Three week stay

Posted May 22, 2014
Pros: Price Food Staff
Cons: Longer Reception opening hours. No microwave. Warning that 1 bed apts look at (closed) building site and wall from the bottom two floors.
Location: Only a short walk to all the usual facilities. Classic Car museum great! No beach - but that is Malta not the hotel. Near to bus stop.
I spent 3 weeks alone in a 1 bed apt which is not, I believe, a usual arrangement but it suited me. I like space and somewhere to make my own meals if I choose and the cost of the White Dolphin made it possible on my budget rather than a smaller room at a 5 star luxury hotel. The restaurant was as good(better) than any stand alone restaurant I visited. It is possible to travel anywhere in Malta easily from here. There is a lot to see. 2 Caravaggios umpteen neolithic temples etc. I have 5 children (which maybe why I like to holiday alone now I'm retired) and I'm not sure I could keep them entertained here. View from rear balconies would only interest students of the crisis in the EU bulding industry but was comfortable and sunny if narrow.

Great apartment at White Dolphin.

Posted Nov 9, 2013
Pros: Apartment,position on the bay,left in peace,assistance at hand if needed. Restaurant available.
Cons: Mattresses.
Location: On the outskirts of the busier areas,swimming in the sea a walk away,fantastic snorkelling.Public transport efficient,affordable and extensive .
Lovely self catering accommodation with lovely view of the bay from the front of the apartments,however We do note that there were rear apartments that only have a view of a mural wall,which if we had, we would have been a little disappointed with. Facilities in apartment and space was very good,however the beds weren't the most comfortable.(hard mattress, personal preference?) It was late in season and the pool was " Bracing" and only had sun till noon.May be warmer earlier in season??However a beautiful ,clean and well positioned pool. The only contact we had with the apartment manager was efficient and friendly. Situated around the corner of the more busier part of the bay,which suited us well. Restaurant food was fine and staff were as helpful as they were able and very friendly. Local transport was easily accessible,affordable and well worth it. We would stay here again.

Fantastic holiday

A very family friendly hotel with very helpful staff, nothing was a problem for them. We have stayed here a few times now and never had a problem. Great value for money. Close to transport links!

Ok hotel, nice room with balcony. 5-10 min walk from main streets. Minuses: smell from the salt plains. Breakfast was below average.

Noisy walls

The hotel was very nice, a good value for money. Room condition was satisfactory. The location of the hotel was not really in the center but there was easy access to public transport from hotel.

Clean, comfortable and laid back,all you need!

Posted Apr 14, 2013
Pros: Clean and well equipped,helpful staff,self contained apartments,nice swimming pool.Very ample portions of food.
Cons: Sun has passed over by the afternoon,though this may be a relief later in the season, we were there in early April.
Location: Near to shops and within easy walking distance of Buggiba,Malta is fairly small so everywhere is easily reachable by bus,taxi, or hired car.
The White Dolphin is very clean and a great place for families. The adjoining Garra Cafe serves good food all through the day and evening.The swimming pool falls into shade after 1pm.The staff are all very friendly and helpful. There is an internal phone network to keep in touch with family members in other apartments(free).The only small gripes were that on the one day it rained,Sunday, no one was on reception and the pool table had no balls to play with, presumably on another day reception would provide these.The vouchers for wifi were not very reliable and on the day I tried to use it the pc in the lounge refused to work despite the best efforts of the maintenance man.Our party was made up of 4 generations,ages between 92 and 4 years,we all enjoyed our stay which was made better by the kind and friendly staff.

Great and cheap hotel

Posted Apr 7, 2013
Pros: swimming-pool, location
I didn't expect so much comfort for this price. Room was big, comfortable, clean. Location is very good, near to the center of Buggiba, well communicated with other cities. I recommend this hotel.
