    Historical Traveler Reviews Preluna Hotel & Spa Sliema

    Wonderful Holiday

    from

    We found the hotel to be in a great location in Sliema just by the sea and minutes walk from one of Malta's main shopping areas. Plenty of facilities within the hotel whilst our room was kept very clean, the food was good and the staff were friendly at all times. Do not miss visiting the Spa a perfect way to relax after a day exploring the great historical sites of these islands.

    I would definetly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Malta.

    Nice for the price

    from

    O.K, so the Preluna isn't the newest hotel in Sliema, but the location is good (about 5 minutes walk from St Julians and 10 from Paceville) and the price is very competetive.

    I stayed for a week from 28 November to 4 December, and had a very nice time. I found the rooms to be clean and tidy, and the staff helpful.

    Half-board included a buffet breakfast and dinner which were much nicer that I expected, they have a different theme each night (Italian, Maltese, Chinese, etc.)

    There is a bus stop outside the hotel which runs to just about everywhere for between 15 and 40 Maltese cents, and a cafe attached to the hotel (where the all-inclusive guests can get their freebies ;-) which does good coffee and local savouries for a reasonable price.

    All in all, I thoroughly enjoyed my stay..

    Well Recomended

    from

    My wife and I stayed at the Preluna Hotel fro 18th to 28th July 2004 and have to say that in general we were very pleased with the accomodation and staff. We have travelled and stayed in many hotels throughout the world and do not expect or require absolute perfection from holiday Hotels. We do expect value for money, comfort, cleanliness, good staff etc.

    In this respect we got everything we wished from the Preluna, the exception being problems with the air conditioning system (which we understand had been recently partly updated and was causing some serious concern at the number of breakdowns).

    We had sea view room on the 12th floor of the main part of the hotel with a fanastic panorama including the Harbour entrance.

    Contrary to other comments the room and towels were very clean and the buffet food excellent and varied. Staff very pleasant.

    Yes the pool is across the road but this is not really a problem or dangerous as trafffic on the promonade is not free flowing and at high speeds.

    The pool is clean but apart from a very small section is not suitable for litle children or non swimmers (ie 1.5 metres and over in depth).

    The new indoor fitness centre and pool is outstanding for an hotel of this class.

    The hotel is probably 3.5 star on UK Rating but trying hard to improve

    I would not hire a car as there is little parking space available in this area of Malta (and plenty of traffic wardens). Buses are cheap about every 5-10 minutes from next to the Hotel. Fares very cheap at generally 15 cents per journey.

    You either like or hate Malta, there is no middle way.

    I would certainly recommend this hotel but remember that this is Malta not middle England. Enjoy it for what it is and do not grumble about what it isn't. This is the virtue of travel and culture.

    Great hotel

    from

    My friend and I spent 3 nights at this hotel, and had a great time. My cousin lives in Sliema and walked around to various hotels to find one that he thought was good and at a reasonable price. I took his advice on this hotel and booked it via e-mail correspondence directly with the hotel manager. I received prompt accurate replies, and we were also lucky enough to take advantage of a weekend promotion they had which offered a reduced room rate plus 3 free meals (in addition to the free breakfasts), plus free use of the indoor spa area. We were not disappointed when we arrived. We had a superior sea view room on a high floor, private full bathroom, air conditioning, mini fridge, and television. The hotel staff at the front desk and in the restaurants were quite helpful and friendly. The food in the buffet restaurant was pretty good with a lot of choices, and the dinner in the Argyll al a carte restaurant was fantastic -- the best meal I've had in a restaurant in a long time. Overall, we had a very positive experience in this hotel, and the weekend promotion made things even better. Perhaps the only negative issue we had was the fact that the outdoor swimming area across the street was too popular and it was difficult to find a couple of empty beach chairs beside the pool. It's all open and easily accessible, and I think the locals take advantage of the hotel facilities on the weekends.

    Malta is great

    from

    My wife and I stayed at the Preluna Hotel for two weeks in oct 2003 and had a wonderfull time, the staff at this hotel are all very friendly and Malta is the place we will be going back to this year in september,and staying at the same hotel, we can not wait to get back to this splendid island.

    A really good holiday

    from

    My husband and I have just returned from a 2 week half-board holiday in the Preluna Hotel, Malta. We stayed in this same Hotel 9 years ago and the service was just as we remembered but the food was much better. We had a good choice of nicely cooked dishes and always an array of salads. The building works next door did not disturb us once.

