A week in the sun solo

Review by 698vickyk

I stayed here for a week the start of October by myself for some time out in the sun. The hotel was built in the 1980s so is slightly dated, however, I could not fault this hotel on any level. The staff were amazing and friendly...

The drinks and food were good and drinks were never watered down. the pool area and sunbeds were plentiful and always cleaned each day. The room was always kept clean and again friendly staff. The hotel itself was always kept spotless with helpful hotel rep and reception staff. The noise people are suggesting that is happening at the hotel with workmen is actually in the adjacent hotel (building upwards, again!) I can't comment on the nightime entertainment as i always went down the strip at nights but they did have entertainment on. The hotel follows covid guidelines extremely well and there is always hand sanitiser around the hotel. Met some lovely people and had a lovely relaxing stay - thank you!

3 Star Hotel not 4

Review by 4gg13 Kalkara, Malta

This hotel is tired and currently having work done on the upper level. The interior of the hotel needs a good update with walls and floors being repainted and deep cleaned.
The hotel next door is being demolished and workmen arriving at 6.30am means you don't need an alarm clock. The air con is too warm, not being able to open the door due to the noise and dust...

There are no tea and coffee making facilities which reduces the hotel to a 3 star not a 4, no toiletries other than soap and an all purpose liquid located in the shower. Having said that it was OK for a weekend but as I usually stay in 5 star hotels, I was expecting more from a hotel with Palace in its name.

Review by R7695EVsuzanneb

Had a 3 week stay with my daughter in October for her 50th birthday. Just a couple of gripes for me. Had a seaview room which was great after upgrading from a courtyard room which you could shake hands with your neighbour it was that close...

Room was basic but very clean only thing was the toilet didn't flush properly. I did spend one night with ants crawling over me but that was sorted out next day and I wasn't the only one with that problem. Food for me was not so good. Any meat that was on the menu was either too tough or very salty and I really didn't want to eat bugs bunny. Pool area was cleaned every day and there were ample sunbeds to go around just the prime areas to put them was limited. It could actually do with some activities during the day to liven it up a little. Entertainment was a bit hit and miss but they did their best. The staff were fun and very courteous and went out of their way to help where necessary. Would I go back to this hotel absolutely. Already looking at booking for next year.

Excellent stay don't believe the silly reviews

Review by Rob G Liverpool, United Kingdom

Stayed all inclusive 2nd - 9th October, sea view room

Weather amazing for October

Room Extremely clean and housemaid came every day Bathroom to a high standard Air conditioning not too good may struggle in summer, had it on 24 hours a day to keep room cool Fridge excellent Not bothered about the TV or kettle issues as don't go on holiday to stay in room Seaview is brilliant, lovely view yo wake up to and nice to finish off on balcony, thunderstorm one night, amazing views of the lightening over the sea

Tip - book sea view room through your travel agents, we paid £49 more, hotel wanted  14 euro a night to upgrade I was informed by another guest

Outdoor area Excellent outdoor area, perfectly clean, no mould or algae as some people commented maybe it's had a good clean, similarly no algae in pool Pool and pool area cleaned every day Salt water pool but only moderately salted so not a problem Easy access to sea which was quite warm

No problem getting sun beds first week of october

Indoor pool area Didn't use this Pool same temperature as outside Jacuzzis didn't work

Pool bar Excellent with good shaded areas

Food Breakfast - typical all inclusive breakfast so ok

Lunch  - we ate at pool bar every day, ai snacks were excellent, nicest lasagne I've had in an ai hotel.

Dinner - excellent 5/7 nights, the other 2 were good.  Excellent meats, pies, fish etc Soups were nice each night The desserts were some of the best ive had on ai especially the cheesecake

Overall really excellent food for dinner

*one comment to make about dinner is that due to the current rules you cannot serve yourself hot good they have to serve you, but you help yourself and share serving utensils for soup, salads and desserts, absolutely ridiculous this!  So  obviously a money saving exercise disguised as health procedures!

Entertainment Usual ai type of entertainment, doesn't bother me this as I'm there to drink and chat with new friends

Indoor bar Lounge bar excellent with skysports for all the football matches

Outdoor bar Excellent, good choice of drinks, get as many as you want on last orders, no silly rules, no queues

Staff Every single member of staff was polite, well mannered and courteous, your nice to them and they're nice to you, simple

Other Still doing the silly mask wearing, but that's currently maltas rule, although staff left you alone if you just wore it at the bar

Hotel is currently in the process of adding rooftop facilities which they told us includes a rooftop pool

The only thing I didn't like is that it's not close to a beach, 20-30 minutes away on bus which you can get outside hotel

Directly Outside hotel Pizza place Chinese restaurant Several pubs

I will definitely be returning to this hotel
