Travel Blogs from Saint Julian's
On May 12th and 13th, I was fortunate enough to join the Iberian division of Coke on their "El Viaje de la Felicidad", which means, "The Happiness Trip" to Malta. They kept it a surprise until the day we left, but word leaked out a few days before. The purpose of the trip was simply - to make the employees happy. And I could't believe they let me …
... incredible...nothing like being inside nice & warm while all that is going on outside.
I like the feel of Malta the people are friendly, I was surprised that most speak English although that soon became apparent why. Even this time of year the English & German arrive to a warmer winter than back home, & they stay for 3-4months. Tourism is what Malta is ...

... important sites I had added. But it worked out.
We stopped at the Dinghli Cliffs for another photo op, then on to Rabat. We visited the Catacombs of St. Paul, which were used in Roman times to bury the dead. We looked into the Church of St. Paul, where Mass was being held.
We lunched at the Palazzo Club, in a lovely room used for receptions. We enjoyed the pork and pasta dishes, along with wonderful gelato.
... They are so old we saw a sign etched in Latin,into the wall of a gatehouse, advertising petrol for "XXXV cents a litre". It's almost unbelievable.
We also stopped at, and spent a couple of hours in Valetta, Malta's capitol. Once again, quite historic and pretty. Before we got here we would have to admit to being slightly ignorant when it came to Malta's history. But the more we learn the more we realise ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hilton Malta Saint Julian's
I agree with previous reviewers. I stayed at the Hilton on 30 September and 1 October 2004 as part of a conference booking. This is a really luxurious hotel with many conference facilities and three good swimming pools (the circular one has a shallow paddling area and thus unsuitable for swimming throughout its length). Our pre-conference reception by the pool was well run with good canapes, and the formal dinner with excellent dishes and Maltese wines. My room on 7th floor had a balcony facing the sea. The room has two large beds and amply sized bathroom. All equipment was modern. A walk-in shower though would be better than shower over bath. The Executive Club lounge on 10th floor had superb views. It offered breakfast from 07.00. All in all, a first class establishment. Not I think though a first choice for families with children, as average guests were older.
We have just booked again for the eigth time at the Hilton and it gets better and more friendly each time, the staff are the best, the rooms are all superb and the cleanliness is spot on and all in a great location, if we can't book we change dates until we can, simply the best hotel on the island.
On our 1st visit to Malta during July 04, we stayed at the Hilton Malta. We have stayed at many of the Hilton chain all over the world and we have to say they this one was fantastic, the staff were very friendly and couldn't do more for you. Our room on the executive floor was nicely decorated with 3 phones, fax and minibar, the best point was the balcony overlooking the pool area - a great place for pre-dinner wine! The main pool was good, if a little crowded by kids (but we went in peak season) and is seawater, there are 2 other freshwater pools which are more adult orientated (although kids are allowed!). The restaurants were nice, the Gazebo is a beautiful outdoor restaurant under olive trees and the Oceana is the main indoor restuarant (with a terrace area) where the food was tasty and not too overpriced. Room service menu was also large and reasonably priced.
we visited the hilton malta may 2004, what can i say, it was out of this world! the hotel was to a very high standard and the staff we're a credit to the hotel very friendly and spoke very good english. The rooms were large and cleaned daily they were really nice! The pools are massive its a place to totally relax in real luxary! We will definatley go back...
Top class , just book it!
Book this hotel. You will not be disappointed. The service, the location and the views are perfect. The staff are friendly and very efficient while the location is beautiful as you have the sea on oneside and millionares yachts in the marina on the other. St. Julians is a beautiful quiet location where you are spoilt by the dozens of quality restaurants. The Blue Elephant in the Hilton is a Thai restaurant that must be tried before you leave.
Like a previous reviewer I went with DHI international and I cannot praise them enough for their professionalism.
Nice hotel, bad city
We visited the Hilton Malta at the beginning of 2003 for one week. The hotel is in the east, in St. Julians. The main area is excellently, the people at the rezeption very nice. The rooms are uniquely, very largely, with satellite-receiver television equipped and with large balcony. In the hotel some restaurants are and bar in 5. floor with view over completely St. Julians. A beach is unfortunately missing and also the city is not very large. After long searching we found a purchase passage, in which also the hard rock cafe is. Valletta, the capital of Malta can be attained substantially larger and with one the very old busses within 20 minutes.

Loved Hilton Malta
Just returned from our first visit to Malta where we stayed in the Hilton in Portomaso, St Julians. The hotel was superb the staff friendly and helpful and the location breathtaking.
The Hilton is in a prestigious marina development called Portomaso where appartments in a similar style to the hotel can be bought for anything up to £1m. The marina is superb with many luxurious yachts and powerboats moored. The hotel is magnificent just the right mix of traditional but contempory and pool areas gorgeous. I would recommend a marina view because it is so pretty at night and theres still a lot going on. The sea view rooms are also breathtaking.
This is one place I would recommend to anyone I know. It was just a shame we had to come home.
My husband and I stayed at the Hilton from 30th June to 10th July 2003 and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the hotel and also St. Julians even though it was a bit sedated. The staff are all very courteous and polite and always happy to help you out especially the fellas who work around the pool. A slight regret we had was buying "easy dine vouchers" from our travel agent which allow you half board at the hotel for the days that you want. DON'T BOTHER. Either stay B&B or Half Board rather than try and be clever like us and have a bit of both. The vouchers you get given from reception are tatty cut up bits of photocopied vouchers which you hand over when you pay for your meal, it's very embarrassing and you feel like a cheapskate even though you've paid full price for them.
Been here twice (2001). The most beautiful Hilton I've ever seen. This marvellous hotel looks like a palace, in particular the interior. It's more a resort as the whole estate is big enough to accomodate three outdoor pools, two outdoor bars/cafeterias, situated in a very nice designed park on the sea side. There is no beach as the majority of the Maltese coast consists of rocks.
