“The friendliest hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2012

This hotel is a wonderful option for a great time in Malta. The rooms and along beautiful wide corridors which emit a classic and timeless elegance consistent throughout the hotel. No noise can be heard in the bedrooms and the beds are wonderfully large and comfortable and allow for a great nights sleep.
The most prominant point to be made about this hotel is how universally friendly and helpful the staff are, without a doubt the best example of this we have ever come across around the world. We would like to extend our sincere gratitude to Chris who was great throughout our stay and particuarly to Martin who continually went way above and beyond the call of duty. His attention to detail, thoughtfullness and ability to anticipate our needs and make wonderful recommendations and suggestions was perfect. We could never have imagined a staff member in any hotel would have done as much to make a guests stay so enjoyable. He is a unique and wonderful asset to this establishment. We highly recommend The Corinthia Palace hotel & Spa and thank Martin, Chris and all the very friendly staff for making our vacation a memorable experience, we really enjoyed our time here and now have a very positive impression of the hotel, Malta and the wonderful Maltese people. We will definitely be returning to this hotel and would highly recommend it.

Having been awarded a “Malta People’s Award” (again in 2011), we were really looking forward to our stay in the Corinthia Palace and Spa. What must be made clear is that the word “Resort” is missing from the name, and as such this is a very different 5* establishment to the ones that you will find in St Julian or Sliema, or even the Corinthia sister hotel “St George’s Bay”. Certainly, there are all the luxuries you would expect in a 5*: 24 hour reception and room servie, valet parking, concierge, and fresh orange juice to welcome you at Check In. The Corinthia Palace also boasts 2 big restaurants – “The Corinthia” (smart Dress Code essential), and “The Rickshaw” (“Award Winning Chinese, Malaysian and Thai food” – for us it was a bit over-priced and inauthentic – but our holiday home is in Penang). The gym is also excellent (a good selection of cadio machines, weights machines and free weights, including a kinesis gym room), and the spa/indoor pool/Jacuzzi was extremely pleasant (if a little worn). There is an outdoor pool within rather beautiful “sun trap” gardens, and in the summer there would be Al Fresco dining offered at their Pool Lounge/Pizza Pasta Bar. Breakfast was quite extensive – American/English, Continental, as well as European meats and cheeses and cereal/yoghurt/fruit for the healthy eaters. However, despite all this obvious indulgence, and pleasant staff, the Corinthia lacks a warmth that so many other places my partner and I have experienced (5 star to 1 star) exude in abundance. This is a place where children are seen – although definitely not heard, where staff are polite and knowledgeable – and clearly “doing their 5* job”, and where – on closer inspection – their MPA was for “Corporate Social Responsibility” above anything else.

However, don’t let me put you off – the hotel is in a great location to explore (especially if you hire a car – and there is free parking outside). I do actually highly recommend this as generally ,if there is a space, you can park in it - although Valetta has a 5 Euro “congestion charge”. It is much nicer to have the freedom to travel around the Island on your own, and car hire charges are very reasonable (with Europacar it cost us 51 Euros for 4 days plus petrol, and we barely used up half a tank). The travel guides say that Malta is difficult to drive around, however, this is not because of “chaotic frenzy”, but rather because the road signs (and road surfaces) are inconsistent, and the drivers are an eclectic mix of “Sunday drivers” and “boy racers”.

This also means that a visit to “The Blue Lagoon” off Comino Island is much easier - don’t take the package trips (costing between 35-55 Euros for a “full day” – often because of the multiple hotel pick ups), we drove up to Cirkewwa where we caught the “Comino Ferry” (10 Euros each return, running at ten past the hour until about 16.10) strolled round the island ourselves, went into the Comino Tower (also the setting for “The Count of Monte Cristo”’s “Chateau D’If), and swam in the lagoon (mind the jellyfish), and caught the ferry back in time for a late lunch in Silema...no rush, no fuss, and much less cost.

The Corinthia Spa and Palace is a very luxurious place, the rooms big with a high level furnishing, the staff friendly and offering a very good service. The bar is lovely, they mix very delicious cocktails and you have easy listening live music every night (which do not disturb your sleep or is to be heard in the rooms). Only drawback is the nearby street which is highly frequented and accordingly noisy. Next time I would book a room not to the garden (which means street) but to the pool (very nice).

The room was very comfortable particularly the large bed. The whole hotel was immaculate and always sparkling clean.The one downfall was the quality of the food in the Corinthia Room, especially on the Sunday which was a self service buffet which had been badly organised. I do feel the quality of the food was not the best - certainly not 5 star. However the management dealt with my complaints in a satisfactory manner. I can definitely recommend Rickshaws restaurant in the basement beneath the Caprice Bar. The bar was staffed most admirably by Lizio, the barman.There appears to be a trend in hotels to serve breakfast from chafing dishes, which never seem to keep the food hot enough and for 5 stars the breakfast should be served.

Room Tip: All rooms would appear to be of equal size with good sized balconies. We were in rear and it was nic...
