In October of 2017, a firm favourite of mine, the le Meridian in Malta, closed its doors to undertake a massive refurbishment. Now, the "Phoenix" is about to rise from the ashes. In October, after 2 years and £ 30million later, the brand new Marriott Malta is due to open for business.
The location is superb, on Baluta Bay, and the computer generated images of the rooms look good as against the slightly tired rooms of the old or Meridien so the physical signs for the new Marriott look good. My only hope is that the new Marriott carries forward the wonderful hospitality and customer service of the old le Meridien. All our family have stayed there On numerous occasions and all loved it. (It also is situated very close to my favourite resteraunt in Europe, Wigi's Kitchen!)
I have booked a 4 night trial stay in mid November, to test the waters, so we will see if the Marriott can live up to my expectations!
