  • 8.0.Very Good

    Almost perfect! Either way, excellent!

    We stayed here for 2 weeks as part of a big family vacation. The Westin brand of hotels doesn't disappoint and this was no exception. Just a fantastic resort. Not all was perfect, but the want the situations was handled by the hotel met our expectations and I left thoroughly satisfied. Pros: Facilities were fantastic. Soccer court, ping pong, darts, several pools to choose from, first class fitness facility, and the best breakfast selection I have ever experienced. I actually can't emphasize that enough, it is so impressive and so convenient allowing you to make the most of your day without having to worry about where you are going to eat breakfast! Cons: We arrived to a room with a really musty smell. Unfortunately the hotel was complete booked but they tried to look at whether we could be moved to a more desirable room. They offered to do a thorough cleansing and that did the trick, if not entirely, to a satisfactory level. We also had adjoining rooms with my sister and her family, however they came in to discover a dead cockroach in their washroom. Normally, this would have resulted in a 1 star review as this should not happen. . That said, they didn't make excuses, and rectified the situations immediately. Cockroaches are common in a hot climate and could have simply been a case of leaving the sliding door open while cleaning. They offered complimentary drinks, and the rest of our stay was absolutely spectacular. Top Notch.

    You just found your Malta hotel

    Simply put, stop searching for places to stay in Malta and book this hotel. The staff, the rooms, the pool, the beach access, the location, the breakfast, the other pool, the swimming coves, the indoor pool, the fitness center - this has it all!

    The hotel is very active in ensuring people stay safe while in their facilities by ensuring temperature checks of all customers before they enter or leave the premises, sanitizers are placed everywhere and breakfast is absolutely fantastic. The ocean is at the back and you can have a swim very easily

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    Excelled in service and safety

    Due to Covid 19 we were extremely wary of travelling anywhere however prior to this trip we were contacted a number of times by the hotel to assure us they had taken very precaution to keep customers safe. We arrived and were impressed from the minute we entered. Hand sanitizers were everywhere. Temperatures were taken on entry each time. Staff were always in masks and everywhere was cleaned to the highest standards. We have stayed here before so knew how good this hotel was but it was even better than expected. Unfortunately for the hotel numbers were down due to Covid but we had a fabulous holiday and would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a 5 star service and a great location

    Top notch experience at the Westin Dragonara! We loved our stay there. The hotel grounds and pools were the highlights for us. You get private swim areas to the sea. We enjoyed the salt water pool at the Reef Club and the spectacular sea views. We extended our stay because we didn't want to leave. Highly recommend.
