Basic but great location

Posted Oct 15, 2017
Pros: Friendly and helpful staff, cleanliness and great location
Cons: Decent sized fridge Updated decor
Location: Located close to Paceville, which contains many restaurants and also Portomaso which is a lovely newly developed area.
This was our second stay at the Marina and again we had an enjoyable holiday. The rooms are basic but contain everything needed apart from a too small fridge / minibar which you could not store any water in! The added benefit of a stay here is that you can enjoy the facilities of the sister hotel, the Corinthia, including spa / gym, larger pools and "beach", which is in fact just a concrete pier with sun beds. It does however allow safe snorkelling/ swimming in St George's bay. One note of caution, we heard from a local that the whole area may soon undergo development which includes the demolition of a college locate across the road from he hotel!, and may also include demolition he hotel itself!

Lovely hotel and very pleasant staff

Posted Oct 9, 2017
We very much enjoyed our stay at this hotel. The deluxe rooms are beautifully decorated, I would definitely recommend staying in them. We had a slight problem with the shower but this was rectified very quickly. The hotel staff are very pleasant and welcoming and they always seem to go out of their way to help. The hotel has a number of restaurants, the caviar and bull is a fantastic place for dinner. We would definitely book the hotel again!

Nice location and overall a very good stay

Posted Oct 5, 2017
Overall I would rate this hotel 4* as it is exactly what it is advertised as. Staff are probably 5*, very friendly throughout the complex with knowledge on anything we asked. Food in the cafe was very good as was surrounding restaurants but some were pricey. Reason why it isn’t 5* is because there is a step up between this hotel and the 5* hotels. Lovely view overlooking the bay.

Great staff and very pleasurable stay

Posted Sep 30, 2017
Pros: Spacious rooms and great staff
Cons: Bar / lounge overlooking the sea
Stayed for 10 days towards the end of Sept. The staff were excellent and a couple of minor problems quickly sorted. Room was on 5th floor, spacious with great views over the bay and sea. Breakfast was the usual hotel offering and the service was mostly ok though there was a wait for tea / coffee. The hotel faces across the small St George's Bay and the beach can be quite busy so I'd think that the rooms nearer the town might get some night noise from the clubs & bars. The hotel was very quiet so some facilities were in the process of closing earlier at the end of season but happily the facilities at the adjacent Corinthia Hotel are available. Plenty of evening eating options on site but not to far to walk to Spinola for other options. Limited evening entertainment if that's your thing. No problems getting sunbed (see quiet comment above). There is no beach but access to swimming area via steps from the flat rocky platform. Bus stop just outside hotel for getting to Valletta or another about 10 mins walk for buses to other parts of the island. The one thing that seemed missing was a comfortable bar / lounge area overlooking the sea (though this might be down to the time of year) - the only one we found faced directly onto the road. Overall, great hotel, recommended.

Perfect place to relax in the sun

Posted Sep 29, 2017
I had stayed at the resort previously when on a work trip and was hard pushed to choose another hotel in Malta when choosing this year's sunny break. The resort is just great. It is not the best hotel in Malta but it is a great resort. Perfectly placed with views of the sea. Lots of places to relax by s pool if you want to chill out. Close enough to walk to a huge variety of other places to eat. I am sure there are more top end hotels in Malta but for location and value and options to mix your days by the pool and sightseeing I would struggle to find better. Good access to public transport such on this visit was €2 each for a 2 hr period. The staff are all lovely and very welcoming too. Good choice of breakfast options. We will definitely be back.

Very nice hotel

Posted Sep 25, 2017
A lovely hotel wth great pool, beach and coast access. A bit close to Paceville (party central) for my liking but I should have looked into this more, it does not take away from the hotel.

Super hotel with fantastic views over bay

Posted Sep 22, 2017
Second time we've been to this hotel and, hopefully, won't be our last. Deluxe room is lovely with huge balcony overlooking bay and sea. Great breakfast in hotel and surrounding restaurants are highly recommended.

Nice hotel helpful staff

Posted Sep 21, 2017
Pros: Everything, its a lovely property
Location: St Julian is place for young people wanting to party, its full of clubs and bars. If you want to sightsee and like cultural sites stay in Valletta.
When we arrived they were overbooked due to ill guests who could not depart and did not have an ocean view room for us for the first night. To make up for it we took the standard room and were moved for the next 2 nights to an ocean view suite and they included full breakfast for the 3 nights we stayed. It worked out fine. Several restaurants in the hotel, all good and reasonable. Rooms were wonderful, clean and updated. The local bus to Valletta and Sliema stops outside the door. I would not stay in St Julian if you plan to only see Valletta, its just too far. Airport to hotel is 20 EU taxi ride. You purchase a taxi voucher at the airport when you arrive so no haggling. We hired our taxi driver for excursions the following days.and then back to the airport. ,

Wonderful hotel in a great location!

Posted Sep 19, 2017
Pros: Fantastic sea views. Staff were so friendly and helpful - great service. Super restaurants and facilities.
Location: Great coastal location. Good public transport links to Valetta. Lots of bars, shops and restaurants within walking distance.
First time to visit Malta and we weren't disappointed. Wonderful island and the Marina Corinthia was one of the best hotels we've stayed in. We'll definitely go back.
