The hotel is nice, but there are many probs and cons. So will start from the best things. Beach The beach is amazing! Nice view from the hotel. Snorkeling is great. Nice bar on the beach. Spa Spa is great. Good choice of peelings and massages. However, there is one therapist who are not enough qualified I think. Was with...

The hotel is nice, staff friendly, and rooms clean. It is a bit remote but you can get around by public transport easily. Would be good to have a cash point in hotel so don't have to go to next town to get cash. Food not bad but not exciting and a bit bland. Would probably not go back but...

Spent 10 days here from 18 to 28 Sept 2016. Advertised as 4 star but at best is only 3 star. No tea/coffee facilities in rooms, food is good quality but seriously lacks variation and choice. Not close to shops, or public transport, although convenient for ferry to Comino. From advertising, I was led to believe I was going to...

The food in the restaurant was very limited, though what they did cook was not too bad. Breakfast was limited with little fruit available, and dinner was also very limited, no cheese in the salad...
