After an incredible holiday in AC Marriott in Sitges in 2022, I decided to try the new hotel in Malta, St Julians. Unfortunately the standard of the Malta AC is no where near that of Sitges & I was really quite disappointed.
I booked this hotel the day it opened, for my birthday week with a view of the city however the room I was first given was on the 2nd floor directly above the entrance signage which meant light beaming into the room, the in-room fridge light remained permanently on which was bright and the city view I expected was of a building site. My holiday was ruined by this and I asked within an hour of checking in, to get my money back. The gents at reception said they would get back to me, they did not. I had to ask again the next morning; this time to a lady to sort out an alternative room which she found me on the 6th floor which had a better view so I stayed, though I would not choose this hotel again for a 7 day stay as you cannot really enjoy the room with such a terrible busy road and building site outside.
Also I notice a lot of noise from other guests in their rooms.
The rest of the hotel is pretty nice - two pools however the rooftop pool has cheap plastic sun loungers and the cushions are all covered in sun lotion staines and the towels provided aren’t big enough to fully cover the beds.
The staff in the restaurant and bar are amazing, they are very friendly, always checking if you need anything - pool side drinks and menu is also great value and tasty.
