Fantastic!!!! Best ever!

If you're going to Malta then you absolutely have to stay in this hotel. You just have to! Staff were courteous, helpful, friendly and genuine. The beach/ rocky sun lounging area and pool are amazing, quiet and plenty of sun loungers. There is an area to get into the sea if you fancy a swim or a large pool and 2 smaller jacquiczzi's for kids. Breakfast: slight let down, for €17 (on check in) or €20 (on the day) there were plenty of choices and food nice but a bit pricey IMO, I prefered a placed called 'Shoreditch' outside hotel with fantastic fry up and pancakes for €7. There is no free room wifi, limited free wifi in lobby, option to buy 24 hrs of wifi at €14. Probably cheaper to use a package on your mobile. Rooms: All rooms have sea view, very clean, shower gel and towels etc provided. Towels also available at the pool. Room service: pricey but nice food, you are in a 5 star after all. Bedouin bar: all the local Maltese come here, it's the 'posh' bar on the island. €4 a drink and gets started at 12am, a late one. Casino: great looking building, comprehensive Casino inside. Probably what you were expecting. Boat excursions available at hotel with diving and stuff like that. Concierge very helpful, particular a fella named George. Hop on and hop off bus service at €17 for one day, recommend as is a good way to see the island, the north route is particularly popular. Don't bother with the Blue Lagoon near Comino, rather go to Gozo, lagoon absolutely packed. Like Brighton beach on the first day of summer. Recommend hotel, I would go back.

Great location, and friendly staff

hi, Went for a long weekend with a friend and we choose to upgrade to the Executive Club rooms and the room was nice and big, great views from the balcony and the lounge was really handy in the evening for a quick bite and drink. The location is ideal as close to the main restaurants etc but away from the main bars etc so its nice and peaceful. The food however was disappointing ate at the Terrace lounge on our last day and for the price the food really disappointed but otherwise....i recommend this hotel as all staff are very helpful and there was always a sunbed available no matter what time you got to the pool. Tours etc book at concierge as they really are helpful and will only recommend good quality ones.

Study Abroad

We decided to visit Malta to visit our daughter while she was finishing her study abroad there. This hotel was an excellent choice for accomodating our wishes (near transportation and attractions, able to relax and unwind and very accomodating staff. This was a great experience.

Malta Vacation

The Dragonara was a very nice hotel for the money. The staff was curteous and helpful...however, don't waste your time with their restaraunts...especially Quadro...too expensive, pretentious, without the taste. Did not even try to be shy about their lack of quality food preparation. Just bad period.

Seaside elegance but nickeled and dimed

Best experience: Island tours with Uphotomalta. See all the highlights of Malta with a terrific guide, small group, and chance to taste local cuisine not easily found on your own. Post Office: There's one within 2 blocks (ask at desk). The hotel gift shop won't sell you stamps unless you buy their overpriced postcards. Food: Buy wine and food at grocery located by Hilton Hotel (Portomaso Mall). The hotel's only option for breakfast is an expensive buffet (which is huge and diverse); walk a few blocks for more options. Best steak ever was at Buffalo Bill's nearby (ask at desk). Weather: Constant temperatures in the mid-70s, day and night. We kept our balcony door open all night for the fresh air, but the hotel bar was below and it was sometimes very noisy early into the morning. Computer: To print your boarding pass you must rent a computer for at least 30 minutes. Casino: You have to go through a check-in procedure to enter after standing in line. Not worth it once you get in.

Hot water pots are available in the rooms but you have to pay for instant coffee ($3.00+ per cup) or tea. Bring your own instant drinks to add to water.

Awesome holiday getaway

Loved the private beach. Always able to find a lounge chair and umbrella. The Executive rooms were great. You can choose to have breakfast in the Executive breakfast room or downstairs in the normal breakfast room. Also every night at 1800 you can have snacks and drinks in the Executive main room. Rooms were air conditioned and quiet. Staff was always friendly. Thanks to the superb concierges, George and Malcolm, who assisted us in trips and where to dine.

Great location and waterfront view

We stayed for the long holiday weekend and ate mostly at the hotel because of holiday closures. The buffet was very well done, and the bar/lobby service and food was very good. The overall service was fantastic - from the concierge to the reception and fitness staff - everyone was helpful and friendly even though the hotel was fully booked. The only downside was a slight musty smell in the rooms, granted we were seaside. The bathrooms were fully renovated as per Starwood style. The hotel caters to families and there were plenty of kids so don't expect the quiet/spa adults-only getaway.

The concierge booked the hop-on/hop-off bus and arranged for free transport to the pick-up location. Great way to see the entire beautiful island and key spots.
