We spent 4 days at this hotel and overall it was good. Very good position with plenty of bars restaurants and views of the marina. If there was any complaints it would be terribly slow lifts and although there was plenty on offer at breakfast, some of the hot food wasn’t. I

I can't add anything to the previous replies. I adore the hotel but, not sure it's younger person orientated. There is an outdoor pool close by, and the hotel offers a bus service to it. Malta in July becomes too hot, even for the locals! I went in Sept and it was 35 even then!

We have a very early flight home, what time does the restaurant open for breakfast?
As others note, before 7 tea and coffee etc is available in reception, but it's pretty basic - instant coffee for example. Better to get fed at the airport.

"All rooms are good but the Marina view rooms are good."
