My friend and I stayed at the Primera Hotel for Lost and Found Festival last month, and we were pleasantly surprised.

The room was great, really clean and have a lovely balcony looking out to the sea.

Staff were SO friendly and helpful, and checking in was a breeze.

High recommend staying here for the festival, 15 minute walk to the aquarium and just round the corner from Buggiba Square!

It would be great if more fruit was served at breakfast.

Thanks guys, we will be coming back :)

Thank you to Jan and the gents on the front desk at the Primera Hotel, Buggiba, Malta. The hotel is great value for money, its in the best location throughout Buggiba and st pauls bay, 30 seconds from the sea front and 20 seconds walking from the main sq. Its has an amazing hug indoor pool and a small but perfectly fine and very clean rooftop pool which never really gets busy so you may find you have this to yourself! :) The views from the rooftop pool of the sea and also for the beautiful sunset at AMAZING - this melt all stresses away, instantly. Srdjan the maintenance guy has been working there for 6 years years, is super friendly and extra hard working, its nice to see the same faces year after year (this is my 4th visit to this hotel! this hotel is perfect in every way! :) I would HIGHLY recommend staying there above all other hotels in the area! Staff retention shows just how wonderful this place really is! See you all again very soon! Rachel

Room Tip: Ask for sea view - top floor (perhaps level 4 or 5 as it can get a little noisy late at night (as its in a prime location)

We are just back from another stay in the Primera Hotel. Didn't have breakfast or dinner, so can't comment on those, but as for the hotel itself, and the staff, we have no problems whatsoever with them.

Our room was spacious and clean with air conditioning, the towels were changed daily, we met a few of the housekeeping staff while we were there and all were very friendly and helpful, as were the reception staff, nothing was too much trouble.

The side sea view rooms with balcony have recently been refurb ished and are looking lovely.

The indoor pool was lovely and warm this time and we visited it frequently.


Looking forward to our return trip in October
Teresa Pattinson

Room Tip: If outside noise is a worry, book a higher level room

Just back from another wonderful trip to Malta. Stayed again at the Primera and yet again found it great. More improvements have been carried out, this time the side sea view rooms have had a face lift, giving them a more modern feel as the old decor was looking dated and tired. Yet again the staff were superb and friendly and we were treated as old friends as opposed to paying customers. Downstairs in the basement beside the indoor pool is the new torture chamber or "fitness room"! Lots of machinery in there to work off the Maltese beer, but not for me! Work has begun on upgrades to the rooms on the other side of the hotel to bring it up to the same standard as the side sea view rooms. It is reassuring to see Robert and his team acting on comments made on this site and others and not just ignoring them and to see how many improvements there have been in recent years is to be praised.
WE have booked again for October and can't wait to return.

Room Tip: If you are bothered by noise then try to get a room on a high level as the hotel is surrounded by bars and eateries
