We paid extra for a room with side sea view and balcony, the room being quite dated but comfortable for the time we... More

I will start this review by saying that in life you get what you pay for and my short stay at the Primera Hotel Bugibba reflects that. This was a very last minute booking at this hotel , less than 24 hours before arriving. I had to make a quick visit to Malta to visit a sick relative . I... More

Spent four nights at the Primera Hotel from 26th to 30th December, with my Mum and husband. We enjoyed our stay here and will consider the hotel for our next visit. Having visited Malta quite a few times, and Buggiba in particular, we knew exactly where the hotel was, and this was one of the reasons we booked, as we... More

However, one of our rooms was not available till 2pm, due to having two rooms booked this wasn't a problem as we just... More
