Have visited Malta many times and this was the first time staying at the Dragonara. Beautiful location with sweeping water views and great facilities. Rooms are large with nice balconies and the hotel is in walking distance to great restaurants and also the Casino. Would definitely stay there again.
"Wonderfully positioned for sightseeing in Valetta"
We went for 3 nights in November deliberately, so that we could sightsee at a cooler time of year. In the 3 days we saw most of the sights ( but the War Museum being closed was a disappointment) We also enjoyed the good standard of the restaurants.
A half day visit to Mdina, the old capital, is worth the effort and go on the public bus, only one and a half Euros for an all day ticket!
Facilities and staff were everything you would expect from a five star hotel with an exceptionally good rate for the low season. There was a wide choice of eating options and although you would expect high prices in such a hotel, they were not significantly different to those in Valletta city centre e.g. Giovannis. We were warned that we may not like Malta but we found the whole week interesting. The city was clean except after a fun run on Sunday and this was quickly cleared up by the evening. The bus services were cheap and excellent.
General Manager invited all new arrivals to meet him and the staff (including backroom staff) in the bar for drinks and nibbles so they must keep in touch with what the visitor thinks.

Beautiful rooms looking over Balutta Bay with easy access to Valletta. The staff were very helpful and friendly. Nice pools (which we did not have time to use). Paceville within ten minutes walk - ie close enough for restaurants, far enough away to avoid noise.

Hotel with Asian spa, influenced by traditional architecture and located 200 metres from a beautiful promenade and beach. The …More
The Palace is well located in Sliema, with easy access to Valetta by ferry and St. Julians either on foot or by bus. Personally, I enjoyed the neighborhood, which has a residential feel, despite all the tourists. The 9th-floor roof pool and deck has spectacular views. There's a church very close to the hotel, which rings its bells every fifteen minutes, but I quickly stopped noticing them. There's also a well-stocked supermarket a couple of blocks down the High Street, which came in handy. The Palace's staff were great, and responded quickly and positively to the requests I had.
It was a pleasant experience generally. Friendly staff, very helpful in many ways including getting around, finding things and in everyway generally. The pools inside and outside were great (including the option of a warm or cold pool). Breakfast was good too. Sammy Omelettes were a winner!
