At the Hotel Plaza Regency you get two hotels for the price of one – it’s joined to the next-door Plaza Hotel, giving you access to both places.
A prom-side setting has the Hotel Plaza Regency serving up sea views left, right and centre. A rocky beach and a family-friendly park also pull up opposite the hotel.
The Hotel Plaza Regency is joined at the hip to the hotel next door, so as well as a smart rooftop pool and sea-view restaurants and bars, a big range of rooms are in the offing.

Fantastic service. To top it off, we were delighted with the beautiful sea view which was opposite!
My partner and I arrived on the 5th June, around 4/5 in the evening. Upon interesting the hotel, we encountered many of the Maltese locals celebrating the presidency. It was not annoying in the slightest and really made me appreciate how they celebrate the Maltese culture which is something I don't get to witness much. We stayed inside the Plaza hotel, not the Regency. When we first entered the hotel, we were greeted by a lovely receptionist who made us feel very welcome, accommodating to our needs immediately. She gave us quite a bit of information in regards to the facilities and services that the hotel has to offer and then gave us our keycard in order to settle into our newly awaited room. Upon reaching our room, we didn't realise that it would be as small as it was... however, for the price we were paying I should have researched thoroughly. I will not complain though as it was quite spacious and did not make us feel claustrophobic. We were given a small room with a double bed, joined with the bathroom which was fine for a weeks stay. However, might not be suitable for other types of holiday-goers. We were fine with it as a young couple. Upon unpacking, we left the hotel to enjoy a part of our evening at the sea-front which is probably a minutes walk from the hotel which is extremely convenient. I think that the sea-front is an absolute bonus for the price of the stay at the hotel. In addition, there is also the close proximity of shops and bus stops, again very convenient and quick. We experienced the Karachi nights from Tuesday-Sunday which were fantastic and very interactive. Some of the singers were a little dull but two in particular were absolutely brilliant and really engaged with the audience. They honestly made our stay better than we could have imagined. In addition to our hotel stay, we also had breakfast included which included a variety of many items catering to many different types of people. One thing I must add, however, is that it was lacking in vegetarian/vegan foods which is something that should be perhaps thought about. Other than that, however, I loved the buffet style breakfast. We did not have many dinners at the hotel as we would normally eat out, however, we did eat at the restaurant around two-three times during our weeks stay. Again, there was not much vegetarian/vegan options which should again be considered. It would honestly make the hotel more accommodating for people with these particular dietary needs. As mentioned though, the close proximity of local restaurants meant that we were able to travel for a couple of minutes each time we wanted to have dinner so having dinner at the restaurant was not a problem. Downstairs, there was Cara's cafe which offered vegetarian options and accommodated me well. It was cheap and the service was brilliant. Joined up to that was RivaReno which was also convenient for having a sweet treat, however, as its connected to Cara's cafe you were able to order these particular desserts from Cara's which was great as we didn't need to get up from the chairs just to order something there. Cara's cafe also did take-out food so that you were able to take your food to eat whilst travelling or to eat within the hotel. This was another convenient service. In addition, we were also able to use the wifi each time we were within the hotel lobby which was great as we were still able to connect with family and friends as well as share moments from our holiday. We normally went downstairs within the evening as it could get busy within the morning/afternoon. The hotel does offer an indoor pool but this is only accessible during certain periods of time during the year, specifically NOT in Summer. I do wish that this could perhaps be changed so that people who don't want to get sunburned or for any other particular reason could still experience their holiday but within inside. Upstairs at the pool could get quite busy. Due to the connection to both the Plaza and Regency, this led to the poolside getting full up quite quickly so we sometimes had to sit down where the rooftop bar was. The pool was great. Nothing wrong about it. The rooftop bar was brilliant, the staff members were fantastic. Very friendly and very hardworking. The only thing that might have been a little annoying about our stay was the annoying teenagers that we encountered that were extremely loud and acted stupidly. The hotel staff, however, did deal with it accordingly which was very helpful and reassuring. Overall, our stay at the hotel was fantastic. It was better than we imagined it to be. We met some lovely couples within the hotel and had a lovely time socialising with not only the locals but holiday-goers, especially at the rooftop bar where the karaoke was held. My partner had his birthday the day before we departed the hotel. When we went to the