    Fabulous

    Breakfasts and suppers are really terrible in the hotel's restaurant. There's nothing to eat actually. But you can get good meal in "a la carte" restaurant "Quadro"

    Exclusive

    Spacious comfortable room plus access to executive lounge. Public areas very well furnished and comfortable. Staff - particularly concierge -veryhelpful. Overall a very well presented Hotel ten minutes walk to the centre of St Julians and local buses.

    Reception not always well staffed and sometimes a long wait.Also no executive check in at the lounge as specified in Bookings. Com descriprtion. Bed sette in room was very uncomfortable to sit on.

  • 8.2
    Fabulous

    Comfortable and well-equipped installations, appealing for everyone: family-oriented stays, business plans and romantic retreats. The hotel staff is efficient and kind, the location one of the bests in the island and the views are spectacular. To finish the day one can relax at the lounge while listening to the pianist and drinking a cocktail and then enjoy dinner at the Quadros or any of its highly recommendable restaurants.

    1) We suggest the carpets are removed from the guest rooms as carpets are very little hygienic. 2) Some painting is required to restore the few walls flakings in the rooms and in the common installations. 3) Restrooms are not 5-star, but 3-star at the most: restoration / upgrading is required, as well as a more exhaustive daily cleaning.

    Exclusive

    - The location - hospitality with the reception - general facilitites (gym, lobby, concierge etc) - sunbeds / swimmingpools, access to the sea - breakfast-service - room-service, - lobby-bar - general service from the hotel before, upon and after arrivals - very good!

    - The pool-bar service was not up to standard at all, the one execption was the service from the man behind the bar in the reef-poolbar who was a very nice person - would be nice if we could predict when the room would be cleaned; not necessarily so that we must have the room cleaned ad the time of our choice but so that we could plan our day a little better if we would know more precisily when the room would be cleaned

    food at the poolbar wasn't great,

  • 7.4
    Very good

    Good central location for restaurants and bars and activities. Pool area had plenty beds and quiet enough as kids generally elsewhere. Executive room facility was useful for breakfast & pre-dinner drinks which suits our style. Staff were all extremely attentive and friendly.

    The room faced east and the sea view which was good but balcony therefore never saw sunlight. Room was clean enough but the carpet in room was filthy and when asked to be cleaned was only token cleaned although immediately. I travel world wide extensively through work and this is not a 5 star hotel. More like a good 4. Executive lounge facility was not up to what you would expect for 5 star hotel - during the day at least. Hotel restaurants very quiet in mid September so we ate out all but 1 evening and the rest of town still very busy.

  • 9.2
    Superb

    Service was excellent and location as well. We got good tips from reception desk where to go for dinner.

    It is time for rooms to be redecorated.

    Good

    Excellent front of house staff, generally good service.

    Housekeeping was poor. Food in the hotel was very average. Hotel is in need of renovations. For a hotel advertised as luxury, it was underpar.

    Superb

    HAving read the reviews before, I think there are some useful things to note - if you book a tower room ask for one in the south wing ending in 01. We had a room that was exactly the same as in the picture (501). If you want clean sheets, you just have to put a card on the bed in a morning. The staff were amazingly helpful. Unless you are into clubbing, there is nothing really around the hotel, but everything we needed as a family with young children was in the complex. When booking this, we also looked at the intercontinental. I am so glad we booked the Westin, as the in the Intercontinental is in the middle of town, and looks very boxed in.

  • 8.8
    Superb

    Beautiful hotel set in a prime location in St. Julian's Bay with access to the sea. Overall the staff were very helpful and attentive.

    On numerous occasions the room was left without adequate towels after morning cleaning service.This did not improve despite complaints to management. A checklist for cleaners should be in place on completion of housekeeping. The access to the sea is very slippy both in the Bayview and Reef and should be addressed on a maintenance programme.

  • 8.8
    Superb

    Hotel was very clean and staff were very pleasant. The rooms were very spacious and the balcony overlooking the pool and sea was a major bonus.

    The sunbeds at the sea water pool were very uncomfortable and need to be upgraded to the same standard as the main pool. Meals were expensive, especially breakfast if this was not included in your stay. Although the hotel is super, its location with in the town is not the best as it appears to be where all the young adults gather at night although this would only bother you if you went out late. No noise could be heard from our hotel.

  • 8.8
    Superb

    Great rooms. Lovely views

    The adult pool was not adult. No efforts made to control children anywhere. Far more suited to families w children.

  • 10.0
    Exclusive

    Excellent facilities for a family - swimming pools, beach, tenis/basketball/football. Well located in a busy area but just on the edge so still very relaxing.

    We ate barfood one evening and the quality of the food was poor. It was very bland and as a result over priced so, apart from breakfast, we ate our meals outside the hotel
