I usually love this hotel. Having stayed here many times before I was looking forward to returning and to seeing the new upgrades/refurbishment to the hotel. I thought the building work would have been finished for the peak season....I was wrong. On the plus side: the new adults-only roof-top pool is now open (and it's lovely, with a spectacular view...

Am staying at the hotel till 27th July with my family. We were a little concerned about staying here after reading the reviews and we were half expecting to be walking into a building site but its a million miles away from that. There is work being done but it has had no impact on our stay here. We are... More

The hotel in itself is rather pleasant but there is building work going on constantly, apparently they have spent €30 million on the refurbishment yet there are buckets placed around the hotel to catch leaks and there are damp patches around the walls and ceiling. The corridor carpets have not been cleaned since we arrived 6 days ago and we... More

Just returned from a fabulous stay, what a lovely hotel!! We could not falter the food or the staff. We stayed in a fabulous spacious and beautifully designed room with fantastic views and everyone really went out of their way to make our stay extra special. Would recommend anyone visiting Malta to give this hotel a try.

The works at the San Antonio show what the hotel lacks the most: coordination and organization. Everything that happens seems an emergency with the staff not prepared to deal with it. The hotel itself is great: large rooms, fantastic pool, great location but then something inevitably goes wrong and you will get often disappointed with how the hotel will solve... More

This is a lovely hotel, the rooms are very spacious and well designed. We were disappointed in the food in the restaurant, plenty of choice but not all that nice. We were glad we only went b&b, paid 19 Euros each for dinner one night and the potatoes were undercooked and some of the meat quite tough. We spoke to... More

I think the best way of describing the db San Antonio Hotel and Spa, at Buggiba, Malta is ‘Work in Progress’. Firstly, may I say I am very disappointed and annoyed that our travel company did not advise us that work was being undertaken at the hotel completing the recent major upgrade to the structure. Whilst the main structure received... More
