Absolutely brilliant hotel, will be returning!!

We started our trip by meeting 5 family members who had arrived a few days before us. We booked a land view room and after a short wait at reception to get the room cards we actually had an amazing sea view room right above the reception, which we did not expect but this was a brilliant start to a brilliant holiday! The room was spotless and the beds are huge and very comfy! We passed a few members of staff on the way to our room who all welcomed us to the hotel. There is a hair drier and a kettle with milk, sugar, tea bags and coffee, plus bottles of water in the fridge on arrival which is brilliant if you arrive after the hotel shop has closed, there are fresh water machines all over the hotel so keep your bottles so you can refill free of charge. We ate in all of the themed restaurants except the Brazilian, they too were fantastic, I would especially recommend the Italian and Asian restaurants, everything was brilliant with a lot of choice. There were 11 of us all together and no matter how busy the hotel was the staff always managed to arrange a table for us to be seated together. The coral restaurant (main) was also fantastic with lots to choose from there were 11 in our group and none of us had any trouble. Around the hotel itself it is very quiet as there are only a few bars up the hill and a few restaurants, maybe the area is lacking in a karaoke bar or something as the bars and shows at the hotel were good but after a few nights you want to get out and about, as the queue for the buses are always horrendous you do not always want to travel via bus up to Silema or Hill top but obviously this is not the fault of the hotel. For 1.50 you can get from the hotel to viletta and back (we traveled here for the Sunday market only to find that they do not do this anymore and the markets now travel around). The beach is literally over the road from the hotel so you do not have to walk for miles. Popeye village is also not far on bus/coach. We spent most of our time around the adult pool as there are no children in our group and it was so peaceful, although i think they could benefit from some quiet background music. Overall this was a brilliant holiday and i will 100% be returning in the future, hopefully when there is more to do outside the hotel. We would also like to advise management of the brilliant work that Frankie and Douchen do in the bars as they never stop, running around collecting glassed emptying ashtrays etc. and they always have time for a laugh. Thank you for a brilliant holiday and we hope to see you soon!!More

Relaxing holiday

I stayed at the Seabank from 08/07 - 15/07 as a first proper holiday with my boyfriend (we are 20 and 24). We arrived at gone midnight and were given our room key nice and quickly. ROOM - Room 2442. This was a family room so huge and spacious for just the two of us. Terrace 'balcony' with no view other than a stone wall (not sea or pool view), we didn't mind this as it good for keeping the balcony shady and nice to sit out in the evening and it was quiet. Beds fairly comfy. Aircon worked wonderfully. Shower nice and powerful. Hairdryer good. We liked the little reading lights by the bed too! Cleaned very well daily. We loved the fact bottled water was provided at the start of our stay and also the coffee making facilities. There was never any noise. FOOD - Coral restaurant is the main buffet restaurant. We felt this was really good with a huge variety of food, although sometimes a wee bit cold. We enjoyed the night with all the world foods the most. Breakfast was amazing and SO much to choose from. We went to the Brazilian restaurant, 100% worth a visit the pork is out of this world! Give the Italian a miss, it was boring and bland in my opinion. Pool restaurant is good for a bite to eat in the middle of the afternoon. Would've liked to see some curry and rice at least one night and less bolognase sauce! DRINKS - Huge list of cocktails included in the all inclusive! All very good, especially tequila sunrise. I'm not a wine expert but white wine was pretty good for me. Soft drinks and wine is all self service. Fruit juices and tea and coffee in the restaurants. Sitting outside in the bar with a cocktail watching the sun go down over the bay was perfect. ENTERTAINMENT - We gave the evening entertainment a miss as we found this too cringe to watch, but we do respect how much effort the animation team put in every day. The aquagym class looked fun! We watched the World Cup in the dome which was really fun and a great atmosphere. POOL/BEACH - Pool was really nice, cold but refreshing after a longue in the hot Maltese sun. There is an adults only pool if you can't stand screaming kids but we didn't mind this as we are big kids ourselves. One day we went to the pool at 2pm and there was still loads of sunbeds (ones in the shade too!) which was great. We ate some food from the pool restaurant outside which was nice too and took the trays back ourselves as people come round to collect empty glasses and not always the food trays, some guests left theirs outside for the wasps to come.. We didn't go to the beach properly but we had a paddle late afternoon and the water was really warm! PLACES TO VISIT - We went somewhere different everyday as the bus cost just 6.5 euros for a weekly pass, although be prepared to stand in the most awkward positions as these get rammed at around 3pm-7pm everyday. Visit the Hypogeum in Paola for a bit of ancient history, it is amazing (you need to book about two months in advance). Gozo ferry was about 5 euros, we did the open top tour bus and stopped off at the Azure Window, which was beautiful (for all you Game of Thrones fans too!) and my favourite part of the whole week. Get a boat trip to Blue Lagoon! There is a boat company I can't remember the name but downstairs in the hotel there is a lady so you can book. This was 12 euros for about a 5hour trip and the boat stopped a few times so you could jump off! Blue lagoon as you would expect is rammed most of the time, so be prepared to perch your belongings off the edge of the wateredge and jump in!! Mdina was beautiful and a must visit. Mellieha itself isn't a huge place but there is a pretty church, a few gift shops and restaurants if you want something to do in close proximity of the hotel. GRIPES ABOUT SEABANK - 1 - I was aware of the apparent manic sundays the hotel has with locals coming to use the hotel, so we went to Valetta for the day to avoid this. Back at the hotel at dinner time, the comments I'd previously read about this were true. There were screaming children running around the big food servers chasing eachother and chairs pulled up around tables, making it difficult to walk past. I knew these were people using the hotel for the day as they had different wristbands to all inclusive guests. This I have to say was not a relaxing experience for us, two people who wanted to eat dinner in relative peace, and we couldn't wait to get out of there. All the other children seemed reasonably well behaved sat at the table the other nights. 2 - At lunch one day I had just come back with a plate full of food, but forgot cutlery. I went to get this and came back to find my plate to have been taken by the waitress and put in the bin. Kind of annoying and very wasteful. It seems as if it's almost a race for the restaurant staff to get your plate, often when I still have a mouthful of food. So watch your plates future guests! 3 - Found the shop staff on the shopping level somewhat rude. Saying a friendly and cheerful hello to them only to get "5 euro" back is not very polite. Otherwise we found our stay very enjoyable and we got everything we wanted out of our holiday. We would definitely come back one day! I would recommend this to friends too and people our age, don't be put off by the "family hotel" vibe the reviews might give, yes it is a family hotel but it is also perfect for a relaxing couples holiday with a bit of exploring the maltese islands!More

