The Lowdown

Situated on the seafront at Sliema, the five-star adults-only Fortina Spa Resort overlooks Valletta, the historic capital city of Malta. Shops, bars, restaurants and the harbour are all just a short walk away, should you manage to peel yourself away from the hotel’s four spas, stunning freeform outdoor pool with swim-up bar and restaurants set within lush tropical gardens.
When it comes to dining, choose your spot in the tropical gardens depending on whether you fancy French, Italian, Indian, Chinese or Japanese. Limes bar is the ideal place to enjoy a sunset aperitif while you decide.
With a choice of three indoor pools, two outdoor pools, indoor and outdoor whirlpools, a gym and a sauna to spend your time in, it’s hard to think of anything you could add to your wish list for a five-star resort hotel.

GREAT HOTEL AND SPA **Actually in September 2017**

We visited Malta for a friends wedding and couldn't be happier with where we chose to stay! Super clean rooms, friendly staff and everything you would ever need within walking distance. There's even a mall right beside it. The hotel offers great views whether your facing the city or the water. If you ever get a chance to go I suggest staying here!!

The Hotel no longer exists

I had stayed here a few years ago so went back to have a look at it while on holiday elsewhere in Malta. The original hotel was in two parts: a 4 star hotel block and a 5 star tower. The hotel block and gardens are now just a large hole in the ground with plans to build underground parking, retail shops and residential apartments. The tower block is still there but the fortina name has been replaced by Seafront Tower.

No complaints

We had a decent room on the top floor, with lovely views over to Valletta. The pool area was nice and it was generally quiet and relaxing.
Good variety of food in the restaurants. My wife and I had several treatments, all of which were good and delivered professionally.
The "beach" area in front of the hotel is small and rocky, so we didn't go down to it. We hired a car and visited a lot more of the island, which is definitely worth doing.
I have stayed in better, but also in worse. Overrall, no major complaints.

Family visit
Reviewed 9 months ago

We stayed at the Fortina on a weeks visit to my elderly 'ex-pat' parents. We were given the rooms just above the reception / front door, with panoramic views over the harbour to Valletta. There is a selection of restaurants in the hotel, we tried them all, some better than others, but all acceptable.
The spa area includes indoor and outdoor swimming pools, sauna etc (free), and other facilities (at extra cost, which I did not try).
All the staff were friendly, some more efficient than others but all tried to be helpful.
I would definitely go there again.

Good location

6 times been to Malta now, every time we come we get a better hotel, this one was very good, make sure you get a sea view. The food was decent enough but was a bit repetitive, we eat out after the 3rd day, plenty of restaurants handy near by. The rooms are good and spacious, AC good, Bed was massive,got a good nights kip.
All in all not a bad place to stay, right on the front..
