The Xara Palace was a beautiful hotel, the staff were so helpful and the hotel exceeded our expectations. Mdina in our opinion was the best place to go for a quiet peaceful holiday. We visited for the Mdina Classic Car Grand Prix which was fantastic and after the day to return to such a peaceful hotel with luxurious decor was the icing on the cake. Felt quite sad when we left the hotel as we would have loved to stay longer. Mdina is a beautiful Silent City with some lovely restaurants and wine bars and even though it was a little busy during the day with 'tourists' it was still peaceful. A romantic place to go for couples if you like it quiet and peaceful.

Stayed for one week and had a very good time. Lots of things to do in a beautiful country with very nice and kind people. And the exceptional staff and service at the hotel enhanced the experience greatly.
I had read a few reviews before going to the hotel and was a little worried but I didn't need to be, every member of staff we came in contact with was helpful, efficient and friendly. The room was great - quiet and spacious, the restaurants comfortable and inviting and the pools (both indoor and out) were lovely. We ate in the hotel most nights (having had long days out) and the food and service was brilliant and the variety and quality of food at breakfast was amazing. We will definitely be going back!
Valletta is a short walk from the hotel but does involve going up a lot of steps. A lot of the streets are quite steep so anyone who has more difficulty getting about should bear this in mind - I would say it's worth it though.
Room spacious and clean, however it was not clearly stated in the description that the free wifi and the air conditioning only applied in the reception area. The room only had a rather inadequate ceiling fan. Also there was no mention that there is a 50 euro deposit for the room key. A room safe could be hired as also could an extra fan but these had a deposit of 10 euros apiece and a daily charge, meaning your funds are 70 euros down instantly if you want security and comfort on your holiday.
