Just reopened after extensive reno's - one of the restaurants is still being finished as is the beach bar. Just outside the city gate - five minute walk. Rooms are comfortable, good sized bathroom (shower takes some getting used to... controls aren't obvious). Staff very friendly and attentive.

This is best hotel in Malta just outside Valletta city and has 7.5 acres of garden. The hotel is just reopened. Mr Neville who was duty manager took us around and checked us in our room. Such gesture is rare. Very good service. We had room on 4th floor with 2 balconies. Breakfast spread was amazing.

The Boss and I were here 7 years ago. It has been a long time wish of mine to come here. Ever since I was a little snot and had read about the Great Siege of Malta by the Ottomans. This then followed the Gallant British in WWII and their mighty efforts to relieve the Nazi Siege. But enough of...

We booked the Phoenicia in late 2016 for a short stay in February 2017 but were unable to stay because scheduled building works overran. Whilst this was rather disappointing (we had stayed at the Phoenicia before and knew how good it was), the hotel staff were very helpful in finding alternative accommodation and most generous. We should like to single...

Wonderful holiday superb hotel. Well equipped comfortable rooms. The choice & quality of food at breakfast was excellent as was the service from all members of staff. Hotel location is ideal for visiting the places of interest in Valletta (5 minutes walk), there is also easy access to local transport. Mr & Mrs Douglas May 2017

I stayed for four days at the Phoenicia, which had re-opened three short weeks before -- finishing touches on the new spa are not complete. The hotel is fondly remembered by members of Malta's upper crust, as a place where they played as children on Sunday afternoon, after lunch in the dining room with their extended families. The gardens are...

This hotel is still in the process of being seriously over-hauled and upgraded and is close to completion BUT it's definitely not there yet. The spa is due for completion by the end of the year? The kitchen and bar area by the pool is due for completion at around the same time I believe. There are many minor details...

Rooms in the recently refurbished hotel are comfortable, clean, well furnished and give a great sense of occasion - you feel pampered and not shut in or cramped. The beds are fabulously comfortable and huge and there is a choice of pillow type available. Service in the beautifully decorated lounge and bar is excellent with just a few hiccups as...

We have just returned from a week's holiday at the Phoenicia which has undergone a multi million euro refurbishment. It was an atmospheric palatial hotel which has been brought up to date in the highest modern standard without losing any of its unique character. Bedrooms and bathrooms although simple are finished to a very high standard and the towels and...

Last Saturday (20th May) we held a Q&A session at the Phoenicia, involving The Prime Minister, Leader of the Opposition, Members of Parliament and other distinguished guests. Roberto and his team were very understanding and accommodating, they offered us all the support we needed and even offered us their ideas and input to improve the event. The facilities and the...
