Hotel Santana, St. Paul's Bay
Quite a walk to water and restaurants. Pictures make it look much closer to waterfront. View from our room was not pretty.......Surrounding areas seemed questionable and dirty. Not where I would want to walk at night. Breakfast was very good! Staff just ok.

A recommended hotel
The hotel was very pleasant indeed. It is conveniently placed for access to the waterfront of St Paul’s Bay, the bus station, and the open-top bus tour. The restaurant provides buffet meals with a fair choice of dishes.

Don't forget to visit the Bugibba temple!
Pleasant two night stay and as I know how difficult it is to park anywhere in Malta chose the hotel because of the large public car park right outside. Breakfast was a basic buffet. Swimming pool on roof o.k, with lots of room for sun loungers. A hint for anyone into archaeology The Buġibba Temple, can be found in the grounds of the Dolmen hotel which is only 5 mins walk away.

Friendly and Helpfull Staff
My Mother has just spent one month at this hotel. She goes to Malta at least once a year. The last few years she has stayed at the Santana. The staff are very friendly and helpful. They usually accomodate me with my request for a particular room and i am very appreciative of that. My Mother looks forward to her visits here. Her first choice for Malta is this hotel.

Worst hotel experience
Hotel room very small, with no view, and really not as clean as hotels that I am used to. No excuse for a bathroom sink to be blocked for 3 days before a cleaner noticed. T.V. had 2 channels and both of them kept jumping, so we couldn't watch anything. Breakfast not nice. Choice of lots, but it was a sloppy breakfast, not enjoyable at all, we ate there one morning and didn't go back for the remainder of our 4 mornings. Staff not in the slightest bit helpful. We had problems with them looking for directions, they just basically told us to go to the bus stop. Sent us to the top floor to get towels, when we got up there, it was closed. We went back down to reception and she didn't apologise, just handed us towels from in the back. Why she couldn't have done that in the first place, I don't know. The computers in the computer room were not working for me to print out my return boarding pass, they didn't have a clue of how the computer could be fixed or who to get to help me. Really really unhelpful. I would NEVER stay here again. It cost way too much money for what we got. I travel all over the world, and this was one of my worst experiences. In my opinion, it was NOT a 4 star hotel.
