... it. But, as I told Jane, it turns out that I'll have the last laugh because I should be able to get the lens back. Apparently there is an authority around here known as the M.O.L.P.O, the Meditteranean Ocean Lost Property Office. These good people clean the ocean nightly and anything they find is taken to their offices for safekeeping. The good news is that they have an office right here in Valetta so I'll be down there tomorrow morning to retrieve my lens. Who's laughing ...
... with another +30 scorcher of a day, I went to sun tan and get some good ol Vitamin D the natural way!
Dinner was nice we ate in the grand dinning room, called the Grand Cuvee. It's just like any other huge cruise ship dinning experience.... Good food, amazing service, and very fast service all done with a smile. You really feel pampered when you're on a cruise, every last detail is taken care of for you, or ...

... to look around me. It was not as dark as I’d expected and the coral wall looked simply beautiful. On the other side of me the water looked darker as the sloping bottom went down to even greater depth... and I never gave the corals another look: it was that depth that had my full attention. 'How deep does it go?’ I wondered, as I checked the depth and time once again. Time... It was time to turn. The instructors and I signalled ‘up’ at 18 minutes and the three of ...
What's just happened? Oh, yes, I just finished another tech diving course (still gotta do the exam, though)! How come it happened so fast? Hm... I’m losing track of time here. And where is’here’, anyway? Underwater? On the surface? I can hardly distinguish anymore. To the point: did the course with two other divers, a day of brain-crushing theory and three decompression dives.
The theory day was a looooooooooooooooong and ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Radisson Blu Resort, Malta St Julian's Saint Julian's
3* masquerading as 5*
My husband & I spent 8 nights here in Oct.2004. Having spent a previous holiday at this hotel 4 years ago we were shocked at the changes in staff attitude, lack of cleanliness and worst of all the food. Housekeeping was appalling - we even had holes in the sheets. We were constantly asking for basic items (glasses for instance) to be replaced in our room. Food was overpriced and undercooked. We both got food poisoning -in my husband's case it lasted for 4days - from undercooked pork in the dining room - the restaurant's attitude to our complaint was "take it or leave it". We would not recommend this hotel to anyone.
The only plus points the hotel NOW has are that it is next to the sea and close to bus stop.
We strayed at the radisson oct 2004,lovely hotel helpful staff beautiful sea views.Food very good in the bistro restaurant and al-acarte,not so good in the kon tiki restaurant for evening meal breakfast very good.Only down side you can wait a while for the lifts.shops 15 min walk away.
The hotel has a nice location, the rooms have great views and it looks luxurious. However, I think it is quit a walk to the nicer restaurants and nearest supermarket. No problem if it is really nice weather, but if it's raining...
I do not think we were staying at the same hotel as those reviewers who deemed it only 3* My husband 7 I stayed there over last christmas & New Year and it was fabulous. The service could not have been better, staff went out of their way to make sure we were more than happy. The food, especially the breakfast buffet was sumptious, and all restaurants served excellent food. As for buying soft drinks and snacks, you only have to take a 10 minute walk into the nearby shopping centre where there are supermarkets and all manner of other shops, stopping on the way for a beer or coffee! Together with christmas carollers and new year party till dawn we had a wonderful time.
Don't go there if you like zzzzzzzzz
I stayed for one week with my wife in November 2003. At this time, the hotel was in the process of fitting laminate wood floors in the rooms. I couldn't understand the considerable noise from above until I discovered why.
For no other reason, do not stay here (except on the top floor!) if you want to sleep.
A lovely hotel
We visited the Raddison SAS in August 2003 when we chose to get maried in Malta. It is a beautiful, clean hotel with staff that really cannot do enough for you. The food in the restaurant was brilliant and the Breakfasts were fantastic. I can only presume the other people who have written negative reports on this hotel were talking about a different hotel than the one that I visited. The prices for the beverages and snacks were slightly more expensive than normal, but if you are staying in a 5* hotel you have to expect this.
I would without a doubt visit this hotel again!
'5 star or what'
the hotel 5 star hmm!! the prices definately were. we could'nt fault the breakfast menu as it was 1st class could'nt ask for a more wider choice.the restaurants on site were very few and very pricey as so was the bar!. a typical price ;£6.00 for 1 ltr of pepsi to take away. no shops on site to buy drinks or snacks so you had to use their facilities. the room had a good view,but was definately only 3 star in our opinion. 5 star facilities was afforded to those using the hotel for private functions and confrences not to the average holidaymaker (our opinion).ie had a large convention and used 1/3 of the pool area where we were relaxing,and had people queueing up for food less than 6 ft away from me(so much for us on holiday)!
I think previous reviewers must have stayed at a diiferent hotel. We have travelled all over the world and felt this justified its 5 stars.
We stayed at Easter 2004. Beware this is not part of the Radisson Group but a franchise operated by a Maltese Company. We did not rate it 5 star and found it to be around a 3 star. There were many things which were very upsetting. It was 31C outside on Good Friday (according to the hotels thermometer) but they refused to turn the air conditioning on. "We don't have air conditioning until 1 May". The food was poor, we sent one meal back and did not eat in the restuarant again. The breakfast menu was very basic and restrictive. We gave the hotel a list of the things we thought were not 5 star and eventually were given a fan for the bedroom. This hotel caters mainly for conferences and short stay business people so holiday makers seem to be an irritation to them. Final word from the Customer Services Manager "We are fully booked until November so we do not have problem"
Not really 5* standard
My wife and I were there in March 2002.
Disappointing for a 5* .. the towels were thin and small.
The first room we had was just under the compressor, which droned on and off, disrupting sleep. Fortunately they moved us with no fuss.
The health centre was a disappointment too. Dirty, slippery floor in the changing room; often unattended.
Friendly, competent staff.
