Hotel Fortina  

Plenty of pools and restaurants, a great spa and first-rate views – that’s the Hotel Fortina in a nutshell.

The Hotel Fortina is just steps away from Sliema’s huge shopping centre. Plus, the ferry to Valletta is only a five-minute walk away.

This luxury hotel counts off four pools, seven restaurants and bars, and a first-class spa, before finishing things off with rooms that open on to sea or garden views.

Not 5*

This hotel is desperately in need of refurbishment. We stayed in one of the garden rooms which was very dark because of all the trees (most of them blocking the view of the gardens) and our balcony didn't get sun any time of the day. The pool area around the garden pool was very shabby and had broken stones around the small pool area. We arrived at the weekend and couldn't find a place at either of the pools as the hotel issues day passes which are obviously taken up by non-residents and was over-crowded. There didn't appear to be enough staff to keep the bar area clean and tidy. I think that the staff at the pool area have forgotten that they are dealing with holiday makers and were not particularly friendly, rude in some cases. They appeared to be very jaded. The first night we went into the buffet restaurant. There was a choice of soup or various salads for starters, choice of 4 main courses (roast pork, lamb stew, chicken and fish) and then a choice of 5 puddings. Not a buffet really and this was charged at 28 euros each! We did not eat at the hotel again. I think the difference between 4* and 5* is one or a combination of two things - the surroundings are plush and or the service is sophisticated and top notch. We found this hotel to be neither. I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone because of the price and would class it more as a 3*. The management of this hotel would be wise to send in some mystery shoppers to re-evaluate what they are providing for the money.More

Standards seem to have gone down!

This was our 4th year at the Fortina spa resort. The first two were wonderful and we had a fabulous holiday. However last year we did feel that standards were slipping. We had booked a sea-view room but were given a garden view. After a long wait we were given a room to our satisfaction, although there were still some issues. Although there were new sun-beds on the lido, there are no mattresses, so they are extremely uncomfortable for someone with a back condition like myself, so we stopped using it. This year exactly the same thing happened. We were not given a satisfactory room and when we did move we were plagued with ants which were all over the bed. To be fair they did get rid of them or i would have demanded another room, but they never came back. Sadly we found what had previously been a lovely oasis, the pool garden, sadly neglected. The trees were overgrown, some of them dying and the sunbeds were definitely not 5* standard, We were just B&B so did not eat in the hotel except for breakfasts which were delicious. We have loved the Fortina, mainly because of it's position, which is fantastic. However we would now question it's 5*rating and would say it's more 4*. One last thing is that we never find the reception staff to be particularly well informed. Several of them were very young and it sometimes took ages to get something sorted out. Maybe it's time for a change!More


Still a fantastic resort!

Have visited the Fortina Spa over the last ten years. Still a spotless resort with everything you need, great location for town, harbour and sightseeing. All restaurants still fantastic menus and service. Lots of refurbed rooms now and they are working their way through the rest it appears. Food and service was outstanding at table 1, taste and can Thai - despite us being all inclusive as some previous reviewers have commented on. Sa re GA MA food delicious although service not quite as good as the others. Spa options great, including various offers. Nothing is ever a problem with the staff here and we will definitely continue to return. This time we had a wellness room on the 15th floor (not one of the spa ones at the end) and it was lovely with fantastic view. Cleaning and turn down service spot on, everything replenished more than once a day if needed. I still give this 5 starsMore

Lovely Stay at Fortina Spa 5*

When we arrived early afternoon on 28th July, were given a sea view room on the 5th floor, although we had previously requested a high rise floor with a sea view. However, the receptionist suggested we take it and after breakfast the next morning ask to change to a higher floor. Once we saw the room on the 5th floor we loved it, it was spotlessly clean and the view was fantastic, so we decided to stay in the room originally allocated. Fabulous room with king size bed, pristine white sheets, spacious wardrobe and plenty of drawer space, tea making facilities, safe, fridge. Bathroom was beautiful and very clean, fluffy towels changed daily. The pool area was lovely but got shaded from early afternoon. Obviously we had paid for 5 star facilities, what we didnt think was fair was guests from the 4 star Fortina next door were able to use our pool area too and sometimes it was difficult to get a sun lounger as they were using them instead of using their own pool which was over the roadl. We did have problems connecting to wifi from our room and the only place we could get a connection was reception! We were on B&B stay and breakfasts were fantastic with full english or continental eaten on the terrace every morning.More
