Blue Sea St George'S Park & La Vallette Resorts
Travel Blogs from Saint Julian's
This has got to be the club central of Malta. lemme complain first, since I can barely contain my annoyance at the hotel.
The room was filthy, the bed sheets were stained, only one electrical socket worked, the toilet didn't flush, the floor wasn't swept.. and that's just the beginning of it. I gave my key to staff (you are supposed to do …
... the cars were speckled with sand. I later found out this was the effect of Sirocco, a wind that causes dry conditions in Northern Africa and storms in the Mediterranean. The wind carries sand from the Sahara desert and splatters it on every car, window and jacket on the island. I met took the bus along the coast and met Pheebs. We then took the bus to Valetta. It rained for five minutes and turned the sloping ...
... the English. What I liked about this area is that there was a great amount of respect as people approached it, especially by the English as most of them had a distant relative who served in the war. It was also a 3 minute walk from the hostel I stayed at for two nights, so I came here quite a few times to admire the harbour. The bell was nice, but I preferred the giant statue for a nobleman resting. He will never wake up, but as I looked at his view, I ...
... tourist, but its an inconvenient little phobia I have... Fish. We spent the afternoon at Blue Lagoon, or thats where the boat dropped us. Jose and I grabbed a bottle of wine (ok, two bottles) and wandered around the island, exploring and taking in the extraordinary views. Such a fantastic day and an excursion I highly recommend should you find yourself in this little part of the world. Katrina had been living there for about a year, so she knew all the best ...

There was an opportunity to go snorkeling, but it was so cold, and I have a (somewhat irrational) problem with sea life in general, so I opted out of that and decided to go for the boat ride tour of the sea caves instead.
When the cave tour was over and lunch was finished (one of the only times that I did not enjoy ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Blue Sea St George'S Park & La Vallette Resorts Saint Julian's
Absolutely disgustingly horrid!
i feel that i am being very generous giving this hotel a one star. It was the most unhygenic place i have ever has the misfortune of being at. I wen there with my son and we were given a top floor room after requesting a ground floor room. we were then charged a further 150 to swap rooms and the bins and sheets were changed once in the whole fortnight of our holiday. Absolutely disgusting in the true sense of the word! The whole complex was an absolute disgrace. The pool closing at 6pm whoever has heard of such twaddle!
Don't do it..dirty, old, yuck!
Stayed here for a week- old deco, rooms dirty, pillows stinking, cot dirty, walls marked, bath panel kicked in, toilet flush not working, lift panelling broken inside... horrid. Asked to be moved, so went to la Valetta-sister hotel. better standard here, but food not very nice, ate lots of bread and butter which was lovely. Staff very nice though.
Stayed here in August 2003
As the other reviews have said - dirty, very noisy and above a nightclub. (but you can pay extra to be transferred to the pool side of the hotel)
Probably ok for 18-25 year olds but horrid for anyone else.
The rep actually apologised on the return coach journey.
Dont do it
This is an aweful hotel. We will never visit this hotel again and would suggest that if you're thinking of going-think again!
The rooms are very dirty. This may be due to the fact that the cleaners dont actually spend a lot of time cleaning.(We returned one day to find then amusing themselves with our belongings.)
The noise continues until 4.00am and there is an extra charge for a quieter room.
The food is terrible. It can only be described as slop.
went to st. georges park on the 9th may 2004 for a week. bad choice of hotel it was very basic the food was alright if you are prepared to eat anything and are not fussy about your breakfast as it was burnt scrambled eggs six days out of the seven. it was just as well there was a famous burger joint nearby as i lived off the bread and butter at the hotel if there was any left. The resort itself was alright for 18-30's. there is far too much building work going on at one time which is a shame as there is some nice places to visit. and some good local pubs eg. the scotsman and the beggars inn. all in all i think if we had been in a much better hotel we would recommend malta.
Good value long stay
My husband and I have spent the last 7years at st Georges park complex every winter long stay for 3 months. We heve made many friends in the other people doing long stay, the management and staff treat all of us as old friends we are like one big happy family. Before we leave we book for the following winter
Have just returned from one week at the St Georges Park complex and it was the worst holiday I have ever had. This hotel has a 3 star rating in the brochures but I don't know how.
Have just arrived home after a weeks stay at the La Valette resort, reason being we arrived at 11.30pm on Tuesday 29th July and were allocated a ROOFTOP apartment with our 4 year old son which also backed on to the busiest street/nightclubs in St. Julians Paceville and was HOT HOT HOT therefore could not close balcony doors to shut out the noise, we all had a few hours sleep( if that) after sleeping out in the balcony and trying to shut out the noise of music, car horns etc, incidently we did ask for a pool view and low floor when we booked the holiday..........
My mother (50) and myself (30) each paid £250 (around $625 inc. flights & transfers) for a 14 night package holiday to the Isle of Malta.We stayed at The St Georges Park Apartments, in the resort of St Julians, which is a 20 minute coach trip from the airport.Our studio accomodation was spacious, clean, had an ensuite bathroom, twin beds, cooking area, TV, phone and a large balcony with panoramic views of St Georges Bay.The complex contained a mini mart, restaurant, laundry room, and 2 unheated pools, (the indoor pool was also used by the guests staying next door at La Valletta Hotel). Other facilities included an on site gym, sauna and 2 bars with live entertainment, bingo/singers etc. We only ate once in the restaurant and used the complex bar as a last stop before bed. St Julians had a wide range of eating houses, bars and clubs to suit all, most were closed by 12am. A couple of nightclubs, located very close to the complex, continued playing their music until the early hours. It's often said that 'location is everything' and we were lucky enough to have apartments wedged either side and below us, stopping most of the noise. (not so nice if you were staying in one of those blocks...)The down side to all this, was the March weather. Being untravelled British folk, we're used to cold, rainy conditions most of the time and had hoped, even expected the Mediterranean Climate to be slightly milder, but dispite 10 days out of the 15 being sunny (average temperature was 15C), it felt chilly most of the time. After 3 days of pretending to each other that 'it wasn't that cold', we conceded and got out the emergency jumpers and called reception for more blankets. It is worth pointing out that the staff at St Georges Park, were friendly and helpful, unfortunately we had less luck with customer service generally in Malta. A good example of this was myself and mom, commenting how nice the food was after having finnished a meal (in a resturant we'd used regularly) until we over heard thethen go to bed by 9" to a group of Spanish ladies who wondered why the restaurant was nearly empty. It ruined our evening. Mom simply said "well this little piggy wants the bill" needless to say we haven't reccomended that place to anyone!Over all it was value for money we paid (dirt cheap), everyone spoke English, and they've got a nice drink called Kinnie available in vending machines everywhere.
