Spent 1 week there with my partner. Facility: The guesthouse is centrally located in the middle of Buggiba! The corridor was smelly by the cigarettes (it's a smoking facility). Our room's window was above the kitchen and if I opened the window food smell came in. Under the bed was some garbage (lid of a PET bottle, ball of paper,... More

In july my wife an I spent about 10 days in the Buccaneer guesthouse, and we found it very pleasant. Clean rooms with aircon and private bath, good food, very friendly and helpful staff. The position is also perfect, close to Bugibba square and bus terminus. If we return to Malta, we'll stay in The Buccaneer once again. Good for... More

Been to several places around Europe and stayed in several budget guest houses but staying at the Buccaneers was a very different experience. The room was good, with air conditioning and bathroom and toilet facilities. However, despite the variety of dishes they offer for dinner, the food was tasteless (pasta is good). The breakfast is next to nothing. Just toasts,... More

I spent 3 weeks at the Buccaneers Guest House in August 2013. It is a good accomodation quite close to the sea in Bugibba, offering a basic room sufficiently furnitured (washbowl, toilet, shower) with excellent air conditioning (that cannot be renounced in August). I choose the half board formula with breakfast (basic but enjoyable) and dinner (very good and plentiful).... More

Just returned from a wonderful two week stay at the Buccaneer. We had a spacious family room with balcony for us and 13 yr old. Father stayed in a single room. We were more than happy with the accomodation. The rooms were spotless with towels changed daily and the aircon made it very comfortable. Contrary to other reviews we found... More

Fabulous place to visit if you want to lose weight. I lost 7lbs in 6 days! Food terrible, breakfast disgusting. Croissants were stale, bread frozen and water came out of the small cheap margerine tubs when you opened it!The lasagne was inedible as were most of the evening meals. Charlie the owner wanted everything to be paid in cash upfront,... More

the place is central, very close to the beach. The rooms are big and all with air condition. The food is good and there is alot of choice. The staff is very helpful and always ready to help. If travelling alone or with friends or family it is ideal. Best in town..Would go there even tomorrow

OK, I know that it's a cheap place to stay and now I can't complain, but I'm fed up!! I'm staying here for 1 month and I am very unhappy... Cleaning leaves a lot to be desired, breakfast is poor and staff is unpleasant. If you let me give an advice, guys, and you can afford a better place, don't... More
