Nice Hotel

Hotel and Spa is really lovely. Must warn though that if you go out of season like we did, not all the hotel facilities are open such as the roof top bar (understandably) or the bar opposite. Also booked treatments in salon but when I turned up for them I was told the girl had not turned in. One of the main reasons I chose the hotel was to have treatments for my birthday so was disappointed. Liked Malta though, but if went back would go to St Julians.

While we arrived late[after midnight] the night porter was very grumpy,imagine how we felt with flight delays etc!! We were allocated a room in the section acroa the road accessed via a tunnel and that was the first pitfall!!the smell going through the tunnel,the room was tiny, you wouldn't swing a cat in it[if you had a cat!]After a bit of complaining the next morning[after a sleepless night due to a party next door] we were given a different room which was a great improvement.The reception staff, i found a bit moody but the restaurant staff were really nice and chirpy.The location of the hotel is okay but the beach was described in the brochure as 900m away, maybe as the crow flies but lucky enough the bus stop is just outside the hotel and it only costs a few pence.Night life is quiet but there are a few local bars close to the hotel and meeting the locals can be good fun. I don't think i will be in any hurry to go back to Malta but the sunshine was great!!

My four day break was a spontaneous decision and I couldn't have chosen a better hotel. The reception staff were fabulous, nothing was too much trouble and they gave me directions and other information with ease and professionalism.
Lovely position, I had a great room overlooking the pool on one side and the sea on the other, the room was clean, items replaced every day and very comfortable. The restaurant served everything, I'm vegetarian and found a fabulous selection of suitable food without having to ask for something different. I used the spa and had a body massage and head massage to die for. Going to the beach was a nice 20 minute walk and good exercise. I didn't go down there too often as I went in to Valetta by bus which picked me up right outside the hotel reception, this was dirt cheap and an experience not to be missed. Took a boat trip around the islands and was mesmerised by everything, and I'm a seasoned traveller! The taxi ride from the airport was a history lesson in itself as I had the most entertaining taxi driver with a wealth of knowledge about his beloved Malta. Would I recommend the hotel? Absolutely. Would I go back to Malta? Without a shadow of doubt, I fell in love with the people, the atmosphere and the whole ambience of the island. Look at the reasons why you want to go on holiday. If you want a buzzy, noisy, vibey place this is perhaps not for you, but there were masses of youngsters having an absolute ball anyway. If you want a big town, try Valetta or Sliema, not Mellieha, but I am so looking forward to returning here.

A very well appointed hotel with excellent facilities and friendly and helpful staff. Not a lot going on in Mellieha but you can get anywhere on a 'bus (bus stop outside hotel)for a few cents. I can see this hotel and its location wouldn't appeal to the younger generation, but if you want service, good food and a bit of P & Q, this is the place.

Nice hotel for a relaxing holiday

We have recently returned from a week's holiday at the hotel. We had a room at the back of the hotel overlooking the gardens and pool, which is certainly the best location. There is another part to the hotel across the road accessed by a tunnel but it is a long way from the restaurant and 3 pools so if possible ask to stay in the main building. We stayed on half board and found the buffet very good -something for everyone.There is another restaurant in the hotel which is good for pizzas and pasta and if you're staying half board in the hotel you can swap your evening buffet meal for one in the other restaurant. The rooms are clean, modern and well equipped,all with balconies. There is an excellent spa downstairs if you want a bit of pampering! The pools are lovely and never too crowded and there are plenty of sunloungers. The village of Mellieha is quiet and on a steep hill so I wouldn't advise staying there if you had small children or were infirm. There isn't much to do but you can take bus trips out of the village to other parts of the island. They don't run late at night though so its taxis only if you're staying out!Overall we had a nice time but would have been bored if we'd stayed 2 weeks. One point to mention is the reps selling 'timeshare' outside the hotel - don't be duped by their sales pitch!

We will not go back!

We spent a week at the hotel in August. The location of the room was terrible. We had to use to different elevators and walk through an underground tunnel to get there. Who knows what will happen if there is a fire in the building. We wouldn't get out! Using the balcony would not have been any use since our view was the opposite hotel room. The only view was other rooms and the sky.
The room in itself was nice, two modern bathrooms, a great bed, a flat screen TV, deposit box and a mini bar.
Pools (3) were nice with free sun beds, and pool towels free of charge!

Breakfast was great but the dinner buffet not worth paying for. Different buffet names like Mediterranean and Maltese, but same dishes.
The hotel also had another restaurant with hamburgers, pizzas and pasta dishes. That restaurant was better. Great pizzas!

