Historical Traveler Reviews Seabank All Inclusive Resort & Spa Mellieha
I have been to Malt 4 times now and always wanted to stay at the Seabank.
Since Riu took over in 2005 there as been a lot alterations to this hotel mainly the atrium etc.
This hotel as a lot going for it with lots off facilties Gym health and fitness sauna indoor pool bowling alley kids theme restaurant plus more.
The hotel seabank is across the road from the beach with a good view across Mellieha Bay.
The food in the restaurant was good withj a good choice off dishes, something to suit everyone.
The bedrooms are furnished to a good standard plenty of wardrobe space, tv heating/ac safe hairdryer fridge.
This a well run hotel with very friendly staff.
We took this holiday in April 2003. We arrived at hotel at 2.00am after a very bumpy bus ride from the airport - haring down a huge hill at 70 miles per hour was not the way I had expected to arrive. On getting off the coach we were confronted with a concrete hotel which had a nice reception area but that was about it.
I got back from this hotel yesterday. Overall the hotel is very good in every way but a few things let it down. When we arrived we were given a room on the fifth floor which had a lovely view over the pool. Unfortunately the fifth floor is so hot that even with the air conditioning and the fan it was impossible to breathe.Maintenance said that air con is on a timer so it blows constantly but only cools the room for short periods during the day. The bathroom was so hot you would not go in there.We moved on our second day down to the second floor facing the sea and the temperature was much better as the roof of the room was not the roof of the hotel.
We stayed in the Seabank hotel for two weeks in June this year. Our initial impression was good as we arrived. Very clean exterior and the lobby was very clean and spacious. I had been quite worried about what we would find having read a few recent reviews that were terrible but we were very pleased with the hotel.
We arrived, very thristy, at midnight after a scary bus ride to the hotel. We were told we would have to wait until breakfast for anything to drink and we should not drink the tap water.
Seabank for teenagers
We recently took a family holiday to the Seabank Hotel in Mellieha, Malta (May 2004).
With boys aged 12 & 14 I had wondered if I should have booked a theme park type of holiday, rather than a quiet country such as this.
We were delighted to find, though, that The Seabank hotel had tenpin bowling, internet cafe, a gym, jacuzzi, sauna, cheap bingo, two swimming pools, good restaurants, amusement arcade and English style bar with large screen satellite TV.
There were also other improvements under progress as we left.
At times I found it difficult to get the kids to leave the complex. They are also very fussy eaters, yet enjoyed the food - especially the pizza restaurant which was one of three we could choose from in our half board package.
, THE SEABANK HOTEL AT MELLIEHA BAY was everything we had hoped for , we couldn't fault it it any way. It was spotlessly clean, towels changed EVERY day. The food was excellent , we were on Bed @Breakfast and the choice was vast ! The staff were always helpful and pleasant, nothing was too much trouble for them. The rooms were spacious, tastefully decorated, and included a table and chairs . The Sea Views were magnificent, as was the Sandy Beach, just across the road. It was a joy to wake up to it in the mornings ! In the Evenings there was different Entertainment each night, usually top class Singers or Dancers, and all the Amenties were as shown in the Brochure. There was a handy shop and Hairdresser Salon too. The Village itself was up a steep hill but that isn't a problem as the Buses are so frequent and very cheap. Our Favourite Restaurant was called "The Half Way Inn", and YES it is half way up the Hill, but you can walk there. It served very good food and the Owner was Super. I asked for Peppered Steak VERY HOT, and my goodness it WAS ! Lovely. I must say that the Maltese people really do like the English. The Trips were very good, but mostly we went by the Buses.. The BEST shops are in Silema, and we Girls had a Ball doing a bit of spending there. We also like St Juliens Bay, a very stylish resort, and it is were the Man United and other Footballers sometimes stay. Also the Market at Valetta was good, and we also enjoyed the War Museum, My favourite place was Mosta Dome --where a bomb pierced the Dome while a Service was taking place, but it landed on the floor without exploding , and none of the 300 congregation were injured. The bomb is exhibited inside the Church. The Dome itself is magnificent. There were five of us on Holiday, and we hadn't got ONE single complaint. We went with First Choice, and our Rep, Andy,was so helpful he was just great !! We will definitely return to the SEABANK HOTEL. We were there in June 2004. Thoroughly recommended.
Great Hotel, Great Service
Very helpful staff. When we arrive we had a problem with the reservation - a nightmare with young kids. The staff were great, even getting the local agency's owner out of bed and into a car to sort it all out in person.
The Restaurant is good but limited in its variety but an attached local Restaurant is better (especially for Kids).
50 yards from the beach, which, like most of Malta, is a little rocky.
Pools (inside and outside) are great and well maintained.
Great location for a visit to Malta, especially if you rent a hire car.
Malta is warm, very friendly, safe, English speaking and packed with history and entertainment for all ages.
