Great place great food well recommended
The hotel was excellent, there was a wide range of food to cater for all tastes. staff were very helpful and accommodating all staff spoke English well and the room was very clean The only reason why I marked down was we had a cracked tile on the bathroom floor and the shower screen leaked We will be going back I think anyone going there would be happy More
What a wonderful time!
We returned from MBH on Friday 12/05. We spent 10 wonderful days and whilst there got married at the hotel, we made the decision a year ago to get married and just decided we wanted somewhere nice and relaxing. It was honestly the very best decision we have ever made! We had a total of 15 people staying at the hotel and every one said it was fantastic. We arrived late on 02/05 and were greated by the Hotel team with fresh glasses of Orange Juice. Our bags were taken to our rooms and all we had to do was book in. I visited the bar once checked in and was handed an ice cold pint of local CISK beer. The bar staff were amazing, even at nearly 0100am! The room was clean, tidy, fresh and fairly large. We had a ground floor room in E block, (Would highly recommend!). The room is near the Jamaica Bar and the pools situated there and is far enough away from any noise generated by the entertainment. The views were amazing and can honestly say they were quite something every morning. All rooms are seaview. Whilst most of the hotel has been updated, and some people have complained it needs modernisation, i found it on the whole to be in very good condition. The childrens area was a bit tired and some tiles could be replaced but other than that, i would not complain about the general appearance. The wedding ceremony was in a small sheltered area with fantastic views and we could not have wished for anything nicer. The staff that set the area up and were there present were fantastic. The Animation team - Natasha, Billy, Clay, Jimena? were fantastic. We had 5 children in our group altogether and althought the team mainly caters for the older people, they went out of their way at all times to include the kids and always stopped to play with them. MBH - They are a credit to your hotel. The work they do every day to keep everybody entertained is amazing. Also, the bar staff were friendly and helpful - Carmel, Dan, Marko, Charles in particular were very engaging and friendly The restaurant served excellent food and there were always a huge variety on offer to feast on. The staff in the restaurant were excellent too and even managed to set up a 15 seat table for our group outside for us on a few occassions so our group could all sit together. We never found it too overcrowded or any issues. The only criticism if i had to find one, would be it needed a little more entertainment for the kids, but then again, this isn't really a kids hotel and most of the guests are around 50 upwards. We will definitely be returning someday and hopefully, the charm and magic that the hotel left imprinted on us will still be there. Thank you to all staff at MBH for making our Holiday/Wedding so amazing.More

Would go back ð
Had a lovely time at the mellieha all the staff were very friendly and helpful and it's a great location if you like it a little more remote. The only things I didn't like were that the beds are to firm for me and although you had two pillows they were quite flat also under the bed looked like it had not been cleaned for quite a while. Food options were great for me although my partner was a little more picky,but we both ate well. We started off half board but due to location we upgraded to all inclusive...there are a few restaurants in mellieha town and if you are prepared to travel a bit st pauls bay is not to far. The buses in malta are great only â¬1.50 each to any location on the island and if you return within 2hrs it's free. There are plenty of excursions and places to visit..Valletta is a must and mdina,a great way to see most sights is by a jeep safari which we did. Jon the driver was a good laugh and very knowledgeable I didn't realise so many films like popeye and troy were made on malta also some of my favourite tv series game of thrones. So overall lots to see,visit and do or you can just chill round the pool in the glorious sun shine as it hit nearly 30 degrees most days. Malta is a beautiful place to visit and mellieha bay is very picturesque so if your stuck for your next holiday give the mellieha bay hotel a look.More
A really great hotel
We visited here in May 2017 for 10 days. Having read the reviews we were open minded but very pleasantly surprised. The hotel looks bright and clean, clearly recently updated, rooms were lovely with a view to die for and the food was satisfactory with many choices. The animation team were fabulous and really made the effort with such a pleasant manner. The staff, from the cleaning staff, bar staff, waiters and reception team were all very friendly and helpful Local transport links were great with a bus stop right outside the hotel and close to the Gozo ferry. We went for the all-inclusive option which we were pleased we had as drinks at the bar weren't cheap. To find anything negative I'd say that when the hotel was full, the small bar area and lounge were overcrowded and there was often nowhere to sit as it wasn't warm enough to sit outside, perhaps another bar would be an idea if the hotel expands. We would recommend the hotel to family and friends.More
could do with a revamp
A very tired 60s built hotel! Just returned from a week AI at this hotel. The gardens in places were very untidy, and full of weeds, some areas were better kept, saw only one gardener all week.All the staff through maids, waiting staff and reception were brilliant, very hard working. Entertainment was dreadful, only one night in a week was a live professional act, the rest of the time the animation team were on, they worked very hard, but just not good enough.The main seating area to watch the shows is not big enough for the size of this hotel. Food was quite good with lots of choice, but restaurant sometimes very busy and had to wait for a table. Swimming pools were very clean but absolutely freezing cold. Some of the sunbeds should have been replaced years ago! The hotel's private beach could have been the loveliest place, but instead was a dumping ground for old sunbeds, parasols, old broken pallets and anything else the hotel wanted to dispose of. Rooms were ok, perhaps short on drawer space with shower over bath in the bathroom. Tea and coffee making tray which was regularly topped up. The balcony had views to die for (all rooms). Maids were excellent. Bars were very good, good choice and great staff. Trips, go to Gozo, but go via the ferry, if you take the 3 Island Cruise ( Oh Yeah Tours) you will be dumped on Comino for 2 hours and there is nothing there except ripoff traders. Gozo is beautiful, you need a full day to visit.All in all, just about an ok hotel, but I don't think I will return! More
