A good hotel, helpful staff, nice studio apartment. The hotel (not tour operators) holds a welcome meeting one evening per week with snacks and wine. As with any welcome meeting they want to sell trips, spa services, etc. However there was no hard sell and every guest is spoken to and asked if everything is to their satisfaction and whether there is anything the hotel can do to make the holiday better. I have never experienced this at any other hotel. It suggests that they want to provide a good service and they do!

Room Tip: If you have an issue, tell reception, we only had a couple of minor issues but they were sorted out quickly, if you don't tell them you have a problem they can't do anything about it

We arrived the day after one of the worst storms the island has had, so not the warmest start!

Our room was clean and tidy, unfortunately the air-con didn't do a great job of keeping the room warm, but after a call to reception, the maintenance guy checking the system, and then eventually Ekaterina on reception brought us up a portable heater, and all was sorted.

We stayed self-catering, so that we could pick and choose our meals. There's a couple of supermarkets and stores right opposite the hotel for provisions, and a number of really good restaurants nearby.

The a la carte restaurant in the hotel served great food - we ate there a couple of times because the food was that good.

If you just fancy a snack (or a coffee and a pastry in the morning), visit the cafe/bar and order something from Ruby Anne - she's a real diamond.

We do recommend you check out the Spa facilities - the staff are superb and the prices are very reasonable - perfect to help you relax and enjoy your holiday.

We're not usually ones to hang out in the hotel bar, but the evening entertainment was that good, you felt compelled to listen.

We will definitely be coming back here!

absolutely reccomend this hotel if you are staying in mellieha,food was superb with a good choice and all staff were very pleasant,room was fantastic too.
with regard to smoking,we smoke but realise other people do not and fully understand not being able to smoke in public places,we did not smoke in our room and went onto our balcony even in cold wet weather so as not to have it linger in a room that was to be used by others.
not all smokers are anti-social cretins.

We booked a week at the Solana Hotel partly based on Tripadvisor reviews along with some knowledge of its location.

On arrival we were greeted by a lovely receptionist who checked us in and showed us where we could keep our luggage until our room was ready. Due to an early flight we had arrived a bit before check-in time, so this was nice to have the ability to leave our cases and explore.

We headed a few yards up the hill to the Hilltop Restaurant for lunch.

When we came back our room was ready and we retrieved our cases and settled in. All the rooms allow smoking, so being non-smokers we were aware of the smell of smoke in the room, but a quick word with reception and the following morning the room was thoroughly cleansed of all but the faintest traces of cigarette smells.

The housekeeping was good, room always cleaned and tidied and fresh towels provided daily, along with clean sheets.

We had booked half board. Other reviewers had mentioned the food was a bit repetitive, but although I wouldn't quite give it a four star rating, the food was of a good standard, reasonable varied and well presented. Considering how little we had paid to have half board over B&B I would say the food was very good value.

There are numerous restaurants nearby, catering for most budgets and tastes, although die hard fish and chip fans Might struggle.

The hotel has two pools, one indoor,in the basement, one on the roof. From the roof you get fantastic views past the church, down to the bay and onto the islands of comino and Gozo.

When we visited two years ago the bus service was provided by a multitude of old fashioned busses, all owned by the driver and despite their caring degrees of efficiency and repair they were plentiful and cheerful.

Now, however, the busses are run by Arriva. Anyone who has suffered Arriva in the UK will need no introduction to their service, busses or service reliability.

We visited in March and there was some much needed road improvements taking place, so all bar one of the regular services up through the village were diverted, but all stopped off on their way back to the ferry port.

There was also live music on Wednesday night with Ernest, who kept us so well entertained we braved the Friday night storm (their worst in living memory) to see him at the Pergola hotel which is a sister hotel to the Solana. Saturday night was also live music night.

For those who can't go without their Internet fix there is either paid access via a pc, or free wifi in the public area (reception, main bar).

Al in all, a lovely relaxing stay, despite the unexpected bad weather.

Just arrived back from a weeks half board at the Solana.Food was very good.The service on the reception desk was excellent.Rooms are spacious. We had a problem with the heating which the maintenance team were unable to resolve however we were left with a more than adequate portable heater. Would gladly return.
