Reception and Management are a total joke! We Arrived at the Soreda at roughly 2am got checked in. I then asked if they had any food or drink as we had been travelling all day to which the reply was there is water in our room (which there was not) so I went back down to reception again and eventually got 2 bottles off of them. Baring in mind we had to pay all inclusive for the day before we arrived so we could check in on the early hours of the next morning which is a total scam because we had no all inclusive benefits at all...
We weren’t expecting a 3 course meal but maybe some nibbles or sandwiches as all of the nearby shops were shut but all they could manage was 2 bottles of water. The next morning we woke up to find that our toilet cistern was leaking as there was a big puddle on the bathroom floor. It turned out that the cistern was faulty (room 506) and did not stop filling with water as it would not cut off right when full. We reported this to reception and they sent a handy man in to fix it and all he done was pyt sealant on the U bend which was pointless. The next day we went down and reported it again and they said they would send a plumber out. They never ever did so we spend our entire holiday (11 nights) putting towels round the toilet base to catch the leaking water. Thanks very much Soreda! The reception are a total joke they do not want to know about any problems you have with the room, they just fobb you off. I also found a small crack on the plastic swipe card they issue you for all inclusive (total pain) went down and reported that is was cracked and was the charged €5 for a replacement, I asked for and Iron for the room and they then said its was at a charge of €3.50 every 2 hours I had it. All they are interested in is taking money off guests and not putting anything back into the hotel. The hotel is very dated and looks like it has not been refurbished in a long time. The food was terrible apart from the lunch menu at the rooftop bar which was like toasties, hotdogs and burgers which were nice but very repetitive. After trying breakfast down stairs one morning we found the food to be horrible so we never ate breakfast or evening meals in the hotel at all we just went out. The only good points I found at the hotel was that the dated rooms where kept very clean by the cleaning staff and also they guys that work on the roof top bar were brilliant. Special thanks to Steve, Zoran and Ross for making our stay at the Soreda bearable. These guys were always happy smiling, pouring drinks and they make lovely cocktails. All in all the Soreda is never in a million years a 4 star hotel, we seen other 4 star hotels in Malta on our holiday and they looked much more modern and maintained. If you are wanting a nice holiday and willing to pay for all inclusive holiday I would honestly look elsewhere.
Room needs updating , to many dogs allowed anywhere n everywhere in hotel ,very crowded with locals (which I understand they've been in lockdown too ) but there should be some sort of limit , food average, long ques to get your food ,pool on ground floor out of use for at least 10 out of the 14 days we were at hotel, not a lot of space around pool side , being on top floor was a pain as between 6 n 8 am you had sun beds being dragged around the roof above your bedroom , doors being banged by people back n fore toilets and bar entertainment was like going back in time (seeing the elder locals dancing was nice to watch ) , all inclusive finishes at 1pm on your departure day ,you have to pay €5 deposit once you hand key and cards back you then get given a new card to use until 1pm you get your deposit back
Good things room was very big as had a family room ,staff friendly especially roof top bar boys Rosario ,Steve and zoran .rooms cleaned every day , food at snack bar was good ,very generous with there alcohol measures cocktails in pint glasses a shout out to Jeet very happy and polite who worked at the ground floor restaurant
We visited Soreda 8 years ago and took the opportunity to visit again with Malta on the green list, but I wish we hadn't. We booked via lastminute.com and the room was terrible. We did upgrade, but it took a couple of days as their reservations manager doesn't work at the weekend. We booked all-inclusive and arrived at around midnight on the first day. everything had finished, no food or snacks available and when we asked for water for the room, we were directed to the 24/7 shop across the road...
