“Won't find better for money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2014

This is our second stay here and we were more than happy on both visits. We booked a double bed & breakfast. The beds are both double in room and room is the biggest we have ever stayed in abroad. Breakfast is the same as everywhere else abroad plenty of everything, cannot comment on evening meal as didn't try it. Pool area is great and theres a adult only roof top which is really nice, Little sun trap. The hotel is old but it's clean I could not fault it on the most important points of a holiday. Pool, bed, breakfast,staff and sun all 10 out of 10
If you want a luxury break then you have to pay luxury prices. We paid £182.00 per person for hotel B&B for 10 nights flights and private transfer to and from hotel. Well be there again soon

Room Tip: Double rooms have really good double beds one per person

We stayed at this hotel for a week in April the hotel was clean as was the room the staff where well mannered and pleasant we had too go over the road for out lunch too the sister hotel and the entertainment was also in the sister hotel at night kids disco bingo and quiz but we did have a pub Molly Maloney pub which was a sports bar football rugby etc the only complaint I would have is that if you wast chips you won't get them at night they are for kids only you will have too ask the waiters for chips meals for your kids as they are made too order for the kids your towel are only changed every second day and the bed is only made every second day as well you can walk down to the square it's about a ten minute easy walk and you can get around the island by bus easily.

Room Tip: Go for a low room or a pool view

Stayed for 17 nights basic hotel foods not up to much and we had a massive patch of mould groing in the corner of the room. Not very warm in winter. New years eve gala meal consited of the same food they serve up every other day but if you get in first you get treated to a bottle of water and a nice clean red table cloth (tables are usually so sticky you have to peel the cutlery off them) Cleaners are miserable, If you just want somewhere to lay your head then it's ok but after looking around there's alot better on offer for roughly the same price.

It is with regret that you did not seem to enjoy the New Year Gala Dinner as we received nothing but excellent feedback over the Christmas and New Year period with many repeat returns since then due to this factor. Wine was available to all tables during that evening with extra waiting staff for that purpose.

Our aim is to provide a value for money product of which we continue to work on and thank you for your comments to help us do this with your feedback.

Very basic accommodation. Our arrival was greeted by a woman at reception shouting & giving out about everything about the whole place. Our room wasn't ready when we arrived so we were told to go for a walk & come back a couple of hours later, which we did. When we came back the room still wasn't ready so we just hung around the reception area. Then we saw a woman giving out that her room wasn't ready & all of a sudden the rooms were ready! We got locked in our room one morning, lucky we were on the ground floor so the maintenance guy could jump over the balcony to get in, otherwise we really don't know how long it would have taken to sort it out. We went out for a walk one afternoon & when we got back one of the chairs on our balcony had been taken. It was the type of place that if you got up off your sunlounger it was not going to be there when you got back.....which we actually saw happen to a disabled guy. Very basic accommodation, you definitely get what you pay for with this place. It was a n experience never to be had again. Would not recommend this place.

It is with regret that your stay with us did not meet your expectations.

As you are aware and advertised within the information from your agent check in time is from 14.00 hours. For this reason many rooms would become available at the same time once given by the housekeeper.

We continue to offer a Low Cost value for money product with a high popularity throughout the year.

Unfortunately we can not be held responsible for the actions of guests in resort but only deal with any situation that may occur.

Read all the reviews and you will get the picture. You are paying b&b price for all inclusive.
What was good, room decent size,
Breakfast,
Lunch.
What wasn't so good.
Evening meal food could be served hotter,
Bahavior of some guests,
In blue sea there where examples of sun bed reservation despite signs saying this would not be tolerated.
Noisy corridors,
Lack of atmosphere in Molly Malones.
Choice of tv channels,
Best advice is to book B&B plenty of opportunity to eat out locally at reasonable price, local meal in the square starter, main, dessert, coffee & liqueur €19.

