when I checked in I wasn't asked for a credit card for them to secure any extras although my colleague was asked for one. They said I didn't have to because of the way my reservation was booked, so all OK. Then the next morning I went to have breakfast and when I finished they came with a bill and asked me to pay on the spot. I didn't have my wallet with me of course so I asked if I could settle at check out. They said no, because I hadn't given a credit card when I checked in, so I had to pay then and there. That was bad communication and manners, they should have asked my at check in to give them my card and not ask me to pay my breakfast on the spot.
Some guests at check in were offered a refreshment, we weren't , so not sure what their criteria for offering a juice is...

Very close to the clubs a little too close. Not too much noise but a little. Large rooms with nice shower bathroom. Bed are huge but we're so uncomfortable! make sure to ask them to change. The upstairs pool was not working which sucked and the indoor pool was cold it's unfortunate
"Excellent hotel close to the beach and nightclubs"
Amazing hotel, and couldn't have asked for a better location. Less than 5 minutes walk from St George's beach and the nightclubs of Paceville., St. Julians. Also very close to a bus stop that goes to most worthwhile locations in Malta.
Room was excellent, we got the deluxe room and it was incredibly spacious. Hotel breakfast was also satisfactory (nothing to call home about, but enough to give you a good start to your day).

Really good location within walking distance of St julians restaurants and opposite bus stop which you can take to Valletta and to airport. However room itself was basic - there was a kettle however bring own tea/ coffee if required. Beds were not very comfy was too soft and well used - could feel the bedsprings and the carpets could do with a good clean aswell. The bathroom was the only thing that was refurbished with modern shower.
Centred around St Julian’s Bay and St George’s Bay, St Julian’s is Malta’s prime resort. Pretty Spinola Bay (part of St Julian’s Bay) is lined with restaurants that overlook colourful traditional boats and modern yachts. The rest of the bay features large hotels, lidos, and a small pleasure harbour. Immediately inland, Paceville is a dense concentration of nightspots, and includes the Bay Street shopping and leisure complex.
