Booked this holiday based on good reviews but found that the hotel was still being refurbished, by which I mean rebuilt. Our room was the only one in an unoccupied corridor which was filthy with plaster dust. The noise was wholly unacceptable and the spa facilities were not finished. On the plus side, the food and catering were excellent and... More

Have stayed at this hotel many times now its always my first choice when in Malta the rooms are very clean and the housekeepers come every day although sometimes a bit early so its a wise move to place the Do not disturb sign on the door handle looking forward to staying here again after the recent refurbishment

Staff at this hotel work very hard and are always cheerful The rooms are always cleaned to a very high standard food is very good with a good choice of menu. Swimming pool has just been upgraded and more sun beds are available The only bad point is the entertainment is so old fashioned

We have stayed in this hotel a few times now and have never been disappointed. We have bed and breakfast there as we prefer to eat out at different restaurants. There is a good choice at breakfast everything from cooked to fruit. The rooms are always cleaned to a high standard and so is the pool area. The pool has... More

1)There is construction going on in front of the Hotel. It is very loud and starts at 7.30-8 am every day including Saturday. There is no use to book a room with sea view – this will be a view to the construction. This construction work might take further couple of weeks/months (?) 2) there are insects in the hotel....

We were very disappointed. Our room was ok and we were lucky to be on the side away from the construction going on there which started as early as 7am. The food was the worst I have ever had. Frizzled eggs, tinned fruit, black boiled eggs, toaster which did not toast both sides. Dinner was steamed pizza, packet soup, dried... More

I spent 3 weeks at the San Antonio from end of October to mid November 2013. San Antonio Hotel, Qawra, is handily situated 200 metres from Bugibba bus station so easily reached, by bus, from the airport. Presently there are major developments being made to the hotel, which will be closed until April 2014. The 5th floor is being demolished... More

On arrival to San Antonio. We had the driver ask for a tip in which I found rude. We got to reception and had nobody to escort our bags and I was also asked to pay wifi to print off my receipt for the holiday. A little bit of initiative would have helped. Building works the days spent at the... More
