We stayed in the tower room with a fantastic sea view. Positive: - Service as never expected: friendly, professional and experienced staff (big plus for hiring 40/50+ experienced employees) - very good food in the lobby restaurant and room service (great price/quality) - fantastic breakfast (wide choice, fast service, no queues) - well equipped kids club - great location (close to numerous restaurants, shopping outlets) - SPA with nice and professional staff - overall very clean areas to improve: - no free internet in rooms (quite expensive); fortunately free of charge in the lobby area - bathrooms very clean but ... a bit “tired” as for 5* hotel - outside (terrace) a bit badly repainted and humidity does its work… - same thing with the underground parking but this is less important… Room Tip: Tower rooms have a fantastic sea view and large terraces. read hotel review

Good Hotel, central location

  • September 2014
after some check-in problems, while no rooms very ready even after 15hrs, the overall stay was nice. There are a lot of attractions next to the hotel, ans public transportation stops in front of the hotel. In a 5 minute-walk you reach the party-street of St. Julian's, and if you walk 5 minutes more, you reach the harbor with the nicer restaurants. There is no beach in the hotel. read hotel review

During the entire stay because the pool area was considered by a large bauzelt for construction, one had already at breakfast were no beautiful sight and could not be used for sunbathing. Also the condition of the plants (some halbvertrocknete palms) unfortunately not very appealing. If you are not the wi-fi used possibility in the lobby, was on a very costly variant on food, in today's time not for a hotel of this star category. Only probably not the 5 star status justified large spacious rooms. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. read hotel review

More than disappointed.

The island Malta as a destination for the whole year is advertised. The hotels are the unfortunately not. The Westin is, if at all only suitable for the summer months. The hotel was literally in the 'sluggishness'. Despite good weather was opened only at the beginning of the outdoor april starting to clear up. The outdoor pool was under a huge tent. Beach chairs were not available. The indoor pool, the should serve as compensation was a disaster. Altogether over 300 rooms 7 beach chairs. Everything was very dirty and worn. The sanitary facilities in the pool area were poor. ... Everything broken and neglected. The changing rooms of gyms were in the pool area, so that everyone had to walk through with its shoe once crosswise. Until 7:00 p. m. children were only allowed to in the pool. The we found to be pure cheek, as was noted this anywhere. Zero comfort. The 'alleged' beach area was locked. The food in the hotel is average, but the restaurant is very good quattro. The hotel made a rather worn impression but overall. Peeling paint everywhere. The room we had (a suite) was large and had a nice view. However the room is very badly soundproofed. You could hear every word the neighbors. And if this around 11:55 p. m. wanted to look far, we had to follow the program with acoustically. The tennis center is also in a bad condition. Positive noticed, that all staff extremely friendly and we had the impression that it was honest. The location is great, directly on the sea. The description of the hotel in the catalog and on the website of the hotel do not reflect the actual condition again. Conclusion: the friendliness of the staff unfortunately not able to compensate for the rest. Therefore we do not come again! read hotel review

Information about Hotel The Westin Dragonara Resort

Hotel Information

Hotel description

Hotel description

  • What the hotel offers
    Suffused with the clear stillness of our refreshing seaside location, The Westin Dragonara Resort is a luxury 5 star hotel in Malta, in which nothing matters except your delight. The Westin Dragonara Resort rests on its 74,000-square-metre peninsula like a crown jewel, offering a glimpse of opulence and optimism to every guest. The azure waters of the Mediterranean lap against our private beaches, rimming the two beach lidos, casino and luxury hotel with their refreshing buoyancy. And with the blend of ancient and modern wonders of downtown only minutes away, there are endless possibilities for renewal.
  • Location
    On the Republic of Malta's largest island, The Westin Dragonara Resort, Malta is a luxurious retreat situated on a 74,000-square-meter peninsula. Located in the midst of the Mediterranean Sea and its stunning setting, Malta is conveniently just a few hours' flight from most European airports. The Maltese Islands have been described as one big open-air museum. What makes them unique is that so much of their past is visible today. Delve into the Islands' mysterious prehistory, retrace the footsteps of St Paul or see where the Knights of St John defended Christendom. Throughout the cities, towns and countryside surrounding the resort, culture, art and history abound. Intimate beaches, stunning scenery, churches, and 7,000-year-old Neolithic temples are some of the attractions that can be found. Shopping, entertainment and dining downtown are also just steps from the resort. In just 48 hours and a kilometre or two, you can try a new sport, laze on an island cruise and tour the most important historic sites, and still have time to join in the nightlife. That's the real advantage of a stay here. Though Maltese is the official national language, English is considered the second language and is spoken throughout the island. In addition, Italian, French and German are also widely spoken. The Euro is the local currency in Malta, which changed in January 2008 from the Maltese Lira (Lm).
  • Accommodation
    Featuring 340 sea view guest rooms and suites as graceful as their sparkling sea views, The Westin Dragonara Resort, Malta offers the largest and most variety of room types on our airy archipelago. Private balconies allow the gentle breezes of the Mediterranean to breathe new life into your day. You can put your whimsies into writing at our spacious work desk, connect with high speed Internet access, relax in front of plasma TVs or drift off on the wings of creativity. And at the end of the day the cloud-soft linens of our Heavenly® Bed will be waiting to whisk you away to a dream world from which you will emerge renewed...restored to your very best. Such are the delights of Westin.
  • Food and Drink
    Take pleasure in the best Mediterranean and world cuisine, prepared by our world-class chefs using the freshest local ingredients at one of our 3 restaurants and bars. Here at the Westin Dragonara Resort, Malta, there is something for everyone, whether you are seeking a casual ambiance or a more formal dining experience. We welcome you to enjoy our beautiful indoor dining rooms or the alfresco terraces and balconies, which also can be used to host special events and private meals. The reason why the Westin is renowned for its innovative cuisine is that the chefs only use the freshest and best of local, Mediterranean and world fare. Private in-room dining as well as private lunches and dinners can be served on any of the resort's terraces or balconies. For those wishing to dine in the comfort and privacy of their room, we also offer a complete room service menu.
