The Seabank Resort & Spa has a prime location just across the road from Mellieha Bay, Malta’s best beach. It’s got a big pool, too, plus a separate splash area for little ones. Food-wise, there are international, Asian and Mediterranean buffets, plus Brazilian and Italian speciality places. Mellieha Town itself is a 20-minute walk up the hill, and there’s a bus that stops outside the hotel.

Don't be mislead by the rave reviews
We have just returned from a four week stay at the Seabank and quite honestly we wish we had never seen the place. We originally were going to book another hotel but were persuaded by the rave reviews this hotel gets on tripadvisor. Well, let me tell you, you don't want to believe everything you read. I'll begin with the positives. On the whole the hotel was clean enough, although the carpets in every hallway were badly stained. The hotel had plenty of facilities, which is why, I would assume, it has achieved a four star rating. The staff are all very well presented and helpful and pleasant. However, after these few attributes the positives are very thin on the ground. The negatives I'm afraid are numerous. Firstly in our room the toilet roll holder fell off three times and was only fixed when longer screws were used at the third time of repair. We also had a night visitor in the shape of a two to three inch, red, cockroach which paid us a call at midnight and scared my wife to death. True, the staff moved us (upgraded) to another room the next day although they said it had probably come in from outside even though we were on the sixth floor and that such insects are common in Med' - not in my room they're not. Before I leave the room comments I should add that on several occasions our room/rooms were not made up until gone 15:00hrs - one of the cleaners told me she had rooms on three floors to attend to and proved it by showing me her itinery for that day (19 rooms in all). Moving on, the food was, at times, bordering on the inedable. It was often of a concoction I have never come across and never want to again; stir fry kangeroo, baked salmon in a banana and mango topping and bannoffe cake with prunes, were just some of the many highlights. Add to this the fact that, on many occasions, the food was barely warm and some of it under cooked. The best meal of the day, as one person has commented on, was breakfast. However, if you were not early to rise you would have had to queue for your toast as they, it seems, have only one toaster in the whole hotel - they did have two but one was never seen again after the first week of our stay. The bacon they have is shrink wrapped and when they cook it they do not seperate the rashers from each other which means that the pieces that have been stuck together are not fully cooked where they have been pressed next to each other in the packaging and the eggs are either too raw ( sunny side up - which means UV starvation) or incinerated ( basking on the griddle too long). Of course we complained but the chef, who did ring us to be fair, merely said we were the only ones complaining and that he was sure the food had been properly cooked - which it probably was in Mongolia. He did say he would look into it but of course nothing, as far as we could tell, was ever done to rectify any of the problems. Next I must mention the dreaded flies, these pesky creatures are everywhere and on one occasion, at lunch in their Laguna Restaurant we were constantly bombarded by at least a dozen or more and this remember was in November so what it's like in summer God only knows. Once again we did tell them about the fly menace and once again the good old chef rang us to say that he was sure that he had adequate deterrents in place to keep the problem at bay - I don't think the man wanted to hear the phrase, "Well it isn't working." Lastly, we had an early morning flight home and were told that it would be no bother has we could have an early morning breakfast in the Oriental Restaurant, which we attempted to do. We arrived at our last meal before departure at 06:15hrs only to find half a dozen Germans trying to concoct something to eat amongst the left overs of last nights dinner. One woman suggested that we could play football with the bread and rolls as they were that hard - which they were. The reception staff did bring two, new, sliced loaves and said that was all they could do as they didn't provide anything else for early breakfast except salad, bread, cereal and cake - the latter left over from the day before. Now I wasn't expecting a cooked breakfast but TOAST, was that too much to ask for? To cap it all the flies were out in force again even at this hour. One last point to make is that at weekends this out of season hotel throngs with different groups all on cut price deals. One week end we had three hundred university students rampaging down the corridors, another weekend families with multitudes of children and then a medical conference. The knock-on effect is that there just isn't enough places to sit in the lobby and the noise level increases dramatically. And then it rained and rained and rained and the hotel began to leak like the hull of the striken Titanic. Towels to the fore the staff did wonders in trying to keep out the cascading water. Consequently, after four weeks in hell I echo the lyrics that Alan Sherman once sang, "Hello mother, hello father here I am at Camp Granada ........" Believe me I have travelled extensively in my 63 years as a musician and I tell you truthfully the Seabank hotel is nothing like a four star and those that think it is should visit a few more places so that they can better judge what really is.More

