“Lovely Hotel, lovely people, lovely views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2012

We stayed in May 2012 for one week in a suite facing the countryside. The room was spacious, comfortable and bathroom a delight. All essentials, large bath with separate shower and enclosed loo. There are three main restaurants the usual buffet which we ate in once and were pleasantly surprised by the quality and choice. The second was an italian based - we ate there once also and enjoyed but found it was a little bustling and noisy, which left us with the third and final french quality restaurant which we ate in three times, a little more expensive but worlds above the others especially if your choice is calm, serene surroundings and outstanding food - easily as good as top class standalone restaurants. The pool area is spacious with lots of beds although the pool was still somewhat icy - be warned if you travel early in the season. There was also however a very good indoor pool with times for children so adults could have the pool to themselves also, a very well equipped gym and an excellent spa, I used this 3 times - would recommend the chinese massage. All in all we enjoyed our stay very much and will return next year for another week. Make use of the onsite buses which will take you to Valetta and other areas at very reasonable costs. Staff were superb, patient and helpful. Drivers in the taxies and buses also informative and friendly. We look forward to our return.

Room Tip: choose a high room if country facing but the sea views really are worthwhile

We had some concerns heading off for our weeks stay at the Radisson Blu having read the reviews about peoples experience of the 'Timeshare presentation' etc. However our experience was the complete opposite of what some of the reviews had reported. Our room was fantastic (a small apartment in fact) perfectly appointed. The Hotel facilities are amazing with plenty of options for eating/drinking. Fantastic big screen projection for the Euro 2012 games with waiters making sure we had plenty to drink. Great atmosphere and a wonderful end to long days of soaking up the fabulous sun either at the pool-side or down at the beach next to the beautiful blue waters of the Meditteranean....superb.

As far as the staff were concerned they couldn't have been more friendly and polite and had smiles for everyone. Brilliant and very professional. Our presentation was very interesting and we spent a fine 4 hours with David Borg who is very knowledgeable and made the time actually very enjoyable. Had our circumstances been different we would have taken a membership as it is a very good deal. Hard sell? Persistent? Definitely not. Quite the opposite in fact and I would recommend anyone going on this promotion to do so with an open mind as you will find it interesting.

Can't wait for our return one day to this excelllent Hotel in beautiful Malta.

We have just returned from Malta,having enjoyed a wonderful holiday. Clear blue skies and warm sunshine enables the unwinding process to be easy. The hotel is wonderful. All the staff are kind, courteous and very helpful. The resort itself is perfect. The ambience is delightful. The different restaurants offer great quality food; particularly Essence. We loved the guided tour of the National Park area behind the hotel, learning so much about the flora and geology of the area. Can't wait to return!

We had a fantastic holiday to Malta. The Radisson wasn't 5 star but possibly 4 stars. Our room was very clean and housekeeping do a fantastic job. On arrival we weren't made particuarly welcome and had to wait until 3pm for our room although we arrived at 11am. Our room was ok. The carpet was worn and the net curtains had several holes in it. The bathroom had a lightbulb out which wasn't replaced for the 7 days that we stayed. On the plus side we their was a small kitchen area which meant we could buy water etc and keep it cool. Breakfast was a little disappointing for me. I like lots of fresh fruit and all the fruit was served in syrup or the fresh fruit was oranges, apples and bananas. The hot food was plentiful with sausages, bacon etc We only had lunch a couple of days at mokka and it was pretty tasteless.

On the plus side Billy Franks was playing at night in the outsid area from mokka and he was fantastic. We found ourselves rushing back from dinner each night to listen to him. He certainly made our holiday along with 'his manager' Paul!

the hoel had a lot of functions and weddings. It was disappointing that Billy was asked to stop playing at his acoustic guitar was too loud although the seating area was full. Once he stopped you could hear a DJ from the function area and it was louder than Billy.

The timeshare meeting was about 4 hours. My husband and I both work in the hospitality industry and it was interesting to hear the 'hard sell.' Once we told them we were not interested we still had to wait 25mins for the manager to confirm that he couldn't cut a deal for us. Bit if a tip- look at hotels close to where you live that you may know to check the standard. We found that they were selling one that has gone into administration and one which I wouldn't stay in even if it was complimentary!

The restaurants and wine in Malta were fantastic.
Rebekah's was by far my favourite. If you ask the conceriege to book they provide complimentary transport. We didn't know this the first night and the drifter desk charged us 26Euro for transport.
Bacchus in Mdina was also superb especially the secret garden.
Venus in bugibba was also superb
Munchies opposite the hotel was great for lunch and dinner. Great welcome and fabulous prawns.

We will certainly be back to Malta although not the radisson

Room Tip: ask for a sea view

The Hotel is without a doubt a 5 star hotel. The surroundings are beautiful; food excellent and staff all very attentive and wanting to make your stay enjoyable. My husband and I stayed for 5 nights and the appartment was first class. Our only disappointment was that we stayed in the block which housed the Weddings and in our 5 nights, there were 3 Weddings, one of which continued until after 2.30am outside.
The presentation was not high pressured but lasted 6 hours which took a day out of our stay.

Room Tip: Block 3 is above where the Weddings are so it can disturb your sleep.
