Plenty of pools and restaurants, a great spa, and first-rate views – that’s Hotel Fortina in a nutshell.
Hotel Fortina’s two main pools have widescreen views of Sliema’s waterfront. And from their sun terraces you can see the domes and spires of Malta’s capital, Valletta.
There’s another pool in the spa – the heated saltwater is packed with health-boosting minerals. Talking of the spa, it’s one of the hotel’s biggest drawcards. The arm’s-length menu ticks off sugar body scrubs and Dead Sea wraps, as well as milky Cleopatra baths and thalassotherapy treatments.
There are five restaurants to choose from. A smart buffet place comes with a side of panoramic city views, while a Thai à la carte serves up duck stir fries and spicy green curries.
Rooms are finished off in seaside colours, and every place opens to balconies with sea or garden views. Flatscreen TVs come as standard, too.
Location-wise, Hotel Fortina is steps away from Sliema’s huge shopping centre. Plus, the ferry to Valletta is only a 5-minute walk away.

A short break in Malta
A friend and I needed a short holiday last November and chose Malta, because neither of us had been before. The choice of hotels was generous but we settled on The Fortuna Resort because it offered everything all under one roof. If we wanted to stay put, there was plenty to do. If we wanted to explore the island, well organised trips were available. The service was excellent, the food varied and plentiful, with additional different ethnic restaurants for dining at night. We both agreed that it ticked all the boxes on our list of expectations and would not rule out another stay one day.More
Went to stay on a timeshare swap room only in the hotel. Had a lovely spacious clean and comfortable room on the 9 th floor with a balcony and two sun loungers. The view towards Valletta can only be described as stunning. We were also given complementary breakfasts, a harbour cruise, thalassotherapy sessions and a visit to spa sante. Dined in the on site Indian restaurant one night and the food was exquisite and the service top class. I want to go again.More

Hotel average, could do with an up grade, this hotel has a wonderful position,over looking Valleta, best position in Silema. Very central for arranging trips, and is near the shops and restaurants. Nice to stroll along the waterfront at night.More
Great hotel, great people, but...........
This our 10th year and probably the most mixed. The Spa and the staff especially, Olga, Ruth and Bobbie were outstanding the BEST massages and facials we have ever had, and we have had a lot, WELL DONE the spa.......... Table 1 - Victor and his team excellent, they work so hard and the food was 1st class. The Terrace - Outstanding food and service is the best by a mile, especially Fiona, she is by far the best the member of staff at this present time in the whole of the business, she truly deserves an award. Taste - OH, where do I start, it was chaotic every time and so lacking in atmosphere with out the fabulous the Rita. Rita makes that restaurant what it is and NO one can ever fill her shoes, here's hoping she comes back when all is better for her, big big loss to the setting. Can Thai, great food as always, poor service and very unprofessional manager. Moroboshi - Food fabulous, just not enough of it on your plate, unless its lunch time and you only want a snack and 10 out of 10 for Predrig (pronounced Predrick in English), what a fabulous young man, he had only been there 3 days when he first served us and what a perfect gentleman he is, I hope they look after him or pinch him for one of the other restaurants, his customer service is excellent. Il Guardino - The Chef is excellent, always smiling and the food he prepares in front of you is also excellent. They need to add a spicy chilli chicken or beef to the pizza list, because if you like spicy food there is nothing you will get to satisfy you. Sa re ga ma, pleasantly surprised this year, customer service much better than previous years and you were welcomed and served with a smile. The was also great as usual. La Vallette, very friendly, lots of choice and the staff have been there for years and they are always consistent with there procedures and the food is excellent too. Both pool bars were top class, well done to Ken and his team, brilliant service and well done to everyone on the 5* star pool. I think if they brought new members of staff in earlier to train them up the whole customer service experience would be a lot better and less frustrating than when people don't know what they are doing. Housekeeping - Well done to Connie and her team, as friendly and as efficient as ever. Last but not least the management - Collette and Paul - unsung hero's they can not be anymore helpful than they are, they work much harder than the previous management team and are not frightened of asking you how you are, even if they are going to get there ear chewed off. They go out of there way to attend to your need, WELL DONE and THANKYOU. My one big criticism this year is the changes to the ALL INCLUSIVE deal, and it seriously needs looking into from a customers perspective, even if you have to increase the initial price to cover the costs, because ALL inclusive, NO LONGER means ALL inclusive, too many items have a surcharge on them, take them off, everybody is complaining about them and it is just making you look silly.... ALL INCLUSIVE means ALL inclusive....More

Fabulous Fortina Spa.
This is our sixth visit to the Fortina 5 Star.We spent two weeks at our two bedroom apartment.The service was excellent,house keeping superb.Things are changing for the better.Reception staff are extremely helpful and give time.Meet and greet by the boys on the door and their willingness to help and assist is commendable. All areas were clean and the new furniture around the Garden Pool is most welcome by all visitors.The new lift fantastic,look forward for the second lift to be replaced. Resturants good,special mention for Taste,Table One.The Terrace and Japanese. Bar staff at Limes Bar first rate,please in your update and renewal program look to investing in new carpet in the Limes bar area,looking a little tired. Taxi service excellent.May be large display of fresh flowers in Reception would give a good welcome factor.Nice to see the old Spa Travel offices have gone and replaced with a new area with wall mounted paintings,well done.A friend stayed with us for the first time and fully enjoyed the experience,Indoor swimming pool,changing rooms,gym upgrade excellent,Well done everyone,keep raising the standards.See you next year.More
