Relax Inn Hotel

Reviewed October 8, 2012

If you are looking for a cheap base for you holiday then the relax Inn is very good. It is a small hotel in the centre of Buggibba but not in a noisy part. The buffet breakfast while limited in choice was plentiful, the rooms are cleaned daily and the recrption is manned and the rooms are adequate and don't expect stunning views. However the cost is very reasonable and in July it's hot all the time, lovely !

Great location for all the buses to tour the island on the weekly pass (12 euros), needs a facelift but is very clean and food good. Staff friendly. Wish I was still there! Sun trap on the roof terrace and the pool is good for cooling off but not for swimming because it is so small. We all felt we would go there again. To sum up, basic, clean, central and friendly,

Stayed at the hotel for a short weekend 4 day trip on All inclusive basis. We were allocated twin rooms for our party, although my father was travelling alone. The rooms were adequate clean and comfortable.
The rest of the hotel was a different story, The all inclusive package is not like any others I have been to. The bar at the rear of the hotel was extremely hot,no windows or air con, impossible to sit in. Just a small bar area, with a few glasses and a limited selecetion of drinks. We were told that no drinks in glasses or bottles could be taken to the roof terrace, which was also tired and could have done with some updating, umbrellas plants etc.
There was nowhere comfortable to go relax, we were told we could take our drinks to our rooms.
The restaurant food was simple and tasty with adequate choices, but the restaurant timings were limited. We arrived just on 8.00 one evening as had been on the beach until quite late, and felt like we were holding back the staff, the meal was hurried and rushed with 3 courses eaten within half an hour. When my father complained to the waiter, he initially was perturbed saying that he worked hard and that they were waiting to finish and close up, but then tried to smooth it over offering us a bottle of wine to drink at our leisure. For an all inclusive hotel I felt the restaurant opening hours for dinner was very restrictive.

stayed half board early sept and found food very nice,soup followed by a choice of two main dishes served on your plate saving the usual buffet scramble then a choice of two cheesecake type sweets or a fruit salad plus 3 flavours of ice cream,not a massive choice but perfectly acceptable for a smallish hotel and very well cooked,drinks on hb are extra but cheaper than most local bars,would'nt recomend the all inc though,no entertainment and bar area tiny and worn.Staff very friendly and helpful we asked for sea view and unexpectedly got one room 403,towels and rooms cleaned daily to a high standard fridge 1.50euro per day aircon is free and very effective, safe 2.50 euro per day.Location is perfect for all amenities bugibba has to offer,Overall yes it,s a bit dated but as a lot of the guests were repeat custumers it must be doing something right and we would definatly come again.

Room Tip: ask for a sea view

Requested a top floor and got one (504 sea view). Very clean rooms well kept a little dated but for the price you get excellent value in a central location 1 minute from Bugibba main square. We paid only 220€ for a week HB in September.

Food was good (Typical British sea side hotel style food), fresh, decent quality. You only get a choice of 1 meat or fish and a soup or pasta to start, plus a different coloured daily tarte for desert, but for the price this is what we expected. Breakfast is continental and perfectly adequate. Cooked options charged from 1.20€ to 2.50€. Restaurant stopped serving at 8pm which was far too early. Service is rushed, we never managed more than 30 minutes to dine on 3 courses! As hard as we tried you cannot get to sit down before your order for a starter is taken. Not really a problem, just amusing.

If you are on a budget and want a very clean place to sleep and eat then this is an excellent choice for you. If you want a hotel with loads of facilities stay elsewhere as the hotel does not offer more than a very basic bar, little plunge pool and small roof terrace. Served our needs and was a better than average no frills choice. Would stay here again for a cheap week away. Tends to attract mainly British guests and lots of regulars!

Room Tip: Request a room at the back away from the road - Rooms 501 to 504 or 401 to 404 are best. Fairly quie...

all inclusive is a joke! does'nt serve lunch! we arrived at 9.10pm and the dinning room was closed, therefore nothing for us to eat! only 2 chioces for evening meal, 1 fish dish, 1 meat dish!
The "bar" is a joke! it's a fridge in a tired old room at the back of the hotel, no air con, no entertainment!
Rooms are small and not suited for family's, although they are cleaned every day.
We had to check out at 11am and our transfer was'nt picking us up until 6.30pm, when I enquired about a room to change and freshen up before our flight home I was told there where no rooms available but we could use the public tiolets!!!!
this resulted in me paying 85euro's for a room at a diffrent hotel!

We stayed here for 10 days in September on a half board basis. When we first arrived we were taken to our room and shown around. Room 201
We were on the second floor and had a balcony but not such a good view . We were happy with this as we were at the back of the hotel and it was so peaceful..
The room was large and really very clean . We had maid service and clean towels every day . The air con worked really well .The room had a hairdryer and kettle. There were also cups available for your use ..
The room had a blackout blind and the beds were comfy with two pillows each.
The staff could not do enough to make your stay pleasant.
THE FOOD >>>>>>>> This was amazing they certainly have fantastic chefs . There was a set menu but you had a few choices . The roast beef just melted in your mouth . Every single meal was so tasty I couldnt wait for the next evening to see what I would savour...
Excellent value for money I would certainly recommend this to people and would love to go there again .
Thank you Relax Inn

Room Tip: see if you can get a room at the back of the hotel it is quieter