    Malta's Preluna is great

    from

    The combination of Malta's various delights and the Preluna Hotel & Towers made for an unforgettable visit last January. They have improved the hotel a lot since I last stayed there a few years ago. New restaurant with wonderful, varied and generaous buffets. Full English-style breakfast included in the rates. I had a fantastic rom with a complete sea view so even when the weather was bad I could watch the waves against the promenade below my window. Lots of old faces amongst the staff. They seem to like it there and they do a brilliant job and give very personal and friendly service. We will definitely return!

    Great Week in Malta

    from

    Have just returned from a week in Malta. My wife and I went went with a air/hotel/meals package for Cdn$1800 arranged by Goway Travel and we stayed in the Preluna Hotel. In Malta we were on our own and walked or used the excellant local bus service. Our Hotel in Sliema has a bus stop out front and was only 5 minutes from Valletta. We walked the streets and the walls of Valletta, visited Museums and the 2nd World War underground Command Centre. On an other day we took the bus and ferry to Gozo and saw the Citadel in Victoria and the ancient temple ruins at Gigantia. We also explored the 3 Cities and the buildings and fortifications built in the 17th Century by the Knights of St. John. On an other day, we bussed to the south side of the island to see the temples at Hagar Qim and to walk the Dingli Cliffs. People are friendly and helpful and speak English. Prices are comparable to what we would pay in Canada. Food, even in fairly expensive restaurants, is not of a high quality; one doesn't go to Malta for gourmet delights. Also, the island is a bit behind North America in smoking regulations; there are none. We would strongly reccommend Malta as a must see destination but I think that one week would be sufficient. In January, the temperature was about 16'C every day and it only rained one day in the late afternoon. I understand it can be very hot in the summer but it is a good place to visit as a winter holiday, provided one doesn't want to go swimming or lay on the beach.

    Good hotel

    from

    i have just returned from a weeks holiday at the preluna hotel in slema although some of the hotel bedrooms are a bit tired looking the hotel staff could not do enough for us, the food was excellent the only slight disavantage at the moment is they have a large crane at the side of the hotel as they are building a block of flats inbetween the two hotel buildings. anybody going to this hotel are advised to ask for a room in the towers as these rooms are far better furnished than the ones in the main building. only one more comment to any holiday makers going to malta for the first time, go now as they are building hotels and apartments all over the island and they are going to spoil the atmosphere that malta is noted for and at the moment all you can see are cranes everywhere. this was my sixth visit so i feel there is still a lot for other holiday makers to experience

    Just adequate

    from

    Stayed at The Preluna in Autumn, 2002. Nice location on sea front.

    Hotel itself quite nice but bedrooms rather plain and sparshly furnished...not what you would expect from a 4 star hotel. However, the restuarant at the back on the hotel is excellent (this can be accessed from the street)

    ... lighter, it wasn't easy at all, but being such an old building there would be no way they could install a lift. Our accommodation is in Sliema which is an area across directly from Malta's capital Valetta, which we can see. As we flew into the island you could see how small it is, it's sort of a blend of Croatia, Italy and Greece!! Hard to say as we have only been ...

    ... our way back to the lobby, we rung the bell and asked the man on duty if we could have a room for a reduced price (pushing our luck). I even used the ‘Hello, my name is Caitlin, I’m from Australia…’ line, but apparently that only works a charm once in a night,

    The taxi home was filled with drunken teenagers, but it didn’t deter us from reminiscing about the amazing spur of the moment night that will go down in history! Well, our in history books ...

    ... opportunity as it comes, and live in the moment.

    And I know I can do it. And I know when I find ‘my place’ and ‘my people’ here that I won’t want to leave. I am adaptable, and I am positive. And my loved ones back home are thinking about me.

    I AM having fun, I AM meeting great people, and I AM enjoying my time. I guess this entire rant has just come down to one thing: travelling alone isn’t easy, but it’s worth ...

    A stop off to check out a supermarket that we spotted on the way, and we discovered shelves full of vegetarian food - bonus! So will be stocking up with a home delivery later this week..

    Visited our new favourite restaurant for dinner, a little place round the corner from our flat that serves yummy pasta :)
