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.

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


The very definition of 'R & R!!' What a resort!

just come back from a wonderful stay at the Fortina Spa Resort and i have to say it surpassed all expectations. we stayed in the tower section in one of the end rooms with its own hot tub, duel aspect balcony and a bathroom about the size of my entire london flat! All the mod cons, including a stunning shower overlooking Valetta...a brilliant site to gaze out to when wake up in the morning! We ate in both Taste and the chinese restaurant, both of which were fantastic. Taste has everything from wonderfully fresh fish dishes, fresh exotic salads a great meat selection (lamb and pomegranate my personal favourite!) The Chinese restaurant has all the classics including whole peking duck and pancakes which was beautifully cooked. We spent most of the mornings bathing around the hotel pool which is lovely and tranquil before heading across the road to the lido for afternoon drinks with a great view and a nice busy atmosphere. I only had one massage but having walked around the spa facilities it looks very impressive! All in all, a great weekend break for us and we'll definitely be back to stay at Fortina again. the staff are extremely friendly and helpful, the location is perfect to be able to explore Valetta and wider Malta and for the price i don't believe you are going to be better value for money anywhere else in Europe!More



We were all inclusive and had a lovely modern room in the Tower. Rooms were huge and fully equipped with a hot tub on our balcony. Staff were friendly and helpful and the main restaurant Taste was lovely food which changed specials daily. We also ate in the Chinese and Indian on different nights which were all included in our holiday package. For something special the Terrace does the best fresh fish I've ever had! We had a lovely day trip over to Silema on the water ferry. I would highly recomended the Fortina spa resort and will definitely be going back! More


Our third and last visit

This was our third visit to the Fortina Spa but this is my first review of the hotel. As we had stayed there before we arrived with high expectations but unfortunately these were not met. Our room was excellent - large, extremely well-equipped and comfortable. Our disappointment had three sources. When we first stayed the developments at Tigne Point had hardly started so what was a relatively quite dead end has now become a very busy area. Second the public rooms are in need of some refreshment. What used to look very smart and luxurious is now looking ordinary. Finally,and most importantly, the dining experience has lost its attraction. We found that booking restaurants became a source of irritation which we did not experience on our previous two visits. You could only book up to two days in advance, the choice some days was very restricted especially as the previously excellent Teppanyaki was now closed and Il Giardino serves rather inferior Italian food. Also a very restricted choice of dining times seemed to be on offer - either 6 .30 or 9.30. What had on previous visits been a source of pleasure was now disappointing.More
