    The location of the hotel is very good, close to the sea and to public transportation. The pool is very nice with salty water, but maybe too small for the number of guests in the hotel since all of them are using the pool and only few are going to the sea for swimming. We paid for an economy room and pleasantly surprised when we got a room with a sea view and a balcony, probably a good luck :-)

    The air-conditioning in the whole hotel is not efficient, corridors are very warm and it is especially hot inside the elevators. The hotel is saving on a lot of things but they should not save on air-conditioning if they want to keep 4 stars. The hotel has many, many rules that have to be followed and these rules are only good for them and very limiting for the guests. For an example, the air-conditioning in the rooms during the day is set to 30 degrees with an explanation that all of the guests are using the pool at that time. You will have to wait until 10pm if you need to stay in an air-conditioned room. The pool will close at 6 pm which is the best time in July to be by the pool; the explanation is that the guests need to prepare for the dinner. There is a Wi-Fi Internet but you have to pay 2.5eur per hour. The refrigerator is set to 15 degrees which is good enough only for drinks, don’t keep anything else inside or read the information on the package fist.

    Good price (incl. Good English breakfast ... but every day the same offer without any variation), clean, ideal location for exploring the Malta and Gozo island via rental car or cheap hop-on-hop-off-bus. Nice small pool. Generally: 3 stars in Malta equal to good 3 stars in Austria / Germany. Guter Preis (inkl. gutem typischem englischen Frühstück ... aber jeden Tag das selbe ohne jegliche Variation), sauber, ideal um Malta und Gozo mit Mietwagen oder günstigem hop-on-hop-off-bus zu erkunden. Netter kleiner Pool. Generell: 4 Sterne in Malta sind vergleichbar mit guten 3 Sternen in Österreich / Deutschland.

    Rooms with sea view: noise from traffic and very loud music disturbs especially during night (bars located directly opposite). Windows and walls with leak and poor isolation (heat in the morning, loud music during night). Zimmer mit Meerblick: Speziell während der Nacht beeinträchtigen Verkehr sowie die sehr laute Musik (Bars direkt gegenüber). Fenster und Wände schlecht isoliert (Hitze in der Früh, laute Musik in der Nacht).

    Staff is great and very welcome. Great value for money. Children can play and enjoy themselves in outdoor and indoor pools while parents can relax. Also location is great and very good restaurants can be found in 150m distance.

    Location is excellent. Staff very helpful and friendly. We had a sea view room with a balcony, the views were stunning and the balcony caught the sunshine all day. Well worth the extra cost! The room was spacious, very clean, towels changed as required. Sheets changed twice a week. Fantastic pool, very clean plenty sunbeds and entertainment during the day. We stayed on a Bed and Breakfast basis. Breakfast was served in two locations. The food was plentiful and there was sufficient variety to suit all tastes. Late check-out was available at an extra cost of €20 - money well spent if you have a late flight. We enjoyed a very relaxing stay at SeaShells Resort at Suncrest

    The main dinning room gets very busy at breakfast. Difficult sometimes to find a free table and long queues for food and beverages.

    Very good

    Location was excellent as beside the coast and the main tourist street around the corner, Beautiful coastal walk in front of hotel. Bus stop outside hotel that will bring you to other areas of island and hop on, hop off tours.

    Safety deposit box in lobby, which required waiting on staff to bring you to use it. Limited selection of draughts in bar. Fridge in room very noisy and only goes to 15 degree celcius. Noise started approx 8am due to workmen in hotel, felt this should have been left to later in morning. However, at least they carry out repairs quickly rather than letting hotel deteriorate.

    The location is convenient to reach both sides of the island.

    The sheets had a lot of dimmed stains. The shower stream was so poor that it was hard to wash the soap for the body. The air-condition in the room was very poor, it was too hot at night to get a good sleep, my wife found it hard to fall a sleep at all. The lobby is not air- conditioned at all. There is no safe in the room, there is a safe in the reception and it is 2.5Euro per day to use. The Wifi is not free, it is 1.5Euro per hour For the service: When i came and showed the voucher, they told me that i still need to pay although i said that i know that i paid straight from and the voucher explains it, they said that it cant be so i couldn't help it and paid. The day after i came and asked about that, and they found that i was right so they took my credit card for refunding me, but they accidentally charged me again, so they had to refund me twice and they did.

    fantastic hotel. rooms cleaned every day. we were given a sea view room with balcony which was amazing. all rooms mare big and spacious.all staff were extremely helpful especially when i fell over and they arranged me a wheelchair to be delivered from a local hire company. turns out i have broken my leg in 2 places swo very grateful for this. lovely pool area. beautiful hotel. would visit again.

    only thing is as i was in a wheelchair we had to use the lifts that were a bit tempramental and took forever to come to 3rd floor. also sometimes the didnt align properley so it was hard to get out of them in the chair but overall a very small problem.

    Good location, the pool is crowded but the beach is very clean. We ate breakfast a short distance away for 3.50 for a full English breakfast. We originally booked twin rooms on the third floor but eventually moved to the suites on the 7th floor which were much nicer and better for families ( ie two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a living room with a small refrigerator).

    The pillows were not very comfortable! The staff varied considerably...some were very helpful others were not (including tell us wrong information - ie no toilets on the first floor, no entrance to the beach from the pool ( there is), etc. One told us to be patient waiting for a taxi that eventually turned out it had not been ordered properly. But at least half the staff was very helpful so perhaps best to ask more than one.

    Chambre agréable, nette et propre. Repas/buffet varié, bon, different chaque soir; lieu de piscine bien exposé; l'adresse de l'hôtel est parfaite sur Malte; notre chambre sur rue arrière était calme et sans bruit. Personnel souriant et aimable dans la salle à manger; personnel parlant français à l'accueil!!!

    Le pain du petit déjeuner pas excellent!!! Mou, rassis, pas frais.
