The Mellieha Bay Hotel is a concrete complex stretching along the coastline next to Mellieha Bay. This location in the north of Malta is some distance from the main centres of interest on the island, but the hotel does have other things going for it, like the island's largest sandy beach just a stone's throw away, and the embarkation point for ferries to the nearby islands of Gozo and Comino. The hotel has a rather outdated appearance, and offers a limited set of facilities, choosing instead to bank on its location and green spaces. Families might be a little bit disappointed with the accommodation options on offer at the hotel, because the rooms can only sleep a maximum of 3 guests. However, for tighter budgets, this is one of the rare hotels on the island to offer an all inclusive package deal.

    Location 4.5 /10

    The hotel is in a seaside location next to Mellieha Bay, on the north coast of the island. It is well designed, in such a way that all the guest rooms have sea views. One nearby town worth a visit is Mellieha, which is built on the mountain opposite, a few miles away. The town centre is particularly attractive, with its main street and lots of shops. If you love the sea, you will be in your element here on Malta's longest beach. However, everything is relative, and the 200 metre stretch of sand is incomparable with the kind of stretches found in nearby Tunisia. For diving enthusiasts, ?irkewwa, one of the main centres for this activity, is very close by. Allow 40 minutes for the taxi ride to the airport and 20 minutes to get to the capital, Valletta.

    Accommodation 5.95 /10

    You'll just have to get used to the rather long corridor leading to all the guest rooms. All 313 rooms overlook the bay, so they are all lined up one next to the other. The standard rooms are really modest. They are small (18m²), the amenities are minimal and the colours of the tacky decor might well bring on a headache. There is no internet connection in the rooms. On the plus side, the French windows allow you to enjoy the sea views, which are even better from the little balcony featured in every room. As for the number of guests to a room, families with more than one child will be disappointed, because the maximum capacity of each room is 3 people (2 adults + 1 child or 3 adults). Even so, you can still expect a bit of a traffic jam in the small bathrooms, but on the plus side, they are all provided with a bathtub.

    Overview 6.70 /10

    The concrete block structure making up the hotel and its facilities stretches its way along the coast so that every single guest room can enjoy a view of the bay. The buildings are not very modern, and although the lobby has received a lick of paint and is now decorated in snappy modern colours, the rest of the facilities have rather an aged look about them. The swimming pool might be small, but what does it matter? The hotel has vast outdoor communal spaces that it really makes the most of, including, for example, the little beach that fills up quickly in the summer but is relieved of some numbers by Mellieha's nearby beach. It is nice to stroll around the hotel's gardens, which boast a sea view from every part. The hotel appeals to all age groups. Guests who enjoy trying their hand at water sports can head for the dedicated centre provided as part of the hotel's facilities, and party animals can shake their stuff after dark every day of the year in the hotel's nightclub, open until 1:00am. The hotel does not have a spa or a gym; all that remains is a rather unkempt tennis court.

    Food and drink 6.70 /10

    This is not really the hotel's strong point. One of the options is the main restaurant, with its big bay windows overlooking the sea, but the decor is really run-of-the-mill. This dining room also gets noisy, considering it can seat 450 guests at the same time for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Several catering options are available, including bed & breakfast, half board, full board and all inclusive. In the summer months, you can enjoy food cooked on the outdoor barbecues. Otherwise, snacks can be ordered at the swimming pool bar. At the highest point of the hotel property is the Jamaica Inn, which also serves barbecued meat and fish dishes.

    Beach

    The beach is a little strip of fine but rather grey sand bordered by rocks. Everything a holidaymaker might need for a comfortable holiday is provided, including deckchairs and parasols. The water is particularly clean on this side of the bay, with reflections of a lovely shade of green. However, be careful swimming further out into the water, because there are rocks and seaweed not far from the shore.

    To know

    The hotel has a large bowling green to help keep you occupied.

        Nous sommes partis aux vacances de printemps une semaine en demi-pension avec Plein Vent. Même si l'hôtel n'est vraiment pas beau architecturalement, les chambres sont spacieuses, et le parc est splendide,nous étions en rez-de-jardin, au milieu des fleurs avec une très belle vue sur la baie. Le buffet du matin est plus que correct. Le personnel de l'hôtel ne parle pas forcément français mais ils sont très serviables et le personnel Plein Vent est toujours prêt à nous rendre service.

      • Advantages

        La piscine chauffée avec vue sur la baie est très sympa (et pas très fréquentée, du coup nous l'avons eu plusieurs heures pour nous tout seul !).

      • Disavantages

        Concernant le dîner, c'est très "anglais" mais il y a quand même du choix (et pas de b?uf bouilli comme nous avions pu lire avant de partir...) et c'est très correct.

        Hôtel avec vue magnifique sur la baie, climatisé, choix varié au restaurant, nous avons passé un super séjour, c'était notre lune de miel et si c'était à refaire on y retournerait sans hésiter! Les piscines sont spacieuses, bien entretenues, à faire aux alentours: la visite du Blue Lagoon sur bateau. Le personnel ne parle qu'anglais mais ce n'est pas très grave, ils sont sympathiques. Chambre propre et petit déjeuner copieux. Animations et soirées barbecue le mercredi soir. Super bien.

      Far from the bustle of the larger cities in the east of the island, the town of Mellieha is nestled on the heights of the Northern part of Malta and offers an enjoyable retreat, without being totally cut off from the coast and its assets. After a long renovation phase, the hotel has just re-opened and now displays a much more modern and contemporary style. It's a pity that the older rooms didn't get the same treatment, but overall the hotel offers good value for money.
