    Clean and cosy
    We required a room as a stop over between flights. While we very pleased with the room we found that it was very small. We wouldn’t want to stay there longer than one night. If we had a longer stay we surely would have upgraded. However the bed was very comfortable and the room was very clean and cosy. WIFI wasn’t very good but worked very well in the lobby. The staff were very hospitable and accommodating. Would I book a room in future? Definitely Yes but A larger one next time.

    Undeserved 4 star rating for Santana hotel
    Arrived a bit early and placed my possessions in storage room and enjoyed the pool upstairs until check in time. Wouldn’t have known I could do that if didn’t hear other early arrivals being offered that opportunity. When I checked into my room found the television was difficult to find an English speaking news channel. The man sent up explained that since they changed the television service they now have about 100 channels, but none come in clearly. The breakfast meal was terrible, powdered eggs, cold potatoes. The drinks in the bar were very expensive literally 3x what I paid for the same drink at my hotel the night before on Comino island.

    Better than expected
    We had a good stay at the Santana. All the staff were helpful and friendly. The breakfast had good, standard breakfast options. I heard people ask for more variety, but really it's breakfast and at home people often eat the same things. The hotel is starting to show it's age in the rooms and hallways - could probably use new flooring. I'd like more outlets for charging phones and tablets. Close to everything you need in Buggiba and especially close to the main bus terminal making for easy transport options.

    Good 6.0
    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.

    Rather OK
    Very good hotel, good location, very good breakfast. The hotels pool is OK but it is closed too early as 7pm. It should open at lease to 9pm when it is winter. And unfortunately the hotels guest have to pay for the sauna.