The hotel does not offer luxury, nor romance. The Mellieha village doesn't have any nightlife and there is no bus connection at night.

We won't visit Malta again; it was crowded, dirty and had lousy beaches!

The best during our stay in Malta was the Arches restaurant. The Arches is Malta's best restaurant, located in the Mellieha village, just opposite the Maritim hotel.
Make a table reservation! The food at the Arches is fantastic! The service too! It's not cheap but worth every penny!

Great Hotel in a One-Horse Town

We took a late booking in unallocated accomodation for 1 week only so Malta seemed a good choice having a fairly short flight time. Having never holidayed in Malta before we were unsure of what to expect. The hotel itself was superb - we stayed in the newer rooms which are over the road but accessed by a tunnel - quite exciting at first but a chore if you forget something for the roof pool on the other side. The food was good - nice choice each evening and excellent variety throughout the week. The hotel was spotlessly clean, staff welcoming and friendly, and room very impressive - minimalist and even a plasma screen TV on the wall. Free safety deposit box, air coniditioning and a mini bar which we had far more from than they charged us for! Indoor hot pool and a choice of roof pool and ground floor pool are excellent. The location though is a different matter. A 20 minute stroll down hill to the beach
is ok but coming back it maybe better to wait for the bus. Nightlife is quiet to say the least - one decent bar and that is only 'lively' on a Sunday when a live musician plays. Bus trips are ok during the days(buses don't run at night)- we went to Bugibba and Sliema and took a boat harbour tour of Valetta. We enjoyed the stay as it was for only 7 days - any longer and I think we would have become VERY bored.

Pleasantly suprised

We booked a late deal to Malta, Allocation on Arrival. After dropping off other people on the coach at hotels which we thought were a bit dingy we were dreading our stop. However we were pleasnatly suprised. the hotel was clean, the room was cleaned everyday. We stayed HB and the food was excellent, different menu everyday, and the restaurant was a joy to eat in, no queuing for buffet meals. The only gripe we had was that there was no where inside the hotel to sit and have a smoke, but we can understand why. Melliah Bay itself was a bit of a dissapointment, we only stayed for 7 days and had seen everything, so a 14 day holiday would become boring. We did do a few trips though. Another plus for the hotel is the 3 pools, although not large by any means they were never busy, also plenty of sunbeds free of charge. Safe depotsit box and min bar in the room too. Our room overlooked the main street, but once the patio doors were closed no noise at all from outside. also free air con. Good hotel.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Maritim Antonine Hotel And Spa

Great Few Days

from Busterbills
Super Hotel we have stayed in the Maritim in Mauritius and this hotel rooms are on an equal, yes we had a room on the village side on the road in main hotel first night lots of traffic noise after that no problem.
Breakfast wonderful selection, did not eat in the hotel other than breakfast so can't comment on other food.
Indoor pool very nice shame it was on a different level to the spa but no problem.
Overall super hotel for a few days winter break and great rates worth every penny.
Do visit the church.

Many good things, several bad

from esc111
This hotel has many good features, as highlighted in the other reviews. The food is very good, the pizzeria particularly and breakfast is outstanding. The rooms are large and well equipped. However..
The bars are not open until evening, not even a pool bar; probably due to the time of year (although temperature was 80F); so you have to go to the pizzeria and carry a drink back through this maze of a place, using the slow lifts to whatever pool you are using.
Main problem was the air conditioning, which was essential as the windows had to be closed due to early morning building work all around, and the busy main road outside. But the air con is useless. Despite complaining, I got nowhere; during the process I was told there is no duty manager in the evenings! I gave up eventually. The walls between the bedrooms are also very thin, whether this is an issue depends on luck. The staff seem poorly motivated and communication between them and the management is poor. I have tried to supply constructive feedback to the hotel via their group website, but heard nothing.
Overall, it is a shame, because with a little bit of effort the place could be outstanding.

Nice hotel

from GRAEMEY
Nice hotel, nice large rooms, pretty good food, nice public areas. Would certainly recommend.

