First time holiday in Qawra and this the San Antonio Hotel.
Overall a really great holiday, considering this is a high volume hotel the overall service levels were really excellent. Could not do much about the weather, but 10/14 days were very reasonable.
Would be really top notch if the local brews and and sprits were replace by brands that we might recognise, other wise AOK.
The evening entertainment was the most professional that we have seen on a holiday of this type, really teaches the canary islands hotels how to keep the holiday makers so well entertained, well done.
Great for the bus station just 100yards away. Valetta never ceases to fascinate us, the Easter decorations were still up when we first arrived, what a magnificent sight.

Very lovely hotel. The frontage is smart and clean and the entrance reception is airy bright modern and welcoming - definitely a lovely class of hotel. Rooms are spacious and the bathroom was too. Would recommend a sea view room. My only issue was that there wasn't really any plug sockets near the mirror so was a bit difficult to dry and/or straighten hair. Take a short extension lead with you. We chose all inclusive when we booked which was exactly what we wanted for our 3 night break. There was only 2 a la carte restaurants open when we travelled but both very nice with good service. The coffee/cafe part of the hotel which welcomes AI, public and paying guests is lovely and the cakes and speciality coffees are delicious so expect to put on a few pounds here!! The buffet breakfast area gets very crowded and it can be noisy and busy and a bit offputting for those wanting more of an intimate eating experience, but the choice was very good. The tea and coffee drinks set up is self service and can have long queues and we found English tea to be scarce so if you love coffee, you'll be find. There are also lots of elderly people who stay here and some with mobility issues so there are numerous frames, scooters and the like and the lifts get very busy which wasn't a problem for us as we took the stairs always. Just around the corner from Bugibba main bus terminal so all buses start and end here in this area. Get the bus app for your mobile phone as it is really helpful to know which bus and route to take if you are doing a DIY tour of the island by bus. You can get a bus to the ferry port for travel to Gozo which takes about 45 mins. The staff were very helpful and naturally spoke excellent English. We were unfortunate with the weather is it was extremely wet and windy during our short break but what do you expect in February - some people are lucky but on this occasion, it was against us a little, so we were unable to use the pool and outside area, but we would definitely return to this hotel. Enjoy.

Stayed: February 2018

Hotel lives up to all photos on booking websites. We stayed for one week mid April 2018.

Fab reception and smooth check in process. We had a room overlooking the sea which was lovely. Very close to Buggiba promenade, Buggiba Square and the bus station (we traveled to and from Valetta for €3 each)!

Hotel is spotlessly clean. Rooms and towels made up / refreshed every day. Plenty of available sun loungers at this time of year. Table tennis bats / crazy golf club and ball available if you pay €5 refundable deposit st reception.

There were three restaurants open - normal Guillez buffet restaurant, Tagine buffet restaurant (use as many times as you want during stay) and dBistro a la Carte restaurant (one meal per stay). I was disappointed that the other 3 restaurants and rooftop bar/pool area were not open at this time of the year as the selection / variety of restaurants was one of the reasons I chose this hotel. This is the only reason I have not given a 5 star review.

Food was plentiful, lots to choose from and always hot. Drinks available in restaurants - sprite, coke, Fanta, water & selection of fruit juice. Red, Rose & White wine available on tap as well as Stella and Berliner beers. Coffee and cakes available in cafe Maroc throughout the day - carrot cake was amazing. Kozy Bar opens in the afternoon for cocktails and other alcoholic drinks including proseccco as well as all mentioned above. Kozy bar is also the location for the nightly entertainment starting from 21:30 - 22:25/22:30. Good variation of entertainment (including kids mini disco from 20:30) throughout the week but the best was the divas and legends night where there were about 15 singers and dancers from the animation team!

All hotel staff were friendly and accommodating, nothing was ever too much trouble. The bar staff were up for a laugh. There were also 3 photographers present throughout the day and night snapping away. We bought a key ring as a momento.

All in all, I will definitely be recommending the hotel to family and friends. If you are still trying to decide on a hotel in Malta - go with this one - you won’t regret it. I really enjoyed our holiday at db San Antonio - maybe I will return one day to try out the other three restaurants.
