Recent guest reviews
Just spent a week at the Preluna, celebrating our 30th anniversary and wish it was longer. Having read some of the comments i have to say i was unsure as what to expect. We had a sea view room with balcony. Staff were polite and helpful and all smartly dressed. Our room was clean and well presented, we had daily service and no complaints. The Triton restaurant is self service which suited us, you can choose how much and what you like. Breakfast had full English, 6 varieties cereals, fresh fruit and full continental, bread and rolls, self service tea/coffee and juices. Evening meal had a variety of meats,,pasta salad, soup, rolls all what you would expect. The Sky room Penthouse which had a bar in the evenings and different singers each night, let you see Sliema's fantastic skyline day and night. Do not expect disco and late night raves it's not that sort of venue. The Spa was clean and staff friendly and helpful. Rooftop provided another area for relaxing and sunbathing with views of the sea. The cafe Sakura became a favourite mid morning latte stop off and had some lovely muffins. The Beach Club was clean and provide swimming pool, loungers and towels.The staff again we could not fault. Overall our experience was excellent, there are building works going on around the Hotel and maintenance within but this did not impact on our stay and as Malta is an all year round holiday destination it has to be done sometime.
As others have said, a dated drab hotel. Poor breakfast with sickly orange juice, undrinkable coffee. Triton restaurant is basically a cafeteria with no finesse and poorly trained staff who whip your plate away while your partner is still eating. We had the same desserts every night for a week. All inclusive offerings were poor and the mingy cocktails made us feel like second class citizens. Dreadful sun roof with peeling paint, rusty bins and a view of concrete high rises. Guests are mainly 70 plus age who don't complain so nothing changes. What I object to is the blatant misrepresentation of the facilities in the hotel brochure and on the website. Our room was a seaview which although basic was well appointed with a very comfy super king bed although no pillow or mattress protectors! Modern bathroom with Ideal Standard suite so can't be all bad! We enjoyed our stay mainly because of our room and the rest you can glaze over or avoid. But you shouldn't have to when paying what we did. Would not recommend.
I got a connecting room with a balcony for a price whcih if you visit other country in Netherlands or Sweden, you will probably get a tiny room. The beds are amazingly comfortable. But there are some weird decorating fabric which I was pretty sure were not washed so often, they did not smell fresh. Don't worry, the beds are clean and comfy - so what i did was: took the fabric away from the beds and hided them in the cupboards. When the cleaning lady came, they will be back again, but you could always hide them again! Thumbs up for the cleaning lady! I love the bathroom! It has decent bathtub and it was also clean and comfy! One small thing that i would like to note was the tiny tv (it was super small) and one of the drawer in the main bedroom was stuffed with pillows and blankets and they were not really organized. the hotel was surrounded with restaurants, one place i voted as the best one was this sushi place called sakura, too bad they did not deliver to room! (The sushi place was in the same building with the hotel) The back office of the hotel was pretty helpful - they printed my flight tickets! Oh but there was one thing i remember about the receptionist, I was there to extend my stay for one and two reasons, and there was long que on the receptionist because only one person handled payment, if this hotel considered themselves as 4/5 stars hotel, this shouldn't happen again! The restaurant for the breakfast was great! Apart from the juice machine which was too watery and tasted bad, there were a lot to choose! So choose freely! Oh and they were also lacking cutleries. Just don't come one hour before the breakfast time is over.
We got a newly remodeled suite. It has two rooms and a large bathroom. It was so new that there was still some grout dust on the tile walls in the beautiful bathroom. The room had a wonderful sea view from three balconies and from the bedroom/ bed. We give it 3 not 4 bubbles because of a few issues. First- the A/C in the living room did not work. It took a day to fix it. Then we find out they turn it off in the middle of the night. So it got hot- they said open a window or two. It was cool outside- but the street noise is not good for sleeping. Second- the Wifi. We had problem after problem- it kept logging off and we constantly had to log back in. They offer a "premium" service, we tried it and it did the same thing. They did refund the cost of it. Last, The breakfast room was too small- very crowded and poor quality. The value was good. The hotel location is excellent. Many places to eat and drink nearby and bus service is right in front of the hotel.
I was in Preluna Hotel (Malta) for 4 nights in a business travel. It seems that this hotel was a good place while ago but it is not anymore... for me it is a 3 stars hotel only. The hotel needs urgent refurbishments at least in the rooms located in the back (land view) where I stayed. Probably rooms with sea view could be better. Breakfast is also quite poor. The horse was that I saw a cockroach walking next to bread's basket!! Finally, in my last night I had also a cockroach in my room! I really will not consider this hotel if I'll need to go to Malta again...
