Amazing place to stay in Malta 😍 Accessible mostly to all tourists destinations 😍

Fantastic friendly hotel
The staff were really friendly and went above & beyond to ensure our trip was the best it could be....the pool & hot tub were lovely & clean and if I had to look for a negative it would be nice to have a sauna as there is plenty of room and also supply of towels at the pool but that didn’t spoil our stay in any way

Good 6.0
Must try harder
Was a very nice hotel ashame the staff at reception did not have a clue what was going on. We also requested a bottle of Champagne to be in the room when we arrived which was totally forgotten even though it has been added to the room. We also nearly got charged twice for Christmas lunch and had to protest that we payed in advance for it. Must try harder

Best hotel in Sliema 💕
The hotel was amazing - very pleased with my choice. Room was top quality and luxurious with a massive super king bed (v comfortable). Complementary water bottle daily was a nice touch. View was outstanding from the balcony on the 10th floor. Great service from staff who helped me book a taxi to and from airport. Pool was lovely .....and a surprise hot tub (although I can’t remember seeing it in the advert). 5 minute walk to ferry to Valletta and shopping centre. Unlimited breakfast was absolutely fantastic and the choices were great 👍 something for everyone. No need for adapter plugs as the electrical sockets are same as in UK. Would recommend this hotel as it was amongst the nicest hotels I had seen during my stay in Malta and certainly the best in Sliema.

Fab hotel, glad I trusted my own judment
Fab hotel , glad I didn't take the reviews too much to heart I booked the Waterfront Hotel as I wanted to return to Malta after an absence of 39 years and to take advantage of low air fares. I picked the waterfront due to the location to get to Valletta, St Julian's , St Paul's, restaurant and bars. I read some of the poor reviews and was a bit apprehensive, but there was no need. Checked in late Wed night, nothing was too much trouble. Superior Room at front overlooking harbour, big enough balcony to have a coffee and catch some rays. Yes there is a road but if you are taking in the stunning scenery , you forget about the rd. The hotel room was very large and comfortable. Like to have the fridge , tea,coffee, etc, replenished every day. Extremely clean , cleaning staff very friendly and thorough. Excellent WiFi for work, etc. Breakfast - well I read some really bad reports but, we go in at 7.00, the hot selection of bacon, sausage, etc tastes excellent and how the cook makes his fried eggs so soft, I do not know. Good selection of breads, fruit, croissants. Restaurant clean, dishes gone as soon as you finish. Staff friendly and can't do enough for you. I am not easily pleased, but this hotel deserves it 4 star status. Leaving on Sunday, but it's been a pleasure and I will return. Thank you all at the Waterfront.PS - 1 fault - we were leaving at 4:00am and were told that there would be tea/coffee/croissants, etc in Reception - There wasn't.

Very good 8.0
Comfortable & spacious. Delicious breakfasts. The bed was hard & we used the duvet to lie on soften it. A topper would be good. The fridge didn’t get cold & the milk went off. The smoke/fire alarm flickered right above our bed & was annoying. Reception didn’t always give us the correct information. Room was cleaned regularly.

Fab stay in a fab hotel
We had a lovely time at the Waterfront. We were in room 1003 which was a junior suite and it was lovely. Comfy bed, tea and coffee, clean bathroom with shower and to top it off, amazing views. The staff were so friendly and the bar was reasonably priced (happy hour made it better). The pool was warm and mostly empty so we had it to ourselves. We would definitely return to this hotel.

Not for me
Lacking in character. and feels outdated. Very disappointing breakfast and dinner. The salad at the bar was fresh and good.
