Exactly What We Needed

Stayed here recently for the AMP Lost & Found festival over the Bank Holiday weekend. Hotel Santana did the trick for us; a lovely rooftop pool with plenty of space for sunbeds and an efficient pool bar. The breakfast was great to set us up for every day with plenty of hot and cold variety. Booking taxis at reception was quite difficult but I think that was because of the time we went and how busy it was because of the festival as they were very expensive! The room did the trick for the four of us with plenty of clothes storage, a full-length mirror and a small fridge with a good-sized bathroom and powerful shower. However, as the shower was a 'walk-in' style everything did become very wet and damp in there once it had been used. Overall, it was a great find for us as it definitely represented strong value for money and I would return to Hotel Santana if I was to head back for the festival.

Good Hotel

Hotel was clean and welcoming. The rooms were spacious, we had a balcony and a fridge in the room. The bathroom was lovely with a big walk in shower and a reasonable hairdryer, some free toiletries. Breakfast was excellent with lots of choice of cereals, cold meats and cheese, cooked food, all very good.

The best thing about my stay was...

Beautiful big room.

Great place and staff

Upon arrival the reception was flooded, the staff were professional and apologetic and remained very calm and welcoming. The check-in was quick and easy. We had a lovely modern twin room and it was clean and had everything we needed. Beds were comfy, bathroom was clean and the cleaning staff were great too. Staff always answered any queries and also suggested some nice restaurants within 10 mins walk. Lots of parking directly outside the hotel for those who rent a car - like we did.

The best thing about my stay was...

The hotel was a great price and situated just a short stroll away from the busy part!

Good hotel

Been before thats why we keep coming back room was excellent and the shower was hot and powerful any questions I had the hotel swiftly dealt with the breakfast was good they even slice the bread for you instead of waiting for people to cut their own which can keep you back. The hotel is very handy for the bus station about 3minute walk which is bliss after the bus journeys we made. You can change your English or Scots pounds in several shops very near the hotel. Alexanders is just down from the hotel does a far better exchange than back home but the diy shop around the corner along from the police station is usually higher by a couple of cents and its only another few minutes away

The best thing about my stay was...

Visiting the markets and Valletta and mosta dome. If visiting mosta dome be sure to eat breakfast or lunch at the Olympic cafe a real gem which the locals eat in. Very good grub and very cheap prices dont go anywhere else even the starter portions would fill an adult

Excellent stay in the Santana

Just returned from a 10 night A/I stay at the lovely Santana Hotel in Qawra Malta. We were really pleased with the Hotel. The Staff are excellent and cannot do enough for you (they make this Hotel and are a credit to their employers, particularly Karen at the bar and Anton in the restaurant). The food was excellent with plenty of variety and the puddings were to die for. We will definitely be returning in the future and our only slight negative comment is that the bar area is very small for the size of the Hotel (in winter) and because of the good standard of entertainment and regular visitors from outside the Hotel to watch the entertainment it can get very crowded with lack of seating. This however didn't detract from the holiday and I would certainly recommend this Hotel.

The best thing about my stay was...

The Staff and the standard of food available.

Do 4 gwiazdek trochę brakuje... :/

Muszę powiedzieć, że pierwsze wrażenie w hotelu nie było najlepsze i początkowo trochę żałowaliśmy naszego wyboru. Bywałem już w różnych hotelach 4*, dlatego mogę powiedzieć że ten hotel ma standard co najwyżej 3*. Zabrudzone i uszkodzone ściany oraz wykładziny na hotelowych korytarzach, w pokojowej łazience zardzewiała bateria w umywalce, pordzewiały wąż w baterii prysznicowej i "latająca" deska sedesowa nie mieści się raczej w kanonie hoteli o standardzie 4*, a do tego klimatyzacja włączana tylko w godzinach od 15:00 do 6:00 rano (a czasami tylko do 3:00), o czym nie było ani słowa w ofercie. Jak stwierdził manager hotelu, to ponoć standard we wszystkich hotelach 3 i 4 * na Malcie - jeżeli tak, to chyba jednak należałoby wspomnieć o tym w ofercie. Poza tym pokoje w hotelu są dość czyste - sprzątanie i wymiana ręczników odbywa się codziennie. Dużym plusem jest mała lodówka w pokoju. Kolejnymi rzeczami, które bardzo przypadły nam do gustu to basen na dachu hotelu, z którego roztacza się przepiękny widok na całą Maltę oraz gustownie urządzony ogród Zazen, gdzie można było relaksować się na wygodnych sofach bądź fotelach od rana do wieczora. :) Oczywiście w określonych godzinach, zarówno na basenie, jak i w ogrodzie do dyspozycji gości jest bar. Ponadto przez cały dzień dostępna jest rownież kawiarenka hotelowa. Jako że przyjechaliśmy na 14 dni, wybraliśmy opcję All Inclusive - jeżeli chodzi o wyżywienie, to śniadania są raczej średnie (codziennie to samo), natomiast obiady i kolacje są już bardziej urozmaicone i każdy może wybrać coś dla siebie, dodatkowo po każdym obiedzie i kolacji dostępne są również desery - różnego rodzaju ciasta, lody i owoce. Jeżeli chodzi o napoje, to mamy do dyspozycji lokalne alkohole, wino i piwo, kilka coctaili, kawy, gorącą czekoladę, herbaty, napoje chłodzące typu ice tea oraz soki i wody mineralne. Kolejnym dużym plusem tego hotelu jest jego Personel, który poza naprawdę nielicznymi przypadkami jest bardzo miły, zawsze uśmiechnięty, pomocny i przyjazny. Reasumując, był to nasz drugi 14 dniowy pobyt na Malcie, poprzednim razem byliśmy w hotelu 3*, dlatego po 4* spodziewałem się nieco wyższego komfortu, jednakże w miarę upływu czasu zmieniliśmy zdanie i uważamy że mimo początkowego niesmaku, wakacje zaliczamy do udanych. :)

The best thing about my stay was...

Swimming pool, Zazen garden, nice staff
