Very nice little hotel, nice cleaning staff and reception staff, also very professional owner that was interested about our well being, alright rooms, nothing special. Only negative was the Bar, Restaurant & Pool attendant, that had some severe anger management needs, i happen to miss a sign with that no drinks purchased outside his pool area was prohibited which i sincerely apologized about missing, but he kept going on about it, as my Kinnie was some kind of major obstruction for them to meet the financial goals for 2017. He felt... to use his own words a grave injustice had been done to his pride... :-D jesus christ what a jerk. Same person was also responsible for breakfast in the homebuild breakfast tent with black Mold all over the roof, the floor was made out off particleboard which is non sanitary to say the least in a restaurant environment. The breakfast was had not passed s sanitary inspection, i will not write anything about it, it was so bad...... The Juice tasted old bicycle hoose......

I guess It was a nice hotel 10 years ago. Now is old, dirty, and IT DOES NOT HAVE FREE WIFI. In 2017. Its quite expensive, and you will feel like in a cheap road motel. Please, see the picture I attach of the shower curtain. Is this a 3 star hotel? I would never go back again, and I dont recommend you to go. It was disgusting. Also they dont treat you well. I asked for some ice one night and they were so unbelievably rude with me, they said at least I "should have de decency to buy a drink too". Its a hotel!!! If I want ice, you give me ice. Charge me if you must, but calling a guest indecent for asking for some ice? Unbelievable. 0 stars, please dont go to this hotel.

My partner and I have stayed at this hotel this month and we had a great stay! The location is really good and staff are very helpful and friendly! They gave us a lot of recommendations and tips. The view from the room was amazing! I would definitely recommend this hotel.

I was in the hotel from 10-15/08.the last day we made the check out and we left our luggages in their storage area. When we returned back to take them we found one luggage bag with all souvenirs and presents .(approximately 80euro).i made complaints .i said that i want to talk with the manager of the hotel and the receptionist said it is impossible.and then i had to take taxi for the airport and pay 27euros ...i demanded at least 30euros for the taxi and they refused it..when i returned in greece i send them 3emails because i m working also in a hotel and i know about this situation and they didnt reply to any of my emails...this is not a good policy of a hotel...its a shame....

Spent last week at this Hotel which met all my expectations. My room and all the public areas were clean, staff were happy, helpful and pleasant. Location was good on a lovely bay but an area that, for me, benefits by not being over developed. My reason for travelling was sightseeing and photography and the Ambassador was a perfect base. The restaurant and bar is independent I ate there 3 evenings and found the food quite acceptable.

I am going to try and give you the most honest review that I can, the good and the bad! Good points It took about 30 minutes from the airport (we had private taxi so no drop offs) the reception staff were lovely. Our room was on the 2nd floor with a sea view ( this is a must) the views are fantastic! The rooms are fine, basic but clean and perfect for a base. Fresh towels and beds sheets changed every other day. The cleaning staff were lovely and did a perfect job. Air con in the room was free and very good. Good restaurants locally. The Hotel is in a quiet location. The buses on the main road run frequently and you can get anywhere on the island for €2, if you keep your ticket it can be used again for up to 2 hours after purchase. Buggiba is about 10 minutes and Mallieha about the same in the opposite direction. Both have lots of bars and restaurants. Bad Points No tea making facilities- we hired a kettle from reception at €1.50 a day. These aren’t always available so you may have to wait for someone to leave. There are 4 floors and the lift isn’t always working so be aware if you have trouble with mobility that you may have to use the stairs. We arrived at 9.30 one evening, the bar and restaurant were closed but We found a convenience store open till late so got some snacks. The walk to the shops is about 5/10 minutes. If you walk to the left it’s quite a climb up a hill so I would suggest going right, it’s less of an incline, there is a path so I would take it as the road is full of pot holes. The TV only had 3 working channels, the one we could watch was BBC World news. ( I know, you don’t need a TV on holiday but it shouldn’t be mentioned if it barely works) The pool and restaurant is run independently to the hotel and that’s were the biggest problem lies. The owners aren’t at all pleasant and can be rude. The pool opens at 9am and closes at 6pm prompt. It’s clean and there is a shower, it would benefit from a snack bar as you’re not allowed to take your own. The restaurant opens at 7am for breakfast until 9am. There is tea, coffee, juice. 3 types of cereal, toast and a cold or hot choice. The cold is meat and egg, the hot - 2 x tinned sausage, half a tomato, fried egg and baked beans. Be aware you will be told off if you are a party of 2 and sit on a table for 4! The bar and restaurant is closed all day but opens at 6pm - 9pm for evening meals. We were B&B but did go down one evening and had a meal which was totally inedible - we complained but were still told we had to pay €20. One lady refused to pay and they called the police! There were a lot of disgruntled guests which made me feel very sorry for the reception staff. A holiday is what you make it and we had a good time - the points I have made are not to put you off but just to give you an idea of what the hotel is like.

Booked for a 10 night holiday and was concerned after reading some of the reviews. We found this to be a friendly clean hotel with good transport links for around the island. Great restaurants locally. We will definitely stay here again. We brought our own travel kettle as there is none in the room. The rooms are clean and functional with comfy beds and a small but perfectly adequate bathroom. The room was cleaned daily with clean towels every other day. If you want a quite relaxing holiday on a budget I would recommend. Although if you have mobility issues probably not the best location as it is hilly, but lovely views. Swimming pool was good with plenty of sun beds and toilet and changing facilities which were better then some local cafes. If you want 5* this is not for you but if on a budget then this is great. Will be stopping here again.

I have stayed here for 5 nights and tbh people are giving the bad reviews are just expecting 5* treatment. Staff more than helpful rooms clean and tidy cleaned everyday. If you are looking for somewhere quite secluded then this is ideal tbf we caught buses although summertimes are busy, the breakfast wasn't the best but it's a budget hotel people are expecting a lot more. The pool does get extremely busy with people pAying to use it but then there are lots of hotels in Malta that also offer this.. please if your not wanting to be in all the nightlife places and relaxing holiday don't let bad reviews turn your head!!

Just home from a very relaxing week in Malta. My friend and I booked this hotel as it was cheap not expecting too much after reading previous reviews on here. Firstly it's most definitely in a prime location the view from the hotel is spectacular. The hotel itself is a 3* so don't go expecting 5 the room had everything we needed and was way better than expected. It really would have benefited from a kettle tho. The restaurant trattoria del mare are run independently from the hotel, pool opens at 9 and closes at 6, but was lovely and clean with plenty of beds. The restaurant we had breakfast x2 was not the best I've ever had but was sufficient the evening meals were lovely tho, and we found the husband and wife team and staff very friendly. Not much in the village at all a few restaurant s and a couple of shops, but 10 mins on the bus and you're at bugiba 10 mins the other way and you're at melliha both much more lively and cheaper for dining etc. Loads to do in Malta and the hotel is ideally situated to give you the best of both worlds :-)

Good view and nice pool... that's it. 38 ° there is not a mini bar to have some fresh water, the price for the Wifi is 1,50euro/20minites, the electric sockets do not meet the other european standards so you must find one (and surprise, you can BUY it at the reception). I did not find it extremely clean.