Best Hotel in town

from Sanderja
As a group of four we initially booked two hotel rooms at the Solana but upon arrival we were informed that unfortunately a mistake had been made and we had to go to Pergola. They hardly apologised and said there was nothing they could do. Personally I suspect them of overbooking the Solana and relocating guests to the Pergola, which has the same owner (I’ve read this happened to other people as well). Pergola was not o.k.: small worn-down rooms surrounding a claustrophobic little courtyard with a mini-pool. Our friend couldn’t see the sky from their room since it was located in the far corner of the square! (Actually it seems the apartments are much better, at least much better located.) Breakfast was terrible.
The next day we spoke to our travel agent and the manager and after some negotiating and some phone calls to the head office (and a small additional fee that Pergola refused to pay because in their opinion it shouldn’t make a difference since both hotels would be comparable. Don’t believe that one for one minute!) we eventually were relocated to the Maritim Antonin. As a result of this we saw all three hotels and Maritim was FAR better than the other two. The garden pool area is very nice, the roof terrace is has a fabulous view and the breakfast is incomparable with what Pergola had to offer. Staff is very friendly and helpful. From the hotels in the city I think the Maritim is definitely the best choice.

Recommended hotel...honestly

from Amytomsam
Positives
Fabulous business class spa hotel
Excellent village location
Bus stops 10 yards from hotel front door
Plenty of local places to eat at really reasonable rates and high quality...Try the Arches opposite...AWESOME!
Prices totally reasonable for pool side bars and mini bars
All facilities you could reasonably need
Quiet...double glazing worked well
Food of very good quality and lots of choice
Overall I'd give it 8 out of 10

Negatives
Roof pool needed a bit of maintenance with tiles peeling off chucked in the surrounding bushes!...sloppy really in context of overall hotel
Reception tardy in handling incoming messages and requests for room supplies
Air conditioning not effective enough
Seal around the bath had perished and so water damage was evident in the bedroom and probably the room underneath us...attention to detail!!
Couldn't receive English speaking TV programmes in the hotel room....hotel mainly frequented by Germans as is German owned...all channels were thus tuned in to German channels!!
Lifts small and slow...needed to get anywhere
Minor issues but annoying.....

Best Service in Town

from london101
I recently treated my girlfriend to a short break in Malta and chose the Maritim Antonine. I have stayed in many Hotels in many countries and The Maritim is close to the top of my list in regards to service and facilities. All the staff we encountered from the receptionists to the Bar staff to the staff in the Spa were outstanding. It is very rare to come across such attentive staff who actually want to serve you as a guest and ensure your holiday is perfect.

The Hotel itself is in a fantastic location, a 10 minute walk to the beautiful beach and surrounded by great restaurants although we found the Hotel's restaurants where more than adequate. All three of the swimming pools are in great locations and the night time BBQ around the garden pool should not be missed.

I highly recommend this Hotel if you are planning a trip to Malta and if you do visit make sure you ask Dom the Bar Manager for one of his special Singapore Sling cocktails

Lovely Hotel

from Lsinclair
This is the first time we've been to Malta and we didn't want to stay in a typical busy resort area so chose Meliaha which was very quiet..... a few shops, 1 or 2 bars and a couple of restaurants. And everything was closed by midnight. We took a taxi into Buggiba a few times for the nightlife, 7MP each way.
The hotel is actually 2 buildings with a busy main road running between them, hence the tunnel under the road. We specifically booked a room with garden/pool view because of this and it was worth the money. I wouldn't have liked the other building as the balconies looked out over the main road into other balconies or onto side streets. No views whatsoever.
The room was large and comfortable with nice furniture and decor but it had seen its best days. Marble dressing table was cracked in half, water damage round ceilings and skirting boards etc. The cleaners and guy who fills the mini-bar was early and quite noisy, use your do-not-disturb sign if you want to sleep past 7.30 in the morning.
The lobby, bar, restaurant, spa all very nice. Good friendly helpful service throughout the hotel. Everything was very clean except the downstairs pool area. It was washed down every morning but my mid-afternoon it was quite dirty....wear your flip-flops!
The roof pool is lovely, quite small though but the roof terrace has absolutely no atmosphere whatsoever. Beds and parasols only, even a few plants would make it more attractive.
Sunbeds were not that comfortable, no matrasses on them. Pool towels available at the reception free of charge. We had no problem getting a bed each day in the morning or afternoon.
We went HB and the food was fine, not a great choice but nothing to complain about either. Best thing about this hotel is the pizzeria downstairs. HB guest can also eat here instead of the hotel buffet to the value of 10 MP per person per evening meal which covered a starter/main course or main/sweet. You pay drinks separately HB or in the pizzeria. Food was excellent.
On our last night we booked the fish BBQ bij the pool. Very nice, romantic, table service.
The lobby bar was boring, piano player every night. The bar doesn't open until 6 in the evening. We sat with our holiday rep for over an hour without a drink one morning.
Good mix of international guests.
Meliaha has got the best sandy beach on Malta. Its down a very, very steep winding road though. We got the bus up and down each time, 50 cents each way. Bus stop is just outside the hotel.
We took the bus into Valletta as wel, no problem good service.
The beach is of course very busy but perfect for young kids. Reasonably clean with choice of places to eat.
We thoroughly enjoyed Malta especially with 3 day car rental to see the island and Gozo. The hotel was lovely and we definately had value for money. We probably won't go back to Malta for at least another 10 years as we feel we've seen and enjoyed all it had to offer. We would definately recommend this hotel if you are looking for peace and quiet and early nights.