Nice hotel friendly staff
Enjoyed our stay here apart from weather, 4days out of 7wet n windy. The hotel rooms were bright and clean, maid service was every morning. Themed restaurants were nice but found service poor in Brazilian. Food was good with plenty of choice at the other ones, would really benefit from a restaurant you could dress up to go to as none use table cloths ect a bit canteen style that said the food was good. Spa area and indoor pool was handy as weather so bad but gym not well equipped. Hotel is clean staff friendly food and drinks good for a/I . Would not say it was a 4star but nice place none the less. Word of warning, hotel opens to locals for weekend stays we found main restaurant very busy and lots of young children . Good access to beach and bus stops opposite hotel if you want to explore the island. We enjoyed our stay here .More

Fab holiday, 2nd year in a row!
We returned to the seabank hotel for our first anniversary after staying there for our honeymooon. Our room was perfect (5204) very clean, the cleaning staff were brilliant. Reception staff were very helpful and approachable. We spent 1 night in the Caverna suite, i have a spider phobia and the cave effect on the walls and seeing a big one in the caverna just ruined it for me, and the weather was bad so we couldnt use the hot tub. It also had no english tv channels and being honest it really wasnt built very well. the shower sloped away from the drain so the bathroom floor kept flooding (and the shower floor was all wooden..dont know how long that will last) the extra bedding in the wardrobe also had a horrible smell about it which im presuming came from the stuff used on the walls. i much preferred the hotel room which was just perfect, couldnt fault it. The caverna just seemed very cheap looking inside and the finish in the bathroom even the tiles looked very badly done. We ate in all of the restaurants, they were all lovely as they were the previous year. the tables are squashed together a it so u can feel a bit uncomfortably close to the people beside u. Although the only downside was the La Vista restaurant, we went there on our final night but i found the service in there to be really poor, the staff just didnt seem to care. i wouldnt recommend going there, near enough the same food gets served in the normal buffet restaurant. The Shop is very handy and we used it daily for the papers. The spa was brilliant, my husband and i had a few treatments each and we really did enjoy them.More

Would not recommend for winter long stay for older guests
We were going to book a holiday at a nearby hotel when I read the rave reviews on Trip Advisor and so decided to pay a little extra and have our 3 week stay at the Seabank. This was a big mistake. Yes, the rooms are clean and comfortable and contain flat screen TV, included safe, tea and coffee making facilities, fridge, water bottles, UK 3 pin sockets, wifi and hairdryer. The bathroom was very modern, but the plug arrangements were useless and it would be very difficult for anyone with mobility issues to climb over the wide bath side to get a shower or bath. No hand grips were provided. The food was generally plentiful, fresh and varied, but there was very little on offer for the conservative British taste. Breakfast was the best meal of the day. We usually arrived in the Laguna restaurant for lunch about 2pm after our explorations of the island to find we had a choice of either congealed lunch offerings or very sad looking junk food. There were lovely bread rolls, but no cold meat to even make sandwiches. The only TV channels available in the room in English are Euronews and 2 obscure film channels, and it took 3 visits to reception and finally a word with the manager before we even got these. The TV downstairs in the bar area was usually on, but muted with other loud music playing so it was difficult to watch. But, we didn’t spend our holiday watching TV! The animation team put on excellent shows at 9.30 in the Dome. This was repeated weekly, so after our first week we were at a loose end in the evening. This resort was obviously built with summer in mind and there were lots of outside seating areas. Inside there were a few uncomfortable seats scattered about the lobby and those in the bar area which filled very quickly. A separate winter lounge or card room would be a very useful addition. The worst feature for us was the invasion of the hotel by large groups of locals including many young families at the weekend. We understand that the hotel has beds to fill, but we felt like second class citizens as they had reserved tables and generally took over making the hotel very noisy and with even less chance of securing a seat in the restaurant or bar. I think if we had been here for a week we may have overlooked the shortcomings, but for longer it became a real issue. We enjoyed exploring Malta using the local buses which were plentiful and cheap, but just wish we had stayed in a more UK friendly local hotel.More