I didn't expect them to make us a meal, but an offer of water would have been nice given that we paid for the day and didn't use anything. We stayed for 2 weeks and, food wise, week 1 was very good. nice selection, the beef in particular was tender, slow cooked and very good every time (during week 1). We had no issues with queuing excessively and all was going well. During the second week, however, this changed drastically. The food selection changed, the beef was so tough we couldn't eat it, queues at breakfast time meant that we would queue for 5 minutes or so for drinks, then a good 10 minutes for food, and if we were lucky, drinks would still be warm. On our last day, they ran out of sausages so my wife waited for them only to be told, once they had come out, that it was now a 10 minute wait for bacon. I have no idea how it is so difficult to manage getting the food out at the same time, but they are exceptional at this. Twice during our second week, the bar ran out of ice, they also ran out of tequila, which may sound like a small thing but when there are only 3 or 4 cocktails on the all inclusive, and one of them is a tequila sunrise, it's quite irritating. Another big issue is the amount of day tickets they sell to the hotel. Now I understand that during the pandemic, the hotel has done what they needed to do to survive, and they have done a good job at this, but you have large groups of Maltese families turning up, up to 15 to a group, and they monopolise the pool area, their teenage children bomb into the pool with no regard for small children, or adults in the pool, the no smoking signs around the pool seem to be just for decoration because they are completely ignored and some of these families are abusive towards hotel guests. One particular lady spoke to the poolside staff about dogs (she was actually terrified of dogs and checking whether they were allowed by the pool) when a grown man stood up and started shouting at her for daring to ask questions. I must stress that not all of the Maltese were like this and many of them glared disapprovingly at this behaviour and also at the behaviour of the older kids in the pool, but it only takes one or two to put you off a place. I must add something positive, the majority of the staff here are great. They do their best to help you out, they are attentive and they seem aware of some of the issues and they do what they can to put them right. The only thing I can assume is that there are issues at management level. (There was one morning where there were long queues in the dining hall and yet 3 members of staff were trying to fix a coffee machine - the manager wanted some coffees!). The other thing is the entertainment here. I wasn't expecting Ministry of Sound or anything, but some music from this century would have been nice. The guy that sits on his stool and sings was there 8 years ago too, probably singing the same set, and the other singers all seem to sing similar sets. If I hear the penny arcade one more time it will be one too many! Again, I think they are catering for the older, local population who like to come up for the evening. Last time we came, there was at least one other bar but this time it was only the rooftop bar, where the 'entertainment' happens. I know this was probably due to Covid but there was nowhere else to sit if you wanted to relax and have a drink. The room was comfortable, although it did feel like half the furniture was missing. We upgraded to a junior suite from the poky little room overlooking the courtyard that we were first given. Worth the additional cost but it did feel like the room had been stripped to some extent. Sorry to say Soreda, but we will not be returning to this hotel, this trip was very disappointing.
Good size bedroom. TV but no English channels. Fridge in room...
Aircon works great and it’s free. The only bar open is the roof top (level 5) so having a room on level 4 was a bonus.
The hotel allows locals to pay to come use all inclusive for the day and crams everyone in. Struggle more for sunbeds and tables on the roof top on weekends when they’re here. I understand the hotel needs to make money but when you can’t cater for the guests staying in the rooms then they shouldn’t pile more people in and you can tell it’s not guests as you don’t see these people all day until night time.
Downstairs pool rented out most days to private parties so can’t use that therefore roof top pool is packed with sunbeds everywhere possible. The pools are also much smaller than they look in the photos. Views from the roof top pool aren’t nice.
Breakfast finishes 10am and all inc starts 11am so if you want a drink in between you need to pay. Queues for food in the restaurant was a joke. The juice is not kept in the fridge so fresh juice in the morning, coke, sprite etc all warm. Lunch and dinner options are terrible for 4* and I do not consider myself a fussy eater. The food is always dry or over cooked. Chicken nuggets & chips is the only kids option every night. The snack bar menu is the best thing about the place. Ask waiters for Ice cream in restaurant or bar staff at terrace bar. Snack bar is only open 12-2.30 and by 1pm most days they’ve run out of half the food options. During our 10 days the bar ran out of ice 2 times, tequila, blue cruacao, red grenadine and when there’s only 4 cocktails on all inclusive this is annoying!!
Entertainment is just different people singing the same songs. Caters more to the older generation. There’s no tables by 9pm. Again, mostly due to the hotel being filled with locals.
The hotel staff are all very friendly and helpful! Especially the bar men who do a great job!!
Dogs in the restaurant sat on chairs being fed chicken nuggets, around the pool, sitting on tables in the bar .. very unhygienic. There was about 5/6 dogs in the hotel at one time.
We booked the comino blue lagoon boat trip with the rep for €15 which we could have booked for €6 outside the hotel in excursion places. However this trip is not recommended for people with walking difficulties or kids in buggies!!
You get 40% off your bill at the Elassia Greek& Asian restaurant which is so nice !! We ordered the Asian/Chinese food. Large portions and the food is amazing. Defiantly recommend.
Overall, hotel is OK. The food is the let down. Hotel better suited for adults / older people. Kids will be bored. In general I didn’t enjoy Malta and wouldn’t return but this was just a stop over from Turkey to avoid hotel quarantine so it done the job.
My review will be balanced
Good There is a pool All inclusive Friendly staff A Rose on arrival
Bad Dogs in the restaurant eating at the table and barking throughout your meal Locals packed in the hotel increased covid risk Food often not labelled, no understanding from servers of allergies ie does it contain nuts Poor room cracks etc Broken shower head Broken Air con No channels working on TV
Overall the only thing that spoilt the holiday was the hotel. Malta is a beautiful country and if we had not been misguided by the hotels star rating the holiday would have been better.
