I had the misfortune of booking this hotel, blind, in May 13, I stayed for 7 nights half board. The food was in edible and I chose to eat out for every meal. How a chef could put that muck up on a hot plate is beyond me. On the taxi ridgeback to the airport I lost my I phone,...

Went there in May 09, Malta is great and the hotel was ok, our boy was 3 back then and he enjoyed the roof pool etc. Breakfast is basic, but eating out closeby is cheap. Places to visit are valletta & sliema, the bar street (in st. julians if I remember right) is nice too. There's no pushy marketing which...

The only good think for me there - was a price. 119 pounds for double room sea side with half board for a week. Very simple and budget old hotel. Food is not eatable! We were very disappointed with food, how coud chef just so spoil products? Does he really like how he do cooking? Staff are OK, but dont...

I visit Malta at least twice a year usually to a more basic but clean hotel but wanted a change and decided to upgrade to this hotel which was approximately 70 euros dearer but what a mistake to make.

In my opinion - this is a basic 3 star hotel, a bit rough around the edges, in a good position for a short stay in Bugibba, just up from the main square. Staff - very friendly and helpful. Cleanliness of the room on arrival- hairs on the floor, ceiling fan really dusty, loo brush and holder was a biohazard...
