Pros: Food, Cocktails, Cabaret, service levels,
Location: Handy for shops and bars in Bugibba plus bus station and within easily walking distance of the Malta National Acquarium
First foreign holiday in some years for various reasons. We stayed at the San Antonio Resort & Spa in early January. After the first day the weather got a bit windy & colder than expected but better than most of Europe at the time. The hotel was really great - clean, tidy and well presented. The staff were smart, polite and very professional. We were on the all inclusive package - meals in the main restaurant Gueliez were excellent quality with a good choice of mains and desserts. We also had one dinner in the dBistro which was very enjoyable, easily the best Caesar Salad i've had in 20 years. The bar staff in Cafe Maroc and Kozy bar did a fabulous job particularly with the cocktails and the evening entertainment was of a surprisingly high standard, much better than some locally in Blackpool so with the free bar we were more than happy to watch the different shows each night (Only con was a slight aroma in our room - smelt like something to do with the fridge - and housekeeping weren't able to resolve it during our stay)

Pros: The staff were amazing.
Location: 5 min walk from the National Aquarium which was brilliant and 2 min from the bus station for getting around the island.
We stayed at the San Antonio at the end of November 2016 and really enjoyed it. Our room was immaculate and comfortable. The meals were delicious with plenty of choice, even for a vegetarian. But what really made it for us, was that all the staff were just so friendly, polite and helpful. It's a large hotel but they still manage to deliver that personal service you would expect from somewhere smaller.

Pros: Food very good
Cons: Spa facilities as mentioned above.
Nice hotel, shame outside pool isn't heated in winter months as too cold. Spa disappointing, only 1 steam room working and 2 saunas, no where to sit to relax and cool down even though there is a room for this within the treatment area, unused!
