A good hotel but the Fortina needs to put it's guests first!

4 July 2015

Set on the waterfront in the district of Sliema with fabulous views of the ancient city of Valletta the Fortina Hotel & Spa is ideally located to explore the island of Malta. The ferry to Valletta...

Nice Garden view room on the fifth floor, good food in the main restaurant with varied restaurants around the garden pool. Bar service slow watch out for the wine by the glass prices and a glass of wine costing 7€ Euro ,a half litre carafe only costs 6€ euro. House spirits cost about four Euro for 25 CL good value but gin drinkers only get 20 CL not sure if this is a legal Measure. Overall good food ,clean hotel in a lovely position Leslie&Judith

Good food and mostly good service, the friendliest staff being from house-keeping. However the décor in the rooms and corridors is looking very tired and in our opinion no longer qualifies as a 4* hotel. We had a superior room but there were faults which should have been put right before we occupied it. The management appear to be concentrating on the adjoining 5*. This was a return visit after five years and we were disappointed.

Stayed her for a week in June with my husband and 12 year old granddaughter. Visited Malta in 1994 and have always wanted to return. I was not disappointed. No complaints at all about the hotel. The room was large enough for the three of us with ample storage space and was cleaned every day. We had a beautiful view overlooking the pool and Valletta, although it was quite noisy at night due to the proximity of the main road. When I return, and I most definitely will, I will request a room on a higher level. The food was excellent and although we only dined in the buffet restaurant, other guests told us the various restaurants were lovely. We spent some time at the pool area every day and there was no shortage of sun beds and it was lovely overlooking the sea. We took advantage of the free harbour cruise which was very interesting. We had a look at the garden bar and pool area for adults only and it was beautiful. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Excellent value for money.

Could not fault the hotel for comfort, cleanliness, food. Our only gripe was that having booked a sea-view room we were assigned a garden view - upgraded, admittedly, but not what we had booked. On remonstrating we were told "tomorrow", then "next day". A number of others, it seemed, were protesting the same arbitrary allocation of rooms. Eventually we gave up and settled for what we had, which was very comfortable. An excellent holiday, though I still regret not have a room that looked out on the magnificent view of Valetta across the bay.
