This place is all about the views from the rooms across the bay. Hotel out of the way so need a bus anywhere. Rooms are basic, but most importantly cleaned daily. Food was very good for all inclusive, all the usual selection. Drinks in the all inclusive were very poor - only a choice of two cocktails, not very imaginative and a bit repetitive.Also found the bar tiny with verrry slow service.Been to many A/I deals with these same friends and we agreed very average. Staff were the least friendly of all our trips awayMore
We have just returned from a weeks holiday in this hotel and I would highly recommend it. The rooms and facilities are excellent, clean and very relaxing. Our room was on the ground floor so we had a small patio with a sun lounger as well as table and chairs. This also meant easy access to the path which leads into the main complex, beach and gardens. The staff here are so helpful and courteous and they could not do enough for us, they special fell in love with my 2 year old son whom was the youngest guest at the time. The daily menu was varied and very tasty with a wide choice of dishes available, we were all inclusive so were very satisfied with everything. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a nice relaxing time with both indoor and outdoor pools and a nice relaxing lounge with daily entertainment in the evenings. My family enjoyed it so much we are planning to return next year, I could not recommend it enough.More
Malta -The holiday of a lifetime
The Mellieha Bay Hotel, was built in 1969, in the northern most tip of the island - as the name suggests it is in the bay of the same name ** the perfect picture postcard setting you will see in a very long time. The hotel is laid out in seven blocks overall - one small block and six larger ones, all within its own grounds and amenities for you to use - there is a notice board on one of walls near the reception area, giving you details of what is happening on any particular day.......at reception they will give you a card which has thetime for breafast,lunch and dinner [ dress code for dinner, no shorts or sleeveless tops] The hotel is classed as a cashless hotel, which means any drinks at the bar or dining room is placed on your room number or if you want speak to someone at reception about a card which you put money on to cover any costs incurred - if there is any currency left over at the end, they will then transfer it back to your account. The room is clean and tidy with everything you need but the best part is the view from the balcony of the famous Mellieha Bay itself - early in the morning is the best when you are just waking and will appreciate the beautiful view. Our stay was half board, which includes bed, breakfast lunch or dinner which ever you want to choose from - there is plenty of choice for everyone. Definitely highly recommended for the hotel and the weather..More
Our first time to Malta and we loved it. We got a good deal at Mellieha Bay Hotel and loved the place. All rooms overlook the bay and the immaculate gardens. We opted for half board but if we went again we would go all inclusive as the hotel is quite isolated and on an evening we stayed in the hotel and enjoyed the evening meal and entertainment and purchased drinks from the bar. We usually like to go out on an evening therefore all inclusive is not for us but here it was not the case. We visited lots of places of interest, a bus stops right outside the hotel, and getting about on local buses is easy. The hotel was spotless, bedrooms newly refurbished, the food excellent , and a great animation team on hand offering a full sports and entertainment programme. Mark the travel rep was amazing, making sure all holidaymakers were kept well informed and happy. The views from our room were amazing, and to cap it all the weather was warm and sunny every day.More

Reading some of the reviews on here I had begun to wonder what I might have let myself in for. In reality most of the negative comments on here are either incomprehensible nonsense or gross exaggerations. All the rooms are see facing and the hotel is no more than 4 storeys - there are therefore some long corridors, all of which are all well lit, and with floor to ceiling glass. How they can be described as dark and dingy I don't know. I had a modern bedroom and bathroom, with all the facilities i would expect from a hotel of this standard (and the bonus for an overseas beach hotel of full beverage making facilities), with a balcony leading on to a terrace with superb views across the bay. I was all inclusive and there was always a good selection of food which was well prepared, well presented and tasty. As a single traveler, my only slight negative was that there was no bar table service for drinks. As a previous reviewer has commented, this either meant risking leaving ipads etc out of my view on a table, or possibly losing my table. Staff were all friendly, helpful and professional. The resort is quiet and ideal for a relaxing holiday. At this time of the year it is mostly older people, but there were families staying there while I was there. The idea that the hotel is exclusively for the older generation is ridiculous. Overall I had a thoroughly enjoyable week that went all to soon, and I would not hesitate to return in future.More
