db San Antonio Hotel & Spa

Hi

Hope you can help. We are looking at booking the db San Antonio Hotel & Spa. Can anyone advise, does the hotel overlook the beach and is there a road between the hotel and the beach?

If so, are there any other hotels in the area that are right next to the beach or is it such a quiet road that it doesn't matter? It sort of puts me off.

Thanks

The San Antonio is a couple of hundred yards from the seafront.

There is a main road in front of the sea . between it and the hotel.

It is on a quite busy street with lots of restaurants , cafes and bars . Another hotel , the Dolman is very close and the bus station is a minutes stroll away,

I am sure the San Antonio would be a lovely place to stay.

Gondola,go to Skyline Webcams,and look at Qawra's edge,you will see the road near S/Antonio hotel and the Dolmen hotel.Look on the map for S/Antonio hotel,its almost next to the Dolmen.

It's not much of a beach there. Very small. About a 3/4 minute walk down a slight hill to get there. Unless it's changed from last year you have to pay for sunbeds even if you are staying at the san antonio. Mind you they give you a free bottle of water lol.

Do note that Bugibba & Qawra are not really beach resorts, the coast here is rocky with a small manmade beach. The promenade is nice for a stroll.

Thanks for your helpful comments. Are there any hotels in the St Pauls area that are near the sea but not right by the road or does the road run right along the sea front?

I've also looked at Mellieha Bay and that looks similar. It sort of puts us off as the road looks quite busy - any ideas appreciated.

There are only two places that are on the sea side of the road, the Sunny Coast Resort (apartments) and the Gillieru Harbour Hotel. The Sunny Coast is in Qawra near the opposite end of Qawra to the San Antonio and the Gilerieu is in St Paul's Bay. In both cases the road runs alongside the hotel, but not between the hotel and sea. It is far busier at the Sunny Coast end, but both will get traffic noise in rooms on the road side as the face the road directly. In the case of the San Antonio, the hotel gardens/pool areas separate sea facing rooms from the road.
