10/10 Exceptional

The staff at this hotel has been absolutely wonderful. We were here for three days when unfortunately the weather was terrible, so we were so lucky to have indoor amenities like the pool and spa as well as multiple restaurant options to choose from. The room is extremely nice however, not to the level that I would equate a typical five star property. Definitely a 4 though. I would say this is a four-star property that gets five stars for value because the price is fantastic. We stayed in Feb 2022 and paid only €90 per night and that was for an upgraded room. Breakfast was very good. Restaurants were great as well and very reasonable on price. It seems everything in Malta is quite reasonably priced compared to the rest of Europe. Indoor pool is great…..although lots of small kids on the weekend. It’s too cold today to use the outdoor facilities, but the rooftop pool looked like it would be wonderful in summer. I highly recommend this property to anyone based on value for the money.

Terrific Hotel
Great hotel. Breakfast, staff, amenities, location, all great. If I have one issue, it concerns building security. If they could put an elevator key card access I would feel more comfortable. Although there were absolutely ZERO safety or security issues in the whole country of Malta it would add a little peace of mind to keep us feeling safe

Had a great time
The staff were incredible, really friendly and helpful. In particular there were 2 receptionists that were Brillant! They made staying in a big hotel seem like a boutique. The only criticisms I have were a shower head that was quite low, the indoor steam and sauna facilities were quite small and the buffet breakfast wasn't brilliant. However these are relatively trivial. Overall I would recommend staying there, good location, nice hotel and lovely staff.

AX The Palace Sliema
Really enjoyed our stay at AX The Palace. It is located in a built up area but any concerns are quickly dispelled when entering the hotel. The staff are excellent and obviously very well trained. The hotel is well appointed with 2 pools and the food quality was very good - we had breakfast each day but also ate 2 x evenings + a couple of lunches. The room was a good size and overall we had a great stay, easy to get anywhere and will definitely come back again.
