How to Get There
The hotel itself is lovely, the only problem is that it's completely in the middle of nowhere, as a result of this they completely take advantage of this, the prices are ridiculous, 7.50 euros for a pint of beer is even more than London prices, the food is nice but again 18 euros for a sandwich is just extortionate. You have no choice but to pay this unless you want to mess around with buses to get anywhere. The bus is only 2 euros but the taxis as per usual rip you off, it's about 18 euros to get ten minutes down the road. Won't be coming here again.
We spent 9 days here in August leaving last week. Unfortunately we can only add to some of the comments already made. We booked this 5 star hotel on a half board basis because we wanted a very quiet time in a bit of luxury. Unfortunately the hotel is neither! We were met by being told that we were upgraded to a junior suite but after paying thousands of pounds to stay there in the first place .....if we hadn’t been upgraded we would have been on the first boat back to Malta !!
The first afternoon we could have cried ! Disco music screaming out over the pool area every afternoon between 2.30 and 6.30 - luckily this stopped after the first few days but what 5 star hotel would do that ?
The food was mixed - because we were half board we thought we’d have a choice of restaurants like it advertises......most of the restaurants were closed and the buffet stopped after 2 nights. The remaining restaurant was in a lovely setting and the first night the food was delicious - however it soon became apparent that the menu of three starters and 4/5 main courses was the same every night apart from fish( but you had to pay about 10 euros to have it filleted !!!) We got so fed up we went for pizza one night in the bar but again so disappointed to be having a basic pizza when you’d paid for half board at a 5 star hotel. Like others have said everything is ridiculously expensive 5.5 euros for a bottle of water ,30 euros was cheapest bottle of wine but not that nice - coffee was really poor quality - particularly at breakfast and one day at 5pm I was told by the pool bar that I couldn’t have coffee because the waiter had cleaned the machine !! Rooms have beautiful bathrooms but definitely need a modernisation programme elsewhere - decor a bit 1980s.
On the plus point the island is beautiful - the young waiters were absolutely lovely and were so attentive. The pools were lovely but the so called adult pool was invariably filled with children. The shuttle bus was great and took you around the island and the reception staff were delightful.
For us the hotel was such a disappointment..I definitely wouldn’t recommend half board . I have to say though it comes no where near other 5 star hotels that we’ve stayed in and sadly was certainly not worth the money that we paid to stay there. We wouldn’t return to the Kemlinski .
And the manager - please don’t thank me for my comments because others have been saying the same things for a long time and nothing is clearly changing. I think the kemplinski chain needs to invest in this hotel and it’s very telling that this hotel is missing from the flashy kemplinski chain of hotels book that is in the bed rooms.
We stayed 2 nights on a recent Europe trip. The good: The property is very nice with 3 huge pools. Always a chair to be had. Even the basic room is quite big. The bathroom is well equipped. Nice big bed, good sheets. The decor is not my thing. Fits the scheme. But feels 10-15 years out of date. Needs a contemporary refresh.
Shout out for the front desk. Danila was nothing but superbly helpful.
Price is ok for this level of resort. The read all you can press reader app service is nice.
Tech: the Wifi was spotty and frequently hard to connect to. Today this should be seamless. The TV needs an urgent refresh to a decent new HD panel and a better channel setup.
As other commented look elsewhere for dining. Very expensive. The breakfast is solid. But only a 3 out of 5 for this class of hotel. Also experienced that there is no made to order station and we were not offered an ommlet or similar.
Would I recommend it? Yes, if you can get it on a good rate.
