I visited Malta for 5 days and stayed at the Sunflower, I was travelling on my own and after reading the reviews decided to stay at the Sunflower Hotel.
The hotel is a very average 3 star, cheap and cheerful.
I went half board which was a total let down. The breakfast was continental breakfast, ham, cheese and cereal. The food was not covered and therefore was open to lots of flies.
The orange juice was very watered down and had no orange flavour, the milk was not cold for the cereal. I decided to eat out for breakfast after my first morning experience.
The evening meal was average, quite cold and not a lot of choice. I ended up only having 2 evening meals in the hotel as it was not up to good standard, again the flies were an issue.
My room was again very average, it was clean and basic. This reflected in the price I had paid for this short break.
The pool is on the roof top of the hotel, it was nice, abit tired but gave lovely views over Malta.
The location of the hotel is very poor. It is set back from the sea front, felt I was walking through residential streets, pavements were littered with rubbish bin bags and dog muck. This caused a problem when walking back at night with the streets being poorly lit. Stray cats were also everywhere which came out at night.
Bugibba overall is very run down and dirty, if you visit Malta I would never stay again in Bugibba, it is trying to be a very run down Benidorm.
