                        What's nearby.

                        Shopping is quite popular in Sliema and the town is often considered as the most modern shopping center in Malta. It is worth taking a trip to Valletta. The city’s famous sites include the St John's Co Cathedral, the Cathedral Museum that houses works of Caravaggio, the Palace of the Grand Masters currently used as the President's office and the Maltese parliament. The Malta Experience gives an insight into the country’s culture or history. The Upper Barrakka Gardens overlook the Grand Harbour and worth a picnic on a sunny day.

                          Location is wonderful, in front of Valletta. Swimming pool and solarium ar handfull because the island is poor of beaches.

                          cleanliness is not in their strenght..

                          The hotel view is just great! I loved it. My small balcony was opening to the sea and I had a great view of Valvatta. There are some swimming pools, bars and excellent restaurants in the hotel.

                          I did not like the fact that they did not have internet access in the rooms.

                          The breakfast was plentiful and while it lacked variety was very good. The hotel has a very nice pool area right on the Sliema harbor, and the gym facilities are very good and included in the room rate.

                          For WiFi you have to go to the sister hotel's lobby. It's free there, but a four-star hotel should have better Internet access (it's 2010!).

                          Great view on sea. Good location, near Sliema bus station, easy to reach other cities. Staff are helpful, breakfast is good.

                          Very nice staff. Extraspecial thanks for the people in reseption, they even solved our medical problems in no time. We got a room with a very nice view to Valetta, just like we hoped.

                          Breakfast could be more versatile. Lift´s above dining room could work slightly better.

                          The location was lovely, looking out onto Valletta Harbour was great, we had this view from our room. The pool area was very nice, plenty of sunbeds, being right by the sea was an added bonu, there was always a lovely breeze. The bar was very good, live entertainment most evenings.

                          I would rate this more of a 3 star hotel, than a 4 star. The staff did not seem to have the maltese hospitality that I normally experience whilst staying at other hotels in Malta! The room was very nice, but we had to ask to have the bed changed after a week and to have it vaccumed!! The lifts were very poor! Inside pool was not very clean. Because this hotel have a lot of all inclusive guests, if you were on a b&b basis like myself and my family, they expected you to pay £1.00 to hire a towel for the day, which I thought was totally unacceptable. The night manager was very helpful, helping myself sort out my return travel, as we were caught in the ash cloud experience!! Pleasant stay, but will definately not be returning to The Fortina!!!

                          The location is unbeatable. The Hotel was exceptionally clean and the staff all very friendly and helpful.

                          Breakfast was a little hit and miss but not too much of a problem.

                          The fantastic view, the pools and sunbathing facilities. Fluffy towels.

                          This was not a 4 star hotel, the room was small and the decor was cheap. The bathroom was tiny.

                          The hotel is directly across the harbour from Valleta, which offers spectacular view to all the sea facing rooms. Staff are very friendly.

                          The breakfast buffet is very basic. Juices are watered down. Since we are on holiday we went for breakfast between 9:00 to 10:00. There was hardly any fresh fruit left on all days. One day they even ran out of bread rolls. We were told that breakfast is served until 10:30 but waiters started packing away at 10:00 as there were no more replenishment.

                          Good value for money. Excellent location: right at the sea front next to the ferry to Valetta and sigtseeing busses and boats. Good facilities: swimming pool, seaside bar (though expensive), spa (didn't have time to use so can't say if it's good or not).

                          Room was small and basic. Cleaning could have been better (I kept finding black hair in the bathroom). But I suupose you get what you pay for.

                          Pools, spa treatment and a hotel beach opposite the panorama of Valletta

                          Reception tried to change my order to a lower bid - had booked room with Sea View, Reception tried to put me in a room overlooking the courtyard. She expressed disappointment when I disagreed with the change. Room was not ready - after the occupation of the room came hotel staff recruit room inventory and the linesman to change lamps. At the room was the Mini-bar price list, but the minibar was empty.

                          loved the place, great poolside. Clean rooms with great views! Good value, garden was lovely - lot's of flies though!

                          Noisy building work going on continually though. Not sure why skips have to be changed at 7am not 7pm every single day. Very annoying.
