Had a final excellent breakfast and then left home for Stockholm. As some clumsy Maltese ground crew had forgotten to remove a stopper from the parked aircraft we got a 3 hour delay while some expert had to check the aircraft. After a small dent was carefully inspected, were were allowed to board and fly home.
Got to the hotel, Corinthia San Gorg Hotel, and checked in. It's a fancy hotel, with a really nice breakfast. Spent the afternoon in the spa. Had dinner in a nice restaurant in down town St. Julians. Had a beer and watched the party goers on one of the main party streets in St. Julains.
... had a brilliant first day, learning so many new skills already.
Chris enjoyed the beginning of his third week at GV. Teaching 9-2.30 still, he has time to go for a cycle, do some planning, all before I return home! (I think he likes finishing work before me!!)
Brand new day tomorrow, but before that we spent a lovely evening drinking wine with Chris' colleagues at a seaside bar to celebrate the end of the schools' summer teaching ...
... Victoria, but since it was covered in the ticket price, I decided to give it a go. I was glad I did because I really enjoyed looking at the old tools and seeing the furniture and items from daily life of the miller's family right in the mill itself.
The mill museum attendant told me where to catch the bus for Victoria and I got on in short order. While most of the bus ride on Malta to the ferry was through commercial or condo streets, ...
... and in the street that Dad lived in as a young child. We're sure it'll be weird for him knowing that we were there.
We also looked at a local fishing village, Marsaxlokk, and visited the Blue Grotto although much to Sarah's disappointment the water was too rough to do a boat trip into the caves, which we thought seemed odd because it was otherwise such a beautiful day.
That night we went to Sliema and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Corinthia Hotel St. Georges Bay Saint Julian's
We have just arrived back from a fantastic fourteen days staying at the Corinthia San Gorg Hotel. We have stayed at this hotel five times over the last ten years and have to say that on every occasion we have been overwhelmed by the service from all the staff. They are all so polite, friendly and efficient that nothing is too much trouble. We always come away feeling thoroughly spoilt and totally rested.
Stayed at the Corinthia San Gorg for a relaxing 4 night break. The hotel staff are all friendly and helpful, giving directions and bus routes whenever asked. The hotel is on bus route 66 which stops outside, however infrequent and I found it easier to walk into Paceville (15mins) which offers more options.
Where does this hotel get it's 5 star rating from? Definitely undeserved. The reception/telephone staff dont seem to have any idea who is registered in the hotel. My husband made 3 calls to me before he was connected - this despite the fact I was in my room all evening. A friend left a package + letter for me on my second day which was neither handed to me personally or delivered to my room. When they realised their mistake (after I had left) someone opened the attached letter (illegal) but at least they were able to contact my friend. She gave them my forwarding address - another hotel on the island - and they did deliver it to me there. I made 2 appointments at the Spa but later realised that I would only be able to keep the second of these and cancelled the first. I arrived for my treatment only to be told that because I had not shown up for my first they assumed I would not arrive for the second! No record obviously kept of the cancellation.
Not 5 star by other than Maltese standards
Courteous, pleasant staff but no way a 5 star hotel.
No stewards at poolsides. One had to walk to order drinks etc. Queuing for breakfast. All buffet dining lining up behind mobile-phoning trade delegates from the hotel's conferencing facilities. My wife and I were on holiday but it was if we were back in the hostile commercial world. Crowds at Reception on a regular basis as each new trade delegation arrived. One was lucky to talk to Reception Staff or the Concierge.
Lovely staff but 3 star with a small plus rather than 5 star which it certainly wasn't.

My wife and I are just back from an 8 day stay at the San Gorg and it is most definitely not a 5 star hotel. The hotel itself was Ok - rooms are a bit tired looking but the pool areas were nice and, as it wasn't overly busy, there was never a problem getting a sunbed. The main problem was with the service - the staff were completely uninterested in serving the customers. It didn't start well when we were allocated the wrong room when we arrived - although it was 11 o'clock at night, we asked to change and were told that the hotel was full and we would have to check in the morning - amazingly the correct room was available (and ready) at 8 the next morning - I think this was more the case that the night reception staff couldn't be bothered to move us rather than any form of efficiency on the part of the hotel. This is also the first "5 star" hotel that I have stayed in where we had to take our luggage up to the room ourselves and bring it back down again when checking out!
This is simply not 5 star as we know it and was saved by the friendly and professional staff.
We came to stay at the Corinthia San Gorg Hotel in a rather round about way.
We stayed in a junior suite on the top floor of the San Gorg. Good sized rooms with a separate bedroom created by 2 sliding louvre doors, quite novel! Medium sized balcony overlooking the sea with comfortable sun chairs. The cleanliness was second to none with maid service every day, clean sheets, towels etc. Air conditioning perfect. A variety of restaurants gave a good choice of high standard food with the star being the outdoor seafood restaurant over looking the bay. The service was exceptional with efficient but friendly staff everywhere. The outdoor areas are secure and luxurious and the waiters patrol the pools and bring drinks, snacks etc. to you as you laze. The top floor has its own cafe with free coffee and cakes all day plus a lounge with internet facilities. In the basement is a top notch spa which we used frequently. All in all, a most satisfactory stay in a top quality hotel.
On arival at the hotel we were met by very friendly and helpful front of house staff. Our bags were taken straight to our room. The room was adequate; clean, spacious, small balcony with a sliver of a sea view. Tea and coffee making facilities would have been nice!! The facilities that were open (we went in winter) were fine. Happy hour at the the American bar and grill is handy for pre-diner drinks at good value prices!
