"A Happy return"
We booked to surprise some friends who had booked on our recommendation and they were delighted with the Hotel. I was slightly disappointed that as a returning guest and SPG member I had a room stuck in a corner, but that's really not a problem. We enjoyed our stay and made full use of the bar and restaurant, I'm happy to say that the prices are reasonable and the service is good. A strong point is the staff, we were made to feel special and enjoyed meeting them- thanks guys. Only one moan- we had a Coke and Iced Tea by the pool and it cost 11 euros 80!!! Come on guys that well past rip off prices so beware. I will go again possibly in September so we will see what deals are available.
"Good location, don't know about 5 star though."
The hotel itself it perfectly clean and all the staff were fantastic. The buffet breakfast is fantastic. Had room service one evening and this unfortunately was pretty poor and fairly expensive. Too much of the hotel seems to be out of order for my liking, the outdoor pool jets didn't work, steam room was out of order as was the Jacuzzi.on the plus side there is a nice well equipped gym and spa.
I was really impressed while my visit in Malta, staying at The Meridien. I arrived from a fair in Frankfurt to spend 3 days in Malt, staying at Le Meriden. Since our arrival to the check-out, everything was just perfect: the welcome letter, the attention of every staff that I had the opportunity to talk to; they were always smiling willing to help and they were absolutelly polite. Last but not least important: the room. Well, for a person like myself, used to jump from hotel room to another all the time, few things can impress me in that regard, however, I'd say that if you have some extra money in your budget, just book a room in the bay side... that's the hotel's BEST FEATURE.
"Best service and food at Taro Restaurant"
The staff are extremely welcoming. They greeted us and also showed us around and called us by our family name. Kristina our server was the best! She was smiling and making sure everything was ok. She also managed to get us a special starter prepared by the chef with our favorite ingredients (chicken, truffle and bacon...). For mains I tried the aged beef which was cooked to perfection. Will surely visit again. Keep it up!
"One of the best "
This has to rank has one of my most enjoyable stays at any hotel ever. A really nice, clean, modern hotel with some excellent facilities. Numerous bars and restaurants all Very fairly priced. Not the kind you some times find in chain hotels. The Indo spa is large and really nice. Outdoor pool perhaps a little small but it's on the roof, sun beds, bar! Nice pool and good temperature when so hot outside! We booked a junior suite with a sea view and upon check in we were upgraded to an executive room. A smaller room. But higher floor. We asked if we could also have the executive lounge access as we felt this represented an upgrade more fairly and the hotel accommodated this. The room was large, clean, massive bed, nice bathroom and good toiletries. We had a sea view which is also a 'street view'. Even on the 9th floor it's not silent but ok. One small negative is that Saturday night we went for an early one (early get up) and couldn't sleep until 2300 as the hotel has a band on for a wedding at the villa restaurant below. In our room on the 9th is was LOUD it must have been awful on the lower floors. However all quiet by 2300 so not too bad. Also the lift system takes a little getting use to! TV OK but only news channels and a couple of extras. pay per view movies. Breakfast we took in the lounge, which was more than adequate and nice and quiet. Can't comment on the main breakfast buffet but heard it was great. Decent and feee wifi for up to 5 devices. Ice on our floor - always a nice touch. The staff were ALL incredibly friendly and professional. The reception supervisor (so sorry forgot name Alex') was great all the time. Check in was fast and efficient but gave us all the info we needed. Lydia in the bar awesome and helped accommodate a large, last minute drinks reception! Thanks! The hotel is well Located on St Julians bay. Malta is small enough that taxis anywhere are never more than 20€ it seems. Airport was 20 mins and 20€. The swimming area in front of the hotel is ok. Not a beach but the bays on this side of the island seem to be rocky entrances as opposed to a sandy beach. Water impeccable, clean and shallow enough. Perfect temperature (mid June). The Spa treatments were good. My wife said one of the best massages she ever had. Massive variety and nice surroundings. Loads of bars and restaurants around the hotel. We had a good rate from booking.com at 205€ per night for 2 of us. This represented top value in my opinion. We have now joined the SPG rewards and will definitely be back. Our 4 night stay was outstanding a good value. Thanks to all at Le Meridien
