Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 16, 2014

This was our 4th stay at Sunseeker and we have always been satisfied. This isn't a 5 star hotel, but it doesn't pretend to be one either. It does however provide excellent 3 star self-catering accommodation. It is immaculately clean, has friendly and helpful staff, great range of on-site facilities including 2 swimming pools, mini mart (that isn't a huge rip-off!), gym and a games room. The breakfasts are cheap and filling and if you don't feel like cooking dinner then the hotel is within walking distance (no more than 5 minutes) to a wide range of restaurants. I would definitely recommend Sunseeker if this is the kind of holiday you are looking for. Great for families travelling on a budget.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back to avoid noise from the garbage collection every morning.

Good value for money, the apartment was the penthouse and right next to the roof top pool, spacious, comfortable, staff incredibly friendly and helpful. The only slight negative is that the showers were difficult to operate in that the temperature fluctuated and the pressure was minimal. However this did not affect the holiday in the slightest, it was still perfectly possible to have a full shower and it was only for a week. There was a restaurant which we didn't use, which offered breakfast full or continental in the mornings, there was no need to book, you could just show up. Also a luggage room to store your cases after checking out.
The room was cleaned and the linen and towels were changed once while we were there (a week) The facilities were excellent, two bathrooms, fridge, freezer, oven, microwave, plates and cutlery. Three balconies! Brilliant location, very short walk to the beach, short walk into town (Bugibba), local shops and restaurants and take away's, bus links. The hotel itself had a roof top pool and bar, and an indoor pool, gym, mini market, which was reasonably priced, bar and showed DVDs on an evening downstairs. One day we missed the shop opening times and the staff member on the front desk opened it just for us! 24 hour reception service. Lovely, lovely place to stay, I would definitely stay there again

Room Tip: The penthouse was amazing, we were very lucky to get it. Had a double bed and two singles so good fo...

This was a very cheap late deal and for what we paid for the flights and accommodation we couldn't of gone camping in the uk, so although everything was a bit basic it was good for the price. The staff at sunseekers were very helpful and Bugibba itself is very nice. The bus service is amazing and at only €6.50 for a weekly unlimited travel bus ticket , fantastic value,went somewhere different every day , even the bus drivers were friendly :)

This is a cheap and cheerful place, spotlessly clean with friendly staff. The kitchen was well equipped with everything you could possibly need, however some of the saucepans had seen better days and needed replacing. Bedding was changed weekly with a towel change midweek.

Unfortunately for us as non smokers, previous guests had smoked in the kitchen so every time we returned to the room we were aware of the smell of cigarettes, it wasn't so bad that we wanted to move but there all the same. There was a notice in the bedroom asking guests not to smoke in bed but iwe got the feeling that smoking was allowed as there were two ashtrays provided.

The sliding window of the kitchen had a big gap so that when the wind was in the wrong direction it was quite cold and the curtains moved because of the breeze. The beds were quite comfortable but mattresses were old and the springs creaked every time we moved.

All in all for the money we paid it wasn't bad. I would have liked to score it more highly but for the lack of replacement of worn furnishings and fittings.

fridge is very noisy at night, so close bedroom door,or it could wake you up.

This hotel is a difficult place to review. As most reviewers have suggested. The hotel is basic, clean and for the price it is difficult to find reason to not recommend it. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The store on-site is limited but useful. The selection of products in the room on arrival was a nice touch due to our late arrival.

However, it was not all positives for us. Like another reviewer, we also found the room quite dark. The balcony was also gloomy, shaded and had no view whatsoever. As a result we spent no time at all sitting out on it. There was also a slight musty smell noticeable on a few occasions, closer inspection suggested that this came from what appeared to be a small damp patch in the wall between the fridge and shower. On the whole the room was really clean but could really do with more than one maid visit during a weeks holiday. A final slight niggle was that we found the indoor pool quite cold, however I am not sure if the hotel claim that the indoor pool is heated so this maybe a mute point.

Overall the positives and negatives we experienced balanced each other out. We were neither impressed or disappointed with our stay, we felt we ultimately got what we paid for and as such were not disappointed due to the rated being so low.

I would ideally like to score the Sunseeker 2.5 but since I can't do this on the TripAdvisor system, I have opted for 3 as I think scoring a 2 would be overly critical.

5 nights stay here. Easily the best place I have stayed (visited Malta 5 times before). Very friendly and accommodating staff. Clean and spacious studio, within 2 mins walk to the seafront, shops and bus terminal. The hotel also has a handy Mini market where you can get all your goods at reasonable prices. Satellite TVs (2) showing a range of films and sports in the chillout bar area...

Generally good value for money. Reason a top rating is not given:

Remote control in room for TV is hired at 2.50 euros/night
No free internet / wifi - 2 euros/hour
Gym is not free either.

Would be visiting Sunseeker again in the future.