The Preluna is an up to date hotel spotted it the last time we were in Malta and decided to give it a try, we were not disappointing. it offers the complete package , sea views from your room, private access to the sea, good rooms with comfortable beds, great food, spotlessly clean, warm helpful friendly staff, free internet access, competitively priced, buses stop outside the door, 3 Euro bus ride from Valletta, everything we wanted and a lot more. I have no hesitation recommending this Preluna Hotel.
Stayed here for 10 nights half board with my elderly mother in a sea view room. The room was quiet small, I mistakenly thought we had upgraded to a superior room, but not the hotels fault. The beds were standard singles, but it is NEVER acceptable to use plastic lined mattress covers - these were removed! The room air con did not work well - we left it on all night on 11c but the room remained hot and airless. This was twice reported but to no avail. I had requested a high floor but only got to the 4th floor, however, the sea view was excellent. There is a lot of development going on in and around the hotel, so be prepared for some noise. We visited the first week of May and the pool area was not quite finished...it only had sun loungers; there were no tables, chairs or a bar, but the staff were v helpful. The spa on the rooftop was not inviting and looked dirty. Breakfast was good, and the evening meal was variable with some dishes inedible. The desserts were all quite poor (except the bread pudding). Would advise only having B&B and going out in the evening - there are lots of good restaurants nearby. The free wi fi worked well. Overall, our stay in Malta was enjoyable, but I would not return to this hotel which is definitely not four star as stated.
Just returned from a 12 night stay at the Preluna and cannot fault it at all. Situated on the seafront with bus stops right outside, giving you the opportunity to explore the island yourselves instead of an organized excursion at Euro 1.50 per journey it is excellent value. You can buy a weekly unlimited pass for Euro 21.00. You can walk into Spinola Bay / St Julians in about 15 minutes along the promenade, there are seats dotting along the way, so you can stop and enjoy the view, there are always boats and cruise ships passing by on their way to Valletta The Beach Club was great just across the road, situated right on the rocks, so a lovely sea breeze, there are sunbeds, large umbrellas, towels and a snack bar. It is a saltwater pool and there are steps onto the rocks if you want to swim in the sea. There is also a dive shop at the beach club. All the staff throughout the hotel were very friendly and the reception staff were very helpful. We stayed in a seaview room in the Tower block which had great views of the sea and Valletta but just set back slightly from the road so we were not disturbed by the traffic as much as the front facing rooms.The rooms were not overly luxurious but the beds were comfortable, shower over the bath with good quality towels, shampoo and soap dispensers, tea/coffee making facilities, hair dryer and a free safe ! such a nice surprise not to have to pay for it The Triton restaurant food was very good with lots of choices, salads, pasta, fish, meat and soup offered every night with lots of desserts as well, so I am not sure why some people complain. The staff are delightful and work very hard to clear away and refresh the tables and always with a smile. The hotel does cater for an older clientele in the winter but there were younger people arriving as we were leaving. The entertainment in the Sky Lounge could have been better, with most acts playing the same songs and there was not much atmosphere but it was fun watching the locals ballroom dancing. We will return next May for another 12 night stay
We've stayed in this hotel couple of times. We loved the location and spacious rooms that we got. I know that not all of the rooms are that good. BUT every single year this hotel is getting worse - room services (I mean cleaning) are awful - bed sheets have stains, room phone - better not touch it, dust is everywhere :( Rooms have NON SMOKING sticker on the doors, but you can find ashtrays in I think all the rooms and yes people do smoke in their rooms :( Now kitchen things - last time we were there I saw the guy who was responsible for kitchen and dining place work. This year he was not there and food was just awful - same thing every singe day, dining place was filthy. The only thing that is positive there - is staff always smiling always in a good mood.
Location of the hotel is superb, right on the seashore, with bus stop is just in front of it. Staff are friendly, especially at the reception and restaurant. Some 10 minutes of easy walking to the port and couple of minutes more to the big shopping mall. Room was spacious, with great bed and gigantic wardrobe. Bathroom was big and clean, but shower could be better. Great selection of food for breakfast, although a bit repetitive. Also, some more sweets would be nice. Great housekeeping, and hygene throughout is on a excellent level. Only downside was the wifi, but not the strength of it, but the fact it was impossible to login without going with you facebook account. But once you've logged in, it was very good. All in all, recommended.
