The Santana Hotel is a four star property situated in the north part of Malta in St.Paul’s Bay. It is a few minutes away from the magnificent Qawra promenade where guests can find a variety of tourists’ attractions including shops, bars and restaurants, a casino, bingo halls, a salsa club and various diving centers and sport facilities.
The bus terminus is conveniently located just a few meters away from the hotel thus giving guests the possibility to venture outside St. Paul’s Bay. From a placid walk along the promenade to a visit to the largest sandy beach on the Island, in the village of Mellieha just 5km away, or a bus ride to the ferry boat for a visit to the sister island of Gozo which is just an additional 10 minutes journey, St Paul’s Bay is sure a lovely area to be in.
The Santana Hotel offers the facilities of a rooftop outdoor pool (opens from May to October, weather permitting), for extra relaxation there is an indoor pool (closed in August), a fitness room, a games room and a sauna (at a charge). The attractive main restaurant, Moire, is buffet style. La Mentha at Moire is open daily and offers a la carte dining.

Abbie, United Kingdom
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
Nels, Leicester, UK
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!

Booked a comfort room, which had already been refurbished. Not a great view as requested but every other aspect of the hotel was good.
The best thing about my stay was...Food was vague and if good quality.

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
Barry & Jan, West Midlands UK
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... :/
Adam Gajda, Polska
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
