Hotel Fortina’s 2 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 5 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 plaza. Plus, the ferry to Valletta is only a 5-minute walk away.

Fortina Spa Hotel
We arrived a day and half late due to strikes in Frankfurt airport. We were greeted by receptionist and very quickly booked in. For 5* hotel I did not expect to struggle to lifts with all my luggage!! Our room was lovely and balcony had the most glorious view. During our weeks holiday our room was kept clean by the hardworking housekeeping staff - no complaints - the girls were all friendly and polite. I have never, in all my travels, enjoyed a breakfast sooo much as I did every morning without fail at La Vallette restaurant. Their friend bread is to die for. Although we could eat at other places we ate in La Vallette every night because you could count on a wonderful meal. The girls at reception were helpful everytime I had a query and even printed out our boarding cards for our flights home. I cant wait to go back some time.More

Potentially a brilliant hotel but not five star
Fortina Spa Resort seems to be everything that a five star hotel should be, however after a short stay there I no longer think it should be five star. On our arrival the receptionist put us into a wrong room with a garden view even though we've changed our room to sea view. She did eventually believe us and put us into a sea view room (sea was view able but only just). Few things weren't working or were broken in the room (hair dryer, bathroom door did not close and not all plugs worked). These weren't major issues but should have been sorted before getting customers into the room. Another disappointment was when we had to leave for an excursion early in the morning and asked for slightly earlier breakfast and got a firm no from another receptionist lady. On the other hand once we did manage to get breakfast, they were brilliant!!!!! It's also advisable to book well ahead if you want to try any of the hotel's restaurants. Good hotel but they really must iron out all the little things that spoil the stay.More

We stayed at the Fortina Spa Resort following a couple of issues at the next door Fortina Hotel. We arrive quite late on a Thursday night without knowing how long we could stay there. We did however speak to the reception on our second day who kindly sorted out our room the we would stay in for the next 4 nights. We stayed in a Spa room which was as expected a very plush slice of luxury. The room included a very large double bed, a Jacuzzi, Steam shower, Massage bath and a dermalife machine. There were also a number of treatments you could use including seaweed gels and mud packs. We had a lot of wardrobe space and an in room safe. As we were due to stay in the Fortina Hotel we used the Vallette restaurant for our breakfast for our first 4 days. However, we were lucky to use the Taste Restaurant for our last morning. The service here was exceptional and the choice of food and drink was excellent, which included champagne with your breakfast if you so wished. We were very lucky to be allocated the room we did and we must thank the reception staff at bothe the hotel and the Spa resort for making our stay as nice as it was despite the initial problems. The only issue we had was we were asked to pay an outstanding mini bar bill, which we did not use as they are usually too expensive. As there was no list of items or prices we had no intentions of using this one, so be careful not to be charged.More

Can honestly say that this is one of the best Hotels I've every visited. Spent 2 nights in an amazing Spa Room which offered us access to our own private jacuzzi behind our large bed, a bathroom with spa facilities including a sauna, dermalife and a beautiful bath. Service was absolutely excellent and they made sure that everything was perfect for us. Keep up the good work! :)More

We booked a weeks holiday at the 4* and found on our arrival that we had been upgraded to the five star next door. As we only had 1 week I cannot comment on a lot of the facilities. Our room was on the 5th floor overlooking the garden, lovely in the hot summer but in the winter no sun on our large balcony. No complaints except we had an over bath shower which was difficult for my 6'4" husband to use. If we had had a longer stay I would have tried to get a better shower. The hotel is lovely once you have found out how to negotiate the lifts to use the restaurants next door. We LOVED the Table 1, and the Buffet restaurant. Food was of an excellent quality, staff are lovely. Both hotels were kept very clean inside and out. Location superb as quoted in previous postings. We found a few evenings with some entertainment, loved that some locals came in to have a dance in the 4* cocktail bar. Not sure if this is only in the low season but they are really nice people. Although we are retired ourselves, the hotel did have a lot of elderly people staying, again this could be because of the season? Very quiet at night. Breakfast was the same every day, a big choice of full English (the fried bread was to die for) continental and the usual cereals, breads etc. All well cooked and presented. If you want a quiet hotel in a good location I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel. We were so lucky paying for the 4* de-luxe room and then going into the 5*, although not seeing any rooms in the 4* it is difficult for me to compare. We booked with Mercury Direct on the dine around package and have been very satisfied with everything from the transfers from the airport to the outings we booked. One point: the cocktails and drinks are cheaper in the 4*More