Lovely Hotel, fantastic Island

from lennylu
We really enjoyed our stay in this hotel. Our room was large and well decorated and we found the housekeeping to be excellent. We found all the staff to be extremely courteous and friendly.

We stayed on a bed and breakfast basis and cannot comment on the food as we did not eat in the hotel during our stay . While the food looked good we found a lot of choice in the village and choose to eat somewhere different each night.

The hotel pools were very nice however we found that there was a shortage available sun longer's as many guest came down early in the morning and left there belongings. We felt that the hotel should have been more pro active in removing these belongings and freeing up the longer's if people were gone for a long time.

The lifts were also a problem we often had to wait ten or fifteen minutes particularly at meal times to get a lift as they are very small and always seemed very full.

Malta its self is a beautiful island and we found the travelling by the local bus was a great way to see the island. It is very cheap and an experience not to be missed. The bus stops just a few yards away from the hotel.

Gozo is also a must see.

In conclusion we will definitely be back to Malta and will definitely stay in the Maritim again.

marvellous maritim

from AnneJones
Hi - we stayed through our time share, our rooms were clean, spacious and comfortable. Housekeeping was efficient with towels changed regularly. We made use of the pizza bar downstairs and the food was of a good standard. (We stayed with our 15 year old daughter who just wanted to go to the pool/beach so we just relaxed and did not do a lot of sight seeing this time but plan to go back when it is a little cooler and go to gozo and valletta.)
The hotel also has a restaurant but we didn't use that so can't comment on the food there, but it looked as if they paid attention to presentation etc and we could see them laying out the tables nicely for the buffets.
We especially enjoyed the swimming pools at the hotel. The hotel had a number of nationalities staying and this was nice in that it just wasn't a British resort. We hired a car and the drive took us about 45 mins from the airport, we arrived early before we could check into our room and the hotel gave us pool towels and we could leave our luggage before we our rooms were available. The car gave us the freedom to visit a number of excellent sandy beaches nearby where you can hire umbrellas and chairs. On one beach I managed to get stung by a little jelly fish, only mention this as a caution, hopefully that won't happen to you.
We also visited Medina at night which was very pretty. However if you are not driving I am told Malta has a good bus system and the bus stop is very close to the hotel. The rooms have a mini bar which the staff like to restock every day and they knock on your room first thing to replenish it, if we didn't want to be bothered I just put a do not disturb notice on the door. You can just about fit in milk and a few extras into the mini bar fridge which is handy.
By the way if you do use a car beware of the underground car park as it is a spiral descent and very tight and only good for a small car. You can usually manage to park by the side of the hotel or across the road by the church as alternative parking. All in all we enjoyed the stay at the hotel and visiting northern malta and plan to go back again.

Loved it

from SwindonCjm
We have just returned from a week at this hotel. We found it clean, comfortable, well kept and up to the standard we expected with good service. Our room had a lovely sea view. The food was good with lots of choices every day and the option of the pizzeria as well. We ate there a couple of times, the food was nice but service slow.

We enjoyed the indoor pool and jaccuzi- it wasn't hot enough for the outdoor pool yet, so it was good to have it.

With bus stops right outside, its well placed for travelling around. The buses are great but no-one's in a hurry. Just admire the view..

Mellieha is a lovely little town. Away from the big resorts but within reach of a nice beach.

Top Local Tips for Mellieha

Vry quiet Hire a car. They drive on the same side of the road, parking is easy and free, I was told the hotel car park was full but there's usually a space nearby.Beware, park under a tree and the birds will cover it ! There's not a lot to do here, a few small shops for basic things, in fact shopping doesn't seem to feature much on Malta at all.

Visit the church Go both to the main church and also the one opposite (about 50m down the hill from the bus stop) in the grotto. Worth the efoort of all the steps - but all of Mellieha is hilly.

take the bus it is all hills so take a bus it gets very hot
