    The high points of this hotel for me were the choice of pools - 4 in total - and the spa.

    My main complaint was the majority of the staff whom I did not find friendly or helpful - the exceptions were Denis and Joseph at reception.

    The very fact that your premise is to omit offensive language says it all. No further comment is necessary. Your own is offensive enough and requires no further comment.

    1. Dead cockroaches in my room. 2. No bath and sink cleaning during stay; bath was actually harsh. 3. No shampoo/shower gel, except on the first day. 4. Only quilt spread out; bottom sheet crumpled and short. 5. Room service breakfast trays left from first day till last of my stay. 6. On arrival, after waiting 45 minutes to be told whether room was available, I was given a back room, when I had booked a seaview one, complained, was given mine and, consequently, missed lunch, as I was on conference and had a tight schedule. 7. As I was having a bath, a maid entered my room, obviously heard the running water, still walked in and looked straight at me in the bath! 8. In the indoor swimming-pool area, no one was there to whom I could ask

    The spa was great, and there were lovely views from the hotel. The pools were also very nice. Breakfast was great, there was a wide selection. The room we had was lovely. Very modern and clean.

    -The staff were hit and miss. One or two were not helpful, particularly when checking in. However on the whole the staff who were helpful made up for it. I felt that the wifi access was a bit expensive at 3.50 for an hour.

    The value was absolutely amazing! Our room was spectacular and the services were great. We loved all of the food and the pool was great. We had a wonderful time.

    Nothing really. Just when we were about to check out we noticed a lot of tiny ants in our room. If I had noticed them earlier, I probably would have been upset.

    Modern finished family rooms with excellent room cleaning services and friendly housekeeping. Good English Breakfast and reasonable priced restaurants. Evening entertainment great. Recommended

    If you have are running around with a pushchair forget the lower part of the hotel by the beach, since there is no way you can access the Kids waterfall pool and the restarant by the beach.Same apply to disable persons. Some of the front desk reception have to keep in mind that client is always right and to keep a smile on their face all day long no matter how busy they are!!!

    This is a nice hotel and well located. The rooms were to a good standard, however, ours had a poor view into the back street (quite shabby). The outdoor pools are nice and the breakfasts were of a good standard. The indoor pool was tiny and crowded and the jacuzzi didn't look very clean. Overall we had a good stay. Would recommended the hotel but we are not too keen to return to Malta for a holiday.

    The indoor pool was small and over crowded. Jacuzzi didn't look very clean.

    Room was excellent with a fantastic view. Personnel friendly and discreet. Breakfast buffet was very good, evening meal less appealing.

    Were not given the correct room in the renovated part of the hotel as requested, but registered this immediately and the problem was solved within minutes.

    Staff were very accommodating, room were well presented. We would certainly recommend for a budget stay.

    The first room offered to us wsa totally inadequate.

    The situation and facilities were very good. The price was very good and the breakfast was good. Room modern but bathroom small. The second room we were given was clean.

    We tried to check in but they didnt have our booking on the computer. I had forgotten the print out so I had to go and find it which took half an hour. Then we waited a further 10 minutes while they searched for the booking. Finally we received a room which had been vacated but never cleaned. Then we had to go down again in order to have another room. When we checked out the price was different from what we booked but they then amended it.

    There was no noise in the evenings so no problems getting to sleep. Lovely swimming pools.

    Very busy dining room, had to wait for a table. Had to change room after one night very small room and no terrace. Next room had no sun on the terrace.

    Leaving(!) and the spa

    I was booked to stay for only 4 nights and tried 3 rooms in my time there. The first night they stuck me in the time share apartments .... dirty, smelly, mouldy, other people's laundry blocking the door to (167)my room, I could go on. Next they moved me to a room which wasn't an awful lot better (374). Finally they moved me to a room which was 'ok' (128), but certainly not 4*. Ensure you get a good room!

    Was comfortable, nice sea view, good pools, decent food and quiet atmosphere

    Incompetent staff..we were given the wrong keys at first. When we came all the way down for new keys, were given an average 2-star room. When we complained again, we were given a better room but still slightly inferior to other rooms of the same standard. Not just that our room was located at the far end of the corridor, and quite far from the lifts so was always time consuming going in and out of the hotel.
