Santana easily wins out of the ones you have chosen, followed by Sunflower (sister hotel to the Santana).

Time was that the Suncrest would have been up there (i.e. when it was owned by the Sol Group) but their standards have slipped further and further behind year on year and so if they can't be proud of their hotel how can we? It's comfortable enough and clean enough but I just can't think further than it being a waste of a property (that the current owners took over in mint condition).

I've never stayed at the Soleda or San Pawl so unable to give an objective recommedation.

Do you mean the San Pawl in Bugibba? If so I have stayed there a few times, and have found it comfortable. If your trip is in the summer I would suggest you spend a little extra and hae a superior room - 5th floor- they have proper air-con - well worth it

just came back today from malta first two days spent in a joke of a 4 star hotel called the suncrest .i think it was giving a 4 star rating in the 80s but would be a two star if that now .managed to get a transfer to the gillieur harbour hotel a small 50 room hotel which was much nicer and had great views across to st pauls island .as it your honeymoon dont stay at the suncrest you would very dissapointed .

Agree with Vicvegas, Gillieru is a good option - excellent restaurant too.Was there in summer 2005 - just hope they've got the aircon fixed!

Like my husband said in the last Vicvegas mailing. The Suncrest Hotel was very a very poor hotel and not a great start to our first stay in Malta. I believe it was a top notch hotel in its time but now is a shabby memory. The Gillieru Harbour Hotel was a 50 bedroom hotel in a quieter area with fantastic views over to St Pauls Island and has a very good restaurant attached that specialises in fresh fish. Not sure if its up to the standard of your other SSS'S as I can give no input but please do not stay at The Suncrest.
