Dolmen Hotel

TripAdvisor Review
Malta and Gozo, Europe
St Pauls Bay

With its contemporary features and facilities, the Dolmen Hotel makes a wonderful base for your Maltese holiday. Nestled on the edge of the sea, this impressive, largely glass-fronted hotel gives you a unique vantage point on the Mediterranean and St Paul's Bay. Location wise, there aren't any better places from which to explore the island. You'll be within easy walking distance of Bugibba and Qawra, ready to step out and experience the joys of Malta.

Experience the best of Malta's past and present at the Dolmen Hotel:

The Dolmen Hotel is a unique fusion of ancient and modern – the state-of-the-art interior with its modern facilities contrasts with one of the garden's most eye-catching features – the remains of a Neolithic temple.

Facilities at the Dolmen Hotel are wide-ranging and include plenty of fun additions, including its own private beach, a casino (the only in-house casino on the island) and two restaurants. Every day can also include a visit to either the hotel cocktail bar.

There is a state of the art spa and four swimming pools as well as a dedicated children's pool.

Rooms at the Dolmen Hotel are all air-conditioned, and feature satellite TV, direct dial telephone, safe deposit box (at a small local charge), hairdryer and minibar. Wi-Fi is also available for a small charge. Many rooms feature a balcony or terrace, and sea view rooms are also available.

The location, the facilities, the view and the ambience make the Dolmen Hotel a wonderful venue for your holiday in Malta. There's just so much here to keep you entertained. You can while away the hours with a drink and savour that amazing view, or venture out and about to enjoy the holiday lifestyle in Bugibba. Wherever you want to be in Malta, the Dolmen Hotel is a great place to start.

good 4 Star in Covid times

Review by chivisr2015 Veracruz, Mexico

We spent 1 week in the Dolmen in the beginning of September. Check-in: we were given the wrong room. We specifically booked a room with balcony and were given a room without. It was already 8 pm and we returned to reception to ask for the room change...

It took a long time for the lady to find us another room, and there was no one to move our bags - disappointing.

Room: was nice, with a lovely balcony, cleanliness ok, but little things (there was a window from the bathroom and just outside there was rubbish left by other guests)¨

Breakfast: very British, there are two breakfast rooms, no logical system, every time guests were asked to eat in the bigger room even though the smaller (and cozier) room was not full at all. Lots of guests not properly wearing masks.

Pools: nice, but more staff needed to clean up after the mostly British guests leaving all their rubbish on the floor and not bothering bringing it to the trash bin themselves.

Service: soso, sometimes we ordered drinks by the pool, sometimes some food on the terrace, it was a bit a hit-and-miss.

Our favorite place by far was the area by the water with the beach chairs, a lovely place to spend the afternoon and jumping in the ocean.

Overall, we liked the hotel for the access to the sea, and the location, however service has some room for improvement.

Zero Star Hotel. BEWARE.

Me and 2 of my friends booked this hotel via Travelrepublic and it was probably one of the worst hotels we have stayed at. From the start wed asked for an early check in which was promised yet when we arrived we were told to wait. Our room was not cleaned: smeary table in the room, hair found in bathroom and between the sheets...

The floor was sticky too. Staff were SO unhelpful and unbothered, when we voiced the concern with the room not being cleaned. The restaurant staff (we tried all of them) were extremely unbothered when we tried to make a booking. On top of this there was a heatwave and no aircon were functioning properly throughout the hotel and the lifts were broken. Within 3 hours of arriving at this disgusting trashy hotel me and my friends were having to look for alternative hotels to stay for our trip. Ofcourse the hotel claim they have no apparent recollection of me and my friends ever being there, voicing our issues in having to deal with such grotesque nonsense so early on. - Luckily we managed to find a nicer hotel albeit we had to fork out more money. I wouldn't recommend this hotel to my worst enemy.

Fantastic hotel, exceptional service.

Review by stephb249 Northwich, United Kingdom

From arriving to leaving, I could not have asked for anything more during my stay! The hotel is beautiful and the facilities were all top-notch. The staff were fantastic, day in day out, always available, attentive, and incredibly friendly. But I have to highlight the waiting staff on Christmas Eve, they put on a spectacular evening meal, and went above and beyond in their service levels...

If you're thinking about staying in this area, you could not do better than this hotel.
