Rated 3 out of 5 by FFCC General review
The common area are up to standards but not the rooms, where expecially the bathrooms where out of date and a bit let dowm.
Also, I deemed unacceptable that they had constrution works in front of the pool beginning as early as 7am. That's not the type of respect that one expects in an hotel of this type.
So, good hotel and location but the touch to make a difference is defnitely lacking.

Rated 5 out of 5 by myself7 Excellent hotel with friendly service
The hotel is excellent both interms of accommodation and service. Rooms are spacious, staff is friendly. The hotel also has restaurants ranging from casual to fine dining. The lobby bar is an excellent place to u wind and have a light meal with friends or si ply a coffee with a taste from the pastry chef. The terrace is the hotel's casual restaurant serving breakfast and lunch. Whilst for that special event a visit to Quadros across the street from the main hotel building is a must. Here fine dining is at its best, as is atmosphere and service. I would recommend this hotel for both families and couples.

Very nice hotel with a great breakfast and great rooms with a great view. Nice staff and a great location by the sea. open the sliding doors in your room and listen to the waves as you fall asleep.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Catherine1 Bad start
When we arrived at the hotel we were disappointed that although we had specified that we wanted a sea view we were given a room which looked straight across to other balconies.We were told that as you could see the sea when you went out on to the balcony it had a sea view.However we were given another room which did face the sea but also overlooked the tennis courts so the view wasn't actually great. The next disappointment was that our luggage took so long to be brought to our room that we went down and got it ourselves. One of the hotel supervisors noticed how fed up we were and offered us a junior suite to make up for the inconvenience,we did not accept this as it had the same view as the first room offered. After this bad start everything went smoothly, the room was spacious, well equipped and clean, the food and service in the Quadro restaurant was superb and staff generally were polite and friendly. My only other complaint was that on one day of our stay we came back at four o'clock after a tiring day in M'dina to find that our room had not been made up, we had to ask at reception twice before a maid cleaned the room and we did not get in there until five fifteen!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Eddy51 Hotel policy rules!
The most frequented sentence: Hotel policy.
Kids not allowed to the mounge, not allowed in the inside pool, kids are chased away like dogs by the staff if their parents are not with them in the inside pool... I can continue.
Focus on paying and then get a very mediocre room. I hot as a Platinum for life an upgrade to a standard room, with the balcony facing 2 walls, wow. I had to wait till 4 PM before I could check in with 2 small kids. This is the first place were not even a glass of water was offered. The wellcoming was like a 3rd world border: passport, please. The staff didn't have a clue, took them 45 minutes to figure out the SPG Kids pass.... totally uninterested until it came to the price.
WiFi is extremely slow.
Good points: concierge, lounge and some people are outstanding and left a positive note about an hotel that I would like to forget.
On a side note, in the kids club, there were 2 oddlers fighting, the staff was enjoying it and only when I said something, they intervened.
Maybe I'm spoiled by staying in only good Starwood properties, but, hey I stayed at many of them and this is defenitly in my top 3 worst ran places.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Dor307 Very competent staff
Very good location. Very friendly and competent staff. A wonderful reception with very tasteful decorations and pleasant scents. The rooms are very comfortable and clean with breathtaking seaviews, though the curtain rail was damaged and the balcony door lock didn't function properly. The breakfast buffet was lovely and one can enjoy delicious Maltese specialities. One thing that could be improved during breakfast is the coffee.Unfortunetly the coffee tasted like instant and most of the time was lukewarm!

Friendliness & willingness of staff to ensure that all needs were met when requesting assistance and/or information was appreciated.
The attention of Starwood Club & Restaurant staff was second to none.

Rated 5 out of 5 by maggie002 5 STAR LUXURY WITH A LITTLE EXTRA
Without doubt this is one of the best hotels I've stayed in. My extra large bedroom was heaven, from the 'heavenly' beds to the power shower and white fluffy robes. But mostly the staff. They are so friendly and pleasant at all times without being intrusive. My every need was catered for. Excellent.

We spent Christmas 2012 week at the Westin Dragonara in Malta. We were warmly welcomed by a very friendly and efficient staff. Pam, in the Executive Lounge, especially stands out as a friendly and compassionate asset to the hotel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Loisrim Excellent friendly hotel - well worth a visit.
The Westin Hotel is situated in an excellent position enabling us to get around Malta. Benefit coming back from daily walks and trips was the excellent half board basis which we availed off in the excellent bar area. All the staff are very friendly and approachable but escepially Ramon, Mike , Mark, Christina, Charles , Juan, Michael, Valerie and Bernard. We cant recommend this hotel enough as a very restful holiday.

Rated 5 out of 5 by fallenmadge Lighting up the Sky
We've just spent a very relaxing 5 days at the Westin Dragonara, and i have to say a very big thank you to all the staff who made us feel very welcome, especially Sue who got us the room with the view. Not only did we have a lovely view across the pool and bay but also the night Sky. Particularly when there was very dramatic Electric and Lightning storms through our stay and we laid in bed watching them.
Thank you to Mark and all the staff in the bar for very yummy food and cocktails.
Would love to see the Hotel again in less dramatic weather conditions and make use of all the outside facilities and kids club.
Thank you W D, *****

Rated 5 out of 5 by Root Very well managed hotel
My wife and I spent 8 wonderful nights at your hotel and we enjoyed every aspect of it.
We were particularly impressed with the staff and their level of professionalism which was demonstrated in all areas.
The food and beverage operation was impressive and we ate in the hotel (which is unusual for us)
Perhaps the area which we enjoyed most was the Lounge where we enjoyed the service and the food offered.
Can I make particular mention of Edmond's piano playing, which in itself would be enough to bring us back to the hotel. He is a real asset to the hotel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by golfingwidow recharging batteries
Our first ever visit to Malta where do I begin - from the moment we arrived until the moment we had to leave (unfortunately) we were made to feel welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The staff are wonderful and they all seem very happy in their work - a real credit to the hotel. Within a day they remembered our preferences and made us feel very valued. The only down side (which had nothing to do with the hotel or staff) was our Expedia rep was supposed to meet us on the Saturday at the Westin - we wasted 45mins of pool time waiting for them to arrive (which they never did). The whole experience at the Westin was wonderful the breakfast was incredible and we had a truly special meal at the Quadro restaurant. Would we return - it can't be soon enough we came home so refreshed and relaxed and batteries recharged - already recommending the resort to our friends and family and we will definitely be back

After staying a few times now at the Westin Dragonara Resort Malta, it is as coming home every time. The friendly staff does, luckily, not change a lot, and recognises guest who return to the hotel. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. It is easy to relax and enjoy a wonderful holiday.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PolAD A hotel we must return to!
We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 week stay at the Westin Dragonara. An excellent location with spacious grounds. The executive room was perfect and the benefits of the executive package were well above expectation and made our holiday special. The staff could not have been more helpful and friendly and so our first trip to Malta was enough to persuade us that we must return. To the Dragonara, of course!

Westin is an average 4 star hotel.
The staff at this Westin make the hotel, particularly the Front Desk and Concierge staff who always seemed to go the extra mile for guests.
Room maintenance needs upgrading to 4 /5 star standard to keep up with marketing aspirations and competition.
This location is excellent for getting out and about.
