Nice hotel, wonderful staff.

Posted 16-May-2017
Pros: The staff.
Cons: Soundproofing.
Location: On reflection it's in the best part of town, easy bus routes to the whole island and fantastic restaurants nearby.
I booked the Solana thinking it was near the beach, it's not, it's a good walk down the hill to the beach. However it is in the best bit of Mellieha where the best bars and restaurants are. We had to move rooms due to noise from the main road but the staff were great and arranged the move whilst we spent the day on the beach. The staff at this hotel are exceptionally well trained and presented, they made our stay and our Spa experience great.

Great hotel in the centre of Melleiha

Posted 07-May-2017
Pros: Loved the pool on the roof, the room was fine. The beds very comfortable. The towels changed daily.
Cons: Better range of toiletries. Better beach towels.
Location: Very central in the village. Can walk down to the beautiful beach but quite a steep walk back. Plenty of buses for getting around & cheap fares.
Just returned from a week stay and had a wonderful time. The room we had was 1420 on 2nd floor at the back of the hotel. The room itself was very big but the bathroom was a bit small. Could do with better toiletries too. The staff are great. We had an issue with a noisy fridge which kept me awake on our first night. I mentioned at reception on our way out for a scout around next morning and by the time we returned it had been replaced! Excellent! Breakfast was fine enough choice for anyone. The hotel is in a great location as lots of restaurants around. The pool on the roof was lovely and plenty of sun beds and umbrellas. The snack bar on the roof wasn't open so can't comment on that. The pool in the basement had a really strong smell of chlorine but nice and warm if you can put up with the smell. Didn't use the gym or spa. The food at Tosca restaurant was nice. We chose the set menu which was great value however have to say the complimentary glass of cauliflower soup was nicer than The broccoli and potato one off the menu and the salmon was very bony! Quite off putting however they redeemed themselves with the puddings. I had the warm doughnuts with chocolate sauce and candied pistachios. Divine! Had ice cream and the afternoon coffee and cake at the hotel bar both very nice. Just one little drawback with the beach towels as the ones we got were old and damaged.

Good location

Posted 08-Apr-2017
Checking in was delayed and hotel did not offer any other option, I had children with me and they were getting agitated. We was not offered a drink on arrival and saw that other guests were. Breakfast was good but did not have a variety of dishes and did not cater for vegetarians. Swimming pool had poor changing rooms. The folding up bet mattress was not good as it squeaked. We ate out a lot as hotel food was dear. Staff were friendly but did not go an extra mile once i complained te check in. Other than that a good location

Great location, friendly helpful staff

Posted 04-Apr-2017
Pros: The staff
Cons: Toiletries in room
Spent 3 days here with a friend for a short break. All the staff were charming and extremely helpful. Really valued their views on local restaurants and places to go. Rooms spacious, could probably do with better toiletries in bathroom to match soa hotel. Tip for travellers you need to take conditioners and moisturisers with you, shower gel and shampoo as well if you don't want the gel from the dispenser. Spa is lovely and well worth a visit, also good value for money. Location is perfect in centre of Melieha and great access to local restaurants and transport

Great location, exceptional staff

The hotel is wonderful, rooms are very spacious, clean, the staff extremely friendly and helpful. Too bad because the outdoor rooftop pool is not heated but indoor pool is nice and clean. Smoking is prohibited everywhere, even on the balcony which I do not understand most but OK:) We had half board and the food was excellent, tasty and varied. The staff is exceptional and I definitely would recommend this hotel. The bus stop is in front of the hotel, the location is great base for exploring Malta.
