Santana Hotel Overview

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. The Santana has also a bar/coffee shop which is open from early morning until late.

The hotel has 251 guestrooms comprising of Standard, Comfort and Superior rooms and a small number of Suites. They are all equipped with free Wi-Fi, tea and coffee making facilities, private facilities, cable TV, direct dial telephone, air-condition (on a timer) and balconies. Safe deposit boxes and mini-bars (filled on request) are at a charge payable locally.

The Santana Hotel is 24km away from Malta International Airport and 30 minutes far from Malta’s Capital city, Valletta.

Please Note: The rooftop pool is closed during the winter months and opens during April (weather permitting).

Note: A new hotel is being developed at the rear of the Santana Hotel therefore the Management of Hotel Santana has taken a decision to close down the Hotel between 4th of December 2017 and the 4th of January 2018 (both days included). Disruption will be kept to a minimum whilst work is carried out.

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. :)

Swimming pool, Zazen garden, nice staff

Holiday

We enjoyed our stay, some building work being carried out, I already knew about this, so I asked for a front facing room, which we got a couple of days into the holiday. We had a problem with our door , which after going reception was sorted, after giving us another key. Maintenance fixed the lock the next day. We where half board , I have no complaints, plenty choice .

The best thing about my stay was...

Happy hour and in the restaurant at night you had a bottle of wine buy one get one free the following night
