Although the hotel was closed for refurbishment their air-conditioned modern bar restaurant was open. Set right in the heart of Bagibba this place is trendy, upmarket and plush inside. Great cocktails and friendly efficient table service

I was told before I went not to expect much.. as Malta is a little behind the times.. Well it is but I personally loved the place.. The main fault I found was that our room was like a cave (#114).. the window was onto a shaft(?) the kitchen & main extraction vent.. very very loud.. We asked to change rooms & were told to ask the next morning.. we did and same the next day.. we were only there for one week so I gave up.. We hired a table top fridge, 4 euros a day, we had to ask for a stand up fan as A/C was rubbish.. & a kettle.. no mugs or spoons so we bought some.. :-( Nice roof pool..shallow. Jan on reception is as helpful as she can be..everyone has a boss.. The beach was dark, gritty and rocky but very nice.. beautiful in fact.. the square is very very busy 24/7.. some lovely places to eat and benches around the centre which get used a lot by locals .. it's a lovely place. There are lots of glass and jewellery shops everywhere.. not too expensive for lots of things but you can pay as much as you want.. We visited the aquarium.. that was a walk I'll remember.. but level path all the way :0) It's a really nice place.. I can't remember how much to get in.. Around 12-15 euros per person?? We caught the bus to Mdina.. WOW.. now that's beauty.. We visited, by bus, Valletta one day.. both places need experiencing for yourself.. Bugibba is a town like any other so be prepared for everyday life.. All in all we'd definitely revisit BUT it'd definitely be self catering..

Dear Melanie R, We thank you for your nice review Kettle and mugs are provided in balcony and side sea view rooms. Just a little comment about you were told that Malta is a little behind times we don't know what it means as Malta is part of the EU and one finds everything and quite a beautiful place to visit with top restaurants to take out foods,shops of all brands are found on the Island together with latest technology. Hope we will accommodate you in the near future.
