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
I want to go home!
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.
The room we were allocated was over a thumping disco which went on until 6am and when we asked for a quieter room was told we would have to wait until the next day pay an extra £27.
The accommodation was terrible with no air conditioning and the temperature in the 90's. There was no ventilation in the bathroom. The shower was a handheld affair and as there wasn't a shower curtain the water soon covered the floor. The toilet pan looked as if it hadn't had a proper clean in ages. The mattresses were lumpy with springs poking out and were covered with a thin sheet. My partner had an itchy rash on his back while we were there, I dread to think what was in the mattress!
The food was terrible, watery and tasteless and frequently ran out, especially at breakfast. For some reason the air conditioning in the dining room was not working and it was most unpleasant eating in a temperature of over 90 degrees. Most people who had payed for an evening meal ended up eating elsewhere.
Most of the facilities advertised were closed and the entertainment provided was very amateurish and seemed to be provided by children most nights. This took place around the pool so there was no escape from the noise of music.
The maids did come every day and gave us clean towels and mopped up the bathroom floor but the rooms never smelled clean.
After speaking with other guests we seemed to have had a better time than they did! It felt as if we had spent a week in prison rather than a week enjoying ourselves on holiday - I couldn't wait to come home.
Hot Hot Hot
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..........
In the morning we asked for a room change which was dealt with reasonably well, I think we were maybe 5th on the list, only to be told that there were none available that suited in the St, Georges.
Suitcases in tow and very grumpy 4 year old we moved to the La Valette and paid £70 for Air Con, Sea View but on the 8th Floor...apartments were clean enough view was lovely.
None of these hotels are suited for children under 16 unless u stay in the complex i.e Pool all day and Pool entertainment at night as when u venture out at night the place is HEAVING some children were actually frightened by the niose & people. Have been to Malta 5 years ago & stayed in Bugibba which was quieter but much nicer place than St.
Julians we had a great time then, If u are a group of Guys Girls go for it u will love it, for kids NO NO.... Malta aint got much...........
Don't Forget Your Cardigan
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.

I had a total of three days in Malta. One of those days was spend on the islands of Gozo and Camino. The other two days were spend on the island of Malta. Malta is about 50 km south of Sicily. When I first saw it on the map years ago, I figured it was part of Italy. It is not and it is actually one of the most densely populated countries on Earth. …
... restaraunt and finished breakfast before 8:00. I'm supposed to be having a relaxing break what is going on? Someone had not put their watch forward an hour, his name begins with T and ends with homas. Me and Jill potter about for a while but are still next to the pool by 9:00. Start reading my book, another treasure hunt involving the church and templar knights in the vein of Dan Brown but ideal holiday reading. Had a swim then caught up on my sleep for ...
... the near vicinity need to be picked up in small buckets rather than with a roof it takes out the lot of them. Such a joy to be among a people that the letters O H & S are just that, letters in the alphabet and not an acronym for regulation, cost, stupidity and the simple things not able to be done any more. Anyway let's not go down that rabbit hole. More on rabbit later - the Maltase national dish. Right the way down the street there are these contraptions set up ...
... and followed our map down a windy country lane to the lakes at the bottom of the hill. The lakes were man-made by an Englishman and was very strange to see such a vast lake just nestled in the hillside - was very pretty though, especially when we spotted the small waterfall. See photos! Afterwards we walked all the way to ...
After the bad weather of the weekend, today seemed much better - although it is still quite chilly in the mornings - we can't wait for it to warm up especially so we can do some more things in the evenings. Chris just has his morning class but follows this with lesson planning for the week and then a gym session so he's ...