Excellent value and Service

This was our first trip to Malta and a birthday present for my wife. It was also my first fully "packaged" holiday having always been a fully committed independent traveller. All my apprehensions were fully dispatched by the Seabank hotel and Spa. It was comfortable spacious perfectly located for a good holiday in the sun and by the sea. The all inclusive deal was well worth it as it meant a good degree of freedom to explore the fascinating archipelago. The food was good considering the fact of needing to cater for the masses, don't expect Cordon Bleu but it is good, honest and plentiful as are the cocktails for those of us who have seen the wrong side of 18. All in all we will be back again and would wholeheartedly recommend this resort.More

Peter S,

Absolutely amazing!!!!

We have just got back from 2 weeks here and what an amazing holiday we have had!!!! Everything was so smooth from checking in to checking out, all of the staff are wonderful, friendly and helpful. The rooms were spacious and always cleaned to a good standard, we had a pool view and some reviews state it can be loud on an evening with the entertainment but that is not the case at all.. There is no need for balcony doors to be open as the air con and fan works wonderfully well. The resort it's self is great, the pool and other activities were brill. The animation team worked so hard and always had a smile of their face, they really made our holiday! The shows on an evening were fun and although some were slightly cheesy they always worked so hard and put on a show. They were all talented but Stephanie - what amazing dancer! The kids club was also amazing they always had things going on for the kids and before coming I was sceptical about leaving my daughter in others care abroad as we hadn't done this before but they are all so professional and make you feel so relaxed, my daughter loved going for tea with the kids club and loved the arts and crafts every morning. All the staff were great but a special mention to Belinda who was absolutely great, she worked so hard and was wonderful with all the kids, a very talented woman. The food - wow! Absolutely amazing, having only stayed all inclusive once before coming to seabank I wasn't expecting much, but I was so impressed!! We enjoyed every single meal and even though we stayed there 2 weeks we never got bored - we ate in the Brazilian Italian and oriental and all were superb!!!! The fact you can literally eat from 7-10pm every day was great as you didn't have to plan your day around food. The drinks were also great, good long cocktail list and the bar staff would make you what ever you liked. If you want your drinks stronger just ask, they were always happy to help and so friendly. The location was great. The beach was just across the road and it was lovely, we got the bus to the aquarium and also into paceville I think it's called? Both times the bus were on time for 1.50 euro for a day ticket the island is your oyster! We also went to the blue lagoon which was over crowded and very expensive at 14 euros for 2 small little chairs and an umbrella, however I am glad we went as the views were breathtaking. It's worth a visit but don't expect to stay there long as you will probably get sick of the crowds. We haven't stayed in Malta before but I have totally fallen in love with the island... Seabank you made our holiday one to remember forever, thank you and WE WILL BE BACK!!More
