The 3-star Luna Holiday complex is an excellent value-for-money hotel offering basic but comfortable accommodation in a great location in Mellieha. The beach is a leisurely stroll away, and a bus stop outside the hotel takes guests into Mellieha town centre for those who do not fancy the uphill walk. The hotel itself is medium-sized, with two freshwater swimming pools, a popular restaurant offering a buffet and a la carte menu, 2 bars and regular evening entertainment put on. Rooms are simple but fairly spacious and come with good self-catering facilities; ideal for those looking to save money on their holiday. All in all this hotel is a great choice for those after a low cost base from which to explore this beautiful part of Malta.
The location of the Luna Holiday Complex is a feature of the hotel that is regularly praised in reviews. It is situated close to the main road leading to Mellieha Beach and Mellieha town centre. Arguably the best beach on Malta, Mellieha Beach is just 350m from the hotel and boasts clean white sands, sparkling waters and a host of watersports to try. Mellieha town is an attractive village atop a hill, with a main road that winds down the hillside to the beach. The hotel is at the foot of this hill, so less mobile guests will appreciate the bus stop outside the complex which runs a service into town. Numerous bat trips can be booked from the picturesque marina nearby, including trips to the islands of Gozo and Comino as well as the Blue Lagoon. For a small fee you can also catch the bus to the island’s capital, Valetta.

Superior studios sleep 1-2 people and are larger, with twin beds and sofa bed. One bedroom apartments sleep 1-4 people and come with a separate twin bedroom as well as a living area with double bed.
