Amy Adejokun Section editor

The Riviera Resort, recommended for a relaxing stay, has two major assets : its well-equipped spa and its location, facing Comino Island, on a section of the Maltese coast that is still not very developed.

    Location 5.0 /10

    By the seaside, 2 miles away from Funchal and 12.4 miles away from Valetta and the airport. Allow a 30-minute ride for tranfers.

    Accommodation 7.70 /10

    Half of the 200 rooms are oriented towards the bay, while the other half overlook the countryside, behind. With an area of 20 m², they have a balcony that is furnished with plastic armchairs and a low table. The contemporary style furniture is in light wood. The floor tiling and the white walls add to the feeling of space. Use of the safe is not free. There are bathtubs, hairdryers and liquid soap dispensers in the bathrooms. Other amenities offered in the room : air conditioning, direct telephone line and mini-bar.

    Overview 7.45 /10

    Built in 2001, the Riviera Resort occupies a 4-storey building whose modern architecture forms a semi-circle in front of the Mellieha Bay. Comino Island is a few miles off away. The lobby has a huge bay window that has a view of the highway and the sea beyond. The décoration, which is both sober and fancy, includes numerous original paintings by Maltese artists. In the middle of the solarium area, which overhangs the bay, there are two swimming pools connected by a small bridge. Each of them measures about 15 X 5 meters. A small pool for children is nearby. It's too bad however that there is no garden. In fact, the vegetation is limited to a few shrubs, which are planted close to the façades and the wooden gateway. As for leisure facilities, everything is provided, including towels.

    Food and drink 6.70 /10

    The main restaurant faces the sea and is lit up by the sunlight that comes through its big bay windows. Unfortunately, it doesn't have a terrace, the one along the street is for the use of the Charley Noble Bar's customers only. The dining room, which is equipped with tables that are sufficiently spaced, is pleasant. The buffet-style meals offer both local and international recipes, as well as theme parties, 3 times a week ( Maltese, Spanish and Italian specialities ). In the morning, you can have hot ( scrambled eggs, sausages, red kidney beans in tomato sauce ) or cold dishes ( cold meats, cheese, cereals, bread ).

    Beach

    The beach is about 50 m away from the hotel. You get to it by taking the highway that runs along the seashore. It is 100 meters long and 20 meters wide. There is some seaweed in the water and the sand is not that beautiful. A large, 50-meter long bridge has been installed to make up for this inconvenience. This allows you to swim in the deepest part of the bay. For those who want to go to Comino ( from April to October ), there are some boats leaving ( for an extra charge ). It's a daily service. In Comino, you will discover a superb, white sand beach ( there are deckchairs and sunshades available for rent ) that faces a natural turquoise blue basin : The Blue Lagoon

    To know

    The Riviera Resort is a good place, during any season, for a relaxation stay thanks to its spa which offers a series of treatments, or a la carte sessions for hydrotherapy, aromatherapy, body wraps and massages. The centre uses Thalgo, Dead Sea and Findero products. It also boasts of a seawater swimming pool, which is heated in winter and is freely accessible to all guests. With a surface area that measures 15 X 5 meters, it allows you to swim in it, no matter what the temperature is outside.

      • Package deals in octobre 2013 Posted on 2013-11-01 Seul - Une semaine et plus (Chambre avec vue)

        a la suite d une semaine all inclusive à cet hôtel mon ressentit est mitigé. le spa est sublime, l hôtel porte bien son nom! les piscines sont spatieuses et bien entrenus. mais l hôtel est trop loin ce n est pas du tout pratique pour visiter car l île est magnifique. l anglais est obligatoire aucun effort du personnel. c est un 4 etoiles mais il n en mérite que 3 a cause de la nourriture,des chambres et de la géolocalisation.

      • Advantages

        il y a des piscines exterieurs et interieurs grandes et bien entretenus. le spa est agreable et de tres bonne qualite. la proprete et l hygiene sont excellent.

      • Disavantages

        hôtel veillissant. pas d animation en soirée. anglais exigé pas d effort au niveau du personnel pour parler une autre langue. les chambres sont mal insonorisés. les repas ne sont pas assez varies pour un 4 etoiles

      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.

      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.