hotel's restaurant, the staff all got together to bring him out a beautiful cake (which they went out of their way to go out and get due to not having any cakes within the kitchen - fantastic) and sang happy birthday to him (with the additional holiday-goers also joining in) which really made us appreciate the staff members hard work and willingness to accommodate their guests and make them not only feel happy but also reassured to go home with great memories. We also had one of the entertainers at the rooftop bar sing happy birthday to him which was brilliant, though a little hilarious. (If by any chance it helps, we enjoyed Tuesday's, Wednesday's and Sunday's entertainers.... if it's still the same, these two men were the most enjoyable and really brought life to the entertainment) In addition to all of this, we also had cleaners come in to clean each day where it would always end up being cleaner and tidier by the time we came back from our day's fun. We will be coming back to the PLAZA hotel again next year. We absolutely enjoyed every second staying at this hotel. It will not be everyone's cup of tea but for the price and entertainment that there is to offer, you really can't go wrong. If you want great entertainment, friendly staff an a chance to meet new people then this hotel is for you. The age range is so varied so anyone can come here really, however, big families might not enjoy so much due to the smallness of the rooftop bar upstairs. (Carmen the waitress at the restaurant was fantastic. Absolute credit to the hotel. Went out of her way to accommodate us and was extremely friendly)More
Great location, friendly staff, clean rooms - no window
My Best Friend and I arrived at the Hotel early evening, the staff were quick and efficient with the check-in, we found our room easily, it was a twin, with a bathroom and walk-in wardrobe. It was clean a had air-conditioning which worked very well and relatively quietly, we were there July so daytime temp was 34 degrees, evening was 26 degrees, so it was essential. The only shock for us was the fact that the room had no window, we thought there was a window as there is a curtain, but when we pulled the curtain back there was a false blacked out concrete block! We were very disappointed at this as we literally had no idea of the weather and felt like moles in a hole. We immediately requested a different room, but were informed the hotel was full so we were stuck in our hole. we had to keep the lights on all the time as the room was pitch black when the lights were out!! AVOID room 409 Apart from that, we were on B&B basis, the buffet breakfast offers you every hot choice, bacon, eggs, toms, mushrooms etc, cereals, toast, pastries, fruit, yogurt and porridge. All freshly cooked and all tables cleared really quickly. The wifi is only available in reception, invariably it gets packed when the hotel is full, this is always such a gripe with me, WHY not provide wifi in the bar...We would all sit there AND order drinks whilst sending a selfie home..!? Even evening the hotel offer entertainment on the roof top bar, its cabaret style singers and is very cheesy, but at the same time, its absolutely fine. the bar is well stocked and drinks are reasonably priced, the bar food they offer throughout the day is also reasonably priced. there is a small pool, but its adequate, at no time was is overcrowded, we also had choice of sun loungers every day on the sun terrace. The location is perfect for St Julians Bay, Valletta and all the bus routes. Public transport is efficient clean and really cheap. All in all the hotel is a clean well positioned 3 star hotel. Just ask for a room with a window.More
please don't book this place its dreadfull
The Room was bad, very little light ( we looked onto a wall) and air, the attitude of the management staff in general was arrogant and unhelpful to down rite rude, the first week the hotel could not make its mined up if it was a hotel or hostel it was over run with students, who's language was disgusting , the hotel made it perfectly clear they were its priority, to evan making guest wait to fined a dining table whilst it was re set up , however the students had tables to spare the pool was out of bounds due to the studants taking over, our grandson had food poisining and was in hospital for 5 days , we did not eat there again, the mangers only comment was " you cant prove it was us" no mention of how is he, a dreadfull place , a dreadful holiday, you have been warned.More
lack of sleep
stayed here from 19th July for 4 nights as an anniversary surprise. The big complaint about this place is being woken up at 2.00am onwards by noisy students intent on coming back from wherever they have been and slamming doors and moving furniture around, not happy. Having said that the room we had was big and spacious, air-con was very good, we had a balcony and brilliant sea view. The rooftop pool was good and it had a bar as well. The hotel is in an excellent location as the sea is opposite and there are bars, shops and restaurants to the left and right. St Julian's is just up the road out the hotel and do a left and is beautiful. I have family here so it was nice to see them again and will visit Malta again soon because it is a beautiful country but not sure if I will stay at this hotel. Food and drink wherever you go is always very good and so was the weather. Wadsworth, Yateley, EnglandMore
