Lovely hotelPosted Oct 5, 2013
Pros: It was clean well run and quiet.
Cons: May be the service was a little slow at times but that wasn't a problem, we were on holiday after all.
Location: The beach location was good but not much choice for eating out locally.
The staff throughout the hotel were excellent and the breakfast and evening buffet choice of food could not be faulted.The sea view from our very well appointed room was exquisite. All in all a very enjoyable holiday for our first time in Malta.

Comfortable hotel at the best location in MaltaPosted Sep 26, 2013
Cons: The team at the beach could work a bit harder. Also, it would be nice to see less people from outside using the private beach facilities.
Location: The location is great, the beach is very good.
Overall, our stay at the hotel was great. The sandy beach is very good, with only a few occasional stones. The hotel is surrounded by Malta's natural landscapes and thus offers some tranquility and magnificent vistas. All the main touristic attractions are easily accessible by car or bus. The hotel has several restaurants so you do not have to go out, in fact, they are popular among local people. The staff is very friendly and helpful. If you want to go to Malta, this is the place to stay.

Nice hotel for a "White Wedding"Posted Sep 16, 2013
Cons: WiFi connection in the room.
Location: Directly on beach. Half private to hotel. Accessible by steps. Could see people horse-riding each evening. Need to use transport of some kind.
Stayed here for my sister's wedding for four nights in September 2013. Held on the beach followed by a reception in the Essence Bar. A truly lovely time had by all. The food we had here, including the wedding reception, was very nice. We also ate a couple of times at "Munchies" on the beach. The pizzas and salads highly recommended. The view from our room was a little disappointing. We weren't expecting a sea-view as on a budget and hadn't upgraded, but we overlooked what appeared to be waste land and could see the sea if we leant over the balcony and looked to the left. However, on the second day there were arrivals on the land, which staff at the hotel said we're probably the Scouts! Not a big issue, but a bit noisy at times and there was no mention of this prior to staying. It looked like the waste land was divided up into sections, and what I presume were toilet/shower blocks, with other caravans and motor homes parking up. Not busy in September, but not so sure of other times of the year. The only other aspect is that the hotel is a bit far away from it all. Which is nice, but anywhere you go you probably need transport of some kind. It is good to note that the hotel has its own shuttle bus service taking you to a small selection of places, at a nominal charge. I would go back to the hotel but would definitely upgrade to a sea view room.

Great family holiday !!!!Posted Aug 17, 2013
Pros: The beach was great
Cons: Not enough variety of food & pricey too .
Location: Location was excellent . It was in Golden Bay (North of Malta)but rather secluded from shops & sightseeing , but the beach was worth it !
Lovely hotel , great staff , would benefit from a wider food selection as it is a little pricey . Overall good stay would recommend to families and will go back !

Unfortunately, on the slide.Posted Jul 27, 2013
Pros: The cocktail bar is amazing. If only for the show of watching the bar man at work.
Cons: The music and evening noise is too much and disturbs the accomodation.
Location: The beach, pools and location is excellent. Malta is small and it takes very little time to get anywhere.
This is a hotel that clearly sets out to be a luxury resort. The quality of the hotel itself, the bars and restaurants and the staff are all aiming for the best. However, they are clearly concerned about occupancy rates and as such have let out a large part of the complex to timeshares and other discount schemes in order to bring in the numbers, including groupon vouchers. So, for the first time in my experience, it is the clientele that lowers the rating of this hotel. Because of the discount schemes, the hotel has made various concessions to the lower end of the market to entice those holidaymakers into the hotel bars and restaurants to spend their money (and vouchers!) within the resort. Unfortunately this means loud music and loud people until late into the evening in a hotel which was not designed for this level of noise. We had to move rooms because the windows in our 7th floor room rattled until after 11pm and we could not use the balcony at all during the evening. If this sounds snobbish, bear in mind I paid a luxury price and expected an exclusive type of resort. The room is described as "Serene Sea View", it was not serene. I did not expect to be sitting next to people eating sandwiches out of tupperware by the pool and way too many badly inked chav tattoos were on show. If I wanted that I could get it in Malia or Magaluf for a lot cheaper.

Lovely locationPosted Jul 26, 2013
Pros: Cleanliness, size of pool and surrounding area ( never had to search/ wait for a sun lounger), friendliness of staff
Cons: Slow service in the restaurants, poolside and bar
Hotel setting is lovely and our room was spacious and had all the mod cons etc. The pools are lovely and clean and there was something for everyone- ie children and noise tended to stay up one end which is lovely for both those of us holidaying with children and those holidaying without! the only thing I would mark it down for and which was consistent across all services in the hotel ( reception, room service, restaurants and waiter service at the pools) is that it is very slow. Whilst we are in Malta and things aren't known for being fast paced, we did have to wait too long for service and had to chase things too many times which is not something I associate with a 5 star hotel.

Disappointed....Posted Jul 24, 2013 on Hotels.com
In general the hotel is expensive and very over rated and certainly not worth the 5 star rating in my opinion. On arrival (not advertised) they take a high deposit of 30 euros per guest per night 'in case' you use the hotel facilities which of course adds up. It seems from the moment you hand over your card it feels like it is every opportunity to draw money from you which didnt make our stay enjoyable. As soon as we entered the room the porter broke the light switch and the toilet wasn't working but in fairness these were both fixed promptly. However, my expectation as a guest is that I don't have these hassles in a 5 star resort!! Also one morning we entered the spa to try the indoor pool ushered through by the receptionist and found that there was workmen doing up the pool area, generators going, plastering etc...does they think I want to relax on a building site?! All considered this place is 'nearly' a 4 star resort at best and expensive at that! Disappointed....

Lovely views and comfy bedsPosted Jun 4, 2013 on Hotels.com
The hotel was lovely with plenty of room to walk and explore. We stayed there for our wedding and the views and areas within the hotel are lovely. We had a suite with seaviews and waking up every morning hearing the sea and the water fountains was amazing. The hotel location is abit remote but there is a bus stop but we got taxi buses to get around to towns, but with a beach and lovely pool its great for relaxing

Very NicePosted Jun 3, 2013 on Hotels.com
You would not regret to stay there, except you only like staying in the town centre.

Family friendly n ideal for a seaside breakPosted Jun 2, 2013
Our stay at the Radisson was a really relaxing break- the sea in Malta is the most amazing shade of lovely clear blue- the private beach was lovely, but the pool was cold even at midday. We had a sea view room and the view was lovely, however the w/c was discoloured and the fittings tired. The staff were pleasant and helpful, was certainly a child friendly place and the children loved it.