Having read some of the reviews, I wasn't sure what to expect but i have to say, I was pleasantly surprised and enjoyed my break. I arrived for a 4 day cheap break away in Malta and I picked Bugibba because I stayed in the St.Pauls Bay area 22 and 32 years ago !
The transfer from the Airport to the Hotel took about 40 minutes as we had to drop off a few other traveller's at their respective hotels first. I did notice on route to the hotel, how developed this tiny island is these days and was a little worried that it would be 'too touristy' for me. Check in at the hotel was quick and easy - the staff were very friendly and helpful with advice and directions throughout my stay, I cannot fault their friendliness. I stayed in a ground floor room, near to the pool. The room itself was spacious and clean, albeit a little tired and dated. It wasn't the Ritz, but there again I wasn't paying to stay in the Ritz !! I had asked for a double bed but got two singles. It wasn't an issue for me, so I kept the room. I had booked the 'bed and breakfast' option as I wanted to get out and about, exploring the local cuisines etc. The Hotel was tidy and the areas I saw were kept clean. Breakfast was basic but perfectly adequate for my needs - there was cereal, breads, toast, jam/marmalade, hot and cold drinks as well as a hot breakfast.
The area around the pool was kept reasonably clean and tidy. There were plenty of sunbeds and hardly any 'reserving' of them. My only moan was nothing to do with the hotel itself, just a handful of other guests - Although there were staff clearing up around the pool, bins were provided for the guests to take responsibility and throw their rubbish away - sadly, some 'Brits' just left their empty plastic cups and straws by their sunbeds, some just a few feet from the nearest bin !!! Also, as some of the guests were on a 'fully inclusive' basis, it was almost a challenge for them to drink their own body weight in free alcohol all day !!
I was a bit apprehensive when I found out that there was a group of middle aged northerners on a stag party, staying at the hotel. Although they were a bit raucous on their first day, they were polite and friendly and had won most of the other guests over, including me, by the end of the week !
I decided to venture into Valletta on the Wednesday and took the local transport; a couple of minutes walk from the hotel to the bus stop. The bus journey took about 45 minutes and cost 1.5 euro's return. You could also hop on and off the bus as many times as you wanted to - exceptional value for money !
Valletta, is a stunning port and of course, is the capital of Malta. Visit the upper Barracha Gardens at midday and you will see the cannons being fired from the harbour walls (they also fire them at 4pm). I also took a half day tour on the Thursday to the Blue Grotto and Marsaxlokk, a stunning fishing village. The cost was 23 euro's but that did not include the 8 euro boat journey to the Blue Grotto. The boat journey was about 20 minutes in and around the caves, with crystal clear waters and beautiful blue waters. Just be mindful that if you want to the Blue Grotto, pick a calm day with no wind - if it's too windy, the boats don't run and we were lucky as they were running the day we visited, but not the two days prior to that ! The weather was beautiful, getting warmer as the week progressed ! The wind can be quite chilly and the evenings cool but the days were very warm and sunny. Apparently, the summer season starts around the 2nd May and temperatures can climb to the mid 40's in the shade during the summer months !
All in all, a very enjoyable stay and I probably would return back to the hotel if I wanted a nice, cheap break away in the sun as it was good value for money !

Room Tip: The corridors and rooms near to the lifts get quite noisy where the revellers are coming back from a...

we recently stayed in this hotel for four nights as a stopover on our way home from a fab holiday in Gozo. we arrived fairly early on Tuesday 22nd April and had a room allocated to us straight away by friendly and efficient reception staff. the room its-self (3646) was clean, fairly large and overlooking the pool.
we were staying on an all inclusive basis and had paid £12.50 a night so this hotel was a bit of a bargain price for us and having read some reviews our expectations were not that high.
we went across the road to the sister hotel and had our lunch which was fine - a good choice and once more friendly staff.
as the days progressed we found the breakfasts to be great-a good choice of the usual fare, we weren't around the hotel for lunch or snacks and in general there was a fair amount of choice at dinner. however if you are fussy (like me !) you might struggle! there wasn't much of a choice for vegetarians but you could ask the chef for something to be cooked specially for you and if I had stayed longer I would have-once again the waiting and kitchen staff were eager to help and friendly.
the all-inclusive drinks were fine although plastic beakers at dinner and at the bar area at night is a bit of a let down - most people can behave with proper glasses I think!
the biggest asset of the hotel is its staff who were helpful and friendly. from our experience any problems were sorted straight away-our shower was mended almost as soon as we reported the problem.
the hotels biggest downfall was some of the clientele it attracts- the staff had a lot to put up with from certain rude guests who can't be bothered with basic niceties in life eg 'please' and 'thankyou' and leaving a wake of plastic cups around the pool area - unfortunately it was the Brits - no wonder we get a bad name.
would we go again? only for a short break perhaps but this isn't a downer on the hotel more the guests !
