“great weekend!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

We were so looking forward to our stay- arrived a bit late and were informed that we had to rush to our dinner as there was a christmas activity. Was a bit dissappointed at this stage but the receptionist together with the rest of the staff arranged to us a complimentary dinner at QZINS!
Food was really good here!
The rest of breakfasts and dinner was lovely too!
Hotel was super busy- an unfortunately some maltese fellows were too noisy but that has got nothing to do with the hotel, of course.
Will surely go again to try out the spa side of the hotel!

Room Tip: definitely worth the sea view!

I never thought the hotel was to be so much of my enjoyment of our holiday in Malta.

The Island is fantastic from many points of view but it is back at the hotel that you relax and dine to let the day's experiences sink in And this is exactly what we were able to do at the San Antonio. The Buffet Breakfasts and Dinners were much more than we expected for sheer choice and variety.

The rooms are very spacious with magnificent seaviews which should not be a problem to book as the hotel is spread out over the coastline.

Transport is cheap in Malta with day tickets for just €1.50 and the bus terminus is very near the Hotel. This proved to be another plus to us as we explored the many historical cities and medevial villages of Malta.

Room Tip: Easy to have seaviews.

It was a great experience in this hotel. The staff are very caring when you need them which was exactly what happened to me when I had a little accident in my room. They took over and assisted me fully. What a relief it was !

The place has been recently enlarged and refurnished. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and kept impeccably clean. The seaviews are stunning and almost everywhere as the hotel overlooks a long stretch of coastline.

With a bus terminus just outside and low fares you practically have the run of this beautiful island available.

I cannot leave out the exquisite food we had. The choice from the buffet tables was very extensive and greatly cooked.

I honestly can say that we enjoyed every minute of it.

Room Tip: Plenty of rooms with seaviews.

We were on vacation here in October. Overall the hotel is nice. It's recently refurbished with some of that work still in progress in a few rooms. The hotel doesn't have a nice atmosphere. The restaurant and bar/entertainment area are really big rooms with just tables in it. No decorations at all.

The hotel is very noisy. We were on the 4th floor on the opposite side of the indoor entertainment but could very well hear it. Also when the neighbours on the sides or above and below flushed the toilet or showered that was very audible. The room had no sound proofing on the hallway side and guests had no manners, talking loudly while walking through the corridor at night.

Breakfast is English. So if you like something else than fried eggs, bacon, beans and baked potatoes you're very limited in the options. Skip the lunch and dinner buffet. Malta has better meals to offer and you're a 5 minute walk away from the restaurants in Buggiba.

Dear Sir / Madame,

Thank you for your review and comments regarding you pointed out which we will look into.

Our breakfast does include the full English Breakfast as you mentioned with a good selection of eggs cooked to your liking - live, our healthy section with dried and fresh fruit, Gluten Free selection and more. We suggest that you would ask our Restaurant Manager or his supervisors in future as had more items to offer.
We are sorry if you missed on our dinners as we can offer a good choice of food being buffet or a'la carte in 2 seperate restaurants with 6 different cuisines in total between them.

Thank You once more, we wish you the best of luck and look forward to host you again.

Best Regards,

Just ended our 3 nights weekend break and wanted to share what a nice relaxing break we had. Hotel is super clean, food is fresh and tasty. They try to differ food choices from a day to the next. Spa area is great too ... used indoor pool, jacuzzi, sauna and steam room.

Will visit again for sure
